Watch What You Say

A friend sent this and I laughed so hard I decided to share it with you:

Last night my sister and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life at all. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.
She's such a bitch.

(Thanks, Russ. You always make me laugh)

This American Goldfinch sat and posed for me.

Many thanks for sitting on a branch without leaves.

That is TOO funny! And the goldfinch is too lovely.

Ha! I'd better not show that to my husband, he might get ideas. :)

It was very nice of that goldfinch!

Oh NC--what a laugh. Thanks.
I guess I am in that dependent state, with fluids in hand (or at least very close by).

I love that only you and I know the irony in the joke.
Goldfinch, by the way, has long been one of my favorites. Stunning photo.
