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.
Yesterday i took the bread Bigger Girl sent in the mail with me to Grandma and Grandpa's house. She'd wanted them to be able to try it.
It was an organic tomato basil sourdough. Sweetie thought it was splendid, and i enjoyed the first slice but held off after that to make sure there'd be plenty to take to NOLA.
Miss Eva gave it a big thumbs up, and Grandma was over the moon about it. In fact, i ended up leaving almost all of it for her, as she'd already eaten 1/3 of the loaf by herself.
Grandpa had a slice even though he told us, "I'm allergic to organic stuff, cause that means it's healthy, and I'm allergic to healthy food." He ate a very thin slice of the bread and said, "It's not too bad, but I certainly don't want any more!"
Clothile done decide to put de fam'ly on de health food. She done be searchin' ways to make de food dey eat more healthy, and puttin' mo' veg'table on de table. When Tee done argue wit' her dat he don' like it, she done tole him dat he need to grow up healthy an' to do dat he done need to eat healthy so he can live him a long life.
One day, Tee done see Boudreaux shakin' hims head at some o' what be on de table, and when Clothile done gone in de kitchen to get som'pin, he say, "Père, do it be true dat when you eat de healthy food, you lives longer?"
An' Boudreaux done shake hims head an' say, "Mais, it sure seem longer!"
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. https://myjustsostory.blogspot.com/
Bigger Girl's bread arrived in an oversized box and i had a slice right away, then took most of the rest to NOLA.
