Fun Friday with a little help from my friends . . .

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. ”
—J.R.R. Tolkien

The Haircut

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.

His father said he'd make a deal with his son: 'You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible, and get your hair cut. Then we'll talk about the car.'

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.
After about six weeks his father said, 'Son, you've brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm disappointed you haven't had your hair cut.

The boy said, 'You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair ~ ~ ~ and there's even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.'

You're going to love the Dad's reply:

'Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?'
(Thanks Angela)

(Thanks Marydon.)

If you can't afford a doctor, go to an airport - you'll get a free x-ray and a breast exam, and; if you mention Al Qaeda, you'll get a free colonoscopy. (Thanks Molly and Monica.)

(This is cute - thanks Marydon.)

(Thanks Molly and Jerry).

This a good one for keeping your brain sharp.

And may I say Good Luck - hehe).

Hope this touches you the way it touched me!


A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.

She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son."

He answered, "That's okay."

"I know it's silly, but if you'd call out 'Good bye, Mom' as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy."

She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mom."

The little old lady waved and smiled back at him..

Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into some one's day, he went to pay for his groceries.

"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk.

"How come so much? I only bought 5 items."

The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said You'd be paying for her things, too."
Bet you thought this was going to be a tear jerker.

Don't trust Little Old Ladies!!!


Love chatty

"Blessed are the cracked, for they let in the light"

This coming week is National Mental Health Care week.
You can do your part by remembering to contact at least one unstable person to show you care.
Well .. .. . my job is done. Your turn!
Please send an encouraging message to a disturbed friend.. just as I've done.
I don't care if you lick windows or take the special bus.... you hang in there sunshine, you're special...
Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back.
Today's Message of the Day is:
Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to's about learning how to dance in the rain."
(This was so cute I had to use it - thanks Linda and Angela.)

So thanks to all my friends for making Fun Friday funny . . . .

My Grandpa said he wouldn't take any long hair grandson fishing...that didn't last. My mom and dad said I'd only have to keep it clean and washed. I did. 50, I can't stand to have a hair over my ear. Funny what time does :) As always - a funny post.

The Boston Lady said...

Sandie, what a great collection of fun. I loved the "bottle choir" - somebody's been having lots of fun in that group!

I was actually choking up about the older lady and the young man when I got to the punchline - you got me!

Kim said...

Those were great! Perfect way to start a Saturday.

Sharon Kirby said...

This was so much fun, I've just got to leave a few comments.

The dad/driver's license story - very cute!

I'm flying to Chicago next week - maybe I can cancel my mammogram appointment currently scheduled for when I return. Colonoscopy?? Might have to skip that one. Sounds like a pain in the...

Totally hooked me on the Mom/market story - you bad girl, you.

Played the "find the numbers" reaction thing - I am SOOOO slow!

As far as contacting one unstable person I know - all I've got to say is - I'm HERE, aren't I?!?!?
