It's the Groaner of the Week!!!

Yeah, it's Monday and after midnight and my new system is not up and running so you're get this via my old computer. Sigh. I haven't figured out how to get everything saved that I want to transfer to my new computer. I think my old one is raging against its retirement as it isn't being very cooperative. Double sigh. As I've probably said here 1001 times, I am not a good techie type -- any advice or sympathy is welcome! Emily and I had a real adventure putting my new desk chair together. Good thing her little guy wasn't around -- we might have expanded his vocabulary in a non-positive way! LOL

I pulled one of the funniest groaners I have out of the archives -- it's really more of a giggler than a groooooaaaaaannnnn so I hope y'all will do a bit of both!

A doctor made it his regular habit to stop off at a bar for a hazelnut daiquiri on his way home. The bartender knew the doctor's habit and would always have a drink waiting.

One day the bartender ran out of hazelnut extract, so he substituted hickory nuts. When the doctor arrived, he took a sip and exclaimed, "This isn't a hazelnut daiquiri!"

"No, I'm sorry," the bartender replied,

"It's a hickory daiquiri, doc."

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!



  1. LOL - I could use one of those right now!

    I know why your new PC doesn't work yet.

    The mouse screwed up the clock ;-)

  3. I love hazelnut, so I'd be mad! Sorry about the computer.

  4. I'm LOL on Tuesday, now I'm going to take a nap! Ahhhhh it's going to be bliss unless the neighbourhood dogs start barking again!

  5. Big groan, Kay! No wonder you haven't answered my e-mail about the technicalities of putting up the ElderBlogger banner. You are totally innundated with your new furniture, data transfer, etc. Thinking of you.

  6. ... hickory daiquiri doc... Indeed! Gag! Barf! Groan!

    If you don't have a little USB thumb drive, get one. At least 1 GB. They are cheap and available everywhere now. Use it to copy your data from the old PC and move to the new one. Then use it regularly to keep the essential stuff backed up. Any more details needed, email me.

  7. A new Dell sounds wonderful, but I can understand the old computers sense of being put to pasture or where ever old computers go.
