Howdy Folks ~~ I’m back again !! It has been a nice day
here today about 17 degrees AND tomorrow we expect
19. How good is that ? And instead of being out in it I
will be watching Carlton try to win against Hawthorn.
Hopefully, we will get other nice days to enjoy.
<><><><>A small Poem called LIFE. <><><><>
At five I believed in the fairies’ spell,
At ten I believed in heaven and –- well,
At fifteen ‘twas sport and call of adventure’
At twenty, romance was my favourite venture.
Twenty-five brought marriage, with the mate of my choice.
At thirty, with children, I near lost my voice,
Thirty-five brought dawning of wisdom and wrinkle,
What’s to come later, I haven’t an inkle.
But believe in yourself and not all you hear
And from what Granny tells me,
You’ll have nothing to fear.
Some unusual very Punny Stories.
1. Two vultures board an airplane, each carrying two
dead raccoons. The flight attendant looks at them
and says, “I’m sorry gentlemen, only one carrion
allowed per passenger.”
2. Two boll weevils grew up in South Carolina. One went
to Hollywood and became a famous actor. The other
stayed behind in the cotton fields and never amounted
to much. The second one, naturally , became known as
the lesser of two weevils.
3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, but when
they lit a fire in the craft, it sank, proving once again
that you can’t have your kayak and heat it too.
4. A three legged dog walks into a saloon in the Old West.
He sidles up to the bar and announces: “I;m looking
for the man who shot my paw.”
5. Did you hear about the Buddhist monk who refused
Novocain during root canal. He wanted to transcend
6. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and
were standing in the lobby discussing their recent
tournament victories. After an hour, the manager came
out of the office and asked them to disperse. “But why?”
they asked as they moved off. “Because,” he said, “I
can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
7. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One
of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named Amal.
The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him Juan.
Years later Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth
mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband
that she wishes she had a picture of Amal. He responds,
“They’re twins ! If you’ve seen Juan, you’ve seen Amal.”
8. There was a woman who sent ten different puns to friends,
in the hope that at least one of the puns would make them
laugh. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.
