8/10 - New Blog for Sale
Thursday, August 10, 2006
“Dija see the post-it note on the house as you came in?” My sweet
wife said to me after I got home from (stupid) traffic school.
“No, where was it?” I said.
“I took it off” said son #3.
“What’s going on?” I replied.
Apparently son #4 wanted to sell the house because our sidewalk
turned to go to the driveway, instead of going straight out to the
street. He also didn’t like the fact that our doorbell is out of
order. Son #3 had a different view. He kinda likes the house we
live in, and thought that if there was a for sale ‘sign’ on the
house, someone would drive by and buy it, and then we wouldn’t
have a place to live. Of course, a huge argument ensued between
*sigh* My boys will fight over just about anything...
Enjoy today’s Jokes!
p.s. Oh yeah... and it seems we have a little competition over at
Marty’s Joke of the Day. My sweet wife sheepishly told me a week
or so ago that she has been doing her own blog for the past couple
of months. She said she’ll put it on a ‘real’ blog site when she
gets good. I happen to think she’s good now, tell me what you
think. (But she does like a good cliff hanger!) Check it out at
by starting here.
A Mother's Perspective
p.p.s. Hey, it's our 350th issue here at martysjotd.blogspot.com,
and, we hit our 22,222 visitor today!
Jim Kevin, a good friend of mine just returned from traveling
around the USA for a year. He had a lot of stories to tell, but
this was my favorite. It seems he was looking for a bank and
stopped to ask directions. The man he asked replied "Just drive
down this road about 5 miles and then turn left at the Stop n
Go." He drove 5 miles, then 6, then 7. At about 10 miles down he
stopped for directions again. The man he asked replied, "Just go
back down this road about 5 miles and turn right at the Stop n
Go" He headed out again but still had no luck. When he got back
to where he had started he stopped again. When he asked for
directions the answer was exactly the same. This time Jim asked,
"Could you describe the Stop n Go for me?" The man gave him a
funny look and slowly said "It's on a pole. It's got a red light
on the top, a Green light on the bottom...."
My wife and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her,
"Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state,
dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever
happens, just pull the plug." She got up, unplugged the TV and
threw out all of my beer!
Did I read that sign correctly?
