A warm and wonderful THANK YOU goes out to all of you who visited my blog yesterday and said HI to me on my special day. Gave me the warm and fuzzies!

Just wanted to mention...the yummy merman picture was actually a cropped pic from a much larger picture by Boris Vallejo. Another blogger told me about it, BUT not what the pic was cropped from. So, of course I took a look....Aiyyeee Chow-wawa!!!! Lucky mermaid!!!! I can't post it here...too hot.

This is one of the other cakes I found but didn't post yesterday.
Because It's Wallace And Gromit.
Their new movie..Wallace & Gromet and The Curse of The Were-Rabbit opens tomorrow.
I LOVE Wallace and Gromit. Not ashamed to admit it either.
Are you going to see it?

Since I'm all written out today, I'm going to let pictures provide some base amusement.

This is for all the germ conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean.

John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Georgia. After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, "Are these plates clean?"

His grandfather replied, "They're as clean as cold water can get them. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!"

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, "Are you sure these plates are clean?"

Without looking up the old man said, "I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!"

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass. John yelled and said, "Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car".

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted


Meet Coldwater......

And the final dirty word.....

Once again, nature provides those Hallmark* moments....... :-)
