Silly Sunday: Is There Time?

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!

Little Girl called just as i was finishing work yesterday to come pick her up from her two weeks of military training.  Actually, she had been there two weeks and an extra day.  It seems several of her battle buddies did a little too much cutting up, and the sergeant made them all stay an extra 24 hours because of it.

You would think, after military training, they wouldn't do stuff like that.

Boudreaux, after his son Tee done got in trouble at school, turn an' ax Clothile, "When do old enough to know better kick in?"

An' Clothile say, "Mais, I don' know, but in you case, time be runnin' out!"
