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.
7. Go to Sandee's site, linked above, and get the Silly Sunday code for your blog, too!

As noted last week, my brother, the children's Uncle P, is going to be marrying Ms. E this summer.  Plans are being made, but not complicated ones.  They are of an age where they want simple, not elaborate.

There's always a weddin' goin' on down in de bayou, an' since Ol' Boudreaux an' Ms. Ada done been marry since over sixty year, one young groom decide to ax dem fo' marriage advice.

"Ol' Boudreaux," de groom ax, "how you an' Ms. Ada done be marry so long an' be so happy?"

"Well," say Boudreaux, "we done made a 'greement when we get marry dat she goin' make all de small decision, an' if somefin' come up big, i be goin' make all de big decision."

"Dat sound good," de young groom say, "but how it work out over de years?"

"Mais, it work great!" Ol' Boudreaux say.  "Ada done make all de small decisions, an' we ain't never got to no big ones yet!"
