So much Fun and lots to tell

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 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'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.


  1. That's wonderful news that Tamara is walking a little.
    Hope you have a wonderful visit this weekend.
    I loved seeing the rosary that was your Mother's and that bedspread is really a keepsake.
    Thanks too for sharing Fernbank with us. What an interesting place to spend time.

  2. Have a safe drive to see your grandchildren...enjoy the weekend...relaxing and getting some good grandchildren 'shugar'.
    The rosary is very pretty....and I love the crocheted afghan. Thank you for sharing your jokes. I needed a smile today.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Smiles to you from Jackie

  3. "My name is Angie and I'm a blogger". There, now you say it!

    Were you a gentlemen's barber by any chance?

    Enjoy your weekend.

    love, Angie, xx

  4. First, I love all your favorites and all the sentiments attached to them. I especially love your mother's handiwork, so very special.

    Second, you were a Water Service Vendor?
    Food Service Vendor?
    Furniture Refinish/Repair?
    Shoemaker/Shoe Repair?

    I liked Angie's guess!

    Third, nice pictures! Especially the redhead!

    Last, great jokes! I especially liked the blond joke from Rebecca but I will not be telling it to my sister-in-law, she does not appreciate blond jokes! (Guess what color her hair is?)!

    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
    This was fun!

  5. Marcy, I love your favorite things, you know I have almost an identical rosary but it was my mum who gave it to me for Christmas in 1990. I carry it in my purse all the time as well I wear her medal inside my prosthetic.
    Your jokes brought a smile to my face, you are always so "peppy" love them.
    OK another guess, you were the "Watkins Lady"
    Have a great weekend, enjoy those grand babies my friend....:-) Hugs

  6. I wish I could stop by here every day. Your blog always adds sunshine to my world!

    I do love the invisible couple joke!

    Have a great time visiting family!

  7. There goes Eileen again! And since Bernie guessed Watkins Lady, I'll guess Fuller Brush salesman....This is KILLING me!

    Thanks a LOT for shaming me. Actually one of my husband's facebook friends sent it to him. I can take NO credit!

  8. I love your blog and I too try to count my blessings each day.

  9. One last try and then I'm giving this a rest for the weekend (unless it keeps nagging at me):
    Installed Fireplaces or Wood Burning Stoves?
    Sushi Roller?
    Bulk Mailer?
    Refuse Collector?
    Art Therapist?
    Medical Taxi Service?
    Tub/Shower Refinishing?
    Crane Operator?
    Deodorant Distributor?

    Forgive me if I'm repeating myself or anyone else here, I've lost track of the many career guesses here!

  10. OK....Somebody take the List of Occupations book from Eileen. I know she has it there sometwhere!!!

  11. Dear Marcy, I hope you have a wonderful trip. Enjoy all of your precious time with your grandchildren. Everything you shared with us is beautiful but I especially love the rosary.
    Could you have possibly been a home health aide or a nurse? You have me so curious now LOL
    Blessings my friend :>)

  12. Hi Marcy, Did you deliver in home oxygen to the disabled and elderly? Probably not but I thought I'd give it a try anywho!
    Hope your weekend is filled with grandchildren kisses and hugs!
    I enjoyed your favorites Marcy but that rosary was beautiful as was the afghan.
    Have fun this weekend my fellow Musketeer.

  13. Ditto, ditto and ditto again on all the guesses. NO IDEA, but some kind of home health care....gotta be it. Drive safely my friend. Wonderful post today!

  14. must be worn out answering all these comments...but were you a

    water filter installer
    bottled water delivery
    furnace duct cleaner
    tool rental co.
    massage therapist

    and I now give up...takes too much brain power
    ...I have little to spare!

  15. Hi Marcy, Did you work at a dinosaur museum? :) Now, I have to know..was that you in the picture? I'm guessing it was..aren't you just adorable!! I have to tell you that I share your jokes daily with Sam..and the rest of the gang if they're home..but Sam always gets a big kick out of your jokes. He loved the duck and the chapstick. I loved that last one!! Thanks for the daily laughs..OK, now we've got to know the answer!!
    Love, Jerelene
    Have fun with the grandbabies..give them lots of hugs and kisses!!

  16. I got excited and forgot to tell you that the rosary and spread are just beautiful!! That it was your Mother's just makes it all the more special. Sorry..I'm typing faster than my brain can keep up with.. :)

  17. I'm back (Ray didn't want my 'help' painting, it pays to be messy!) so here goes again ~
    Something we all need?
    A Bible Distributor?
    No, you don't need a uniform for that.

    Something we all need, that you wore a uniform for, and this job was mostly done by men, and you needed strength to do it?
    A Roto-Rooter Person?
    A Waste Station/Water Treatment Worker?
    A Toilet Paper Distributor?
    A Chimney Sweeper? (I think someone already guessed that.)
    You maybe refilled ATM machines?
    A Bread Distributor? (Oh, wait, 'Man does not live by bread alone').
    A Body Parts Procurer? (I guess if you had to also deliver them that would entail a bit of strength.)
    Did you deliver whole bodies to labs for scientific research that all people would maybe benefit from?

    Oh, the possibilities of Marcy's fascinating job! Very intriguing!

    Okay, Ray's done painting the living room and does not want to start the dining room, so let me go help him clean up!
    'Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

  18. Response to Testing 1,2,3.. :-))
    Responding: 4,5,6.
    Hello my friend. I hope you are having a terrific weekend...
    Smiles from Jackie

  19. I hope you had a lovely weekend, marcy!
    I've had a busy week with family and home stuff, but will try to up-date my blog today! It's so hot here at the moment in the UK, don't feel like doing much at all, and I keep sneezing and my eyes are watering from hayfever, which is rotten :¬(
    But God is good, and the sun is shining and life is beautiful all the same!
    God bless you this day ~ Happy Monday!
    Mrs.P xx
