As Will Smith says in Men in Black....
"This is the best of the best of the best!!" Here we are, lazing on the beach, enjoying the scenery, the sounds, the salt air! We sat up our beach chairs to spend a few hours on the sand while reading our books...taking in some rays, listening to the surf lull us into relaxation...just making the most of the warm sun. After a while, I get up to move around, walk some along the beach. I walk for about half n hour, and turn around to return and read more. As I approach where we parked, ummmmm....I walk up on this guy who looked familiar! Was he snoring? Yes indeedy!!!! So much for the beautiful sea.... And, shhhhhh, he doesn't know I posted this of him. I'll get into so much trou-u-u-u-ble!! Hehehehe. Ask me if I care. If I had a dollar each time I ticked him off with my silly antics, I'd be rich. Rich, I tellya!!!

What happens in blogland....STAYS in blogland, right?!! I got your word on it?!! I see you shaking your head with a positive motion in agreement!!! [Wait! I do see some of you with your fingers crossed! No fair!!]

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and lose), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM." He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't come to wake him up, when he noticed a piece of paper by his bedside. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

    As for being cold - we've been freezing the last two days and it's been in the 40s and 50s - it seems so much colder than that. I can imagine how cold you must feel!

  28. Love your new header! And your secret is safe with me! LOL wish I could enjoy the beach with you and the sleeping Hubs!

  29. LOL! I loved the photo ( why do men sleep with their mouths open?) and the joke!

    I've visited Corpus Christi -- beautiful bay and a nice aquarium there.

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  30. Anni,

    Your new fall look is gorgeous. Your blog is always in tune with the seasons.

    Love the photo of Bud taking some Zzzzs. I promise not to tell. I do the same thing to Dwight. He doesn't know half the photos I post of him on here. He would have a FIT. LOL What they don't know won't hurt them.

    Glad you two got out to do a bit of sun basking and reading.

    It's been nice here the last couple of days, but quite humid. This is more like summer than the weather we had in July. However, the leaves are beginning to turn and there is evidence of fall everywhere. Come up here in a couple of months and you will think 50 is warm. By then it should be around zero or less.

    Take care and thanks for sharing the joke. It made me chuckle.


  31. I wear shorts when it's in the 50's because I think that's warm enough! LOL I guess with the old "power surges", they keep me warm enough!!! Sheesh! I'm always hot, what can I say. *snicker* hehe

    Awww mannnnn, you could see me cross my fingers??? Ok, ok, I swear I won't tell Bud you posted a picture of him sleeping on the beach...honest...whistling innocently.

    ROFL love that joke, nope men are not equipped for these kind of contests at all! lol xoxo

  32. You better come and visit Michigan. It's sunny and warm here today - mid 70's.
    I'll never tell - you keep my secrets and I'll keep yours! Love the story too!
