Fun Friday with a little help with my friends!

Did you ever read Under the Tuscan Sun?  This would fit in there nicely.
Well a girl can dream - right?
I'd love to love in Italy!!!!!!!!!!!!!



We went to the fair!

He rode a horse.

(Good for any year.)

A helpful hint!


  Thank you Betty!

How pumpkin pie is made???
I put this on my blog every year - I must have a twisted mind.

A mama mole, a papa mole, and a baby mole all live in a  little mole hole.
 One day the papa mole sticks his head out of the hole,
 sniffs the air and says, "Yum! I smell maple syrup!" 

The mama mole sticks her head out
 of the hole, sniffs the air and says "Yum! I smell  honey!"

The baby mole tries to stick his head out of the hole to sniff the
 air, but can't because the bigger moles are in the way so he says, "Geez, all I
 can smell is molasses."

Thank you Monica

Hey I have another one - Hold your tongue and say, "Molasses on the table".  What did you hear?  lol 
Okay being a little loose and wild today!  SUE ME!
Note:  I have no money so good luck!


Thanks Lee



Chatty and her entire family have been sick as dogs this week - hope you all don't ever experience this.  Headache - conjunctivitis - sore throat where it feels like glass when you swallow - face and teeth hurt - cough - can't sleep - can't stay awake - yikes - and it has lasted a week!  So wash your hands something awful is going on.

Sandie, I am so sorry you all are sick...no fun. Do you have any idea what is going around?

Anyhow I love this weeks post and your grandsons are so cute, they look like brothers (even though they aren't).

Feel better. Hugs my friend

Katie Clooney said...

Great one Sandie...Darling pic of your grands! The garden sink is so pretty. Have a great weekend.

Cathy said...

So sorry you all are sick. Hope you feel better soon. I enjoyed today's post. Made me laugh and smile.

Vee said...

Well that explains everything! Hope that You're feeling a whole lot better now. This post did make me laugh!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Oh Sandie, I hope you and your whole family feel better soon. Blake has been sick on and off for a month and is now on several meds! I love that photo of your Grandsons!!! Adorable. Miss you my sweet friend.


Anonymous said...

Sandra said...

that sounds horrible all of you sick and nothing i want to get for sure.. i love that photo of the cups and the flowers in the sink. would like to have that kitchen or that photo hanging in my kitchen... hope you all feel better soon and Disco doesn't get sick, he looks a little sickly in his photo. like he can't keep his eyes open.

jack69 said...

I always smile when I read, CS Lewis statement at your Cover:
“Joy is the serious business of heaven”

Ah yes, TWO grands and a FAIR! Great combo..


Good to see Disco’s picture.

Love from down in Florida with a beautiful day…

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

What ever you all have, I sure don't want it. That sounds miserable for sure. I saw the movie Under the Tuscan Sun, but didn't read the book. Still it's a nice place to be... I try to live in the sunshine, even when it's raining as it is here today. Hope you are all better soon. Have a fantastic Friday!

Sandee said...

First, I'm sorry everyone's been sick this week. I hope everyone gets well soon.

I just talked about my love for pumpkin, and especially pumpkin pie. I'm never going to be able to look at a piece of pumpkin pie without remember how they are made. Bwahahahahahahaha.

Your two grandsons are handsome.

I can drive a stick too.

Disco is so cute.

Have a great day and weekend honey. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

Soggibottom said...

Love all the pics Great looking guys you have there proud Nana :-) Hey Disco, Luvs x .

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I sure hope you all feel better soon. Take care of yourself and thanks for the laughs! Sweet hugs, Diane

NanaDiana said...

LOL-Sandie....yes you ARE twisted...lol One of the many reasons I like you!

I am sorry you have all been sick. Hope you are feeling all well in a day or so. Yuck!!!

I hope I don't smell any molasses on MY table. xo Diana

Sharon said...

Only you could create a funny post in the middle of being sick - but, of course, I guess it makes sense because of your *sick* sense of humor!! (Which I love!)

My very favorite thing was the story about the moles. See, you have a *twisted sister* out here in Blog Land!

Perfectly wonderful photo of the grandsons, Sandie. I can see why you're in love with them.

And Disco - gives a whole new meaning to "beady eyes!"

Love you - get well.

Paula said...

Feel better soon. At least you made us laugh with your post. Like the mole joke 'cause we have lots of those at times. Actually I think ours are Gophers.

Nonnie said...

The grandsons pic is definitely the highlight today.

The pumpkin pie is funny!

Hi Disco. Trudy. :-)

Ginny said...

I am SO sorry!!! The flu has come really early!! I am glad you are better now and it is all over. Now maybe you will be well all winter when everyone else is sick. LOVE the pic of your grandsons, they are almost grown!!

Lee said...

Yes, I have read "Under the Tuscan Sun" and I love it. I really enjoyed the movie, too.

I hope by the time you read this, that everyone is well again in your household, Sandie. It sure doesn't sound like you had a fun week!!

But it didn't diminish your good humour...thanks for the smiles and laughs. You take good care now. :)

barbara woods said...

your grandson is getting so handsome, hope you'll are feeling better

A Quiet Corner said...

That Chapstick idea is great...I am going to use it when we go on vacation! I saw the movie, Under the Tuscan Sun...a great flick and yes it would belong!!!...:)JP

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Love the Halloween funnies! Sorry to hear you've all been sick, hope you feel better soon:@)

Betsy Adams said...

Cute ones... I have a warped sense of humor but I loved the Halloween costumes (t-paper and 'turd')... CUTE..

Sorry you all have been so sick. That is NO FUN at all... Hope you get someone professionally in that house to get all of the germs out... ha


Ivy and Elephants said...

Feel better, dearest. Thank you for giving us a laugh even through your pain.
Big hugs,

Munir said...

So sorry that you guys were sick. Hope that every one is fine and up and running.
Love your grand kids already. They are adorable.
Great laughs too, as usual. Thanks.


Hope you all feel better soon, real soon. ROFLMAO over the naked video. Too funny.

Susan said...

Sandie, I tell you. I needed a good laugh and I got it with this post.

That "I Don't Look Good Naked Anymore" video was hysterically funny. I sat here at the kitchen table chortling outloud like an old Grannie. You should have heard me. SOOOO SOOOO FUNNY.

You are the best with your hilarious Friday posts.

And, my dear Sandie, I do hope you are feeling MUCH better and that all the family is feeling better, too. Love to you, my friend. Susan

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I hope you all feel better soon

Linda said...

I didn't READ Under the Tuscan Sun but I LOVED the movie!!! Lots and lots of butterflies!!! My dream come true!

Catherine said...

Dear Sandie,
I hope you are all feeling better.
These certainly put a smile on my face. I loved the song too. It was fun.
Blessings dear and hugs, Catherine xo

Ann said...

I'm so sorry you're all sick. The symptoms sound awful. Get better soon

Mevely317 said...

I'm SO in love with your lead photo, Sandie.... that's totally my style. (Were I to wiggle my nose and get a crew from HGTV over here - ha!)

I definitely recommend going to Italy at least once in everyone's life. Mine was a convoluted tale, involving an even-more convoluted, long-distance romance with a fellow who lived in Tuscany. I've forgotten much about the gent, but I'll never forget the country.

Love the pix of Andy and Will!
Feel better soon, my friend!

Retired English Teacher said...

Yes, I did read that book and I saw the movie. Loved both of them. It would be great to live there, or even to visit.

For being sick, you sure put together a great post today. Get better soon. I''m so sorry you have been sick. Rest and fluids. That is what they say helps. Take it easy.

Terri said...

Thanks for the laughs, and yes- those two grand boys are precious- I know you don't spoil them a bit, do you? :)

Sheila Y said...

The picture of the grands, precious! Sorry everyone has been ill. My youngest was in Atlanta last weekend and went to a fair on Saturday... Wonder if it was the same one? Take care, Sheila

LL Cool Joe said...

Ha ha that video made me laugh, although I'm not sure why it needed all the young women in short shorts in it, not that I'm complaining of course but it just doesn't seem too pc to me. :D

Sorry to hear you've been unwell.

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Ok by now you are all properly better since you wrote this days ago, but I am only just getting here. I would like to thank you for the video clip I have seen it before but I like it so I watched it again.

jack69 said...

REally sorry you guys aren't feeling well. Hope by now there is some improvement.. Love from Florida..

BECKY said...

Hello Sandie! I am really sorry you and your family have been so sick! I had that same thing about a month ago and it took a couple of weeks, or more, to go away...I'm sorry to say! Loved all your "funnies" as usual, except for the "how pumpkin pies are made!" I just made my first one of the fall season....and when I saw the cartoon, I immediately thought....Ewwww!! Sick!! LOL! Feel better soon!

Debbie said...

I hope by the time you read this, the whole family is feeling better.

Your little grandson has grown up so much!! He is adorable.

(And it took me a while to figure the mole family one. In my defense, it's still early in the morning. I had to read it a few times, and then I read it more slowly. That's when I started to laugh.)

Granny Annie said...

Don't know which is more twisted. Making the pumpkin pies or handing out Baby Ruth. lol

Inger said...

Twisted tales to make us smile. Thank you Chatty and Disco too.

Betty said...

Oh dear...I didn't know you were all sick. Hope by now things are a lot better.

My goodness...your youngest grandson is a little boy now and no longer a baby or toddler. What a cute picture. I hope they got out of there before you all got sick.

I love pumpkin and now you've ruined it for me. :)

Betty said...

UH-OH. I wondered why your blog showed up in my reading list with another Friday post. I've done that too. Published when I really wanted to save. I'll look for it again on Friday. :)

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Hi Dear Sandie,
Well, I surely hope the family is much better on this Monday!
Your grandsons are handsome and my first thought was wow, they look alike!
I love the Halloween laughs, and I too ride a broom;)
Love Ya!

Donna said...

Awww! Disco is my favorite...and SO sorry y'all have been sick!!

Lynn said...

Love the Tuscan Sun film - yes, it would fit right in.

Hope you feel better now!

Stella said...

Just stopped by to say Hi! Sorry all of you feel so yucky! Disco has such a sweet face nothing could be his fault. Hope you are well soon.

Dar said...

I sure hope you're feeling better.
Great entries and LMAO at the oh-so- true song. That guy reminds me of my uncle.
love, Love, LOVE the grandson pic. Sweeeeeet !!!
I need to put a pumpkin pie by my door.
Feel more better, sweetie.

Marianne (Mare) Baker Ball said...

hate reading you are sick! Although you might be better by now, I'm late on checking in w/ my favorite blogs. Your grandchildren are sweet as pie!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I haven't read the book but I own the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. Love that sink!!! Love the Baby Ruth, may have to borrow that one. Sweet picture of your grandson's.

Susannah said...

The picture of your grandson's is so wonderful!!!! I know you love it! Today's post is so funny. I love each and every one. Jim had to come and see what was the matter with me.... then we both got to laughing. You are so great. Thank you, Miss Chatty!

Cranberry Morning said...

Okay, you had me ROFL with the costume one and the pumpkin pie. Thanks for the fun laughs. Hope you are well.

mail4rosey said...

Disco looks cute, not fierce. Just saying. :)

We had something too this week, took us down a little, but not out. ;) Silly up and down temps. get us every year.

The pic of your two grands is def. a keeper!!

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie, sweet dear friend,
I am glad you got a lovely family gathering in your home.
I love the pictures of your two grandsons. The grandbaby looks lovely riding in the horse's carrousel.
I pray you get well soon, sweetheart.
I'll try to catch up with my writings. Please, forgive me!
I don't neglect my friends, I'm going through some nasty ordeals lately.
I try not to say negative things, especially when I feel down...
So, I only post when I feel positive.
I send all my loving on your way.
May God bless you, Sandie, family, beloved ones!
Big Hugs from Starry.
