It was a dark and stormy afternoon~

Thank you all for sharing jokes with me. I hope they brightened up your day too. I loved them all but of course, only 1 can win. The winner will win…..THIS:


A good prize if ever I've seen one! (Myron says: "I don't pee on the furniture or floor anymore! I am a good catch if I do say so myself!")

He’ll be arriving on Dene’s doorstep soon! Watch for the jumping box, Dene! I’ll include some food and a couple of mousies! I’m sure Myron will fit right in with her cuties, Nikki and Andi!

Dene’s joke?

What does Kermit the Frog and John the Baptist have in common?


Their middle name.

So simple in it’s simplicity!


Now? For a wee bit of random!

  1. It is raining harder than I’ve seen it rain in a long time. Bring on those May flowers!
  2. I had to buy some pansies in a hanging pot to put on the porch. I had enough of no color outside. I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to see color out. Side.
  3. We are having french toast for dinner. Every now and then I love to have breakfast for dinner!
  4. I have been “finishing” the dimorphous mittens for about 2 weeks not. Perhaps tonight will be the night?
  5. Just when I have accepted having to wear cheater glasses to be able to do something silly like, you know….READ, I start to break out along the bridge of my nose because of wearing said glasses. I’m sure you will agree that it is NOT fair at all.
  6. Mitchell loves to eat animal crackers. I have to imagine that he is imagining a world where he can actually eat Myron.
  7. I am Diet Croak free for 2 weeks now.
  8. Oh, and Myron really is NOT the prize. Just in case you think I may be mailing him off.

  1. I am so proud of you!

    Now I want french toast. /sigh

  2. I’m a sucker for blue-eyed kitties so Myron come on down to Texas! You can be friends with Nikki, Tia, Andi, Starkitty and Tweety 🙂 Oh and CurleyDog and my grandpuppy Maynard that is over 85 pounds of lab/Great Dane puppy. I have a nice bed you can hide under.

    But we all know that momma Sandy can’t give you up 🙂 Be nice to Mitchell .. ya hear?

    🙂 Dene

    Oh, and here I was thinking how glad I was not to have won! My dog and Myron would not be good together. But I did love your April Fool’s prize!

  4. Hey the rain has stopped! Now the fog is rolling in–again.

    I’m so glad Myron has stopped peeing on the floor. Do he and Mitchell each still have their own territory?

    I have just bought beautiful blue pansies for my porch and yellow daffodils for my bathroom because I need color both inside and out right about now!

  5. Miss Sandy…I miss you, that’s all.

  6. OMG, I always KNEW fountain D.C. tasted different (and better, IMO) than bottled or canned. In that Wiki article, it says fountain still has saccharine in it for longer shelf life. Huh? I’m so glad we’re FREE. Honestly, I noticeably felt BETTER today. I’m sure it’s because of that.

    I like Dene’s joke!!! And I’m still reserving judgment on Myron. Hee. 😀

  7. I just heard that joke today!!! I love it.

    We have breakfast-for-dinner nights sometimes, too … but in our case the main course is usually waffles. With bacon and sausage and whipped cream and jam and syrup … there’s nothing low-fat about breakfast-for-dinner.

  8. Just wanted to say AWESOME JOB ON THE NO D.C.! Its hard to make changes like that, and you are kicking butt.

  9. You’re giving Myron away? Really?

    I of course missed the jokefest, so here are 2 for you:

    This macho playboy drives his Maserati over a cliff and wakes up to find himself surrounded by fiery pits, steaming cauldrons, the whole nine yards. “Oh, no,” he moans, “I’m in Hell!”
    “Now, now,” says a large but friendly nearby demon consolingly, “Hell really isn’t so bad. Take Mondays, for example. Tell me, did you smoke on Earth?”
    “Well, yeah, um, I kept trying to quit…”
    “You’re gonna love Mondays. We have pipes, cigars, cigarettes, all with the finest tobacco, and you’ll never get jittery, and you don’t have to worry about emphysema or cancer or anything because you’re already dead, right?”
    “Um, right,” says the playboy. “But what happens the rest of the time?”
    “Tell me,” says the demon, “did you drink on Earth?”
    “Um, yeah…”
    “Wait till you see what Tuesdays are like. We have all the best beers and wines, vodka, rum, tequila, gin, you name it, any mixed drink you can imagine, and you never get sick or hung over, and you never have to worry about cirrhosis or heart disease, because you’re already dead.”
    “What about Wednesdays?”
    “Did you do drugs on Earth?”
    “Uh, yeah, sometimes…”
    “We have every drug you could possibly think of, the old standards like marijuana, LSD, heroin, and some new designer drugs that’ll knock your socks off, and you’ll never get strung out or crash, and you don’t have to worry about overdosing because…”
    “Yeah, yeah, I’m already dead. So what do you do on Thursdays?”
    “Ah, Thursdays! Thursday is my favorite day. Tell me, were you gay on Earth?”
    “Certainly not!”
    “Oh. Well… you may not care too much for Thursdays.”

    And a riddle: April showers bring May flowers; what do May flowers bring?

    (I heard the second one (mumble) years ago, so apologies if you know it already.)
