Hello my friends ~~ Here we go again with not
a clue what to post at the moment, so I will
have to look through a book or two to see what
I can come up with. I cooked a chicken in the
microwave today and roasted lot of vegetables
and dished up 9 dinners, so it’s good to sit down.
<><><> My Wish For You. <><><>
MAY YOU HAVE . . . .
Enough happiness to keep you sweet,
Enough trials to keep you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
Enough hope to keep you happy
Enough failure to keep you humble,
Enough success to keep you eager,
Enough friends to give you comfort,
Enough wealth to meet your needs,
Enough enthusiasm to look forward,
Enough faith to banish depression,
Enough determination to make each day
better than yesterday and lots of love.
A man met a beautiful woman and he decided
he wanted to marry her right away.
“But we don’t know anything about each other,”
she said. He said that was OK, they would
learn about each other as they went along.
So she agreed and they were married, and went
on a honeymoon to a very nice resort.
One morning, they were lazing round the pool, when
he got up, climbed the 10 m board and did a perfect
2 ½ tucks followed by 3 rotations in jack-knife
position, straightened up and cut the water like a
knife. After a few more demonstrations, he came back
and lay down on a towel.
“That was incredible !” she said. To which he replied:
“I used to be an Olympic diving champion. You see, I told
you we’d learn more about ourselves as we went along.
So she jumped in the pool, and started doing laps.
After about 30 laps she climbed out and lay down on her
towel, hardly out of breath.
“That was incredible !” the man said. “Don’t tell me. You
were an Olympic distance swimmer?”
“No,” she said, I was a hooker in Venice and I worked
both sides of the canal.”
A Red Cross office realised that the organisation had
never received a donation from the town’s most
The person in charge of contributions called to persuade
him to contribute.
“Our research shows that, out of a yearly $500,000, you
don’t give a cent to charity,” the Red Cross guy said.
“Wouldn’t you like to give back to the community in some
way?”. The lawyer mulled this over for a moment before
replying. “First, did your research show that my mother
is very ill and has medical bills several times her annual
income?” the lawyer asked.
Embarrassed, the Red Cross rep mumbled: “Um, no.”
The lawyer interrupted, “Or that my disabled brother is
blind and confined to a wheelcair?”
The stricken Red Cross rep began to stammer out an
apology, but was interrupted again. “Or that my sister is
a recent widow, penniless with three children?”
The humiliated Red Cross rep, completely beaten, said
simply: “I had no idea.”
On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again.
“So if I don’t give any money to them, why should I give
any to you?”
A smile is good for your health – and the health of others.
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
Be grateul when you are feeling good, and graceful when
you’re feeling bad.
Be nice to your children – they choose your nursing home.
