Friday Funny... err Saturday Silly?? Best kijiji Ad Ever

Sorry guys, I didn't abandon y'all!  I've just had a lot on my plate (and mind) lately.  So, almost two hours into Saturday (oops), I give you your Friday Funny:

Best kijiji ad ever!
Ad ID: 89362287 Location: Halifax Date Listed: 22-Nov-08
FREE TO GOOD HOME   After two long years of being on a waiting list for an agility dog, we have been notified by the breeder that, at long last, our number has come up and ...WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!!!   We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't be fair to the children. Since our little puppy will be arriving on Monday we MUST place the children this weekend! They are described as:   One male - His name is Tommy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Temperament tested. Does have problems with peeing directly in the toilet. Has had Chicken Pox and is current on all shots. Tonsils have already been removed. Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained & gets along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little training he should be able to read soon.   One female - Her name is Lexie, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), strawberry blonde hair, green eyes quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperament tested but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, tonsils out, and is very healthy & can be affectionate. Gets along well with other little girls & little boys but does not like to share her toys and therefore would do best in a one child household. She is a very quick learner and is currently working on her house training - shouldn't take long at all.   We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right for them; that is why we contacted a rescue group. But we simply can no longer keep them. Also, we are afraid that they may hurt our new puppy.   I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a real emergency here!!! They MUST be placed in rescue by Sunday night at the latest or we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or along some dark, country road. Our priority now has to be our new puppy.   Sounds just as ridiculous when you have to "rehome" your dog!!

Friday Funny ~ Marriage around the world

Three friends married women from different parts of the world..... 

The first man married a Greek girl. He told her that she was to do the dishes and house cleaning.
It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away. 
  
The second man married a Thai. He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking.
The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done, and there was a huge dinner on the table. 
  
The third man married a girl from Canada . He ordered her to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal.
He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything either but by the third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye and his arm was healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. He still has some difficulty when he pees.

Goodbye Big Guy :(

Last week my mom & stepdad had to make the tough call and put down their St. Bernard, Mack.
He had developed some health problems over the winter.  Mom & B gave him lots of love and let him enjoy his days until it was time.  Over the last few weeks it was becoming apparent that Macaroni's  time was running out.
I'll miss seeing him wander our backyard when they visit, and he was such good company for our Comet.
He was such a sweet dog, a gentle giant and will be missed by all who knew him. Good bye Macaroon :(

Friday Funny ~ Taxi Driver

Bernard Lind was retired but took odd jobs to make a little extra money.  One of his jobs was a taxi driver.

The cab company had a sign posted in all their cars saying, "Your driver is: ____"

Bernie always got a kick out of watching his rider's reactions when they read, "Your driver is: B.LIND."

I'm here!

I haven't really posted much lately... well there's been the Wordless Wednesday, Friday Funny, and Sunday Stills, but not a "real" post, a post talking about what's going on with things here.  Between being struck down with creeping crud and trying to work I haven't had a lot to say. 
Pie had his appointment with the specialist on Tuesday.  We gave his history, he had some more tests done, then he got referred to 2 more specialists (ear/nose/throat and an allergist) as well as had more tests requested, another breathing test (it will be the 3rd), the CT (the one that still hasn't been done) and a sleep study.  He has been feeling a lot better lately and the specialist we saw said that his lungs sound good at this time.

Today was gorgeous, I had some "me time" free and I'm feeling much better so out the door I went!
Take a look at the pic below, can you tell what I did?
Those are Voodoo's footprints, I went for a ride!  Voodoo and Applejack were out in the pasture when I went out to get ready but moseyed in when I whistled.  I've left the gate from their pen to the sacrifice pasture open so they could go out there if they want to.  Lately they have been out there pawing the snow to the bits of grass poking through.  Maybe its a spring fever thing?  The colts are doing the same in their pen.  Even though everyone has nice bales of hay they're scrubbing around for grass lol.
That's knee deep snow the big guys trudge through to get out to the pasture:
There's nowhere with good enough footing to ride here so I'm stuck ditch riding still.  The pastures are good enough to ride, I just can't get into them!  So down the road we went.  I was pretty impressed with my boy.  He's had most of the winter off and the only time he's been ridden off the yard here is to go down our driveway, down the teeny stretch of road to Tom's and down his driveway to the indoor so I wasn't too sure how he'd react.
When I swung up in the barnyard he was a bit antsy but once we headed down the driveway he settled down.  I kept it to a walk and it was sooo nice.  He just levelled out his neck and walked out with that nice, easy walk that swings your hips.
It was nice to be out on a ride, soaking up some spring sunshine.  The only noise was the creak of leather, the soft thud of Voodoo's hooves on the sandy edge of the road and the drone of our only company:
We didn't go very long, only about a half hour.  When I got back Voodoo rolled in his pen and then he and Applejack headed back out to the pasture:
Cessa gets quite upset when the boys leave their pen.  You'd think she was the only one left instead of having 2 colts in the pen right next to her and Rootbeer and George in the pen directly across from her.  She picks at her food while they're gone and calls and CALLS
She's looking pretty good though, other than the scruffy spring coat :)

I'm going to be riding a lot more in the next while, I've signed up for 2 clinics between now and the end of May, a Molly Powell barrel clinic and a Dave Manning clinic... might take one of the colts to that for some groundwork.

The other kinda horsepower

Over the last couple days a few of my blogger pals have been posting about the other horsepower... automobile horsepower, BEC and her honey got some sweet new rides (yes, 2 cars!) and Lytha was posting about her dream cars. 
Then I realized, I don't think I've ever shown you guys MY car... Dream car that is lol

A '68 Camaro SS.  This car just makes me drooool.  I'd like this paint job shown here too, or a custom paint job that would be a really dark purple, almost black and either this stripe or racing strips from hood to trunk.
Don't worry, I'd only get that custom paint if the paint was NOT original and in good condition.  To paint over good original paint, that would almost be sacrilege!!

Friday Funny courtesy of damnyouautocorrect.com

Have you heard of damnyouautocorrect?  Its my new guilty pleasure... its a site that people send their failed text messages too, most of them as a result of autocorrect on iPhone it seems. 
I think I'll stick with my Blackberry, seems that iPhone has a pretty filthy mind.  So there you are, you've been warned, most of these are NOT 'clean'.  I thought I'd share a few with you, I may have a bit of a sick sense of humour but some of these made me laugh so hard I was crying.
