Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

If you Marry an Irish Girl:

The first man married a woman from Italy. He told her that she was to do the dishes and house cleaning.. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put


The second man married a woman from Poland . He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn’t see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a girl from Ireland. He ordered her to keep the house clean, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn’t see anything, the second day he didn’t see anything but by the third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. He still has some difficulty when he pees.

The information below was written by my husband and sent to all our boating friends on Tuesday. Here is part four, written by hubby, on this continuing saga.

The Saga of Old Dogs – Part IV

We are back from the Vet and had high hopes for weight gain and good liver numbers. Unfortunately, it is not the case.

Although she is up a pound, her main liver number the Dr. is concerned about is almost 6,000 now. I think the test is for ALT, or ALC. She was near 4,000 when she had the seizures when we boated to Village West, then for two months they came down to near 2,000. Now we have a sudden spike. We are doing all the things we can and the answer is simply “Old Dog.” She is now 12 years 6 months.

In doing a bit of Google it appears that with a spike it means rapid liver problems. So as long as she is not in pain, eating and pooping, all we can all do is love her as much as we can for the time left us all.

We are currently on a cruise for the Commodores Appreciation BBQ, for the International Order of the Blue Gavel (Delta District 19), and hubby and I have tons of work to do so we are going to be rather scarce until Sunday afternoon or Monday morning. Just want you to know why we’re not around.
