The "For Lease Navidad" is a hoot! For some reason it took me a few seconds to understand the point, ... but it was worth the wait.

Nope. Only a week this time. Hoping for a month or so next year. It never turns out the way I'd like for it to turn out. I'm to busy to be away for to long. frown smile

You can say that again! The weather down there was lovely. We swim in the ocean on the Atlantic side for four days in a row. The waves were so nice that we could ride them with a boogie board which I did for about two hours. Or we can ride the waves body surfing. I love doing that. I'm 56 years old, my two sons are 22 and 25, but, I lasted longer than they did. They tired out before me. Good thing too because I was tired when they quit. Exhausted is more like it! But it wasn't long And I was back out doing it again. What fun!

If you think the Atlantic is cold this time of the year, you should try around here in the summer!

Maybe she did not pay her bills, and so her assets are being frozen. In this case, the piano!

Obviously a bun warmer is in order to thaw the frozen assets. Is there such a thing as a piano cozy?

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

Darn! There are candles in both pictures featuring the lady in the red dress, so I was sure I had it right. Then there are pictures of donkeys. I don't get it. What do donkeys have to do with candles? frown

I find a strange attraction to busty burros, however.

I'll just let you mule that over for awhile.

OK, I know when I'm outclassed. I'm gonna' go away and think up something really funny-like. I'll be back.

Don't hold your breath though. With my two watt brain this may take some time.

(I wonder if I was born blonde and got switched at birth.)
