A Funny Thing Happened . . .

EDIT: Sorry, wrong image--here is the smaller one:

Sometimes you just do stuff for fun and the learning process. Here is a first cut on what will become Froggy Swash.

My Mother Died Today

She was 90 and had been having heart problems for the past 30 years. It wasn't unexpected yet, even when you think you have prepared yourself for the inevitable, you are caught unprepared. Her mind was sharp till the end and her sense of humor still shined through. We will miss her.

Can't Get my Wiki up so I'll use this tent instead

Sii suggested we have a Wiki for the best and worst puns on typophile. This could be added to by anyone with a high groan factor or just copied from any olde Typophile posts. The floor is open.
