Kids

We are boating back from our island today and wanted to share something that should make you smile.

Hubby and I got a kick out of these cutie pies.

I hope everyone in the U.S. had a terrific Memorial Day weekend.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

Only in Texas

Texas Beer Joint Sues Church in MT. Vernon, Texas.

Drummond's Bar began construction on an expansion of their building to increase their business.

In response, the local Baptist Church started a campaign to block the bar from expanding with petitions and prayers. Work progressed right up until the week before the grand reopening when lightning struck the bar and it burned to the ground!

Firearms Question

I have dear friends on both sides of the handgun issue, those who believe easy access to hand guns is not good for this country and those who believe government has no business dictating ownership one way or the other. I have gained valuable understanding from both arguments. I have made my final decision.

The Ole' Biker

A crusty ole’ biker, out on a long summer ride in the country, pulls up to a tavern in the middle of nowhere, parks his bike and walks inside.

As he passes through the swinging doors he sees a sign hanging over the bar:

Misfortune?

Two philosophers were sitting at a restaurant, discussing whether or not there was a difference between misfortune and disaster.

"There is most certainly a difference," said one. "If the cook suddenly died and we couldn't have our dinner that would be a misfortune -- but certainly not a disaster."

L, D or P?

Comment Game

It's time to play the comment game again. We are on the boat, but most of you already know that.

Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks. Let's see if we can do this weeks comment game on food only. Any kind of food or drink.

Meeting Lisa Ceaser

Several months ago Lisa Ceaser from Lisa Ceaser Photography and Live and Learn let me know that she was coming to San Francisco for training and if I wanted to meet while she was here.

Lulu

A little girl asks her mum, 'Mum, can I take the dog for a walk around the block?'

The Flower Show

Just in case you need a laugh today. Age does have some advantages not available to youth.

Grumpy Old Woman

There is a huge house in our street. The extended family is run by a grumpy old woman with a pack of irritable dogs allowed to run without leashes.

Her car isn’t taxed or insured and doesn’t even have a number plate, but the police still do nothing.

Elijah

The Sunday school teacher was carefully explaining the story of Elijah the Prophet and the false prophets of Baal. She explained how Elijah built the altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer in pieces and laid it upon the altar.

And then Elijah commanded the people of God to fill four barrels of water and pour it over the altar. He had them do this four times.

Flawlessly Logical

The wife and I were sitting around the breakfast table one Sunday morning. I said to her, "If I were to die suddenly, I want you to immediately sell all my stuff."

"Now why would you want me to do something like that?" she asked.

The Dalmatian

A Sunday School helper was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children began discussing the dog's duties.

"They use him to keep crowds back," said one youngster.
