Indispensable ??

Sunday October 15th, 2006 - - - - - Post 42.

Hello again Folks ~ Well it is late on Sunday night, so I had

better get a move on. My cousin arrives tomorrow, which

will be great for us both. Michelle is 8 years younger than

me, and just became a Grandma this year (on my birthday)

to a little girl, Amy. So she has joined us in the joys of

having grandchildren, and all it’s pleasures.

I hope you all have had a lovely weekend and are enjoying

life. Also I hope the week ahead will be a good one for all.

Tonight I have an article, about being Indispenable, or not.

Sometime when you’re feeling important,

Sometime when your ego is in bloom,

Sometime when you take it for granted

You’re the best qualified in the room.

Sometime, when you feel like your going

Would leave an unfillable hole

Just follow this simple instruction

And see how it humbles your soul.

Take a bucket and fill it with water,

Put your hand in it up to the wrist;

Pull it out; and the hole that’s remaining

Is a measure of how much you’ll be missed.

You may splash all you please when you enter

You can stir the water galore - - - -

But stop, and you’ll find in a minute

That it looks quite the same as before.

The moral of this quaint example

Is: “Do the best you can”;

Be proud of yourself, but remember,

There is NO indispensable man.

Author unknown.

A few quotes, jokes later tonight.

If at first you don’t succeed, do it the way your wife told you.

Anyone can be a father, but it takes a special man to be a Dad.

If it wasn’t for venetian blinds, it would be curtains for all of us.

Eve, “Do you love me?” Adam, “Who else?”

I’m trying to lose weight, but it keeps finding me.

Old bankers never die, they just lose interest.

A true friend is someone who knows all about you, but loves

you just the same.

Don’t resent growing old. Some people never get the chance.


Rabbit Resurrection.

A man was driving along the highway, and saw a rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of the car and was hit. The driver, being an animal lover, pulled over to see what had become of the rabbit. To his dismay it was dead.

The driver felt so awful, he began to cry.

A woman seeing him crying, pulled up to see what was the matter. She

stepped out of her car, and he told her he had accidently killed the rabbit

and he felt terrible. She told him

not to worry as she knew what to do, She went to the trunk of

her car and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp

dead rabbit and sprayed the contents of the can on to the rabbit,

Miraculously, the rabbit came to life, jumped up, waved it’s paw

at the two humans and hopped down the road. 50 metres away, the rabbit

stopped and waved again, hopped down the road 50 more metres, turned,

waved and hopped off down the road.

The man was astonished as he couldn’t figure out what the substance

could be in the woman’s spray can.. He ran over to

her and demanded, “What was in your spray can that you sprayed

on to that rabbit?”

The woman turned the can around so that the man could read

the label. It said: “Hare Spray, Restores Life to Dead Hare.

Adds a permanent Wave.”

A wise schoolteacher sends this note to all parents on the

first day of school: “If you promise not to believe everything your

child says happens at school, I’ll promise not to believe

everything he says happens at home.

A Sunday school teacher asked the children just before she dismissed

them to go to church. “And why should we be quiet in

church?” Little Annie replied, “Because people are sleeping.”

A very gracious ladywas posting a Bible to her brother.

The postal clerk asked if there was anything breakale in here?

“Only the Ten Commandments. ” she replied.

A man isn’t really poor if he can still laugh. Anon.

Bye for now, Take care and be happy my friends. Merle.
