Hello Folks ~~ I hope all is well with you and your family.
I had a call from my daughter today saying that she and
her husband and 3 youngest children are coming to visit
just for the weekend. I haven’t seen them since Christmas
so am looking forward to seeing them. The oldest two kids
will do the milking on their dairy farm, which is on the coast
of Victoria, close to the Twelve Apostles and the Great
Ocean Road. A tourist attraction of some note.
Thanks to the folks who commented on The Mayonnaise Jar.
I edited it today and it is easier to read and enjoy. Blogger
does like to mix things up at times.
Now to find something to post……..

A man bought his wife a flash new car and as he handed her the manuel says: “Here’s everything you need to know about your new car.” He laid it down and shouted, “Come on, we’re going into town to celebrate your birthday.”
Just as she headed out the door, the phone rang. It was their
neighbor wondering if anything was wrong, as the car horn was
She hurried outside and said, “For Heaven’s sake, turn off the horn.”
He said :”I can’t. I’m not touching it and it still honks.”
“At least roll down the window, so I don’t have to shout.”
“ Can’t. They won’t work.”
“Well start the motor. Maybe that will stop the horn.”
“Can’t. Already tried it. It won’t start.”
“Look in the manual and see what it says,” she said, between giggles.
“Can’t. The manual is in the house on the ktchen counter. Go in
and get it and read it to me.” His voice was getting hoarse from trying to shout
above the horn.
She hurried into the house, grabbed the manual and ran outside, and began to
thumb through the pages, then trying hard not to laugh while reading to him.
“Okay. have you got the remote?”
He held it up for her to see.
“Okay. Just push the unlock button.”
For once he did not query the wisdom of this. He pushed “unlock” and the horn
quit honking, the door unlocked and when he turned the key, the motor
immediately leapt into action and purred like a kitten.. Then he opened the door
and walked around to the other side, saying, “You drive.”
<><><><><><><> Joke of the Day <><><><><><><>
Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded
up Jack’s mini-van and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got
caught in a terrible blizzard.
So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive
woman who answered the door if they could spend the night.
“I realise it’s terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself,
but I’m recently widowed,” she explained.
“I’m afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.
“Don’t worry” said Jack, “we’ll be happy to sleep in the barn.
And if the weather breaks, “we’ll be gone at first light.”
The woman agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn, and settled
in for the night. Come morning, the weather had cleared and they got on their
way to enjoy a great weekend of skiing.
About nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from the attractive
widow’s lawyer. He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked :”Bob, do you
remember that good looking widow from the farm we stayed at
on our ski trip up north about nine months ago?”
“Yes I do,” said Bob.
“Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go to the house
and pay her a visit?”
“Well, um, yes,” Bob said, a little embarrassed,. I have to admit that I did.”
“And did you happen to use my name instead of telling her yours?”
Bob’s face turned beet red and he said: “ Yeah, Look I’m sorry.
buddy. I’m afraid I did. Why do you ask?”
“She just died, and left me everything.”
<><><><><><><> Couple of puzzles. <><><><><><><>
Q. What is it that everyone has, but is always used more by their friends
than by them?
Q. I’m pointed in one direction, and headed in another. When
you drive me home, my purpose you’ll discover. What am I?
