Hello Everyone ~~ I hope you all had a great weekend and life is good.
My friend, Lorraine came on Saturday and took me to Bunnings where
I got some tomato plants and a few other bits and pieces. And then
she insisted on putting them in for me. I am very lucky to have such a
good friend. I enjoy just walking around looking at my garden and the
flowers that are already in bloom. Life is good here in Shepparton.
First item tonight is one sent by Sue and Bob in England. A good story.Thanks.
An Incredible Fish Story.
Caught One to One and a half miles offshore while fishing after the
fires in Southern California.
Did he say , one and a half miles ??? What is that in the middle of the photo?
Can it really be??
It's a DEER.
Not too much of a struggle. Poor thing.
He was so tired and was so glad to get into our boat and rest.
And yes, we turned him loose when we got back to shore.
Just try beating this Fish Story. !!

APARTMENT for RENT.
A businessman met a beautiful girl and agreed to spend the night with
her for $500. They did their thing, and before he left, he told her that
he didn't have any cash on him, but would have his secretary write a
cheque and mail it to her calling the payment. "RENT FOR APARTMENT."
On his way to the office he regretted what he had done, realising that
the whole thing was not worth the price. So he had his secretary send
a cheque for $250 and enclose the following note.
Dear Madam: Enclosed find a check for $250 for rent of your apartment.
I am not sending the amount agreed upon, because when I rented the
place, I was under the impression that:
1 -it had never been occupied
2 there was plenty of heat
3 it was small enough to make me feel cosy and at home
However I found 1. that it had been previously occupied
2 There wasn't any heat and
3 it was entirely too large.
Upon receipt of the note, the girl immediately returned the cheque
for $250. with the following note.
Dear Sir: 1. I cannot understand how you could expect a beautiful
apartment to remain unoccupied indefinitely.
2 As for the heat, there is plenty of it if you know how to turn it on.
3 Regarding the space, the apartment is of regular size, but if you
don't have enough furniture to fill it, please do not blame the
So please send the rent in full or we will be forced to contact your
present landlady. . . .
Let us find your next place for you. Need a place to rent, buy or share?
Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man was
drafted by the Army. On his first day of basic training, the Army issued him
a comb. That afternoon the Army barber shaved off all his hair.
O his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon
the Army dentist removed seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army
issued him a jock strap. The Army has been looking for Herman James
for 51 years.
Well, I will close now and go visit 15 blogger friends. Take care of yourselves
and each other. Enjoy your lives my friends. My love and best wishes to you
all. Cheers, Merle.
