Howdy Folks ~~ I have a little time before my visitors arrive
home for tea. It has been lovely seeing them all, They used to live half an hour away, but now I usually only see them over
Christmas and maybe once through the year. My daughter, Kathy had a fall from a horse and badly split a finger, which
had to be stitched. It looks dreadful, very black and swollen, she is taking antibiotics. It should look better after 2 weeks.
It is her left hand, BUT she is left-handed. Fortunately the
kids do their best to help her.
<><><><><<> The Teenager’s Answer. <><><><><>
This was written by a 16 year old girl in reply to attacks on
We read in the papers,
We hear on the air,
Of killing and stealing,
And crime everywhere.
We sigh and we say,
As we notice the trend:
“This young generation ---
Where will it end?”
But can we be sure that
It’s their fault alone---
That may be part of it---
Isn’t our own?
Too much money to spend,
Too much idle time;
Too many movies of
Passion and crime,
Too many books
Not fit to be read;
Too much of evil
In what they hear said.
Too many children
Encouraged to roam
By too many parents
Who won’t stay at home.
Kids don’t write the books
That paint a good picture
Of gangsters and crooks;
They don’t make the liquor,
They don’t make the drugs
That addle the brain;
It’s all done by older folk
Greedy for gain.
And in many cases --
Do we find that it’s true,
The cry of “delinquent”
Fits older fold too!
<><><><><> Let’s get the Blondes Again <><><><><>
A police officer stops a blonde for speeding and asks
nicely to see her licence. She replies in a huff, “I
wish you guys would get your act together. Just
yesterday you take away my licence and then today
you expect me to show it to you.”
A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on
the freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to
see that the blonde behind the wheel was knitting !
Realizing that she was oblivious to his siren and flashing
lights, he wound down his window and yelled, “PULL OVER”
“NO”, the blonde yelled back, IT’S A SCARF.”
A Russian, an American, and a blonde were talking one day.
The Russian said, “We were first in space.”
The American said,” We were first on the moon.”
The Blonde said, “So what? We are going to be the first on
the sun !” The Russian and the American looked at each
other and shook their heads. “You can’t land on the sun, you
idiot ! You’ll burn up,” said the Russian.
To which the Blonde replied, “We’re not stupid, you know.
We’re going at night.
