Is it Friday yet?

 I don't know why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.

Scene: A conversation between two of my friends.
Friend #1: Are you visiting us tomorrow? Do you need directions?
Friend #2: I'm all set. I have the address, a GPS, and a GPS override.
Friend #1: What's a GPS override?
Friend #2: My wife.

These jokes came from Reader’s Digest

And these pictures came from Jessi,

the neighbor

who hates her red hair.

She is so pretty.

Happy Weekend One and All!

Do you read Reader’s Digest?

pretty, indeed!

and no...no time for reader's digest here. hehe

Becky, I hope Jessi can see how she looks through your eyes when she looks at your amazing pictures. She is absolutely gorgeous, and the red hair is a big part of who she is. Keep encouraging her; someday she will look back in gratitude. And I don't read Reader's Digest any more but LOVED it when I was younger. Now, I don't even have time for the "short version" of stories! But I did love the jokes...

Queenie Jeannie said...

I used to love reading RD!!! My grandparents used to get it and I read it there. They're gone now and about the only time I read it now is when I'm in the ER!!!

Mari said...

I love Readers Digest!

Mighty M said...

The pictures were so beautiful I almost forgot to read the jokes! :) Hopefully she will learn to cherish that beautiful hair of hers!!

g said...

She IS gorgeous, and what hair.

Great jokes!! St. Francis of a cc - I should have an icon of this saint in my cubicle at work.

Jessi is gorgeous, I hope that soon she will also see this.

I used to love reading Readers Digest. But, right now, I am about 4 People magazines behind. I know, my life is chaos. :0 Pity me.

mamamia said...

she hates her red hair? She must not know it is to die for! Loved the joke about GPS override ;0)

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

How could she not love that red hair! One day she will appreciate that hair and those precious freckles! She is absolutely adorable!

Love the jokes! Too funny... and no I don't read readers digest... The only magazines I read are the covers of magazines at the checkout stand

Kelly said...

She's gorgeous!

Kristina P. said...

She is seriously beautiful.

Emily said...

So funny! And your neighbor is *gorgeous*. Great pictures!

Dan said...

Reader's Digest is one of those occasional reads here. There has to be a shortage of better reading materials before it gets pressed into service. Being a compulsive reader means that even second choice reading is better than none. {*grin*}

littletoesandcheerios said...

My FIL (who passed recently) always read them. I would rea some he left laying around sometimes.
She is a beautiful girl and from one red head to another...red locks rock girl!!!!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Jessi is lovely :-) I hope she takes a good look at these pictures and believes it.

Martha in PA said...

Beautiful shots!

My mother gets RD, I used to like reading it, but I never seem to think to get it from her room!

The jokes made me chuckle!

Have a happy weekend!

mimbles said...

Beautiful photos of a gorgeous girl!

The GPS joke made me snigger :-)

Nope, no Reader's Digest for me, in fact I don't think I've ever read one.

Tabor said...

NOt only is this girl lovely but she has a peacefulness about her. Thanks for the laughs...these were new to me.

Nurse Nancy said...

I read it when I travel and when I am in a doctor's office waiting room. Always enjoyable.

Live.Love.Eat said...

LOL. This cracked me up this morning. First, the cupid quote is hilarious and then the GPS override hits home. That's what I am. We fight about the stupid GPS.

I mean, he uses it to go somewhere we have been quite a few times. So, I tell him don't you dare ask me to plug in the info when we're almost there. So when he starts to do it and we almost run off the road, I just get sooooo mad :) But it's all good, if this is the worst we fight about :)

blueviolet said...

Love the GPS override remark!!! Men and women view orientation so differently!

4 Lettre Words said...

These are too funny...and that 1st one is soooo true!

Have a great weekend, R!

LceeL said...

Funny stuff - and your neighbor is GORGEOUS!!

Dot O said...

Daughter and hubby fight over who gets to open the RD in our house. We get two versions, now, since my mother-in-law passed in September, all of her mail gets diverted to hear and now we also get the large-print version.

Love your jokes, and love,love,love the photos - beautiful!!! Tell your neighbor that her hair is to die for!!

Grandma J said...

I love red hair! YOur photos are always the best!

Have a good weekend!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

She is so pretty. I love her red hair too.

Baloney said...

I have about 4 Readers Digest mags stacked waiting to be read. LOVE them but lack time.
She will love her red hair someday. Most red heads are proud of it as adults! She is beautiful!

Trudy said...

She is beautiful! You are so lucky to be surrounded by so many beautiful people in your life.

The jokes are great...I needed the laugh this afternoon after a not so great diagnosis from the doctor. I have gestational diabetes so it's time to get serious about taking care of us now!

Have a blessed weekend Rebeckah!

Nessa said...

Jessi is gorgeous.

No kidding, she is gorgeous! I love her red hair. I only read Readers Digest in waiting rooms. :) Happy Friday to you and yours! XX Lori

She Writes said...

Oh this was too funny! Loved the conversation and the quote. The girl with the red hair is darling.

Lisa said...

She hates her beautiful red hair...Say it isn't so.

Dear Jessi:

YOU ARE SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL...

Donna said...

Whoa! Those pics are so good! And the stories are funny too. I love RD and I was sad to hear that they're going out of business! Is that true? Did you hear that too!

So funny to see that one joke as we just received a gift subscription to Reader's Digest for Christmas and got our first issue the other day. I was laughing at that GPS override one and then I was like "whaaattt??" when I saw it on your blog ... I thought you had written it or something.

And your neighbor is lovely ... and I bet she'll hate her red hair until she is older and can appreciate how special it makes her!!!

Anita Johnson said...

I love your photos...and I love the RTeaders Digest too. It's the perfect size to read in bed and I don't wake my husband when I turn the pages. :-)

CRAZYMOM said...

First of all: that girl AND her hair are soooooo lovely! Wow! Secondly, I am fascinated by your cropping. It looks so great! I am never brave enough (yet) to do it. You are inspiring me.

Spencer L Casey said...

Reading Reader's Digest makes me feel like I'm 12 years old again. Simpler, easier times. Wonderful jokes and that little girl is striking. She could model or something.

Cheers,

SLC

Teacher Tom said...

That's so funny! As I was reading along, I thought to myself, "This sounds like Reader's Digest."

Adoption of Jane said...

but her hair is so pretty!

Lauren said...

I don't read reader's digest, but I've been thinking about it. Is the magazine any good?

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Only when I rip it off from the doctor's office.

Jessi is gorgeous!

Grand Pooba said...

Oh I used to read reader's digest all the time! But only the joke pages of course. Com'on I was like 12! She doesn't like her hair? It's gorgeous, I know people who would dye to have that color! (Get it? dye? Sorry, I'm a nerd)

Rebekah said...

You had better not tell her that my little miss is the biggest DRAMA queen ever. We discovered that when she was only a couple months (yes months!) old :( She has quite the temper for us to work on!

Whatever Dee-Dee wants said...

I haven't read Reader's Digest in a long time, maybe I should start reading it again.

Great photos!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love red hair!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I absolutely love it here.

Read the post below, re your son donating his money. This is the kind of thing that needs to be in headlines, not celebs donating money from the millions they have (that's good too, but when a young man donates his b-day money), how wonderful is that?

tara said...

your son is a saint -- and gorgeous photos! love the red hair. thanks for stopping by, nice to e-meet you!

DD said...

What a beautiful girl!!

Unknown Mami said...

I hope someday very soon she grows to love her beautiful hair. It is rare and it is lovely.

The Grown-Up Child said...

Wow! She is beautiful. And thanks for the jokes. I love Reader's Digest.
