Post 735 ~ ~ Tuesday, 17th May, 2011.
Hello my dear friends ~~ I don't promise to do a very long post as I am
tired tonight and my eyesight is awful at night. And also during the day.
I am feeling much better, but it sure has been a busy day. First my
Home Care Lady came, did my washing and hung it out and it was a
great day. Next I had to get a taxi and go to Physio where I met a lovely
girl named Anni and she gave me quite a bit of hope. I had been told to
only walk with the walking frame and therefore thought I might never
get off it. But this lady had me walk across the room and back alone
and said we would soon get to a walking stick, so I am hopeful.
To think I walked in to the hospital alone and unaided like a lamb to the
To continue with this busy day - my hairdresser came to my home and
cut and blow waved my hair, so that was great after the long lanky do
I had before. Then bless her heart, she brought in my washing for me,
then wanted to know if I needed anything from the shops. Lovely lady.
Then my friend Lorraine came and caught up with me and brought me
some of her special savoury scones, with bacon, capsicim and parsley
in them. She rolls the pastry out, puts filling in, then rolls the pastry
and cut into slices. I had my cousins Phyll and Gordon come then to
visit so we had a nice afternoon tea. Phyll brought soup and cake etc.
I hope all that hasn't bored you too much. And I will get round to all
of you who left messages and reply very soon individually.
Now first the title of this post - A Hug Certificate for you, sent by my
friend in Canberra. Thank you Linda. A great poem.
Dedicated to all my kind and caring blogging friends.
If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you
And share with you its beauty
On the days you're feeling blue.
If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own;
A place to find serenity,
A place to be alone.
If I could take your troubles
I would toss them in the sea,
But all these things, I'm finding,
Are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair,
But let me be what I know best,
A friend who's always there.
Now to find a couple of jokes for you.
Happy IVGLGSW Day!
Today is International Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman's Day
so please send this message to someone you think fits the description
Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a
Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman. Remember this motto to
live by. Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn
out and screaming 'WOOO HOOOOO what a ride!!
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened.
The hardest years in life are those between ten and seventy.
Old age ain't no place for sissies.
Thirty-five is when you finally get your head together and your body
starts falling apart.
If you can't be a good example ~ then you'll just have to be a
I'm not going to vacuum until Dyson makes one you can ride on.
Behind every successful man is a surprised woman.
Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.
When life hands you lemons, ask for tequila and salt and call me over.
Next one from my friend of lond standing, Barbara.
It is called "Goodbye Mum" Thanks Barbara.
A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following
him around. If he stopped, she stopped. She kept staring at him.
She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said,
"I hope I haven't made you uncomfortable. It's just that you look so
much like my late son."
He answered, "That's okay."
"I know it's silly, but if you called out "Goodbye Mum" as I leave the
store, it would make me feel so happy."
She went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the
store, the man called out, "Goodbye Mum."
The little old lady waved and smiled back at him.
Peased he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, he went
to pay for his groceries.
"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk.
"How come so much? I only bought 5 items."
The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you would be paying
for her things too."
Bet you thought this was going to be a tear-jerker.
Don't trust little old ladies!!!
Next is from my good friend, Gina in Melbourne. It is called
"Women who know Their Place." Thanks Gina.
Barbara Walters did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan
several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted that women
customarilt walked five paces behind their husbands.
She returned to Kabul recently and observed that women still
walked behind their husbands, Despite the overthrow of the
oppressive Taliban regime, the women seem happy to maintain
the old custom.
Ms Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked,
"Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once
tried so hard to change?"
The woman replied, " Land Mines."
