Hi My Friends ~~ It is almost midnight, so this won't be a very long post. Do I hear a
large sigh of relief ? I have been busy cooking again today and the time has got away.
We have two birthdays tomorrow of two blogging friends, so wish them a happy day.
First we have our friend Kenju from Imagine and also another friend Jim who is in Guatemala at present doing volunteer work at an orphanage. I hope Judy and Jim both have a wonderful day for their special day.
This lovely e - mail was sent to me by my good friend Nancy. Thank you so much Nancy. I have changed it a little.
Dear God, The person reading this is beautiful, classy, and strong and I love him/her.
Help him/her live his/her life to the fullest.
Please promote him/her and cause him/her to excel above expectations.
Help him/her to shine in darkest places and love where it is impossible to love.
Protect him/her at all times, lift him/her up when he/she needs you the most and let
him/her know that when He/She walks with you, He/She will always be safe.
Just a few jokes now ~ ~ ~
Now who says blondes are not intelligent? Last year I replaced several windows in my house and they were the expensive double-pane energy efficient kind. But this week I got a call from the contractor complaining that his work has been completed for a whole year and I had yet to pay for them.
Boy of boy, did we go round? Just because I am female doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid So, I proceeded to tell him, just what his fast talking sales guy had told last year . . . . "that in one year the windows would pay for themselves."
There was silence on the other end of the line so I just hung up and I haven't heard back. Guess I must have won that silly argument.
Marooned on a South Seas island, a man with a beard down to his knees is walking on the beach. Suddenly a beautiful woman emerges from the surf.
"Been here long?" she asks. "Since 1981," he replies.
"How long since you had a cigarette?" "Eleven years."
She unzips a pocket in the sleeve of her wet suit, pulls out a pack of cigarettes, lights one and hands it to him. He inhales greedily. "How long since you had a drink of whiskey?" "Eleven years."
She unzips the other sleeve and offers him a flask. He takes a long drink and looks at her adoringly. "How long," she asks coyly, :since you played around?"
"Eleven years," She starts to unzip the front of her wet suit.
"Gosh," he says, you got a set of golf clubs in there?"
A professor walked into a bar and said, "Bring me a martinus."
The bartender smiled and said, "You mean martini?"
"If I want more than one," snapped the professor, "I'll order them."
Simon was an inveterate fisherman, well known forexaggerating the size of the 'one that got away.' But then there came a day when he actually caught two enormous flounders. He immediately invited a few friends over to dine, then tried to figure out how best to serve the fish. "If I use both it will seem ostentatious." he told his wife.
"Why not serve a piece of each?" she suggested.
"No, If I cut them up, nobody will believe I caught two giant flounders." Simon racked his brain. Then he had an idea.The guests were seated at the table when their host strode in with a platter, holding the biggest flounder they'd ever seen. Suddenly, Simon stumbled and fell. Everyone cried out in dismay as the fish crashed to the floor, but Simon quickly brushed himself off.
"Dear," he called out to his wife, "Bring in the other flounder."
An English tutor was explaining the value of prepared English notes to his students.
"These notes will do half the work for you," he continued, because everything is already analysed."
"I'll take two," said a voice from the back of the class."
Young man at a marriage bureau : "All I want is a girl with a sense of humor who can cook. Is that too much to ask of an heiress?"
Well I got to this stage last night and pressed publish, but no way would it do that. Hope to have better luck this morning. Take great care of yourselves and each other.
Love and Best Wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.
