joke or no joke

first a classic joke Tuesday for you

what do you call a pig that does karate?
Pork Chop

Why couldn't the pirate remember the alphabet?
He always got lost at "C' 

 first that these are coming to your local store.
I-CAN-NOT-WAIT for the cookie dough ones, keep your eyes peeled
and let me know if you discover!

second this continued weather pattern
 in Js words:  This is brutal!
started the day at -8, have no fear it made its way to -2

joke or no joke
that is the question today!

subzero weather

it has been cold, freezing, snowy, aka a good old Michigan Winter :) 

so what to do when it is oh so cold

bake soft pretzels with your mom

go to the Y and swim with this peanut
he is little fish, so fun!

bundle up with tons of layers and head to the park to snowshoe
it is just beautiful out there

sit on the couch with tons of blankets and call it good!

stay warm stay warm!

i live for the applause

extra extra read all about it

behind in the times because it came out November 6
 but I finally own it

back to the good old lady gage poker face sounding
do not listen to close....lady G out did herself on the explicit category
which to me is sad, such good music and beat but erkk to the lyrics

so just have to listen to about ever other song
would not say run out and buy
the two good songs are on the radio

oh Lady lets be a little more family friendly next time ;-) 
i know i know not her style!

I will still be a fan
