Good Karma..

Post 313 - - - - - - Sunday, 16th September, 2007.

Hi My Friends ~~ I hope you have all had a great weekend
and for our overseas friends it is not quite over. So I hope the
last lap will be good for you all. Everything here is going well,
so I won't be complaining. That doesn't work anyway, so we
may as well conserve our energy. I had two picures on, but
have lost one .

This is my Crossword cousin, Michelle. We do one every Saturday and
then ring each other to complete it if necessary. This week it was a lot
easier. Her niece was reading my blog, so I hope this is s surprise for her.
Hi Vivienne !!

Tonight's first item is called "Good Karma" and was sent by my friend
Robyn from Puss in Boots. Thank you Robyn.

Time for a few jokes - - - -

A little boy was doing his maths homework. He said to himself,
"Two plus five, that son of a bitch is seven. Three plus six, that
son of a bitch is nine."

His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, "What are
you doing? "My math homework." said the little boy.

"And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?" she asked.
"Yes," he answered.

Infuriated , the mother asked the teacher next day, "What
are you teaching my son in math?"

The teacher replied, " "Right now, we are learning addition."
The mother asked, " And are you teaching them to say, 'two
plus two , that son of a bitch is four?"

After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, "What I
taught them was two plus two, the sum of which is four."

My wife left me - - - I don't understand.
After the last child was born, she told me we had to cut back
on expenses. I had to give up drinking beer. I was not a big
drinker, maybe a couple of 6 packs on weekends.

Anyway, I gave it up but I noticed she came home from grocery
shopping and when I looked at the receipt, I noticed $45.00
on make-up.

I said, "Wait a minute, I've given up beer and you haven't given
up anything. "
She said, "I buy that make-up for you, so I can look pretty for you."

I told her, "Hell, that's what the beer was for."

I don't think she will be back.

Understanding Engineers - - -
To the optimist, the glass if half full.
To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

A man went to the Police Station wishing to speak with the
burglar who had broken into his house the night before.

"You''ll get your chance in court," said the Desl sergeant.

"No, no, no," said the man. "I want to know how he got into
the house, without waking my wife. I've been trying to do
that for twenty years."

Three convicts escape from prison. They make it to a nearby
town but are confronted by a policeman.

"Hey, aren't you those escaped convicts ?" he asks.
Thinking on his feet the first convict looks around him and
said, "No, I'm Mark, Mark Spencer."
The second followed his lead and said, "My name is William,
W. H. Smith."
The third said, " My name is Ken . . . Tucky Fried Chicken."

A man and his wife are dining at a plush restaurant, and the
husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging her crink
as she sits alone at a nearby table.

The wife asks, "Do you know her?"
"Yes," sighs the husband. "She's my ex girlfriend. I understand
she took to drinking right after we split up, seven years ago, and
I hear she hasn't been sober sinnce."

"My God !" says the wife, "Who would think a person could go on
celebrating so long?"
Just a few quotes to close with - - -

Just living is not enough. One must gave sunshine, freedom,
and a little flower. - - - Hans Christian Anderson.

The purpose of life is a life of purpose. - - Robert Byrne.

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope
that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything you gave me." - - - - Erma Bombeck.

The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to
walk on the earth. - - - Chinese Proverb.

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the
world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to
plan the day. - - - -Elwyn Brooks White.

Life is simple, it's just not easy. - - -Author Unknown.

That is enough for tonight. Take care of yourselves and
each other. Spread some sunshine and smiles around.
Love and best wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.

The DL had nothing on Mother as her version of #10 was "Don't say anything at all unless it is something good".
How funny those jokes are. Husband and thief were a hoot.
Crossword puzzles is something else nice to know about you.
glad you are having nice weather. I had to put socks on today but I will not complain all I have to do is think AUGUST.
Again thanks for making me smile.
love and prayers

Hi Miz Merle...I'm just in from an outing...I'll be back to the old blog stone!
Enjoyed your posting...the addition and the KY Fried!

Mountain Mama said...

I like crosswords too. My mom did also.
your jokes are hillarious! I especially like the one about the math student. LOL
I copied it and sent it to some of my contacts.
Hope you have a great week Merle. It's Sunday afternoon here, and a rainy one at that. It isn't officially Autumn here yet until the 23rd, but the weather man apparently didn't know about that. We are having cool foggy mornings and the leaves are falling already too. I always begin to feel more relaxed when the weather is like this. Like getting ready got hibernation. LOL

Granny said...

I like the math student joke.

Glad you're doing well.

Alice said...
