Feeling Old...

Last weekend my family went to Memphis (about 2 hours from where I live) and had a great time. We had some really great barbeque at a place called "Corky's". As we were sitting there waiting for our names to be called, we began looking at all of the celebrities who had eaten there. Looking at a picture of Elvis Presley on the wall, my nine year old son says, "Hey! Wasn't that guy a rock star in the Nineteen Hundreds!?" Uhhhh..... yeah!

Monday Memories - Cupping

I have a friend, and she is actually better friends with my sister, that is so fun to be around. I don't know how she is so creative, but she has the funniest ideas. I have to tell you about something she used to do on a regular basis. It's called "cupping". Start by buying a drink somewhere and drinking it ("hey, I think I can handle this so far!) Then you take your empty cup and place a few industrial strength magnets in it. Then you glue the lid and straw back on the top. Then you stick it to the roof of your car. The point of the game is to see how many people you can get to flag you down and tell you that your cup in on top of your car! When they flag you down, act unknowing about the cup and then express how grateful you are for their help. Take the cup down, wait a minute or two until that person is out of sight, and then put it up again. This is a "win-win" game. You get all the laughs and others feel good about themselves for doing a good deed for the day!! I think this game would also work with a car seat and a life size doll.

Looking for a Reason to Laugh....

I have been without a computer or the internet for pretty much a year and a half now, and just haven't found time to go somewhere else and post to the humor blog! I am ready to come back - and hope anyone is still interested in laughing. Do you all need to laugh more - 'cause I know I do! I am going to try harder to post to the blog, while catching up on my family blog as well. I was just looking over my blogs and remembering how much I loved to blog. I had forgotten how much I love to blog - and how fun it is to view later and remember these things. So, check back for humor. Also, if you want to contribute to this blog, I can put you on as a writer so it can be a group thing - just let me know.
