Happy New year

G'day everyone , Just popped in to wish you all a Happy & Safe 2009.

I currently have a full house of family and friends, 22 in all. My home resembles a camping ground with a Caravan, two family size tents and a few cars taking up most of the backyard.

I am having a wonderful time and will get around to visiting you all as soon as time permits.
Will post photos at a later date.

My Wish for You in 2009
May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of $100 bills.
May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!
May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy.
May the problems you had forget your home address!
In simple words ............

May 2009 be the best year of your life!!!
Now to end with a little humour

Aussie Drovers
Two cattle drovers standing in an Outback bar.
One asked, ' What are ya up to, Mate? '
Ahh, I'm takin' a mob of 6000 from Goondiwindi to Gympie. '
' Oh yeah........and what route are you takin'? '
Ah, prob'ly the Missus............. after all, she stuck by me durin' the

Two chimps and a Blonde

- . A blonde lady motorist was about two hours from the Gold Coast when she was flagged down by a man whose truck had broken down.
The man walked up to the car and asked, 'Are you going to the Gold Coast?" 'Sure,' answered the blonde, 'do you need a lift ?' 'Not for me.
I'll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck my problem is I've got two chimpanzees in the back which have to be taken to the Gold Coast Zoo.
They're a bit stressed already so I don't want to keep them on the road all day could you possibly take them to the zoo for me ?
I' ll giveyou $100 for your trouble..
' 'I'd be happy to,' said the blonde.
So the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of the blonde's car and carefully strapped into their seat belts.
Off they went. Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of the Gold Coast when suddenly he was horrified!!

There was the blonde walking down the street and holding hands with the two chimps, much to the amusement of a big crowd.
With a screech of brakes he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde.
'What the heck are you doing here ?' he demanded,

'I gave you $100 to take these chimpanzees to the zoo.'

'Yes, I know you did,' said the blonde,' but we had money left over

---so now we're going to SeaWorld ..



A foursome of guys is waiting at the men's tee, while Another foursome of women is hitting from the ladies' tees.

The ladies are taking their time.

When the final lady is Ready to hit off, she hacks the ball ten feet.

She goes over and whiffs it completely.

Then she hacks it another ten feet, and finally hacks it another five feet.

she looks up at the patiently waiting men and says apologetically,"I guess all those DAMN
lessons I took over the winter didn't help.

"One of the men immediately responds, "Well, there you have it, you should have taken golf Lessons instead!"

He never even had a chance to duck.


The Naked Refrigerator Guy
Three men approached the gate to heaven and as there was only one opening left, the gatekeeper said that whoever had the most remarkable and worthy death could enter.

He asked the first man how he died, and the man replied,

'Imagine this -- I suspected my wife was having an affair behind my back and I wanted to find out the truth.

I came home from work one day to surprise her and catch her in the act,when I searched the house I found her in the bathroom,the mirror was fogged and she had a towel on but her hair wasn't wet, so I knew she wasn't taking a shower.I looked all around the house to find the guy. I found ten fingers hanging onto the window sill outside. I pounded them until he finally let go. When he fell he landed in some bushes and God must have loved him because he lived, so I threw the refrigerator out the window to finish him off.

After all the excitement I fell dead of a heart attack.'

Then the gatekeeper asked the second man how he died. He replied, 'Imagine this -- I'm minding my own business on top of my apartment building.

I was riding one of those stationary bicycles when the screws gave out and I flew off the side. I reached out and caught a window sill, then some idiot started pounding on my fingertips. When I fell I landed in some bushes and God must have loved me because I lived.

But then that same idiot threw his refrigerator out the window and it crushed me.'

'That, too, is horrible,' said the gate keeper.

Then he asked the third man the same question.

His reply was,

'OK, imagine this, I'm naked in a refrigerator...'

Now time for a little humour

Christmas Office Party

After the annual office Christmas party blow-out, John woke up with a pounding headache, cotton-mouthed, and utterly unable to recall the events of the preceding evening.

After a trip to the bathroom he was able to make his way downstairs, where his wife put some coffee in front of him.

"Louise," he moaned, "tell me what went on last night.

Was it as bad as I think?"

"Even worse," she assured him in her most scornful one. "

You made a complete ass of yourself, succeeded in antagonizing the entire board of directors, and insulted the chairman of the company to his face."

"He's an arrogant, self-important prick, piss on him!"

"You did.

All over his suit, " Louise informed him.

"And he fired you."

"Well, screw him," said John.

"I did. You're back at work on Monday."


A Scotsman calls his son in London the day before Christmas Eve and says, I hate to ruin your day, laddie but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

'Dad, what are you talking about?' the son screams.

We cannae stand the sight of each other any longer,' the father says. 'We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Leeds and tell her.'

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. 'Like hell they're getting divorced,' she shouts, 'I'll take care of this,'
She calls Scotland immediately, and screams at her father, 'You are NOT getting divorced.

Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?' and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. 'Okay,' he says, 'they're coming for Christmas - and they're paying their own way.'


The Parrot

A young man named John received a parrot as a Christmas gift.

The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.
Everything the bird said was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.
John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.
Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot.
The parrot yelled back.

John shook the parrot and the parrot became angrier and even ruder.
John, in desperation, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed and swore.

Then suddenly there was total quiet.

Not a peep was heard for over a minute.
Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened thedoor to the freezer.

The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arm and said:
"I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions.

I'm sincerely remorseful for my transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior.

" John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.

As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued,

"May I ask what the turkey did?"

A few one liners
What beats his chest and swings from Christmas cake to Christmas cake? Tarzipan !

Mum, Can I have a dog for Christmas ? No you can have turkey like everyone else !

What did the eskimos sing when they got there Christmas dinner ? "Whalemeat again, don't
know where, don't know when " !

What did the big cracker say to the little cracker ?My pop is bigger than yours !

Who is never hungry at Christmas ?The turkey - he's always stuffed !

What bird has wings but cannot fly ? Roast turkey !

Whats the best thing to put into a Christmas cake ?Your teeth !

We had grandma for Christmas dinner ?Really, we had turkey !

Whats happens if you eat the Christmas decorations ?You get tinsel-itus !

What do vampires put on their turkey at Christmas ? Grave-y !
