Morning readers - the weekend starts here!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to new followers Dana and Heather, I hope you will both find time to pop back soon.

Yesterday saw me getting grumpie! in the nicest possible sense of the word! A pal bought me a sheet of grumpies unmounted rubber stamps as part of my birthday gift (THANKS matey) so I sat and cut them out the other evening and could hardly wait to get them inky. Only problem is (and this is NO criticism) they are Halloween Grumpies and October's an awfully long way away so, what to do with said Halloween Grumpies in May!! Well, I was talking to a pal and she set me to thinking of a splendid project so . . . I set to work. Now, I can't share this with you today as I mailed it yesterday and it might spoil the surprise as I KNOW she's a follower so I hope to be able to share my little grumpie with you tomorrow - just wanted to let you know that I had indeed been crafting!

And now for this week's Friday Funny ... this week provided by Liz and Graeme - thanks guys! It's a long one so ..........  ENJOY

Your Yearly Dementia Test-- only 4 questions

Our Yearly Dementia Test

It's that time of year for us to take our annual senior citizen test.

Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you lose it!

Below is a very private way to gauge how your memory compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty.

Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.

OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

1. What do you put in a toaster?

Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast' give up now and do something else..

Try not to hurt yourself.

If you said, bread, go to Question 2.

2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?

Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading more appropriate literature such as Auto World.

However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3.

3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?

Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading these??? If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4.

4. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales . In London , 17 people get on the bus. In Reading , 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on. In Swindon , 2 people get off and 4 get on. In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea , 3 people get off and 5 people get on. In Carmarthen, 6 people get off and 3 get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven ..

Without scrolling back to review, how old is the bus driver?

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!

Don't you remember your own age?

It was YOU driving the bus!!

PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!!

Happy Friday peeps!!!, have a good one
