Hello My Friends ~~ I hope the world is treating you right in your corner of the universe.
All going well in Shepparton, bits of drizzly rain and warmer days - up to 17C (62 F) and
over night we have had some 6 and 8 C which is low 40s F.
Today was my shopping day, so the cupboards and refrigerator are stocked up again.
Everything put away and I cooked the microwavable chicken, had a Nana Nap, and it is
getting late again now. So I will get on with it.
My good friend, Robyn sent me this nice article. I hope you enjoy it.

Mrs McGervey was walking down O'Connell Street in Dublin when she met up with Father
O'Flaherty. The Father said, "Top of the morning to you. Aren't you Mrs. McGervey and
didn't I marry you and your hoosband 2 years ago?"
She replied, "Aye, that you did Father."
The father asked, "And be there any wee little ones yet?"
She replied, "Not yet, Father."
The Father said, "Well, now, I'm going to Rome next week and I'll light a candle for you
and your and your hoosband.."
She replied, "Oh, thank you Father." Then they parted ways.
Some years later they met again. The Father asked, "Well, now Mrs, McGervey, how are
you these days?"
She replied, "Oh, very well, Father." The Father asked, "And tell me, have you any wee
She replied, "Oh, yes Father, Three sets of twins and 4 singles, Ten in all."
The Father said, "That's wonderful. How is your loving hoosband doing?"

Last one for tonight. It is supposed to come with a picture of a dog taking a nap.
So just think of a tired looking dog.
An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard. I could tell from his collar and well-
fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of. He calmly came over to me.
I gave him a few pats on his head and then he followed me into my house. slowly walked
down the hall curled up in the corner and fell asleep.
An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.
The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his
spot in the hall and again slept about an hour. This continued for several weeks.
Curious, I pnned a note to his collar, "I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful, sweet dog iis and ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon, your
dog comes to my house for a nap."
The next day, he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar.
"He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3.. he's trying to catch up on his
sleep. Can I come with him, tomorrow?"
Enough for this post, I am off to bed. Take great care of yourselves and each other.
My love and best wishes to you all. See you next time. Cheers, Merle.
