Hi to all, although this post will be signed by Merle its actually her little brother Peter here, Merle rang me in a bit of a tizz as she had been without a phone for 3 days and is STILL without her internet connection, her world is imploding on her!!!!
Until something like this happens we just don't realize how much we rely on the computer and the internet, I'm the same when for whatever reason I can't use the net, or worse still the computer.
She has asked me to explain her absence and why you haven't had comments from her, her health isn't too bad... apart from the dementia that is!!! these older people can be a bit of a worry sometimes.
In the very best tradition of my sister here is a parting joke.
A Popular President.
A man, on his way home from work, came to a dead halt in traffic and thought to himself, "Wow, this traffic seems worse than usual. Nothing is even moving."
He notices a police officer walking back and forth between the lines of cars, so he rolls down his window and asks, "Officer what's the hold up?"
The officer replies, "President Bush is just so depressed about the thought of not contesting the next election that he stopped his motorcade in the middle of the freeway and he's threatening to douse himself in petrol and set himself on fire. He says his family hates him and he doesn't have the money to pay for the new house renovations. We're taking up a collection for him."
"Oh really? How much have you got so far?"
"About one hundred gallons, but a lot of people are still siphoning."
