Post 549 ~~ Sunday, 21st December, 2008.
Hello all my dear friends ~~ This will be my last post for a little while. My daughter, Kathy is coming tomorrow to pick me up to go to her home. As it is a long drive, she will stay the night and we will head off on Tuesday morning.
My son Geoff and his wife, Joanne arrived on Friday night and stayed overnight and we
exchanged presents, and they had not seen my new porch roof or the gazebo. They liked
both of them, and Jo wants a gazebo in their yard now. My other son, John called around
while they were here.
Geoff thought up a plan to buy a trailer load of mulch to put all around my garden. We chose some nice dark brown mulch. Then after weeding quite a lot, they proceeded to spread it around. They worked hard, both of them and it looks really nice.
So Thank you Geoff and Jo for doing that and it was a great present.
We have two dear friends who are celebrating their wedding anniversaries today.
First my good friend from Yarrawonga, Gwen and her husband Brian have been married
for 51 years. A very Happy Anniversary to you both and many, many more.
Next a good blogging friend from the U.S. Janice and her husband celebrate 29 years.
So I hope you both have a lovely anniversary and many, many more.
Now to find something to post. I am a couple of days late, but was so tired, couldn't
keep my eyes open last night, and visitors the night before. This supervising is very tiring!!
I have received this many times, but this copy is from my dear friend Jeanette.
Many thanks Jan for this and so many other things you send.
I wrote your name on a piece of paper, but by accident, I threw it away.
I wrote your name on my hand, but it washed away.
I wrote your name in the sand, but the waves whispered it away.
I wrote your name in my heart and forever it will stay.
I believe in angels, the kind that heaven sends. I'm surrounded
by angels, but I call them my friends.
Time for some jokes - - -
One beautiful December evening Huan Cho and his girlfriend Jung Lee wer sitting by the side of the ocean. It was a romantic full moon, when Huan Cho said, "Hey baby, how about
"Oh no, not now, let's look at the moon", said Jung Lee.
"Oh, c'mon baby, let's you and I play Weeweechu. I love you and it's a perfect time." Huan Cho begged.
"But I'd rather just hold your hand and watch the moon."
"Please Jung Lee, just once play Weeweechu with me."
Jung Lee looked at Huan Cho and said, "OK, we'll play Weeweechu."
Huan Cho grabbed his guitar and both sang . . . .
"Weeweechu a melly Chlistmas,
Weeweechu a melly Chlistmas,
Weeweechu a melly Chlistmas, and a Happy New Year.
(And all those with dirty minds -- shame on you.)
Thank you dear Barbara for that joke.
My good friend Bev at Mountain Mama sent me the next one. Thank you Bev.
It could be a Christmas or Thanksgiving Turkey. Pregnant turkey story.
One year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my sister's house for the traditional feast.
Knowing how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to play a trick. She told my sister she needed something from the store.
When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen and inserted it in the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey. She then
placed the bird(s) back in the oven.
When it was dinner time, my sister pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to
remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird.
With a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed, "Patricia, you've cooked a
pregnant turkey." At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to cry.
It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs !!
My friend Sandy of AIP sent this one some time ago. Thank you Sandy.

During one of her daily classes, a teacher, trying to teach good manners, asked her students the following question :
"If you were on a date having dinner with a nice young lady, how would you let her know that you have to go to the bathroom? Yes, Michael?"
Michael said, "Just a minute, I have to go pee."
The teacher responded by saying, "That would be rude and impolite. What about you Sherman, how would you say it?"
Sherman said, "I am sorry, but I really need to go to the bathroom. I'll be right back."
"That's better, but it's still not very nice to say the word 'bathroom' at the dinner table.
And you, little Johnny, how would you explain it?"
Little Johhny answered, "I would say : 'Darling, may I please be excused for a moment? I have to shake hands with a very dear friend of mine, to whom I hope to introduce you after dinner.'"
The teacher fainted.
Q. How do you keep your husband from reading your e mail?
A. Rename the folder, " Instruction Manual."
A couple drove down a country road for several miles not saying a word. An earlier
discussion had led to an argument and neither wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically,
"Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," said the wife, "in-laws."
A woman came home, screeching her car into the driveway, and ran into the house. She
slammed the door and shouted at the top of her lungs, "Honey, pack your bags. I won the lottery."
The husband said, "Oh my God, What should I pack, beach stuff or mountain stuff?"
"Doesn't matter," she said. "Just get out."
A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel, and were standing in the foyer discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why?" they asked as they moved off.
"Because," he said, "I can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."
I will leave it there for tonight. I hope you found something of interest. I wish you all a
wonderful Christmas and hope you enjoy all the festivities. Take great care and I will be back in about a week. My love and best wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.
