Winter

24 comments:
My husband and I purchased an old home in Northern New York State from two elderly sisters. Winter was fast approaching and I was concerned about the house's lack of insulation. "If they could live here all those years, so can we!" my husband confidently declared.

One November night the temperature plunged to below zero, and we woke up to find interior walls covered with frost. My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm.

It's time to play The Story Game again. Here's how it works. I'll start a story. You continue it in comments. Each commenter picks up where the last left off. In a few days I'll give it an ending and post our story with the links to everyone who participated under the heading, "Contributing Authors". You can play as many times as you want. If someone derails the story will one of you put it back on track? Thanks for playing along and have a great day.

Aging: eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Babs of Beetle's Memories & Ramblings sent me this photograph some time back and I stored it away for a day that I just needed a break.

This is the day I need a break. This did crack me up too.

After getting some great music from Grace of Dragon's Alley from the 50s and 60s. Then it was this post from Sarge Charlie and this post from Empress Bee that really got me to thinking about the 60s. I decided to take a look at the 60s in the good old U.S of A.

Boasting Boys

Three boys are in the schoolyard bragging about their fathers. The first boy says, "My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a poem, they give him $50."

The second boy says, "That's nothing. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him $100."

Thank You Grace

16 comments:
Earlier this month Grace of Dragon's Alley had a contest. In her post titled, Let's Have Some Fun we were to guess what her favorite music is and I decided to play along. I knew that Grace loves all music, but she really loves opera so that was my guess. Well I won a CD and it arrived on Saturday. Thank you for putting together 31 really great songs.

Comment Game

25 comments:
It's time to play the comment game again. We are on our boat, but that's no surprise to anyone.

Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks.

The Confessional

A guy goes into the confessional box. He finds on one wall a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap. On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest Cuban cigars. Then the priest comes in.

"Father, forgive me, for it's been a long time since I've been to confession, but I must first say that the confessional box is much more inviting these days."

A Scare

Have you ever lost your blog? You didn't delete it but it just disappeared. That's what happened to me Wednesday morning. First I got an email from my pal Barb at iPhoneographi asking me if I'd sent a particular email. I told her that I hadn't sent that email and she responded by telling me that my email account had been hacked. Sure enough it had.

Messed Up!

The following is an ad from a real-life newspaper which appeared four days in a row - the last three hopelessly trying to correct the first day's mistake.

MONDAY: "For sale: R. D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Phone 948-0707 after 7 P. M. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives with him cheap."
