Six Word Saturday - 20 September 2014

A horse of another color, of course.

My intention for this post, on this balmy, over cast morning- is strictly to be funny!

I'm feeling the mood for grooving on the humorous side of life this morning. Must work on my "upbeat conversation mode" in preparation for our annual Midwest Federal Savings and Loan Reunion Luncheon, which begins at noon today.



Iron horses and cactus
Sedona, Arizona

I liked the WC Fields' quote the best.

Love the quotes and those marvelous photos Karen.

Liked your quotes, Karen. First was the most appropriate. My favorite horse quote is "Never look a gift horse in the mouth."

My vote on the pictures is the second, sooo life like.

Best wishes with the luncheon (it'll be over by the time you read this). My lunch today was BBQ ribs, au gratin potatoes, creamed spinach, potato salad, onion soup, and lemon pudding. All here in rehab with Mrs. Jim. She started recovery from a hip fracture followed by a partial hip replacement.
See why I'm mostly absent at the Toads?

Riding a horse is on my (long term) todo list, or bucket list as Americans like to say. It has been a wish of mine since childhood.

Huh! I missed those horses when I was in Sedona in June.

It is nice to occasionally be funny:-)))))

Nice topic:-)

Yep - I'm with the rest of them - I love the W C Fields quote - never heard it before - it's great. Love the pix - especially the sculpture of Abraham Lincoln which is just fabulous - it's a kind of candid statue - if such a thing exists.


I love Jimmy Fallon!!!! That 'liar food' is rich. LOL

I lived in Tucson for nearly a decade, and went to Sedona many times...never saw these iron horses....but of course an iron horse is a maybe I was looking for the wrong thing all along.
