Hi All ~~ I was wondering what to post tonight as my life is pretty

boing, compared to most others. I am not complaining, but I am a

little old lady living alone, so there are no fascinating tales to tell.

Anyway, I received an e-mail from a friend titled “Brothers”, so

I hope you enjoy it. Thanks Jan.


Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, are excessively mischievious.

They are always getting into trouble and their parents know all about it.

If any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved.

The boys' mother heard that a preacher in town has been successful in

disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys.

The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually.

So the mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy

to see the preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a deep booming voice, sat the younger boy

down and asked him sternly, "Do you know where God is, son?"

The boys mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide

eyed and his mouth hanging open.

So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is


Again, the boy made no attempt to answer

The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boys

face and bellowed, "Where is God?"

The boy screamed & bolted from the room, ran directly home & dived into his

closet, slamming the door behind him.

When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?"

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble

this time."

(I just LOVE reading this next line again and again)

"GOD is missing, and they think we did it!"

<><><><>More kid’s views on their mothers.. <><><><>

What did Mum need to know about Dad before they got married?

1. His last name.

2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook?

and does he get drunk on beer?

3. Does he make at least $800 a year?


Why did Mum marry your Dad?

1. My Dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my

Mum eats a lot.

2. She got too old to do anyting else with him.

3. My Grandma says Mum didn’t have her thinking cap on.


What’s the difference between Mums and Dads?

1. Mums work at work and work at home, and Dads just go

to work at work.

2. Mums know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.

3. Dads are taller and stronger, but Mums have the real power

‘cause that’s who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at

your friend’s place. Mums have magic, they make you feel

better without medicine.


If you could change one thing about your Mum, what would

it be?

1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean,

I’d get rid of that.

2. I’d make my Mum smarter. Then she would know it was my

sister who did it and not me.

3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on

the back of her head.

<><><><><><> Some Sayings. <><><><><><>

Remember, it is always darkest just before it goes totally



Some people are funny. They spend money they don’t have,

to buy things they don’t need, to imptress people they

don’t like.


Today is the first day of the rest of your life.


Those of you who think you know everything

are annoying to those of us who do.

<><><><><><><> Bye for now. <><><><><><><>

Hi Merle,
I am still laughing about the "God"story, it is very good.

Your right that is a lovely photo of Vicki and she looks very well too.

On one of my many crossing of the country, there were literally hundreds of dead wombats on the sides of the road, I've never seen the like before or since.
hugs jacqui

Jacqui has me totally fascinated with the wombat lately.

Have a great weekend, all of my Australian friends.

Karen said...

Kids are so darn funny, I hadn't read those before. What a hoot.

The joke was great too.

You are so much more than a little old lady, you are one of the sweetest in the world. You're full of wisdom and stories that I, for one, would love to hear.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Merle,

Once again your post made me laugh! I have no idea why you think your boring, as I love reading your jokes!

"I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head." This one is familure! I remember as a kid looking for my mom's eyes on the back of her head!

I couldn't find them, no matter how hard I looked!

Never boring. We need these words of laughter and wisdom.
I can't stop laughing at the 'Where Is God?'
