Got a good reason For taking the easy way out




~THURSDAY THIRTEEN
edition #48


For my Thursday Thirteen this week, I've made 13 new headers for the meme. They're all sized the same...375 pixels by 200 pixels [they are all watermarked by me]. These are just thumbnails. To get the larger version, click and then save. Grab as many as you wish...they're made for you. Enjoy!!!
















~...end Thursday 13
[all done with PSP Pro and collected tubes]


<><><>

If you read my blog often enough, you will remember just recently I bought a new microwave oven since my 20 year old one died on me. Guess what? The NEW one died on me. I was popping some popcorn and it just stopped working. Well, I tested the socket again, and it works...I tested it with my hand mixer. But, to be on the safe side, I'm having an electrician come in and check the wiring. For peace of mind. But I finally DID get my popcorn to snack on. LOL 'Cause I took the one I just bought back, got a refund and went back to the ovens and got another one. Different brand tho.

<><><>

How 'bout a joke?

1] A man was in his front yard mowing grass, when his attractive blonde female neighbor, Judy, came out of her house and went straight to the mailbox. She opened it, then slammed it shut and stormed back into the house.

A little later she came out of her house again, went to the mail box, and again opened it and slammed it shut again. Angrily, back into the house she went.

As the man was getting ready to edge the lawn, she came out again, marched to the mail box, opened it and then slammed it closed harder than ever.

Puzzled by her actions the man asked her, "Is something wrong?"

To which she replied, "There certainly is! My stupid computer keeps saying, YOU'VE GOT MAIL."

- - -

...and a tongue twister? [say out loud now]

I slit the sheet - the sheet I slit - and on the slitted sheet I sit.

  12. Good Evening/Morning Anni,
    Oh my goodness, those headers are just beautiful. You do such a great job on everything you do. You are quite an artist. I know the people who do the Thursday 13 will really appreciate them. I have seen that joke about the blonde before. It is just too funny and it is something only a blonde would do. LOL. Oh my goodness, I said the tongue twister out loud and messed up. ROFLMBO. That was a good one there. On my computer I checked for a program to use for the Sand Bottle, but I still couldn't find anything. It could be on there but under another name of some kind. Take care my friend and have a great evening/day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  24. Wow -- these are wonderful T-13 headers and you're so generous to offer them to those of us who are just learning the ropes. Which reminds me ... thanks again for the info about Paint. I actually created a message on the "bottle" and intend to post it on one of my blogs soon. For some reason I can't copy yours this morning because nothing happens when I right click, but I'll figure that one out and return later.

    Sorry about the microwave hassles. Hope the new one works for you. Thanks for the chuckles too ... I love laughter!
    Hugs and blessings,

  28. How nice of you to make all these TT logos ! I always use my cat Arthur with his funny poses. No luck with your new Micro Wave, that happens we say that it is a "Monday" production when something breaks after a very short while. BTW how do you make pop corns in the micro wave ? I have never done it I always used a pot but I think it's far quicker and easier in a micro wave. Do you put it in a special plastic pot or something ??

  29. I appreciate your visit to Small Reflections this morning and the ‘heads up’ about Java controls. (I actually don’t know what they are, but I did find and turn them off. I’m wondering if I need to turn them back on for any reason now). The things I don't know are massive, but I'm glad I've learned to ask questions. Turning off the Java controls worked beautifully and now I know one more thing. Thanks for helping a new blogger out.
    Hugs and blessings,

  38. What beautiful headers. I will take a couple and reference you as the creator. Sure wish we lived close so you could teach me PSP. I am just learning about tubes and how easy they can make your work.

    I did my first TT 13 this week and copying what a lot of folks are doing. Starting the the abc's. Hope you can stop by.

  44. Hi, this is a blast of a post.

    First, how to choose among all these wondeful headers? I might use one by one and then repeat after 13 weeks?

    Micro oven: Moral: Be patient and prepare proper food.

    The joke: Hillarious. I've allready forwared to a bunch of friends (non-bloggers with reference to your blog). Hope that's OK?

    Have a great weekend

  45. These are so great! If I could figure out how to use them, I definitely would, and send some folks your way!

    Such gorgeous Thursday Thirteen buttons you've made...of course you know I love the faerie one:-) Makes me want to join Thursday Thirteen! lol I'm slowly learning how to use my Corel Paint Shop Pro program and have downloaded tons of tubes already...it's so much fun learning.

    ROFL at that joke!!! Now that was too funny! LOL Love it! We poor blondes. hehe

    As for that tongue twister....I've never said "shit" so many times in one sentence! LOL

    Take care my friend. Love ya! xoxo

  50. Anni, I just love your choice for Thursday Thirteen, because I love all the headers you made. You are so smart to be able to make things like this.

    Thank you for allowing others to take the ones they like to be used on their own blog. That is so sweet of you.

    I'll be taking each of these as I love them all. I hope that's okay, and thank you again.
