Hi Everyone ~~ Well it is Saturday night here, so half
of my weekend is over. Geoff and Jo arrived last might
and we had a nice meal and evening together. I had
cooked Chicken Kiev and heaps of vegetables that we all
enjoyed, after Pea and Ham Soup. Yummy.
This morning Geoff planted some Peas for me, and spent
a couple of hours weeding as he usually does. It is much
appreciated as I cannot do as much as I’d like to now.
It is always nice to have family visit. They are safely
home now. A little over 2 hours away.
<><><><><> A friend sent these to me today, so I hope you
enjoy them as much as I did. Thanks Jan.
<><><><><> 7 Reasons not to mess with children. <><><><><>
A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The
teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human
because even though it was a very large mammal, it’s throat was very small.
The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.
Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human;
it was physically impossible.
The little said, “When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah”.
The teacher asked, “What if Jonah went to hell?”
The little girl replied, “Then you ask him.”
A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of
children while they were drawing. She would occasionally
walk around to see each child’s work.
As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she
asked what the drawing was.
The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.”
The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing,
the girl replied, “They will in a minute.”
A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with
her five and six year olds.
After explaining te commandment to “honor” thy Father
and Mother, she asked, “Is there a commandment that
teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”
Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a
family) answered, “Thou shall not kill.”
One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother
do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed
that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking
out in contrast on her brunette head.
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, “Why are
some of your hairs white, Mom?”
Her mother replied, “Well, every time that you do something
wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turn white.”
The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and
then said, “Momma, how come ALL of Grandma’s hairs are white?”
A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood.
Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, “Now class, If I
stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and
I would turn red in the face.”
“Yes,” the class said…
“Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary
position the blood doesn’t run into my feet?”
A little fellow shouted,
“Cause your feet ain’t empty.”
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary
school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples.
The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:
“Take only ONE. God is watching.”
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the
table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.

This Poem is called “The Best Poem ever Written.” I am not
sure I agree entirely with that.
It was written by Anonymous Arbuckle. 2001-03-14 and the
comment says : This is a poem about a great love.
<><><><><>Awaiting in the shadows of your beauty,
I smile to think my dreams could dare be more
Seeing in you the essence of perfection,
I wonder what mediocrity is for
The lengths I would go just to have you,
Would boggle the least logical mind
There, in utopia, we would bathe in desire,
Until the second and third ends of time
Bathing in crystal blue waters of solitude,
Walking on beaches of ebony sand
I recite to you the best poem ever written,
Speaking softly, always cautious, hand in hand.
<><><><> Some nice words and phrases there anyway. <><><><>
If you are on the air, Peter, Have a very happy birthday tomorrow
