A busy few days

Hi everyone,hope all well in your part of the world as it is with me.
Tuesday was a fun day we had our opening day of Lawn bowls for season 2008/2009.
we had a game of social bowls followed by lunch a few speeches and a few jokes were told to end the day.
Then was of to Visit my Daughter Donna for a couple of hours as it was her birthday. before heading back to the club for Indoor carpet bowls to be a scorer for the nights competion.
Wednesday Back to club for a game of Lawn bowls followed by lunch.
Today Thursday Donna picked me up to go to her friends were a few other friends arrived for a little pampering beauty treatment and a cuppa, before heading to "Coops"for a lovely birthday lunch with the girls..
A lovely lunch was had by all.
Tomorrow im of to help my sister plant a few succulents in a n old wheelbarrow. ill take my camera.
Well Im of for an early night, and I promise to visit you all in the next few days.
Now a few Jokes...


You're worth it! Sometimes we just need to be reminded! A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill.

In the room of 200, he asked,
'Who would like this $20 bill?' Hands started going up.
He said, 'I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.
He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill.
He then asked, 'Who still wants it?' Still the hands were up in the air.
Well, he replied,
'What if I do this?'
And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.
'Now, who still wants it?' Still the hands went into the air.

'My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.

No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.
It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless.
But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you.
The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE and WHOSE WE ARE.
You are special .

Don't EVER forget it.

Count your blessings, not your problems.
And remember that amateurs built the ark
Professionals built the Titanic.'

Wedding of the Wongs
Su Wong marries Lee Wong.
The next year, the Wongs have a new baby.
The nurse brings over a lovely, healthy, bouncy,but definitely a Caucasian, WHITE baby boy.
'Congratulations,' says the nurse to the new parents.
Well Mr. Wong, what will you and Mrs. Wong name the baby?'
The puzzled father looks at his new baby boy and says,'Well, two Wong's don't make a white,so I think we will name him...
Are you ready for this?
Sum Ting Wong

A woman's garden is growing beautifully but the darn tomatoes won't ripen.

There's a limit to the number of uses for green tomatoes and she's getting tired of it.

So she goes to her neighbor and says,"Your tomatoes are ripe, mine are green. What can I do about it?"
Her neighbor replies,"Well, it may sound absurd but here's what to do.
Tonight there's no moon. After dark go out into your garden and take all your clothes off. Tomatoes can see in the dark and they'll be embarrassed and blush.
In the morning they'll all be red, you'll see."
She says Well, what the heck it can't hurt to try it.
Next day her neighbor asks how it worked.
"So-so," she answers.
"The tomatoes are still green but the cucumbers are all four inches longer."


Why parents drink The boss wondered why one of his most valued employee had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper. 'Hello ?'
'Is your daddy home?' he asked.
' Yes ,' whispered the small voice.
'May I talk with him?'
The child whispered, 'No.'
Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, 'Is your Mommy there?'
'May I talk with her?'
Again the small voice whispered, 'No .'
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, 'Is anybody else t here?'
'Yes ,' whispered the child, 'a policeman '. Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, 'May I speak with the policeman?'
' No, he's busy ', whispered the child.
'Busy doing what?'
'Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman ,' came the whispered answer.
Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, 'What is that noise?'
'A helicopter ' answered the whispering voice.
'What is going on there?' demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.
Again, whispering, the child answered, The search team just landed a helicopter . '
Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, 'What are they searching for?'
Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle...
'ME .'


A minister decided to do something a little different one Sunday morning.

He said 'Today, in church, I am going to say a single word and you are going to help me preach.Whatever single word I say, I want you to sing whatever hymn that comes to your mind'

The pastor shouted out 'CROSS. Immediately the congregation started singing in unison, 'THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.

'The pastor hollered out 'GRACE.' The congregation began to sing 'AMAZING GRACE, how sweet the sound.

'The pastor said 'POWER.' The congregation sang 'THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD.

'The Pastor said 'SEX' The congregation fell into total silence.

Everyone was in shock.

They all nervously began to look around at each other afraid to say anything.

Then all of a sudden, way from in the back of the church, A little old 87 year old grandmother stood up and began to sing 'MEMORIES.

Love Little Old Ladies.

Laugh... It burns calories


Hope these brightened someones day ..Cheers \_/ \_/ \_/

G'day Jen! You sound like you've been very VERY busy. so I am guessing that you've been doing well? I haven't done much visiting time lately, but I'm going to try and be a good girl and get here more often.

Happy Birthday to Donna ---belated wishes, but still I do hope she had a great day!

I'm gonna go catch up on what I've been missing lately with you...and promise to return!


Have a super Friday evening [guess it's Saturday for you]. I'm running a little behind in my visiting this afternoon since I've been scrubbing and cleaning all day. It's I'm gonna crash in front of the TV a while. :o)

Dear Jan ~~ Great jokes - thanks for sharing them. I was interested in Peter's comment. I suggested he visit us in Victoria, so here's hoping- it seems ages since I saw him.New car might make the difference. Thanks for your comments, glad you liked the Teacher story and I hope there are some who care as much still working. We got a nice rain all day yesterday and few showers today. Beaut. Take care,dear friend

If laughing burns calories I just lost a little weight :)
I especially liked "Why God made Mums", but there were some other beauties too.
Happy belated birthday Jen. Sounds like you've been having plenty of fun. Loved seeing those pictures of you and Merle.
Happy birthday to Donna too. You've been a busy girl!
Enjoy your bowls! My mum used to be good at bowling. She loved the game.

Oh dear, Jen - I didn't get any further than the one about the tomatoes and the cucumbers - I'm still giggling! Wish Ken was awake; I'll have to try and remember to tell him in the morning. He'll choke over his cuppa...
