A Joke entitled Wedding Anniversary

The other day someone e-mailed me this joke about a wedding anniversary. I thought it was very funny. Judge for yourself.

Jerry was in trouble.

He forgot his wedding anniversary.

His wife was really angry.

She told him “Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in less than 6 seconds — AND IT BETTER BE THERE!!”

The next morning Jerry got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway.

Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house.

She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.

Jerry has been missing since Friday.

Thank goodness my anniversary didn’t go like this.

A tip on keeping frogs out of your yard

no toadAbout a week ago, my husband installed chicken wire around the bottom of the entire fence. We did this to keep our little dogs from running around the neighborhood. Well, since then, we have noticed that the chicken wire not only keeps the dogs in the yard, but it also keeps the frogs/toads out of the yard.

hardware clothYou can find the chicken wire (AKA Galvanized Hardware Cloth) for around $20 at your local hardware store. We got ours from Home Depot in the building materials department. It’s also available at Lowe’s in the outdoor garden department. We used the 1/2″ Galvanized Hardware Cloth in the 2′ x 25′ roll. This cloth can be purchased in varying heights and widths.

So, if you have a similar situation, this solution may work for you. If your situation is a little bit different, you may want to check out or tree frog hotels for other ideas.

How to dust a lampshade

lint rollerThe idea came to me the other night. I needed to clean my house and I didn’t have much time left, especially for dusting lampshades of all things. What if I used the lint roller, which I had just finished using on my shirt, to remove the dust from my smooth fabric lampshades. I thought it was worth trying, so I did and it worked wonderfully. I must say it was amazing how fast and easy it was to dust the lampshades. It took two minutes tops and I hesitate to say this, but I hadn’t dusted these lampshades in at least two years. So, next time you have to clean your lampshades, why not give this technique a try. I think you might agree it is so much better than a duster, a rag, or a vacuum cleaner.

Meet Jill

Last month, my family and I decided that Jack needed a companion. So, we got another puppy! She is an 8 month old long haired dachshund. She’s very cute and cuddly. But she had a stomach bug, which meant we had to give her lots of medicine. Here is a photo of Jill, the newest member of our family.

Doesn’t she look a lot like Jack?

Here is a photo of the two of them together.

I think they make a cute pair.
