Friday again.

Friday again ~~ How quickly the weeks go by, when we don’t keep an eye on them. I had a big cooking day, and now will not need to do more for awhile. It is quite warm here again, but not unbearable.

Did a bit of gardening yesterday, only cutting things back as I cannot do much, unfortunately.

I feel so sorry for all the people who lost homes etc in the cyclone Larry.

It was nice of George W. Bush to offer assistance, which John Howard refused, as unnecessary at this time.

They are still without power, water etc four days later.

It is on the way, but they need it NOW.

A couple of funnies…

A man and a woman are involved in a car accident: it’s a bad one.

Both of their cars are totally demolished, but amazingly neither of them is hurt.

After they crawl out of their cars, the woman says, “So you’re

a man. That’s interesting, I’m a woman. Wow, just look at our cars! There’s nothing left, but we are unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live in

peace for the rest of our days.”

Flattered, the man replies, “Oh yes, I agree with you completely, this must be a sign from God.”

The woman continues, “And look at this, here’s another miracle.

My car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn’t

break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine, celebrate our

good fortune and see where the evening leads.”

Then she hands the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman. The woman takes the bottle and

immediately puts the cap back on, and hands it back to the man.

The man asks, “Aren’t you having any?”

The woman replies, “No. I think I’ll just wait for the police.”


Women are clever. Don’t mess with them…


Everything I need to know about life I learned from Noah’s


1 Don’t miss the boat.

2 Remember we are all in the same boat.

3 Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.

4 Stay fit. When you are 600 years old, someone may ask

you to do something really big.

5 Don’t listen to critics, just get on with the job that needs

to be done.

6 Build your future on high ground.

7 For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.

8 Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board

with the cheetahs.

9 When you are stressed, float a while.

10 Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by


11 No matter the storm when you are with God, there’s

always a rainbow waiting.

Merle - so cute to see the exchange between you and your granddaughter above. I love seeing relationships like that. This story is fabulous and I didn't see the end coming. I should have.. I can be conniving like that woman!

Take gentle care you sweet soul,

How true those sayings about the ark. I am glad to hear you and Peter are not in the damage zone of that.

Can't say I blame Mr. Howard for refusing Mr. Bush's assistance, what with how well we've 'assisted' Iraq in becoming a democracy, and many of our own Katrina survivors are still without homes.

Found you via Saintly Nick...I like your blog. :)

Yep, another Friday Merle. The weeks are like a blur, and I'm not sure what I've done with them that was so productive. Well, whether we want it to or not...TIME FLIES!

I love the Noah's Ark post...and actually, it's all true. Great.

I hope that the people of Hurricane Larry have received fresh water and supplies by now and have their electricity restored.

I also really loved these two jokes, and I'm going to show them to my daughter...she'll also get a kick out of them...The woman driver was very clever and the Noah's Ark list is very true.
