Happy Hump Day

Hey there!  Happy Hump Day.  I'm running around franticly trying to get ready to leave tomorrow for the Writers' Police Academy in Jamestown, NC so this will be a short post.  (Why do I always leave everything until the last minute?)  I'll tell you all about it when I get home next week.

But I couldn't leave you without a little something to help you over the Hump.  So here are a couple giggles for the day.  Scoll down slowly - you want to read the text before seeing the picture.



  NO, I HAVEN'T SEEN YOUR LIPSTICK!

Why would you even ask me that?
I am so insulted!
Every time something goes missing around here,
everybody looks at me!









This next one's actually a bit sad.  We all hear about puppy mills and the problems that can occur with too much inbreeding.  Here's an example of an inbred cat.






Aw, come on.  You laughed.  You know you did.
 
 
Okay, that will have to do for now.  Tomorrow night I get to do a "ride along" on patrol with a Guilford County Sheriff's Deputy.  I'm excited.  If I can, I'll do a quick post from NC on Friday.  Otherwise, see you next week.
 
Groaner of the Day: The maharajah of an Indian Province issued a royal decree. He ordered that no one was to kill any of the area's beautiful Bengal Tigers while he was the country's leader. The decree was honored until there were so many tigers running loose that the people were in constant danger.  
 
After a local family was eaten and the ruler still refused to revoke the decree, the people revolted and threw the maharajah from power.
 
This is the first known instance of the reign being called on account of the game.

The pic of the pooch with lipstick is priceless. So glad I read the caption before looking at the picture.

Have fun a Writer's Police Academy.

I'm glad you said to read the text first. The pictures were great.

I especially liked the inbre(a)d cat.

Have fun on your ride along. Hope they let you go when it's over. :)

(I have video on my blog today of a much younger Greg.)

Angela Brown said...

Yes, LD, I did crack up when I sat that inbe*d cat. As usual, that groaner was silly and gave me another giggle.

Hoping you have a great time for the ridealong :-)

LD Masterson said...

Thanks, Isis. Glad you liked it.

LD Masterson said...

You're welcome, Lynette. I owe you for getting me addicted to on-line jigsaw puzzles.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - If they won't let me go, will you bring bail?

LD Masterson said...

Thanks, Angela. And I, too, cracked up the first time I saw that cat. One of my prerequisites for putting a pic on my blog.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Yes, I laughed at the inbred cat!!

Maria Zannini said...

Ref: If they won't let me go, will you bring bail?

LOL. Behave yourself.

But keep my phone # handy just in case. ;-)

Cate Masters said...

Oh how cool you get to ride along with the Guilford police. Wonder what sort of trouble they get into in NC? :) Hope you'll let us know how it goes.
Yep, the pic and the groaner gave me a few smiles.
Have a great trip!

I found you through Nay! I am embarrassed to say I am still laughing at the inbred cat. I even shook my head attempting to make the laughter stop...still no success!

Lydia Kang said...

The lipstick dog was too funny! I liked the joke, but I had to read the last line twice before I got it. Duh!

LD Masterson said...

Maria - got you on speed dial.

LD Masterson said...

Thanks, CAte. I hope I come back with some great stories to share.

LD Masterson said...

Diane - Couldn't help yourself, huh?

LD Masterson said...

Pidg - Welcome. Glad you found me. And I'm glad I gave you a good laugh.

LD Masterson said...

Lydia - Some groaners I have to read out loud and really listen to get them. Then I do the "duh".

Liz Fichera said...

Oh that puppy pic is too adorable! Have a fun time at the conference! A friend of mine from Carina Press is going to be there. Sounds like it will be a good time.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

LD Masterson said...

Liz - Thanks. I think it's going to be quite an experience.

LD Masterson said...

Sarah - I not a big cat person myself but they do offer great photo possibilities.
