Some Fun

I think these things are fun.
Here we go....

I was going to post a time-traveling joke...
But you guys didn't like it.



 Several women appeared in court, each accusing the others of causing the trouble that they were having in the apartment building where they all lived.

The judge, with Solomon-like wisdom decreed, "Okay, I'm ready to hear the evidence...I'll hear the oldest first."

The case was dismissed for lack of testimony.



A Spanish magician tells the audience he will disappear on the count of 3.
He says: “Uno, dos....”*POOF!!*
He disappeared without a tres.


Did you hear about the young lady who was addicted to line dancing?
They put her in a two step program.



I went to the library the other day and found a book titled "How to Hug".

Wanting to learn the secrets of intimacy I quickly grabbed the book and headed to the checkout counter.

The librarian was polite but said I couldn't check out the book because it was the seventh volume of Encyclopedia Britannica.



Did you hear about the new garlic diet?
You don't actually lose weight, but you look thinner from a distance.



A young hiker is traveling thru a heavily wooded area and comes upon a Monastery full of friars and monks. He knocks on the door for directions, however is invited inside for "Fish and Chips" for lunch.

After lunch he exclaimed that this was the most delicious fish and chips he had ever eaten. Seeing a chef emerge from the kitchen, he raced over and said, "Are you the Fish Friar?

To which the reply was, "No, I am the Chip Monk.”


Sally was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the bottle. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 5-year-old daughter to answer the phone.

“Mommy can’t come to the phone to talk to you right now. She’s hitting the bottle.


Those gave me a smile.
I hope they gave you a smile.

Thirty-two years ago today...

Laura Katherine came into our lives.
We've been forever blessed.

Here are some pictures through the years...

This next picture was a gift from a dear friend in Kentucky.
The gift included the clothes, the picture being taken and the frame.
Wow. That was quite a gift.

This picture was the result of a gift card from Laura's Aunt Pat.
That was back in the day when places like Glamour Shots were the rage.
(I think that picture is very classy.)

This picture I took, years later.
That's when I used to have a holiday/birthday tree.

Here's Laura when she worked at the World Hunger Farm near Waco...

That's where she met the love of her life...
 and later they came to our house and played chess.

They got engaged and here she is at her bridal shower,
with her grandmother and Ryan's grandmothers.
Those are all beautiful women, inside and out.

Here is Laura getting ready to get married...

Here she is with her bridal attendants.
From left: Linh, Julia, Bailey, Laura, Allison, Rachael, Victoria
(The wedding was in June 2010.)

Fast forward a few years...
Here she is with her Ryan and Ransom just last month.
Isn't that a beautiful picture?

Laura, today is YOUR day.
This month is YOUR month.
Well, and this is YOUR year.

Why not celebrate your birthday all year round?


Let's do it.
