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. <><><>
