The funny for the day.....the lizard

This afternoon husband and I were in the Florida room when I saw a lizard.  It was between the outer screen and the inside window.  Husband said there was no lizard.  I said yes and made him take off the inside window.  The lizard disappeared so I went to take the laundry out of the washing machine.  While I was taking the laundry out I felt little prickles on my bare leg.  (I was wearing capris) and when I looked down there was the lizard just clinging to my leg.  The lizard was about 7 inches long.  It was like now what.  I knew I had to get him outside so I just walked very slow and when I got outside he jumped off and ran away.

The funny for the day.....weird signs

Weird signs for the day....while out running errands today I saw 2 weird signs on vehicles that were driving down the road.  The first one was on a old and I do mean old pickup truck.  On the back gate there was a cardboard sign that read...cabbage for sale, honk and I will stop.   The other one was on a bright purple car.  On the back window there were 4 silhouettes of a naked women.  Written across the window was..."you just passed a girl and what".   Now that is all it said, so what does and what mean?   Does it mean something like what the truck said and honk and I will stop.  Does it mean instead of cabbage you get and what?

White Christmas so many years ago

Tonight is Christmas Eve and I decided to write a Christmas story.  After alot of thought as to what to write here is my story.  During WWII my Aunt Mildred was in the Navy and stationed in the Pacific.   She was not going to be home for Christmas and had not been home for sometime.  After mom passed I was going through a box and I came across the sheet music for Irving Berlin's White Christmas.  My aunt had sent it to my mom for Christmas.   On the cover of the sheet music my aunt wrote...I will be dreaming of a White Christmas and I wish I was there with you now.  So to all of my family and friends both near and far,  I wish you a Merry Christmas and hope you have a White Christmas.   Also to our servicemen and women not at home with us now, let us give thanks and hope to see you soon.

The funny for the day....the wild blue haired lady

The wild blue haired lady.....  It didn't take long to have a new blue haired lady story.  This story is about my new next door neighbor.  I haven't met her yet but people across the street told me all about her.   First of all she had a live-in boyfriend with a motorcycle. (gasp)...I guess he had enough of her so he packed all of his stuff and left last monday.  (First it was thrown on the front lawn, then packed)  Now she is not short on gentleman callers.  Apparently there is alot of gentleman callers.   This woman is also a drunk.   A couple of weeks ago when she was drunk,  as she backed out of the driveway she ran over the neighbors mailbox and flattened it.  She also took the corner too fast and flattened the stop sign.  The stop sign is still on the ground.  So in less than a block she smashed the front and the back end of her car.    We also have retention ponds here (no water in them, they are used to catch the rain wash off).  She has put her car in the retention pond 4 times and had to be towed out.  Also in the last month she has called for the rescue squad 4 times.  As I was told every time she does something stupid she calls the rescue squad.  Apparently  I have missed alot in the last month.  The woman does not have a car now for obvious reasons.    Since we do have a strick home owners association and she is only a renter,  I suspect she will be gone soon.
