    My dad, G-d rest his soul, used to call me something that sounded like something out of a cartoon, when I was little. I don't wish to repeat it here though. It's not dirty or anything. It's just "unique".

    lol @ Jeff, my kids dad used to call my daughter *bumper morgan* cuz when she was learning to crawl she always looked down, never forward, and she would bump into something, back up and try it again. Like a bumper car. She had that name for years. Lmao.

    It's Monday. That must mean it's time for a joke.

    .A man came to work on Monday morning with two black eyes. His boss asked what happened.

    The man replied, “On Sunday, I was sitting behind a big woman at church. When we stood up to sing hymns, I noticed that her dress was caught in her butt crack, so I was trying to be nice and I pulled it out for her. Then, she turned around and punched me in the eye.”

    The boss asked, “Okay, so where did you get the other shiner?”

    “Well,” the man said, “I figured she didn’t want it out, so I pushed it back in.”

    A church had to hire a new pastor. Over the protests of one vocal male member,
    a woman was hired as the new senior pastor.
    After the new pastor had been there a few weeks, a member of the congregation
    offered to take the new pastor fishing. The vocal objector reluctantly agreed to
    allow them to use his boat and to go along.
    The trio got into the boat and motored out on the lake. When they got ready to
    fish, they realized that all their tackle had been left on the dock. One of the
    men commented that he guessed they would just have to go back and get it.
    The lady pastor said, “That won’t be necessary,” as she got out of the boat
    and started walking across the water toward the dock.
    The old grouch said, “See I told you we never should have hired that woman!
    She can’t even swim!!”

    Good Monday banasy and chrissy

    How are two of my favorites doing today ? I see things went downhill on the blogs again yesterday. At least there was a partial day of peace and contentment.

    Against his better judgment, the big game hunter is talked into taking both his wife AND her mother along on one of his expeditions.

    It does not go well. The mother-in-law is, if anything, harder to get along with in the wilds than she was in the city. And to make matters worse, she won't even abide by the simple camp rules designed to keep the safari safe.

    One night after dinner, the hunter's wife realizes her mother is missing. Panicked, she rushes to her husband and begs him to inst itute a search.

    He sighs, and together they set out. But before they've gone far, they hear throaty growling. Soon they come upon a small clearing in which the mother-in-law stands, backed up against thick, seemingly impenetrable jungle brush, and facing a huge male lion.

    The wife whispers urgently, "What are we going to do?"

    "Nothing whatever," responds her husband. "The lion got himself into this mess, now let him get himself out of it.

      Hello to you bobcat and chrissy. They deleted my post probably because I said good night in French. We are on the road to Nice and 3 of us are sharing the driving. Temps there are in the 80s so beach time is in order. May try my luck in Monte Carlo and stay here forever.Hope all is well in your worlds.

    Airman Jones was assigned to the induction center, where he advised new recruits about their government benefits, especially their GI insurance.

    It wasn't long before Captain Smith noticed that Airman Jones was having a staggeringly high success-rate, selling insurance to nearly 100% of the recruits he advised.

    Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room and listened to Jones' sales pitch.

    Jones explained the basics of GI Insurance to the new recruits, and then said, "If you have GI Insurance and go into battle and are killed, the government has to pay $200,000 to your beneficiaries. If you don't have GI insurance, and you go into battle and get killed, the government only has to pay a maximum of $6000."

    "Now," he concluded, "which group do you think they are going to send into battle first?"
