Its Friday Funnies here at my tea cottage, and I’m so glad you’re here to laugh with me. I don’t know about you, but right now, the world, especially our own country, seems to be going a little off-sides, to use a football term, and it just seems to me that if all of the leaders around the world would trade their anger in on a little laughter, we might get somewhere. Alright, that’s just a little naive, I know, but its a good thought, anyway, and even if they don’t, we can…so come along the happy trail today, and let Kim at http://homesteadersheart.blogspot.com/ and all these great participants cheer you up.
I can’t tell you how many funny stories and videos I’ve come across this week that I wanted to share with you, but then I got this in an email, and thought it was too cute to pass up. Enjoy!
A 72 year old bachelor who loved to fish was sitting in his boat
one day when he heard a sexy female voice say, 'Hey, handsome, pick me up.'
He looked around and couldn't see any one. He thought he was dreaming so he returned to his fishing--when he heard the voice say again, 'Go ahead, Good Lookin', pick me up.'
He looked in the water and there, floating on the top , was a frog.
The man said, 'Are you talking to me?'
The frog said still in that sexy female voice, 'Well, Yessss, I am talking to you.
Pick me up, then kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!'
The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, carefully picked it up, and placed it in his front pocket of his shirt.
Then the frog said, 'WHAT? Are you crazy? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will make your dreams come true.'
He opened his pocket, looked at the frog, smiled and said, 'Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog.'
With age comes wisdom
When I first read this story, I did laugh…I wasn’t expecting the punch line. Now, if you’re like me, and I know you are, you will find a “moral” to this story…I would love to hear it, so please share your thoughts in the comment section… funny or serious…whatever comes to your mind.
Okay…I’ll go first.
Because this story ends with the words “with age comes wisdom”, what came to my mind was “temptation often comes to us looking very beautiful and appealing, with promises of wealth, fame, power, or whatever your desires may be.” However, it often disappoints and brings more heartache than its worth.
What do YOU say?
Have a wonderful Friday, everyone…may the good Lord bless you. I pray that He blesses our beautiful, free country, the United States of America. I pray that we stay united in our fight for an honest government that is truly for “we, the people”. If you’ve followed the news, you know that our voices make a difference…speak up, stand up, pray up!
Don’t forget our troops and their families. Pray that they are protected by an invisible blanket that covers them, by an invisible shield that sends the bullets back to the sender, and by an invisible force, the Army of the Lord, that will fight along side each and every one of them.
