Just a short post today, as I need to get some shopping in before the stores get too crowded, and then I hope to get on with the make over of the little chest of drawers in the hall.
Yesterday I visited my friend Inge, who had a nasty fall while on a bus this week, so we had a nice day together, playing cards, eating and drinking coffee as always. I even found a parking space directly in front of our house when I came back, a very small one, but as my car is small, it just fitted in.
I didn't do much in the way of crafting or scrapping yesterday, but I did manage a double page in my new journal. As I outed myself this week as being someone who doesn't like tea - perhaps the reason why I left England and went into banishment! - I decided to journal about coffee. I doodled the pictures while watching TV, and distressed the pages with some inks in antique linen and brushed corduroy afterwards. The poem on the right side was written earlier this year.
And as it is Saturday, something to laugh from my friend Narda:
You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish . . .
I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger . . . then it hit me . . .
To write with a broken pencil is . . . pointless.
When fish are in schools they sometimes . . . take debate.
A thief who stole a calendar . . . got twelve months.
When the smog lifts in Los Angeles . . . U.C.L.A.
The professor discovered that her theory of earthquakes . . . was on shaky ground.
The batteries were given out . . . free of charge.
A dentist and a manicurist married. . . . They fought tooth and nail.
A will is a . . . dead giveaway.
If you don't pay your exorcist . . . you can get repossessed.
With her marriage, she got a new name . . . and a dress.
Show me a piano falling down a mineshaft and I'll show you . . . A-flat miner.
You are stuck with your debt if . . . you can't budge it.
Local Area Network in Australia . . . The LAN down under.
A boiled egg is . . . hard to beat.
When you've seen one shopping center . . . you've seen a mall.
Police were called to a day care where a three-year-old was . . . resisting a rest.
Did you hear about the fellow whose whole left side was cut off? . . . He's all right now.
If you take a laptop computer for a run you could . . . jog your memory.
A bicycle can't stand alone . . . it is two tired.
In a democracy it's your vote that counts; in feudalism . . . it's your Count that votes.
When a clock is hungry . . . it goes back four seconds.
The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine . . . was fully recovered.
He had a photographic memory . . . which was never developed.
Those who get too big for their britches will be . . . exposed in the end.
When she saw her first strands of gray hair . . . she thought she'd dye.
Acupuncture . . . a jab well done.
Have a nice Saturday you all, take care and thanks for visiting!
