Just Watching, Honest! Here's a joke:
A man sitting down at the movies notices 
a seagull sitting on the 
seat right next to him! 
"What are you doing at the movies?" 
The seagull replies, 
"I really enjoyed the book."

I see we have posted the same bird. I love your kitty, I don't know how you call this type in english, but in dutch we call it a "lapjeskat" (patchwork cat)

Pixie is so cute!

Hello Cloudia!:) Great photos of the gulls, amusing joke, which I heard only yesterday but can't remember where, but it's still funny second time around. Is that your cat? It's so cute, and a lovely colour.

Cloudia said...

My cat Pixie (in the photo) LOVES that joke. A very subtle feline.

Thanks MUCH friends! (esp to the person I stole the joke from yesterday JUSt as I was crafting this post with seagulls)

Unless you write your own jokes, all jokes are stolen.
