Fun Friday with a little (lot) of help from my friends.

I'm late - I'm late - to the tea party - got so involved in reading posts today.

I should have named my blog Crazy Chatty Cathy - because I do love and have a passion for silly and eclectic things. Brings me so much joy and happiness I guess. Others have their wonderful thrifts - some have great tablescapes - sewing - crafting - photography - some give us wonderful Bible verses and small mini sermons - animals - travels - etc. I have such a well rounded group of gals and most of us share a love for God. So I get a wide variety of items to put inside my head each day.

I was talking to Ann the other day and I said thank you - she sends me lots of things, And so many people have asked me - where do you get your blog information - and I am thinking - I get it from my friends. So really my blog is made of Chatty and her friends. Kind of crazy right - just like I like it. So thank you all. Thanks for sending me things. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for loving my little nutty world. I guess what I am saying here is - this blog is a collection - a mosaic of friends or a patchwork of friends. Couldn't do it without you.

And yes - some of my posts originate from myself - believe it or not. lol However I always give credit when credit is due.

I say this every morning to myself - ah. One day . . .

I received this from Ann, Jerry, and Marydon. And I thank you all - because each time I get a forward - I think of it as a gift. I NEVER get too many and I consider EACH one a gift. If you don't know these blogs please visit them - great people are behind them. (So still send me the forwards please!)

Thank you Betty! She helped me see what I was doing wrong. Nah....

In the town I live in is a couple that were about to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Let me describe them
He was a small, thin man and she was an extremely heavy woman.
Their kids wanted to send them to Las Vegas for their anniversary but they had never flown. With much conversation the couple decided to go ahead and fly.
As they were walking onto the plane the old man got very nervous and was white knuckled. To say the least he was thinking he messed up buy being on the plane.
The man was seated at the window and his wife on the aisle.
As the plane neared the Grand Canyon the pilot came on the intercom and announced that if they would look out the right window they could see the canyon.
The woman stood up and leaned over her husband to get a good look at the same time as the pilot banked the wing to the right to give them a better view.
The old man said in a loud voice WOMAN SIT BACK DOWN BEFORE YOU TURN THIS PLANE OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My question is - do you think the husband is still alive?
Thanks Jerry.

Warning - from my friend Joe.

When you drink Vodka over ice, it can give you kidney failure,

When you drink Rum over ice, it can give you liver failure,

When you drink whiskey over ice, it can give you heart problems,

When you drink Gin over ice, it can give you brain problems.

Apparently, ice is really bad for you.

(Beware) - chatty

Okay there are over 7 billion people in the world - do you want to know what your number is?

Thanks Jerry.

I am not able to embed this, by request of the owner - but it was sent to me by Kim and it is the funniest thing I have ever seen. I don't watch a lot of television, but apparently this show is on every day. And it just takes three minutes and I promise you - you will laugh so hard and if you don't something is wrong with your laugh meter.


Know that you are your greatest enemy, but also your greatest friend.

I liked that one to leave you with today. Thought it was meaningful.

I could use some of those WW diet pills ;-)

Clint said...

Friends are so necessary---and we are so fortunate to be a part of the blog world and have the chance to share with each other.

TexWisGirl said...

i liked the m&ms... :)

Sally said...

Love them all. Isn't it wonderful to have friends; even those we may never meet face to face.

Have a wonderful day!

And, no I don't think the husband is dead but surely was suffocated. :)

Mevely317 said...

Love these 'toons, especially the scale!
Your new header is awesome!!!

Have yourself a wonderful day, Sandie!

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

We all need a little help from our friends and I greatly appreciate you sharing yours with us. I will stay away from ice from now on, that's for sure!

I'm a fan of Big Bang. They always make me laugh.

Thanks for the chuckles.

SweetMarie said...

Being a part of blogland has been brought more happiness to my life. And I appreciate everyone on here! Sandie you know I think your wonderful!!!
Love the m&m joke...too funny!
Have a happy weekend!

Mommie Dearest Strikes Again said...

Aww, I love how you share these things and especially how you give credit where credit is due! Not enough people do that, in my opinion. The Weight Watchers diet pills was my favorite...and I think I've been taking them too!

Jeanie said...

You have some good friends, Sandie. How great that they share so much with you.I have a fondness for those Weight Watchers diet pills......hmmm?

My Journey With Candida said...

Hahahaha.... Great post!!!

I was just discussing with another blogger how much I like to go visit other blogs because you learn so much. I love that each blog is different and I can always find time to go read my friends blogs. I always try to make sure I leave a comment too... I figure if they took the time to write it, I am going to take the time to let them know I read it.

Jill said...

The WW pills just had me rolling!

Cheri said...

This is where I am on the 7 billion:

When you were born, you were the:
person alive on Earth
person to have lived since history began.

I loved the diet pills...those are my kind.

Nezzy said...

I'm lovin' those little weight watchers diet pills!!! Heeehehe!

I never fail to leave here not rollin' outta my chair. :o)

Thanks!!! Laughter truly is good medicine.

God bless and have a wonderful day!!! :o)

Janie said...

For all the little things you post, your blog is so COLORFUL. Wow that header had me going. I thought you took the photo. Nice touch. Thanks for your comment on my husbands cat, especially because you are not a cat person.

Whosyergurl said...

I've been eating a lot of those ww pills lately...they are yummy!
xo, Cheryl

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I'm laughing so hard now! The diet pills did it! M&Ms aren't a diet pill? LOL!!
When we flew to Las Vegas the pilot banked the plane so we could see the Grand Canyon better. I don't recall anyone getting yelled at, tho! LOL Too funny!
Thanks, Sandie, for the laughs today.
Have a great weekend!

Sandra said...

i like the patchwork of friends comment, that is what we all have with our online friends. connected by wireless. your blog looks nice with the starry starry leaves. i have been my greatest enemy my whole life and never my friend. i will have to think about that quote a while. might learn something.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I watch The Big Bang Theory every Thursday, it's a great show. I believe it is on in reruns daily. Love the jokes, especially the M&M's! Have a wonderful weekend.

Belle said...

I read the "ice" joke to my daughter. She loved it - so funny. The airplane one was good too. Thanks for the laughs today.

My fav today is the Weight Watchers M&M one.... ha ha ha


Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Well now, that M&M one 'splains a lot! Happy weekend:@)

Jamie Brook Thompson said...

Thanks for your fun Friday! My son just got his tonsils out today... Horrible... But when I saw your cute little Pug, I smiled! Thanks. It's great to follow a blog that makes me smile.
As for the book Fairytale Farms, yes, it is mine. I'm not one to push it. Only on my own blog. It's a funny thing. I thought I would be so happy when it was published, but I'm more insecure than ever. That's why I love your blog. I feel accepted for being crazy me because you seem to be just a flat out fun and accepting person!

That corgi :) said...

When I saw that cartoon that someone sent me, my first thought was "Sandie" and not because it had anything to do with your weight, LOL, but because I thought it would go well for Fun Fridays :); glad you could use it!

LOL with the joke with the man/woman on the plane!!

I hope you have a good weekend!!


Janie Fox said...

Too funny. I love the Big Bang Theory. I want Leonard and Penny to reconcile. It never fails to be funny.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

These are hysterical! I love the one of the hubby on the plane! Going to watch the Big Bang Theory clip now! Enjoy your weekend!

Michaele said...

I like the M&M joke too, but the videos were cool. Thanks for being you Chatty.

Ann said...

I've found so many delightful people through the blogging world including you. I hope you realize how much you make people smile every day :)

Donna B said...

Hi Sandie! I love your new look to your blog! I never knew you wrote a book! This is the most difficult part of taking a blogging break....missing so much and it takes so long to get caught up!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie....So glad I finally got to my computer to read your post before it was Saturday!

Loved your header. There were a lot of funny things on your post today. Thanks. Susan

Carol............. said...

And all along I thought those wonderful pills stood for Wonder Woman! LOL

forgetmenot said...

Thanks for the "laughs". I'm thinking you went out and spray painted each tree in your header--those are spectacular. A "round of applause" for Fall!! Have a great weekend. Mickie ;)

Crystal Mary said...

I was laughing at the man on the plane thinking his wife was tipping the plane over...Ray asked what I was laughing at. I told him I wasn't telling him or he'd probably use the same words on me sometime...LOL,
Thanks for making me have a good laugh. xxxx

Desiree said...

What a warm hearted post, Sandie. Just loved the metaphor of your blog being a mosaic made up of friends. You all gave us some great laughs again, thank you! Hugs xoxo

FishHawk said...

Thanks again! By the way, I often feel bad about passing on emails about old and fat people to you. (Okay, not really.)

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOL!! You mean those AREN'T weight watcher pills???? LOL!

Oh, yeah, Sandie... that last quote is a doozie. Love your posts and your collection of friends who love you dearly! Have a great weekend! blessings ~ tanna

Melanie said...

Better is Possible said...

Chatty Cathy was one of my favorite dolls growing up. Her and Tiny Tears. Every time I see your name I think of my doll and smile. Just thought you'd like to know.

Wanda's Wings said...

Love the squirrels and the M&M's.

Sharon said...

It pleases me to no end to be part of your crazy quilt. And I do indeed love your little nutty world.

It's so good to laugh - and there are few places that guarantee me that pleasure. Chatty's blog - well, laughter is a given there!

Seriously??? It's M & M's?? Ugh...
No ice cubes?? Grr...

Still smiling though!!
