This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!
  1. Post a joke.
  2. Link Up with the URL to your joke in the Linky Tools Widget.
  3. Read my joke.
  4. Leave a comment to tell me how much you enjoyed my joke.
  5. Try and visit a few others participating in Silly Sunday.
  6. Go to Sandee's site, linked above, and get the Silly Sunday code for your blog, too!
We are having a great time, and Carmen the Garmin has come in handy.  Even though she has lived in San Antonio for many years, Grace does get turned around and lost on occasion.

It reminds me of a friend who told me, about his wife, "Don't ever take her shortcuts, as her shortcuts take longer!"

One day de police car done pull up in front de house an' 
Grand-père Boudreaux done get out.  Grand-mère Boudreaux come a runnin' out an' ax, "What be wrong?"


Officer Thibodeaux say, "He be walkin' in de park, an' he done tol' me he be lost, so I bring him home."

An' Grand-mère Boudreaux say, "How you get lost?  You been goin' to dat park since you be a li'l boy!"

An' Grand-père Boudreaux lean over an' whisper, "Mais, I din't be lost, I jes' be too tired to walk home!"

  2. Clever thinking on his part! We love our GPS, have used it in San Antonio before, and its a lifesaver when it comes to avoiding frustration and trying to follow maps and directions from the folks at the gas station!
