Happy Hump Day.
Okay, I'll admit it right up front. I'm cheating a little on your hump day funnies this week. I'm running behind on my editing and since you all seemed to really like last week's post, I'm going to give you Furniture Pet Woes - Part Two. Plus a joke or two, of course.
One crew tossed the hay from the lofts to the floor then another one moved it outside. I was in the second team. It went well until one of the upstairs crew decided to use a shovel to scrape up what was left and push it over the side - directly above where I was working. I don't want to tell you what he dumped on my head but the shower I took that night was very hot and very long. (Go ahead and laugh. My grandkids thought it was hysterical.)
We also spent some time walking the farm fields, gathering large pieces of debris - mostly tree limbs and pieces of metal siding. Biggest thing we found...a telephone pole, sheared off at its base and still trailing its wires, sitting in the middle of a bean field. We never did figure out where it had blown in from. I wish I'd gotten a picture of it for you.
Okay, let move on to your hump day funnies.
One thing we didn't cover last week was the age old problem of sectionals.
And then there are slippery chairs a poor kitty can slide right off of.
That 'slide right off of' problem seems to happen with couch cushions, too.
Why, a poor pet could disappear and be trapped forever.
It's just too horrifying to think about.
Let's switch to a joke.
I'm picking on little old ladies again.
(Did I tell you I just turned 65?)
With all the new technology regarding fertility recently, a 65-year-old friend of mine was able to give birth. When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, I went to visit.
'May I see the new baby?' I asked.
'Not yet,' she said. 'I'll make coffee and we can talk for a while first.'
Thirty minutes passed and I asked, 'May I see the new baby now?'
'No, not yet,' she said.
A little while later, I asked again, 'May I see the baby now?'
'No, not yet,' replied my friend.
Growing impatient, I asked, 'Well, when can I see the baby?'
'When he cries.' she told me.
'When he cries? Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?'
'BECAUSE I FORGOT WHERE I PUT HIM, O.K.?!!'
Oh, come on. That was funny.
Time for your "aw".
I almost didn't use this one because it was a little blatant in the "aw" department.
But it was just too cute to pass up.
Don't you think?
Did we get there? Over the hump and coasting toward the weekend?
I hope so.
Did you have a favorite?
Have a fantastic weekend - Memorial Day Weekend for my friends here in the States.
See you next week.
