We All Need A Giggle About Now ... So Here Goes ........


A young blonde girl in her late teens, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided to hire herself out as a "handy woman" and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood.

She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do.

"Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint the porch," he said. "How much will you charge me?"

Delighted, the girl quickly responded, "How about $50?"

The man agreed and told her that the paint and brushes and everything she would need were in the garage.

The man's wife, hearing the conversation, said to her husband, "Does she realize that our porch goes ALL the way around the house?"

"That's a bit cynical, isn’t it?" he responded.

The wife replied, "You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those dumb blonde jokes."

A few hours later the blonde came to the door to collect her money. "You're finished already??" the startled husband asked.

"Yes," the blonde replied, "and I even had paint left over so I gave it two coats."

Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50 and handed it to her along with a $10 tip.

"Thank you," the blonde said, "And, by the way, it's not a Porch, it’s a Lexus."

One Week Down ....

Only 51 to go till next year!

Sorry I didn't catch up yesterday but this virus is fighting back.  I spent much of the weekend resting, then after 8 hours standing at work I came home very wobbly ... went to bed early, and have in fact had to call in sick again today.  So have spent much of today in bed.  The cough is unchanged, but am just really tired, despite increasing my fluids, fruit and salad items to try to boost my body.

Still, have had some extra chocolate today ... just in the need of boosting the energy to fight the bugs ... NO other reason at all!!

The house is de-decked and not actually packed away, as I want to decorate the cupboard they live in ... its under the staires and houses everything, so want to paint it, add extra hooks (for spare hangers, carrier bags, etc).

Oh well, will try and catch up with my f-list ... and comments to previous comments.

Hope you are having a fun day.
