I never get tired of reading some of these. I have actually seen some of the funniest ones in Japan when I was there.

Dear Patty ~ Very funny ones and I have finally caught up with all your posts.They are all good and very funny. I especially liked the cash register girl trying to charge for the divider. That is so funny.
There are always plenty of chores to do and computer time does get less. I am so slow at doing most things these days. I am sorry your life has become so busy. I can't smell the fresh sheets either, but I know they are clean and fresh.
Take great care my friend, Love, Merle.
