Good morning and welcome to the Friday Funny post

Hi folks,
Another weekend looms large on the horizon and it's the last in November too, Can't believe it will be December on SUNDAY ..... how many sleeps till Christmas?
This week, we managed to get the decorations down from the loft with the intention of putting up the outside lights on a fine mild day ...... which was fine, until Tuesday and my aunt and uncle's phone call setting up a visit for Wednesday - we decided that all the decorations boxes just made the place look untidy - there was nothing for it but to tidy up ...... by putting the tree up so it also looked nice and festive for their visit too!

Unfortunately, I got in to a bit of a speed wobble and decided to put up a tree in the dining room too! The outside lights went up yesterday - although they are not actually plugged in .............. YET! I think the grand switch on will probably be on Sunday!!! And, as if that wasn't bad enough, my hubby has the CUTEST tree (a gift, MANY years ago from friends Mat and Di - thanks guys) in his office - all it needed this year was a new set of lights and ....

And guess what? On a crafting front - here's yet ANOTHER Christmas card?!?!?! I'll be entering this for the new challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches - this week's challenge is a sketch (which is below my card)

And now for this week's Friday Funny which comes to you courtesy of, Marsha so you can all blame her!!! ENJOY!!!!


The Talking Centipede

A guy decided life would be more fun
if he had a pet.

So he went to the pet store
and told the owner
that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion,
he finally bought a talking centipede,
(100-legged bug),
which came in a little white box
to use for his house.

He took the box back home,
found a good spot for the box,
and decided he would start off
by taking his new pet
to church with him.

So he asked the centipede in the box,
"Would you like to go
to church with me today?
We will have a good time."

But there was no answer
from his new pet.

This bothered him a bit,
but he waited a few minutes
and then asked again,
"How about going
to church with me
and receive blessings?"

But again,
there was no answer
from his new friend and pet.
So he waited
a few minutes more,
thinking about the situation.

The guy decided
to invite the centipede
one last time.

This time

put his face up against
the centipede's house and shouted,

"Hey, in there! 
Would you like to go
church with me?

This time, 
a little voice 
came out of the box,

"I heard you the first time!

I ' m putting my shoes on!"

Have a fab Friday and a great weekend

Aaaaargh, I just got up and ran away screaming Kathy! HOW organised is that then?! Looks lovely though.

Love your card too and at least the centipede didn't have a wooden leg '99-clop, 99-clop'.

Hugs, Di xx

Clare Lloyd said...

All looking very festive. Great card too.

Lesley Thomas said...

Very envious you have your decorations already done. Love the fat snowman too.

Hettie said...

Good Grief Kath! I LOVE Christmas but it is way too early for me to put the tree up! Having a wood fire doesn't help as I don't like them to get dusty!
Lovely card.
Hope the centipede has finished putting his shoes on!

What a great FF - made me laugh out loud !

Your trees are looking magnificent. I'm putting up resistance, will not allow you to panic me as I am so much further behind than you in my preparations ! I'm sure it will all get done in time, but at the moment it's a daunting task. Not helped by the fact that the majority of my gift wrapping and card writing have a 15 December deadline, which is when I shall be delivering most of them - Ooooo noooooo !

Oh, forgot to say how fabby your cards are - that's a great sketch.
