The Friendship Candle.

Post 149 - - - - - Saturday, 24 th February, 2007.

Hi Everyone ~~ I hope you have had a good day or are about to have a good day. It
has been a little cooler here today, so that has helped me quite a lot. Maybe it will be OK tomorrow too, as it is predicted to be 28 C, about what we had today.

Well my son called in this morning to say hello and got the usual request for a couple of small jobs, fixing a hose fitting and putting up a hook for me. I hadn't spoken to
him for a couple of days, so told him that I had a ct scan, and he said he knew. So at
least he reads my blog sometimes. Hi John !!

Now something to post - - - -"The Friendship Candle" sent to me today by my
dear friend Jeanette so I hope you enjoy it. Thanks Jan!!

The Friendship Candle.

I am not going to be the one who lets it die, I found it unbelievable - - - -

Angels have walked beside me all my life --- and they still do.

This is to all of you who mean something to me,
I pray for your happiness.
The candle of Love, Hope, and Friendship.


This candle was lit on the 15 th of September, 1998

Someone who loves you has helped
Keep it alive by sending it to you.

Don't let The Candle of Love, Hope and Friendship die !
Pass it on to all your friends and everyone you love !
May God richly bless you as you keep this candle burning.
I received this today for the first time and I hope it comes back someday again.

Please keep this candle alive.

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow,
Don't walk behind me,
I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

For those who take life too seriously - - -

1. Save the whales. Collect the whole set.

2. A day without sunshine is like, night.

3. On the other hand, you have different fingers.

4. I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.

5. 42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

6. 99 per cent of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

7. I feel like I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe.

8. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then
used against you.

9. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.

10. Honk if you love peace and quiet.

11. Remember half the people you know are below average.

12. Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how popular it remains.

13. Nothing is fool-proof to a talented fool.

14. Atheism is a non- prophet organization.

15. He who laughs last thinks slowest.

16. Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

17. Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

18. The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

19. I drive too fast to worry about cholesterol.

20. I intend to live forever -- so far so good.

21. Borrow money from a pessimist -- they don't expect it back.

22. If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends ?

23. My mind is like a steel trap -- rusty and illegal in 37 states.

24. Quantum mechanics: The dreams stuff is made of.

An Indian walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand , pulling a male buffalo
with the other. He says to the waiter, "Want coffee."

The waiter says, "Sure, Chief. Coming right up."
He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee. The Indian drinks the coffee down in one
gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of the animal
to splatter everywhere and then just walks out.

The next morning the Indian returns. He has his shotgun in one hand, pulling
another male buffalo with the other. He walks up to the counter and say to the waiter, "Want coffee."

The waiter says, "Whoa, Tonto ! We're still cleaning up your mess from yesterday.
What was all that about, anyway?" The Indian smiles and proudly says - - -

"Training for position in United States Congress :
Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull,
leave mess for others to clean up,
disappear for the rest of the day.
