Fun Friday and a Birthday

Well yesterday was - I have the same birthday Elizabeth Taylor had!
Elizabeth Taylor and Chatty - I look a lot like her - when she was a young girl!  

My son's friend took this picture!  A peaceful view!!! Isn't that pretty?

The winners of the Valentine Contest are:

JP at A Quiet Place

Sally - Retired English Teacher

Georgie at Tweedles

They were picked by my daughter.  Send me your addresses so I can mail them to you.
REMEMBER these are LITTLE BITTY fun prizes only!!

For those who are not so geeky, let me explain that this singer had to record each of the tracks one at a time, and had to get the timing just perfect in order for it to work. LOTS of technology went into this. And the song ain't bad, either. (that's an understatement!)
So, turn up your volume, maximize your screen, click on the link below, then sit back and enjoy!
Thank you Cheri this is T Terrific!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



 'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
As she fumbled for her wallet
I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked. 'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'

 I know I'm not going to understand women.
I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax,
pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root,
and still be afraid of a spider. 

 A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position..

As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?' 'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws.' 

 A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day. 30,000 to a man's 15,000.
The wife replied, 'The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, 'What?'


Okay if I have not made you laugh today I don't know what else to do!

Betty said...

Oh shoot! I have a post it note stuck on my computer monitor with your birth date and I still missed it. Happy Birthday...a day late!!!

Barb said...

Chatty - You've outdone yourself and gave me belly-laughs here in CO. Have a great weekend! Happy belated birthday - do we start getting younger after a certain age?

LL Cool Joe said...

It's always nice to come here on a Friday for a laugh, and I had plenty today, thanks!! I missed coming here!

LL Cool Joe said...

Oh and Happy Birthday too!!!

Debbie said...

You most definitely made me LAUGH today!! I kept changing my mind as to a favorite. I loved the one about the remote the best... I THINK.

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! I'm afraid that I look like Elizabeth Taylor as an old woman, and that's not such a pretty thing. Gravity just wasn't kind to her. Either that, or she's a horrible warning against a marriage addiction.

Joyce Olson said...

Happy Birthday dearest Sandie-you
know I think you are an awesome and wonderful lady. You deserve the very best in life each and every single day!
Thank you for the fun Friday!!

Inger said...

It's good when Friday comes around and one can read your post and giggle a little. For some reason, the phones cracked me up!

Inger said...

And, of course, a very Happy Birthday to you, Sandie.

WordsPoeticallyWorth said...

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie, my sweet dear friend,
I am sorry for visiting you late.
But, it's better late than never.
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday, dear Sandie!
Happy Birthday to you!!!
Have a blessed time with those
you love, and for many more years
ahead in your way, sweetheart!
I hope you had a blast, and enjoy having a delicious piece of cake
with your dear family and
beloved ones...
I like the funny cartoon that
a husband tells his wife to
move back into her parents' home.
But, it looks like they are
all in Heaven, for this couple looks like a hundred years old...
Nice joke, I like it!
Have a great weekend, Sandie!

Catherine said...

Blessings dearest. Catherine xo

Happy Birthday (a little late). Aren't you glad you weren't born on the 29th! Look at those people taking a picture while the camel is eating their child. We are all turning into idiots. lol

Happy Belated Birthday to You!

I can't believe I am late to the party... Life was nuts this past week, and I didn't blog because I was up to my eyeballs in alligators.

Love you,

Rob-bear said...

It is cold, and Bear is slow in the cold.

How slow?

He missed your birthday.

Belated Happy Birthday, Sandie! Hope you had a great time!

Blessings and Bear hugs, too!

Saleslady371 said...

very funny. Great party laughs!

Dee said...

I hope you had a grand birthday...spoiled and everything. The cartoon of the old people saying they may have to move back in with their parents....is sadly pretty close to the truth....and with people living to be 100 it could happen...EEK!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Happy Belated Birthday Sandie! So many good laughs today! The best way to spend the day is with a smile :)

Barb Pinion said...

Hi hon. The movie "Somewhere In Time" is the story of a young writer who sacrifices his life in the present to find happiness in the past. Christopher Reeves plays the man who is approached by an elderly woman who gives him an antique gold watch and who pleads with him to return in time with her. years later he is overwhelmed by a photograph of a beautiful young woman (played by Jane Seymour). Another photo years later reveals to him that she is the same woman who gave him the watch. He becomes obsessed with returning to 1912 and the young woman who is waiting for him.
A penny is what winds up getting him to her.
If you haven't seen this move, do rent it. You won't be sorry.
I haven't forgotten you hon. Having problems with email going out and coming in, having problems getting it fixed so you won't be able to email me, or me you till I get it taken care of. I'm working on it.
BIG HUGS for taking time to leave a comment in My Johnny blog. I miss him so very much.
THIS post of yours is really great. Loved it ..but then all of them are always so good. I'm so glad you had such a great birthday.
Love you much.

SweetMarie said...

Willow said...

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

My dear, you have become as necessary in my life as my morning coffee! With vanilla creamer!!
Loved them all but the remote in the purse nearly brought PH in to see what was going on.
BIG hugs,
Mona :):) See my smiles?

Nancy's Notes said...

Sharon said...


I'm late to a very important date!

Happiest (belated) Birthday, dear friend. May this be your best year ever!

And, yes, you made me laugh - right out loud - and I will spend the rest of the day smiling that I have such a wonderful friend...who's still older than me! Tee hee!
