Silly Sunday: Memory

Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs.  The rules are simple, just have fun.

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!

  2. I've forgotten what I was going to comment. The last entry on Today in History wiped out all thoughts. We came very close to losing my niece in that flood. She saw things that day that will stay with her forever. I remember now, I wanted to thank you for your standing at the computer suggestion. My g-daughter set up my comp for me that way and it is much better. Thanks for the Today in History reminder to give thanks for Lizzie.
