Just because Sandee of Comedy Plus is no longer hosting a Silly Sunday blog hop, do not expect me to quit telling Cajun jokes, especially as it has now become a habit.
Sweetie has applied for a new life insurance policy, and they are taking their time. While they think about it, i am considering having him sign up for those policies that just pay off your debts, like the mortgage, if you go.

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 Elephant's Child.
Today's is truly simply some photos, old and new, that i wanted to share. Some are artwork i admired, or kittens we've raised, or just things i found on my computer that struck my fancy today. Maybe i should take this kind of walk down memory lane more often!
