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.
Grandma is doing much better, she's back to teasing Grandpa frequently. As he was paying the A/C repair guy for another visit, she jokingly held out her hand.
"Where's mine?" she asked.
"What do you mean, 'where's yours'?" he shot back.
"You could at least give me a tip!" she said, with a huge grin.
"I'll tip you, all right," he joked back, and they both laughed.
Boudreaux done take de fam'ly out fo' Sunday dinner after de church service an' when dey done paid an' be leavin', little Aline done say, "Père, you mus' like de lady dat done wait on us more'n you like de priest, you done give her a bigger tip!"
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 was hosted by River, who still participates, and is now hosted by Elephant's Child.
