Rodney Revisited 2

I was reminded of this little episode the other day, when two Aboriginal girls walked past my house and asked “Hello, are you having a good day?” They were about 10 or 12, I think. I told them “Yes, thanks, and I hope you are having a good day too.” They said that they were, smiled and walked on.

Another little story, that I have been sorry that I did not put a small note in the local paper. We always hear the bad things.

Anyway, I drove to a small shopping centre, and on walking on the footpath, I fell over. (I have had a few falls, John says one more, and that will be it!!). Well two tidily dressed young Aboriginal men came to my aid and helped me up, asked if I was OK. Did I need any help to go into the shop etc. Very nice and very kind. These two would be in their early twenties.

I think after this fall, my other son, Geoff suggested I get a walking stick, which I did, and he paid for it. It is my third leg, gives me the stability needed to walk. It is parked near my front door and I always take it to get mail, go shopping or even to turn on a hose in the garden.

I have another at the back door. This one belonged to my favorite uncle. I do appreciate my sticks.

A few jokes etc :

Have you ever noticed?

Anybody going slower than you is an idiot and anyone going faster than you is a maniac. George Carlin.

The only 10 letter word that can be spelled using just the top row letters on a qwerty keyboard is: typewriter.

I have heard this one put differently………

Big Joe, the gangland boss, was shot and dying.

He said to his pregnant wife: “I want my brother George to name the baby, OK?”

She agreed and Big Joe died.

A couple of weeks later, the widow gave birth to a girl.

She rang George to ask him what she should call the child.

George, who was a bit of a dimwit, said “Ah, um, Denise.”

The widow said: “Thank you, that’s a lovely name, George.”

A few days later, at the christening, the widow finds George to thank him again for choosing such a nice name.

“Out of interest, if the baby had been a boy, what would you have called it?”

“Ah, um, Denephew.”

Advice for women…….

What do you do if your boyfriend walks out? You shut the door.

If they put a man on the moon…… they should be able to put them all up there.

Women don’t make fools of men…most of them are do-it- yourself types.

Best way to get a man to do something, is to suggest they are too old for it.

Love is blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener.

If you want a committed man, look in a mental hospital.

The children of Israel wandered around the desert or 40 years. Even in biblical times, men wouldn’t ask for directions.

If he asks what kind of books you’re interested in, tell him cheque books.

Never let your man’s mind wander…it’s too little to be out alone.

Go for younger men. You might as well…..they never mature anyway.

Definition of a bachelor; a man who has missed the opportunity to make some woman miserable.

Remember a sense of humour does not mean that you tell him jokes. It means that you laugh at his.

Sadly, all men are created equal.

I too have a collection of 3rd legs. They are wonderful. I suffer the falling syndrome also. When I am really battleing the vertigo I use a walking staff. For leaning on to keep from being a old puddle. lol. Enjoy your weekend.

I'm not there just yet but I notice the aches more than I used to.

If you check my blog, we had an anonymous commenter to your joke.

It happens occasionally and there's not much I can do about it but I didn't want you upset. Some people just delight in meanness.

I thought I had the "anonymous" comments blocked. I'll have to go back and check.

Your jokes are fantastic!

Be careful out there, Merle!

Merle, I sense from your story that the same kind of irrational prejudice exists against aborigine folks in your land as exists against African-Americans, Latinos, and Asians in mine. That’s a shame.

These jokes were simply hilarious...I just don't know which one I liked best...they were all so good.

I laughed while reading all the jokes. Thanks, I needed a good belly laugh.
