And now for the GOOD Friday Funny, this week provided (once again) by my pal Pat, thanks Pat - ENJOY .......... it's called "UNDERWEAR DUST"!!!

One evening a Husband, thinking he was being funny, said to his wife, 'Perhaps we should start washing your clothes in 'Slim Fast'. Maybe it would take a few inches off of your butt!'
His wife was not amused, and decided that she simply couldn't let such a comment go unrewarded.
The next morning the husband took a pair of underwear out of his drawer. 'What the Hell is this?' he said to himself as a little 'dust' cloud appeared when he shook them out.
'April', he hollered into the bathroom, ' Why did you put Talcum Powder in my underwear?'

She replied with a snicker. 'It's not talcum powder; it's 'Miracle Grow'!!!!!

The moral of the story? Never mess with a smart woman!!!!! Enjoy your Easter weekend and I hope the weather stays great for you all.
