Shirley~ those made me laugh so hard~ thanks for sending it in~

Tina~in_ut said...

Good Moaning, Sir~

MiChAeL™ said...

don't speak to me....

Morning you two....MICHAEL: Be nice, your friend was giving you a cheery Good Moaning!! Now go and hug her to start out the day.

Morning TINA: You need to go back to 51 and let me know about those Christmas cars.....I'm anxious to know the colors.

SHIRLEY: Very funny blog. Thanks for sending it in. The dog muzzle ....hmmm..maybe at times. I got a laugh out of all of them but liked the screw driver and the CD ones the best. I'm still thinking I could have used that dog muzzle when my kids were growing up a time or two. :)

I have been doing some online Christmas shopping yesterday and it kind of got me in the mood. Of course, listening to Christmas music for the last two weeks has helped too.

Tinka said...

Good Morning Michael and Tina. Is there trouble in Paradise?

Waiting for the cleaning lady. Then Jack and I have quite a few errands to make. We still don't have an attachment to carry the scooter so I guess it's the wheelchair for me today. The scooter fits in the Explorer but it is very heavy. There is such a different feeling riding the scooter rather than sitting in a wheelchair. I suddenly become my mother. It will be fun however to get some Christmas shopping done.


Shirley - Those warnings were very funny. I have seen others but none come to mind right now.

Have a happy, busy Tuesday everyone. See you tomorrow.

Zona said...

Good Morning!

SHIRLEY: Why do I have a feeling there were a lot of chocolate CD's placed in CD players..despite the warning? I've actually seen a friend put the car in gear with the sunscreen still in the window..Things that make you go hmmmm indeed..

MICHAEL: I thought TINA's morning salutation was quite polite.. :)

TINA: Uh oh..don't laugh too hard.. ;D

DI: In the mood for...what? woohoo!! ;D

TINKA: I hope you have a good time today..and that you get the scooter attachment for the car soon! Maybe Santa will bring it! :)

Have a good day everyone..it's going to be in the 70's here today..just beautiful..love this time of year!

Tinka said...

Good Morning Zona - Santa is too busy to make arrangements to get the attachment. That is the trouble. One of these days he will get to it.

Dianne - It looked like I missed you but we were typing at the same time. A good morning to you my friend.

Off we go.

Dianne/Denver said...

Zona--area 51---we dont call him t-bone-- we call him TEBOW

Hi Tink. Better get Santa on that scooter lift

Shirley, The warnings on packages always amaze me. You know the company must have been sued for them to have that particular warning on the package. As for how stupid people are...well maybe stress is involved. I can imagine a very stressed mom putting a muzzle on a child, especially a teenager. Not that I've ever tried it of course. :) I really can't imagine, however, anyone sleep drying his/her hair!

sacBarb said...

Dianne, looks like we had the same idea about the muzzle. Oh, btw, I think Zona knows what to call 'him.' :)

sacBarb said...

Zona, Why would anyone waste chocolate by putting it in the CD player???

sacBarb said...

Michael, Congrats on landing first today.

sacBarb said...

Dianne2, I have been praying that your daughter will get some good news from the doctor today.

••MiChAệL™ said...

Tim Tebow is hot....

••MiChAệL™ said...

usually those warnings come into play as a result of a lawsuit after some one has done exactly what they are now warning you not to do....

If that warning weren't there I think its a natural to think those screwdrivers are for inserting into the penis...

and you know that tampon thing has happened many times...remember toxic shock?

My fav is not using the 8-ball for a home PG test....

Just_Lin said...

Hi, HOoters!

Michael Good morning and what lovely legs you have.

••MiChAệL™ said...

and the "never use while sleeping" on hair dryers....

put this warning on those McCulloch chainsaws as well.

Just_Lin said...

Shirley Thanks for the laughs today. Being the skeptic I am (Right, Michael?), I think some of those are made up. I mean, really. Some of us may not be smarter than a 5th grader, but surely we're smarter than a 1st grader.

••MiChAệL™ said...

really though...I think the hair dryer warning is because of people using them for heaters...

••MiChAệL™ said...

lol@ J/L...

skeptical? Youuuuuu!!?

but seriously...are those not some Hercules legs!!?? O M G ! ! !

••MiChAệL™ said...

I like the "budgy-smuggler" he is wearing too!!

••MiChAệL™ said...

If lovin' him is wrong I don't wanna be right...

Just_Lin said...

Tina I'd wish you good moaning but it's now afternoon. Maybe tomorrow. ;)

••MiChAệL™ said...

hi Dianne...Tinka...SacBarb... Tuna...Zona...J/L...Skip...Muffy and Tuffy!

Just_Lin said...

Tinka I hope you have a grand day even if you have to ride in the wheelchair. I really hope you have that scooter attachment on the top of your Christmas list.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne I wish I could get enthused about the upcoming holiday but I just can't seem to.

Just_Lin said...

SacBarb A muzzle for a teenager! Brilliant idea! ;)

Just_Lin said...

Zona It's 51 here and I'm cold. I could use some of your Arizona weather about now.

Just_Lin said...

Michael LOL @ budgie smuggler!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Splat!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Afternoon Michael, Tina, Dianne, Tinka, Zona, SacBarb and Just Lin!!

Good Grief Tina couldn't you have made that picture bigger?! Lol! Scared the crap out of me when I open the blog!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

I hadn't thought about using the hair dryer for heat. That makes more sense than drying your hair while you sleep! I have actually used a hairdryer to warm my bed when I lived with my parents. We had wood stoves and if we were gone for a day or two my upstairs bed would get really cold. So I would turn my hairdryer on and warm up the sheets before getting in. It worked!

••MiChAệL™ said...

but if you fall asleep you may have a fire on your hands....blw dryers tend to overheat after a couple of hours...

I had one blow up in the salon once and flame up....of course I threw it when it blew....but the little propeller pieces were in my clients hair...

she liked the added volume...

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Michael I only had it on for 5 or 6 minutes, not 2 hours! That little sucker generated a lot of heat in those 5 or 6 minutes!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Thank you my fluttery friends for your comments on my blog! Glad it made you giggle!

••MiChAệL™ said...

made me laugh out loud....

anywho...I din't me u Shirley !! Setting your bed on fire!!

I meant in a situation where someone falls asleep....the dryer catches fire...and yeeeeoucch!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

I know Michael. I can see that happening cause those things do get very hot quickly! (like some people we know who shall remain nameless)

Maureen said...

SHIRLEY...those were funny.

Just_Lin said...

Hi Shirley How's your pizza? LOL

Just_Lin said...

MO Hi to you, too. Now that the veterinary clinic is closed, I have to go back to work and run the statements. :(

Just_Lin said...

Michael I bet people used to fall asleep under those old-fashioned bonnet type dryers.
