Welcome to the start of the weekend

Morning all,

I hope any U.S. readers haven't woken with a hangover today, given that yesterday was Thanksgiving .. especially since today is BLACK FRIDAY!!! Happy shopping!

Me? That'll be a no too - because A) Not in the U.S. and B) NOT going shopping! I've been crafting - more thank you cards in readiness for the pending festive season and I liked the layout of Wednesday's Thank You card but thought I would try it with a different sentiment .....

And now for the Friday Funny, had to find this one on Facebook but it tickled my funny bone as I hope it will yours, ENJOY

A man purchased a new BMW to celebrate his wife leaving him and was out on the country roads for a nice evening drive. The breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing blue lights behind him. "There's no way they can catch a BMW," he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 90, 100.....Then the reality of the situation hit him. "What am I doing?" he thought and pulled over. 

The police officer came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car. "It's been a long hard day, this is the end of my shift and it's Friday. I don't feel like more paperwork, I don't need the frustration or the overtime, so if you can give me a really good excuse for your driving that I haven't heard before, you can go." 

The guy thinks about it for a second and says, "Last week my nagging wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back!" "Have a nice weekend," said the officer.

Have a great weekend too
