Good Morning Coffee.

Post 486 ~ ~ ~ Friday, 25th July, 2008.

Hello Everyone ~~ In Australia we are at Friday
night, with the weekend almost here, so I guess
it will be here soon for the Northern Hemisphere.
I hope it will be a nice one for all of us.

Today is one of my granddaughter's birthday. I
hope you have had a good day Bec and enjoy the
weekend. Happy Happy Birthday. Yesterday was
my Great-Granddaughter's 5th Birthday. I hope
you had a happy day Gabby.Love from G-Grandma.

Still with the Grandkids. Tomorrow, my grand-
daughter Kate flys off to Holland for a few days to
spend with her Dad's family, her other grandma
uncles, aunts and cousins. Then she goes to France
to work for a month in a Paris restaurant. I hope
she has a wonderful trip and enjoys it all.

The next bit is about the Microwave chickens that
I buy from Woolworth's, as a couple of people were
interested in them. They come packaged in two
plastic bags, you discard the outer bag, and cook
the chicken in the inner bag for about 45 minutes.
I guess it would work with an oven bag, not sure.
I put one in a large oval stoneware dish I have,
that just fits the microwave beautifully. They turn
out very moist and tender.

My friend, Patty sent me the Good Morning Coffee.
Thank you Patty.

We can pretend we are sharing a good cup of coffee
while enjoying... Good Morning Blessings.

The blessing will only keep working . . . if it is
continually passed around. So pass it on, Folks.

If you are a recipient of a blessing,
Keep the Blessing working . . . .

By being the source of blessing to other people.

This morning when I awoke, And saw the sun above,

I softly said, "Good Morning Lord, Bless everyone
I love, Right away, I thought of you and said a
loving prayer.

That He would bless you specially, and keep you
free from care.
I thought of all the happiness a day could hold
in store,

I wished it all for you because no one deserves
it more.

I felt so warm and good inside
My heart was all aglow.

I know God heard my prayers for you,
He hears them all, you know?

Pass this on to someone else, to spread the good
feelings! I know that I did !!"
Time for some jokes ~ ~ ~

First one is from my friend Sandy. Thanks Sandy.
It is called Problem Name.

The famous Olympic skier, Picabo Street
(pronounced Peek -A-Boo) is not just an athlete. . .
She is now a nurse currently working at the
Intensive Care Unit of a large hospital. She is
not allowed to answer the hospital phone.

It caused too much confusion when she would
answer the phone and say,

"Picabo, ICU".

Lady Di sent me the next ones. Thanks Dianne.
There are four of them all called "And then the
fight started."

When I got home last night, my wife demanded
that I take her somewhere expensive . . . So I
took her to a gas station.

And then the fight started.

After retiring, I went to the Social Security office
to apply for Social Security. The woman behind
the counter asked me for my driver's license.
I looked in my pockets and realized my wallet was
at home. I told her I was sorry, but I would have
to go home and get it and come back later.

The woman said, "Unbutton yout shirt, so I did
revealing my curly silver hair.

She said, "The silver hair on your chest is proof
enough for me" and she processed my Social
Security application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about
my experience.
She said, "You should have dropped your pants.
You might have got disability too."

And then the fight started.

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high
school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken
lady swigging her drink as she sat alone.

My wife asked, :Do you know her?"
"Yes," I sighed, " She's my old girlfriend. I under-
stand she took up drinking right after we split
up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't
been sober since.

"My God, "says my wife, who would think a
person could go on celebrating that long."

And then the fight started.

I rear-ended a car this morning. So there we
were alongside the road and slowly the other
driver got out of his car. You know how some-
times you just get soooo stressed and little
things just seem funny.

Yeah, well I couldn't believe it . .he was a DWARF'

He stormed over to my car, looked at me and
shouted, "I AM NOT HAPPY."

So I looked down at him and said, " Well, then
which one are you?"

And that's when the fight started.

This one is from Jeanette. Thanks Jan.

Father O'Malley,
An Irish priest was transferred to Texas . .
Father O'Malley rose from his bed one
morning. It was a fine spring day in his new
Texas mission parish. He walked to the
window of his bedroom to get a deep breath
of the beautiful day outside. He, then noticed
there was a jackass lying dead in the middle
of the front lawn.

He promptly called the local police station. . .
The conversation went like this "

"Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How
might I help you?"

And the best of the day to yourself. This is
Fr. O'Malley at St Ann;s Catholic Church.
There's a jackass lying dead on my front lawn
and would you be so kind to send over a couple of
your lads to take care of the matter?"

Sergeant Jones, considering himself t0 be quite
a wit, replied with a smirk, "Well now Father, it
was always my impression that you people took
care of the last rites."

There was dead silence on the line for a long
moment. . . . . . .

Father O'Malley then replied, "Aye, 'tis
certainly true; but we are also obliged to notify
the next of kin."
A few bits from the papers ~~

G'day Merle! [well, I'm sure it's evening there, but our day here in Texas just started. For me anyway. LOL]

I'm going to have to look and see if I can find that microwave chicken in a bag. Sounds like it would be a time saver for sure.

Love the 'that's when the fight started'. Too, too cute. Gotta share that with hubby.

You take care and hope your weekend will treat you fine!! Hugs ---

These were great, Merle! Loved the definitions at the end. And the "and then the fight started" ones! Really funny post today.

Old Lady Lincoln said...

Good evening Merle, well once again you have some good jokes. I especially like the one of Prince Charles and the Pope.

Have a wonderful week-end. Sleep well.

Puss-in-Boots said...

I've read that one about Prince Charles and the Pope before, but it does make me wonder...who on earth had the time and the nous to figure that one out?

Love the definitions...especially the mathematician.

Have a good weekend, Merle.


Gramma Ann said...

Hi Merle,

Enjoyed the "and then the fight started" jokes. And the one about "Prince Charles" and "The Pope" was cute too.

I have never heard of the microwave chicken, except here in your kitchen.

Have a good night or good morning, whichever. I am lost on this time thing. When it's night here, I suppose it is the next day there.;)
