First, some good news - To all of you who offered prayers and good wishes for our young friend who was severly injured in an accident last weekend, thank you. Stephanie made it through three emergency brain surgeries this week. Her condition is stable right now and there are reasons for cautious optimism. She still has a long way to go, so all prayers are gratefully accepted.
Answers, to Wednesday's Brain Teasers - There were not a lot of brave souls this time but all the riddles were solved. Dru was the first to correctly get number 2, Stacy was the first to get number 4 and came very close on number 3, and Mary C nailed number 1 and number 3 (and saw plot possibilities in number 4). Honorable mention to Maria for the most creative suggestion involving the orange juice.
On to the laughter - My only criteria for adding a funny to my blog is that it made me laugh out loud. This one did. Of course, it might be a generational thing but I'll bet it makes you laugh too. (And who can't use a little laughter to wrap up the week?)
Did I win my bet?
I'll be spending much of my weekend in a race to the finish on the "30,000 Words in February" challenge. With luck, I might just make it. How about you? Any fun plans for this weekend?

Groaner of the day: I went through a bunch of puns this morning trying to find one that passed the LOL test. This one did.
A pair of chickens walk up to the circulation desk at a public library and say, "Buk Buk BUK." The librarian decides that the chickens desire three books and grants their request...and the chickens leave.
Around midday, the two chickens return to the circulation desk quite vexed and say, "Buk Buk BuKKOOK!" The librarian decides that the chickens desire another three books and gives them another three. The chickens leave as before.
The two chickens return to the library in the early afternoon, approach the librarian, looking very annoyed and say, "Buk Buk Buk Buk Bukkooook!" The librarian is now a little suspicious of these chickens. She gives them what they request but decides to follow them.
She follows them out of the library, across town, to a park. At this point, she hides behind a tree, not wanting to be seen. As the watches, the chickens begin throwing the books at a frog in a pond - to which the frog was saying, "Rrredit Rrredit Rrredit..."
