Hi Everyone ~~ Do you ever have Blogger turning around
and showing O%. They lie !! Yesterday I had so many zeros
that I almost gave up, but today when I opened up, the post was on 3 times. This has happened before, anyway it is OK
now. Thank you for the comments which were fortunately
all on one post.
Thank you for your good wishes again for Kathy who will get
home later today ~~ I think !! She has had almost 7 weeks
of fun and games after a fall from a horse. The only injury
was to one finger, so I guess that was good.
<><><> FRIDAY RECIPE <><><>
Zucchini Quiche. Simple and nice hot with vegies or
cold with salad.
2 Grated zucchinis, washed but unpeeled
1 Onion diced, 1 cup Grated Cheese
4 rashers of bacon cut very small ( I buy bacon bits at deli)
1 cup of self raising flour, 4 eggs Salt and Pepper.
Mix all together well, then add ½ cup vegetable Oil
Pour into a greased tray tin (11 x 8) and bake 40 minutes

When I make this I double it and also add a small can of peas
and corn and some grated carrot and some red Bell Pepper
which adds color and extra nutrition. Great with salads.

<><> And if that wasn’t funny enough, here’s a joke.<><>
Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven.
When they get there St. Peter says, “We only have one rule
here in heaven : don’t step on the ducks !”
So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all
over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck,
and although they try their best to avoid them, the first
woman accidently steps on one.
Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.
St. Peter chains them together and says, “Your punishment
for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this
The next day the second woman steps accidently on a duck
and along comes St. Peter who doesn’t miss a thing.
With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them
together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.
The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be
chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful
where she steps. She manages to go for several months
without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes
up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes
on---- very tall, long eyelashes, muscular and thin.
St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.
The happy woman says, “ I wonder what I did to deserve being
chained to you for all eternity?”
The guy says, “ I don’t know about you, but I stepped on a duck!”
<><><><> Couple of Sayings from the paper. <><><><>
Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?
Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for
taking things for granted. – Aldous Huxley, English author.
Of the many remedies that fail to cure a cold, whiskey is
by far the most popular.
That is enough for this time- Have a great weekend, Merle.
