Hello my dear friends -- It is so nice to be back with you, so nice to be
anywhere. I hope your lives are going just as you'd like and there is
much happiness in your homes. I am doing well and feeling much better.
The leg is not so painful this last few days, so I am glad about that,
and I know there are folks lots worse off than me. Keep cheerful and
do any exercises prescribed as they do help. Keeping you all on my
mind and in my prayers.
First cab off the rank today is "Laws of Life." sent to me by my dear
friend Lady Di. Thank you so much Dianne.

the least accessible corner.

or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never
move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the

Now a funny from my friend Warren in Brisbane. It is called
"Phones on Trains can be so annoying." Good one Mate, Thanks.
Isn't it tempting to do this sort of thing?
After a busy day he settled down in his train from Waterloo for a nap
as far as his destination at Winchester, when the chap sitting near him
hauled out his mobile phone and started up: - - - -
"Hi darling, it's Peter. I'm on the train - yes I know it's the 6.30, not the
4.30, but I had a long meeting - no not with that floozie from the typing
pool, with the boss - no darling you are the only one in my life - yes
I'm sure, cross my heart " etc etc etc.
This was still going on at Wimbledon, when the young woman opposite,
driven beyond endurance, yelled at the top of her voice,
"Hey Peter, turn that bloody phone off and come back to bed."
A couple of laughs from my good friend Gina in the outskirts of Melbourne
First one is "The Jewish Elbow. Thanks Gina.
A Jewish grandmother is giving directions to her grown grandson who
is coming to visit with his wife.
"You come to the front door of the apartment.I am in Apartment 301.
There is a big panel at the front door, With your elbow push button 301
I will buzz you in. Come inside, the elevator is on the right Get in and
with your elbow push 3. When you get out, I'm on the left. With your
elbow, hit my doorbell."
Grandma that sounds easy, but why am I hitting all these buttons
with my elbow.?. . . . . .
"What - - --- - You coming empty handed.?"
Wise Italian Grandfather. Thanks Gina.
Why Italian Fathers and Grandfathers pass their handguns down
through the family.
An old Italian man is dying. He calls his grandson to his bedside,
Guido,I want you to listen to me. I want you to take my chrome-
plated 38 revolver so you will always remember me."
"But Grandpa, I really don't like guns. How about you leave me your
Rolex watch instead?"
"You listen to me, boy. Some day you going to be running the business
you gonna have a beautiful wife, lots of money, a big home and maybe
a couple of bambinos."
Some day you gonna come home and maybe find your wife in bed
with another man. "What you gonna do then? Point to your watch
and say "Times up?"
Two from my dear friend Barbara Thank you my friend. I hope
you and Howard are doing well. Love, Merle.
First one is called "TO BE 8 Again.
A man was sitting on the edge of the bed watching his wife who was
looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off,
he asked her what she would like to have for her birthday.
"I'd like to be eight again" she replied, still looking in the mirror.
On the morning of her birthday,he arose early and made her a nice
big bowl of Coco Puffs, then took her to Adventure World theme
park. What a day. He put her on every ride; the Death slide, the Wall
of Fear,The Screaming Roller Coaster, everything there was.
Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was
reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a
McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and
a chocolate shake.
Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy
M & Ms. What a fabulous adventure.
Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed on the bed
He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked "Well dear,
what was it like being eight again?"
Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.
"I meant my dress size, you dumb retard !!!"
The moral of this story: Even when a man listens, he is still gonna get
Next one from Barbara is called "TRUST" Enjoy.
There comes a time when a woman just has to trust her husband.
A wife comes home late at night and quietly opens the door to
From under the blanket she sees four legs instead of two.
She reaches for a baseball baseball bat and starts hitting the blanket
as hard as she can.
Once she's done, she goes to the kitchen to have a drink. As she
enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine.
"Hi Darling," he says, "Your parents have come to visit us, so I let
them stay in our bedroom."
"Did you say Hello?"
Last one today is from my dear friend Linda in Canberra. It is so
nice to have a friend in Canberra -they are so few there.
It is called True Blue Aussie bloke. Thanks Linda.
On a transatlantic flight, a plane passes through a sever storm.
The turbulence is awful and things go from bad to worse when
one wing is struck by lightning.
One woman in particular loses it. Screaming she stands up in
in the front of the plane.
"I'm too young to die," she wails.
Then she yells, "If I'm going to die,I want my last moments on
earth to be memorable. Is there anyone on this plane who can
make me feel like a WOMAN.
For a moment there is silence. Everyone has forgotten their own peril.
They all stare eyes riveted at the desperate woman in the front of the
Then a handsome Jackeroo from Australia stands up in the rear of the
plane. He is handsome, well built with dark brown hair and blue eyes.
He starts to walk slowly up the aisle, unbuttoning his shirt, one button
at a time. No one moves. He removes the shirt. Muscles ripple across
He whispers.......... "Iron this. Then get me a beer."
Time to say Bye Bye for now my friends. Look after yourselves and each
other. Try to find some joy in every day and to be happy. My love and
very best wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.
