Welcome to the July 20, 2008 edition of family funnies. I don’t know why I love this photoÂ of this old woman but I wasÂ inclinedÂ to useÂ itÂ hereÂ forÂ someÂ reason. It’s my blog-I canÂ if I want.
Now, for the real stuff – family funnies. My comments are in the italics. Enjoy and thanks to all who submitted this month!
