A Postcard a Day - Friday 4 March - Friday Smiles

Good Morning Friday Smilers!

It reads: Happy Friday to you.

My postcard for today comes from Russia. To be precise from Nadya, who lives in Ekaterinburg.
It is an image of the German  figure Mecki and written underneath is: "He that seeks will find".

The stamps are interesting too:
The one on the right looks like it is featuring a blood donor session. The other ones are from the series of 'kremlins' or fortified castles. The bottom one is the Moscow Kremlin and the top one is Rostov.

My week has been very exciting as the flat is really taking shape. The kitchen is nearly finished. I was hoping the carpenter would finish today, but he has been making the drawers and putting up shelves and hiding the tube from the extractor fan. 

Most of the doors are in. Later on today he will come and finish and then I have to wait until the 15th when the granite worktop will be delivered. As you can see the little stepladder takes prime place there on the right. As I am 5 ft nothing I will need it for every wall cabinet! lol.

We had the kitchen made of the same wood as the ceiling so it matches. Now it's just waiting for the granite...

But still, I am smiling from ear to ear. Have you got anything to smile about? Then please share it at Annie's blog.

I found some funnies again for you:
I smiled when I read this.

And then this modern day parable (You might have come across this one already, but I want to share it with you in case you haven't):

Parable for today
An aeroplane was about to crash; there were five passengers on board but only four parachutes.
The first passenger Holly Madison said, "I have my own reality show and I am the smartest and prettiest woman at Playboy, so Americans don't want me to die." She took the first parachute and jumped out of the plane.
The second passenger John McCain said, "I'm a senator and a decorated war hero from an elite navy unit in the United States of America." He grabbed the second pack and jumped.
The third passenger, Donald Trump, said, "I am going to be the next president of the United States, I am the smartest man in our country and I will make America great again." So he grabbed the pack next to him and jumped out.
The fourth passenger, Billy Graham, said to the fifth passenger, a ten year old schoolgirl, "I have lived a full life and served my God the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute."
The little girl said, "That's okay, Mr Graham. There's a parachute left for you. The smartest man in America took my schoolbag."

I don't envy you guys in the States. Mr Trump comes across (here in Europe) as a bit of an idiot, hence the joke. Please don't be offended if you are one of his followers. I mean no harm.

That's it from me today. Happy Friday.
Have a fun weekend and a great week ahead.


  1. Wow Lisca, your kitchen looks amazing and I'm grinning from ear to ear for you. I'm sat in my new kitchen typing this and we have both decided that it is now our fav room in the house so I really hope yours gives you as much pleasure as ours does.

  2. Morning Lisca, You postcard is lovely. It looks very vintage. Your kitchen is looking beautiful. I look forward to seeing it with the granite worktops on.

    I'd not heard the parable before. It's very funny. The poor man is really going through it with all the jokes that are around. Let's hope he doesn't have the last laugh. Barb xx

  3. The kitchen looks brilliant Lisca and the parable is excellent. I hate to say it but I hope he doesn't have the last laugh. Have a great weekend, Angela xXx

  4. OK, lots to say today. First of all, you get the coolest postcards. Secondly, I love the new kitchen- and I am five foot nothing also so I know all about the high cabinets. Your dog hotel sign is very clever-I liked that also and the joke about Donald Trump is great. I don't understand how anyone can vote for him-and I am from the United States. I think it is so appropriate. Happy day and happy weekend!

  5. You are going to be posh in your kitchen. I remember when mine was finished I snuggle up in it in the winter with Bobby, our Papillon at the time, with the lamps and the radio on.
    Enjoy !

  6. Thank you for visiting me while I slept. That is a cute postcard, but I loved the poster about dogs. I'd say that's probably true, too.

    I'm going to send that joke to EVERYONE I know, because this is FUNNY. I laughed because many Americans think he's a buffoon, too.

    You are TALL. I'm 4'11", so you TOWER over me. Like you, I have to stand on a stool to reach anything in my house that's over my head. Even my craft room and studio have tall things I can't reach.

    Your kitchen is going to be INCREDIBLE when finished. I know the feeling about clean floors. I used to clean them every two days. Now I feel like a slob because I go for at least a week.

    Have a wonderful Friday and I know you'll be smiling all through the weekend, too.

  7. The house is looking good.
    Had to giggle at the backpack joke :D

  8. The kitchen looks fabulous, the postcards and stamps are gorgeous too! Thanks for joining in Rocking Your World again - have a great Friday!

  9. I love the post card this week Lisca, and it's interesting stamps. Our stamps in UK are very boring most of the time.
    Your kitchen is going to be amazing. It is certainly looking good so far.
    I have seen your funnies on facebook and they both made me smile. Everyone seems to be agreeing about the Donald Trummp one. It makes you wonder who is voting for him.
    Have a good week. Kate x
