Life 's Adventure.

Hello Everyone ~~ Just a quickie tonight as I had

a long phone call that held me up, although it was

nice to catch up with an old friend fom way back.

And then I cut up chicken and vegetables and

put all in the crockpot with a can of soup, so I am

quite late starting tonight. I hope blogger is being

co-operative and that will help a lot.


<><><><> LIFE’S ADVENTURE. <><><><>

What a happy adventure is life,

If we remember to view it that way,

And avoid, as we go, both dangers and strife,

As we make the very best of each day.


If we pile up a record of deeds

That makes happy our neighbor as well,

If we introduce light where it’s dark,

And fear that torments, we dispel.


If we radiate love from the heart,

And give every moment it’s fill,

Then it’s true, without shadow of doubt,

That life is a glorious thrill.


The next item was sent to me by Sue

who is a blogging friend.


Please join me in remembering a great icon of the

entertainment community.  

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast

infection and trauma complications from repeated 
pokes in the belly.  He was 71 years old.


Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin.


Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their

respects, including Mrs.Butterworth, Hungry Jack,
 and the California raisins, Betty Crocker, the 

Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch.

The grave site was piled high with flours.  Aunt

Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly
 described Doughboy as a man who never know how
 mch he  was kneaded.


Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his
 later life was filled with turnovers.  He was not
 considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of 
his dough on half-baked schemes.  Despite being a
little flakiy at times he was still a crusty old
man and was considered a roll model for millions. 


Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two

children, John Dough and Jane Dough, plus they had 
one in the oven.  He is also survived by his 

elderly dad, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.


If tihis made you smile for even a brief second,

please take the time to  pass it on and share that 
smile with someone else that kneads it!!!

Have a Nice Day.  Quite clever !!
The Indian chief, Two Dogs, was asked how his wife
came to be named Three Horses.
He explained that it was a Traditional old Indian
name, which translates into NAG NAG NAG.
What does one call a male  Ladybird ?
Then there was the dachshund who was wandering in
the park, when he came upon as tree.  He begins to
walk around the tree –round and round – until
finally, he met his end,
So live your life at home, that you need not coach the
children in good manners when they leave for a party.
Life is like a grindstone – whether it grinds a man down
or polishes him up, depends entirely on the material
he’s made from. 
<><><>  Goodnight from me, Take care, Merle. <><><>

I've just caught up on your posts, Merle and loved the joke about the cardiologist. I work in the health industry and will take that in to work next week.

With regard to Grandmas, I had a great compliment from my 16 year old granddaughter. Apparently, she thinks I'm "cool" and according to her mother, is always talking about me to her friends. I was really chuffed when I was told that.

I love Ray Stevens and there was a song he put out about something to do with going to church on Sunday and what the various churchgoers were up to. I can't remember the name of the song but it's really funny, in true Ray Steven's style. Of course, there was also "Ahab the Ayrab", which would probably be regarded as inflammatory in today's world!

Take care, Merle. Hugs to you.

The crockpot cooking sounds great, we do some of that as well. My Spice makes a type of taco sauce in the crockpot that we spoon over corn chips and add tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, sour cream and other yummy things and then chow down!! Almost makes me hungry. ec

R.I.P. Doughboy. Personally, I always thought he was half-baked.
