Update 4

This should be my final update on Merle's health, she was released from hospital today for what should be a short stay at a rehabilitation centre, just do your push-ups Grandma was a 16 year old Grandsons advice.
Its been a much longer battle than we anticipated but she should be home and re-united with her computer within the next few days, I'm sure she will make a start on getting in touch with all her dear friends from blogland in the very near future.

Todays joke... I reckon I can get a little bold for my last one.

Free sex

There's a sign outside a Kiwi garage, "Fill up and get free sex. A
man fills up and says, "Well? The attendant says, "Law says there's
got to be a little competition. "Think of a number."
"Eight".says the man.
"Bad luck mate, it's nine." the attendant answers.

The man drives off, stops at the next pub, orders a drink and says to a
bloke standing at the bar, 'That garage down the road - it's a bloody
take. Sign says "Fill up and get free sex" and it's all B S.'

The bloke says, "No mate, you're wrong. Straight up.
No worries. My wife won twice last month."

It has been a pleasure to keep her in touch with you all.

Very good news. We missed you, Merle (((HUGS))) Take care <3

Patty said...

Hooray for Merle, so happy you will soon be home. Glad all is going well. At the moment, we're trying to entertain our son, his girl-friend and his daughter. First we've seen the Granddaughter since 2002 at Christmas, about a month before she left for Iraq. She served over there about six months. She was trained to drive the Patriot Missiles and help set them up. More later.

Patty said...

P.S. The three family members arriving was a complete surprise. They were in NY, and on their way back to Fl stopped off here in Ohio for a few days, they fly out early tomorrow morning.

Janice said...
