  1. I’ve got to give you credit for at least creating a holiday theme. Therefore, instead of torture by even worse puns, well … there are other torture methods … so here’s Pun Pun

    • Thanks. I’m not entirely sure what part of her are the pun puns since she seems to be shaking most bits, but I appreciate the thought 🙂

  2. But … but …. you missed that great one from my youth. “What’s the favourite Revolutionary dish?? Chicken Catch-a-Tory!” 😀
    Thanks for the much-needed laughs. My first Fourth without a dog in over 22 years…. 😦

      • Trust me, when we do go for another dog, he (or she) will be the same breed as the previous 5 – “rescue”. (Well, technically only four – our 2nd dog was a purebred Border Collie, but he was our wedding present, so I guess he doesn’t count.) But Sam deserves his period of mourning, and the wife and I need to find the right one. Something will present itself – We saw Sam online on a Thursday, and he was ours Friday night. 🙂
