No Correction Needed (Cajun Joke) and Memory Lane (Sunday Selections)


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.

Now that things are opening back up a bit, there are people who are insisting that this year, bikini season in the Northern Hemisphere needs to be canceled!

Clothile done be tellin’ Marie dat she done gain so much weight stayin’ home an’ stayin’ safe dat it not be safe fo’ her to go out now she can!

An’ Marie say, “Me, too.  It be so hard when you be home wit’ de husban’ an’ de chil’ren, an’ dey all want de junk food an’ keep it in de house.”

An’ Clothile say, “Dat be fo’ true what you jes’ say.  I gots me two voice I hear.  One say ‘Eat de choc’late,’ an’ de next say, “Mais oui, you done hear right, eat it!’”


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.    

It has been a while since i walked down memory lane and published some old photos that haven’t been hauled out in a while, so how about now.
