A few jokes

Hi Everyone, Hope your all well where ever you maybe. I am still waiting on the return of my computer hopefully ill get it back very shortly.then ill be able to download all my photo's I have taken in my absense from blogging. In the mean time I have been able to download a few bits and pieces onto my old computer its a lot slower, but hopefully ill be able to get around and visiting you all very soon.


An Irish daughter had not been home for over 5 years.
Upon her return, her father cussed her,'Where have ye been all this time? Why did ye not write to us, not even a line? Why didn't ye call? Can ye not understand what ye put yer old mum thru?The girl, crying, replied, 'Sniff, sniff....dad....I became a prostitute......'Ye what!!?
Out of here, ye shameless harlot! Sinner! You're a disgrace to this family.''
OK, dad-- as ye wish.
I just came back to give mum this luxurious fur coat, title deed to a ten bedroom mansion plus a savings certificate for $5 millionFor me little brother, this gold Rolex and for ye daddy the sparkling new Mercedes limited edition convertible that's parked outside plus a membership to the country club....(takes a breath).... and an invitation for ye all to spend New Years Eve on board my new yacht in the Riviera, and..
''Now what was it ye said ye had become?' says dad.
Girl, crying again, 'Sniff, sniff....a prostitute dad! Sniff, sniff.''Oh! Be Jesus! Ye scared me half to death, girl! I thought ye said a Protestant.

Come here and give yer old man a hug!'


Driving to the office this morning on the interstate, I looked over to my left and there was a
woman in her brand newMercedes doing 65 miles per hour.
With her face up next to her rear view mirror putting on her makeup!
I looked away for a couple seconds and whenI looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that damn makeup!!

Well, I'm a man, but this sight scared me so badly,I dropped my electric razor, which knocked the donut out my other hand, then while trying to straighten out the car using my knee, it knocked my cell phone away from my ear which fell into the coffee between my legs, splashed and burned my crotch, ruined the damn phone and disconnected a very important call!!


Woman's Poem

He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake.
He said my biscuits were too hard...
Not like his mother used to make.
I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.
I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue.
Then I turned around and smacked the shit out of him...
Like his MOTHER used to do.


To end with a few Adages,

One today is worth two tomorrows.

Give thy purse rather than thy time.

A man who does nothing never has time to do anything.

They who make the best use of their time have none to spare.

Lost time is never found again.

Nothing is more precious than time, yet nothing less valued.

In the short life of man no lost time can be afforded.

Lose no time; be always employed in something useful.

Keep out of all unnecessary action. B. Franklin

Just visited for the 1st time, saw your blog via Allotment Ladys' blog.
What a laugh I've had! Thank you.
I have a peice of card from a keyring fob that says, " The most wasted day of all is that in we which we have not laughed." True.

I'm feeling so much better this week that I could laugh without coughing.

What a joy!!! I've got to remember that first one for my Irish boss at work. She loves them -- and then she can repeat them with a fake accent that is very entertaining.

Hi Jeanette, To answer the question you asked 'The Hiking Gardener'. The West Highalnd Way walk was undertaken back in 1990 and during every long walk I did I experienced just about every emotion going during the walk but basically speaking I didn't get to feeling lonely or miss anything back home but for some reason these past few years have been without long walks for that very reason. The last couple of long walks that I did I missed my family and everything really badly which is a shame as I used to enjoy getting away walking for weeks at a time. With regard to my 'As The Night Falls' blog I'm thinking it will be as 'The Gardener To The Big House' was but without the big house pics if you see what I mean. Bob.

Then I turned around and smacked the shit out of him...
Like his MOTHER used to do.

The time adages were interesting too.

I hope you get your computer back soon, but Now I'm out of time.

Hi again Jan ~~ Glad it sounds as though you will soon have your computer back which will be beaut.
And not having another trip is good too. John is fine and even climbed on my roof to turn on the Evap.Colling
Just is time - it's a hottie today.
We went to the craft market, but all I wanted was more Pelargoniums, so we got them and left. Didn't want to keep him in the heat for too long.
Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Hi Jeanette, with regard to your comment on 'The Hiking Gardener' about the hips, there was a reason for why they were huring so much at the start of this walk and the reason will eventually be disclosed. Hope you're managing to stay cool. Bob.

Hi once again Jan ~~ I will be glad when you get your computer back and put on a new post!! Glad John got the cooler on for me and hope you got yours on too. Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler. I like the sound of the nearly black pelagonium Gen gave you.
I took more pics today to post tomorrow.
Take care, Love, Merle.
