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

Good Morning and Happy Fun Friday to you! My new button is courtesy of Diane at The Blue Ridge Gal. Thank you very much! I love it - looks just like Chatty!


A little silver-haired lady calls her neighbor and says, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started."

Her neighbor asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"

The little silver haired lady says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster."

Her neighbor decides to go over and help with the puzzle.

She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.

He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says,

"First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster."

He takes her hand and says, "Secondly, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of tea, and then," he said with a deep sigh ............

"Let's put all the Corn Flakes back in the box."
(Thanks Linda M. and Jerry!)

A man was dining in a fancy restaurant and there was a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He had been checking her out since he sat down, but lacked the nerve to speak to her.

Suddenly she sneezed, and her glass eye came flying out of its socket toward the man. He reflexively reached out, grabbed it out of the air, and handed it back.

'Oh my, I am so sorry,' the woman said as she popped her eye back in place...

'Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you,' she said.

They enjoyed a wonderful dinner together, and afterward went to the theatre and later had drinks. They talked, they laughed, she shared her deepest dreams and he shared his. She listened.

After paying for everything, she asked him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast. They had a wonderful, wonderful time.

The next morning, she cooked a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy was amazed. Everything had been SO incredible!

'You know,' he said, 'you are the perfect woman. Do you treat every guy you meet this way?'

'No,' she replied . . .

'You just happened to catch my eye.'
(Thanks Jerry).

Can you see 10 faces in the tree? (Thanks Jerry.)

I'm rich!

Silver in the Hair

Gold in the Teeth

Crystals in the Kidneys

Sugar in the Blood

Lead in the Butt

Iron in the Arteries

And an inexhaustible supply of Natural Gas..

I never thought I'd accumulate such wealth
(I'm rich - are you?

Thanks Monica for these funnies!

Amazing photos show in detail. (Thanks Linda and Angela.)

That the pilot was flying at too low a level and had no control over his aircraft.
He narrowly misses a crowd gathered for the air show and slams into four buildings.

One can only imagine the horror of the occupants inside those buildings.

Love, Chatty

A thought for the day:

Failure is wasted if you return only to the place you fell.
If your plans fails, think bigger, aim higher.

You're not copying me, are you?! I have a Blog Button as well. Yours is now proudly displayed on my Blog. It's really funny and just you!! Those were real funnies to end the week on today. I had read that one about the cornflakes only this week, and the glass eye one was brilliant!!! Have a super weekend.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Congrats on the new button! She did a great job.
I do see the faces in the tree, but I never would've noticed if you hadn't told me to look!

Marydon said...

You brighten every day Sandie. Love the chuckles ... nearly sent 2 of them to you, but someone else got them to you, which is good.

Have a beautiful day ~


Rae said...

That was fun. I enjoyed them all. I could only find 8 faces though.

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

Melanie said...

Those are so funny, Sandie. You always brighten my day. :)
I really liked the literacy billboard and the corn flakes joke.
Hope you have a great weekend.♥

Ginny said...

Love the eye joke!!! And I could find lots of faces in the tree, but not 10 yet! The hot air balloon this is a SCREAM!!!! Thanks for this moment of laughter before the busy weekend starts!

Sandra said...

i found only 9 faces in the tree, first only 7 then the rest, so i am sure it is there somewhere. like the cornflakes puzzle

Patti said...

Great jokes, Kiddo! Yes, I found all ten faces...thought one would be yours!...:)JP

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Victor S E Moubarak said...

Isn't it maddening when you finish a jigsaw puzzle and find a piece missing! I just finished a 1000 piece puzzle and guess what?

I have one piece extra in the box.

So if anyone out there has lost a piece from a puzzle; this might be it.

Great blog.

God bless.

sarah said...

you crack me up...the kids and picked out the ten faces in the trees. I have to admit they got it right faces I kept asking. And the glass eye...ouch.

Sharon Kirby said...

Always love your Fun Fridays - even if I visit on Monday!

Yes, I'm rich...

I found the 10 (creepy) faces...

The glass eye? It made me think of this classic pick-up line: "If I told you that you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?"
