Happy Valentine's Day

Post 140 - - - - - - Tuesday, 13 th February, 2007.

Hi Everyone ~~ Another day is nearly over here
and it has been a good one for me.
I hope it has been a good one for all of my friends. My lady came and cleaned the
floors and shower etc; I washed the sheets and we put fresh ones on my bed. The
cable TV man came, fixed that by replacing the decoder box. This immediately fixed
my blurry normal TV, so that is all great. My stereo is also fixed; it just had a cd put
in crooked, (by me), so the door opener, wouldn't !! The only repair job needed is for my diabetes machine to have a new battery, or maybe a new machine. I am hoping to do that tomorrow, so things are looking up around here !!

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day for the 14th February.

Many years ago, 54 to be exact, I was married on Valentine's Day to my first husband
when I was almost 19 years old. We had one son who is 52 now, and then went on to
adopt 3 more kids who are now a son 49, two daughters who are 47 and 45.
They were definitely the very best part of this marriage, which ended in divorce after
27 years. Such a romantic idea to marry on Valentines !!!

Several people have sent the next piece for this special day - - - -

For God so loV ed the world,

T hat whosoever

Believeth I n Him

Should N ot perish,

But have E verlasting life. John 3 : 16

A defense attorney was cross-examining a police officer during a felony trial - it
went like this :

Q. Officer, did you see my client fleeing the scene ?
A. No sir, but I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the
offender running several blocks away.

Q. Officer, who provided this description ?
A. The officer who responded to the scene.

Q. A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you
trust your fellow officers ?
A. Yes sir, with my life.

Q. With your life ? Let me ask you this then officer -- do you have a locker room
in the police station -- a room where you change your clothes in preparation
for your daily duties ?
A. Yes sir, we do.

Q. And do you have a locker in that room ?
A. Yes sir, I do.

Q. And do you have a lock on your locker ?
A. Yes sir.

Q. Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, that you
feel it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with those same
officers ?
A. You see sir, we share the building with a court complex, and sometimes lawyers
have been known to walk through that room.

With that, the courtroom erupted in laughter, and a prompt recess was called.

Did you hear about the man who drowned in a vat of varnish ?
Dreadful end, but a beautiful finish.

Bumper sticker -- Man who run in front of car get tired.
Man who run behind car get exhausted.

A woman went to a doctor's office
where she was seen by one of the new doctors.
After about 4 minutes in the examination room, she burst out, screaming as she
ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was
and she told him her story.

After listening, he had her sit down in another room and told her to relax. The
older doctor marched down the hallway to the back where the first doctor was and
demanded, "What's the matter with you ? Mrs Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and 7 grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant ?"

The new doctor calmly continued to write on his clipboard and without looking up.
said, "Does she still have the hiccups ?"

A wife was in bed with her lover when she heard her husband's key in the door.
"Stay where you are," she said. "He's so drunk he won't even notice you're in bed
with me." Sure enough, the husband lurched into bed none the wiser, but a few minutes later, through a drunken haze, he saw six feet sticking out at the end of the bed. He turned to his wife : "Hey, there are 6 feet in this bed. There should only
be four. What's going on ?"

"Nonsense," said his wife, "You're so drunk you miscounted. Get out of bed and try again. You can see better from over there." The husband climbed out of bed and
counted, "One, two, three, four. You're right, you know."

The man told his doctor that he wasn't able to do all the things around the house
that he used to do.

When the examination was complete, he said, "Doc, I can take it. Tell me in plain
English what is wrong with me ?"

"Well in plain English," the doctor replied, " you're just lazy."

"OK," said the man, "Now give me the medical term so I can tell my wife !!"

Joy Des Jardins said...

Well, you're practically all brand new aren't you Merle? It always feels good to get those niggly little things taken care of. It makes me feel better too. Happy Valentine's Day dear friend....

Mountain Mama said...

Hey Merle, I didn't marry on Valentine's Day but it ended the same as yours, leaving me with five kids and enough stretch marks to print a map!
I wouldn't trade those kids for anything on earth or elsewhere.
The story about the lady with the hiccups made me laugh out loud!
I said I wouldn't trade my kids for anything, but I didn't mean I wanted to do it all over again at age 68!LOL
Hope you are having a wonderful week.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Wow, Merle! So many repairs. Great going!

Meow said...

Hi Merle, glad all those annoying things are getting repaired.

Hope your Valentines Day is full of fun.
Take care, Meow
