Baby's First Doctor Visit
This made me laugh out loud. I hope it will give you a smile!
A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam.
The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed.
'Breast-fed,' she replied..
'Well, strip down to your waist,' the doctor ordered.
She did He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination.
Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said, 'No wonder this baby is
underweight. You don't have any milk.'
I know,' she said, 'I'm his Grandma,
But I'm glad I came.


1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again..

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Ladies......Quit Laughing.

Good morning ever.e.one. wave

Come one come all
It's your breakfast meal call
Have some coffee and a roll
Go outside and shoot a mole
If you kill him, cook him good
Fresh meat with eggs is real fine food.

That's a real Okie meal right there. snicker

It's best if you don't read this until after you've eaten your real breakfast, ok? wink

I want to thank someone for sending me the jokes........ headscratch.........so if you sent them......thank you!

Oh Sharon could we have your thunderboomers???? I'll trade ya! Lake Superior lost four inches of water in September alone. eek That equals a lot of water concidering the lake size.

What a morning. Went to Wally World, got home, and discovered I was missing a bag of stuff. Had to go back and get it. Geez, I hate those carousel thingies that hold the plastic bags. Thought the checker had put all the bags in my cart while I was paying. That is the second time that has happened. Next time will twirl the thingie around and check all the bags. Now, my big question is.... where did I start? lol

It is so nice out. Shirt sleeve weather.

I'm home for the rest of the day. Uh-oh, just looked at the time. Time to get lunch ready.

Ahhhh, up for the 2nd time. I woke up at 4:30 and could not fall back asleep. Ended up walking around in a daze for most of the morning. Finally grabbed the dogs and went back to bed. Now feeling much better. wave

Re: Whump Day - 10/03/12 01:52 PM

L4L, I do that too -sometimes reading can put you back to sleep. Once I started playing Oblivion at 4AM and by 10AM the cats were beating me up for their breakfast -I never stopped playing.

The new Doom will be out in 20 days....hurry!! Then the next milestone is Killzone 4 then play station 4 thenthenthen...Can one take her playstation to heaven with her?

Lovely October weather. Cool nights warm days. It's supposed to be in the 90's in a few days.

My 3 daughters have joined an organization and they raid the bad puppy mills. How exciting. When a raid is planned they hop on a plane and get wherever and raid. And it's a good cause. I knew my daughters are Vikings.

Enjoy the day and hit those games

Re: Whump Day - 10/03/12 02:44 PM

Not much sleep last night. Shadow started not feeling well at 1am and we were up and out every hour after that. Lack of sleep and the rainy day gave me a headache that I am trying to get rid of.

Sue, glad to see you here but sorry you are under the weather. Chamomile tea and chicken soup in the corner for you.

Haroula, I'm sorry you need another round of meds. Don't forget to take probiotics especially if you are taking antibiotics.

Gerry, have a great day.

Gail, I hope you are able to help Sherlock and WAtson today. lol

Sharon, have fun zipping around today in your rental. yay

Connie, have fun at Costco. They have added so many new healthy options lately, I am really loving it!

Nan, it's a rainy day here so no park run. Zumba was great though even with my pounding head.
Still unsure if I am heading to the corner or not.

Darlene, hope you are having a good day.

Bets, I hate going back to the store because you left something. Send heat my way. I am not ready for this fall weather.

L4L, I hope the rest of day goes smoothly for you.

Yankee, how wonderful of your daughters to do that. You raised them right!

I decided it was a great day for cooking since it's a steady rain out there. I made a large pan of chicken parmesan and whole grain pasta. Sam and her fiance decided to come down and join us for dinner also with my grandpuppies. It will be a full house here!

Sweet dreams Haroula.

SpaceQ, are you doing a park run?

Nan, I am feeling better. THanks! Have fun running the taxi tonight.

Hi guys. I had a day off today. I decided to go see my Mom and spend some time with her. It's getting very hard for me. She can't say what's on her mind anymore. I have to figure out what she means. sad It breaks my heart. She has a very sweet roommate. I did get to see my aunt (her sister) while I was there. I left there feeling very sad that I'm losing my Mom.

Hope your day was good. It's Shell"s birthday today. I know she doesn't stop in at GB's much anymore. I just wanted to wish her a very birthday anyway.

See you tomorrow. Night everyone.

Hullo everybody. wave

I've had a very busy day and I'm so glad it's winding down. I'm tired of being wound up. tired

I brought Baby home from Mom's with me to spend the night with me and she is happily curled up next to me now. wink

I went walking about the neighbor's place this afternoon, and only found a piece of an arrowhead that got broken up sometime long ago. I can tell it was a super nice arrowhead before it was broken. yes

Tomorrow is a 1:00 to 9:00 work day, and then I'll be opening Friday at like 5:00. slapforehead

Hi L4L. Yes, it's so hard. Especially for me because I live more than hours away from her. I can't see her as much as I want to. Hi Joe. I'm so glad you got to have your Baby with you overnight. I'm sure she misses you.

I'm calling it a night. Night all.
