Something Funny...

Thursday, October 20, 2011

An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, 
"I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you 
that your mother and I are divorcing; 
forty-five years of misery is enough. 

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams. 

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old man says. 
"We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, 
so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her," and he hangs up. 

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. 
"Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, 
"I'll take care of this." 

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, 
"You are NOT getting divorced. 
Don't do a single thing until I get there. 
I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. 
Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up. 

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. 

"Okay," he says, "They're coming for Thanksgiving 
and paying their own fares ... 

Now what do we tell them for Christmas?

Enjoy your Thursday!
Please make sure you stop by tomorrow for
"Something Yummy for the Colonel's Tummy!"

    Your right btw, haha, I added the pics last night. I was soo rushed to get out the door yesterday and everything was taking soo long to do on the computer for some reason and it bugged me ALL day that I hadn't put the pics on that post that I wanted too, lol, so I did it when I got home. It was cute of Sam (though I wish his eyes were open)...she is just sooo enthralled with everything that baby does...I am almost enjoying her more enjoying him, than enjoying him. Did you get that?
