Grin 'n' Share - Last Quarter

I found this very funny, especially since Canada just retired the penny earlier this year:

"Why are they stopping to make quarters?" one of our little girls asks her mom.

"What do you mean?" her mom wanted to know.

 "It says 'last quarter' right here," she said pointing to a wall calendar.

Must have been a full moon or something.


It's a Bird. It's a Plane.

We're planning on taking our students to see the Snowbirds, as they're doing a practice run at a training base a few miles from our colony and they're inviting people to watch for free. When we told our students, it soon became clear that some they didn't know who the Snowbirds are. One girl was heard telling her friends, 'We're going to Southport to watch some white birds."

Then one of the boys announced, "I saw a picture of the Penguins on Elma's computer." I was thinking hockey and couldn't imagine my sister Elma with a hockey picture. While I was trying to figure that out he continued, "They're going up like this." Using his hands to describe the picture.

"Oh," I said, "You mean the Snowbirds."

"Yes, the Snowbirds" he sheepishly answered.

Yup, getting your birds mixed up, buddy.

In case you don't know the Snowbirds:


  1. These make me smile- so cute! What fun it is to hear them, and then for us to get to enjoy them!

  2. Wow - that looks awesome! I'm not 100% sure what the Blue Angels are, but this reminds me of that so maybe it's kind of the same. That sounds like a great day - Snowbirds, penguins, white birds, whatever you call them. LOL

  3. Yup,Blue Angels and Snowbirds are about the same thing - pilots and planes entertaining audiences with trick maneuvers.
