Louise went into her bank to cash a cheque. She looked so hesitant that the cashier went to help her. 'Please sign the back of the cheque, 'the teller told her, 'as you'd sign a letter.
'Louise looked extremely grateful, scribbled on the cheque and passed it back to the cashier.
Signed on the back was: 'Yours affectionately, Louise.'
Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was on television with British TV host Anne Diamond when he used the word 'manyana'.
Diamond asked him to explain what it meant.
He said that the term means "maybe the job will be done tomorrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that. Perhaps next week, next month, next year. Who cares?"
The host turned to Irishman Shay Brennan who was also on the show and asked him if there was an equivalent term in Irish.
"No. In Ireland we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency," replied Brennan.

Good morning everyboomie.
Before I finish and post this diner, and forget it, I need someone to remind me to tell you about the unbelievably funny story that happened to me today.
SO, for me this is Friday, and my last workday before my three days off. Woo Hoo!!
I'm quivering in anticipation.
It's very annoying. I hope I can sleep tonight.
If not, I'll just sleep at work.
Does anyone want to hear a great joke?
I have to get up at 3:30.........or 3.3 in computer lingo, so I'm way past my bedtime.
I hope you all have a great day, and can remember it tomorrow.
You know how forgetful people can get as they get "up there" in age.
I'm so "up there"
, and can't remember how I got there.
Have a happy day everyone.
