Beaut Surprise !!

Hi Everyone ~~ A short post tonight as my son John

called earlier and he and I are to go to Queensland for

a visit to see his three daughters, my daughter Julie and her

two adult children and my two great grand-daughters, and

last, but by no means least my brother Peter.

This was a complete surprise to me, but I am very happy to

have this holiday. I thought that I might never get to visit

there again and to see all these people that I love. We are to leave just

after Easter ~ “I’m so excited” ala Pointer Sisters one of whom died this week.

My visitors are due in about 2 or 3 hours, and will stay a few

days. Meanwhile I have to think about what to pack. It will

be warmer up there than here.

So just a couple of short jokes tonight:

A man walked into his butcher’s shop and challenged Angelo, the butcher, to a bet.

“I bet you 50 bucks that you can’t reach the steaks on the top

shelf,” he proffered.

“No way,” said Angelo, “I can’t take that bet.

“The stakes are too high.”


Two blondes are walking down the street when they find a make-up compact on the ground.

One opens it up, looks inside and says:”Hey, come look at this,

the person inside looks familiar.”

The other one snatches it off her, looks inside and says:

“Of course, you idiot, that’s me!”


Have a very restful, peaceful and Happy Easter folks. <><><>
