I Made a Funny

On a pellet forum, the question was, "I have been meaning to start this thread to get an idea what folks burned this year versus last year and how many pellets you may have left over for next year."

My answer, which got several "likes" and laughter emoji's:

I know I burned 6+ tons last winter. Let's see, this winter: I started with 5.3 tons. I purchased 5+6+27+15 and a few others probably - let's call it a 1.2 of individual bags. Then I bought 11 tons this spring. I currently have 12.7 tons. So 5.3+1.2+11 = 17.5. Subtract 12.7 and I get (hold on, I have to grab a cat because I ran out of fingers and toes, just gotta remember they only have 4 to a pad :rolleyes:) - umm 4.8 tons used so far this season. (Math is hard for this old brain !!!)

Then someone pointed out that cats have 5 on their front paws if you count the dewclaws. Then I remembered that Fuzzy has extra toes, so I would be in trouble if I grabbed him first.

Probably had to be there, but a few people got a smile from my answer

Thanks to Cop Car, I have found a completely useless, but fascinating theory on my name. If I use my former married name, I am the only person in the US with that name. And, there are only 164 people with that last name at all. I must know at least 20% of those people. I will admit that the spelling is a non-common variation and if I put in an alternate spelling, the instances rise.

However, what I do find funny (and perhaps accurate) is that according to the graphic, there are 1 or fewer. If I was the only person with that name on Dec 31, 2014 as of Jan 1, 2015, no one has it.

Logo There are
or fewer people with my name in the U.S.A.
How many have your name?

Now that I have gone back to my maiden name, it seems there are 188 people that would respond if it was called over the loudspeaker.

people with my name in the U.S.A.
How many have your name?

Of course this is non-scientific, not claimed to be accurate, and just uses statistics to estimate those numbers, so this means absolutely nothing except I had something to post.

Humor for the day

Seen on one of those electronic speed limit signs in Hillsboro, in a 30 MPH zone (it may, or may not, have been directed at me)


OMG Dude - Slow Down

This isn't NASCAR

Who says the cops have no sense of humor?

Funniest Thing for a Long Time

Went with STBX to sign some paperwork pertaining to the old house this morning. When we were leaving the bank, he turned on his MP3 player. The first words sung to come out:

"He lies right at you, you know you hate that game . . ." (from Only Women Bleed by Alice Cooper).

He couldn't change the song fast enough. Made my day!

That Feeling


That feeling when a cop follows

I never get a cop follow me all the way home - after all, I (used to) travel 2 states, 3 counties and about 13 towns between home and work. But still, a sheriff has followed me a good long ways and even though I'm not doing anything wrong (well, duh, not speeding with him behind me), I get all nervous.

Walking the Dog

Coming home the other day, I got behind someone out for a "stroll" with his dog. I know it is hard to see, but the dot to the left of the truck is a medium-large dog.

Exercising the Dog

I remember when we used to exercise our huskies this way.

Map Sharing

The Weekend Pundit has a great map that details the United States in a whole different way than what you are probably used to. No, it isn't politcal, so go look!

Tractor Attraction

I wonder if WS and the neighbor saw this before they bought the backhoe - LOL

Tractor price
Christine, our friend from Arizona, sent this to my FB page (but she said it should apply for another friend of ours).

Girl Having Fun

Thanks to Ruth for posting this. And by the way, while watching, turn on the speakers - the music goes well with the video!
