TGIF - 12/20/12 10:59 PM

"I shall not die of a cold. I shall die of having lived."
Willa Carter

A guy named Joe receives a free ticket to the SuperBowl from his company. Unfortunately, when Joe arrives at the stadium, he realizes the seat is in the last row in the corner of the stadium, he's closer to the Goodyear Blimp than the field. About halfway through the first quarter, Joe sees through his binoculars an empty seat 10 rows off the field right on the 50 yardline.

He decides to take a chance and makes his way through the stadium and around the security guards to the empty seat. As he sits down, Joe asks the gentleman sitting next to him, "Excuse me, is anyone sitting here?"

The man says "No."

Now, very excited to be in such a great seat for the game, Joe again inquires of the man next to him, "This is incredible! Who in their right mind would have a seat like this at the SuperBowl and not use it?!"

The man replies, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first SuperBowl we haven't been together at since we got married in 1967."

"Well, that's really sad," said Joe, "but still, you couldn't find anyone to take the seat? A friend or close relative?" "No," the man replies, "They're all at the funeral."

One Sunday afternoon, a guy walks into a bar with his pet dog. The bartender said, "Sorry, pal. No pets allowed." The man replied, "This is a special dog. Turn on the Jets game and you'll see." The bartender, anxious to see what will happen, turned on the game. The guy said, "Watch. Whenever the Jets score, my dog does flips." The Jets keep scoring field goals and the dog keeps flipping and jumping. "Wow! That's one hell of a dog you got there. What happens when the Jets score a touchdown?" asked the bartender. The man replied, "I don't know. I've only had him for seven years."

The huge college freshman decided to try out for the football team. "Can you tackle?" asked the coach. "Watch this," said the freshman, who proceeded to run smack into a telephone pole, shattering it to splinters. "Wow," said the coach. "I'm impressed. Can you run?"
"Of course I can run," said the freshman. He was off like a shot, and, in just over nine seconds, he had run a hundred yard dash. "Great!" enthused the coach. "But can you pass a football?" The freshman hesitated for a few seconds. "Well, sir," he said, "if I can swallow it, I can probably pass it." (GRONE)

Mommy Bear and Daddy Bear were in divorce court. The judge looked down and asked the Baby Bear, "So Baby Bear, do you want to live with Daddy Bear?" "Oh, no," Baby Bear replied, "I don't want to live with Daddy Bear. He beat me." "Well then, you should live with Mommy Bear," answered the judge. "On, no, I don't want to live with Mommy Bear. She beat me." "Well then, Baby Bear, who do you want to live with?" Baby Bear said, "I want to live with the Chicago Bears. They don't beat anybody!"

A couple of Yogi Berra's team mates on the Yankees ball club swear that one night the stocky catcher was horrified to see a baby toppling off the roof of a cottage across the way from him. Yogi dashed over and made a miraculous catch - but then force of habit proved too much for him. He straightened up and threw the baby to second base.

The other day was Take Your Daughter To Work day. The Cubs had a fun time, played a little scrimmage against their daughters. Unfortunately they lost, 15-3.

One day, the Devil challenged the Lord to a baseball game. Smiling the Lord proclaimed, "You don't have a chance; I have Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and all the greatest players up here". "Yes", snickered the devil, "but I have all the umpires."

A rookie pitcher was struggling at the mound, so the catcher walked up to have a talk with him. "I've figured out your problem," he told the young southpaw. "You always lose control at the same point in every game." "When is that?" "Right after the National Anthem."

A man walks into a bar with a dog. The bartender says, "You can't bring that dog in here." "You don't understand," says the man. "This is no regular dog, he can talk."
"Listen, pal," says the bartender. "If that dog can talk, I'll give you a hundred bucks. "The man puts the dog on a stool, and asks him, "What's on top of a house?"
"Roof!" "Right. And what's on the outside of a tree?" "Bark!" "And who's the greatest baseball player of all time?" "Ruth!" "I guess you've heard enough," says the man. "I'll take the hundred in twenties." The bartender is furious. "Listen, pal," he says, "get out of here before I belt you." As soon as they're on the street, the dog turns to the man and says, "Do you think I should have said 'DiMaggio'?"

It was a cold winter day. An old man walked out onto a frozen lake, cut a hole in the ice, dropped in his fishing line, and waited patiently for a bite. He was there for almost an hour, without even a nibble, when a young boy walked out onto the ice, cut a hole in the ice next to him. The young boy dropped his fishing line and minutes later he hooked a Largemouth Bass. The old man couldn't believe his eyes but chalked it up to plain luck. Shortly thereafter, the young boy pulled in another large catch. The young boy kept catching fish after fish.

Finally, the old man couldn't take it any longer. "Son" he said, "I've been here for over an hour without even a nibble. You've been here only a few minutes and have caught a half dozen fish! How do you do it?" The boy responded, "Roo raf roo reep ra rums rrarm." "What was that?" the old man asked. Again the boy responded, "Roo raf roo reep ra rums rarrm." "Look," said the old man, "I can't understand a word you're saying." The boy spat the bait into his hand and said... "You have to keep the worms warm!"

Good morning everyboomie. santa

Are you hungry?

I hope you're keeping your worms warm.

Ay mo Ay ahm. sick

So this morning I get up and look out my window and the sun is shining.

I knew immediately that it wasn't yesterday anymore. bravo12

Either that or I'm still sitting on my couch with my head back, and my mouth open, and dreaming that it's morning. tired

Oh I'll bet that's it! How else would you explain that worm thing?

Surely you don't really think I would post such a tasteless joke do you? shame12

I gave up worms during my toddlerhood. pacify

Have a happy day everyone. When you wake up. wink12

When I wake up. sleep12

Good morning Boomers

Just wanted to say that we arrived safely in Italy, that the weather is nice (sunshine, blue sky, temps 48F), that Internet is working (so far) and that I got a headache from driving after sundown yesterday and from the lights of the headlamps of the other cars. Will go to bed early today so as to be chipper and painless again tomorrow.

I hope everything is all right in Boomerland. Happy TGIF everybody. See you (hopefully) tomorrow again. The world here in Europe is still turning and I hope the same for you living over the pond.

Nan: thanks bunches for the Band! They took as save to Italy. They should be with you again now to keep other Boomers save. thanks

Gail: happy Anniversary!!

Just saw Midge's post of Wednesday. I'am so sorry for you. I hope you will have some nice visits with your Mum too in future. HUGS!

Hugs from Evelyne

Re: TGIF - 12/21/12 11:12 AM

Good morning boomies. Slept in this morning so I'll have to stay up later to get my work time in. I do indeed plan on running the dogs. It's a lovely white out there, just enough to cover the ground. They were way off on the forecast, we had a boatload of rain before it got cold out to turn to snow. The only real problem is the ice all over.

I have a 5K to run on New Years Day morning so I have to get used to running in the cold. It will be interesting.

JOe, I hope your tummy is better. hearts

Evelyne, glad to hear you made it safely and hope you enjoy Italy. I hope your head will cooperate with your visit.

Darlene, safe skooshing!

manxman, I have one left to go and not sure when I can find something. I'll start panicking on Monday. lol12

Gail, happy anniversary to you! 49 years is fantastic! hearts

Connie, have a great day!

Midgie, I hope you have Christmas off.

Gerry, have a great day.

Sue, I'm not sure if we are sending any weather your way, but we got the cold now. It 21 this morning. I'm sure Nan got us beat!

Venus, hope work goes well.

Haroula, is it still warm by you? the corner and then a chilly run with the dogs.

Re: TGIF - 12/21/12 12:59 PM

Ana, yes son is coming. He is not feeling well, but is coming along for the ride. We are leaving lots of time to get there, so we can stop often if needed.

It is 47 out there with a 21 mile an hour wind! Lets hope it improves in GA where Callaway is. Thankfully, we will drive through the lights in our car, but the prelight time will be filled with walking around and I don't have a coat. Will borrow a jacket from hubby or bundle up in my GameBoomers hoodie. rotfl12

Lotus and all read my post on the birthday thing -it's about kitty cat.

Lovely warm day and tomatos look pretty good and I may have sprouted a pomegranate bush. Hope it's warm enough for them here.

All this snow up north -I kinda miss it- Wake up in AM, look out window and trees woods yards covered and a stillness. Getting nostalgic.

Anyway on to the game baddies and today I'll gettem.

Happy Friday
