Hello Everyone~~ Well we have had a nice couple of rainy days here
which has been terrific as it was needed. I have got my e-mail system
working again, after being on the phone for well over half an hour, and
venturing to places I have never been before, but all is well now.
I have not been able to reach a commentor named Aunt Jenny. I got to
her blog but could not find where to reply. So on the off-chance that you
are reading Jenny – thanks for your comments and many, many congrats
on your family – 2 homemade and 5 adopted. What an amazing lady
you must be, and I see you sell lots of homemade things as well. Don’t
they keep you busy enough?
Another blogging friend Pea sent me the next item called Funeral.
Thank you Carole. It is a good joke despite it’s title.
A woman was leaving a convenience store with her morning coffee when she noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.
A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one.
Behind the second hearse was a solitary woman walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind her, a short distance back, were about 200 women walking single file.
The woman couldn't stand her curiosity. She respectfully approached
the woman walking the dog and said, "I am so sorry for your loss, and I know now is a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?"
"What happened to him?"
The woman replied, "My dog attacked and killed Him."
She inquired further, "Well, who is in the second hearse?"
The woman answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my
husband when the dog turned on her."
A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two
"Can I borrow the dog?"
"Get in line."

Mothers must draw a subtle line
Finer than any thread is fine;
Must Firmly hold, but never clutch,
Must freely give, but not too much,
Must stand apart, but never far,
Must heal the wound, but bless the scar;
And, falsely speaking, truly tell,
And guarding, never guard too well;
And hearing, fail to overhear;
And, fearing all things, have no fear;
And loving, love each child the best,
Yet no child dearer than the rest.

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.

Do not follow where the path may lead……
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Living well and beautifully and justly are all one thing.
Happiness is contagious. If allowed to spread it can
infect tha whole universe with joy.
Happiness is getting what you want.
Joy is knowing you are never alone.
Enough for now. Have a great week and take care, Merle.
