It Couldn't be done.

Hello Folks ~~ I hope that everything is going well at your place. All OK in my neck of the woods..

It has been a cloudy cold day today, but I didn’t have to

go out in it much. Rain is predicted, so I hope it arrives as

the water storages are quite low for this time of year. We

expect to get rain in Winter, but things have changed.


<><><> IT COULDN’T BE DONE <><><>

Somebody said that “it couldn’t be done”

But he, with a chuckle, replied

That “maybe it couldn’t.” but he would be one

Who wouldn’t say so, till he tried.

So he buckled right in with a bit of a grin

On his face---if he worried he hid it---

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn’t be done……and he did it !!


There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done

There are thousands to prophesy failure;

There are thousands to point to you, one by one,

The dangers that wait to assail you;

But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,

Just roll up your sleeves and go to it---

And whistle or sing as you tackle the thing

That “couldn’t be done”---and you’ll do it !!


<><><> And now a couple of Jokes <><><>

The Alabama preacher said to the congregation, “Someone

has spread a rumour that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan.

“This is a horrble lie and one that this Christian community

cannot tolerate. I am embarrassed and do not intend to

accept this. Now I want the party who did this to stand and

ask forgiveness from God and this Christian family.”

No one moved.


The preacher continued: ”Do you have the nerve to face me

and admit this falsehood? Remember, you will be forgiven

and in your heart you will feel glory Now stand and confess

your transgression.” Again all was quiet.


Then slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde rose. Her head was

bowed and her voice quavered as she spoke.

“Reverend, there’s been a terrible misunderstanding,” she said.

“I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard

under the sheets.”

The preacher fainted, and the congregation roared.


<><><><> And another one. <><><><>

One morning the husband returns after several hours fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake

the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short

distance, anchors, and reads her book.


Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside

the woman and says, “Good morning Ma’am. What are you doing?”

“Reading a book,” she replies (thinking it was obvious).

“You’re in a restricted fishing area,” he informs her.

“I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing,I’m reading.


“Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could

start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”

If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says

the woman. “But I haven’t even touched you, says the warden.

“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you

could start at any moment.”


“Have a nice day ma’am,” he said as he left.

Moral: Never argue with a woman who reads. It’s likely she can also think.


<><><><> A couple from my calender <><><><>

Happiness should be your life’s work, not a vacation that you

postpone until you have more time.


There is more power in an ounce of faith than in

a ton of worry.

<><><> Bye for now, enjoy your life everyone, Merle. <><><>

Others say it can't be done but I'm a little hard-headed and want to see for myself. We really don't know for sure until we try. ec
