Friday Funny

Okay, I know it's technically Saturday, but you don't have to read if you don't want to.
Here are a few funnies shared today on CPS.
And please don't take these as anything more than good fun.

One year I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift...
The next year I didn't buy her a gift.
When she asked me why, I replied,
"Well you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"
And that's how the fight started.

I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary.
It warmed my heart to see her face melt in appreciation.
"Somewhere I haven't been in a long time," she said.
So I suggested, "How about the kitchen?"
And that's how the fight started.

My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion.
She kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat at an empty table.
I asked her, "Do you know him?"
"Yes," she sighed.
"He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we split all those many years ago. And I hear he hasn't been sober since."
"Oh my!" I said. "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"
And that's how the fight started.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Some random nothings

I attempted my first solo haircut tonight. I've shaved my head before, but this was an actual style. I thought it turned out great........ that was until a few hours later when I ran my fingers along the back of my head and felt a strip of uncut hair. Made me laugh.

I scored a 2010 Mustang convertible, free of charge, for the wedding I was in a few weeks back. Yeah, I might be the best, "Best Man" ever.

I took a couple weeks off from working out due to the wedding and such, and today was my first day back in the gym. It felt so good to work up a sweat again. I was holding at forty pounds lost and I hope to lose another twenty five by Christmas.

I get to cut down a couple trees this weekend. I do enjoy using a chainsaw. (said the one legged man)

It looks like my canal thru-hike is on for March of next year. And it looks like a friend of mine has signed on to join me for the two week expedition.

I worked at a local festival this weekend in two different historical society venues. Nothing like immersing yourself in history for ten hours a day two days in a row.

I'm watching the new show, Parenthood on NBC as I type this. Is it weird this is my favorite new show on TV and I don't have any kids?

I need to sign off and fold some laundry.

That's how much you can buy a brand new toilet for. Seriously.

While the rest of my life seems to be unravelling, my toilet decided to take a shit as well. (See what I did there?) So I headed to the Home store this morning to buy the parts to fix it. I grabbed a repair kit and saw a price of 21.something. Across the aisle I saw a huge sign advertising a Labor Day toilet sale with a bright orange $70 underneath it. After I laughed at the thought of Labor Day being the, replace-your-toilet-holiday, I started to re-evaluate my options. Of course replacing a toilet is much more involved and more expensive than the seventy dollar price tag would belie, so I went with the repair kit. But it does give me a better idea on budgeting for a bathroom redo. Maybe this winter.
