Hello Everyone ~~ I had a lovely surprise visit today from my grandson, Scott and his
girlfriend Nicole. Scott rang a little while before they arrived, as they had been in Wangaratta to a 21st Birthday. Scott is my son, Geoff and DIL Joanne's son. They also have a daughter, Michelle who is a school teacher.
It was lovely to see Scotty and to meet Nicole. I have a photo of them to show you.
Click to enlarge. Nice picture for St Valentine's Day. Scott will be 21 in a few weeks.
Thank you both for the lovely potted plant you brought me ~~ it's lovely and you both cheered me up a lot after the sad week we have had.
Geoff works at the Whittlesea Council as a Safety Officer. So he was helping out at the
Survivors temporary city today lending a hand getting details etc.
My other son, John hasn't rung me yet so he can't be home yet. He said it would be Monday, but I thought he might get home tonight (Sun.) His doggies are fine.
Tonight I have a poem or prayer called "Always There." Author Unknown.
Hello God, I called tonight . . . . . . . . . . .To talk a little while
I need a friend who'll listen . . . . . . . . . . To my anxiety and trial.
You see, I can't quite make it . . . . . . . .Through a day just on my own, , ,
I need your love to guide me . . . . . . . . So I'll never feel alone.
I want to ask you please to keep, . . . . . My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence . . For whatever fate they're bound.
Give me faith, dear God, to face . . . . .. .Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things . . . . . . . . I can't change in any way.
I thank you God, for being home . . . . . . And listening to my call,
For giving me such good advice . . . . . . . When I stumble and I fall.
Your number, God, is the only one . . . . . That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal, . . . . . . . . . . .. I Never had to pay a dime.
So thank you, God, for listening . . . . . . To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good night, God, I love you too, . . . . . And I'll call again tomorrow.
A STUNNING SENIOR'S MOMENT.
Apparently, a self important college freshman attending a recent football game took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.
"You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one," said the student, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear . "The young people of today grew up with
Man walking on the moon
Our space probes have visited Mars
We have nuclear energy, ships and electric and hydrogen cars
Computers with light-speed processing... and more.."
After a brief silence, the senior citizen responded as follows . . .
"You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young . . . . so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little s**t, what are you doing for the next generation?"
The applause was deafening. . . . .
<><> Thank you Sherrill for that one.
One from Sue and Bob - - Thank you.
Quote of the Day.
Whatever you give a woman, she will make it greater.
If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.
If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.
If you giver her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
So if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of s**t.
Few more blonde jokes from Sue and Bob.
A blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one night. It was her turn. She rolled the dice and landed on Science and Nature. Her question was, "If you are in a vacuum and someone calls your name, can you hear it?"
She thought for a time and then asked, "Is it on or off?"
A blonde goes to the Post Office to buy stamps for her Christmas cards.
She says to the clerk, "May I have 50 Christmas stamps?"
The clerk says, "What denomination?"
The blonde says, "God, help us, has it come to this? Give me 6 Catholics, 10 Presbyterian, 10 Lutheran, 22 Baptists and 2 Mormon ones."
A girl was visiting her blonde friend, who had acquired two new dogs, and asked what their names were. The blonde responded by saying, that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex.
Her friend said, "Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that?"
"HELLOOOOOOOOO....." answered the blonde. "They're watch dogs!!"
Thank you dear Patty for the nezt one. The Coping Diet.
This is a specially formulated diet designed to help women cope with the stress that builds
during the day.

1 cup of skim milk.

The rest of the Hershey's kisses in the bag
1 tub of Hagen-Daaz ice cream with chocolate chips
4 glasses of wine (red or white)
2 loaves of garlic bread
1 family size supreme pizza
3 Snickers bars.

Remember Stressed spelled backwards is desserts.
A little boy wanted to know how it would feel to have $1,000. His mother told him to pray to God for it. He prayed for 2 weeks and nothing turned up, so he wrote a letter to
God requesting $1,000.
When the Post Office received the letter addressed to God, they opened it and decided to send it to the President. The President was so impressed and touched and amused, that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy $20. He thought that this would appear a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the $20 and sat down to write a letter of thanks to God,
It read as follows : "Dear God, thank you very much for the money. I noticed that you had to send it through the Government. As usual, those thieves deducted $980 for tax."
Where did Noah keep the bees?
In the Ark hives.
Enough for tonight my friends. I hope you all had or are having a very Happy Valentin's Day and enjoyed the weekend. Take care of each other and keep on smiling. My love and best wishes to you
all. Cheers, Merle.
