funny friday

And from my Florida friend Patti........

THE TOURIST

An American tourist goes on a trip to China. While in China, he is very sexually promiscuous and does not use a condom all the time.
A week after arriving back home in the States, he wakes one morning to find his penis covered with bright green and purple bumps.
Horrified, he immediately goes to see a doctor. The doctor, never having seen anything like it, orders some tests and tells the man to return in two days.
.
The man returns in a couple of days and the doctor says:

"I've got bad news for you. You've contracted Mongolian VD. It's very rare and almost unheard of here. We know very little about it".
.
The man looks a little perplexed and says:
"Well, give me a shot or something and fix me up, doc".
.
The doctor answers:
"I'm sorry, there's no known cure. We're going to have to amputate your penis".
.
The man screams in horror,
"Absolutely not! I want a second opinion".
.
The doctor replies:

"Well, it's your choice. Go ahead if you want, but surgery is your only choice".
.
The next day, the man seeks out a Chinese doctor, figuring that he'll know more about the disease. The Chinese doctor examines his penis and proclaims:
"Ah, yes, Mongolian VD. Vely lare disease".
.
The guy says to the doctor:
"Yeah, yeah, I know, my American doctor wants to operate and amputate my penis?"
.
"What, cut you dick off "!!! The Chinese doctor shakes his head and laughs:
"Stupid Amelican docta, always want to opelate. Make more money, that way. No need to opelate!".

"Oh, Thank God!", the man replies.
.
"Yes", says the Chinese doctor, "You no worry!
Wait two weeks, fall off by itself!
You save money!"






Have a great weekend!

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas!

The leaves have been late coming down this year. Probably due to our nice warm October. Then November has been wet and cold, with snow on Thanksgiving. So I was wondering if we'd get all the leaves up. But the snow finally melted and the temps stayed in the upper 30's
for a few days. So Craig did the final mowing.
(we don't rake, but have a mulching mower)
And I blew all the leaves off the deck
and outta the mo-ho storage area.
I also cleaned the eave troughs.
And it was barely enough time!
As Craig was finishing the mowing,
it started to snow.

And within an hour,
the ground was covered again.
But we got all the leaves up!
The long term forecast is calling for cold weather,
so we lucked out.
We also have the mo-ho parked for the winter.
We'll keep it plugged in with sonic
pest repelers to see if we can keep the mice out.
We also put in poison bait and spread moth balls in the engine area, all the basement storage, and around the tires.
Boy does that stuff stink!

We also decorated the inside for Christmas,
and cut down our tree.
A number of years ago,
I discovered a tiny evergreen tree
growing in one of my flower beds.
I potted it up and put it in my nursery.
After a couple of years,
we figured it was a spruce,
and planted it in the front side yard,
where it has become 6 ft. tall.
We decided it will not fit there as it gets larger,
so we decided it would be our Christmas tree this year!
Here's a pic with me and the tree.
Once I get it decorated,
I'll take pics of the house and yard.
And remember, click on the pics for a larger view!

Free Rice

I ran across this on my sister's blog.
It's called Free Rice.
Play and feed the hungry.
I checked it out on Snopes and it's legit.
You play a word matching game,
and for every right answer,
they donate 10 grains of rice.
And the game is quite addictive!
The site started October 7th.
with only 830 grains donated.
And as of yesterday.....
3,403,520,350!
You might ask, who pays for the rice?
On each page you play,
there are sponsor ads at the bottom.
They pay to advertise on the pages.
So the more pages you play,
the more money they make to buy the rice!
So click here and play!.....Free Rice
have a little fun......
learn some more words.....
and help feed the hungry!
What could be easier?

funny friday

A guy goes into a supermarket, and while walking down one aisle, a beautiful blonde at the end of the aisle waves at him and says, "Hello".
He's rather taken back, because he can't place where he knows her.
So he says "do you know me?"
To which she replies, "I think you're the father of one of my children."
Now he thinks back to the only time he has ever been unfaithful and says, "My God, are you the stripper from my bachelor party that I laid on the pool table, with all my buddies watching, while your partner whipped me?"
Trying to hold in a laugh, she said, "No, I'm your son's math teacher."

.

And speaking of beautiful blondes............................................

hehehe.....
And for those who have a long holiday weekend, (unlike me who has to work today and tomorrow)...
Have a great weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving


Yep! it snowed last night. The first snow of the season. It doesn't look like Thanksgiving to me!
Hope everyone has a great day!
I plan on watching football,
and getting stuffed!

fall weekend

Good morning all!

It is currently raining and 51 degrees as we head back to work. But we just work a day, and then get tomorrow off. Then work Friday and Saturday and get Sun, Mon, and Tuesday off. I could get use to that.

I went to Muskegon Sunday to see Mom. Took her out for lunch (Red Lobster), and then the club (the VFW) for refreshments and some pull tabs (did lousy). But the weather was good and it was good to see her.

Monday, did some more yard work. Still trying to get the gardens cleaned up for winter. We still have leaves on some trees, so will be another week or so before I can get the rest of the leaves up. The weather has been decent for this time of year. But they're talking snow for Thanksgiving.(yuck!) Below is a pic of three of my Japanese Maples. The closest one is a red Fern Leaf. The one to the far left is a red Bloodgood. And the middle one is a green Fernleaf. I love the colors they turn in fall

Tuesday was the nicest day, (hit 56) so we put up some Christmas lights in the front yard. Will get pics when I think about it. But we won't turn them on till after Thanksgiving. I already see houses with decorations on. Let's get thru one holiday before starting the next. The only reason we put lights up early is I'm not gonna freeze my fingers off putting up lights. And it can turn real cold real quick here in Michigan.


Hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving!

Since I've gotten several requests for the Meatloaf and Turkey Pie recipe. I thought I'd put them in a post.
We try to cook low fat, so these are the healthy versions.

dehydrated onion

1-16oz can of pinto beans(drained and smashed)
2 eggs
large bottle of red wine(whatever you favorite is)

Topping,
I can tomato paste
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 can sliced mushrooms

mix all ingredients in a bowl(except wine and topping), cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Drink a glass of the wine.
In a separate bowl, mix 1 12oz pkg of Kraft free shredded cheddar cheese with enough Egg Beaters to moisten. Drink a glass of wine.
On waxed paper, sprayed with cooking spray, spread the meat mixture out to about 1 inch thick.
Spread cheese over the meat leaving 1 inch from edges.
Roll into a log and put in a casserole dish. Seal the ends by pinching the meat together.
Bake at 350 for an hour and. Have a glass or 2 of wine.
Remove from oven(Careful, it will be hot!)

funny friday

A wealthy hospital benefactor was being shown around the hospital.
During her tour she passed a room where a male patient was masturbating furiously.

"Oh my GOD!" screamed the woman. "That's disgraceful! Why is he doing that?"


The doctor who was leading the tour calmly explained,


"I'm very sorry that you were exposed to that, but this man has a serious condition where his testicles rapidly fill with semen, and if he doesn't do that at least five times a day, he'll be in extreme pain and his testicles could easily rupture."


"Oh, in that case, I guess it's okay," said the woman.
As they passed by the very next room, they saw a male patient laying in bed while a nurse performed oral sex on him.

Again, the woman screamed,

"Oh my GOD! How can THAT be justified?"

Again the doctor spoke very calmly: "Same illness, better health plan."






Have a great weekend!

Let's Eat!

For the most part, our weekend weather sucked!

Sunday and Monday was cold and dreary.
So what's a person to do in that kind of weather?
COOK and EAT!
So on Sunday,
Craig made a meatloaf.
And not just a simple meatloaf,
but a SUPER meatloaf!
Used Lean Ground Beef and Hot Italian Sausage.
Then added, shredded carrots
and shredded zucchini for added fiber and nutrients.
Craig spread the mixture on waxed paper,
and added a cheese filling.
Rolled it up and placed it in a casserole dish.
Baked at 350 for 1 1/4 hrs.
Topped it with a mushroom and tomato paste
glaze for the last 15 minutes,
and a delicious dinner!
YUMMY!












Then...........
on Monday......













Craig fixed an amazing
Turkey Pie!

Started out with lean ground turkey,
added onions,mushrooms

and cream cheese.
spooned it into a casserole dish
pre-lined with a dough crust.
Topped with cottage cheese,
Parmesan cheese, mixed with an egg.
Baked at 350 for an hour.

Then garnished with Green onions,
tomatoes, and shredded cheese, And another Tasty meal!
Now on Tuesday,
the weather turned great!
Mid 60's!
So , we mowed the leaves, (I don't rake!)
put away the temp deck, the gas grill,
and the deck furniture.

We're moving closer toward the long winter!

Here's a pic of fall in the back yard,
and 2 of my Japanese Maples.

Time for bed

Good morning everyone!
We finally put the motor home to bed, so to speak.
Since most parks are now closed for the season,
and the night time temps are going below freezing,
We winterized the mo-ho.
That involves draining the water out of
the tanks and lines,
and pumping in a special RV antifreeze,
to keep the water lines from freezing.
So here's a pic draining the water heater.
Once that's empty, there's a bypass valve
so antifreeze doesn't get in it.
Same with the fresh water tank.
They would be hard to flush all the antifreeze
out in the spring. It takes three gallons to do the job.
You have to make sure all the lines are filled,
and the traps also.



We then took out all the bedding, towels,
DVDs, food from the pantry,
and the dishwasher.
Here's a stock pic of the little
counter top dishwasher Craig talked
me into getting.
I didn't think we needed one,
but Craig wanted it.
And I must say,
I've enjoyed having it.


It's great to be able to do other
things while the dishes are washing.

It's pretty small,
only holds 4 place settings,
but plenty big enough for the two of us.
We have it on a shelf above the washer/dryer.

Then I cleaned the entire inside,
put in sonic pest repelers, and bait.
And we'll park it next to the garage
for the long Michigan winter.
Next up, some more flower pics from the fall garden.
