My Wish For You,

Post 348 ~ ~ ~ Friday, 26th October, 2007.

Hello Everyone ~~ Another week almost gone, and another
month almost gone. Time ~~ Slow down a little bit !!!
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your lives and
looking forward to the weekend. We put our clocks on an
hour tomorrow night in Victoria and some other states.

Well I made quite an error about my Computer class ~~
It goes for 10 hours and not ten weeks. Pity about that !!
Obviously I planned to get plenty for my money. There are
only 4 weeks all told, of 2 1/2 hours a night. We will have
to learn fast !! That instructor must have heard of blogs -
he may not be interested in them, but should be aware.

Couple more photos of my Pelargoniums tonight.

Tonight's piece is called "My wish for you." Hope you like it.

MAY YOU HAVE . . . . .

Enough happiness to keep you sweet,

Enough trials to keep you strong,

Enough sorrow to keep you human,

Enough hope to keep you happy,

Enough failure to keep you humb;e,

Enough success to keep you eager,

Enough friends to give you comfort,

Enough wealth to meet your needs,

Enough enthusiasm to look forward,

Enough faith to banish depression,

Enough determination to make each day

better than yesterday and lots of love.

HUSBAND : :That would seem like the proper thing to do."
WIFE : "Would you play golf with her ?"
HUSBAND : "I guess so."
WIFE : "Would she use my golf clubs ?"
HUSBAND : "No, she's left handed."
WIFE : - - - - silence - - - -
HUSBAND : Oh, S**t !!"

"But God, " the man says, "Why did you make her so dumb ?"

The children were lined up in the Cafeteria of a Catholic
primary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a
large pile of apples.

The nun made a note and posted it on the apple tray :
"Take only ONE apple. God is watching."

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of
the table, was a large pile of chocolate chip biscuits.
A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is
watching the apples."

An Englishman, A Scotsman, and an Irishman walk into
a pub. They proceed to each buy a pint of Guinness.

Just as they were about to enjoy their creamy beverage,
three flies landed in each of their pints and were stuck in
the thick head.

The Englishman pushed his beer away in disgust,
The Scotsman fished the offending fly out of his beer and
continued drinking it as if nothing had happened.

The Irishman too, picked the fly out of his drink, held it over
the beer and started yelling, " Spit it out, spit ot out, you
little bugger."

A blonde guy comes home from work early and hears strange
sounds coming from the bedroom. He rushes upstairs to
find his wife naked on the bed, sweating and panting.

"What's up ?" he says.
"I'm having a heart attack." cries the woman.

He rushes downstairs to grab the phone, but just as he is dialing,
his 4 year old son comes up and says, "Daddy, Daddy, Uncle
Ted is hiding in your closet and he's got no clothes on !"

The guy slams the phone down and storms upstairs into the
bedroom, past his screaming wife, and rips open the wardrobe
door. Sure enough, there's his brother, totally naked, cowering
on the closer floor.

"You rotten B*****d," says the husband, }my wife's having a
heart attack and you're running around naked scaring the kids !!"

Well, that is it for tonight my friends. Take care of yourselves and
each other. Spread some smiles around. Love and best wishes
to you all. Cheers, Merle.

You do have some beautiful flowers. Also, my wish for you is the same as you have listed on your blog. Love the jokes, I like the husband and wife type. Some are so funny, but also oh so true. Yes, time slow down, it seems we just flipped the calendars to Oct. and here the month is almost over. Days, months and years just seem to be flying by. Have a wonderful week-end.

Hi Merle,

:) that blonde guy joke was funny! And a change from all the put-downs for blonde gals!

I'm trying to catch up with my blogs...I missed everyone!

I like this one Merle:

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of
the table, was a large pile of chocolate chip biscuits.
A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is
watching the apples."

The wee fairy in the one picture is so sweet with your beautiful flowers!

Our time changes later this year than is always an adjustment for me!

Have a wonderful day!

Mary said...


What lovely flowers. I think we call them Martha Washington geraniums here. They look the same to me. They are beautiful. Mine did well this year.

Thanks for the smiles.

Dear Merle, I'm sorry you misunderstood my entry today. My family is very happy right now, about our daughter's cancer survival.

What happened yesterday, all had to do with friends. One woman I graduated High School with, has been in hospital for a month. And is in Intensive Care. I called her sister to ask about her. Her sister has 2 daughters who are very sick. One seems to be dying and the other, is having a hard time recovering from a couple of illnesses.

So, my feeling down yesterday, had to do with the shock of finding out all this sad news, about friends. It wasn't about my family.

But a lot of bad news, about friends, in one day, can be tough. But I'm determined to not let it get me down.

Hugs, Mari-Nanci

Hi Merle!

HAHA about the computer class. 10 hours, 10 weeks, whatever it takes, right? lol

LOL @the man jokes tonight. Nothing better than a dumb man joke after all the dumb jokes they tell about us.

Take care; I hope I have a good weekend. :)

Lady Di Tn said...

The jokes are better than ever. Thanks for making me laugh.
Instruction Manual would be a good hiding place for most anything.
Peace be with you.
love and prayers

Puss-in-Boots said...

Hahahaha! I like that last joke. He must have been a himbo.

Your pelargoniums are lovely, Merle. They are one flower that are easy to grow and hard to kill...just my type!

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy your daylight saving. I'm so envious...Anna Bligh has quashed the referendum Peter Beattie was going to have regarding it in Queensland. get that.

Hugs xoxo

Mountain Mama said...

Don't be too disappointed about the computer class Merle. You can learn a great deal in ten hours with such a small group.

Your flowers are so colorful. Are they Hibiscus? I'm not familiar with the flowers that grow in Australia.

I loved the story about the Nun and the apples. Hee-hee-hee! I sent it to many in my contacts list so they can smile too.
Take care Merle.

Jeanette said...

Actually, Merle, a class of 10 hours sounds much better to me than a class of 10 weeks!

Gledwood said...

I'm not sure I could do with any more trials...(!!)

ps my "meme": who was your favourite childhood bear?

Merle ~ There are two ways to look at your computer class... 1st you'll be saving a lot of TIME or second, it is costing more per hour that you had expected. Time IS money... so either way you're SAVING SOMETHING! Have a great weekend. ~ jb///
