Whew and Wow and Whew again...haven't had this much fun since I don't know when (this poem was just BURSTING to come out).
Before I go on with anything, I would like to tell all you sweethearts who commented (or if you still want to) on Tamara's blog to take a quick peek over there as she finally found us out! Here is her link to click on. Thank you, thank you and thank you. Holy smoke...I just re-noticed her Bible verse from the day before...is THAT a God moment or what????
Before I get into my favorites for Friendly Friday Favorites...seriously, try saying that fast three times...found out I can't, just a few announcements (see, being a lector (reader) at church has its' drawbacks as I still sound like a lector):
1. Have to hurry up as I haven't even packed yet and will be on my way to see the three grandbabies southeast of me for the week-end, but see what I'm doing (is there a blogger's anonymous...does anyone know, or for that matter, do any of us care?)
2. May have trouble even getting online to check out everyone's website and leave comments as this daughter gets the willies over blogging , so everything has to be hush hush, but I will give it a try (have to put on my cloak and dagger outfit).
3. A few more helpful hints about my former occupation:
-I was never supposed to have to do this and was not 'trained' for it, except for what little my beloved late hubby Mario could tell me, but complications with his Parkinson's meant I had to take over.
-He thought this would be a great thing to get into because people always need this.
-It was a business I was running.
-I absolutely loved working with the people and with those networkers I met with on a regular basis.
Ready for some more guessing now?
Here come the favorites now. I talked about Michael and my visit to Fernbank, well it is also one of my favorites as it always has a new exhibit on display and the Dinosaurs Alive did not disappoint. We even saw a dinosaur IMAX movie that was a treat. Here's Michael looking at the leg and wondering how juicy a meal it would have made (scarily enough, he could have probably eaten the whole thing, with ketschup of course, maybe fries too)...
Here are the beautiful spiral staircases up to the next two floors...
This is the newly decorated and redesigned front of the museum... only months ago, these dinosaurs, fountains and flowers (oops...these are to the far left and right) were not here...if you look carefully, you can see a redheaded dinosaur there...
This little plaque is a favorite for many reasons...it's one of the few things I have that were given to me by a wonderful priest/friend who died more than ten years ago and with whom I shared the same birthday. I love it also because it is a beautiful reminder of who and what I should be...
Finally, here is a full shot of that rosary from last Friday that I gave my mother and now have back as she has gone to Heaven and I miss her so much...she loved aurora borealis crystals so I especially got this for her..
Here's another view of this rosary and this time it is on the precious popcorn stitch afghan that my mom crocheted, made from wool she got when we went on a brief trip to Ireland...
And now for some adorably corny yet funny jokes:
One day, a mailman was greeted by a boy and his dog. The mailman said to the boy, "Does your dog bite?""No," replied the boy. Just then, the dog bit the mailman."Hey, "he yelled. "I thought your dog doesn't bite!""He doesn't," replied the boy, "but that's not my dog."
There was a duck that went to a local store to buy chapstick, the clerk asked if he would pay cash and the duck said, no, just put it on my bill.
An invisible man marries an invisible woman. The kids were nothing to look at either.
What do you get when you play a COUNTRY SONG backwards?You get your house back, tractor back, wife back, and dog back!
Did you hear about the midget fortune-teller who escaped from prison?Now there is a small medium at large!!
Two clowns eating soup one looks over to the other and says does this taste funny to you?
This joke comes from Rebecca @ Life and Godliness, who gave it freely without asking for recognition, but I guess I'll 'shame' her anyway! Very cute, thanks, Rebecca!:
A blond woman was pulled over for speeding by a blond female police officer.
The blond cop asked to see her driver's license. "What's it look like?' the driver finally asked.
The officer said, "It's square and it has your picture on it.
"The driver found a square mirror in her purse, looked at it and handed it to the policewoman. "Here it is."
The officer looked at and said, "OK you can go. I didn't know you were a cop!"
~~~~Sometimes, dear Lord the blessings with which You shower me just overwhelm me, so for these wonderful and fun-filled comment days with wonderful people, I so heartily thank You.
