Farewell Friday

I thought I'd let my readers know, I'll be taking an extended hiatus from blogging.  The past 2 years have been a struggle to continue while my husband was going through several health issues.  Now I need to tend to some health issues of my own and figure out what I want to do about this blog going forward.

I want to thank all the wonderful followers who've been there to support me, and also the bloggers I've followed who entertained and inspired me along the way.  

I may return; I'm not sure.   Until then, God bless you all, and thank you so much for making the past four years so enjoyable.   

I'm leaving...not on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again.  Hugs to everyone!

Saturday Silliness

Who says men don't remember things?

A couple were Christmas shopping. The shopping center was packed , and as the wife walked through one of the malls she was surprised when she looked around to find that her husband was nowhere to be seen.

She was quite upset because they had a lot to do and hence, she became so worried that she called him on her mobile phone to ask him where he was.

In a quiet voice he said, "Do you remember the jewelers we went into about five years ago where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we couldn't afford, and I told you that I would get it for you one day?"

The wife choked up and started to cry and said, "Yes, I do remember that shop."

He replied, "Well, I'm in the pub next door." 

The strange Christmas scene

In a small southern town there was a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered me.
SnowmanThe three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets.

Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left. At a "Quik Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, "You stupid Yankees never do read the Bible!" I assured her that I did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible.

She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said "See, it says right here, 'The three wise man came from afar.'"

Once upon a time long ago in a land of charm:

There lived a king.
The king had a  beautiful daughter, The PRINCESS..  
But  there was a problem. Everything the princess  touched would melt. No matter  what; Metal,  Wood,  
Stone,  anything  she touched would melt. 
Because  of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would  dare marry her. 
The  king despaired. What could he do to help his  daughter? 
He  consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard  told the king, 'If your daughter touches one  thing that does not melt in her  hands,  she will  be cured.'
The  king was overjoyed and came up with a plan. 
The  next day, he held a competition. Any man that  could bring his daughter an object  that would not melt would marry her and inherit  the king's wealth...
The  first brought a sword of the finest steel.  But  alas, when the princess touched it, it melted.  The prince went away sadly ..  

The second  prince brought diamonds.  He thought  diamonds are the hardest substance in the world  and would not melt. But alas, once the princess  touched them, they melted.   He too  was sent away disappointed. 
The  third prince approached. He told the princess,  'Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is  in there.'
The princess did as she was  told, though she turned red .

She  felt something hard. She held it in her hand.  And it did  not melt!!!
The  king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was  overjoyed. 
And  the third prince married the princess and they  both lived happily ever after. 
Question:  What was in the prince's pants? 

M&M's  of course.
m and  m.jpg
They  melt in your mouth, not in your hand. 

What  were you thinking??

A Christmas Tip

  Who's jolly and cute,

Wearing a beard and
a red flannel suit,

And if he is chuckling
and laughing away,

 While flying around
in a miniature sleigh,
With eight tiny reindeer
to pull him along, 

Then let's face it...
Your eggnog's too strong!

Merry Christmas and
a Happy 2O14

WTF Wednesday

How fast the weeks fly by!  It's What the F*ck Wednesday again, in the blink of an eye!  That's the day when I share with you those news items that cause me to scratch my head and ask myself, "What the f*ck???

Behold the Cthuken.

Looking for an alternative to the spiral cut ham or roasted turkey for your Christmas Dinner? Rusty Yulberg, a database administrator from Lubbock, Texas put together this tasty treat. You remember turducken, which was a chicken cooked inside of a duck cooked inside of a turkey? Well, this new creation is a chicken stuffed with octopus tentacles, topped with crab legs and bacon.

It sure looks "fowl" to me!

Identifying Birds by their Droppings

If you've ever had a splat on your windshield cause you to ask, "Who did that" This is the book for you. This gives a whole new meaning to bird watching! From that poop on your windshield, this book helps you identify the species responsible, their eating habits, and their habitats. No can order this book from Amazon by clicking here!

I don't even want to think about the research that went into this text, nor the mind that conceived the idea!

Happy Holidays gets Grinch-like Response

In Phoenix, Arizona, a Salvation Army Bell Ringer received a punch when she said Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas.  "Do you believe in God?" the attacker asked, "Then you're supposed to say Merry Christms!"  The woman punch-uated her comment with punch to the Bell Ringer.

Way to put Christ back in Christmas; I'm sure He would approve.

Personally, I don't understand what all the fuss is about.  Happy Holidays is a greeting that is all inclusive--whether the recipient is Christian, Jewish, or of any other faith.  There are people celebrating Kwanza, Chanukah, The Chinese New Year, and various other events at this time of year.  Why can't we say "Happy Holidays" and wish people of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds happiness and peace?*********************

That's enough head-scratching for this week!
