Hi Everyone ~ ~ Here we go again, sorry it has been awhile but I have
had a very mixed week. On Monday my computer was fixed, so that
was good. Then my light went bung, but that is right now. Shopping
on Tuesday went well, until I was putting things away, when trying to
carry 2 two litre bottles of Fruit juice, I tripped on the back door-step.
I should have taken 2 trips, as I don't have a lot of strength nowadays.
Well I fell forward, wasn't hurt badly, BUT I couldn't get up. I tried and
tried and finally rang my Safety Pendant, and asked for my son to come
and help me up. The lady rang and said John is on his way and would
be 5 to 8 minutes. So he got me up easily, and we rang and thanked
them for the help. I have had the pendant for years and years, and
that was the first time I have had to use it.
I do hope you all have had a better week than me. Hope the weather
is nice for you. Today is my dear friend, Jeanette's Birthday. So Please
pop oner to wish her a happy day. I hope you had a lovely day,dear Jan.
Remember last birthday here with dear Gwen and Pauline.
This is my niece, Vicki, Peter's daughter, taken by my son John recently.
She has nearly as many magnets on her fridge as I have. I guess the toys are for
her grandsons, when they visit. John said she looked so much better than the
last time he had seen her.
Tonight's first item is called "Daffodills." Author unknown.
There was this man who was pronounced dead for 20 miutes on the operating
and as far as "Seeing the Light " goes. . . . . .
He said he went to heaven and it was of visions and senses that a human cannot
express. The streets of Gold that everybody talks of was but a small speck of
the beauty that radiated from this wondrous place.
But what he most vividly remembers is Jesus walking with him as He led him to
Acres and Acres of Daffodills far and beyond. The man said, "Wow, I looove
daffodills, they're my favorite flower!"
Jesus simply replied, "Why does that surprise you? I said that I was going to
prepare a place ESPECIALLY FOR YOU."

Fifteen minutes into the flight from Melbourne to Sydney, the captain
announced, "Ladies and gentlemen, one of our engines has failed.
There is nothing to worry about. Our flight will take an hour longer
than scheduled, but we still have three engines left."
Thirty minutes later the captain announced, "One more engine has
failed and the flight will take an additional two hours. But don't worry. . .
We can fly just fine on two engines."
An hour later the captain announced, "One more engine gone and our
arrival will be delayed another 3 hours. But don't worry . . we still have
one engine left."
A young blonde passenger turned to the man in the next seat and
remarked, "If we lose one more engine, we'll be up here all day."
A blonde suspects her boy-friend of cheating on her, so she goes
out and buys a gun. She goes to his apartment, unexpectally and
when she opens the door she finds him in the arms of a redhead,
Well, the blonde is really angry.
She opens her purse to take out the gun, and as she does so, she
is overcome with grief. She takes the gun and puts it to her head.
The boyfriend yells, "No, honey, don't do it.!!!"
The blonde answers, "Shut up. you're next."
A very attractive lady goes up to the bar in a quiet rural pub. She
gestures alluringly to the bartender who comes over immediately.
She seductively signals that he should bring his face closer to hers.
When he does she begins to gently caress his full beard. ""Are you
the manager?" she asks, softly stroking his face with both hands.
"Actually, no," the man replied.
"Can you get him for me? I need to talk to him," she says, running
her hands beyond his beard and into his hair.
"I'm afraid I can't," said the bartender. "Is there anything I can do?"
"Yes, there is. I need you to give him a message," she continues,
running her forefinger across his lips and slyly popping a couple of
fingers into his mouth, allowing him to suck them gently.
"What should I tell him?" the bartender manages to say?"
"Tell him," she whispers, "there is no toilet paper, hand soap or
paper towels in the ladies room."
The girl was supposed to write a short story in as few words as
possible for her literary class and the instructions were that it
had to discuss Religion, Sexuality and Mystery.
She was the only one who received an A+ and this is what she
wrote, "Good God, I'm pregnant, I wonder who did it?"
Just a few quotes . . . . to conclude this post.
