Stolen from Fran

Isn't this wonderful? I saw it on the hilarious Fran's blog, Being Me.

(Look, Ali Honey - I've done the linky thing!!!! Though I had to get Daughter 1 to explain the technical terms over the phone. But Ali gave me the incentive. Thank you!)

  2. My other favourite punctuation joke is this one.

    A woman, without her man, is nothing.

    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

  3. Very good.
    Yours is great too Fran!

    To do the underlining thing ( I think you mean link to another site ) take your curser up to the tool bar and find the word or icon for link ; click on it and a wee window opens for you to fill in. Try it nothing bad will happen.

  4. Lovely.

    I'm trying to teach my son about periods. He insists upon reading, say, "The cow ate a ladybug." as "The cow ate a ladybug period".

  5. There's a little seaside tourist town not too far from us that has among its shops a "gourmet" icecream parlour right next to a gift/souvenir shop. There is a big sign on the door of the gift shop warning strolling peeps with icecreams: "NO ICECREAMS PLEASE". I think the owners of the icecream parlour probably disagree. :)

  7. Husband is a punctuation fiend, especially missing apostrophe, his current favourite is a large box seen in a DIY store which had on the side:
    Contents: Students, Desk.
    A bit like how many can you fit in a mini?
    I shall pass this one on to him.

  8. And then there's:

    Residents refuse to be put in rubbish bins

    as opposed to:

    Residents' refuse to be put in rubbish bins.

  9. Thanks for the comment you left on my blog. I's not that I don't want to be there for my children if they need me, it's just that I find it hard to think about me at all and I just wondered what other people thought. Somehow I think(make that know) they will always come first and I will just have to sneak the odd five minutes for myself. Love the picture by the way.

  10. Well, it would depend. A younger grandma might be tender and tasty; an older one tough and stringy. I'm wondering which kind I am.....Hmmm.
