WOT? ANOTHER Friday??? Yippeeeeeeee!!!

Friday again and one or two things to share with you today.

Yesterday it was decided that we would head to Ruskin and St. Petersburg and this meant trips to both Sparkle 'n Sprinkle and Whimsodoodle - Wynneth and I had a good old rummage round in both and here are some pix

Approaching the skyway bridge

Outside of Whimsodoodle or, as it is henceforth known, WYNNETHsodoodle!

My stash haul .... mostly from WYNNETHsodoodle but the bottom
right includes three stamps from Sparkle 'n Sprinkle
Dinner? Well we dragged the seafood hating Tom to the Red Lobster under the pretext that their Cheddar Bay Biskwits are to die for .... thankfully, he agreed!! We had a glorious meal - mine was the scallop and shrimp linguine - DE-lish! Back to Wynneth and Toms for a bevy and we watched their local gator strut his funky around the lake to the rear of their property and then watched a heron hunting for his supper. Three sandhill cranes flew over, presumably taking their post prandial exercise too! Home after a busy day and crashed out!!!

Clare is honouring Breast Cancer Awareness this month and has launched her "Pink Friday Project Party!". Naturally, loving a challenge like I do, I couldn't resist having a go .......
Materials used:
  • Navy ATC blank
  • Off cut of white card cut to "almost" ATC size, to leave a narrow navy border
  • Kaisercraft "graffiti" image stamped using Versamark ink and then pan pastel "magenta" applied with a Sofft sponge. Polished with a piece of paper towel and then cheap hairspray applied, to set
  • Inkadinkado "Rock & Roll" image and Visible Image "barbed wired" image stamped twice using Versafine onyx black ink
And now for the Friday Funny, this week courtesy of ...... our pal, Sandra - it's a little sexist but made me chuckle and I hope it will do the same for you.
A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment.  Suddenly, the man realised that the next day, he would need his wife  to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM " He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight.  Furious, he was about to  go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests!.
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
 "Yep," the wife replied , "in-laws
"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
"So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked.
"No," she replied, " but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally."
I know I'm not going to understand women. I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, and still be afraid of a spider.
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"
A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so  beautiful all at the same time."
The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!"
A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."
The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.........."HEBREWS"
At this point, I'm guessing, he conceded defeat and went downstairs to "brew"!!!!

Have a fab Friday and a great weekend
