Chuckles and Chortles

Happy new week, blogging pals. How is everyone? What did you do this weekend? We split our weekend in half. 50% hard work inside the house. 50% fun outside the house. Yesterday we took care of some chores but Saturday we were out and about. We drove to our hometown, stopped at IKEA to snoop around, surprised my mom with an unexpected visit and then went out for dinner before we headed back home. I tell you, we are just loving our new location with easy access to everyone we love most in this world.

Enough about me. Feel free to share your weekend stories below. And I will now share some funny stuff to get you chuckling and chortling.







Wishing you all a great week!

  4. It's so good to hear that you are enjoying your new home so much!

    Great cartoons. I might print the towel one and post it in our bathroom just to tease Frank tonight.

    We both caught a bad cold from hanging out with our great-granddaughter when she was sick. So we sat in our chairs, in cold medicine induced comas for a Netflix marathon. I did, however, make the best pot of Beef Pho soup yesterday!

    1. If you're going to catch a cold, you may as well catch it from someone you love! I hope you're feeling much better.

  6. I spent most of the weekend editing. It felt good to accomplish so much. Why don't men know which towels to use? If we had a messy spill, my ex-husband would always manage to grab the nicest towels we had so he could ruin them. On the other hand, one time my son cut his hand pretty badly and X picked up a filthy rag to put around the wound. Clean towels and fresh paper towels were right there, but no, he had to find something laden with bacteria.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. HAHAHA! I had a good laugh with this, Janie. I have no idea why men don't know which towels to use. It's one of those mysteries of life :)

  11. Sounds as if you had a great weekend ...

    We were out and about in the gorgeous countryside enjoying Spring like weather.
    Among other things, we saw a windmill and watermill and the hedgerows were just amazing.

    I hope this week goes well for you.
    Thanks for the chuckles

    Take Care

    All the best Jan

  12. Don't know if you can relate to this but the cartoon with the cows made me think of The Friendly Giant where the cow jumps over the moon in the opening (or closing?) of the show. -Jenn

    1. OHMYGOSH...of course! I LOVED The Friendly Giant. I never missed it. And I still feel my heart being squeezed when I think about that show. It was the best.

  13. The peeping Tom was a sneaky one. You have to look hard sometimes.

    1. It is! It took me some time to figure it out. And then I laughed out loud!

  14. You are lucky you got to go to IKEA. I get there every few years, the closest is almost 2 hours away. Cute cartoons :) I like the crash dummies :)

    1. The closest one used to be about 2 hours away when we lived in Kingston. Now we have two stores within an hour's drive, which is great.

  17. Some of those jokes are a bit realistic (e.g., the marriage counselor). That peeping Tom is creepy and made me laugh. Thanks, Martha.
    Have a great week in your new home.
