Please enjoy a guest post by The Father-in-Law . . . and as always interspersed with random pictures by moi.  – Joanna

I seem to have a little free time so here comes some more fun facts and friends.  I won’t take credit (or blame) for all of them but want to share these pearls of wisdom with you.

FUN FACT – When George Washington was asked to show some ID he just whipped out a quarter.

I have a friend who hasn’t spoken to his wife in years, he doesn’t want to interrupt her.  Since he’s been married he doesn’t date much.  He used to date a girl with a lazy eye but broke up with her because she was seeing someone on the side.

FUN FACT – Oceans would be much deeper if sponges didn’t grow in them.

A childhood friend had it pretty rough growing up.  His parents moved around a lot but he always found them.  He was really homely and had a lot of bad experiences because of that.  When he was born the doctor slapped his mother!  He got excited once when a girl called him and said, “Come on over, no one’s home”.  He went over and no one was home.  He got a job in a pet store and customers would ask him how big he would get.  At Halloween, other parents sent their kids out looking like him.

FUN FACT – When a radio announcer walks under a bridge you can’t hear him talk.

I have a friend who’s a horrible golfer.  I golfed with him yesterday and he only hit two good balls the whole day.  He stepped on a rake.

FUN FACT – If you shoot a mime you must use a silencer.

I grew up with a neighbor kid who had parents that put a quicksand box in their back yard.  He was an only child…eventually.  Their house ran on static electricity.  To run the blender they had to rub balloons on their heads.  They had a microwave fireplace.  You could spend an evening in front of the fire in eight minutes.


FUN FACT – It’s unfair that only one company makes the game Monopoly.

You’ve been a great audience but please sit back down!  We’ll now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

  1. All that motorcycle rain gear and armor makes a Hubby look a little tubby, doesn’t it?

    • Thanks Aly. It’s good that Joanna posts my little essays, otherwise I’d have to send them into the local newspaper – and get arrested.

  3. Ha! Reminds me of something MY father-in-law said in his speech at our wedding. He was about 70 at the time.

    “Philip is our second son…. and presumably our last.” Brought the house down.

    • That is funny Ann. The only thing better than a FIL with a sense of humor is a rich FIL with a sense of humor. Unfortunately for Joanna I just have a lot of jokes. (Sorry, there I go again – sense of humour.) 🙂
