Hello to you all ~~ I hope everything is going
well at your place. Today I went to my 3 monthly
check up after having blood tests last week, and
I am happy to say that all is well. Thanks Doc !!
Then my son called in after being away for a long
weekend motor-cycle trip to Clare in Sth.Australia
which he enjoyed and showed me lots of photos.
He did just over 2,000 kilometres in 5 days.
<><><> IT’S ALL VERY FUNNY. <><><>
It’s rather strange that shoes have tongues
But never seem to talk;
And though a chair has four strong legs,
I’ve never seen one walk.
And have you heard a dog-fish growl?
Or a dandelion roar?
Or seen a tiger-lily prowl
Or a cat-fish miaow before?
I think a window must be sad,
For it always has a pane,
And are crossroads always grumpy?
And can a sugar-cane?
Although my legs have two fine calves,
I’ve never heard them moo,
Nor heard the bark upon a tree
Go “bow-wow-wow” – have you?
An elephant can swing his trunk,
But have you seen him pack it?
And would a whiting be a whiting
Should you ever chance to black it?
A river always has a bank,
But never any money. . . .
Oh dear, oh dear, it’s all so queer
That things should be so funny.
Where in the company do you belong?
Take the prospective employees you are trying
to place and put them in a room with only a table
and two chairs. Leave them alone for 2 hours,
without any instruction. At the end of that time
go back and see what they are doing.
IF they have taken the table apart, put them in
IF they are counting the butts in the ashtray,
assign them to Finance.
IF they are waving their arms about and talking
loud, send them to Consulting.
IF they are talking to the chairs, Personnel is a
good spot for them.
IF they are wearing green sunglasses and need a
haircut, Computer Information Systems is their
IF the room has a sweaty odor, perhaps they are
destined for the Help Desk.
IF they mention what a good price we got for the
table and chairs, put them into Purchasing.
IF they mention that hardwood furniture does not
come from rainforests, Public Relations for them.
IF they are sleeping, they are Management material.
IF they are writing up the experience, send them to
the Technical Documents team.
IF they don’t even look up when you enter the room,
assign them to Security.
IF they try to tell you it’s not as bad as it looks, send
them to Marketing. <><><>
<<< style=""> A JOKE CALLED THE TEAPOT>>>
George was fixing the front door and he found
that he needed a new hinge, so he sent his wife
Louise to the hardwear store.
At the hardware store Louise saw a beautiful
teapot on a top shelf while she was waiting for
Henry, the manager, to finish waiting on another
customer. When he was finished, Louise asked
“How much for the teapot?”
Henry replied. “That’s real silver and it is $500.”
“My goodness, that sure is a lot of money!” Louise
exclaimed. Then she proceeded to describe the
hinge that George wanted. Henry went to the back
room to find it.
From the back room Henry yelled, “Louise do you
wanna screw for that hinge?”
Louise hollered back, “Well, no. . . but I will for that
<><><> Let’s finish on a nicer note <><><>
If I have brought a gleam of light
To cheer a darkened day,
If I held out a friendly hand
To help along the way.
Then in these acts of kindness done
It is not me you see,
But glimpses of that Loving One
Who chose to dwell in me.
<><> Bye for now, Take care Merle. <><>
