    Picnic Thursday #533.

    Time to take a blanket out and have a picnic.

    -----------

    I think some sandwiches, noodle and potato salad and some lemonade and ice tea sound good.

    The weather has been warm - a little too humid - but nice enough to think about being outdoors after a prolonged winter season.

    ------------

    Will someone bring a ball so we can play catch with the Orc and Angel?

    DONE.

    A non-meat sandwich if you have, some of that salad, and some ice tea, please!

    Not unless someone brought along a fire extinguisher.....

    A picnic by the pond sounds like just the thing. THe weather should be great the next few days, just got to watch out for the twitterpated frogs!

    QoP, I hope that's A DURABLE frisbee!

    I love picnics! Shrimp salad and a nice crisp Sauvignon Blanc!

    Pinot wants to know if she can come and bring friends.

    Oh, yes! A picnic! I'm drinking iced tea right now- would anyone like some with me?

    Cassie wouldn't like to go outside, but she would like to sit in the open window, sniff the air, and hear all the different sounds. She will do that for a couple of hours if the weather is fine.

    And now, a joke from one of my niece's students:
    Why do hummingbirds hum? Because they don't know the words. (apparently this second-grader thinks this is the Funniest Joke Ever)
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!


    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    THey must have the same joke books my kids do... I've threatened to burn them several times.

    How about some burgers on the grill? Nice overcast afternoon out here, perfect for grilling!I'll get them going, someone else man the taps and keep Angel away from the grill? She still doesn't comprehend that hot things are BAD for puppy noses.

    How's about an egg salad sandwich and some potato on the side and an ice tea?

    Done?

    Karen,
    Why can't you have both?

    DONE!

    LH,

    Lawn darts, horseshoes and a tire swing on a frayed rope that the Orc tied?

    Am I scared to get on? A frayed knot!

    I'll fire up the grill to get a start....

    Done!
    PM,

    Oh my, a nice shrimp salad and a glass of SB......

    I love Thai Shrimp Salads!

    DONE!

    CM,

    The nice part of a virtual picnic is that indoor kitties are safe outdoors.

    A refill of Ice Tea? DONE!

    MOFF,

    One Ice tea and 7 CNTs for the kiddies, Turkey sandwich and potato salad....

    DONE!


    Re Kid's Jokes?

    I was a senior in high school and did a week of camp counseling with a bunch of 6th graders, their jokes were the same that I learned......Now, 150 YEARS LATER? They are telling the same jokes!

    Well, it's hot.

    Damned hot.

    (I'll leave the rest of that quote to those who know Good Morning Vietnam!)

    Planting needs to be done, watering needs to be done, but it's going to wait until tonight.

    In the meantime, I'm going to tend bar for a bit, while having a cold one myself.
