Hello My Friends ~~ Another day gone by. It has been
trying to rain, but not a lot so far. I hope there will be
more overnight, as the farmers and water storages do
need it so badly. What we had has watered my garden.
I have a nice patch of Broad Beans in flower, so they
will be great fairly soon. Some camelias and azaleas
have started flowering and some other things also.
First tonight is a story “How to Make a Delinquent.”
Begin from infancy to give the child everything he wants
. . .this way he’ll grow up to believe that the world owes
him a living.
When he picks up bad words, laugh at him . . . . it will
encourage him to pick up cuter phrases that will blow the
top of your head off later on.
Never give him any spiritual training . . . . wait till he’s 21
and then let him decide for himself.
Avoid the use of the word “wrong”. . . . it may develop a
guilt complex, and this will condition him to believe later
when arrested for stealing a car that society is against him
and he’s being persecuted.
Pick up everything he leaves lying around – books, shoes,
clothes, etc . . . do everything for him, so he’ll be experienced
in throwing all responsibility on to others,
Let him read any printed matter he can get his hands on. Be
careful that silveware and drinking glasses are sterilised, but
. . . let his mind feed on garbage.
Quarrel frequently in his presence . . . this way he won’t be too
shocked when the home is broken up.
Give him all the spending money he wants . . . . why should he
have things as tough as you did.
Take his part against neighbors, teachers and policemen . . . .
They’re all prejudiced against him.
Satisfy his every craving for food, drink, and comfort. See
every essential desire is gratified . . . denial may lead to
Prepare yourself for a life of heartache . . . .you will have it.

A senior citizen said to his 80 year old chess partner,
“So I hear you are getting married ?”
“Yep,” was the firm reply. “Do I know her?” he asked.
“Nope,” was another firm reply.
“This woman, is she good looking?””Not really,” said the
prospective groom. “Is she a good cook?”
“Can’t cook to save herself,” the old fella said.
“Does she have lots of money?”
“No, poor as a churchmouse,” he said.
“Well the, she must be good in bed?”
“I”I don’t know,” was the surprising answer.

A man was bragging to his mates about his sister, who
disguised herself as a man and joined the army.
“But wait a minute,” said one of his mates. “She’ll have to
dress with the boys and shower with them too, won’t she?”

“Well, won’t they find out ?”
“Yeah, but who’s gonna tell?”

Confidence is realising that although you aren’t best at
something, you still enjoy doing it. Anon.
What the hell –you might be right, you might be wrong-
-- but don’t just avoid. –Katharine Hepburn.
And to finish -- An Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Bye for now, Take care, Have a great day, Merle.
