Hi There Folks ~~ Nice to be back with you again. I hope things
are going well at your places. All OK here, at present. I have
the fortnightly shopping day tomorrow to stock up on all the
things I will need for 2 weeks.
Tonight I am posting about a lovely glass framed verse, that
was a gift from my second son, Geoff and his family. It is
called “A Lifetime Wish for You.” I hope you like it as
much as I do.
May your blessings be many, your sorrows be few,
And may you find contentment in all that you do
And should you at times face misfortune or ills,
May you always remember to “Look to the Hills”
May your faith in yourself, and your faith in the Lord
Hold fast like an anchor to keep you secured.
May you always be ready to reach for a star,
To know where you’re going, and know who you are.
May you have courage to follow your dream,
And recognise when things are not what they seem.
May kindness and thoughtfulness set you apart,
May you be blessed with a compassionate heart.
May your thoughts and your actions show love for mankind,
For by thought and by deed is your Karma designed.
May wisdom be yours and, whatever life brings,
May you always see beauty in everyday things.
May you never lose sight of your own highest goal,
May you learn to let go and let God take control.
May you always remember the Master is near,
That He knows who you are, and He knows why you’re here.
May you trust Him more fully with each passing day,
Allowing His Guidance to show you the way.
May the Light of all Lights fill your heart, soul and mind,
May your life with His Love be forever entwined.
May this year and future years be filled with
Love, Light, Learning and Laughter.

<><><> Nice one Geoff. <><><>
<><><> And now for some jokes. <><><>
A policeman was walking down the street when he saw a little girl desperately stretching to reach a door knocker.
”Can I do that for you?” he asked, and gave 3 loud raps on the door. “Brilliant,” said the little girl. “Now run like mad.”
This one is long, a bit rude, but I think it’s funny.
A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with one
of her students. The teacher asked, “Harry, what’s your problem?”
Harry answered, “I’m too smart for the 1st grade. My sister
is in the 3rd grade and I’m smarter than she is. I think I should
be in the 3rd grade too.” Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took
Harry to the principal’s office.
While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained
to the principal what the situation was. He said he would give
the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he
was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.
Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him
and he agreed to take the test.
Principal : “What is 3 X 3?” Harry : “9.”
Principal : “What is 6 X 6?” Harry : “36.”
And so it went on with every question the principal thought a
3rd grader should know. The principal looks at Ms.Brooks and
tells her, “I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade.”
Ms. Brooks says to the principal, “Let he ask him some questions.
The principal and Harry both agreed.
Ms. Brooks asks, “What does a cow have four of that I only have
two of?” Harry, after a moment : “Legs.”
Ms Brooks : “What is in your pants that you have and I do not
have?” The principal wondered why she would ask such a question.
Harry replied : “Pockets.”
Ms. Brooks : “What does a dog do that man steps into?”
Harry : “Pants.”
Ms. Brooks : “What starts with a C and ends with a T, is
hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin white liquid?”
Harry : “Coconut.” The principal sat forward with his mouth
Ms. Brooks : “What is hard and pink then comes out soft and
sticky?” The principal’s eyes opened really wide and before he
could stop the answer, Harry replied, “Bubble Gum.”
Ms. Brooks : “What does a man do standing up, a woman does
sitting down and a dog does on three legs?”
Harry : “Shake hands.”
The principal was trembling.
Ms. Brooks : “What word starts with an F and ends in K that
means a lot of heat and excitement?”
Harry : Firetruck.”
The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher,
“Put Harry in the fifth grade. I got the last seven questions wrong…..”
Going from one extreme to the other, a thought or so from
my calender. Are you still with me ?
