Hello again Everyone ~~ Another nice day here , hoping you had the
same. I did some washing, and even pulled a few weeds (very few)
and then watched Geelong beat Sydney in the football. Tonight I will
watch Fremantle play St Kilda. I know the coach of Freo as his
family used to live next door to us in Nathalia. Chris now lives way
over in Western Australia., but when he started school my two girls
used to take him to school as they were a bit older. In spite of this,
I would like to see the Saints win. (A Victorian team). Carlton play
tomorrow and I will have to listen to it on the radio, as there is no
TV coverage. My friend Val will barrack hard for us I’m sure.
<><> You and Yourself <><>
It is rewarding to find someone whom you like, but it is essential to
It is quickening to recognize someone as a good and decent human being,
but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect, admiration,
and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things.
For you cannot live in someone else. You cannot find yourself in someone
else. You cannot be given a life by someone else.
Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will
never leave nor lose.
To the question of your life, you are the only answer.
To the problems of your life, you are the only solution.
<><> Now for some jokes that my friend Pea sent to me. <><>
Thanks Carole in Canada.
The Water Pistol
When my 3 year-old son opened the birthday gift from his grandmother and
found a water pistol, he squealed with delight and headed for the nearest sink.
I was not so pleased. I turned to mom and said, "I'm surprised at you. Don't
you remember how we used to drive you crazy with water guns?"
Mom smiled and then replied, "I remember."
A guy falls asleep on the beach for several
hours and gets a horrible sunburn.
He goes to the hospital, and is promptly
admitted after being diagnosed with
With his skin already starting to blister,
and the severe pain he was in, the doctor
prescribes continuous intravenous feeding
with saline, electrolytes, a sedative,
and a Viagra pill every four hours.
The nurse, who is rather astounded, says,
"What good will Viagra do for him, Doctor?
The doctor replied,
"It'll keep the sheets off his legs."
A man and his wife are dining at a table in a plush restaurant, and the
husband keeps staring at an old drunken lady swigging her gin as she
sits alone at a nearby table, until the wife asks, "Do you know her?"
"Yes," sighs the husband, "She's my ex-wife. She took to drink right after we divorced seven years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since." "My God!", says the wife, "Who would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?

One hundred years from now
It won’t matter
What kind of care I drove
What kind of house I lived in
How much money I had in the bank
Nor what my clothes looked like
The world may be a little better
Because, I was important

<><><> And some thoughts for you <><><>
Old age is like a plane flying through a storm. Once you’re
aboard, there is nothing you can do. You can’t stop the plane,
you can’t stop the storm, you can’t stop time. So one might as
well accept it calmly and wisely. --- Golda Meir.
Grey hair is great. Ask any bald man. –Lee Trevino.
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is
because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the
music which he hears, however measured or far away.
---Henry David Thoreau.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine
when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true
beauty is revealed only if there is a light within.
--- Elizabeth Kubler-Ross.
Bye for now, ‘till next time, Take care my friends, Merle.
