Important Words.

Post 128 - - - - - Wednesday, 31st January, 2007.

Hi Everyone
, I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying your lives. I am, but
this was not the case yesterday. I had all sorts of bother with Blogger and the line
dropping out all the time and not being able to read or comment, so I went to bed.

All is well today which is great. My granddaughter Kristen rang today to thank me for
her birthday gift, which my friend Sherrill had posted for me. Thanks again Sherrill !!
I also spoke to daughter Kathy and told her about Sherrill coming to see me. We spoke about earlier days when I taught both of them to drive. And how both were brides-maids for each other. Kathy had two bridesmaids, the other one, Kim sent me a joke today which I will post later.

First - Some important Words - - - - -

The most selfish 1 letter word is "I" Avoid it.

The most satisfying 2 letter word is "WE" Use it.

The most poisonous 3 letter word is "EGO" Kill it.

The most used 4 letter word is "LOVE" Value it.

The most pleasing 5 letter word is "SMILE" Keep it.

The fastest spreading 6 letter word is "RUMOUR" Ignore it.

The hardest working 7 letter word is "SUCCESS" Achieve it.

The most enviable 8 letter word is "JEALOUSY Distance it.

The most powerful 9 letter word is "KNOWLEDGE Acquire it.

The most essential 10 letter word is "CONFIDENCE" Trust it.

<><><> Now for Kim's joke - - - -

Four friends, who hadn't seen each other in 30 years, reunited at a party.
After several drinks, one of the men had to use the rest room.
Those who remained talked about their kids.

The first guy said, "My son is my pride and joy. He started working at a successful company at the bottom of the barrell. He studied Economics and Business Admin and soon began to climb the corporate ladder and now he is President of the company. He became so rich he gave his best friend a top of the line Mercedes for
his birthday."

The second guy said, "Darn, that's terrific ! My son is also my pride and joy. He started working for a big airline, then went to flight school to become a pilot.
Eventually he became a partner in the company, where he owns the majority of it's assets .
He's so rich that he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday.

The third man said, "Well, that's terrific. My son studied in the best universities and became an engineer. Then he started his own constructon company and is now a multi- millionaire. He also gave away something very nice and expensive to his best friend for his birthday -- a 30,000 square foot mansion.

The fourth man returned from the rest room and asked, "What are all the congratulations for?" One of the three said, " We were talking about the pride we feel for the success of our sons." "What about your son?"

The fourth man replied, "My son is gay and makes a living dancing as a stripper at a
nightclub." The three friends said, "What a shame--- what a disappointment."

The fourth man replied, "No, I'm not ashamed. He is my son and I love him."
And he hasn't done too badly either. His birthday was two weeks ago, and he received a Beautiful 30,000 square foot mansion, a brand new jet and a top of the line Mercedes from his three boyfriends.

Some more smart answers to stupid questions. - - -

Mary : John says I'm pretty; Andy says I'm ugly. What do you think Peter?
Peter : A bit of both, I think you're pretty ugly.

Girlfriend : "Are you sure you love me and no one else?"
Boyfriend : "Dead sure ! I checked the whole list again yesterday."

Teacher : "Which is more important to us, the sun or the moon?"
Pupil : "The moon."
Teacher, "Why?"
Pupil : "The moon gives us light at night when we need it, but the sun gives us light only in the day time when we don't need it."

Teacher : "What do you call a person who keeps talking when people are no longer
interested ?
Pupil : "A teacher."

Waiter : " Do you want your coffee black?"
Customer : "What other colors do you have ?"

My father is so old that when he was in school, history was called cuurent affairs.

Teacher : "Sam, you talk a lot."
Sam : "It's a family tradition."
Teacher : "What do you mean?"
Sam : "Sir, my grandpa was a street hawker
, my father is a teacher."
Teacher : "What about your mother?"
Sam : "She's a woman."

Teacher : "Now, Sam, tell me frankly do you say your prayers before eating?"
Sam : "No, sir, I don't have to, my mom is a good cook."

Patient : "What are the chances of my recovering doctor?"
Doctor : "One hundred per cent. Medical records show that 9 out of 10 people die of
the disease you have. Yours is the tenth case I've treated. The others all died."

Teacher : "Can anybody give me an example of COINCIDENCE ?"
One student : "Sir, my mother and father got married on the same day at the same time."

Teacher : "George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but
admitted doing it. Now, why did his father not punish him?
One student : "Because George still had the axe in his hand."

A loyal wife.
There was a man who worked all hs life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife . . . . .

"When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me."
......And so he got his wife to promise with all of her heart that once he died, she would put all of the money in the casket with him.

Well, he died. He was lying in his casket, his wife sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When they finished the ceremony, just before the lid was to be closed, his wife said ....."Wait just a minute !" She had a box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket.

Then the undertakers locked the casket down and rolled it away.
Her friend said, " Girl, I know you weren't fool enough to put all that money in with your husband."

The loyal wife replied .... :Listen, I'm an honest loyal wife, I can't go back on my word
and I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket wit him"...

"You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him !!!???

"I sure did," said the wife. I got it all together, put it in my account and wrote him a check. If he can cash it, he can spend it."

Just a few quotes from my new cook book --- There are also lots of recipes !!

Diplomacy is the art of making your visitors feel at home, even though you wish
they were.

Don't give up. It's often the last key in the bunch, which opens the door.

I hate four letter words -- - - -wash, iron, cook, and dust.

The art of life is to like what one has, and not what one wants.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Bye for now my friends, take great care and be kind to each other. Cheers, Merle.

No wonder Kathy and Sherrill like you a lot - what with teaching them to drive and all - that takes nerves of steel! A couple of four-letter words I don't like is shop and mall. :) ec

Dear Merle, loved the four fathers, and the words of wisdom.
I have been trying in vain to post on Peter's site, blogger won't allow me to. I will try again later.
Thanks for your email I have been ill am OK now so it would seem is my ISP.
It is a bit frustrating as the fault seems to be with my server and it just drops out at will. At least they listen to me now after several draining episodes with them on the phone re previous drop outs.
Lots of Love Margaret
