Making Up For The Lazy Weekend

Today will be busy catching up and shoveling out the house now that the girls went off rather reluctantly to school.

I have a living room full of leaves. We have no easy back door access so in and out the front they all troop bringing more leaves each time. I didn't even try yesterday; I would have been bailing the Pacific with a teaspoon. Ray is sweeping, I'm laundering and cleaning surfaces.

And stopping to check on my friends inside the computer of course.

In case I don't get back later, here's a joke I just swiped from Merle in Australia. Since we share some visitors, some of you will have seen it but I couldn't resist sharing.

We’re getting a divorce.

On December 23rd an old man in Melbourne calls his son in Brisbane and says, " I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough."

"Dad, what are you talking about? " , the son screams.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father said."We're sick and tired of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Perth and tell her." And he hangs up.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone, ' like hell they're getting a divorce," she shouts, " I'll take care of this."

She calls Melbourne immediately, and screams at the father, "YOU ARE NOT GETTING DIVORCED! Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, Don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and she hangs up.

The father hangs up the phone and turns to his wife. " Okay," he says, "they're coming for Christmas and paying their own way."

Ha ha ha. So true! Actually, not really true, as we've all been paying our own way since leaving home. Still...that's funny.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving there, Ann. We're snowed in here, today, as you saw from the pictures. It's glorious. And yes, I adore the snow and cold weather.

I like this one. Thanks for sharing it! I had a good lazy day but we can always do with a good laugh!

Paying my way, but not headed in that direction! Funny story.

What a great joke! I loved that one!

Love the joke! I will have to remember it and try it on our kids in 10 years or so!
Trying to clean while children are growing is like trying to shovel the walk while it is still snowing. Futile.
