Friday Funnies


Oops, It isn't Friday Yet Is It?

But I will be out shopping so here is my Friday joke early. And...
on top of that it is a Thanksgiving joke that I should have posted last week.
But I just found it so here it is.
Be sure to go visit with Kim at Homesteaders Heart this Friday
for the real Friday Funnies.
Thanksgiving with The Old Folks
A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York two days before Thanksgiving and says, " Son, I hate to ruin your day, but I have some bad news to tell you. Your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough."
"Dad, what are you talking about?" the son screams.
"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and you tell her."
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this."
She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "the kids are coming for Thanksgiving and even paying their own way."
OK, I think that is pretty cute. So if anyone has any extra time on Friday and want to link me up with Kim, then go right ahead. But I will be out shopping on Black Friday and probably will not be on the computer.....probably....maybe.....we'll see.

I will not go close to a mall on Friday, nor will I go to a grocery store, a big box store, or a little strip mall. There are too many crazy people out there, and I want no part of it all! Besides, the gift cards I'm buying the grandkids don't go on sale!

I have made the last of the trips to the store for food. This time it was to Sam's for milk, water, orange juice, and apple juice, and whipping cream and pickles. Now I think I have it all! I haven't finished cleaning yet though, so should get busy.

I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to you! I treasure you as a friend, and not just because you send me gifts! I love that wallet more and more every day and again thank you!

And my computer seems to work better in Blogger now, but still doesn't work in gmail.

Love ya,
Marge

I can't do Black Friday. Too early. Too crowded. And me? Too disorganized!

Good one Lisa... my dad would have loved this one for sure. I hope you get all your shopping done that you needed to do so you can kick back with munchies and get ready to get it going on tomorrow with B.E.D.L.A.M. It ought to be a barn burner.

Good one! Black Friday. Um, I went and got truck washed, which was way overdue, went to grocery store and came home. No shopping!

My ex and I used to do it every year to buy grandkids stuff. We actually had fun LOL.

I hope you had a great time!!
