Blowing Wind Firday, Sunny Calm Saturday

Good Saturday morning friends. Yesterday was an interesting one with 40 to 50 mph winds. Gerry & I went to Golftown. I needed to buy a few things that I needed and when we left the building I almost got blown off the sidewalk. Thank goodness my car was right there but Gerry had to help me to get into my car. After he and I went to Riccardo's Italian Eatery in Amherstburg for lunch. That was difficult to get to because Riccardo's is right near the river. He & I enjoyed our lunch and after I brought my friend home and I stayed there until now.
Today is much better and after I'm finished with my blog, I heading off to hit some golf balls.

Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman

Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman were having coffee when one of the Catholic men tells his friends, "My son is a priest, when he walks into a room, everyone calls him 'Father'."
The second Catholic man chirps, "My son is a Bishop. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Grace'."
The third Catholic gent says, "My son is a Cardinal. When he enters a room everyone says 'Your Eminence'."
The fourth Catholic man then says, "My son is the Pope. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Holiness'."
Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in silence, the four men give her a subtle, "Well....?"
She proudly replies, "I have a daughter, slim, tall, 38D breast, 24" waist and 34" hips. When she walks into a room, people say, "Oh - My - God."


Extra Effort Award

I was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in the week. Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor's office to tell me that I had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30 a.m.
I had only just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around 8:45 am. The trip to his office took about 35 minutes, so I didn't have any time to spare.
As most women do, I like to take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits, but this time I wasn't going to be able to make the full effort.
So, I rushed upstairs, threw off my pajamas, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in "THAT AREA" to make sure I was at least presentable. I threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment.
I was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when I was called in. Knowing the procedure, as I'm sure you do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that I was in Paris or some other place a million miles away. I was a little surprised when the doctor said, "My, we have made an extra effort this morning, haven't we?" I didn't respond.
After the appointment, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day was normal... some shopping, cleaning, cooking, etc. After school when my six year old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, "Mommy, where's my washcloth?"
I told her to get another one from the cupboard. She replied."NO, I NEED THE ONE THAT WAS HERE BY THE SINK, IT HAD ALL MY GLITTER & SPARKLES SAVED INSIDE IT"

  1. I love that cartoon about walking the dog on a windy day. We had the same high winds you had, took a lot of trees down and one fell on a little girls, another on a car. A passenger in the car died. The only damage I had was a wind chime got broken, the newest and most costly one in my collection of eleven.

    1. Sorry to hear about your chimes. I love chimes also. I haven't put mine out yet but hopefully do so this week. Luckily, we didn't have any damage around here. The last time I lost roof shingle in the back of the roof.

  2. You've had "a right smart of wind" all right Sounds like the kind that make you tie down the trash cans.

    Hope you had a great time hitting golf balls today!

    1. That wind was really something else. Gigantic trees were pulled right out the ground. Two people died and some cars were destroyed.
      AS far as hitting my golf balls, it went well.
      Thanks for asking.

  3. I hope you were able to play some golf with your friends. You have a nice hat in the last picture!

    1. I haven't been out on the golf course yet but plan on it. The hat was the one the bought in Cartegena, Colombia.
