Need a Laugh!!

We all need a laugh,
(I know I sure do)
even if it's just to keep us from crying....

Just make a potty run first ;)

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt!

Thank You Tracy!

I was lucky enough to win a contest by Tracy over on Cotton Pickin Cute 
It was sponsored by Freschetta in support of Breast Cancer. 

It arrived today!!!
A coupon for a free Freschetta Pizza and not one,
but two sets pink ear buds!

Thank you so much Tracy for the opportunity!!


Working on More Gifts...shhhh

Creating and finishing Christmas gifts,
 as well as doing the same for the Etsy Shop,
 has me running in circles lately.
Just when I think I've started (and maybe even finished some) projects,
more pop in my head...yes the race is on!

I'm pretty safe showing this one...
C never looks at my blog (here's hoping he doesn't start now)

He loves pocket watches.
My Dad always carried one so I think that's where he gets his fascination for them.
He has started quite a little collection.
He even received a gorgeous engraved one from his counselor
when he graduated from High School.

So what do you make a guy who loves pocket watches???
Need a few thinking caps for this one.

I had this new clock in my Treasure Pile.
 Yes, it was destined for a project but
that was so long ago I've forgotten what it was.
Does this happen to you too?

So I decided to make him a wall clock that resembles a huge pocket watch.

First I dissembled it.

I realized I needed something for the bail and winding knob.

I took apart one of my Dad's old pocket watches and
used the frame for the bail.
Then found a wooden bead that would work for the knob.

I found some gold spray paint in the garage and coated all the parts.
(byw, how do you like my painting booth?)

(my glitter station)

Hey, we are a high class operation here!
But I still can't figure out why it looks like the Glitter Fairy ran through my house? hmm

A little E6000, more gold paint for the black chain and fob
and here we have.....

a wall clock that resembles a pocket watch.
I just hung it on a wall for the photos,
 the chain-clock are not properly spaced,
but you can get the idea.

I added "Newton Clocks" to the face.

Hoping he likes it :)

The others will have to wait until after Christmas
since they come in here from time to time.

But I might be able to give a peek or two.... ;)

I still have more to make,
so off to get busy!

Is the Day OVer yet?

Woke up with a call from the neighbor that the fence was down and she was leaving for work.
We've had strong winds the last few days and it always hits the same section every year.
Guess we're not great fence fixers.

We both have dogs and she was worried.
I guess yesterday when she got home her dogs were out
and a section on the other side was down.

So I get up, throw on some clothes,
head for the kitchen to give meds to my pets only to see an invasion of ants.
OK spray, clean, pill, head outside.

In the meantime, T is looking for wood to secure the fence section.
I thought we still had an iron fence post from the farm so start looking for it.
Eureka! I found it.
I used it to prop up the section.
It is so hard to work on the fence with that wind hitting it
so this metal post will have to hold til the wind dies down.

I come in the house only to see Cyndar crouching in the corner...she's scared of the wind...oy
She will usually hold "it" for days but wasn't able to this time.
OK clean up.

Phone rings.
It's the Optometrist's office wanting to know if C an come in for his appointment today
since they had a cancellation.
Uh no,
Thursdays are counseling days and today is his turn
Time as well as emotionally draining.

He went to get his permit yesterday, passed the written test,
but when he went for the eye exam she had him stand at the corner of two charts.
With the angle he was at he couldn't make out either very well.
She told him he could use either chart...?
He asked to move she said it wasn't necessary.
So that's the reason for the eye check...oy!

So with all that's happened within my first hour of awakening
I thought I, as well as you, could maybe use a little laughter.
I received these from my sister


An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has been broken into. She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher: 'They've stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!' she cried. The dispatcher said, 'Stay calm. An officer is on the way.' A few minutes later, the officer radios in 'Disregard.' He says. 'She got in the back-seat by mistake.'

TELL ME THIS WON'T HAPPEN TO US !!!! Three sisters, ages 92, 94 and 96, live in a house together. One night the 96-year-old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses. She yells to the other sisters, 'Was I getting in or out of the bath?' The

94-year-old yells back, 'I don't know. I'll come up and see.' She starts up the stairs and pauses 'Was I going up the stairs or down?' The 92-year-old was sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters, she shakes her head and says, 'I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood...' She then yells, 'I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door.'


Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were playing golf one fine March day. One remarked to the other, 'Windy, isn't it?' 'No,' the second man replied, 'it's Thursday..' And the third man chimed in, 'So am I. Let's have a beer.'


A little old lady was running up and down the halls in a nursing home. As she walked, she would flip up the hem of her nightgown and say 'Supersex...' She walked up to an elderly man in a wheelchair. Flipping her gown at him, she said, 'Supersex.' He sat silently for a moment or two and finally answered, 'I'll take the soup.'


Now this one is just too Precious...LOL!

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.

One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, 'Now don't get mad at me ... I know we've been friends for a long time, but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is..'

Her friend glared at her for at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, 'How soon do you need to know?'



As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his cell phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, 'Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on Interstate 77. Please be careful!' 'Heck,' said Herman, 'It's not just one car.. It's hundreds of them!'



Two elderly women were out driving in a large car - both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red, but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself 'I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light.'

After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection and the light was red. Again, they went right through. The woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous.

At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was red and they went on through. So she turned to the other woman and said, 'Mildred, did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us both!'

Mildred turned to her and said, 'Oh, crap, am I driving?'


Wishing all a happy day!

One Crazy Bird

Remember the mischief Tilly was getting into the other day?

Well, she didn't stop.

Back on the toters she jumped....

We were both getting frustrated by this time...

She maybe so, more than I...
she copped a little 'tude

and started her bad a$$ dance...

oh yeh, she's a bad one alright....

She kept looking back inside the toter

I thought she just wanted inside to play with the glass vases...
they do make a lovely clink clink with pecked, on after all ;)

After her evil eye I figured I better get her back in her cage.
I happened to look down and saw what she was eyeing.
An empty box.
So I placed it on top of her cage....

After a bit she had shredded most of it...
maybe she was just in a nesting mood.......
or thinking about me as she tore it apart!
