A little help today from a friend.

I tried to get to sleep last night but my oldest dog is deathly afraid of anything that goes bang or boom.  You know like gun shots, fireworks, or like last night, thunder.  She shook so hard I couldn't get to sleep.  We have had beautiful weather, but that changed fast.  We are getting some badly needed rain, but we didn't need the huge drop in temperature.  It went from 80 degrees down to the low 40's.  A little cool for this time of year.

My good friend in Pennsylvania sent me an email containing such wisdom and humor I just have to share it with you all.  I needed a good subject for today's blog and she gave me the subject and the contents all in one package, so here it is:

16. If you jump off a Paris bridge, you are in Seine.

17. When she saw her first strands of gray hair, she
thought she'd dye.

19. Acupuncture: a jab well done.

20. Marathon runners with bad shoes suffer the agony
of de feet.

21. The roundest knight at king Arthur's round table
was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi.

but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian.

25. No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still
be stationery.

26. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was
cited for littering.

27 Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.

28. A hole has been found in the nudist camp wall. The
police are looking into it.

29. Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

Then it hit me.

31. A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center said:
