Hello ~~ It’s Me Again Margaret - The title of a great
Ray Stevens’ song. I hope all is well, all OK here. Well
today I went to the hairdresser by taxi and she permed
my hair which was long and terrible; now it is short and
looking much better. And no-one to see and nowhere to go !!
Last night in Australia we had a Census form to fill out
and now wait to have them collected. I guess most of your
countries have them also. They work out where to build
schools, hospitals etc and count us every 5 years.
<><><> What is a Grandma ? <><><>
A grandmother is a lady who has no children of her own, so
she likes other people’s little girls.
(A Grandfather is a man Grandmother. He goes for walks
with the boys, and they talk fishing and things like that.)
Grandmas don’t have anything to do except be there. It is
enough if they drive us to the supermarket where the
pretend horse is, and have lots of coins ready. Or if they
take us for walks, they slow down past pretty leaves and
caterpillars. They never say “Hurry Up.”
Usually they are plump, but not too plump to tie kid’s shoes.
They wear glasses and funny underwear. They don’t have to
be smart, only answer questions like why dogs hate cats, and
how come God isn’t married.
They don’t talk visitors’ talk like visitors do, because it is hard
to understand. When they read to us, they don’t skip words,
or mind if it is the same story again.
Everybody should try to have a grandmother, because they
are the only grown-ups who have time.
<><><><> Joke of the Day <><><><>
A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York
City, where a woman may go to choose a husband.
Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of
how the store operates. You may only visit the store once.
There are 6 floors and the attributes of the men increase as
the shopper ascends the flights.
There is, however, a catch you may choose any man from a
particular floor or you may choose to go up a floor, but you
cannot go back down, except to exit e building.
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.
On the first floor the sign reads : Floor 1 --These men have jobs.
The second floor sign reads : Floor 2 --These men have jobs and
The third floor sign reads : Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love
kids and are extremely good looking.
“Wow,” the woman thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
The sign reads : Floor 4 –These men ave jobs, love kids, are
drop dead good looking and helps with the housework.
“Oh, my God !” she exclaims. “I can hardly stand it.”
Still she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads “ Floor 5 –
These men have jobs, love kids, are drop dead gorgeous, help
wih the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.
She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the 6th floor and
the sign reads – Floor 6 – You are visitor 31,456,012 to
this floor. There are no men on this floor.
This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible
to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.
