Post to the Host:
Loved the jokes How to you introduce a hamburger? Meet Patty and also the guy who named his pet Tiny because it was "my newt" were my faves. I've been relaying most of them to my two girls and hearing them groan.
I've spent the last two days in long johns and an Elmer Fudd cap, bringing in wood for the fire, baking a double batch of banana bread just to save on the fuel bill, and deciding a loaf pan just might be the right size for 2 parakeets.
GK, you are making my plummet into middle age a little less intolerable! I would have written a little sooner, but I had to pour a can of Coke and a half-cup of lemon juice into the washer to get the grease out of my husband's mechanic wardrobe. Greetings and thanks from the southernmost part of the state, just a mile west of Round Prairie Lutheran Church on I-35.
I love dumb jokes too, some of them, like "my newt" which is right around third-grade level and hits me where I live. Renae, you're all the audience a man could want, you justify all the trouble we go to every week, setting up microphones, popping popcorn, and all the rest of it. You're not plummeting, you are on a gentle glide path and just when you least expect it you'll get a big updraft and soar away like nobody's business. The Coke and lemon juice solvent is something you might think about manufacturing Sather's Lather and if you do, we can find you some mechanic jokes to put on the side of the package.
