Life with a good sense of humor

Hello, friends!  Can you believe today is July 15--the middle of summer?  The weeks are flying by, aren't they?

I live with funny people.

Do the people in your house like to play jokes?  Tell me about them!

  2. That is so funny!

    I have a little container with scrabble tiles in it sitting on a window sill and the wooden stand for the letters next to it always has a word on it. When people drop by they often change the word on me - I love it.
