Where is this thread abuot work? How did it go today? I sent the Cable things to friends of mine and they are voting for their favorite one. One of them likes #8 and my fav is #17 & #24 (so me---"Open mouth....". The voting will continue :) I can't WAIT for my husband to get home to read these to him.~ Curb
Mz is titled.."feels like the first day of schools eve"

I posted it last night then updated it just a few minutes ago..
I printed these out and they hang on our frig ~ ~ ~ "You want ME to tell you about something?" and my hubby cringes when I rip this from the frig. Now, I really did see this yesterday which I thought was the funniest thing ..... there is a very large cemetary sort of close by and I stopped driving (b/c you have to), said a short prayer for this person's family, but then I LOST it.....there was a car in the funeral procession.....that had suitcases strapped on top of it! wonder if 'they' know where this person really is b/c they could be in a suitcase....... I laughed SO hard Go to a funeral with suitcases ~ maybe it was Mofia THEN I laughed all the way home with,"When >> I <<< die, "Put a guitar case on your car. Put a Christmas tree on your car. Put a pickle on your car. Put a cat on your car. ...." I just could not stop laughing.....TALK about a funeral procession :) Curb
Out here it is not unusual to see pickup trucks with rifles in the back window in a funeral
Now doesn't this make you laugh ~ who killed who..... My hubby delivers mail to a cemetary.....I thought those lovely folks didn't need a mail-slot in their plot. A rifle ~ take the cake on unusual. ~ Curbie
Ms Curbie, I bet there's never a dull moment with you around..I'd sure like to be one of your neighbors!!!
Well thank you, Gloria. There really are very few dull moments here and we ARE neighbors ~ on here. I have always spent an incredible amount of time trying to figure out the world but then I simply laugh ~ at myself, at attitudes, at kids.... I don't know if it has to do with my Mom's genes or what. My Mom fell through the bathroom ceiling from the attic and truly was stuck ~ legs in the bathroom and rest of her in the attic. She said,"Do NOT TELL your Dad!" ok......won't he notice...... Then she yelled,"FIX DINNER!" ok... It was constant Lucille Ball in our household and the key words were,"DON'T tell DAD!" She put a crib together with our neighbor but she was on the inside. Nobody noticed until Mom asked,"Where does the mattress go?" uh.....where you're standing. She could not get out of the crib. Our neighbor said,"DO NOT TELL your DAD!" And then I marry this clown:) Curbie Yes, he was SO proud when he walked in with a lampshade hat

My Mom put a lightbulb in her mouth and we all prayed she didn't trip and uncle set his house on fire b/c he put his hat on top of a lamp to dry it off. It was a family gathering so we had enough people to put the fire out ~ talk about dim bulbs :) ~ Curbie Randy, put that lampshade on.....
That reminds me of the Christmas that I had that "duhhh" moment. I had a wood sconce on the wall, no shade on it. I'd put a little Christmas wreath of berries and greenery made from plastic and fabric..around the candle holder and a candle in the holder and lit it..once the candle burned down to the wreath, it went up in a blaze of glory. I'm glad someone was brave enough to grabbed a towel to smother the fire and threw it out the door... all my family was just staring at me in disbelief. I was kinda shocked myself!
In our family, I always say,">>> I <<< didn't do it" and everyone knows I did :) Glad it isn't just me Gloria :) ~ Curbie
OK ~ now listen to me, don't have to but instead of making New Years Resolutions.........WHY don't people say what they accomplished the previous year. "I AM PROUD of how many times ........I read at the nursing home, how many times I took care of my granchildren, I sang with the cashier at the grocery store, how many people's hands I shook, how happy ____ made me......... " We have to change this tradition. Who began it anyway ~ resolutions???? :) Curbie
Oh Curbie I like your idea
