Those are very clever. Why does one instantly forget them - or is it just me?
BTW You were very much in my thoughts when I wrote my last post. I love the baby too. Michele sent me this time.

Judy,

Along the same lines:

Aaahh....such simple pleasures....when you are an adult, "open mouth, insert foot" means something totally different!

When a person assists a criminal in breaking the law BEFORE the criminal gets arrested, we call him an accomplice.

When a person assists a criminal in breaking the law AFTER the criminal has been arrested, we call him a defense attorney.

This has a delightfully Steven Wright-ish feel to it. I can't stop smiling.

I'm way overdue for my "from-Michele" visit. Blogger was having a bad stretch when I tried last night, so I shut the laptop down and decided to unplug completely for the evening.

It was a nice change from the usual.

Oh These Are All GREAT, Judy! I LOVE THEM!! You always have the BEST "sayings" and Questions....!

It's not too late to join this SIGN Meme today, Judy. I noticed that some people who signed up have not posted yet...! I have to somehow get out and try to get some pictures of SIGNS around town here, without exposing myself to a lot of people...LOL!
Can't wait to see that Sign from Switzerland!

Sonia said...

Just stopping by to say hello and thanks for your visiting.

Flora is SOOO dear sweet with her family... but with unfamiliar people and outside dogs and cats.. Oh My! She is really anti-social! LOL!

These are very amusing adn I think the one about driving is true! However, I am sure my mother would say it was having us kids! LOL!

Michele sent me this time :) I had already commented on your latest post so I came here.

Cute & clever. I've heard that Preparation H is good to use under the eyes. I have never tried it.
As for the Lipton tea workers taking coffee breaks. I think I told you that I don't care for coffee, so I've never taken a coffee break in my life. I know I'm odd for not drinking it, but I don't like the taste.
That baby photo is adorable.
AND the piggy with those puppies is just darling.
