Hello My Friends ~~ Just one last post before I disappear for a week.
I would very much like to have this underlining disappear, but I haven't a clue how to get rid of it. No idea how or why it appeared, anyway. (The magic of having a clever brother)
I hope you are all well and prepared for Christmas, all the shopping
done and then the food will be the next thing to prepare and enjoy.
I had a really lovely day on Saturday, when my son Geoff, d-i-l Joanne and their two kids, Michelle 25 and Scott 21. Also Michelle's boyfriend, Ryan.
We shared a meal, I had cooked chicken wraps, potato wedges and had coleslaw. Jo brought a chicken and some soft drink.
We also swapped presents and everyone seemed quite pleased with their gifts and I was too. We sat out in the gazebo with drinks and nibbles - while Geoff pulled a few weeds and did a few jobs for me as he always does.
Couple of photos to follow.
This is my lovely granddaughter Michelle and her boyfriend, Ryan who are
flying out to England on the 28th to work for a year. Michelle is a teacher,
Ryan a plumber. I hope they enjoy themselves and the change of scenery.
Hope they pack some warm clothes !!!
This is the group photo of my visitors, from the left, Joanne, Geoff, Ryan,
Michelle and Scott. Scott fixed my TV which wasn't going well. Thanks, Scott.
We all enjoyed the day, so that was great.
I have had some wonderful Christmas cards and e mails etc and I really
appreciate them all. And especially I really appreciate all my friends who

Now to find a few jokes. . . . . .
First one was sent by my friend in England, Mike Burridge. Thanks.
It is called PENGUINS.
Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in
Antarctica -- where do they go?
Wonder no more !!!
It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which
lives an extremely ordered and complex life.
The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life,
as well as maintaining a form of compassionate contact with its
offspring throughout its life.
If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members
of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in
the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep
enough for the dead bird to be rolled into and buried,
The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
Then they kick him in the ice hole.
You didn't really believe that I know anything
about penguins, did you?
Mike also sent the next one. . . Thanks Mike.
'Viagra' is now available in powder form for your tea.
It doesn't enhance your sexual performance, but it
does stop your biscuits going soft.
My good friend, Linda sent the next one and it is
called "Man is Boss ??? or is he?
The husband had just finished reading a new book, entitled,
"YOU CAN BE THE MAN OF YOUR HOUSE."
He stormed to his wife and announced, "From now on, you
need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is
Law. You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I
have finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous
dessert. After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and
we will have the kind of sex that I want."
"Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath, so I can relax. You
will wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe. . . .
then you will massage my feet and hands. Then, tomorrow, guess
who is going to dress me and do my hair?"
Without even looking up from her morning paper, the wife replied,
"The Funeral Director" would be my first guess."
Last one tonight from my good friend Gina. Thank you my friend.
It is near the Christmas break of the school year. The students have
turned in all their work and there is really nothing more to do. All the
children are restless and the teacher decides to have an early dismissal.
Teacher: Whoever answers the questions I ask, first and correctly can
leave early today.
Little Johnny says to himself "Good, I wanna get outta here. I'm smart
and will answer the question.
Teacher: Who said 'Four score and seven years Ago?'
Before Johnny could open his mouth, Susie says 'Abraham Lincoln.
Teacher: That's right Susie, you can go home.
Johnny is mad that Susie answered the question first.
Teacher: Who said, 'I have a dream?'
Before Johnny can open his mouth, Mary says 'Martin Luther King.
Teacher: That's right Mary, you can go.
Johnny is even madder than before.
Teacher: Who said 'Ask not, what your country can do for you?
Before Johnny can open his mouth, Nancy says 'John F. Kennedy.
Teacher: That's right, Nancy, you may also leave.
Johnny is boiling mad that he has not been able toanswer any questions.
When the teacher turns her back Johnny says, I wish these
bitches would keep their mouths shut.
The Teacher turns around: NOW WHO SAID THAT?
Johnny: TIGER WOODS, CAN I GO NOW?
Bye for now ~~ Back in a week. Merry Christmas and Festive Season
to you all and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year in 2010.
Love and Best Wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.
