Funny Friday - June 2014

June Funny Friday

Today’s post is June’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

3. What do you want from Taco Bell, again?

4. Wait a minute, let me get this down... "Sweet land of liberty".

Hi, everyone!! I know, I know... I haven't been around much lately. Give me about a month and I promise I will be back to posting like normal. I miss it. :(

Anyway, here's another edition of Fly on the Wall for your enjoyment! 


We were taking a very long road trip and trying not to be bored so we were playing a game on Deanna's tablet. I think it was the DK Quiz Game. Anyway, I was driving, Deanna was reading the questions (multiple choice) and Joshua and I were trying to guess the answers.
She asked a question and then said all of this : zaggamaggataggaquagga
Joshua thought that was all one choice and hilarity ensued. Maybe you just had to be there. Or maybe we were just overly tired.... 


So we are staying in a hotel for a while and you know how the phones are, the old push button types. I wish I could have taken a video of Deanna trying to figure it all out! PRICELESS!!! 
Deanna - You have to put this part back down on the those things in order to use the phone again!!!


We were in the hotel room for only a couple of hours and had to call maintenance twice.
1st time - Colin put a Wii game in the safe and we couldn't get it open.
2nd time - Colin clogged up the toilet.
He has clogged it up at least 3 more times since then....


Cailey - Men are like wild monkeys.
Yes, dear they are.... Although, she never said WHY she thought that.


We were at the pool with some friends of ours when I commented on how bad Deanna's breath was. 
Me - What did you EAT?? My gosh!
Deanna - It's not that bad!
Me - Oh, yes it is!
Deanna - Will someone smell my breath??
Nicky - I will...... OMG! Sami, it smells like that sock you found at the bottom of the lake!


Deanna - Colin, wake up!
Colin - I wasn't asleep.
Deanna - Then you heard the awesome things we were talking about.
Colin - No, I guess I was asleep.


The wifi here is TERRIBLE!!! It's giving me such a headache!! 

Here are a few pictures to show you what we've been up to.

We've mostly been doing the 2nd set. ;)

Don't forget to buzz around all the awesome Fly posts!!!

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.

Your words are: Bread ~ Eye Candy ~ Fountain ~ Renegade ~ Summer
They were submitted by: http://www.healingtomato.com   

So I thought I would do something a little different with this one. Hopefully it will work out... I haven't tried this kind of thing since I moved my blog and I'm not sure how well it will go. Fingers Crossed!!!!!

I am going to take each word and give you a video for it!! Fun??? 

Bread -


Eye Candy -


Fountain -


Renegade - 


Summer - 


In Wordpress I knew how to give the video. Not sure if this will give you the actual video or just a link... I guess I'll find out when you do! 

Hope you had fun!!!

Your prompt is: If you were granted three wishes by a genie, with the guideline that they must only benefit strangers, what are your wishes?
It was submitted by: http://berghamchronicles.blogspot.com 

OHHH! I LOVE this prompt!! I don't even have to think about it, at least not much! 

Wish Number 1 -

No more hunger!!! That qualifies, right???
When you think about all the waste that goes on in the world today, it really shouldn't take a genii to make this work!!!

Here are a just a few ways that you can help!

Wish Number 2 -

Everyone must obey the Golden Rule!!
Do unto others!!!!
Treat everyone like you would like to be treated!!
Is it really so hard to put yourself in someone else's shoes and think about how they might feel????? Climb down off that holier-than-thou, better than you high horse! People are people no matter where they come from, their race, their gender, their religion (or lack thereof), gay or straight, old or young, haves and have-nots. Everyone has feelings!!! Words DO hurt!!! Think before you speak, type or act!! How will what you say or do make someone else feel???? 

Wish Number 3

OK, so far I've taken care of hunger and the way people treat each other and really, with those 2 things taken care of, there's not much left! What's next???

Now, I will admit that all those wishes would also benefit me as well but I think I got the gist of it.

How'd I do??

I could think of one more... We can get rid of bad music! Think about it! No more Ke$ha!! No more Beiber or One Direction!! Bye-bye Nickelback!!
