White Lies.

Hello my friends ~~ Well all stocked up again AND I

did not forget anything this time. So that is a nice

change. The weather is so nice these days, it is a

pleasure to be able to move away from the heater and

the power bills and gas should be lower for awhile. At

least until the cooling brings them up again. What fun !!


<><><><> A Poem Called White Lies. <><><><>

In hospital beds side by side they lay,

The youth with fair hair, the old man with grey.

The older man chatted as days went by,

But from the youth, there came no reply.


Then to the man came a wonderful thought,

The youth’s attention at last he caught,

“Here, from my window by my bed,

The nicest things I can see,” he said.


“Here comes a lad with the tiniest pup,

It’s lagging a bit, he’s picked it up,

A couple of cars – a narrow squeak that !

And here’s a girl with the cutest hat.”


And so it went on, for quite a long spell,

Till the old man went home, having been made well !

When the nurse came around, the young man said,

“Please nurse, may I have the old man’s bed ?”


In the bed by the window the youth now lay,

Eagerly waiting for break of day.

Then what did he see ? Why nothing at all,

Nothing, except a tall, bare, brick wall !!!


<><>Probably you have read it before, but it is a nice one.<><>

<><><> Now for a joke or so. first “The Bull” <><><>

A man took his wife to the rodeo and one of their first stops was the

breeding bull exhibit. They went up to the first pen and there was a sign

attached that said, "This bull mated 50 times last year."

<><><> The wife playfully nudged her husband in the ribs and said, "See he mated

50 times last year ... once-a-week." They walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said, "This

bull mated 120 times last year." The wife gave her husband a healthy jab and said, "That's more than twice

a week! You could learn a lot from him."

<><><> They walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said, in capital

letters, "This bull mated 365 times last year." The wife, so excited that her elbow nearly broke her husband's ribs, said,

that's once-a-DAY. You could REALLY learn something from this one." The husband looked at her and said, "Go over and ask him if it was with

the same old cow."

<><><> NOTE: The husband's condition has been upgraded from critical to stable

and the doctors say after months of rehab and a couple more surgeries he

will likely be okay.

<><><> One Day at the Doctor’s Office. <><><>

An elderly couple showed up at the doctor’s office

together one day The doctor asks “What can I do for you ?”

The man said, “We’d like you to watch us have sex, and

make sure everything is all right.”


The doctor looked puzzled, but agreed. When the couple

finished, the doctor daid,”There’s nothing wrong with the way

you have sex, everything id fine.” He charged them $50. and

they went on their way.


The next week, they showed up again with the same request,

and the next week and several weeks in a row. The couple would

make an appointment, have sex with no problems, pay the doctor

and leave. Finally the doctor asked, “ Just exactly what

are you trying to find out ?”


The old man said, “We’re not trying to find out anything. She

is married and we can’t go to her house. I’m married and we can’t

go to my house. The Holiday Inn charges $90.

The Hilton charges $109. We do it here for $50. and I get

$43. back from Medicare.”

<><><><> And a few thoughts for you <><><><>

Do not be afaid to take a big step if one is required.

You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps.

n David Lloyd Gearge.


May you have food and raiment,

A soft pillow for your head.

May you be half an hour in heaven,

Before the devil knows you’re dead.

Sounds like a good shopping trip, I'm impressed, not forgetting anything, what's your secret? I even forget something that is on my list LOL

You can have some of our heat, it will be around 95F here, too hot for the end of Aug, I want my 60-70's back!

Hey Merle,
as always I loved this post!
I loved the bit about polishing the dull side...something I've found I need to do in life, and most of the time it comes out that it wansn't that bad to begin with!!

Sue said...

Enjoyed the laughs, as usual. Our gas and electric will start to go up in Oct.
(just as yours go down)
Hope you enjoy the stuffed bells. I freeze the leftover with no problem. (just reheat in microwave and it makes a quick meal again)

Ms. Vickie said...

Enjoyed another visit here today Ms. Merle. Thank you. Now the secret to your shopping ways,
I always forget things and usually what I need most. :)
It is still very hot and humid so we of course would like to see our gas go up a little
because that would mean the cool season is here.

Have a nice day.

Janice said...

Hi Merle,

You did post the one about the breeding bull, and I had told my husband that joke and he really thought it was good.

I like the saying: If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side. Anon.

Take care, Janice~
