Hump Day Funnies and a Favor Needed

Happy Hump Day

First, thanks for all the poor-baby's last week for my dental crisis.  It took a couple (not fun) dentist visits and I really do miss that tooth, but all is well now.

Next, I want to ask a favor. My dad is seriously ill. He lives a few hours away so I'll be spending a lot of time on the road for a while. If I miss visiting you or if I don't answer your comments, or if my hump day post doesn't happen until Saturday or not at all, please bear with me. Also, for my friends of faith, please offer a prayer for my dad and for all of us who love him so much. Thanks.

Now, as are your hump day funnies.

This one's a little long but it gave me a good laugh.

I had everything planned and told my wife I would not be going to church with her on Sunday.

She reminded me that Sunday was the Sabbath Day and hunting a trophy buck should not be part of the Sabbath.

So I explained to her…
1. I scouted the area all summer.
2. I searched out the best location for my tree-stand.
3. I set it all up a month ahead of time.
4. I trailed the herd and picked out a trophy buck.
5. Two days before opening day I rechecked every aspect of the hunt.
6. Everything was in place. This was destined to be an epic hunt and I was going.

Sunday morning, I woke up at 2 a.m. I put on my camo, loaded my pack, and set out for my stand.

As I approached my deer stand, I saw...

I called my wife and told her I had decided not to hunt on the Sabbath and would meet her at church.

The Sunday sermon was entitled...  "The Lord Works In Mysterious Ways".

My husband isn't a hunter but I still thought that was funny. 

I found another headline I'd thought you'd like.

Good to know.

This isn't a newspaper but it calls for the same question...

Who edits these things?!?

I've got a bit of a problem this week. I can't decide on your "aw". And since my brain is too tired to make decisions, you get a special treat. Two "aw"s for the price of one. (Such a deal.)
These are both dogs so no dog/cat rivalry here. 
And I think there's a theme.

 This guy wants out...

 And this guy wants up.

What do you think? Both worth an "aw"?
That's it for today. Are you there? 
Over the midweek hump and headed for a great weekend?
I hope so.

Thanks again for your support.

Thought for Today:

If you want the rainbow, you have got to put up with the rain.


Carol Kilgore said...

So sorry to hear about your dad. I know how that is. Prayers forthcoming. And a hug.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I will be praying for your father.

The Lord does work in mysterious ways. LOL

Crystal Collier said...

Definitely both worthy of an aw. Oh my goodness, that bear in the tree... Too awesome. My teenage son was reading over my shoulder and we both got a good laugh over the titles. Seriously, people. Seriously... =)

Julie Flanders said...

I'm sorry to hear about your Dad. I will hope for the best for him. Take care!

And definitely both of those cuties are worthy of an aww.

Mason Canyon said...

Praying for your Dad. The jokes always make my day. Be safe on your travels and take care of yourself.

Murees Dupé said...

So sorry to hear about your dad. I hope he will get better soon. Please travel safely.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Prayers for your father!
I'd think that teen pregnancies drop off at age twenty...

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Prayers for you dad. Love the hunting joke. I'm going to show it to my brother who works in the woods and hunts. He sees bears pretty often.

Maryann Miller said...

So sorry to hear about your dad, sending good thoughts to you and your whole family.

I do think the puppy at the bottom of the steps got my "aw."

Take care....

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. Lots of good wishes and prayers coming your way.

That last pic of the puppy is my favorite. Such a cutie.

Karen Walker said...

Sorry about your father. Hope all goes well.

Robin said...

It is horrible when our parents get older. I feel for you and am sending out prayers for your dad.

That bear in the deer stand... funny!

Maria Zannini said...

You and your dad are staying in my prayers.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Thanks for the funnies. Here's hoping your dad gets well soon!

Heather Holden said...

Aw, so sorry about your dad! I'll think positive thoughts for him...

Also, loving today's "aww" pics! The second one is especially adorable...

Anonymous said...

I love the Aw and especially cracked up over the bear in the tree. Thanks for sharing. And I do hope your father is doing better soon. I was fortunate to spend time with both of my parents last year while they were ill, and wouldn't trade one frustrating, worried, funny, wonderful memory for the world.

mshatch said...

That last pic gets an aw from me and I sure hope your dad gets feeling better soon.

Cathy Kennedy said...

Needed dental repair or work is always such a pain...literally. So, glad you're doing better. I'll be praying for your dad. I'm sorry he's not well. I can relate somewhat, my 91-year old FIL has some health related issues lately. God is bigger than all these things and will trust in Him to tend to those we love.

Your hump day funnies put a smile on my face. I, especially liked the story of the hunter. My dad is big into deer hunting and I bet he would get a kick out of this one.

Headlines are priceless sometimes. It makes you wonder about these so called editors in charge at these publications.

Your "aw" dilemma was a difficult choice. The puppy facing the huge challenge to climb those steps got me.

Have a good week, and don't worry about us in Blogosphere. We'll always be here whenever you can squeeze us in. :D

Mike Keyton said...

Prayers from this side of the pond, too.You know that.

Don't you just love statistics : )

Lexa Cain said...

I'm so sorry your father is ill. Sending him my sincere hopes he's better soon. Those headlines were funny and the Aw's were like two sides of the not-so-same coin. So cute!
