Hello Nice Person.

Post 125 - - - - - - Saturday, 27th January, 2007.

Hello Everyone, and a special hello to Raggedy, thank you for your kind and lovely words. They are really appreciated. I hope that everyone is well and enjoying the
weekend. It has been a very pleasant day here today, quite cool and windy. No
air conditioner on all day, and tomorrow is looking nice also. Gives us time to catch
our breath before the next onslaught of heat.

John came again this morning and took me to get a few things that I needed.
Thanks John, I can always count on you.

My other son Geoff and his wife Joanne have gone to Tasmania for a week's holiday.
They took Geoff's car on the ferry, so they would have the means to travel around.
Tasmania is an islan state, just under Victoria on a map. Hope they enjoy the trip.
I have spoken to both my daughters in the last couple of days, so that has been great.

Tonight I have a poem sent by my friend Linda. It is called "Hello Nice Person."
I hope you enjoy it. Thanks again, Linda. (who is not a blogger)

Hello There Nce Person
Did Anyone Ever Tell You,
Just How Special You Are ?
The Light that You Emit
Might Even Light a Star.

Did Anyone Ever Tell You
How Important You Make Others Feel ?
Somebody out there is Smiling
About Love that is so Real.

Did Anyone Ever Tell You that
Many Times When They Were Sad
Your E-mail made Them Smile a bit
In Fact It Made Them Glad ?

For the Time You Spend Sending Things
And Sharing whatever You Find
There are No Words to Thank You
But Someody, Thinks You're Fine.

Did Anyone Ever Tell You
Just How Much They Like You
Well, my Friend
Today I'm Telling You.

I believe that without a friend you are missing out on a lot.

Have a nice day, and I am glad we are friends.

A dog ran into a butcher shop and grabbed a roast off the counter. Fortunately the butcher recognized the dog as belongng to one of his neighbor, who happened to be
a lawyer.

Incensed at the theft, the butcher called his neighbor and said "Hey if your dog stole a roast from my butcher shop, would you be liable for the cost of the meat?"

The lawyer replied, " Of course, how much was the roast?"

" $ 7.98,"said the butcher.

A few days later the butcher received a check in the mail for $7.98 Attached to it was
an invoice that read : Legal Consultation Service : $150.

A man goes to his doctor for a complete check-up. He hasn't been feeling well and wants to find out if he is ill. After the check-up the doctor comes out with the results of the examination.

"I'm afraid I have some bad news. You're dying and you don't have much time," the
doctor says.

"Oh no, that's terrible. How long have I got?" the man asks.

"10 " says the doctor.

"10? Ten what? Months, Weeks? What?' he asks desperate;y.

" 10...9...8...7...."


A dietitian was once addressing a large audience in Chicago. "The material we put
into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago."

"Red meat is awful. Soft drinks erode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. Vegetables can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term
harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.

"But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have or will eat it.
Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?"

A 75 year old man in the front row stood up and said, " Wedding cake."

Brother John entered "The Monasery of Silence" and the Abbott said, "Brother this
is a silent monastery; you are welcome here as long as you like, but you may not speak until I direct you to do so."

Brother John lived in the monastery for five years before the Abbott siad to him, " Brother John, you have been here five years now; you may speak two words."

Brother John said, "Hard bed."

"I'm sorry to hear that, " the Abbott siad. "We will get you a better bed."

After another five years, Brother John was called by the Abott. "You may say another two words, Brother John."

"Cold food," said Brother John, and the Abbott assured him that the food would be better in future.

On his 15th anniversary at the monastery, the Abbott again calls Brother John to his office. "Two words you may say today."

"I quit," said Brother John.

"It is probably best, you've done nothing but complain since you got here."

Well folks, that 's it, my eyes keep on closing. Keep well and happy.

Goodnight Raggedy !! Hope to be back with you all tomorrow. Cheers, Merle.

Hello dear Merle:-) I've just come in from going out for coffee with my friend's not as frigid as it was yesterday and it's snowing so softly and prettily! I took a little film footage with my camera so hopefully it turns out and I can post it:-) I really loved the "Hello Nice Person" poem...also loved everything else, my favourite being the little old man naming "wedding cake" as the food that causes the most grief and suffering after eating it! hehe I'm so glad that you've been able to see or talk to your children...I keep pretty close contact with my two boys:-) Take care dear friend! Hugs xox

Hi Merle

Grrr! I posted a comment but blogger spat the dummy - again!

What I tried to say that the poem "Nice Person" is for you, but it should read "Lovely Person".

I also liked the word play in English Language, very clever.

I'm glad it's a bit cooler for you. It was humid and steamy all night and it's overcast today, so hopefully it will rain and cool the air a little.

Have a lovely day, dear friend.

Hugs xoxo

Raggedy said...

I was overwhelmed to see the personal greeting and salutation!
Turn about is fair play I suppose you brought a tear to my eye.
Huge Hugs
Fabulous post! (Not because I was mentioned but because it really is)
I read the butcher/lawyer joke out loud to hubby and he laughed out loud. ^5
G'nite dear friend, Cheers!
