What Family Means.

Post 460 ~ ~ ~ Tuesday, 3rd June, 2008.

Hello Everyone ~~ I hope the world is treating
you well and you are enjoying your lives. I am
fine. My Home Care lady came today and did
the floors etc and helped me change to Winter
flannelette sheets, so I will be nice and warm
when I finally get to bed tonight.

Thank you all who have congratulated my
Granddaughter, Kate on her upcoming trip to
France. I am sure she will have great time and
she deserves it as she has always worked hard
and saved her money over the years.

As my posts have become too long lately, I will
post a small item tonight, sent by Barbara.

Family ~ ~ ~ Thanks Barbara.

Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the
company we are working for could easily replace
us in a matter of days.

But the family we left behind will feel the loss
for the rest of their lives.

And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
into work than our own family, an unwise
investment indeed, don't you think?

Do you know what the word FAMILY means?


A very gentle southern lady was driving across
the Savannah River Bridge in Georgia one day.
As she neared the top of the bridge, she noticed
a young man fixing to jump.
She stopped her car, rolled down the window and
said, "Please please .don't jump. Think of your
mother and father."

He replied, "Mom and Dad are both dead. I'm
going to jump."

She said, "Well think of your wife and children.
He replied, "I'm not married and I don't have
any kids."

Grasping for any opportunity, she cried, "Think of
your job and the work still to be done.

"I was fired today and have no prospects of another

Running out of ideas, she appealed to his patriotism
and said, "Well, think about Robert E. Lee."
He replied. "Who is Robert E. Lee?"
She replied, "Well bless your heart sugar, just go
ahead and jump."

This next joke was sent to me by Biker Bob.
Thank you Sue and Bob, in England.

The blonde and brunette women exchange a look,
acknowledging just how good looking this man is.

The man getting off the elevator on the 12th floor.
The women watch him exit the elevator.

Then the brunette turns to the blonde and says,
"Gosh, was he good-looking, but hey someone ought
to give him some Head and Shoulders."
To which the blonde thinks for a few seconds then
then replies . . . . .
"How the hell do you give shoulders?"

The vicar in a small town explains to the
conregation that he must move to a larger
congregation that will pay more.

There is a hush in the church, as no one wants
him to leave.
Ross Smmith, who owns seveal car dealerships
in Southland and Otago, stands up and proclaims:
If the vicar stays, I will provide him with a new
Holden every year and his wife with a Honda mini-
-van to transport their children,

The congregation sighs in appreciation and applaud.
Sam Brown, a successful entrepeneur and publican
stands and says, "If the vicar will stay here, I'll
pesonally double his salary and establish a foundation
to guarantee private seondary school of his children."
More sighs and loud applause.

Agnes Jones, age 88, stands and announces with a
smile , If the vicar stays, I will give him sex."
There is total silence.

The preacher, blushing. asks her: "Mrs Jones,
whatever possessed you to say that?"

Agnes' 90 year old husband Joe is now trying to hide,
holding his hands and shaaking his head from side to
side, while his wife replies, "Well, I just asked my
husband how we could help, and he said "screw the
vicar." "

Well my friends, I have to close this now as I can't
keep my eyes open. Love and Best Wishes to you all.
Cheers, Merle.

Hi Merle -- Please keep us posted on Kate's French visit. I know she will just love it over there.

And thank you for the blonde joke. I am taking it for face value, very funny!
(Then your Detroiter joke was like the lawyer jokes with the punch line, "it is hard to find a lawyer in Heaven. I am sorry I didn't catch on. I must be your densest reader.)

It somehow seems to make one sleep better when the house and sheets are clean. It is really starting to get hot here, about 90F today. ec

Oh my, love the blonde and brunette joke and also Mrs. Jones comment. Have a great evening, sleep well on the nice warm flannel sheets. In the winter I sleep on flannel sheets and also sleep in a flannel gown. These old bones get colder than they use to.
