Got a good reason For taking the easy way out



A woman was walking down the street when she was accosted by a
particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked her for A couple of dollars for dinner.
The woman took out her bill fold, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money,
will you buy some wine with it instead of Dinner?"
"No," I had to stop drinking years ago, the homeless woman replied.
"Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?" the woman Asked.
"No, I don't waste time shopping" the homeless woman said. "I need to Spend all my time trying to stay alive."
"Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?" the woman Asked.
"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless woman. "I haven't had my hair done In 20 years!"
"Well," said the woman, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead,
I'm going to take you out for dinner with my hubby and myself tonight."
The homeless Woman was astounded. "Won't your husband be furious with
You for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty Disgusting."
The woman replied, "That's okay. It's important for him to see what a Woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and Wine."



I'm into my 3rd week of handing out Halloween treats!
This week the 'treat' will be this; a cute little vampire 'vanting to share some candy vith you'!!

Each day up until Halloween [October 31st]
I will be handing out
a treat for 1 - 5[one to five] bloggers who drop by
during the week for visiting.
You're more than welcomed to pass it along
to ones you think are deserving of a special treat
for the season.
Kinda like "Pay it Forward"
Y'know, one goodwill gesture deserves another?
But DON'T just choose your friends
making this cliquish and 'just groupies'...
Make NEW friends by choosing random visitors!!!

It seems that 'awards' are floating around blogland
and just "blog friends" get chosen all the time.
Make it RANDOM!!

If you do decide to share it with others
link it back to my blog and
explain where the idea originated.

    "Witch Way"
    "Reapers Run"

    "Spooky Place"

    (my ww is up, but turned out to be not so wordless.)

  43. Woot, woot! I think I have to go to the salon now and have my hair done! Don't want to go "Witch Way", teehee.

    Nice one, Anni. Btw, I was given one of your Sweet Treat and I handed it over to some blogger and I linked you, of course, :)

    And now I see some of them made comments in this post: Marcia, Sandy.

  44. I love halloween decorations.

    We have some, outside, and I keep meaning to buy more generic fall things, so I can just take down the halloween parts and leave the rest til it's time to do Christmas decorations, but I never manage it.

    Have I mentioned that I love your blog, as well?

  45. That's a fun sign you have there, Witch way and Reaper's Run"...too funny. Although I think Halloween is a fun experience for the kiddos, I don't promote it on my blog. So no need to include me on your list of possible recipient. Have a great WW!!

  46. Thanks for stopping by.

    The pay it forward thing seem interesting.

  47. Very nice! I used to make holiday lawn deco out of plywood. Halloween has always been one of my favorites!

    Aside: I'll be rooting for the Rockies... only because my team lost. Would have loved to see the Indians and the Rockies in the series.

    The Indians, where I was raised, are my Dad's side of the family. The Rockies are my Mom's side of the family

  48. LOL, great photo (and joke)! Happy WW :)

  49. baaaaaaad joke!!! LOL You are so halloween-y it's putting me to shame!

  50. Thats a really great sign :-)

  51. I once did the same.

    - I had to move afterwards to a goshtly place. That was awful.

    But luckely my shrink found out: give him a PC - and he will never be put into troublle again-

    Until reading this.
