Biggest Small (Cajun Joke) and Sunday Selections

(Because some people like Blogger and some like WordPress, i am putting the same content at both.  If you would prefer to read this on the other site, it is linked here.)  


***********************************


Just because Sandee of Comedy Plus has quit hosting a Silly Sunday blog hop, don’t expect me to quit telling Cajun jokes.

There was an accident after church last week.  One of the pastors got home and fell on his stairs going up to the house and broke his arm.  He's going to recover, it's just the difficulty of dealing with a broken limb.

Tee Boudreaux be done like mos' young boy, he allus be climbin' de trees an' takin' chances.  One day he done broke his arm, so Boudreaux an' Clothile done take him to de doctor for to get it set in de cast.

When de doctor done finish, de nurse be fittin' Tee wit' de sling.  Since Tee be a young boy, she say, "I only gots one small sling fo' de size o' you."

An' Tee object, he say, "But I be a big boy now, i be almos' 6!"

So de nurse say, "You right, you do be a big boy now.  Well, dis be de biggest sling we have in you size!"

Sunday Selections was started as a way for bloggers to use photos that might otherwise just languish in their files.  The rules have been relaxed, and it is now simply a showcase for your photos, new or old, good or bad, although nothing rude, please.  It is now hosted by River at Drifting Through Life.   

It's starting to look like some holidays are coming:

The shelter hasn't put up everything yet.








When i worked in Mr. BA's yard yesterday, he had me weeding again.  My plant killing talents are alive and well.  He tells me what to leave, and i take the rest:

Before.


After.
