Dear Patty ~~ It is nice to be back on the air again after two days off.
Thanks for your comments and I was relieved to know the three small Kidney stones had not grown. I am glad you had time with your Mother, and then got your lawns mowed. I hope the allergies are not too bad.
I enjoyed your list of interesting facts. Some are quite amazing. Take care, dear Patty, Love, Merle.

I never knew that about the thumb. I bet there's a cover-up going on by the short-thumbed fellas, lol.

Funny trivia, Mrs. L!

Thanks for your visit and nice comment about my post re: My Mother. I appreciate it. I visit your and all of Mr. L's blogs daily, but rarely leave comments.

Each of your posts is enjoyed very much.

Interesting, stuff, Patty! Funny, to boot! LOL.

My younger son was here yesterday and today, and we spent most of our time at the cabin on the river. So I've been kind of out of circulation. But we took advantage of the beautiful weather.

Reading Merle's blog, I'm sorry your allergies have been acting up. Hope you're feeling better. Have a good night!


PS. Got to go and soak my feet in Germ X now! LOL.

Guess all of us gals will be looking at men's thumbs now! I always heard to look for a man with long fingers! LOL Isn't it funny the things that go around! Lots of other interesting things on that list, though.

I'm going to send that one off to my email fiends! I have one old guy who loves things like that...he sent me an email one time which stated to keep the jokes coming cause his Banjo Club loved them. He's in his 90's. Nice that those ole guys can still have some fun with jokes, though. I know he'll love this one!!!
