July is here, people! And from the looks of it, Mother Nature is really wreaking havoc with friends all over with excessive heat. Except here – though now that I’ve said that, I’ve probably just invoked Murphy’s Law and the heat will come…heh!! 

My donor board arrived over the weekend, now I just need to muster up the courage to melt the solder on the teeny tiny ROM chips on both boards to swap them out and hope that the donor board will work its magic and allow me to access all the data on that crippled drive. I’ll keep you posted.

So tomorrow is the 4th of July – I still wish those that are they would turn it into a 2-day holiday affair, since tomorrow night will no doubt be a very late night, and having the alarm rudely awaken us at 4:15 am is going to be unappreciated. The hubby did mention he has some days he needs take off before a certain date – one of those ‘use them or lose them’ moratoriums, so he might take Thursday and Friday off simply because he can – so that would make for nice ‘no alarm’ days for sure. Here’s hoping!

No surprise – someone’s shooting off fireworks right now (it’s been a constant occurrence since the state allowed the sale of fireworks as of noon on June 28th) and the dogs are barking, so let’s get right to the funnies, shall we?

Speaking of the 4th of July…

I thought this was punny:

This is also punny:

This is kinda scary funny:

This absolutely cracked me up:

I can totally relate to this:

Anyone who’s ever gotten anything from IKEA will appreciate this:

And a couple of phone funnies to tickle your funny bone:

And finally, with everyone dealing with hot weather, I’m going to leave this right here for you:

That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. And that means even if you don’t have a specific Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel post posted, you can still link up, I’m not picky. You don’t even have to add the badge, just link up so I can come harass you on your blog. I promise to play nice.

Have a Happy and Safe Fourth of July!

  1. I have that same phone booth funny on my blog today! I love the Ikea funny! I totally get it! Curious to see how your board goes! Keep us posted! Happy 4th of July!

  2. That girl and her “eyebrows”! Who knew punctuation could double for face adornment. Not really a place I’d go, but hey, to each their own?

    Happy 4th of July!

  3. A blessed Independence Day to you and your family, and thanks for the funnies!

  4. Oh yes – phone booths (remember when) phones with receivers and dial tones (remember when) – enjoyed the hit of nostalgia. I admire anyone who can solder. Hope it turned out well.
