And Now, Time for Some Humor! :-)

There's nothing like a good chuckle, and I figure after last week, we all could use a few. Here's some places in the genea-blogging world where you can get your giggles and grins:

  • * Apple from Apple's Tree has a great restroom story from her travails--oops! travels--on her personal blog, The Apple Doesn't Fall Far from the Tree here.
  • * The footnoteMaven adds a new word to our genea-blogging vocabulary: blodging. I'm already paying off people not to tell my husband about this one.
  • * And what list of great genealogy humor would be complete without the inimitable Chris Dunham's Genealogue? His Top Ten Lists are superior to David Letterman's, let me tell you!
  • * For all you parents out there (or those who know and love kids), you've got to read Dawn Meehan's Because I Said So. She was recently jet-propelled into fame when her E-bay auction of her son's Pokeman cards received thousands of hits. The reason? She described how the pack of cards ended up in her cart on a recent visit to the grocery store with all six of her kids! In one day, her blog received over 100,000 hits and she got over 10,000 e-mails. So it's not genealogy; you all need a good laugh, don't you?

Thanks Miriam! fM, Randy and Chris are on my regular reading list. Because I said so is hilarious!

Thank you for injecting some humor into this week. I enjoyed all your selections.

And thanks for adding blodging. My husband is very proud of himself!
