Last night I could not put a link to wish Janice a Happy Birthday.
Will try again after advice from Peter.
Her birthday was 16th May. So maybe this will work. Sorry, still not working.
I hope she had a good day.
I went shopping today and the food cupboards and refrigerator are full
again and a few in the freezer. Have to start cooking again tomorrow.
<><><><> Joke Time. <><><><>
A man is driving in the country when his car breaks down, and while he is looking under the bonnet a cow wanders over and stands next to him.
"What's the problem?" asks the cow. "Dunno," says the man, "it just stopped.""Sounds like a fuel problem to me," says the cow and wanders off.
A few minutes later a farmer stops and offers to help.
"you won't believe what just happened," says the motorist. "A cow just told me
I had a fuel problem."
"Was it a white cow with a brown spot over her eye?" asks the farmer.
"Yes it was," said the man.
"Oh that's Bessy," said the farmer. "But I would not take any notice of her.
She doesn't know anything about cars,"
<><><><><> The Power of a Smile. <><><><>
She smiled at the sorrowful stranger. The smiling seemed to make him feel better.
He remembered past kindnesses of a friend and wrote him a thank you letter.
The friend was so pleased with the thank you that he left a large tip after lunch.
The waitress, surprised by the size of the tip. bet the whole thing on a hunch.
The next day she picked up her winnings, and gave part to a man on the street.
The man on the street was grateful; for two days he'd had nothing to eat.
After he finished his dinner, he left for his dingy room.
He didn't know at that moment that he might be facing his doom.
On the way he picked up a shivering puppy and took him home to get warm.
The puppy was very grateful to be in out of the storm.
That night the house caught on fire the puppy barked the alarm.
He barked till he woke the whole household and saved everybody from harm.
One of the boys that he rescued grew up to be President.
All this because of a simple smile that hadn't cost a cent.
