Give Thanks Party at Lynn's==Today

I am sharing three=funny stories that happened on the night before Christmas, well they were funny to us.

We were playing cards, drinking and eating at the same time. My brother-in-law, names "Shorty", guess why. He is a tight-wad and when playing cards keeps track of his money very closely. Not paying any attention, not to mention he was drunk, poured his beer into his jar of money instead of his beer glass.==year 1969

We were playing cards again, this seems to be a night before Christmas family tradition years ago. My husbands sister Karen went to the bathroom, very tipsy. Next my cousin Bill went and when he came back to the table, he was holding a very wet twenty dollar bill. He said to Karen, "it is a good thing you did not flush the toilet, this was floating on top".= year 1966

This one I think is very funny. After we were done playing cards, my husband went to brush the snow from our car. He was standing on the passenger side snow bank, acting cute. All of a sudden he slipped and went right under the car, we had to go out and help him get out from under. = year 1969

Link back to Lynn's blog. To do this look on my right side bar and you will see the "Give Thank's Party" logo, just click on this, it will take you to Lynn's blog and she has a list of everyone that is participating today and they have posted why they are thankful. Things on my thankful list are, my family and my blogging friends and our armed forces for protecting our country and may they come home safe.

Loved the stories. Let us know if they are going to have one this year, so we can be prepared for another funny story. I just hope Wayne didn't hurt himself when he went under the car. But back then he was younger. LOL Like we all were. Happy week-end. Keep warm, it's a very cool damp day here today, makes my sinuses ached.
