  1. Loved these. It’s so refreshing to laugh. BTW, I think my husband has 4 remotes, and I don’t know how to use any of them. I know one turns on the TV, but then you need another one to make it work, another for speakers (or something) and the last one is truly a mystery. I think it has to do with movies. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. He offered to teach me, but I declined. 🤣

  2. I like the men wearing masks, Debbie! So true.
    Sally, I don’t know about racoons and ants, but slugs definitely like a swig of beer. It’s one of the tried and tested ways of trapping them.
    As to 25% of Americans believing Sherlock Holmes is real–well that I can believe. (Sorry USA.)

  3. These are hilarious, Debby and Sally, especially the ones about the masks and drinking beer in Cedar City where I’ll have to keep my shoelaces tied, too. Hugs

  4. Love the bra meme – especially in Florida. As Santa usually doesn’t visit Jews, perhaps his grandson will do this year? Wishful thinking…
    Sally, Errol Flynn’s job gives a new meaning to oral sex. Also, I wonder to whom the fish complained about being seasick.
