Hello again Friends ~~ Well it is the first of September,
the first day of Spring and the weather was here to prove
it. We had 23 degrees, which I think is about 70 degrees
Fahrenheit. Just very nice, so I plan to enjoy it until it gets
too hot, and then I will complain about that !!!
I have a recipe that I have not made yet, but it sounds as
though it would be very nice.
<><><> It is called Ham and Pineapple Bake. <><><>
Small can of Celery Soup
Small can of drained crushed pineapple
½ cup milk, pepper and salt, Teaspoon chopped parsley
4 medium sliced potatos – par-boiled
1 tablespn butter, 1 onion, 1 cup chopped ham
Chop onion finely and cook in melted butter,
add soup, milk, salt, pepper, parsley, pineapple and ham.
Put a layer of sliced potatos in a greased casserole,
add the other mixed ingredients and cover with a layer
of sliced potatos. Cook in moderate oven for ¾ hour.
I hope that it turns out OK. I plan to make it myself.
I have a little poem for you called “This Age.”
This is the age I had not cared to reach - - -
This outer edge of youth –- when, here and there
A strange new silver thread slips in the hair
And careless days grow further back with each
Additional birthday. These have been the years
I dreaded secrety, and suddenly find
It is a lovely age, and I was blind
To beauty that must follow when the ears
Are more attuned to listening, the touch
More sensitive, and the eyes have learnt at last
To see detail, and not go hurrying past
To newness always. And this age is much
More satisfying, now the heart has lately,
Found love’s not taking but giving greatly.
And now a couple of blonde jokes -----
The blonde reported for her university final examination that consists of yes/no type questions. She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question paper for five minutes and then, in a fit of inspiration, takes out her purse, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin, marking the answer sheet: Yes, for Heads, and No, for Tails.
Within half an hour she is all done, whereas the rest of the class is still sweating it out. During the last few minutes she is seen desperately throwing the coin, muttering and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is going on. "I finished the exam in half an hour, but now I'm
rechecking my answers." >>>>>><<<<<<
THE BEST BLONDE JOKE OF THE YEAR - SO FAR
A man was in his front yard mowing grass when his attractive blonde female neighbor came out of the house and went straight to the mailbox. She opened it then slammed it shut & stormed back into the house.
A little later she came out of her house again went to the mail box and again, opened it, slammed it shut again. Angrily, back into the house she went. As the man was getting ready to edge the lawn, here she came again, marched to the mail box, opened it and then slammed it closed harder than ever.
Puzzled by her actions the man asked her, "Is something wrong?" To which she replied, "There certainly is!"
(are you ready? this is a beauty .)
My stupid computer keeps saying, "YOU'VE GOT MAIL."
