One evening a husband, thinking he was being funny, said to his wife, 'Perhaps we should start washing your clothes in 'Slim Fast'. Maybe it would take a few inches off of your butt!'
His wife was not amused, and decided that she simply couldn't let such a comment go unrewarded.
The next morning the husband took a pair of underwear out of his drawer. 'What the heck is this?' he said to himself as a little 'dust' cloud appeared when he shook them out.
'April', he hollered , 'Why did you put talcum powder in my underwear?'
She replied with a snicker. 'It's not talcum powder; it's 'Miracle Grow'!!!!!

If anyone of you has a cat or two - you know this is true. I love cats. I have always loved cats since I was young. I think they are beautiful and graceful animals (except in the middle of the night when they play with each other and 3 cats suddenly sounds like a heard of elephants upstairs). I know many people who don't care for cats because they have an attitude. They simply will not be told what to do and if you don't like it - it's your problem (not theirs) and you will find a way to deal with it. So, I just overlook the fact that they aren't going to do what I want them to do when I want them to do it and we get along just fine. I find them to be fun and loving creatures. I never met a cat that wasn't a character in some way. Most people who know me know about my love of cats, so I get lots of cat related e-mails. Someone sent me all of these pictures not long ago - some I had seen before others are new - hope they brighten your day like they did mine!

I have shared before my love of yard sales. I can't wait for yard sale season to start again. But in the meantime I visit Thrift Stores in order to get my fix of aquiring other peoples unwanted junk. Not long ago I was in one of my favorite stores and spotted this little gem.:
How cute is this??? The funny part (or maybe not - perhaps it's a sign that I need a 12 step program) I have NO idea what I am going to do with it. I just had to buy it. But it's great - I love the bright colors. It is all handmade -the little appliques were sewn on by hand - the quilting is hand done - it's brand new. It makes me wonder, someone put all that work into it and then it never got used - that is very sad. So while I was feeling sorry for this little quilt it just jumped out and landed in my shopping cart somehow. The best part was that I only paid $5.00 for it. So now what to do with it - I could sell it, I could give it away as a gift, or I might have a need for it sometime - there will be kids (or grandkids) coming along in the family one of these days. I just love finding things like this.
