Hi There, People ~~ I hope that all is well with you all.
I spoke to Kathy this evening and she had just returned from
theatre, so she has had her skin graft and just has to get
well from here. A few more days in hospital should do it for her.
I would like to get in early and wish everyone in the U.S. a very
happy Independencene Day on the 4th July.
I have to ring a cousin of mine tomorrow for his birthday, as he
was born on the 4th July, a real live nephew of OUR Uncle Sam.
Yes we had a wonderful uncle named Sam, who is no longer with us.
I have quite a good article tonight, sent by my friend Warren.
He really is my brother, Peter’s friend and lives in Queensland.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks Warren.

Commandment 1. Marriages are made in heaven. But so are thunder and lightning.
Commandment 2. If you want your wife to listen and pay strict attention to every
word you say, talk in your sleep.
Commandment 3. Marriage is grand - and divorce is around 100 grand!
Commandment 4. Married life is very frustrating. In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.
Commandment 5. When a man opens the door of his car for his wife you can be certain of
two possible reasons - either the car is new or the wife is.
Commandment 6. Marriage is when a man and woman become as one. The trouble starts
when they try to decide which one.
Commandment 7. Before marriage, a man will lie awake all night thinking about something
you say. After marriage, he will fall asleep before you finish.
Commandment 8. Every man wants a wife who is beautiful, understanding, economical, and
a good cook. But the law allows only one wife.
Commandment 9. Marriage and love are purely matter of chemistry. Which is why wives treat
husbands like toxic waste?
Commandment 10. A man is incomplete until he is married. After that, he is finished.
Bonus (11th) Commandment story. A long married couple came upon a wishing well. The wife leaned over, made
a wish and threw in a penny. The husband decided to make a wish too. But he leaned over too far, fell into the well, and drowned. The wife was stunned for a moment but then smiled, "Wow! This stuff really works!"
A teacher asked her class, “What do you want out of life?”
A little girl in the back row raised her hand and said, “all I
want out of life is four little animals, just like my Mom always says”.
The teacher asked, “Really and what four little animals would that be?”
The little girl said, “A mink for my back, a jaguar in the garage
a tiger in the bed and a jackass to pay for all of it.”
The teacher fainted.
<><> I Will Not Worry <><>
I will not worry, I will trust,
God knows I am a child of dust;
I will not worry, I will hope
Perhaps upon some sunny slope
The flowers are waiting for me there,
While here the hills are blank and bare.
I will not worry, I will pray,
I know God cares for me today;
And trusting ever in his love,
I’ll tread the path that leads above.
“Better a morsel of dry bread and peace- than a house full of banqueting and quarrels". Proverbs Ch.17. v1.
Well that’s enough for now. I plan to post a Bible Quiz next.
