Who Knows?

Hi there Friends ~~ Nice to be back with you and I hope

your weekend is going well for you. I usually answer comments, and then Post. Last night, it took me ages to get the post on, so I will do this first. Many thanks to all who left comments for the post (Recipe for Improvement), I will get there.

My son John called in and put together a DVD storage cabinet

that he had previously bought for me. I have made out a list

of the DVDs and have moved them into it. Looking good !!

There is now NO more room in this house !!!

<><><><><><>

<><><><><> Who Knows? <><><><><>

He who knows not and knows that he knows not is simple; teach him !

He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep:wake him!

He who knows not,and knows not that he knows not, is a fool; avoid him!!

But he who knows, and knows that he knows is a wise man; follow him !!

<><><><><><><> Wow -- Who Knows? <><><><><><><><>

<><><><><><> A Bit of Philosophy. <><><><><><>

Sometime, when you’re feeling important,

Sometime, when your ego’s in bloom,

Sometime, when you take it for granted

You’re the best qualified in the room,

Sometime, when you feel that your going

Would leave an unfillable hole,

Just follow this simple instruction

And see how it humbles your soul.

<><><><>

Take a bucket of water…

Put your hand in it, up to the wrist,

Pull it out—and the hole that’s remaining

Is a measure of how much you’ll be missed.

You may splash all you please when you enter,

You can stir up the water galore;

But stop, and you’ll find in a minute

That it looks quite the same as before.

<><><><>

The moral in this quaint example

Is to do just the best that you can ---

Be proud of yourself, but remember ………

There’s no indispensable man.

<><><> A Joke called Lipstick <><><>

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem.

A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom.

That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

There are teachers.... and then there are educators.

<><><><><> Couple of Quckies. <><><><><>

A salesman asked a little boy if his mother was home.

“Yeah, she’s home,” said the boy. The salesman rang the

doorbell, got no response, knocked once and then again.

Still no-one came to the door. Turning to the boy, he said:

“I thought you said your mother was home?”

The kid replied, “She is, but this isn’t where I live.”

<><><><><>

Little Brother: “If I broke your arm in two places, what

would you do?”

Boy: “I wouldn’t go back to those two places, that’s for sure.”

<><><> Enough for now ~~ See you tomorrow. <><><>

Loved the Lipstick joke! Cute :)

I did get Dad out and to a parade, but the rains hung in there to the point of being so soaked we skipped the uptown festivities. By the time I got him back to his home the rain had stopped, but he was nice and dry (I gave him my rain poncho...and I was soaked...a spring jacket does not hold out the rain...lol) I felt a little bad...had I known the rains were going to let up I could of sat them out a bit....but my day had to go on also....so I got home, to the laundomat, dinner made and a little time outdoors.

Well, back to the studies...taking two night classes is a bit much with working full time, but it is good to keep ones self challenged!!!

Sunday morning here...so TEA TIME!!!!

The DVD storage sounds great. I should probably get one of those too! The lipstick one was so funny!
I was trying to remember where I heard that knock on the door joke. It was when I was very little and it was in a children’s book. I remember the child in the book was named Marvin. I think I made my Dad read that book a hundred times. I don’t know why this brought back a children book memory thing. I also liked Robert the Red Rose horse.
Have a wonderful day!

mreddie said...

You are very organized there with the list of your DVD's, I just have to look through ours to remember what we have. Also, that janitor was indeed an excellent educator. ec

Hello Merle. I found you over at Lucy's place.
I was drawn to your blog because you are a senior like me. There are not many of us out here in blogland, at least I haven't found many.
I enjoyed your blog, and got a good laugh from your funnies!
Come visit me and pin my map too.
