Friday Smiles

Hello everyone!  I'm joining up with Annie at A Stitch In Time.   If you need to smile hop on over and see what others are sharing.

I received an email from a friend about British humor.  It is very different (and truthfully, a bit more my style) from humor in the United States.  It's maybe a bit more snarky.

Here's a portion of the email.  Hope it gives you a smile and maybe even break out in laughter!
