Well, I did it. (But, I thought the ‘height’ was the last one in properties - so I switched it - guess I was wrong - as it chopped off part of the graphic.)

Thank you and JC for your good “teechin’”!

Now, if I want to type something under the graphic, do I do the < center > thing again?

As the format I sent has height first..one must use last number in properties first...That is why I warned you how easy it is to mix them up! I do it and have to go back and switch numbers, too.
put a < br > then < center > and your usual text greeting underneath

Nancy had to laugh too, “She’s a woman for being only 5 years old!

Breakfast steak and coffee are on the table (by the fireplace.)

LOL, Amy. I’m laughing because yesterday it was snowing and today we’re walking barefoot on the beach. (and don’t I wish!)

Love that song.

"Oops - I should have swaid" I had to post this to you....thought you would really enjoy! Have you been nipping, Billie? LOL!

LOL! I noticed that right after I hit "Send", but since it was already an edit of the post I had juswt sent, I let it stand.

"juswt" :)

Thanks, Yorkie.

Didn’t I say that I’m ready for spring? :)

‘fraid the snow will return tomorrow. I was so happy to receive that new graphic from Lori and I didn’t want to save it until next summer.

I think it was Jaycee that said she wanted to post snow graphics in the summer and summer graphics in the winter. :)

Hope you are having a Terrific Thursday.

Our teacher asked us what our favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken." She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, everyone else in the class laughed.

My parents told me to always be truthful and honest, and I am. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef.

Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, just like she'd asked the other children. So I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal's office again. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.

I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am. Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most.

I told her, "Colonel Sanders".

Guess where I am now...

How horrible, Gail.

Several years ago, my son had frozen pipes that burst over Christmas. He was here for Christmas and found the mess after being away for a week. The insurance covered all the work needed in his kitchen, dining room and living room.

He now sets his thermostat low when he leaves, even for a few days.

Hope you can get this cleaned up soon; it is an awful time to be worrying about this.

Your reply was cuter than the first remark. I'm so glad we can all enjoy these things 'cause I'm sure guilty of making these errors....

I 'juswt' had to answer this....LOL! My computer underlined that word to try to correct it for me and I can't talk back!

The joke was funnier today than when I sent it! LOL! And your graphic is so pretty! Makes me want some delicious fried chicken, darn it!

I’m going to try to get back a bit later. I am vacuuming the living room carpet....just vacuumed the furniture (Christmas cleaning). I have to rest a bit before I do the carpet! What a job! I’m not fond of housework as I get older! At one time, it was a joy!

“Proverbs 4:23 (King James Version)

23. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
___________________________________________________________

The knowledge of God from the Holy Scriptures is Great and Good.

Refreshing to the soul and mind, calming to the spirit,
strengthening to our assurance in the promises of God the Father.

We may be tested. We may be chastised. We are to grow in the image of Christ.

What we look for is what we find. If we look for evil ... it is there.

If we look for good, it is there.

Guard your thoughts for out of them comes the issues of life.

As a man thinks in his heart ... so he is.

Hey,DD. I recognize that sign.
I miss our Friday night rallies.

This one was taken in June of 2008.

Hope you are having a great Thursday.

Stay warm as you enjoy the day.

OH, Thank you for that link, Johnn. That little girl is precious. I loved watching it; I’ll probably watch it again before sending it out via email.

BTW: I’ll have the Corn Beef Hash as I enjoy that fun window.

Have a Terrific Thursday.

Good morning, Mayor. Are you still getting snow? I think we should get some rain this weekend.

Thank you for bringing coffee and sharing the scripture lesson with us every morning.

Have a Terrific Thursday.

The swinging doors at Amy's Place swing open and fewz comes in singing a song to the tune of: Leaving On a Jet Plane

So frisk me... and smile at me
Smell me as you dump my pee
Scold me like you think I am dope
cause I'm leaving... on the next train
won't fly... to heck with your plane
Oh Gabe, I really hate your grope

jaycee: You stole that song from my graphic!

fewz: Yeah, I did. I was over in the fruits and vegetables when I heard the cat singing that lyric and just had to have it. Know what I mean, Ms J?

jaycee: Well, I knew that you were a tune thief but I didn't know that you were also a lyric lifter.

The juke box starts playing: The Streak

fewz: Shoot fire.... I not only take tunes and lift lyrics, I've have also been known to abscond avatars. Ms Billie can attest to that. But, like they say on American Idol: “I make them my own”.

jaycee: Well, I guess it's better to be engaged in stuff like that than politics. You steal puny and they steal money. Teacher, teacher ain't that funny?

The juke box starts playing a Christmas song: Good King Wenceslas

jaycee: What do you want Santa Claus to bring you this year?

fewz: I know what I'll probably get since I've been bad. A sack of switches or a lump of coal. You know what I got one time when I was a kid?

jaycee: No idea.

fewz: We had been studying about Dutch kids setting their shoes out at Christmas and we had been singing: "The Twelve Days of Christmas". So, we decided to set our shoes out for twelve nights before Christmas.

jaycee: Did you get anything in your shoe?

fewz: Yep. Got a great big sweet potato the very first night. Wasn't really what I had in mind.

The juke box starts playing: Take an Old Cold Tater and Wait

fewz: Is Ms K a.k.a. yorkie coming in today?

jaycee: I'm not sure. Why?

fewz: I was wondering if she was attending the briefing.

jaycee: What briefing?

fewz: The one that Magic Johnson is giving on attacking the Death Star.

fewz: I heard that NASA is making some kind of announcement today. Wonder if it has anything to do with Nibiru.

jaycee: What is Nibiru?

fewz: Aw you know... Planet X.
