Hello My Friends ~~ Back with you again. I hope
everything is going well with you and your families.
I am fine, in fact I tried out a new recipe for my
post tomorrow and it turned out nice. a Different
sort of salad which I hope will please.
An old friend sent me the following article by
e-mail the other day. It had music with it, but I
haven’t a clue how to post that. The words are the
important part anyway. It is called “The Woman.”
When God created woman he was working late on
the 6th day.
An angel came by and asked, “Why spend so much
time on that one ?”
The Lord answered, “Have you seen the specifications
I have to meet to shape her?”
She must be washable, but not made of plastic, have
more than 200 moving parts, which all must be
replacable and she must function on all kinds of food.
She must be able to embrace several kids at the same
time, give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised
knee to a broken heart, and she must do all this with
only two hands.
The angel was impressed, “Just two hands—impossible.
And this is the standard model ? Too much work for
one day……wait until tomorrow and complete her then.”
“I will not, ”Said the Lord, “I am so close to completing
this creation, which will be the favourite of my heart.”
She cures herself when she is sick and she can work for
18 hours a day.
The angel came nearer and touched the woman, “But you
have made her so soft, Lord.”
“She is soft,” said the Lord, “but I have also made her
strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.?
“Can she think ?” the angel asked.
The Lord answered, “Not only can she think, she can reason
The angel touched the woman’s cheek --- “Lord, it seems this
creation is leaking. You have put too many burdens on her.”
“She is not leaking --- it’s a tear,” the Lord corrected the angel
“What’s it for ?” ased the angel.
And the Lord said: “Tears are her way of expressing grief,
her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”
This made a big impression on the angel, “Lord, you are a genius
You thought of everything. The woman is indeed marvellous.”
Indeed, she is.
A woman’s strength amazes me. She can handle trouble, and
carry heavy burdens. She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when feeling like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying and cries when she is
happy and laughs when she is afraid.
She fights for what she believes in, stands up against
She doesn’t take “no” for an answer, when she can see a
She gives herself so her family can thrive.
She takes her friend to the doctor if she is afraid.
Her love is unconditional.
She cries when her kids are victorious.
She is hapy when her friends do well.
She is glad when she hears of a birth or a weddig.
Her heart is broken when a next of kin or a friend
dies. But she finds the strength to get on with her life.
She knows that a kiss and a hug can heal a broken heart.
There is only one thing wrong with her.
She forgets what she is worth --------
Pass this on to your lady friends to remind them how
fantastic they are.
Pass it on to the males that you know—sometimes they
need to be reminded.

Five surgeons were discussing who makes the best
patients to operate on.
The first surgeon says, “ I like to see accountants
on my operating table because when you open them
up, everything is numbered.
The second responds, “Yeah, but you should try
electricians! Everything inside them is color coded.”
The third surgeon says, “No, I really think librarians
are the best, everything inside them is in alphabetical
The fourth surgeon chimes in: “You know, I like
constructin workers, those guys always understand
when you have a few parts left over at the end, and
when the job takes longer than you said it would.
But the fifth surgeon shut them all up when he said,
“You’re all wrong, politicians are the easiest to operate
“There’s no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains and no
spine, and the head and butt are interchangeable.”

<><><><><><> A Joke called The Bill. <><><><><><>
A woman brought a very limp parrot into a veterinary
hospital. As she lay her pet on the table, the Vet
pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s
chest. After a moment or two, the Vet shook his head
sadly and said, “I’m so sorry, Polly has passed away.”
The distressed owner wailed, “Are you sure ? I mean,
you haven’t done any tests or anything. He might just
be in a coma or something.”
The vet rolled his eyes,shrugged, turned and left the
room, returning a few minutes later with a beautiful
black labrador. As the bird’s owner looked on in
amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his paws on
the table and sniffed the dead parrot. He looked at the
vet sadly and shook his head.
The Vet led the dog out but returned a few moments
later wit a cat. The cat jumped up on to the table and
sniffed delicately the ex bird. The cat sat back, shook
his head, meowed and ran out of the room.
The Vet looked at the woman and said, “Like I told you,
your parrot is most definitely 100% dead.
He turned to his computer, hit a few keys and produced
a bill and handed it to the woman.
The parrot’s owner, still in shock, took the bill,”$150 just
to tell me my bird is dead.”
The Vet shrugged, “Well, I’m sorry, but if you had taken my
word for it, the bill would have only been $20, but with the
Lab report and the Cat scan…….What did you expect it to be?”

You needn’t be the biggest or the strongest to accomplish
all of life’s tasks, just the most determined.
The ever-flowing river reminds us that life is eternal.
Just one simple act of kindness might make someone’s day---
or even a new friend.
