Happy Birthday Kenju.

Post 352 ~ ~ ~ ~ Tuesday, 30th October, 2007.

Hello My Friends ~~ I trust the world is treating you right, and
the week has started well for you. I was taken for my fortnightly
shopping trip this morning and am all stocked up again'

We have another birthday girl today, 30th and that is our friend
Kenju. I hope you have a lovely day Judy with many Happy
Returns and lots of good health and happiness for the coming year.
Please pop over and wish Judy a Happy Birthday, she's a lovely lady.

Couple more from Helen's garden.

A lovely bright, spreading Azalia.

A creamy rhododendrom, coming through an Azalia,
with Helen's hand showing us a Chinese Lantern plant.

Same plants, showing how the Lanterns hand down.

A small item, which I will call "The people in your life."

Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty;
they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.

God determines who walks into your life . . . . .
but it's up to you to decide who you let walk away,
who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go.

When there is nothing left but God, that is when you
find out that God is all you need.

Take 60 seconds and give this a shot !
All you do is simply think of those in your life
you've let in and the reason why.
Treasure them every day, , , , , , , , Amen.

A bus stops and two Italian men get on. They sat down
and engage in an animated conversation. The lady
sitting behind them ignores them at first, but her attention
is galvanised when she hears one say the following :

"Emma come first. den I come. Den two
asses come together, I come once-a-more. Two asses,
they come together again. I come again and pee twice.
Then I come one lasta time."

"You foul mouthed sex obsessed swine. "In this country
we don't speak out loud in public places about our sex lives."

"Hey, coola down lady, said the man. "Who talking about
sexa ? I'm justa tellin' my frienda how to spella
Mississippi. "

"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been
with a loose woman."
"Is that you, little Tommy Shaughnessy ?"
" Yes, it is, Father, it is."
"And who was the woman you were with ?"
"I can't be telling you, Father. I don't want to ruin her

"Well Tommy, I'm sure to find out sooner or later, so
you may as well tell me now. Was it Brenda O'Malley?"
"I cannot say."
"Was it Patricia Kelly ?"
"I'll never tell."
"Was it Liz Shannon ?"
"I'm sorry, but I can't name her."
"Was it Kathy Morgan ?"
"My lips are sealed."
"Was it Fiona McDonald ?"
"Please Father, I cannot tell you."

The priest sighs in frustration. "You're a steadfast lad
Tommy Shaughnessy, and I admire that. But you have
sinned, and you must atone. You cannot attend church
mass for three months. Be off with you now."

Tommy walks back to his pew. His friend Sean slides
over and whispers, "What'd you get ?"
"Three month's vacation and five good leads."

A couple made a deal that whoever died first would
come back and inform the other of the afterlife. Their
biggest fear was that there was no heaven. After a long
life, the husband was the first to go, and true to his word,
he made contavt.

"Rose . . . . Rose. . . ."
"Is that you, Douglas ?"
"Yes, I've come back like we agreed."
"What's it like ?"

"Well, I get up in the morning , I have sex. I have
breakfast, I have sex. I bathe in the sun, then I have
sex twice. I have lunch, then sex pretty much all
afternoon. After supper, I have sex until late at night.
The next day it starts again . . . . . "

"Oh, Douglas, you surely must be in heaven."
"Not exactly, I'm a rabbit in Queensland."

A little old lady was going up and down the halls
in a nursing home. As she walked, she would
flip up the hem of her nightgown and say,
"Super sex, super sex." She walked up to an
elderly man .in a wheelchair

Flipping her gown at him, she again said,
Super sex."
He sat silently for a moment or two looking at
her and finally answered, " I'll take the soup !"

Q. What's black and blue and brown and laying in a
A. A brunette who told too many blonde jokes.

Bye for now, Having trouble posting this.
Love and best wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.
