Prayer Request.

Post 426 ~ ~ ~ Thursday, 20th March, 2008.

Hello my friends ~~ Just a short post tonight to wish
you all a very Blessed and Happy Easter. Thank you
all for your comments and I hope to get around to
you all before I go on leave for a few days or a week.

I would like to ask for prayers for my niece, Vicki,
Peter's daughter as she has surgery ahead in the next
couple of weeks. Peter rang me today, most upset,
naturally, so I hope and pray that all will be well
with Vick and she will soon be well again.

Thank you Hootin' Anni and Jim for the awards
you have given me. I don't know if they are really
deserved but they are much appreciated, so
thank you both very much.

Will find a few jokes, since I am here ~ ~ ~

The 6th grade teacher, Ms. Rock, asked her class,
"Which body part increases to ten times its size
when stimulated?"

No one answered until little Marcy stood up, angry,
and said, "You should not be asking 6th graders a
question like that. I'm going to tell my parents,
and they will tell the principal who will then fire you."

With a sneer on her face, she then sat back down.
Ms. Rock ignored her and asked the question again.

Finally , Bruce stood up, looked around nervously,
and said, "The body part that increases ten times
its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye."

Ms. Rock said, "Very good, Bruce," then turned to
Marcy and continued, "As for you, young lady, I
have three things to say,
1. You have a dirty mind.
2. You didn't read your homework, and
3. One day you are going to be very, very disappointed."

A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's
office. After his check-up, the doctor called the wife
into his office alone.

He said, "Your husband is suffering from a severe
disease, combined with horrible stress. If you don't
want him to die, each morning, fix him a healthy
breakfast. Be pleasant and make sure he is in a good
mood. For lunch make him a nutritous meal. For
dinner prepare a especially nice meal for him. Don't
burden him with chores, as he probably had a hard
day. Don't discuss your problems with him, it will
only make his stress worse. And most importantly,
make love with your husband several times a week
and satisfy his every whim. If you can do this for the
next ten months to a year, I think your husband will
regain his health completely."

On the way home, the husband asked his wife,
"What did the doctor say ?"

"You're going to die." she replied.

Jack and Joan were having some problems at home
and were giving each other the silent treatment.

But then Jack realized that he would need his wife
to wake him at 5 am for an early morning drive with
his friends to pay golf. Not wanting to be the first
to break the silence - and so lose the war, he wrote
on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5 am," and
gave it to his wife.

The next morning, Jack woke up, to discover it was
already 9 am. He knew that his friends would have
left without him. Furious, he was about to go and
see why his wife hadn't awakened him when he
noticed a piece of paper by the bed.

The paper said, "It is 5 am. Wake up !!"

Some great insults or comebacks or I wish I had
said that.

I go to the theatre to be entertained. I don't want to
see rape, sodomy, incest and drug addiction. I can
get all that at home. ~ ~ ~ Peter Cook.

I didn't like the play, but then I saw it under adverse
conditions ~~ the curtain was up.~ ~ Groucho Marx.

"I really can't come to your party, I can't bear fools," a
woman told Dorothy Parker. "That's strange, your
mother could." she replied.

I don't even know what street Canada is on. Al Capone.

He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot, but
don't let that fool you. He really is an idiot.

What's on your mind? If you'll excuse the over
statement. ~ ~ ~ Fred Allen.

If she were cast as Lady Godiva, the horse would
steal the show. ~ ~ ~ Patrick Murray.

Enough for tonight. Take care of yourselves and each
other. Have a wonderful and blessed Easter my friends.
Please remember Vicki in your prayers, and also Peter.
Love and best wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.

Sure, Merle.
Vicki will be in my thoughts and prayers =)
Take care, my friend.

Jim said...

Hi Merle, you have a nice Easter. Happy Easter Early. I hope you enjoy all those visits you do and get.
I'm sorry about Vickie, I will pray for her and Peter and the family.

Also you are good about putting things on your sidebar, very good. Are you using a New Blogger template, I think things go on easier with it? I have to learn how to do it in HTML with my old template. So mine might not go on for a long time!

I'll bet your Ms. Rock asks her question differently in her next class.
I liked today's insults (I call these 'putdowns') or comebacks really well also. I wish I could remember them.

Good afternoon Merle, love the husband and wife joke, what the doctor told the wife, but what the wife told the husband. LOL

I'll keep your son and niece in my thoughts and prayers. Hope it's nothing serious.

Sleep well my friend, Patty

I pray Vicki's surgery goes well and she makes a fast recovery.

Great funnies, as usual Merle. Thanks for the smiles.
Happy spring and have a wonderful resurrection day.
