Don,

Just now noticed your comment about your daughter going up steps one at a time. She may still have restrictions on bending the leg page 90 degrees. And that leg is still going to be quite weak. It felt SO weird trying to walk up steps one at a time when I first tried, and I think I only made it up about half the stairs before going back to one step at a time. But I'm doing well now! Stairs are definitely one of those things that just take some time, though.

Thanks Cat! I sometimes enjoy writing dumb humor. It sorta takes the edge off...ya know what I mean? Me and Far Side's Gary Larson woulda got along great.

Long time no see. Many of the old porch sitters have left the building for places unknown. Haven't seen Old Blue around here lately, either. He was a good plate licker after we finished off the goodies.

Sorry, I already have that one (unopened in the box), as well as calendars of previous years.

The guy's got talent!

A million bucks? That sounds about right.

It sounds like I've missed some great chuckles. I shall have to go hunting on the internet to see that boneless chicken farm. That does sound hysterically funny. :thankssign

Oh my! I just realized and went to check for sure. One of my brothers gave me a Larson (I didn't connect it to the Far Side) cartoon, framed, to hang in my bathroom! In it, a restaurant full of people are turning to look at a man walking out of the men's room...because the sign over the door has flashing red lights surrounding it and an alarm bell ringing. The sign reads, "Didn't wash hands!"

Of course, conscientious nurse that I am, I'm always after everybody in my house to "wash your hands, now!" Which is why my doctor brother had to poke some fun at me. Believe me, I did laugh, too. :lol:

Okay, here's my search results. Scroll down this blogger's site and you will find the "boneless chicken ranch" cartoon:

Now, I must leave all this fun and get myself back to at least look like I'm working! :P

Just wondering...

Do boneless chickens lay eggs with no shells? Ponder that one!

:lol:

I was going to say, Ooops, DJ beat me to it, but my link does show the cartoon in color. :wink:

Don, I'm having the same problem with FaithWriters being as slow as molasses, too. Do you suppose it's all the banner messages we have to wait through?

Yes!!! I have also thought it was the banner messages FW is now stuffed with, but I guess it was a management decision to do it that way.

It's so frustrating! Most times when the loading is too slow, I leave FW and go to other sites. In my opinion, the slowness would discourage many from coming here again. That's not a very good way to attract or keep new people for FW.

I have fast computers, but this is ridiculous.

I thought I would share my updated "Top 10 Persons Not Liked" list with the porch sitters. Number one on the list is the worst of all, and the last one is bad, but tolerated. Then, decending down the list are the "almost worst" to the "pretty bad".

#1 Doctors, clinics, hospitals

#2 Dentists

#3 Lawyers

#4 Scammer phone callers

#5 Telemarketers

#6 Unknown/recorded-message phone callers

#7 Pushy, obnoxious, know-it-all people

#8 Door to door salesmen

#9 Wrong-number phone callers

#10 80% of my neighbors

Actually, there wasn't much updating to do. The list is the same as it was last year, and the year before, and five years ago. Well, there's always next year for a possible change.

Particularly when we paid to use the site. When I pay for access to a site, I don't like to have ads flashing at me non-stop.

Hmmm, Don, I think I'd replace Doctors with Politicians.
