Hello again My Friends ~~ Here we are again and we have had a lovely
sunny day 19 C which is just over 66 F. We had a few windy days, but
Melbourne had terrible winds which did a lot of damage, trees falling etc.
Lots of calls to rescue service to remove trees from houses and roads.
I hope your weather has been much nicer for you all.
Another blogging friend has a birthday today in the US. Deborah Wilson
I hope you have a wonderful day Deborah. Happy Birthday.
These photos of Peter and me should be in reverse order, but I think
you can work that out. This one was taken in April, 2009.
This one was about 1984, when we were younger.
And the last one was about 1938. Me with my doll called Fairy.
Peter with his Jesty friend. (Jester, I guess.)
A little poem from my Friendship Book which I hope you enjoy.
Some time when you feel your going
Will leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow this simple example
And see how it humbles your soul;
Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hands in it up to the wrists
Pull them out and the hole that remains
Will show how much you'll be missed. Author Unknown.

This scene took place on a British Airways flight between London
and Johannesburg, Sth Africa. A woman, about 50 years old was
seated next to a black man.
Very disturbed by this she called the air hostess. "Obviously, you
do not see it then?" she asked. "You placed me next to a black man.
I did not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group.
Give me another seat."
"Be calm please," the hostess replied. "Almost all the places on this
flight are taken, I will go and see if another place is available."
The hostess went away and then came back a few minutes later.
"Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in
I spoke to the captain and he informed me, that there are no seats in
Business Class. All the same, we still have one place in First Class."
Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued, "It is
not usual for our company to permit someone from Economy to sit
in First Class. However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that
that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so
The hostess turned to the black guy, and said, "Therefore, Sir, if you
would like to collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First Class."
At that moment, the other passengers, who'd been shocked by what
they had just witnessed , stood up and applauded.
This is a true story. If you are against racism. plese share this with all
WELL DONE< British Airways !!
Thank you Linda for the next one.
A petrol station owner in Dublin was trying to increase his sales,
so he put up a sign that read, "Free sex with Fill-up.
Soon Paddy pulled in, filled his tank and asked for his free sex.
The Owner told him to pick a number from 1 to 10. If he guessed
correctly, he would get his free sex. Paddy guessed 8, and the
proprietor, said "You were close. The number was 7. Sorry No sex
A week later, Paddy, along with his friend,Mick pulled in for another
fill-up. Again he asked for his free sex.
The proprietor again gave him the same story and asked him to guess
the correct number. Paddy guessed 2 this time. The proprietor said,
"Sorry, it was 3. You were close, but no free sex this time.
As they were driving away, Mick said to Paddy, I think that game is
rigged and he doesn't really give away free sex."
Paddy replied, "No it ain't, Mick. It is not rigged at all. My wife won
twice last week."
Well, I have to close as I can't stay awake. Look after yourselves
dear friends and enjoy your lives. Love and Best wishes to you all.
