Monday funny

The Department of Defense briefed President Bush this morning. They told Bush that 2 Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq. To everyone’s surprise, all the color drained from his face. Then he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears. Finally he composed himself and asked, “Just how many is a brazilian?”


Hope you’re having a nice day! 🙂

This is a good lesson in not judging a book by it’s cover.

And for everyone else who lives outside Texas, this is for you. (All in good fun of course)

There aren’t enough words


Here in this garden of stone we’re all reminded that freedom really isn’t free.  Before America was even a country there were those brave and courageous enough to stand up and say no to oppression. Everyday men and women put their lives on the line so we can spout off at the mouth. Military suicides are up at an alarming rate. The burden these men carry is enormous and war is hell. Be sure to thank those who serve us and our great country.

Blonde jokes!

As a natural blonde I’ve learned to appreciate blonde jokes and not get in a snit. Here are a few my dear m-i-l sent me. My favorite is the first one.

Two blondes living in Oklahoma were sitting on a bench talking, and one  blonde says to the other, ‘Which do you think is farther away…
or the moon?’   
The other blonde turns and says ‘Helloooooooooo, can you see
Florida ?????’  
 A blonde pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the mechanic it died.   
After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smoothly.   
She says, ‘What’s the story?’    
He replies, ‘Just crap in the carburetor’     
She asks, ‘How often do I have to do that?’     
A police officer stops a blonde for speeding and asks her very nicely if he could see her license.
She replied in a huff, ‘I wish you guys would get your act together. Just yesterday you take away my license and then today you expect me
to show it to you!’  
There’s this blonde out for a walk. She comes to a river and sees another blonde on the opposite bank. ‘Yoo-hoo!’ she shouts, ‘How can I
get to the other side?’   
The second blonde looks up the river then down the river and shouts back, ‘You  ARE on the other side.’      
A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor’s office and said that her body hurt wherever she touched it.  
‘Impossible! ‘ says the doctor. ‘Show me.’  
The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left shoulder and screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed even more. She pushed
her knee and screamed;  likewise she pushed her ankle and screamed. Everywhere she touched made her scream.  
The doctor said, ‘You’re not really a redhead, are you?  
‘Well, no’ she said, ‘I’m actually a blonde.’  
‘I thought so,’ the doctor said. ‘Your finger is broken.’  
A highway patrolmanpulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind the
wheel was knitting!   
Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, ‘PULL
‘NO!’ the blonde yelled back, ‘IT’S A SCARF!’      
A Russian, an American, and a Blonde were talking one day. The Russian said, ‘We were the first in space!’  
The American said, ‘We were the first on the moon!’  
The Blonde said, ‘So what? We’re going to be the first on the sun!’  
The Russian and the American looked at each other and shook their heads.  ‘You can’t land on the sun, you idiot! You’ll burn up!’
said the Russian.
To which the Blonde replied, ‘We’re not stupid, you know. We’re going at night!’
 A blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one night. It was her turn. She rolled the dice and she landed on Science & Nature. Her
question was, ‘If you are in a vacuum and someone calls your name, can you hear it?’  
She thought for a time and then asked, ‘Is it on or off?’  
A girl was visiting her blonde friend, who had acquired two new dogs, and asked her what their names were. The blonde
responded by saying that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex.   Her friend said, ‘Whoever heard of someone
naming dogs like that?’    
‘HELLLOOOOOOO. …..,’ answered the blond.  ‘They’re watch dogs!’

Dear Mr. Dirty Old Black Man

As I was leaving the inside of Wendy’s you felt the need to tell me how nice my round ass was. I would say I was flattered but you are older than my dad and that’s saying a lot. He’s 80. I will say thank you though for appreciating a round rear and not a flat one. But that’s about it for my happy thoughts about you.  I was a little grossed out because you are way old and I got even more grossed out as you leered at me. Being a fine southern woman all I said was thank you but I assure you I was vomiting on the inside. While I love men, younger and older, I do have my limits. I wasn’t aware of said limits until I had my experience with you. I hope you have a nice longer life, but when I woman is young enough to be your granddaughter you should keep your thoughts to yourself.

Thank you. 🙂

When it rains it poors

This is a whiny, poor pitiful me post so if you want to stop now I don’t blame you. You’ve been warned.

Happy go lucky Raga is gone. I’ve been beaten down by all the garbage of life and small minded people. Now I’m mopey needy Raga. Why? I’m sick. Yippie. To top that off the Allstate saga is still ongoing. Big shocker, no? Now I have to drop $500.00 on my car so that it will move. I’m not sure what the parts are called but basically something is wrong that makes my engine want to go and my brakes want to brake at the same time. With me so far? If not, blame the Benadryl. It’s just as good as being drunk. 😉 Anyway. So they have to replace some parts and then there’s labor and all that good stuff. At least I’ll get it back today. That’s a bonus, right? Also something is turning blue due to the heat this problem is causing. I want to say it’s a roater, (I think I spelled that wrong), that’s turning blue but I honestly have no idea. Being a grown up sucks. At least I’ve got DarcsFalcon and J.R. cracking me up. 🙂

    Recovering from Ike

    Well we just got power back after we lost it Friday night. We have a tree on our roof still and that will be there for a while and our fence is gone. We are very, very lucky. we are all alive and so is everyone I know. We all have our homes. Now that I’m finally able to see the devastation Ike caused all I can do it sit in disbelief.

    I’ve seen some amazing things these past few days. Strangers helping each other, people still being polite and showing kindness. I would also like to mention the wonderful people I spoke with from Allstate. Not only are they doing everything they can to get to us but there was a wonderful woman that stayed on the phone with me when I unexpectedly just broke and started bawling. Even though she didn’t need to, she stayed on the phone with me until I was calm enough to face my girls.

    I would also like to send a special thank you to Vanessa  and Dane. Without them I don’t know what we would have done. They were a rock for my family and showed the true and definite meaning of love and friendship. They gave us priceless information and support these last few days. Even in the days before the storm. Thank God for them. I love you both and I would be a shivering ball of broken nerves without you.

    And last but so not least. I would like to thank all the men and women from here and around the country that have done an amazing job getting power back to Texas. We would be lost without you. Also the police and fire departments who put their live on the line to make sure we were safe. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    Lots of love for everyone,
