* This 'n That on a Tuesday *

I'm leaving this Thursday for a little vacation in the beautiful state of Georgia, visiting relatives and friends! I'm not dragging my laptop along, mostly because it's not one of the lighter weight models, but also to take a break from blogging. I'll have my Blackberry, though, so I'll still be able to send and receive e-mails. I'll certainly tell y'all about it, and have pictures to post, after I get back!
On my Nostalgic Sunday post, I hadn't located the pretty note card that Patti mailed, so I couldn't include it. WELL, today I found it while going through items on my desk. It's amazing the things you can find when you're not even looking for them. It's like watching little Theodore Cleaver pull all the contents out of his pocket. Anyway....here's the pretty note card. Thanks again, Patti!

I discovered Patti's card while rummaging around files and folders, looking for something else. I also came across some old quotes and jokes from years past that I'd printed to save. Some actually made me laugh out loud, with a genuine laugh, not a chuckle or smile, or a semi-silent, that's cute.
These are supposedly real questions and answers from the old Hollywood Squares game show. (Some might be considered off-color. I hope I won't offend anyone by posting them.)

Q. Back in the old days, when Great Grandpa put horseradish on his head, what was he trying to do?
A. George Gobel: Get it in his mouth.

Q. As you grow older, do you tend to gesture more or less with your hands while talking?
A. Rose Marie: You ask me one more growing old question Peter, and I'll give you a gesture you'll never forget.

Q. What are "Do It", "I Can Help" and "I Can't Get Enough"?
A. George Gobel: I don't know, but it's coming from the apartment next door.

Q. According to Ann Landers, what are two things you should never do in bed?
A. Paul Lynde: Point and laugh.

** Also welcome to my newest follower: Working Man. I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you!

I'll "see" y'all when I get back home!


  1. I think grandpa was trying to ward off a cold with that horseradish. At least that's the old wives tale I've heard. And I've heard a lot of them too! LOL!
    I'm getting the travel itch too. Have fun on your trip and can't wait to see some pics of the mountains.~Ames

  2. These were too cute! Have fun in Georgia. I'd love to visit there sometime. I hope you snap a few pictures to share with us while your gone.


  3. Have a good time! At the risk of treating you like a sixteen-year-old going off to Nerd Camp...have you packed your favorite Frisbee?

  4. Come on to Georgia girl! Can't wait to see you! I love the old game shows! hugs, Linda

  5. Ha! More proof that humor does not require language that would make a truck driver blush. Enjoy your vacation, Becky!


  6. Enjoy your break. Vacations are always nice! I chuckled at the jokes.

  7. Have a great vacation, Becky! I'm looking forward to hearing about it when you return. :)

  8. Oh Boy! Will you visit Flannery O'Conner's Andalusia? Will you eat at Blue Willow Innn? Will you visit Margaret Mitchell's house? Will you... Well, have a good trip whatever you do!

  9. Have w lovely trip! Thanks for making me laugh. :)

  10. Hye, I'm going to Georgia, too! On the 21st we are gone to Jekyll Island for 5 days! We always vacationed there as children, and after we married, we continued to go there whenever we could.

    Have fun on your trip--I know I will.

  11. Have a great vacation, happy travels to you :)

  12. Have a great trip! I'm going to Houston next week in this heat! Ugh. Loved Paul Lynde's remark.

  13. Have a great trip! I'd forgotten all about Hollywood Squares. They don't make em like that anymore!

  14. I do so love your blog.
    Have fun on your vacation :)

  15. Hi Becky,

    Have a wonderful time! Believe me, it is good to get away (and away from the computer) once in a while.

    I thought that your jokes were pretty funny too. Thanks for all the visits and comments when I was gone, I really appreciate them.

    Have a wonderful Wed.!

  16. That show--the original--was a riot. Thanks for reminding me. :) See you next week!

  17. These are cute Becky. You always come up with the cutest sayings.
    Have a great time on your trip, take loads of pictures to share with us. hugs ~lynne~

  18. Have a great trip. Hope it's a relaxing and memory-making time with ones near and dear to your heart.

    And you are most welcome for the card. I LOVE giving my friends something other than bills in their mailbox.


  19. We love Georgia. Enjoy your trip!
