A Happy Day.

Post ~ ~ Thursday, 21st August, 2008.

Hello Everyone ~~ I hope all is well with you.
I had a lovely time with Jeanette, Pauline and
Gwen yesterday. We talked and laughed and
looked through a book I have made of some of
my blogger friends. I have the photos below.

Jeanette about to cut the cake. We sang Happy Birthday to her and I am sure
that was very memorable for her.

Jan and myself with her Birthday Cake.

I seem to have lost the photo of Pauline and Gwen - so
will post that next time.

First joke tonight was in my local paper.
It is called Leather and Relationships.

Three women: one engaged, one married and one a
mistress are chatting about their relationships and
decide to amaze their men.....that night all three will
wear a leather bodice, S &M style, stilettos and a
mask over their eyes.

A few days later they meet again.

The engaged girlfriend said: "The other night, when
my boyfriend came back home, he found me in the
leather bodice, 4" stilettos and a mask. He said,
"You are the woman of my life, I love you. . . .then
we made love all night long."

The mistress stated : "Oh. yes. The other night we
met in the office. I was wearing the leather bodice,
mega stilettos, a mask over my eyes and a raincoat.
When I opened the rain-coat, he didn't say a word.
We made passionate love all night."

The married one then said : "The other night I sent
the kids to my mother's for the night. I got myself
ready, leather bodice, super stilettos and a mask
over my eyes. My husband came in from work,
grabbed the TV controller, (remote) and a beer, and
said, "Hey Batman, what's for dinner?"

A few Money Quotes.

Strange and Unusual Facts.

up in the morning.

A pack a day smoker will lose approximately two teeth
every year.

When you sneeze, all bodily functions stop . . . even
your heart. That is why people said, "God bless you" after
a sneeze.

People don't get sick, from cold weather; it's from being
indoors a lot more.

Members of the Jury, have you reached your verdict?

Yes, we have, your honor. We find the gorgeously
sexy woman who stole the jewellery, Not Guilty.

The much married actor told his new girlfriend
that she shouldn't believe all the tales about his bad
habits -- they were just old wives' tales.

Every time he reminisces about his past achievements
I am constantly amazed. It seems the older
he gets,
the better he used to be.

What do you call a Japanese piano that keeps telling jokes?
A Yamaha--ha.

Well time to say Goodnight folks. Take good care of each
other and yourselves. Give someone a smile who doesn't
have one. Love and Best Wishes to you all.
Cheers, Merle.

Hi Merle,

Stopped by to see what you have been up to, and found out you have been up to partying with the girls. It is so nice when you can get together with friends and giggle like teen-agers again;))

I enjoyed all your 'quotes and things,' some were funny and some were even funnier..After all it is very important that we know that Alfred Hitchcock 'didn't have a belly button~~~Hee, hee...

I hope you have a nice week-end and have a lot of fun as well...

I didn't know that fact about babies being born without knee-caps.
They say you learn something new each day so I guess that fact is my new one for the day.

My wife's left-handed. I didn't realize she was such a rare bird. Though I'm a rightie, there are a few things I do left-handed. Shoot pool, for one.
