Howdy Folks.

Howdy Folks ~~ Well I have spent a lot of time trying to post

photos and either cannot get any to show or else 4 or 5 of the

same sets. Will have another try tomorrow.

We had just under an inch of rain last night which was very

welcome ~ for gardens, farms and water storages. We could

do with another inch. (25 millimetres) Sp?

I have been readng all the blogs that were posted while I was

away. Still have more to read hopefully tomorrow.

A joke or two ~~~~

Talking Dog.

A guy is driving around Tennessee and he sees a sign in front of a house: "Talking Dog For Sale." He rings the bell and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a Labrador retriever sitting there. "You talk?" he asks. "Yep," the Lab replies. "So, what's your story?" The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running." "But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security wandering near suspicious characters and listening in." "I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired." The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. "Ten dollars," the guy says. "Ten dollars? This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?" "Because he's a liar. He never did any of that stuff."

Little Johnny was sitting on a park bench munching one chocolate bar after the other.

After the sixth bar, the man on the opposite bench looked at him and said, “Son, you

know all those chocolate bars aren’t good for you. They’ll give you acne, rot your

teeth and make you fat..

Little Johnny shot straight back: “My great-grandfather lived to be 107 years old.”

“Oh,” said the man, “did your great grandfather eat six chocolate bars at a sitting?”

“No,” replied Little Johnny, “he minded his own b-----y business.”

Hi Merle. Sorry about the photos. Jacqui was having posting problems too.

Must be something going around.

That Labrador joke was funny and since we live in the neighboring state to Tennessee (Kentucky) and my daughter just got a 5 week old Lab, I'm going to print that out for her.

I and lots of other people have had a time with blogger lately...can't wait until someone fixes it right. I'll guess we'll just have to cope.

I know you are glad to be back home, Merle. Enjoy that rain; we are 5-6" below normal here.

Hi Aunty Merle, I'm not sure if we've met but I gather you're Grampa's big sister (I don't think I'd call him little either though)
I liked the second joke. The photo's are pretty tricky, I've only just worked them out and even then it can be something silly like needing to exit part of a program and re-enter it to load a photo, very frustrating.
Ciao for now!!

Hi Merle,

That's rough about the pictures, I think everyone who has blogger has had problems with posting photos. I know I have my problems with it too. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

I like the dog joke.

Hi Merle, I see you got the photos up, maybe not quite how you wanted them but at lest they are there.
Do your line of *********** or some such under your last photo before you post, (not too long though) and it will separate the post from the previous one,
Also if you click on the photos you can drag them down to make room for text between them, keep practiceing.

Hi Merle, these photo's can be pesky things alright. Finally got mine right tonight, not without some effort.

The market went well, the weather was a bit warm to be selling wraps & scarves but we did anyway.

Cheers jacqui

Great photos, Merle :-) Is it just me, or does Rachel take after you?

Have a great day and thank you for the giggles, the jokes were fun.
