Cute jokes

Sometimes you hear a joke you just have to share..... here are 3 that made me laugh! Enjoy.

My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday.
He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 65.
My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"
***********************************************************************************
When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure."
"Look in your underwear, Grandma," he advised, "mine says I'm 4to 6."
***********************************************************************************
A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother,"Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today."
The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting," she said, "How do you make babies?"
"It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."
************************************************************************************
I KNOW you smiled reading them!

Cotton hat

Jackson usually does not like anything on his head but for some unknown reason he 'took' to my newly knit toque and modelled it for me..

Swimsuit fabric made into preemie hat....

I cut up this bathingsuit into strips and knit it into this preemie hat...
It's going to have to be one very very small preemie as the hat fits my
fist! Trying all sorts of new things lately..never a dull moment.

First Oil Painting


When we lived in small towns in Saskatchewan we had access to courses through
Parkland Community College. While stationed in Ituna, I took an oil painting class with Betty Robertson from Balcarres, Sask. My first painting was of Maligne Lake...
Years later, Janis' friend was vacationing in the Rockies and came across this postcard
and brought it back for me "I think this is a picture of your painting"...and it was...

I'm sure alot of you received the video thru email on "Our Canada" around July lst...the first picture on the video was this scene...
