TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM..... The Learning Channel 

An elderly couple was at home watching TV. The husband had the remote and was switching back and forth between a fishing channel and a porn channel. His wife became more and more annoyed and finally said, "For god's sake, Harold, Leave it on the porn channel. You already know how to fish!"         

wive's know best!

Jade's Ice Cream Sundae

so, jade has been taking an art class and she's doing really well at it.  i told her to draw me some pictures and i'd "put it out there" for my friends and whatever i got for them, she would get the $$$.  talk about excited.  anyway, her 1st picture is below..... ice cream sundae.  i'm selling it for $1.00 thru PAY PAL.   there's no download button so once paypal has notified me of your purchase, i will send you the image(s).

tons of thanks from both me and jade.....

I Tried Being Normal....

absolutely NOTHING going on over here.  got a few cards done; rearranged some lamps and went to mow the lawn but it sounded like the mower blew up!  it didn't.  the battery needed a good cleaning and i need a new air filter.  til i can go buy a new air filter, a neighbor offered to mow the lawn.

and now i dig, once again, into my stash....

sent this one to my pastor for his birthday.  he loved it.  very typical of ME  - LOL.

i hate the end of the month.  so much going on and no $$$$ to spend frivolously.  o well.  more time to get crafty!

happy saturday!

TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM...... for us "old folk".....

While on a road trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. 
After finishing their meal, they left the  restaurant, and resumed their trip. 
When leaving, the elderly woman unknowingly left her glasses on the table, and she didn't miss them until they had been driving for about forty minutes.

By then, to add to the aggravation, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turnaround, in order to return to the restaurant to retrieve her glasses.

All the way back, the elderly husband became the classic grouchy old man.  He fussed and complained, and scolded his wife relentlessly during the entire return drive.  The more he Chided her, the more agitated he became. He just wouldn't let up for a single minute. 
To her relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant.  As the woman got out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old geezer yelled to her: "While you're in there, you might as well get my hat and the credit card." 

yep.  i'm getting close to this.  don't ask!

Anchors Aweigh

i lead such an exciting life!  absolutely NOTHING has been going on.  puppy is better yet still a little bit leery when i go to pet her face.  maybe something scared her and i'm sure she'll get over it.

the weather has turned chilly and windy and gray.  feels more like october!  sheesh.

i haven't been in my room ... still.  too much to do getting the house "unwinterized."  i took my birdbath out of the corner of my yard and planted some hostas.  my neighbor was getting rid of alot of them so i said i'd take a few.  SHE even planted them for me.

i'm having a gate put on my back deck so i can let puppy out just to enjoy the sunshine.  i really, REALLY, don't need it because she doesn't run away and she knows to "do her stuff" in the yard.  but i thought that she loves laying in the sun and i'll keep the sliding door open so she can come in and out.  of course, the door will NOT be open on HOT days, nor will she be going out to lay in the sun.  we'll see how it all works out.

so, here i am digging, once again, into my stash......

this went to one of the men from church for his birthday.
he lives on the lake and i thought this would be good.  he LOVED it.
i used the ANCHORS AWEIGH set by A*MUSE and
some old map paper from my stash.

today is food pantry and i'm off to work it.  i LOVE working food pantry.

happy tuesday and thanks so much for stopping by.

TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM.....  gotta love kids.....

A priest was walking down the street one day when he noticed a very small boy trying to press a doorbell on a house across the street. However, the boy was very small, and the doorbell was too high for him to reach.

After watching the boy’s efforts for some time, the priest moved across the street and walked up behind the little fellow. Placing his hands kindly on the child’s shoulder, he leaned over and gave the doorbell a solid ring. Crouching down to the child’s level, the priest smiled benevolently and asked, “And now what, my little man?”

To which the boy replied, “Now we run!”
