Happy Friday!



Getting a hairdryer through customs...

A distinguished young woman on a flight from Ireland
asked the Priest
beside her, 'Father, may I ask a favour?'

'Of course, child. What may I do for you?'

'Well, I bought an expensive woman's
electronic hair dryer for my
mother's birthday that is unopened and well over
the Customs limits,
and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there
any way you could carry
it through customs for me? Under your robes
perhaps?'

'I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn
you: I will not lie.'

'With your honest face, Father, no one will
question you.'

When they got to Customs, she let the priest go ahead
of her.
The official asked, 'Father, do you have anything
to declare?'

'From the top of my head down to my waist, I have
nothing to declare.'

The official thought this answer strange, so asked,
'And what do you
have to declare from your waist to the floor?'

'I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used
on a woman, but
which is, to date, unused.'

Roaring with laughter, the o fficial said, 'Go
ahead, Father. Next!'

Potato salad

I love potato salads. This one I might have to make for the 4th!

I'll have to change the white potatoes for red!









Bacon Potato Salad recipe.

Prep: 15 min., Cook: 18 min., Chill: 1 hr. Round white potatoes work well in this recipe. To lighten, use light mayonnaise and sour cream. To make ahead, peel and cut potatoes the night before, cover with water, and chill.

Yield: Makes 6 servings
Ingredients
6 to 8 medium potatoes (about 3 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
6 green onions, chopped
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
2 tablespoons diced pimiento, drained
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
Garnishes: paprika, celery sticks
Preparation
Cook potatoes in boiling water to cover in a Dutch oven over medium heat 15 to 18 minutes or until tender. Drain and let cool slightly.

Place potatoes in a large bowl. Add bacon, chopped green onions, and next 4 ingredients. Stir together mayonnaise and sour cream until blended. Pour over potato mixture, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Garnish, if desired.

Excellent Find

Pretty, isn't it?


I found this Paula Deen 7 quart porcelain enamel cast iron pot, tucked away on a shelf at a JC Penny outlet. Paid $40.00 for it. Looked it up on their website and it's $109.00. Who can pass that up?

Our results from the stager!



As some of you know, we are selling our house. Our realtor had a professional stager come in and go through our house. I know they are trying to help....... but we do have to live here!

So far.... She doesn't like my red bathroom, my curtains (don't know in which rooms), the hutch in the kitchen, my grandfather clock in my dining room, the bookcase in the living room, the family pictures in the stairwell (yes, I know you should remove them, I did that in our last house we sold) and the chairs at the end of my bed. But she like my paint colors through out the houses I forgot to mention that they didn't like my husbands roll-top computer desk in the living room (husband is a professional computer programmer. You don't tell one of those that he has to get rid of or move his computer desk and still get your iPad when it comes out).
She also thinks I should pack away more of my crap. She doesn't know how much crap I did pack away!

I wonder what she is going to say about my big old 27 inch mac on my desk in the craft room (which is no longer a craft room, but an office for me. All of the craft has been packed away.)

I say if they want to buy the house then they won't care about all that other crap!

We do have to live here with 3 kids who make a mess every 5 seconds, 3 dogs, 2 birds and a ferret. Don't forget the husband who believes in cleaning fairies.........

The house hunt on the other side...... We made an offer on a house that has been on the market for 2 years. They don't like it, so we will probably move on to another house. I am thinking of a 5 bedroom with 3900 square feet. That is going to be fun to clean! But, my goal is to get lost in the house and not be found for at least 10 minutes!
We all have our dreams....... That's mine!

Tuesday

I am finally up and running again!

Spoiled? Oh, YEA!

I got this from my mother in-law!




ACTUAL

AUSTRALIAN COURTDOCKET 12659---CASE OF THE


PREGNANT LADY



A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed


the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to


another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. The


man seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out


laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.



The case came up in court.



The judge asked the man (about 20 years old) what he had


to say for himself. The man replied, 'Well your Honor, it was like this,



when the lady got on the bus, I couldn't help but notice her condition.


She sat down under a sign that said, 'The Double Mint Twins are coming'


and I grinned. Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, ' Logan's



Liniment will reduce the swelling,' and I had to smile. Then she placed


herself under a deodorant sign that said, 'William's Big Stick Did the


Trick,' and I could hardly contain myself. But, Your Honor, when She


moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that said, 'Goodyear Rubber


could have prevented this Accident'... I just lost it.'



'CASE DISMISSED!!'



Now keep that smile on your face and pass it on to


someone else!!

Remember when .....

I was so excited about all of my estate and thrift store finds?

I'm not so excited anymore!

It's not nice to have your friend who is laughing at you and your crap, sorry I meant treasures, helping you pack!

We all know how much I like my nic nacs, but people who come through your house to look at it don't want to see it your treasures.




Next house? I am not moving for the next 10-15 years!
