Tomorrow Thursday Im off to play carpet bowls.
Now on with a few jokes.
Two drops of water]

A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water.
As the bartender gives her the drink she says, 'I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it's today..
.'The bartender says, 'Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink.
In fact, this one is on me.'as the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, 'I would like to buy you a drink, too.
'The old woman says, 'Thank you.
Bartender, I want a scotch with two drops of water.
''Coming up,' says the bartender as she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, 'I would like to buy you one, too.
'The old woman says, 'Thank you.
Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water.
''Coming right up,' the bartender says
.As he gives her the drink, he says, 'Ma'am, I'm dying Of curiosity.
Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?
'The old woman replies, 'Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor. Holding your water, however, is a whole other issue.
''OLD' IS WHEN... Your sweetie says, 'Let's go upstairs and make love,' and you answer,'Pick one; I can't do Both!
''OLD' IS WHEN...Your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you're barefoot.'
OLD' IS WHEN... A sexy babe catches your fancy and your pacemaker opens the garage door,
'OLD' IS WHEN... Going bra less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.
'OLD' IS WHEN... You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.
'OLD' IS WHEN... You are cautioned to slow down By the doctor instead of by the police
'OLD' IS WHEN... 'Getting a little action' means you don't need to take any fiber today.
'OLD' IS WHEN... 'Getting lucky' means you find your car in the parking lot.
'OLD' IS WHEN... An 'all nighter' means not getting up to use the bathroom.
AND 'OLD' IS WHEN... You are not sure these are Jokes?
Seeing-eye Pilots

Passengers on a plane are waiting for the flight to leave.
The entrance opens, and two men walk up the aisle, dressed in pilot uniforms.
Both are wearing dark glasses.
One is using a seeing-eye dog, and the other is tapping his way up the aisle with a cane. Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start.
The passengers begin glancing nervously, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke.
None is forthcoming.
The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and people at the windows realize that they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport.
As it begins to look as though the plane will never take off, that it will plow into the water, screams of panic fill the cabin. But at that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.
Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot and says, "You know, Bob, one of these days, they're going to scream too late, and we're all gonna die."

Two blondes were nailing shingles onto the roof.
The second blonde noticed the first one was throwing almost half her nails away, down to the ground.
She asked of the first why she was throwing so many away.
The first blonde replied that so many of them were turned wrong, away from the roof rather than towards it.
"Silly," retorted the second blonde, '
"why aren't you saving them for the other side?"


A cat died and went to Heaven.

God met her at the gates and said, 'You have been a good cat all these years.

Anything you want is yours for the asking.

The cat thought for a minute and then said, 'All my life I lived on a farm and slept on hard wooden floors.

I would like a real fluffy pillow to sleep on.'God said, 'Say no more.'

Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.

A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went to Heaven together.

God met the mice at the gates with the same offer that He made to the cat.

The mice said, 'Well, we have had to run all of our lives: from cats, dogs, and even people with brooms! If we c ould just have some little roller skates, we would not have to run again.'

God answered, 'It is done.' All the mice had beautiful little roller skates.

About a week later, God decided to check on the cat.

He found her sound asleep on her fluffy pillow.

God gently awakened the cat and asked, 'Is everything okay?

How have you been doing?

Are you happy?'

The cat replied, 'Oh, it is WONDERFUL.

I have never been so happy in my life.

The pillow is so fluffy, and those little Meals on Wheels you have been sending over are delicious


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

So love the people who treat you right.

Love the ones who don't just because you can.

Believe everything happens for a reason.

If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.

If it changes your life, let it. Kiss slowly.

Forgive quickly.

;God never said life would be easy.

He just promised it would be worth it.


Thats all folk Cheers \_/ \_/ \_/

A few more jokes

Stranded Scotsman

A Scotsman has been stranded on a deserted island for more than 10 years.
One day he sees a speck on the horizon. He thinks to himself,

'It canna be a ship.' And, as the speck gets closer and closer, he rules
out the possibilities of a small boat or even a raft.
In the end there emerges from the surf a figure clad in a black wet-suit.
The scuba gear and the top of the wet suit are removed to reveal a
drop-dead-gorgeous blonde! The vision strides up to the stunned Scotsman
and says,
'Tell me, how long has it been since you've had a cigarette?'
'Ten years,' replies the dazed Scotsman. At which, she reaches into a
waterproofed pocket on the left sleeve of her wet suit, and pulls out a
fresh pack of Players Navy Cut. He takes one, lights it, and inhales
s-l-o-w-l-y. 'Aye,' he says, 'that is so good I'd almost forgotten how
great a smoke can be!'
'And how long since you've had a drop of good Scotch whiskey?' the blonde
enquires. Trembling, the castaway replies, 'Ten years.'
Hearing that, the blonde reaches over to her right sleeve, unzips another
pocket and removes a flask. He opens it and takes a l-o-n-g swig. 'Tis
nectar of the gods!' he sighs in gratitude. 'Tis truly fantastic!!!'
At this point the gorgeous blonde starts to slowly unzip the long front of
her wet suit, right down the middle. She looks at the trembling man and
asks, 'And how long has it been since you played around?'
With tears in his eyes, the Scotsman falls to his knees. 'God almighty,'
he sobs. 'Dinna tell me you've got golf clubs in there too!'
Are You in Tune?
Husband and wife are getting all snugly in bed.
The passion is heating up.
But then the wife stops and says "I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me.
" The husband says "WHAT??"
The wife explains that he must not be in tune with her emotional needs as a Woman.
The husband realizes that nothing is going to happen tonight and he might as well deal with it.
So the next day the husband takes her shopping at a big dept. store.
He walks around and has her try on three very expensive outfits.
And then tells his wife.
We'll take all three of them.
Then goes over and gets matching shoes worth $200 each, and then goes to the Jewelry Dept. and gets a set of diamond earrings.
The wife is so excited (she thinks her husband has flipped out, but she does not care). she goes for the tennis bracelet.
The husband says "but you don't even play tennis, but OK if you like it then lets get it."
The wife is jumping up and down so excited she cannot even believe what is going on.
She says "I am ready to go, lets go to the cash register."
The husband says," no - no - no, honey we're not going to buy all this stuff."
The wife's face goes blank.
"No honey - I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while."
Her face gets really red and she is about to explode and then the husband says,
"You must not be in tune with my financial needs as a MAN!!!!
Little Johnny

Fred and Mary got married but couldn't afford a honeymoon so they go back to Fred's Mom and Dad's for their first night together.
In the morning, Johnny, Fred's little brother, gets up and has his breakfast.
As he is going out of the door to go to school, he asks his mom if Fred and Mary are up yet.
She replies, 'No'.Johnny asks, 'do you know what I think?
'His mom replies, 'I don't want to hear what you think! Just go to school.'
Johnny comes home for lunch and asks his mom, 'Are Fred and Mary up yet?'
She replies, 'No.'Johnny says, 'Do you know what I think?
'His mom replies, 'Never mind what you think! Eat your lunch and go back to school.'
After school, Johnny comes home and asks again, 'Are Fred and Mary up yet?
'His mom says, 'No.'He asks, 'Do you know what I think?'
His mom, getting aggravated replies, 'Ok then, now tell me what you think Johnny says: 'Last night Fred came to my room for the Vaseline and I think I gave him my model airplane glue.'

Paddy was a youthful and hard working Irishman at a coastal village in Ireland.
Daily he would pole a heavy old punt out to sea then work a heavy iron grapple to bring up the sand oysters which he sold to the local ice works.
He was a man of regular habits he always arrived home each day at a certain time. Sadly Paddy did not realise the heavy grappling was taking a toll on a faulty heart.
One day he failed to come home, so his wife contacted the Police to investigate him missing.
They rowed out and found Paddy dead in the punt, beside him a huge grapple full of oysters he'd tried to hoist aboard.
The headline next day in the 'Irish Times' Newspaper was.....




'Good friends are like stars.....

....You don't always see them,

but you know they are always there'

'Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today'

A Little Laughter

Arther is 90 years old.

He's played golf every day since his retirement 25 years ago.
One day he arrives home looking downcast.
"That's it", he tells his wife. "I'm giving up golf. My eyesight has got so bad.... once I've hit the ball, I can't see where it went."
His wife sympathizes, and makes him a cuppa.
As they sit down she says, "Why don't you take my brother with you, and give it one more try".
"That's no good" sighs Arthur. "Your brother's a hundred and three. He can't help".
"He may be a hundred and three", says the wife, but his eyesight is perfect".
So the next day Arthur heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law.
He tees up, takes an almighty swing and squints down the fairway.
He turns to the brother-in-law.
"Did you see the ball?"
"Of course I did!"
"Where did it go?" says Arthur.
"I can't remember".


Two old ladies are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain.
One of the old ladies pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her cigarette, and continues smoking.
Maude: What in the hell is that? Mabel: a condomthis way my cigarette doesn't get wet.
Maude: Where did you get it? Mabel: You can get them at any drugstore.
The next day, Maude hobbles herself into the local drugstore and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms .
The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she is after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what brand of condom she prefers.
'Doesn't matter Sonny, as long as it fits on a Camel.' The pharmacist fainted.

A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology courses. She started her class by saying, "Everyone who thinks you're stupid, stand up!" After a few seconds, Little Johnny stood up.
The teacher said, "Do you think you're stupid, Little Johnny? "No, ma'am, but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself!"

Daddy's car in the woods?

Little Johnny watched his daddy's car pass by the school playground and go into the woods. Curious, he followed the car and saw Daddy and Aunt Jane in a passionate embrace.

Little Johnny found this so exciting that he could hardly contain himself as he ran home and started to tell his mother.

'Mummy, I was at the playground and I saw Daddy's car go into the woods with Aunt Jane, I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, and then he helped her take off her shirt. Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane...'At this point Mummy cut him off and said, 'Johnny, this is such an interesting story, lets save the rest of it for supper time. I want to see the look on Daddy's face when you tell it tonight.'

At the dinner table that evening, Mummy asked little Johnny to tell his story Johnny started his story, 'I was at the playground and I saw Daddy's car go into the woods with Aunt Jane. I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, then he helped her take off her shirt,Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane and Daddy started doing the same thing that Mummy and Uncle Bill used to do when Daddy was away on the rigs

.'Mummy fainted!

Moral: Sometimes you need

listen to the whole story before you interrupt!



There once was an Indian who had only one testicle, and whose given name was 'Onestone.

He hated that name and asked everyone not to call him Onestone.

After years and years of torment, Onestone finally cracked and said,'If anyone calls me Onestone again I will kill them!

'The word got around and nobody called him that any more.

Then one day a young woman named Blue Bird forgot and said, 'Goodmorning, Onestone.

'He jumped up, grabbed her and took her deep into the forest where he made love to her all day and all night.

He made love to her all the next day, until Blue Bird died from exhaustion.

The word got around that Onestone meant what he promised he would do.

Years went by and no one dared call him by his given name until a woman named Yellow Bird returned to the village after being away.

Yellow Bird, who was Blue Bird's cousin, was overjoyed when she saw Onestone.

She hugged him and said, 'Good to see you, Onestone.

'Onestone grabbed her, took her deep into the forest, then he made love to her all day, made love to her all night, made love to her all the next day, made love to her all the next night, but Yellow Bird wouldn't die!

What is the moral of this story?????.
.OH, Come on... take a guess!

Think about it..

.(You're going to love this!)



And the moral is...

You can't kill two birds with one stone!!


Hope these made you smile today.
