Not in Kansas Any More: Funny Friday

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Funny Friday:a multi-blogger challenge: one picture, five captions,  | developed and run by | #MyGraphics

1. Passenger: Bobby Joe, I think we took a wrong turn somewhere.
Driver: Yeah, looks like we're not in Kansas any more.

2. Driver (to himself): Jeez, when dad said it was a dry season out in the alfalfa fields, he wasn't kidding.

3. Woman on vacation from Iowa walking the beach with her friend: See, Susan, I told you he was stalking me.

NOTE: Although I've said this in jest, stalking, true stalking, is not a joke, it's dangerous. If you need help, reach out and get it.

4. Little child on the second day of his vacation to his mom: See mom, I told you they go out in the morning and hide shells. It's just like Easter eggs.

5. trump (angrily, to his cabinet): I was talking about fires. I said to sweep the forests, not the beaches.

 And now for something yummy:

Refrigerator Whipped Peach Pie

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp sugar
4 TBSP butter, melted

2 cups heavy cream
1 package (3 oz) peach jello
1/4 cup peach preserves
1/2 to 3/4 of a peach, pitted, skinned and chopped (can slice the rest for garnish)

*Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie plate.
*Beat the heavy cream and jello granules until soft peaks form. While that is beating, whisk together the peach preserves and 1 TBSP water until smooth. 
*Add the peach preserves to the heavy cream and beat until stiff peaks hold. Remove about 1/3 of a cup of the whipped cream, seal in a sandwich bag and store in the fridge for the garnish.
*Gently fold the chopped peach into the remaining whipped cream.
*Pour into the crust, smooth so it's even and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Garnish with reserved whipped cream and/or peach slices if desired. 


  1. Man, I LOVE peach Jello! I haven't had that in forever!
    So, you KNOW my favorite is the ridiculous Trump "sweeping". Right? Ugh.
    Have an amazing weekend, friend <3

  2. Bwahahahaha! Great responses!
    I would add: When farmers go on vacation...

  3. And I’m so proud of me! I learned how to share. (I tweeted!)

  4. This could be a prep for the wall. LOL
    I like 2-4 best but all were great captions.
    Now, the pie, the pie looks refreshing and perfect here in GA since it is the peach state.

  5. We are at the end of peach season (not grown here, shipped in from Pennsylvania)oh well. Peaches are not the same shipped in. I must pick them from a tree (living in Kansas and Arkansas taught me that - U Pick orchards for peaches in both states) Having lived in Kansas and (briefly) Iowa (and yes, Florida), I got such a kick out of this!

    1. Given where you've lived, I bet you did like this pic. I took it on Marco Island.

  6. I love #5 and the peach pie looks divine.

  7. I was conflicted about what I was looking at-with the pic of the tractor. The sand was so white, I thought it was snow. The ocean is was made it click Great pic! Love the line about 'Not being in Kansas' anymore-Great to play off of familiar territory and words.
