Happy Hump Day - I've Been Blitzed!!!

Happy Hump Day.

I'm scrambling  a bit this morning. I was behind doing today's post due do assorted grandchildren happenings and I discovered this morning that I was the lucky recipient of a BLOG BLITZ, 


 courtesy of blogger DL Hammons. Thank you, DL. You've made my day.

Well, except now I'm bouncing between getting this post done and answering all the lovely blitzers who are leaving comments on last week's post.  A rather nice dilemma, wouldn't you say?


So, let's get on to some hump day funnies.

This one just cracked me up. No excuse.



Do you like "just the right moment, just the right angle" pictures. Here are a couple that caught my eye.



I had to look at this one twice.



This one needs some blood spatter but I feel a mystery story coming on.



I hope this is just the camera angle, but you hear stories...


You know, it's been a while since I gave you a real groaner. In celebration of my getting blitzed, I offer this one:

Smitty was a heating and cooling technician. His assistant was a small chimpanzee he had trained to do all the duct work. The chimp had no fear of heights or confined spaces, and worked for bananas.

One day, Smitty got a call from a customer who said his air conditioner had broken down. Smitty went over and discovered a problem in an air duct. The customer asked if it would be hard to repair.

"No problem," replied Smitty, "I can fix it in no time with a little duct ape." 
I know. I'm sorry.
Or maybe you prefer the one liners...
 The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.

When you've seen one shopping center you've seen  a mall.
His will was a dead giveaway.
Okay, I'm done. I promise.
Let move on your your weekly "aw".
Do you like this one?

Some moms might not allow this but I say love is love.


That's it. Are we there yet? Over the hump and heading for the weekend?

I hope so.  Did you have a favorite?

For all my Christian friends, I wish you a joyous and blessed Easter.

#1Nana said...

As a west coast resident, I'm always hours later to the Blitz than those early risers in the east. Now I don't know if I should Blitz today's post or last Wednesday's where everyone else posted a comment...and that is the beauty of retirement: the biggest challenge I face today is deciding where to comment! Loved the quote by Proust. Happy Blitz.

Michelle McLean said...

farawayeyes said...

I love your 'jump day' posts. I'm a lazy blogger and my dashboard is all messed up, do if I don't remember who posts when, I don't make it by their place in time. Today I got lucky cause it's your Blitz Dsy!

BTW, I live the picture with the doggie kisses. Never bothered me and my kids survived.

farawayeyes said...

That should be Hump Day, crazy smart phone.

Jeff Hargett said...

I do wish everyone made hump days happy. :) I hope you enjoy the blitz. Glad to see you back in action.

This was such a fun mid-week happy. Thank you for sharing your delightful brand of humor with us. Happy Blitz Day!

Love the flaming cow. LOL. And the puppy kisses are too cute. We didn't have a dog when the kids were little, but I totally would have allowed that!
HAPPY BLITZ DAY!!!

Jessica Peterson said...

your post was lovely!! Thank you for all the smiles! I think the dog and baby was my favourite :)

Happy Blitz day!

LD Masterson said...

Whew. I finished answering all the lovely blitz comments that were left on my previous post (before this one when up). Now let me get started here.

Christina - Thank you on both.

Ella - My pleasure.

Alex - I've always been in awe of how you handle so many comments. Now even more so.

#1Nana - Hey, my grandkids say I'm the #1 Nana. Actually, I don't have a number. But the license plates on my car say Da Nana.

Michelle - You're welcome and thank you.

Mason - Thanks all around.

Masquerade - My pleasure.

Laura - Glad you enjoyed them.

Robin - Oh good, I thought it was just me.

Heather - The pictures played with my eyeballs. And thanks.

Vikas - Thank you and thanks for coming by.

mshatch said...

Great aw and while I might not allow the dog to lick the kid I wouldn't freak out over it. What's a few germs among friends, right?

Chrys Fey said...

HAPPY BLITZ DAY!!!! :D Those pictures are hilarious! You just made my night. :P

Melanie Schulz said...

Happy Easter to you, too!

J. Lenni Dorner said...

I am loving your Hump Day posts! Fun, quick and a little bit of awwww.

Happy Blitz Day!

Donna Smith said...

I had to go back and read last week's too. Fun. I'll have to stop back on Wednesday's now!
Happy Blitz!

Leandra Wallace said...

Ha, great funnies and pics! Happy Blitz to you!

Carrie-Anne said...

Happy Blitz Day!

I recently saw the picture of the dog licking the baby in one of my dog groups on Facebook. It had a caption from the dog's POV, about how s/he was licking the baby's nose to make it wet like a dog's. The dog thought the baby were sick because the nose was dry.

Jemi Fraser said...

Woot! Happy Blitz Day!! :)

The Awww moments are always my faves, but those 'double take' photos are pretty awesome too!

Teacher-Mom said...

What a nice giggle gift you gave me today! Happy Blitz!

Inderpreet Kaur Uppal said...

The quote at the end perfectly reflects you. God bless and I am sharing it.
Thanks
@indywrites.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

The cow made me snort. Loved the one liners too. And I probably couldn't handle the full on puppy lip lock...maybe offer the pooch the toes? But then again, within a few months the kids will be eating dirt and rocks...might as well start the immunity building now!

Happy Blitz Day :)

LD Masterson said...

Jen - Thanks!

Murees - Thanks. As always.

Susan F.S. - Actually, having all the great comments are making me a little woozy. It's good.

Bish - Yay, I got an Awww.

2unpublishedgirls - Please do.

Michelle - You're welcome.

april - Thank you.

Donna Hole said...

Well, the cow fire was truly a gas!!

But, love is love. THEY say a dog's tongue is the best sanitizer, so . .

....dhole

Jaimie Ramsey said...

Thank you so much for the laugh! I definitely liked the cat ones in this post--first and last. Hilarious and really cute. :)

Happy Hump Day, and a blessed Easter to you as well!! <3

GSMarlene - Thanks on both.

M.J. - Yup, that's what it did to me.

Michelle - Thanks!

L.G. - I'm glad you liked them.

farawayeyes - Feel free to come any day. My smart phone does that to me all the time. I text with my grandson Cooper and the silly phone changes Coop to poop. He doesn't find it funny. (but his sister sure does)

Jeff - Thanks. I'm loving the blitz, although it's going to take me a month to return everyone's visit.

Charmaine - Thank you back.

Suzanne - That's how my eyes look when I've been editing. Even without the LSD.

Jaimie - I'm glad you enjoyed them. Thanks.

Heather - It's been lots of fun, thanks.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Happy Blitz Day. No dog could do that to my baby. The one I don't currently have. You picked some fun pictures. The cat one was hilarious and yes stories have claimed that cows can fart fire. Have a good one.

Mark Koopmans said...

Hey,

My favorite is the dog/baby picture... it's really amazing how it looks like the dog is licking the baby.

What?

PS: Thinking about you all up there in the Northeast... #BostonStrong, baby, Boston Strong.

lillian888 said...

A cat on LSD is a terrifying thought. Unless it's a Siamese, then it's just business as usual. Happy Blitz Day!

Medeia Sharif said...

Funny stuff. Happy belated blitz day.

sdneeveindieauthor.com said...

Ha! Hilarious! Happy belated Blitz Day. :)

Fanny - Happy to have you come by any time.

Kim - Did you have to look at it a couple times? It messed with my eyeballs.

Rhonda - Needs blood, right?

Beverly Fox said...

I'm late but Happy Belated Blitz Day to you! Got a huge laugh out of this post, I'll have to remember to come here every Wednesday!

Mike Keyton said...

Some moms might not allow this but I say love is love. or the baby has a dirty nose.

LD Masterson said...

Beverly - Please do.

Mike - Ah, that's a definite possibility.

Julie Dao said...

L.D., I am SO sorry I am late to the game (had a very busy work day yesterday) but HAPPY BELATED BLITZ!!!! I love your blog and your Wednesday posts always make me laugh and say "Awwww," without fail. Like that adorable dog and baby photo. AWWWWWW

Cate Masters said...

Love the Proust quote, and the pics were hilarious!

LD Masterson said...

Thanks, Donna.

Nicki Elson said...

Happy belated Blitz Day!!! I'd been checking back cuz I just knew you'd have a Humpday Funnies for us...then I got distratcted for two whole days. Anyhow, I'm happy you enjoyed it. :)

I have to admit, I said Ew instead of Aw at this week's photo. I so enjoyed the cow one though---the local news was just reporting about some contraption to help capture cows' gas for energy. Seriously.

Have a beautiful and blessed Easter celebration!

Susan Oloier said...

Love the photos. Happy Belated Blitz day to you.

Haddock said...

Ha ha ....the "just the right moment, just the right angle" had me look at them twice especially the first one.

Margo Kelly said...

Oh. My. Gosh. Those pictures are awesome!!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Woohoo, over 100 comments! Enjoy being blitzed, LD.

Just went I was tired of cat pictures, you post one of a blitzed out cat that makes me laugh heartily! Love it.

A very blessed Easter and yummy chocolate eggs to you,

xoRobyn

kmckendry - Late is fine. Thanks.

Heather - Glad you liked them.

Pk Hrezo said...

Loved those! What could be cuter than pets and babies. I have a few of when my son was an infant and my cat would always curl up next to him. so sweet. :)

LD Masterson said...

Pk - I have a great shot of my dog curled protectively around my infant grandson. Priceless.
