You have got to be kidding me!!

How much will it cost the airline to install these ridiculous things and who's going to guard the door to make sure everyone pays up?

Sunday Funnies

A programmer was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess."
He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week."The programmer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you and do anything you want." Again the programmer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess that I'll stay with you for a week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

The programmer said, "Look, I'm a programmer. I don't have time for a girlfriend -- but a talking frog, now that's cool!"

Sunday Funnies

Heard this little song the other day and now it's stuck in my head. It's fun and lighthearted so I figured I'd post it here for your amusement.

Great send off

My aunt's service was wonderful!! I think she would have been very happy with how we celebrated her life and how much we enjoyed hanging out with each other. Many people in the family were involved in the service, either through speaking, singing, putting together the bulletins or slide shows. Many of her friends and neighbors spoke up as well and told how kind and hospitable she always was. She loved us all deeply and it was just the right thing, that we were the ones that said farewell to her the way we was a service I'll always remember because it was so full of love.

One of my aunt's very dear friends sang this song at the end of the service. It was PERFECT and I only wish we'd had a recording of it because it was so beautiful and heartfelt. I truly think she captured what my aunt would have said to all of us...

Love Jesus and love one another....

My aunt died suddenly yesterday. I'm heartbroken and I'm going to miss her something fierce. Tonight's hard. Feeling like I'm grieving a whole lot more than just her passing. Feels like I'm crying out all the grief of the last 20 years or so...hurts like hell frankly.

A few years back, when I was living in Seattle, things got a bit rough. I felt like a lost little kid without direction about where to go next. My aunt sent me a little picture book with a CD of this song attached. It was a great gift and a true blessing (I don't use that word lightly) to me. Gave me hope when things looked pretty bleak...That's just how she was.

Damn, I'm going to miss her!!
