Short and Sweet

Yesterday's post was entirely too long...didn't realize that as I had been adding a little here and there, then rushing like a crazed maniac to finish the green comment part before going to church. Hope no one dozed off half way through it (checking back in the post, I almost did)!

So here are some short and sweet things, like Oliver as a kitten, in the kitchen looking up while the camera strap dangles down.

This sign pretty much says it all:

These flowers are short and sweet:

For some reason this picture popped up when I wrote short and sweet, so I guess charming or being charming is short or sweet or both:

To give you a complete break from yesterday's "yawner", even the jokes will be short and sweet (aka corny):

Know why a room full of married people looks so empty? There's not a Single person in it...

Don't spend $2 to dry-clean a shirt. Donate it to the Salvation Army instead. They'll clean it and put it on a hanger. Next morning buy it back for 75 cents.

Q: What did the fish say when he hit the wall? Answer: DAM!!

Why do Eskimos wash their clothes in Tide? Because it's too cold "out tide!"

What do you call a boom-a-rang, that doesn't come back? Answer: A Stick!!!!

Why did the stoplight turn red?

Wouldn't you if you had to change in the middle of the street??

P. S. Tomorrow I will finally share "my little surprise present from God" that I found about four days ago.

~~~Thank you, Lord for the ability to make a point without making a yawn.


  1. Oh, Marcy, I did not think your post was too long yesterday at all! In fact, when I am browsing the blog world and reading everyone's posts I am sad to come to the end of them! I'm sad to get to your jokes sometimes because I know I am nearing the end of your post!

    I know how you feel though, I look at some of my posts and I cringe that I've made people read so much! I keep having my sister Diane's words run through my head (she is always saying, "Oh, get over yourself already!" and putting us all in our place).
    But I promise I have never felt that way about any of your posts or any other blogger that I've read!

    This post was sweet, Marcy, but much too short!
    Love and Prayers,

  2. Thank you, Marcy, for thinking of me and sending me over to Just A Little Something, I LOVED it!
    That is so sweet of you and so typical Marcy!
    Thank you for being such a good friend and thank you for always brightening my day!

  3. Hi Marcy,
    Like Eileen, I did not think your blog was too long either...I love it, and the jokes always make me smile. We all need more things in our life to make us happy. It makes me happy to read what you have to say.


  4. Hi Marcy,
    BTW I loved "Short and Sweet" too!

  5. Hi Marcy, I love reading everyone's post it just gives me a glimps of who you really are without having met you! and I really don't know how to tell you about getting the words and the pics to come together on a post, other than I add a pic and make sure that I choose either left or right, when it says done, then I move the pic which appears at the top of my post script, by highlighting it Ctrl x, (cutting it) and Ctr p (paste it) where I want it in the story. Sometimes it works other times not!

  6. I didn't think your post was too long either was full of helpful information and the humor you provide is always appreciated...Enjoyment for every one!

  7. I thoroughly enjoy all your posts - long and short!

  8. Dear Marcy, I enjoy reading all of your posts, especially the one from yesterday, and today :>) Your little kitty is adorable ♥ I hope you are having a beautiful day....

  9. Not being able to recall readng an over long post of yours I had to have another look just to check. Nope. Definitely not. It was fine as always. You always make me giggle at the end with your jokes,

    love, Angie, xx

  10. I loved your corny jokes today Marcy, those are my favorites! And I too did not think your post was too long, I always enjoy reading it, long or short.

  11. Hi Marcy, I always love your posts wether they are long or short..they are always heartfelt, informative, moving and funny!! What a sweetheart you are!! Love, Jerelene

  12. Hi Marcy, I feel the ame as Jerelene, I love your post whether they are long or short. I love how you manage to find some little thing to include everyone of your blogger friends in your blog. You are special my friend....
