Hey howdy and do!!! That is my funny greeting for the week. I hope all is just peachy this week for all of you. My week would have been that way, too.

I have had a hard week. I hope next week will be peachy-keen!

I haven’t put any funnies in for a while, here goes! I just about fell out of my seat with laughter when it was read to me. I will say this one is for all of us in the mid-40s to the mid-80s. Enjoy the ride:

Hilarious Things My Mother Taught Me…

1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE. “ If you’re going to kill each other, do it

outside. I just finished cleaning.”

2. My mother taught me RELIGION. “You better pray that will come out of the carpet.”

3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL. “If you don’t straighten up, I’m going to knock you into the middle of next week!”

4. My mother taught me Logic. “Because I said so, that’s why.”

5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC. “If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to the store with me.”

6. My mother taught me FORSIGHT. “Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”

7. My mother taught me IRONY “Keep crying, and I’ll give you something to cry about.”

8. My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS. “Shut your mouth and eat your supper.”

9. My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM. “Will you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!”

10. My mother taught me about STAMINA. “You’ll sit there until all that spinach is gone.”

I will tell you this, I can relate to all of these. I’ll bet you all can, too. I could tell stories about this ‘til the cows come home.

Times sure have changed. I remember the Candlestick Bush. We had to pic our own switch. If we came back with the small one, rather than a large one, we would get it worse than she had planned.

Those are the bygone days. It didn’t kill any of us, but I thought we were going to die from time to time. I am just thankful I am alive to tell about it. (Giggle)

It wasn’t funny back then as it was happening, but it is now looking back. Lord, have mercy on all of us!

I want to share a secret that some of you may not know about. We have talked about chicken and all the ways to prepare it. I have shared with you why preachers love chicken. I want to tell you about a place I order it from.

I am not knocking the competition. You just need to try it. The Scotchman on West Main Street will make your tongue slap your eyeballs out with their chicken.

I went in there the other day and told one of the girls, how good the chicken was. There was nothing left but the skeletons on what we had.

The staff at Scotchman makes you feel right at home. I can taste that chicken now. Yummy!

The latest you can order is 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Drop on by and tell them I sent you. The number to call is (423) 272-8645, and it is reasonably priced. They have other good food, too. You can eat in or do take out!

“And that’s the way I see it.”

Have a blessed coming week! You are loved! Let’s get sweet! Enjoy!
