Friday Recipe & Jokes.

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

at 180 % C, 350% F, Will freeze well.

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.

A – for arthritis

B – for bad back

C – for chest pains – perhaps cardiac ?

D – for dental decay and decline

E – for eyesight—can’t read the top line

F – for fissures and fluid retention

G – for gas (which I’d rather not mention)

H – for high blood pressure (I’d rather have low)

I – for incisions with scars you can show

J – for joints, that fail to flex

L – for libido – what happened to sex?

Wait I forgot about K

K – for my knees that crack when they are bent

M - for memory, Please forgive me, it ain’t worth a cent

N – for neurosis, pinched nerves and stiff neck

O – for osteo – and all bones that crack

P – for prescriptions, I have quite a few

U – for urinary: difficulties with flow

V – for vertigo, that’s “dizzy” you know

W – for worry, now what’s going ‘round?

X – for X ray - and what might be found

Y – for another year I’ve left behind

Z – for zest that I still have my mind.

Have survived all the symptoms my body’s deployed,

And kept twenty-six doctors gainfully employed !!!

I just realised that these lines rhyme, and that’s why

they left out the K for awhile. Clever.

<><> 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

ugly man.”


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.

I enjoyed reading both of your posts today and I really liked both poems. I also had blogger troubles with my last post showing up twice. A few months ago blogger did the 0% (zero) posting over and over and it never went was stuck on zero, so I just finally turned blogger off. When I went back to my blog later it also had posted several times and of course I had to go back and do some deleting. Blogger isn't perfect, but it is free.

Have a nice weekend.

Sandy :)

My Hub and I shared a morning laugh over the St. Peter joke! I also love the zucchini quiche! I serve it in little squares as an appetizer sometimes!
Glad your daughter is progressing.
Enjoy the weekend...

I have had those kind of problems with blogger too! Some days things are just not working well around here! I usually have problems if I try to post several pictures in one post....of getting them where I want them!

...but it IS easy to delete posts! I have had to do that a few times.

LOL- That 'DUCK' joke was funny!!

Hope your daughter is soon back to her normal life! She's had a bad time , with that injury.

Take care,
