Post 793 ~~ Sunday, 29th July, 2012
Hello Everyone ~~ Another week is over and almost another month. How the time flys as we get older. I have had a long sad week until my brother in law was finally laid to rest on Thursday. Somehow things seem brighter once the funeral is over, not that we forget the ones we love by any means, but it does conclude the situation.
I hope you are all doing well out there - keeping as well as is possible and not having too much heat or cold - depending where you live. It has been reasonable here with rain every now and then which does my garden good and the farmers want it also. I am feeling quite well and managing as well as I can. Slow but sure!!!
Well, time to find something for you. First is from Mountain wings called "The Top Five".

The Top 5
>From the marriage counseling experience of my wife and I, these
are things we've seen in common among couples. Keep in mind,
these are not all the things by far, only the top 5 most common
we've seen. Every divorce "WE KNOW OF" had a failure in at least
one of these areas. Also keep in mind that lack of "TRUE"
spiritual connection with God is the underlying root cause of
many of the manifested symptoms.
Top 5 things that husbands want from their wives:
1. Peace (no nagging, with respect and support given)
2. Good, frequent sex. (Average 3+ times a week, will vary
depending on age, health and drive)
3. Good food.
4. Good financial stewardship.
5. Attractive physical appearance.
Top 5 things that wives want from their husbands:

3. Respectful communication (with anger well managed and
4. Fairness in efforts (household duties, kids, bills).
5. Sexual satisfaction.

Next also from Mountain Wings called "Unique Breakfast."
A man observed a sign in the window of a restaurant that read
"Unique Breakfast" so he walked in and sat down.
The waitress brought him his coffee and asked him what he
"What's your Unique Breakfast?" he asked inquisitively.
"Baked tongue of chicken!" she proudly replied.
"Baked tongue of chicken?... baked tongue of chicken!
Do you have any idea how disgusting that is?
I would never even consider eating anything that came out of a
chicken's mouth!" he fumed.
Undaunted, the waitress asked, "What would you like then?"
"Just bring me some scrambled eggs," the man replied.
One from my dear friend Lady Di called "Why We Love Children." Thanks Dianne.
Why We Love Children.
Next one is from my dear friend Jeanette called
"Tribute to Mudders". Thanks Jan.
When me prayers were poorly said Who tucked me in me widdle bed
And spanked me till me ass was red,
And spanked me till me ass was red,
Who took me from me cozy cot
And put me on the ice cold pot
And made me pee when I could not,
And when the morning light would come
And in me crib me dribbled some
Who wiped me tiny widdle bum,
Who would me hair so neatly part
And hug me gently to her heart
Who sometimes squeezed me till me fart,
Who looked at me with eyebrows knit
And nearly have a king size fit
When in me Sunday pants me shit,
When at night her bed did squeak
Me raised me head to have a peek
Who yelled at me to go to sleep,
This one was sent to me by my dear friend Lady Di and it is about why some people were lucky on September 11th. Thank you Dianne.The ' L I T T L E ' Things
As you might remember, the head of a company survived
9/11 because his son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn't go off on time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn't start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
took the various means to get to work
but before he got there, he developed
a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today.
Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator,
turn back to answer a ringing telephone .
All the little things that annoy me.
I think to myself, this is exactly where
God wants me to be at this very moment..
Next time your morning seems to be going wrong ,
You can't seem to find the car keys,
you hit every traffic light,
don't get mad or frustrated;
It may be just that
God is at work watching over you.
May God continue to bless you
with all those annoying little things
and may you remember their possible purpose.
Well my friends, that is it for tonight, so goodbye for
now until next weekend- all being well. Look after
yourselves and each other and try to brighten some-
one's day with one of your smiles, or a kind word.
My love and best wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.
