My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Funny for Friday...

I may be a soft sell today, but it gave me a chuckle. And it's oh so true!!

(Though I am feeling sorry for my friends in Florida the past couple of days - it's really really cold for you guys!! In the morning...)

Which reminds me - when we lived in Jacksonville, folks were telling me all of the time how cold it got there in the winter... And I was thinking it had to be total BS! So I asked a friend (from Saskatoon Canada) who had been living there for some time what the deal was, and as she put it while rolling her eyes... "Rich, sometime in February you will find yourself wearing socks with your birkenstocks - that's about it."

So - from the email bag...
