{November 14, 2011}   Mirthful Monday

There are 10 days left until Thanksgiving and for most people, this is a day where family gets together and spends time together. Whenever you get family together, there are bound to be strong emotions. While an occasional argument may erupt, there are sure to at least be a moment or two of laughter somewhere in the mix. This Mirthful Monday is dedicated to families and the laugh out loud moments they bring!

A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination, he looked at the old pages as he turned them. Then something fell out of the Bible and he picked up and looked at it closely. It was an old leaf from a tree that has been pressed in between pages.  “Momma, look what I found”, the boy called out.   “What have you got there, dear?” his mother asked.  With astonishment in the young boy’s voice he answered: “I think it’s Adam’s suit!”

FAMILY HISTORY

One day a sweet little girl becomes puzzled about her origin. “How did I get here, Mommy?” she asks.

Her mother replies, using a well-worn phrase, “Why God sent you, Honey.”

“And did God send you too, Mommy?” she continues. “Yes, Sweetheart, he did.”

“And Daddy, and Grandma and Grandpa, and their moms and dads, too?”

“Yes, Honey, all of them, too.”

The child shakes her head in disbelief. “Then you’re telling me there’s been no sex in this family for over 200 years? No wonder everyone is so grouchy!”

Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children. (Sorry, Mom!)  

 My dad gave me this advice “Son, there are a couple of times in a man’s life
when he does not understand a woman” “What are they” I enquired. “Before
marriage and also after marriage”. 

The average mother takes two whole days to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner but most kids don’t really care. I have taken an informal but exhaustive poll of kids and have come to the conclusion that if Twinkies came with drumsticks, all turkeys would die of old age.  

It was the first time the blonde was eating Thanksgiving dinner without her family. Trying to re-enact the tradition, she prepared a dinner for herself alone. The next day, her mother called to see how everything went.
“Oh, mother, I made myself a lovely dinner, but I had so much trouble trying to eat the turkey!” said the daughter.
“Did it not taste good?” her mother asked. 
“I don’t know,” the blonde said. “It wouldn’t sit still!”

This is ONE way of getting your family to your home for the holidays:

A man in Florida, in his 80s, calls his son in New York one November day. 

The father says to the son, “I hate to tell you, but we’ve got some troubles here in the house. Your mother and I can’t stand each other anymore, and we’re getting a divorce. I’ve had it! I want to live out the rest of my years in peace. I’m telling you now, so you and your sister shouldn’t go into shock later when I move out.” 

He hangs up, and the son immediately calls his sister in the Hampton and tells her the news. The sister says, “I’ll handle this.” 

She calls Florida and says to her father, “Don’t do ANYTHING till we get there! We’ll be there Wednesday night.” The father agrees, “All right.” 

He hangs up the phone and hollers to his wife, “Okay, they’re coming for Thanksgiving. Now, what are we going to tell them for Christmas?

Laughter IS the best medicine 🙂 That’s why I love it when I click on a blog & get a laugh.

Please forgive me, but I found your blog a bit difficult to read with that greyness behind it. Certain highlighted coloured words jumped out at me – just the black is difficult. I did like your blog, but it was difficult. Just saying, to help you out – you know, someone else’s perspective. I’ve read your blog before, it’s good. I never know when I’ll get you though because you change your avatar 🙂 So I click on the two faces, and I get you! It’s great you gave thanks to laughter.



I saw that myself but I can’t help what the background of my theme is….I like my theme and i’ll try to do my best with what it offers. I’ve used this theme for almost a year and while I have noticed it being harder to read a few times, this is the first anyone has said anything about it. I will see what I can do….as for the avatar, I don’t change it so I have no idea why you seeing different ones all the time.
Thanks for your comment and stopping by my blog!



*you’re….sorry for the typo…trying to reply on my phone

This is funny… sorry I couldn’t read all of it because of the different colors you used. But it is true that kids don’t care much for turkey…. This year, we will eat a prepared one and spend less time in the kitchen 🙂



I still don’t care much for turkey honestly….I’m sorry about you not being able to read it well…I was trying to make it easier to read 😦 I will try to do better in the future

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
