Hello my friends~~ Sunday night here, and all is well. I have a couple of
jokes to post, and it seems that they dictate the size and font to be used.
So it looks like small text – sorry. Thanks to all who commented. I was
quite surprised that quite a few folks had never tasted lamb, and even a
couple who did and did not like it. We love it in Australia with mint sauce.
A few years ago, when Tom Cruise was our favorite son-in-law, there was
an advertisment about a girl winning a date with Tom and she said “No,
I can’t go, Mum is making a lamb roast.”.. These days, she probably still
wouldn’t go even if Mum was serving sausages.!!.
<><> A Little Story called “SUCH IS LIFE” <><>
A man lived by the side of the road and sold Hot Dogs. He was hard of
hearing, so he had no radio. But he sold good Hot Dogs. He used to stand by
the of the road, and call, “Buy a Hot Dog Mister!!” And people bought.
They bought so well, he increased his meat and roll orders. He bought a bigger
stove to take care of his business, and then brought his son home from college
to help him. But, then something happened. His son said, “Father, haven’t you
been listening to the radio? There’s a dreadful depression on. The European
situation is bad, the situation in Asia is terrible, and the domestic situation
Whereupon the father thought, “Well, my son has been to college---he listens
to the radio, and he ought to know.” So he cut down his meat and roll orders
and he stopped going out to the side of the road and calling out “Buy a Hot Dag
Mister.” And his Hot Dog sales fell off within a fortnight.
“You’re quite right, son,” the father said to his boy, “we certainly are in the
middle of a terrible depression.”
<><><> A Couple of Jokes. <><><>
The new Supermarket near our house has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of a thunderstorm and the smell of fresh rain. When you approach the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and witness the scent of fresh butter fat. When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cackle and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of eggs frying. So far I have been too afraid to go down the toilet paper aisle ------------ ------------- ------------- ---------- ------------- ----------------- ---------- Prime Minister John Howard, Federal Treasurer Peter Costello, and Industrial Relations
Minister Kevin Andrews are flying on the Executive Airbus to a gathering in Canberra when
:Howard turns to Costello and says,chuckling, "You know, I could throw a $100 note out the
window right now and make someone very happy" , Costello shrugs and replies, "Well, I could
throw ten $10 notes out the window and make ten people happy" , Not to be outdone, Andrews
says, "Well I could throw a hundred $1 coins out the window and make a hundred people happy" ,
The pilot rolls his eyes and says to his co-pilot, "Such arrogant asses back there. Hell, I could
throw all three of them out the window and make millions of people happy"
This last one is about our Political Leaders, but I think it will be understood!!
