A Fresh Look

I’ve had the same look to my blog for a couple of years now and I wanted something a little different but not completely. I wanted to keep my header. That wasn’t possible so . . .

My wonderful hubby helped with the new header. He did such a great job. I love the way it looks. He kept what I liked about the header but made it look fresher. Thank you so much honey.

I hope you guys enjoy the new look.

I leave you with this little joke Uncle Al sent to my hubby. I'm not sure where it's from so if you heard of it, I'd love to give credit to the author.

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack.

"Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday."

Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager.

Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral.

The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.

Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.

She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral."

She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"

The bank manager looks back at her and says...

"It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."

(You're singing it, aren't you? Yeah, I know you are........)

Love, love, love the new look! Anything with water gets my approval.

(And, yes, I'm singing the song! LOL)

Be blessed!

hahaha Good one!
Love the new water based look.
It looks like the quiet pool after the waterfall. Losing my rudder.

I actually sang it at least twice (for whatever reason) and then saw your last statement. It's funny how we do that. I love your new look too.
Thanks for popping by again. You always leave such encouraging comments that make me smile.

Yes, love the new look Nadine, I wish I can have a 'make over too' :D

Ily said...

Ha! You know I'd love this one, Chica, being a Mick Jagger/Stones fan!

Your new look is warm and inviting, but then so was the old one. I like that this one's a little brighter and more you. Good job, Tom!

Nadine said...

Thanks everyone for the blog love.

May - Blogger has changed its design and you can pick "backgrounds" to different templates. The water was under "backgrounds."
