Hi folks, its Peter again but the news is a little better this week.
After a very worrying week when Merle was unable to eat anything and seemed to be just hanging on she seems to have turned the corner and is so much brighter... getting back to her old self.
The doctors are very pleased with the turn around and have her starting on her exercises again, this time with minimal pain thank the Lord.
Her outlook is so much better, she has started to show an interest in her blog again and asked me to pass on her thanks for all the good wishes and prayers which she is sure have helped her.
I'm happy again so have looked up a joke for you... some of you read holtieshouse as well as here and this joke may even fit better in holtieshouse but I think its funny and I'm sure Merle will agree so here goes...
Sensitive Aussie Blokes.
Three Aussie blokes working up on an outback mobile phone tower:
Mongrel, Coot and Bluey .
As they start their descent, Coot slips, falls off the tower and is
As the ambulance takes the body away,
Bluey says, 'Well, bugger me, someone's gotta go and tell Coot's wife.'
Mongrel says, 'OK, I'm pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I'll do it.'
Two hours later, he comes back carrying a case of Beer.
Bluey says, 'Where'd you get the booze, Mongrel?'
'Coot's wife gave it to me,' Mongrel replies.
'That's unbelievable, you told the missus her husband was dead and she
gave you a case of beer?'
'Well, not exactly', Mongrel says.
'When she answered the door, I said, "you must be Coot's widow."
She said, 'You must be mistaken.. I'm not a widow.'
Then I said, 'I'll betcha a case of beer you are..'
Aussies are good at that sensitive stuff.
