Mostly Funnies, A Random and Happy Tuesday Post

(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.) 


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





It's time once again for a random and happy Tuesday, linking up with Stacy's Random Thoughts at Stacy Uncorked and Sandee at Comedy Plus.  

Dr. Dee kept me hopping yesterday with plenty of errands and lots of cleaning.  She's still not feeling well, however, so we will move on to some funnies.








Hope everyone has a fabulous Tuesday!
