Friday Funnies

Well, here it is AGAIN, another Friday. How do I know it is Friday? Because it is time to link up with Kim at Homesteaders Heart for your funny bone tickle! Where does the week go? I do know this...I still don't have a tree up nor decorated and Christmas is less than a week away. I have my gifts all bought, I have the gifts all wrapped, but NOT UNDER a tree...see sentence above. I have found some recipes that I want to try for our Christmas get together, and have planned pretty much everything except when I will get with my son and dil. Life is difficult when they live six hours away and work one job on mid-nights and the other during the day Mon-Fri job.

I have a friend coming over today for me to take her picture with her sister and daughter, shhhh, it is a Christmas gift for her daddy! This friend is one that I have taken most of my photography classes with and she asked ME to take her pictures...that made me feel really good. Plus I have my grand daughter for the next three days!!! Hip hip hooray! then Sunday I will trade her for my grandson and keep him till Christmas Eve when we will take him home to exchange gifts. We are really blessed. Life is coming together so nice, I am proud that my family is all healthy, and in my life. As you all know, family is the most important thing to me so right now my world is all ok. I also love the giving of gifts, I know it is NOT the true meaning of Christmas, but I do feel that it is a part of the reason. Giving of one's self. I am a very giving person, maybe even to a fault. But I feel good to know that I have been so blessed.

I am blessed to have many new friends, and many old friends. I love sending out Christmas cards and letters. But this didn't happen. I am very sorry to say that I just didn't get the stamps for the cards this year. I did have this problem....please don't laugh, there are just some things I don't really know...... I DON'T know you all THAT well.

You see.....

I went to the post office to buy stamps for my Christmas cards. I told the clerk, "May I have 50 Christmas stamps?"

The clerk said, "What denomination?"

I looked her right in the eye and said, "God help us. Has it really come to this?

Ok fine, give me 6 Catholic, 12 Presbyterian, 10 Lutheran and 22 Baptists." Some of you may not be getting any Christmas cards this year!

Oh that's funny my friend.
I hope your photo shoot goes well. Did you ever make it down here? I couldn't remember when you were going to St. Augustine.

Debra said...

Too funny!

Happy Friday!

Marge said...

Okay, I'm one of the Lutheran ones, remember? I've never heard of such a thing as asking the demonination of stamps....too funny!

Of course your friend from your photography class would ask you to take the pictures.....who else would she ask? You're going to have to realize that you have learned, in addition to your natural talent, to take beautiful pictures. You should feel really good about that, because you do a good job.

Heading into town between snow storms. Only had a couple of inches of snow last night, but blizzard warning is on for tomorrow and Sunday. Maybe I'll get the baking done and house cleaned!

Debbie said...

Have a JESUS-filled day ^i^

Michelle said...

That is funny! I can't wait to see pics from your shoot today. Guess what I did? I found a 6 ft silver aluminum tree on ebay and bought it!

Lisa @ Stop and Smell the Chocolates said...

LOL - good one!! I do have a tree, but still haven't decorated it - too busy with cards, gifts, and baking. I had hoped to do it tonight, but I think it will be tomorrow.

Merry Christmas to you!!

What the hell was she talking about? Which denomination? They don't really have them for the separate branches of Christianity do they? Do they also have them for reformed Jews, Conservative? Orthodox? :)

Merry Christmas to you, Lisa! This is my favorite time of the year and I hope you and yours are doing well!
