Happy Friday peeps

Hi folks,

How's your Friday looking? And your weekend?

Yesterday saw the four of us heading off to Lakeland - Wynneth and I to Violettes (where we had a group hug with Diana, the owner) and the guys to HobbyTown. We had a good old mooch around and spent a few dollars!!!

Once we left the wondrous Violettes it was off to Manny's for an equally wondrous steak dinner. Now Manny's is a restaurant we are familiar with in two locations but a third one opened up whilst we've been away and this was the one we tried - it's in Winter Haven and had previously been known as Christy's. We enjoyed two for one beers and spirits as well as tender (and huge) steaks!! We left there full and happy and headed home to play with our stash.

Man who wants pretty nurse, must be patient.

Passionate kiss, like spider web, leads to undoing of fly.

Lady who goes camping must beware of evil intent.

Squirrel who runs up woman's leg will not find nuts.

Man who leaps off cliff, jumps to conclusion.

Man who runs in front of car gets tired, man who runs behind car gets exhausted..

Man who eats many prunes get good run for money.

War does not determine who is right, it determines who is left.

Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at night.

It takes many nails to build a crib, but one screw to fill it.

Man who drives like hell is bound to get there.

Man who stands on toilet is high on pot.

Man who live in glass house should change clothes in basement.

Man who fish in other man's well often catch crabs.

Finally CONFUCIUS SAY. . .... "A lion will not cheat on his wife, but a Tiger Wood!"
Happy Friday!!!!
