What ingredients are mothers made of ?
1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.

I think.

2. She got too old to do anything else with him.
3. My Grandma says that Mum didn't have her thinking cap on.
Who's the boss at your house?
1. Mum doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.
2. Mum. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed
.3. I guess Mum is, but only because she has a lot more to do than Dad
What's the difference between Mums & Dads?
1. Mums work at work and work at home and Dads just go to work at work.
2. Mums know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller & stronger, but Mums have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
4. Mums have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.
What does your Mum do in her spare time?
1. Mothers don't do spare time.
2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.
What would it take to make your Mum perfect?
1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.
If you could change one thing about your Mum, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my Mum smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

And anyone else who has aything to do with kids
needs a good laugh!

A First Grade Story
One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class.

She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home.
She read, "...And so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said, 'Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build my house?'
" The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that man said?"
One little boy raised his hand and said, "I know...he said---'Holy Shit! A talking pig!'" The teacher was unable to teach for the next 10 minutes


A Teacher asks her class, "If there are 5 birds sitting on a fence and you shoot one of them, how many will be left?"
He replies, "None, they will all fly away with the first gun shot." The teacher replies, "The correct answer is 4, but I like your thinking."
Then little Johnny says "I have a question for YOU.
There are Three women sitting on a bench having ice cream: One is delicately licking the sides of the triple scoop of ice cream.
The second is gobbling down the top and sucking the cone.
The third is biting off the top of the ice cream.
Which one is married?" The teacher, blushing a great deal, replied, "Well, I suppose the one that's gobbled down the top and sucked the cone.
To which Little Johnny replied,
"The correct answer is 'the one with the wedding ring on', but I like your thinking."


A woman answered her front door and found Little Johnny holding a list.

lady," Johnny explained,

I'm on a scavenger hunt, and I still need three grains of wheat, a pork-chop bone and a piece of used carbon paper so I can earn a dollar.

""Wow," the woman replied.

Who sent you on such a challenging hunt?

""My babysitter's boyfriend."


to end with a few quotes

The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are."--Marcus Aurelius

"To live happily is an inward power of the soul."--Marcus Aurelius

"Happiness is having a large, loving, caring family in another city."--George Burns

"Happiest are the people who give most happiness to others."--Dennis Diderot

Hi Dear Jan ~~ Great post and lots of laughs. My fave was the talking pig I think. Loved them all. Thank you for your comments, and like you I choose to be in a good mood always. I am so glad you enjoyed your day here, we all did I reckon. Thank you for the photos and we all looked OK. Geoff trimmed a lot off the overhanging trees in my front and back gardens so more light can get in now. He used Lorraine's long handled tree lopper.
Then they went off to get a trailer load of wood at Mathoura. Take care dear friend, Love, Merle. x x

Hi again Jan ~~ Thanks for your comments, and I am not keen on
motorcycles either. John has one and rides it quite a bit. He is in Ulysses Club and a Far Riders' one wher they meet up in some place which has to be a 500 km ride. I hope you got your early night to catch up after some busy days.. Take great care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Hi Jen. I love the line "Happiest are the people who give most happiness to others." I always feel a sense of fulfillment and happiness whenever I help someone.
