Joke: Don't Eat Chicken No Matter What!

I just got this joke from my sister...I think it is so funny that I will share it with you.

A little boy and a little girl attended the same school and became friends. Every day they would sit together to eat their lunch.

They discovered that they both brought chicken sandwiches every day!This went on all through the fourth and fifth grades, until one day he noticed that her sandwich wasn't a chicken sandwich.

He said, "Hey, how come you're not eating chicken, don't you like itanymore?"She said "I love it but I have to stop eating it." "Why?" he asked. She pointed to her lap and said "Cause I'm starting to grow little feathers down there!""Let me see" he said."Okay" and she pulled up her skirt. He looked and said, "That's right. You are! Better not eat any more chicken."

He kept eating his chicken sandwiches until one day he brought peanut butter. He said to the little girl, "I have to stop eating chicken sandwiches, I'm starting to get feathers down there too!" She asked if she could look, so he pulled down his pants for her. She said "Oh, my God, it's too late for you! You've already got the neck and the gizzards!!!

Isn't this kit of Doris just perfect for these pictures of Kaylie? I love the linen bg. ppr. and the shade of blue. The silver swirl is so cute, as are the painted flowers. For $4.00 this mini kit can't be beat! It is after all, a Doris original. LOL

Birthday Wishes for Doris Castle!

Happy Birthday, Doris!
I hope you have a great day.
May your spirit keep the freedom of a butterfly in spring,
May your heart be filled always with the joys of simple things.
May your essence claim the freshness of the new laid morning dew.
All of this...and more... is my Birthday wish for you.

I used Le Jardin page set by Doris Castle to create this card.
