Other Exciting Gifts from Seattle

When I blogged about the lovely things I received from Mrs Tantrum in Seattle-ish, I had a feeling I'd forgotten a few things. And so I had.

Look at this cool fridge magnet - the pictures are, as always, poxy, so I may have to tell you that this says, "The only green vegetables I get are olives." Pretty funny. Sonny Ma-Jiminy asked me what it said and thence roamed the house repeating it over and over, pronouncing it "venchtables" as he usually does.

This most-cool fridge magnet now sits beside this one that Crazy Sister gave Mr de Elba for Christmas, saying ...

and this one she gave to me, which says "I gave up jogging because my thighs kept rubbing together & setting my pantyhose on fire."

And now check this one out ...

Nobody's ever given me tinned bacon (smoke flavor added) before! I think this may be why I get a little note in the box saying that the package had been opened by customs, but as tinned meat is okay to bring into the country, it now sits proudly on my bench, waiting for an occasion when tinned bacon may come in handy!

Thankyou Mrs Tantrum! I love them!

Love the fridge magnets - very cool.

I do have a question though - what exactly does tinned bacon look like exactly? and what does it taste like?

I was going to reply to your comment, but don't think it will get to you that way.

Mick was 8 lbs 7 oz. He was 20 3/4" in length -- so he was a little chunk!!! Thanks for stopping by!

The fridge magnets would make me smile every day! It's the littlest things that make us happy, isn't it?

Ah fridge mags, the modern place for our equivilent to Haiku and limerick, perhaps wisdom, definately humour.

My fav of my daughter's - "You have two choices for dinner - take it or leave it."

ON my fridge _ "I took the road less traveled-Now WHERE THE HELL AM I?"

Or how about: "Latte is french for you paid too much for that coffee"
(particularly appropriate here in the US-Pacific North West, birth place of Starbucks coffee)

Ok, follow up, my favorite Haiku:

Haiku are just great.

But they don't always make sense

My favorite magnet has two nuns on it. One looks at the other and says

"What are you going to wear tomorrow?"

Cracks me up every time!
