Fun Friday with a little help from my friends.



Thank  You Sandra at Madsnapper


To help save the economy, the Government will announce
next month that the Immigration Department will start deporting
seniors (instead of illegals) in order to lower Social Security
and Medicare costs.
Older people are easier to catch and will not remember
how to get back home.
I started to cry when I thought of you.
Then it dawned on me ... oh, shoot ...
I'll see you on the bus!


It amazes me how the brain can react to stuff like  this.
I've  seen this with the letters out of order, but  this is the first time I've seen it with  numbers .      Good  example of a Brain Study: If you can read this  OUT LOUD you have a strong  mind.

This is the best kind of reminder I've ever had about my age.   You'll have to try it because it works.

Don't tell me your age; you'd probably lie anyway -
but the Hershey Man will know!


This is pretty neat.

It takes less than a minute .
Work this out as you read .
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!
This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)
 2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
3. Add 5
4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1762 ..
If you haven't, add 1761.

6... Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number

The first digit of this was your original number

(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)


Beat the cat

Ok, all you smart people, see if you can do this.............
When you get some time, SEE IF YOU CAN SOLVE THIS PUZZLE.
The object is to:  ENCLOSE THE CAT with DARK circles all around it -BEFORE- it sneaks OUT of the Puzzle.
It's supposed to be a stress REDUCER but it can be a stress "INDUCER" !!!!
It's fun and addicting!   Bet you can't get it!
PS:  One of the 'secrets' is to not start too close to the cat...start further away...
(Ooooops, I almost let the 'cat out of the bag' !!!)
Have FUN!!!:-)
   Click on CAT(the box)  to Start!  If it doesn't work let me know. Or click on this.


You know some nights I have fallen asleep sitting up working on the computer - have you ever done that?  I need an airbag.

I feel like this when mine is down.


Not really, but you do need to add fun in your life in addition to the other things!!!

I'm first! I have never been first!
This week was very cool. I found the liar, read the number thingie out loud, and discovered that I'm weak in math.

That's because my answer was wrong with the chocolate math thing until I found a math error of the stupid sort.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I kept reading all of these to my hubby over breakfast..I finally said go to Chatty Crone! I think he has your blog in his favs now, too! Thanks for a fun start to the day! I got the cat trapped the second time! lol

Kim said...

Someone sent me that cat thing a few weeks ago and it almost drove me crazy (short trip, I know) Lol I had to delete it before I lost my mind

Jill said...

Happy Friday to you too, Sandie! Lot's of fun again this morning. Thank you!

Sandra said...

love the deportation, i would be on the bus for sure.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

Getting older certainly isn't any joke but there seems to be a lot of joking going on about it. I guess life is more fun when you can laugh about what ails you. I try to laugh alot and most of the time I'm laughing at my self. We really do have to make the time to have fun sometimes. Laughter is the best medicine for sure! Thanks for all the smiles today. Have a fantastic Friday!!!

Joyce Ann said...

Thanks for the giggle!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Thanks for the Friday chuckles. Have a good day! See ya on the bus! Susan

Godsgalnj said...

Haha! What a fun post :) I came across a few of them this week while I was looking for something. My favorite was the number message - I felt smart afterwards for a few moments, lol!

Jeanie said...

Lots of fun this morning....with a little boost to get my brain started. Thanks Sandie.

Wanda's Wings said...

A bus trip is in my near future!

Lynn said...

How does that math thing work???? That's amazing. Just for giggles I went back and chose a different number and it still worked out.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

You know I love the Friday stuff!! Oh it's good to laugh for sure! Hugs, Linda

Mary said...

Wow..that was a full fun filled post. I've done the chocolate age thing before, amazing. You have a boat load of buttons. (I hope to have one soon to join in.) Thanks for the laughs.

Mary said...

Oh..that cat!!!

Sharon said...

I love your header picture!

Have a great weekend!

Anonymous said...

Found the word. Now, when you get on the bus look for me, I'll bring the coffee and muffins.

Knitty said...

Are you surprised at how many of us are saving you a seat on the bus? Lol!

I trapped the cat right away. You're right about casting a wide circle first and narrowing in...just like catching a husband. ;-)

Retired English Teacher said...

Good stuff.

Shelly said...

I'm going to have to share that chocolate math one- too good!

Jim said...

You had a lot of friends' help today, some really neat goodies here. I'll pick two.

I like the cartoon about being married to a friend who doesn't remember anything you say. Did you ever read the book, "Trading Stamps, or something like that. All the built up hurts and bad talking is saved like the old "Green Stamps" and then cashed in, i.e. reminded strongly of to the other mate, during a really bad argument. We used to sell those books on our Christian book spinner racks we had placed in the Safeway grocery stores.

The other is the bus trip. Do you know why those two men (just a handfull) were liked by the ladies to have along? The guys would help with the ladies' luggage.

TexWisGirl said...

some pretty cute things today. :)

Annmarie Pipa said...

Cher' Shots said...

Beth said...

Lots of items to make me smile today! I hope you have a really great weekend.

Miss Debbie said...

Fun stuff! Thanks for sharing it all!

Paula said...

I swear I see two ladies from our town on that bus. Guess I hadn't caught up to it yet.

Michaele said...

I never was any good with cats : ) Sneaky little bugger.
You have lightened my spirits once again and I didn't even know they were getting heavy.
Thanks Chatty!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I loved the puzzles. great for my mind. Keeps me on my toes.

Wendy said...

You do an amazing job collating all this information daily to share in order to bring some laughter into our lives- thank you so much!

That corgi :) said...

cool with the Liar; tilted my head a bit and there it was :) I read that thing with all the numbers, etc., it was cool when the words started looking like words :)

all cute Sandie!

relax this weekend, but I'm sure you can't with your busy schedule!


SweetMarie said...

Cute stuff Sandie! I did catch the kitty. :) Have a great weekend!!!

Ann said...

ok the kitty thing is going to make me crazy. I almost had him but then I messed it up :)


FUN STUFF. Loved it. Couldn't see the kitty though. Just a blank frame showing.

Arkansas Patti said...

Sorry, I am still trying to get my *&#@ language under control because of the DARN cat.
Going to give it another shot. Not sure I can thank you for that:))

Blondee said...

What a super fun brain bending post! Once I saw 'liar' I couldn't see anything else again! lol

Have a great weekend!

Dee said...

I saw liar right away and thrilled to find out I have a strong mind. I cheated on the chocolate age thingy...sorry. I agree that you need to add fun to your life..that is why I stop by your blog. :)

Renae said...

Hi! I've been crazy busy again with errands, dr appt, grocery/rx stop and can finally comment to you my friend! I read you post first thing this am while still in my cozy bed. I was about to pee my pants at the e-cards and seniors on the bus!!
I dashed just in time to reach the potty..whew!!!!

jack69 said...

Ever since you put that beautiful picture in the heade I have been meaning to say how great that makes me feel when it pops up after I click Chatty. I love it.

Also love the puzzles. Like the cat. And I like to have never seen the 'Liar'. I love those. If I was still drawing in public, I would use that one.
'I have lost my mind and I too, am pretty sure the boys took it.'

Love it great read. Thanks.

I got that one about the bus from a friend. I can't help but wonder who are those people on the bus and do they realize they're going around the Internet? I laugh every time I read it.

The Preppy Student said...

fun post! I am your newest follower! I cannot wait to read more of your posts and hope that maybe you can return the favor and follow my preppy blog. I always comment for every comment left on my page and hope to start a friendly relationship with your wonderful blog!

Crystal Mary said...

You know we laugh about seniors being deported...see you on the bus.
However, a friend I knew who migrated to Oz from Austria, had to share her house with another family..what will our governments come up with next???

Tweedles -- that's me said...

What a great post!
Happy Friday to you!

BlueShell said...

I'm proud of myself: I could read the message...the one that just "certain people" can read...that proofs that my mind can do "amazing things" - even when the message is in English...LOL It was soooo fun!
And the "age thing"...hilarious!
I just could not see the CAT...

Have a big hug and God bless you!

Pondside said...

Hi Sandie. So many funnies for us today and they really did make me smile. I love the one with all the old people on the bus leaving town!! Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

These are hysterical. I fall asleep all the time with my computer but thankfully it's a laptop and I'm in bed! The old people on the bus was very cute. Hope you're having fun at the wedding today!
