Friday Funnies

July 22nd, 2016

A strong high pressure system off the coast of Florida right now is called a ‘Bermuda High’. It’s a weather feature that forms in late summer brining extreme heat and humid air to Michigan. It’s working, whew!

I went to the backyard to cool off in the pool with my nephew and he exclaimed, “Aunt Tamara, you have cheese stilts!” After figured out what he meant I replied, “No, I’m not walking on string-cheese stilts. These are just my first bare legs of the season!” I really need to get some sun.

But let’s talk about the weather. It was wet and cool, now it’s sizzling hot. Besides if it didn’t change once in a while, nine tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation.

We use a really strong sunblock when we go to the beach with the kids. It’s SPF 80: You squeeze the tube, and a sweater comes out.

You might want to pack that sunscreen when you hit Florida beaches, but plan to leave fish cleaning to the fish mongers. While in the men’s room at a beach park in Florida, Dad noticed they had a plastic baby-changing table installed on the wall. Apparently, some sportsmen had co-opted this politically correct amenity for their own use. Above the table was a sign saying: “It is unlawful to clean fish on this table.”

It’s been raining so much in Ironwood that the Chia Pet I threw out when I left is now blocking my entire driveway.

Speaking of rain, Why does moisture destroy leather? When it’s raining, cows don’t go up to the farmhouse yelling, “Let us in! We’re all wearing leather! We’re going to ruin the whole outfit here!”

Whatever your weather, be safe and stay hydrated my friends.
