Hello Everyone ~~ I hope all is well at your house, wherever that
may be and things are going well for you. All OK here at present.
My son John has safely returned from a Far Ride to Tasmania. He
took his Motorcycle on the Princess of Tasmania Ferry. He had a
cabin to sleep through the crossing, but busy riding all round Tassie.
I am always relieved when he gets home.
I hope all the Aussie fathers had a great day today, Father's Day
and got Breakfast in bed perhaps and some gifts. When both your
parents have gone, these days are bittersweet.
My friend Warren sent me the first joke tonight. Thanks Warren

most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of
this one. It appears to affect those who were born before 1960.

2. Causes you to send a blank e-mail. That too!
3. Causes you to send e-mail to wrong person. Yep!

5. Causes you to forget to attach the attachment. Well darn !
6. Causes you to hit SEND before you're finished. Oh no, not again.
7. Causes you to hit DELETE when you should have hit SEND. I hate that.

A few bits and pieces that my friend Embee sent me. Thanks Mike.

IN PRAISE OF DRINK
There are many good reasons for drinking and one has just come
into my head, if a man can't drink whilst he is living, how the heck
can he drink when he's dead.

One from my friend, Patty called "Grandpa." Thanks Petty.
The IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS
office. The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed
up with his attorney. The auditor said, "Well sir, you have an
extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment. Which you say
that you win money from gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that
"I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it." says Grandpa. "How about
The auditor thinks for a moment and said, "OK, go ahead."
Grandpa says, "I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own
eye." The auditor thinks for a moment and says, "It's a bet."
Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it, The auditor's jaw drops.
Grandpa says, "Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite
my other eye." Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he
takes the bet. Grandpa takes out his dentures and bites his good eye.
The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three
thousand dollars, with Grandpa's attorney as a witness He starts to
"Want to go double or nothing?" Grandpa asks. "I'll bet you six
thousand dollars that I can stand on one side or your desk, and pee
into that waste-basket on the other side, and never get a drop
anywhere in between."
The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and
decides there's no way this old man could possibly manage that
stunt, so he agrees again.
Grandpa stands on one side of the desk and unzips his pants, but
although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the
waste-basket on the other side. so he pretty much urinates all over
the auditor;s desk.
The auditor leaps with joy, realizing he has just turned a major loss
into a huge win.
But Grandpa's own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.
"Are you OK?" the auditor asks.
"Not really," says the attorney. "This morning, when Grandpa told
me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five
thousand dollars that he could come in here and piss all over your
desk and that you'd be happy about it."

A few money jokes - - -
He tried hard to budget - but at the end of the money he always has some
Every time I think I can make ends meet, they move the ends.
If money talks, then why does so much of it seem to say Goodbye.
Money can't buy love, but it can hire a good imitation.
To conclude this post, a nice quote from Mother Teresa.
It is very important that children learn from their fathers and
mothers how to love one another--- not in the school, not
from the teacher, but from you.
It is very important that you share with your children the joy
of that smile.
There will be misunderstandings; every family has its cross,
its suffering. Always be the first to forgive with a smile.
Be cheerful. Be happy.
Well, time to close and get off to bed. Have a great week my
friends and look after yourselves and each other. My love and
best wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.
