    Oh no! I can't remember jokes -- I tell the same ones over and over :) but the last one I told was to my 14 yo daughter.

    Love all the jokes! Made my day. Also NonnieKelly and GrandmaKc. Funny stuff! The last joke I shared I actually stole from Ally over at Just a Normal Mom. It was so funny I posted it on facebook. Gave her credit, of course. I still laugh just thinking about it.

    The last joke I shared with one or the other of my seven kids (they're all in their forties and fifties now) was: Why does an elephant paint her toenails red? So she can hide in a strawberry patch.

    Why didn't the orange cross the road?

    He ran out of juice!

    Love all the jokes

    The last person I giggled with was my granddaughter Helen, who has a keen sense of humor. We love pirate jokes, because you can make up your own with anything that has a strong "r" sound. What's a pirate's favorite fast food restaurant? Arrrrby's! You get the idea.
