Empty-Handed?

A little Thanksgiving giggle--
my hubby is half-(VERY) Greek (my sweet daughter is named after his Yiayia) so I'm really getting the accent here (and the joke).

An Italian grandmother is giving directions to her grown grandson who is coming to visit with his wife:


"You comma to de front door of the apartmenta. I am inna apartmenta 301.
There issa bigga panel at the front door. With you elbow pusha button 301. I will buzza you in. Come inside, the elevator is on the right. Get in, and with you elbow pusha 3. When you get out, I'mma on the left. With you elbow, hit my doorbell."


"Grandma, that sounds easy, but why am I hitting all these buttons with my elbow?

"What . . . you coming empty handed? "

Hi there,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you liked my gingerbread house. It sells for $19.95 here in Canada after you purchase three cards. Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner this week.
