Fun Friday with a little help from my friends.

A chicken farmer went to a local bar.... Sat next to a woman and ordered a glass of champagne.
The woman perks up and says, 'How about that? I just ordered a glass of champagne, too!'
'What a coincidence' the farmer says.
'This is a special day for me..... I am celebrating'
'This is a special day for me too, I am also celebrating!' says the woman.
'What a coincidence!' says the farmer! As they clinked glasses the man asked, 'What are you celebrating?'
'My husband and I have been trying to have a child and today my gynecologist told me that I am pregnant!'
'What a coincidence,' says the man.. 'I'm a chicken farmer and for years all of my hens were infertile, but today they are all laying fertilized eggs.'
'That's great!' says the woman. 'How did your chickens become fertile?'
'I used a different rooster,' he replied.
The woman smiled and said, 'What a coincidence.'
Thank you Linda B.

Laughter . . .
"Laughter! I live by the motto "Don't take it serious, life's too mysterious!" Stress is a beauty robber. We all have so much stress and it wears on us. Beauty surely begins front the inside out. I have faith that things will work out, and laughter helps me to put things in perspective. When you laugh, you lighten the load-and it shows."    Sue Arendt.


I want to thank all of you for those wonderful birthday wishes yesterday. And yes, I will answer all of you - but I will be a little late. Thinking of taking a nap today!
I am such a lucky and blessed person!

Snowmen and chickens today. Gotta love it.

Debbie said...

I just love Fun Friday, and I'm thrilled to have a bit more time to enjoy it this week.

My all time favorite for some reason was the "coal digger" one. I loved the boob job ones too.

And #12 on that first list describes me these days. I think the man who invented elastic for waists deserves a Nobel prize!

Sue said...

love the one about 9:00a.m. and 9:00p.m......we always get calls at 9:00 in the morning and the Boss gets highly insulted that people are calling him that early and waking him...I had to explain to him about the 9 to 9 calls before and no calls after...everything in between is fair game....

Susan said...

Hahahahaha Those were great, Sandie. Oh, the snowman jokes were hysterical...especially the one about the snow job and the other one with the rebellious "multi-carroted" teenager. ha hahahahaha Good ones!

Well, how does it feel to be in a new age category? Now you are a seasoned delight! Susan
