Off to Church on Hump Day...Sort Of

Happy Hump Day

First, I want to thank DL Hammons again for choosing me for a blog blitz last week. It was a blast receiving comments from so many new guests. I received over 200 comments between the two blogs involved so it will take me quite a while to return all your visits but I really appreciated everyone who came by and especially those who became Followers.

On to hump day.

This has got to be the greatest hump day picture ever.

Don't you think so?

We've a lot of fun from time to time with church bulletin bloopers. 
How about these minutes from the Deacon's meeting?

The newly elected secretary for the Deacon Board at church submitted this report:
Deacon Meeting Minutes

October the something Deacon's meeting.
Present was most of the deacons; one was absent.
Chairman Tad asked Luke to say something, and he did.
New officers were needed; some of us were arm twisted into taking the positions. 
Some old business was remembered, and most of it had been approved. What wasn't was not important.
We tried to think of some new business, but it was decided that we're too old to be new.
Some of the deacons were getting tired so we decided to get out of the meeting.
(Secretary's note: I said I would type the meeting minutes; not that they would be worth a hoot!!)

Yup, that's the kind of minutes I'd take. 

Of course, good church goers never judge others. Including this young lady.

 A gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do.

Hmm, I seem to have stumbled onto a theme for this post so let's go with one more "church" item.

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.
After explaining the commandment to Honor thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?"
Without missing a beat, one little boy answered, "Thou shall not kill." 

I'll bet he has sisters.

I guess we've got room for one confession.


Okay, time your your weekly "aw".

This one may not get an immediate "aw" but take a second to enjoy her contemplation and see if you don't feel that "aw" coming on.

Did it work?

That's it for today. Did we get you there? 
Over the midweek hump and on the slippery slope to the weekend?
Excellent. My job is done.
(Did you have a favorite?)

Have a wonderful rest of your week and a fun filled weekend.
See you next Wednesday.

Really Bad Riddle for Today:

Q: What do you call a group of rabbits hopping backwards?
A: A receding hare line.

(I'm sorry.)


Maryann Miller said...

Thanks for the fun. Loved it all, but especially liked the cat confession. That one made me laugh out loud. The "aw" picture is priceless.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The pole dancing dog is a riot!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Thou shall not kill - LOL!

Lilica Blake said...

OMG, I love the pole-dancing dog! That is my absolute favorite. I'm becoming addicted to your site. Thank you for the giggles and smiles. :) Eva

Fanny Barnes Thornton said...

I'm so glad I found you from the Blog Blitz.
This post was hilarious - the minutes, the pictures. I think the cat one made me laugh the most. It had the perfect expression for the caption.
Thank you, too, for following my blog. I hope I'll give you something amusing, not and then.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Love the notes on the meeting. I would be so tempted if I got talked into doing that. We all need to laugh at ourselves a little.

LD Masterson said...

Maryann - Thanks for the mention on Facebook

Alex - See, we don't judge.

Diane - yup

Lilica - Hey, come by anytime. I'll do by best to give you a giggle.

Fanny - You're welcome and thanks for coming back.

Susan G/K - It would work for me, too.

Maria Zannini said...

Re: Thou shalt not kill

I'm glad the nuns never asked me that question.

Michael Di Gesu said...

I had my "AW" moment early. The pup on the pole got me. LOL

Always such fun dropping by here on Wednesday...

Thanks for the weekly laughs! WE all need them!

Mason Canyon said...

These are all so cute. Love the meetings from the Deacon Meeting. As the photos, I'll be smiling all day thinking about them. Have a great week and thanks for the laughs.

farawayeyes said...

I may be a day late, but it was worth it. 'a receding hare line' HA, HA, HA!

Brandon Ax said...

Oh man, the dog on the pole is priceless.

Michael - I'm glad you enjoyed.

Mason - Thanks back and you're welcome.

farawayeyes - Come by any time.

Jemi Fraser said...

Those minutes are awesome! Hope they never really need to know anything important!! :)

Heather Holden said...

That riddle at the end made me laugh the most! Make of that what you will... XD

Jessica R. Patch said...

Thanks for the laugh today! Loved it!

Misha Gericke said...

Hahahaha those are all funny. I write minutes like that too. :-)

LD Masterson said...

Jemi - Heck, I thought the important stuff ws in there. The rest was just details.

Heather - It just means you enjoy a good(?) riddle.

Jessica - I'm glad.

Misha - And I bet they get approved evevy time.

Julie Luek said...

As a former pastor's wife, I like church humor. One time our church celebrated our tenth anniversary-- of being at the church. But some folks mistook it as our tenth wedding anniversary and gave us cards accordingly. After some blushing, I asked one of the deacons to kindly announce and explain that we'd been married almost 18 years and that this celebration was for our time at the church. After all, our son was 13 at the time. We didn't want any shocked parishioners doing the math and being dismayed!

Arlee Bird said...

Just so happens that I'm on my church's administration council and I'm the one who's gotten rooked into taking all the minutes. After reading this I'm tempted. I guess it might not go over so well.

Gonna have to steal that hump day pic and post it to my sister...she'd love it!

Stephanie Faris said...

I love those meeting minutes. That's a secretary I'd love to meet!

LD Masterson said...

Julie - Love your little mix up. I bet it would have raised a few eyebrows.

Lee - Oh, go on. Give it a try. Maybe they won't even notice.

Millie - Please do. I'm all about sharing the laughs.

Stephanie - That's the kind of secretary I'd like to be.

Lady Lilith said...

Lol. I am so with you on the humpday shot. Thanks for the good laugh.

Carolyn Brown said...

The photos and snippets are very cute and also clever.

Liz Fichera said...

Oh, those pics! :) Where to start...I loved them ALL!!!

Crystal Collier said...

Oh my, that's punny. The giraffe is definitely my favorite. I'm still chuckling over it. Best of luck returning all those comments! I remember when I got blitzed it took me two weeks to catch up. (It was totally worth it though.)

Cate Masters said...

Animal pictures always help get us over hump day so well, don't they? So cute.

Mark Means said...

As always, a very entertaining tribute to Wednesday! :)

LD Masterson said...

Lady Lilith - My pleasure. Thanks for coming by.

Carolyn - Thanks. Glad you enjoyed.

Liz - Yay! I scored a 100%.

Crystal - Since I limit myself to blogging/visiting a couple days a week, I fear it will take me longer. But I know it will be worth it.

Cate - Just one more thing animals do for us.

Mark - Glad you liked it.
