Good Morning Susan and thank you for a whole day of smiles. It's unbelievable that the Editors didn't catch these funnies! I love your remarks too.
I am having a very busy summer, between making cakes and tending the garden and all, it seems the time just flies by and by the time I can sit at the computer I am so tired I just go blank!
Unfortunately I'm not able to do much blog visiting right now but it will ease up soon and I'll be back in the swing of things.
Love, Hugs and prayers.

Crystal said...

Those are hilarious, Susan! As a teacher, I wonder who writes this stuff too. If people would just slow down a bit and reread what they've just written, I'm sure many of these wouldn't happen. Anyway, thanks for the smiles :))
