Hi all. Gwen and myself back home after a very busy time in Melbourne, Firstly We went to see Gary,"my son" then off to pick up Gwens new computer, after 1hr or so it was off to Gary and Christine's. we were only there a short time ,when it was time to leave, so into Christine's car and off too Kara's 1st concert (See Photo's' Gwen and Myself , along with family and friends had a lovely time at the concert Kara was smallest one on stage she was just gorgous and stole the show. but then I am Biased.
After a very late friday night had a Quiet Saturday before" we" Gwen,Myself,Gary, Joanne and their family's went out for a lovely dinner .Next day payed both my twin brothers Edward & Peter a visit, Who were pleased to see us .Im pleased to say Edward is recovering well after his major surgery afew months ago .Then arrived home very late Monday eve. shopped Tuesday. and Bowled today. I Will catch up and visit all my blogging friends in the next couple days
Well folk just finish off with a couple of jokes
A little boy went up to his father and asked:
"Dad, where DID all of my intelligence come from?
The father replied.
"Well son, you must have got it from your mother, cause I still have mine"
Be obedient, no matter how much the Master's plan doesn't make sense to you.
Ms. Smith stopped to reprove Johnny for making faces:
"Johnny, when I was small, my mother used to tell me that if I made ugly faces, at some moment it would freeze and stay like that.
" Johnny looked up at her and thoughtfully replied:
"Well, Ms. Smith, you can't say you weren't forewarned."

Little Johnny was in class and the teacher announced that they were going to try something different to help everyone get to know each other a little better, and to help with their spelling. She explained, "I want you to stand up and give us the occupation of your father, spell it, and say one thing he would give us all if he was here today."
The first student raised her hand to volunteer.
"Marcy," the teacher said. "You may go first."
Marcy replied, "My father is a banker. B-A-N-K-E-R and if he was here today, he would give us all a shiny new penny."
The teacher said, "Very nice, Marcy, who wants to go next?
" Kevin stood up and announced, "My father is a baker. B-A-K-E-R and if he was here today, he would give us all a freshly-baked cookie."
"Very good," the teacher told Kevin.
Jeff was next, and he said, "My father is an accountant. A-K, no wait, A-C-K, no..." Before he could attempt to spell it once more, the teacher cut him off and told him to sit back down and to think about it for a while.
When he thought he knew how to spell it, he could stand back up and try again.
Little Johnny raised his hand in excitement hoping to be acknowledged by the teacher.
The teacher called on little Johnny to go next.
Johnny said, "My father is a bookie. B-O-O-K-I-E and if he was here today, he would give us all 20:1 odds Jeff will never be able to spell "accountant."

Greetings from the Mojave Desert.

I went over and looked at the photos of your little dancer. How exciting those first dance recitals can be.

My grand-daughter was in a production of Music Man this summer. At 6, she was the youngest in the cast. I was there for a few practices, and it was so much fun watching her first thespian attempts.

Glad you had such a good time with your family. Kara is a little doll. I remember those ballet concerts well. Kylie used to take ballet lessons when we lived in Australia. The concerts are fun and the costumes are always so cute.
My hubby and I have had some laughs reading your jokes :)
Thanks for visiting and for the happy birthday wishes for our grandson. We enjoyed his party!

Hi Jen -- Glad you had a good time at Melbourne with Little Jen and especially that Kara. Isn't she precious!

Thanks for your comment, but you insulted poor Pookie, she is a girl and a real female cat with everything around. I am sure if she weren't spayed she would have hundreds of kittens and never know who the father is, as she would have her head in the garbidge bin. She also walks like some girls usually located behind a rail station and swings her hips from one side to the other ! That's why I had to laugh about taking her for a male, poor girl !
