Howdy Friends ~~ Here we are again. The shopping is all
put awayand so the cupboards are all stocked up again. I
am determined to always forget something and today it was
the very necessary Paracetamol which I need every day to
get through each day. However I try to stay ahead of most
things so I will have enough.
I bought a nice card to send to my cousin who is very ill with
cancer and I liked the words on it, and hope Kath will also.
It has a heading of “ You are never alone.”
There’s a wonderful peace in just knowing
that God never leaves us alone,
And whether we feel He is with us or not,
He loves us and calls us His own.
His Word is our hope and our comfort,
A refuge when life brings our way
Those times we need wisdom and guidance
And strength to sustain us each day.
<> A Short Fun Poem. called Order of the Day <>
“Rise ! ” says my brain to my body.
“To greet this splendid day !
Fling back the quilt with abandon,
Forthwith, without delay !”
“Bound out of bed with vigour !”
My brain is quick to decree ……
While my body burrows down deeper,
And sleepily asks, “Who, ME ???”
<><><> And Some funnies. <><><>
A cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral.
A huge heart covered with flowers stood behind the
casket during the service. Following the eulogy, the
heart opened, and the casket rolled inside, sealing the
doctor in the beautiful heart forever.
At that point, one of the mourners burst into laughter.
When all eyes stared at him, he said, “I’m sorry, I was
just thinking of my own funeral… I’m a gynecologist.”
At that point, the proctologist fainted.
<><><> Exercise for Seniors <><><>
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you
have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5 kg (10lb) potato sack in each hand, extend your
arms straight out from your sides and hold them there
as long as you can. Try to hold for a full minute, then
relax. Each day, you’ll find that you can hold this position
for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to a 10 kg (20lb) sack.
Then 50 kg (100 lb) potato sacks and eventually try to lift
a 100 kg (200lb).
Put a potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight
for more than a full minute.
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each
of the sacks; … but be careful.
