Morning Friends... Supposed to be nice today??.. We can only hope. As long as the sun shines i think it will make us all feel a wee bit better. Since i have been giving me Pal his antibiotec cream, all he has been doing is sleeping! I don"t get it? But me with my cold, it"s good in a way as that"s all i want to do to. His surgery is tomorrow so i just pray that all goes well. Hubby and i are getting things done up today so i can just focus on my little one next week and snuggle till we both get better. I think that"s how i got me cold, was just under too much stress... things will be better once he"s all fixed up.... I received a nice post from Rightwing last night.. He called me a " daisy in a field of weeds " ,lol.. Bless his heart. Lots of " daisys" ( male and female ) on both sites, we sometimes just get choked out by the weeds ,lol... Hope you all have a blessed day....

Good morning Mallet, enjoy a nice soccer sunday and start some stretching. We're heading to a long cozy week.

Get a nice pair of boots, the weatherman is warning people in your area to be prepared for the rise in waters.

Morning one and all, raining here, no sun but on the bright side you don't shovel this stuff.
Irish nice words in the Blue room hope it takes effect.
Well out for breakfast and off to the city, looking for spring updates, more work.

Morning folks...

Bounder...
Didn't see any rain here, just broken cloud and a little sunshine, I don't mind that at all..

Bobby N..
Did grump not tell you I am on a cliff here if the lake level ever gets to me you will be underwater long before I am...

It seems to be melting nicely off the roof and I have 4 above on my weather station.. I can stand as much of that as it wants to give... Just do not like all the puddles, cannot keep the vehicle clean...

Don't feel left out Irishfey, this one's for you...


There was this minister, new in a Scottish church and on taking the living he noticed the church roof badly needed repair. So at the sermon the next sunday he preached about the joy of giving and when the plate was passed round he found sixpences some shillings and a couple of 2 bob bits. As he was counting it out he found it was going to take many years before he could afford a new roof. He had a brother who was a hypnotist in show business and he phoned him to ask how he could possibly make the donations larger. His brother suggested hypnotising the congregation into making larger donations, so his brother sent him a gold fob watch with the instruction on how to use it. Next sunday in his sermon he starts swinging the watch and is amazed at how the people seemed fascinated by the watch and then askes for the plate to be filled with 10 shilling notes, as the plates comes to the front he is amazed to see it is piled high with notes.. Next sunday does the same thing but asks for pound notes, and again the plate is full and he has nearly half the cost of the roof. the following sunday he thinks to himself if I ask for 5 pound notes I shall have enough to repair the roof this week, so up in the pulpit he starts to swing the watch in his sermon and just as he is about to ask for 5 pound notes the watch flies off the chain and he says "Oh shit"... it takes him 3 weeks to get the church cleaned up and aired out!!!!

You see how I take religion very seriously Eh!!

Good morning everyone.

Wow, it's a very nice morning.

The grand kids and I are getting ready for surprised birthday party for my son.

My grandson and I made a white cake yesterday because he doesn't chocolate,
I did the measuring and he did the mixing.

Last night I made the chocolate cake with strawberries in the middle and I decorated the top with the berries, by request from my son.

My 6 year old also did most of the cleaning,lol.
I was surprised he took all the coats off the coat rack and hung them in the closet, for the quest.
I said, tomorrow we have to clean the house, I'll swept and do the dishes and you can pick up,
He said, we have to do better than that, lol.

My son thinks only his family will be here.
My daughter in law also ordered a big cake, my son didn't tell her that he asked me to make him one, so, three cakes, lol.

Later

Mallet.. Where do you find these ,lol.. That was priceless!!! Many years ago i worked in a Bar, and , oh, the jokes,lol.. I just wish i could remember some of them. I will try one i heard, but i"m not the best joketeller so bear with me,.. There was a Man that had a Wife that was, shall we say, a little daft and was quite "ugly "to boot. While he would be working, he would say things to her like," go get me the hammer". She would stroll off and mutter " get the hammer, get the hammer". Then he asked her to go get the nails.. She waddled off again muttering, " get the nails, get the nails". This went on for most of the day. When he hit his thumb with the hammer , he swore, and said.. " Oh fe**""!!,,.. the Wife waddled off muttering.. " get the bag, get the bag"".......I Hope i didn"t screw this up too bad ,lol....You can be religious and still have a sense of humour you know :)

Celeste.. I hope the party is a success. Looks like you put a lot into it and had some fun too... Enjoy the " cakes" ,lol
irishfey 4/6/2014 10:51:51 AM Report

Mallet.. Was a good thing the Minister didn"t pull a J.T and say. " Oh fe**",, The roof would have fell in ,lol...

Bobby N...

Yeah, lots of soccer on today ... everton beat arsenal and now west ham are play liverpool... my home town team lost... again yesterday and are now in real danger of relgation...
Bobby Nerves 4/6/2014 11:55:20 AM Report

Yes, I'm cooking and rather listen to the radio, for the talking thing for my ears.

No soccer, I'd never liked the sport. I was a sport person as a young man and did a lot of sports till my middle 30's when I had a bunch of polo pony's and used to play a couple chukkers here and there, I still miss the horses and often I think about buying a pair here, but that's out of reach for me, mostly cause it requires a lot of maintenance and they are demanding, even more than the dogs.

Point is, that I heard, some English team is interested in having messi doing the tricks for them, that's what I heard, but he's much into the bookies business as I see it, mostly in turkey, as they have a big passion for soccer.
Bobby Nerves 4/6/2014 12:11:50 PM Report

BTW, you know what the English name for what we call the cane, is?

I'll swing it.
EricThe SHERIFF 4/6/2014 1:18:28 PM Report

irishfey,

The part you left out was "the man's wife was so ugly, that when they made love, he made her put a bag over her head"
irishfey 4/6/2014 2:48:10 PM Report

Eric T.S ... shhhh, yes i realized that later, then thought, ah, they get it or they don"t ,lol.. I'm not that good at telling jokes but i love to hear them. I love it when the " Church " jokes are directed at me sometimes, I think some expect me to get on the defence.lol.. I worked in a Bar for over 20 yrs.... Seen it all, heard it all and most likely did it all :).. Not too much shocks me anymore.... That was an old, old joke,,, maby i heard it from you??? ,lol... Later...
irishfey 4/6/2014 3:40:18 PM Report

I will let you all know how it went, but then i might be off for a few days so i can keep a close eye on him.... He"s my Baby and i love him soooooo much!... Have a great evening and God Bless.....

Bobby N...

I am not sure what you mean, but in school a cane is an instrument for inflicting discipline on unruly students, but for major offences, the "slipper" (gym shoe, plymsol, sneaker) is/was used for less serious offences. Here in Canada they also called it the "tawse", someone will correct that spelling of that, no doubt and of course the old "ruler". I never personally got wrong and recieved 3 or 6 of the best, but I also tell stories/ untruths...

Little old lady goes out garage sale looking, and at one site spies a box with an old brass lamp in it... she asks how much and the seller says $5, she bargains and gets it for $3, takes it home and polishes it up... much to her surprise out pops a Genie who says having released him she has 3 wishes... she thinks for a moment then says she wants to be young and beautiful again, and poof she was 21 again and gorgeous, then she said she would like to be extremely wealthy, and poof she had a large portfolio and millions in the bank, the Genie said this will be your last wish make sure you want what you ask for... she thought and then said i want my cat Tiddles to be my Prince.. Poof the genie vanished and Tiddles was 6ft 2 and handsome... that evening they went out to a fine restaurant, then dancing and then went home, as they were getting ready for bed prince Tiddle embraced her and whispered in her ear, " I bet you wish you had not taken me to the vet for that little operation now, arn't you"....
Bobby Nerves 4/6/2014 6:48:16 PM Report

Ha, good one again.

Nope, we call it the cane because it's made with a cane, very flexible and I believe it's the bamboo cane. In English they call it mallet.

Do you know why in winter, the birds fly South?
