Night Music ~ Marlene Dietrich - La Vie en Rose

Marlene Dietrich & Édith Piaf - La Vie en Rose

Found For Friday

A haggard old lady rides in a fancy hotel’s elevator.
On the second floor, a beautiful woman steps on
and arrogantly says to the old lady, “Georgio, $100 an ounce.”
On the next floor, an equally beautiful women steps on
and says, “Chanel, $150 an ounce.”
The old lady’s floor approaches and as the doors open,
she bends over, farts and says, “Broccoli, 49 cents a pound.

My last job was as a professional fisherman ,
but discovered that I couldn’t live on my net income.

I liked digging in the garden when I was young.
At one time I considered being an archeologist
but my father said that such a career would end up in ruins .

I used to be a baker , but I didn't make enough dough .

I had worked in the Income Tax Department ,
but it was just too taxing .

I used to be a butler , but found the work wasn't my cup of tea .

At one time, I worked as a Sales executive selling computer parts
but I lost my drive and the boss gave me the boot .

I wanted to be a stenographer , but they told me t
hey are not short-hand ed at the moment.

I thought about becoming a witch ,
so I tried that for a spell .

Next, I found being an electrician interesting,
but the work was shocking .

Next was a job in a shoe factory;
I tried but I just didn’t fit in.

Night Music ..White Wine In The Sun by Tim Minchin

Molly and Todd on Monday on Tuesday

Molly here,
    B G has been busy taking this week.   And we had snow.  I suppose that is why he took so many pictures.

When we woke up there was snow on the ground.

So we had to go out and explore.

It was cold though so we were not in for a long time.

B G said he had seen the Rabbits playing also but he was not quick to see them let alone snap a picture.

 After we played in the snow..(Todd was racing around the yard) it was back to our cozy beds.

Our December Bouquet 

Then we settled down with B G the T V to watch Lucky Dog.  It is our favorite show.

More snowfun.

BG said that I should put this up on Tuesday this week because Monday is Christmas and he put a lot of Christmas Songs. He hopes you enjoy them.

Thanks for stopping to see us.  See you next week.  Woof!
