Silly Sunday: Yes, this really happened!

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!

The A/C is, for now, unclogged.  Kurt will be back next week to clean it and give it an annual check-up.

Meanwhile, the door to the A/C closet has been re-latched.  It's a difficult door to open and shut.

Li'l Tee Boudreaux usta done have him a hard time wit' the latch on de door, too.  One day, he be tryin' an' tryin', an' he jes' cain't get him dat hook latch to do right, an' along come his Grand-mère Boudreaux.

An' Grand-mère say, "Mais, you do like dis," an' she get him a li'l stool to step up on an' she show him how do it.  "Take de latch, an' de point go down in de eye, an' you done hooked de door."

An' Li'l Tee say, "Grand-mère, dat be jes' right!  You be de bestes' hooker in de whole world!"
