1. Jill Weatherholt - June 7, 2014

These are hilarious, Nancy! I love it! Thanks for the Saturday morning laugh! 🙂

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

Joe sends me some great e-mails . . . I should probably put him on the SLTW payroll. Oh, wait, there is no payroll.

I’m loving your new series, Jill. Thanks for hosting.

2. katecrimmins - June 7, 2014

These are the best!

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

Glad you enjoyed, Kate. Nothing like laughter to get the day revved up right.

3. Maggie - June 7, 2014

My favorite is the one about the wedding dress.

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

The wording of that ad is priceless.

4. Silver in the Barn - June 7, 2014

Stephanie is my kind of girl! Thanks for the chuckle this morning.

Mine too! Glad you enjoyed.

5. kateshrewsday - June 7, 2014

These are great 😀

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

Understated British Humour at its best!

6. colonialist - June 7, 2014

I wonder if there was an overwhelming response for the Yorkie? You never know – some pet lovers like a challenge!

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

Exactly right! Who needs a complacent pet when you can adopt one with a feisty attitude? 😎

7. http://theenglishprofessoratlarge.com - June 7, 2014

Thank you for today’s laughter. They’re priceless!

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

Glad you enjoyed! I find that a healthy dose of laughter is the best way to start the day.

8. Val Boyko - June 7, 2014

Grins, giggles and laughter!
Thank you 🙂

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

Glad it gave you a good case of the grins and giggles.

9. Don - June 7, 2014

So good Nancy. Had a good laugh. Love these posts of yours.

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

Yay! Glad you enjoyed. As long as Joe/others keep ’em coming, I’ll keep sharing my “silly Saturday” posts.

10. Patricia - June 7, 2014

Great fun! Thanks for the laughs.

nrhatch - June 7, 2014

My pleasure, Patricia. Silly Saturday posts are often my favorite.

11. Grannymar - June 8, 2014

Thanks for the laughter, Nancy. I need to re-establish a routine for read regular reading and commenting on blogs.

nrhatch - June 8, 2014

I enjoy reading/ commenting on blogs but it’s time consuming. And it’s the first thing I let go of when time is tight.

But I hurry back at the first opportunity. 😎

12. Pix Under the Oaks - June 8, 2014

These are funny fun!!!!

nrhatch - June 8, 2014

Yay! Glad you enjoyed, Pix. Have a funny sunny Sunday!

The Brits do dry wit better than anyone in the known multiverse.

haha! Good stuff. John Cleese is among the funniest people to ever deploy the English language.

nrhatch - June 8, 2014

I grew up on Monty Python’s Flying Circus during high school.

As soon as I walk into someone’s house and see a penguin on the telly, or a dead parrot, I cannot breathe for laughing.

14. I am J - June 9, 2014

Too funny! The last one really made me laugh. I think my husband might agree with that one. Thanks for the hearty laughs.

nrhatch - June 9, 2014

Ha! Being married to a walking encyclopedia used to be a big deal before the internet and google. 😎

15. Eric Tonningsen - June 9, 2014

Enjoyed them all but the wedding dress ad took the cake (poor pun not intended). Thanks, Nancy.

nrhatch - June 9, 2014

The veiled meaning behind her words is perfect. 😎

16. jannatwrites - June 9, 2014

Oh, these are great! I laughed at nearly all of them (and now 2 of my cats are looking at me like I lost my mind. Perceptive animals 🙂 )

nrhatch - June 9, 2014

Haha . . . Sybil is one to “talk.” 😎
