The first time I saw Braille on the drive-through ATM I laughed hysterically!

It reminded me of a window treatment company in my area that had a van which said, "Caution: Blind Man Driving."

Michele sent me this morning, Judy!

Tabor said...

Very clever. These would be great to save for a camp trip with teens! ??? I know, I know, the thought just came to me.

Hello, Michele sent me and I add have a great end to your week!

Tracie said...

Michele sent me! That is a classic list--great fun!

I'm detecting shades of Steven Wright in this writing. I'll re-read this list every time I need a little smile.

Delightful. Thanks Judy!

I did fine until the Little Mermaid one and then...well I just had to sit here and hold my head. LOLOLOL.... (can you do that>)

PI said...

Most of these are new to me . Brillant!

Chancy said...

Good ones. Thanks for the chuckles.

Mildred Garfield said...

When I started reading your list of sayings, I thought I'll tell Judy which ones I enjoyed the most -- can't do that, they were all terrific!!
