Ernest Hemingway’s 15 things has been on my timeline forever. I finally read it, and giggled my a off. Very amusing.
And here’s one of those internet stories you should check out on Snopes. Or not, because it doesn't really matter. The parrot who snitched on the cheating husband. It's always true if the parrot says so. Even on the internet.
Home Free’s How Great Thou Art little mash up with It is well. No words.
Yes, yes, there is a bonus post. I shared so many posts on the wonderfullest Wednesday ever, that I would feel I cheated you if there wasn't an extra today. It's a little naughty, but very funny. Jane and Arlene.
Happy weekend everyone.
