Friday Is Party Time, So Fare Thee Well And Exactly Who Is Polly Wolly Doodle?

Friday means Happy Hour so you know I'm hooking up with my pals in AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe and Pub ! I was going to Louisiana for to see my Susie Anna, but that's a long way to drive and I divorced Susie years ago. It was probably because of that Polly Wolly Doodle chick. I always had a wandering eye anyway.

I enjoy questions that give me the opportunity to answer with a quip and I'm always amused with reaction to my answer. I was asked recently. "Do you have an extra cigarette?" I said, "No, there's only twenty in this package." The look on my friends face was somewhat similar to that look I get from Shithead (my cat) when I asked him a question. The list goes on an on, to wit: Entering my house: "Are you home from work?" (No, I'm still at my office). Entering a restaurant: "Two for dinner?" (No, 47 for breakfast). Phone call at 4:00 am: "Did I wake you up? (No, I had to get up to answer the phone anyway). Ya gotta love it !

The Pictures: I received a very nice slide show today and I copied some of the pictures so you can see them. They're wallpaper quality and I hope you enjoy them.

That's it for today, my little pedal pushers. More tomorrow.

 I loved your quips,  My MIL calls and when I answer, are you home?  No I reply, this is a recording.  Oh she said and hung up!  Love the pictures.

I ask Doc if today is Thursday, his reply is all day. Gotta love the puns. The pictures today are hauntingly beautiful. When I was younger the guy that worked the farm down the road used to take out our fence all the time with his tractor watching me. Years later he did the same thing with my younger sister.
