"The pure impulse of dynamic creation is formless; and being formless, the creation it gives rise to can assume any and every form." --

A drunk man who smelled like beer sat down on a subway seat next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the man turned to the priest and asked, "Say, Father, what causes arthritis?"

"My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol and a contempt for your fellow man."

"Well, I'll be darned," the drunk muttered, returning to his paper.

The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized.

"I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?"

"I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does."

A man decides to take off early from work and go drinking. He stays until the bar closes at 2am, at which time he is extremely drunk. When he enters his house, he doesn't want to wake anyone, so he takes off his shoes and starts tip-toeing up the stairs. Half-way up the stairs, he falls over backwards and lands flat on his rear end. That wouldn't have been so bad, except that he had couple of empty pint bottles in his back pockets, and they broke, and the broken glass carved up his buttocks terribly. But, he was so drunk that he didn't know he was hurt.

A few minutes later, as he was undressing, he noticed blood, so he checked himself out in the mirror, and, sure enough, his behind was cut up something terrible. Well, he repaired the damage as best he could under the circumstances, and he went to bed.

The next morning, his head was hurting, and his rear was hurting, and he was hunkering under the covers trying to think up some good story, when his wife came into the bedroom.

"Well, you really tied one on last night," she said. "Where'd you go?"

"I worked late," he said, "and I stopped off for a couple of beers."

"A couple of beers? That's a laugh," she replied. "You got plastered last night. Where the heck did you go?"

"What makes you so sure I got drunk last night, anyway?"

"Well," she replied, "my first big clue was when I got up this morning and found a bunch of band-aids stuck to the mirror."

A man is in bed with his wife when there is a rat-a-tat-tat on the door. He rolls over and looks at his clock, and it's half past three in the morning. "I'm not getting out of bed at this time", he thinks, and rolls over. Then, a louder knock follows. "Aren't you going to answer that?" says his wife. So he drags himself out of bed, and goes downstairs. He opens the door and there is man standing at the door. It didn't take the homeowner long to realize the man was drunk.

"Hi there." slurs the stranger, "Can you give me a push??"

"No, get lost, it's half past three. I was in bed." says the man and slams the door.

He goes back up to bed and tells his wife what happened and she says:

"Dave, that wasn't very nice of you. Remember that night we broke down in the pouring rain on the way to pick the kids up from the baby-sitter and you had to knock on that man's house to get us started again? What would have happened if he'd told us to get lost??"

"But the guy was drunk." says the husband.

"It doesn't matter." says the wife. "He needs our help and it would be the Christian thing to help him."

So the husband out of bed again, gets dressed, and goes downstairs. He opens the door, and not being able to see the stranger anywhere he shouts:

"Hey, do you still want a push??" and he hears a voice cry out "Yeah please."

So, still being unable to see the stranger he shouts: "Where are you?"

And the stranger replies: "I'm over here, on your porch swing."

A man stumbles up to the only other patron in a bar and asks if he could buy him a drink.

"Why of course", comes the reply.

The first man then asks: "Where are you from?"

"I'm from Scotland", replies the second man.

The first man responds: "You don't say, I'm from Scotland too! Let's have another round to Scotland."

"Of Course", replies the second man.

Curious, the first man then asks: "Where in Scotland are you from?"

"Aberdeen", comes the reply.

"I can't believe it", says the first man. "I'm from Aberdeen too! Let's have another drink to Aberdeen."

"Of course", replies the second man.

Curiosity again strikes and the first man asks: "What school did you go to?"

"Saint Andrews", replies the second man. "I graduated in '62."

"This is unbelievable!", the first man says. "I went to Saint Andrews and graduated in '62, too!"

About that time in comes one of the regulars and sits down at the bar.

"What's been going on?", he asks the bartender

"Nothing much," replies the bartender. "The MacClyde twins are drunk again."

One night a man walks into a bar with a pig. The bartender says to the man, "That's a great looking pig, but why does he have a wooden leg?"

So the man says, "Let me tell you about this pig. He is one special pig. One night my house was on fire and he dragged me to safety. Saved my life."

The bartender says. "Well, that's great. But why does he have a wooden leg?"

The man says, "Let me tell you about this pig. He is one special pig. One time I was out sailing and the boat capsized. This pig swam me to safety. Saved my life."

The bartender says, "That's really terrific, but why the wooden leg?"

The man says, "Let me tell you about this pig. He is one special pig. Last week during an earthquake my house collapsed and my pig pulled me out. Saved my life."

And finally the bartender says,"Wow, that is one special pig. He saved you from a fire, an earthquake and from drowning. But why does he have a wooden leg?"

The man says, "When you have a pig this special you can't eat all of it at once."

Good morning everyboomie. 

Ham anyone?  grin

I kill me!  snicker

Once more I'm at death's door.

That means in a few minutes I'll be in bed, and dead to the world.  sleep

If I'm still like that in the morning just prop me up in the corner, put some cigars in one hand, and a cup in the other, and call me Kaw-Liga.  razz

If I'm still that way after 5:00, just lay me down and put coins over my eyes. 

You might check my pulse first. cool

Have a happy day everyone.  woot

Good morning y'all.

Started the day with a trip to Wally World. Nothing exciting.

It was 29 degrees when we got up this morning but has started to warm up already. Mid to upper 50's today. Me thinks me will play some more games today. Probably could think of something more constructive to do, but what the hay!! Games are more fun.

Stay safe all of you who are in that nasty weather.

L4L get better girl. Yesterday I made some crispy crunchy home made biscuits and if you were neighbor you'd have had some. I used half white and half whole wheat flour and they have flavor plus and crunchy to boot. It's King Arthur flour.

All you with inclement weather, get this -50's at night and 80's during day. Lovely weather here. Keep warm. And all on the east coast -may God bless you and the animals.

Amazon sent one of my games this AM goodgood. 2 to go. Still plodding through Doom 1. I never posted that a few days ago I -being most clumsy- deleted the whole game so had to start all over. that's OK, actually it's a relaxing game.

Cats are outdoors sleeping and sunning. What a life.

Happy thursday all

Re: Thursday - 11/08/12 06:37 PM

Day started out fine and went downhill. Gave indoorsie cat some Vienna sausage juice and he promptly threw up all over my living room rug. Then he got so upset he pooped on the other side of the living room. Sigh. I should know better.

Then I delivered the annual rent raise to my tenants. Took all of 30 seconds from mailbox to phone before the mom was on voicing her displeasure. Thank goodness I waited until the son from Los Angeles was gone or it would have been him at my door screaming at me. That happened a few years back and never again will I go through that. As it was she wanted to know if the other house next door was getting the same rate. I assured her he was. Really not her business, but I figured it might make her feel better.

I hate giving increases, but I had to explain the increases in taxes, insurance, utilities, etc. to her. Felt bad but no other way to keep going. I'm not even making a profit. Even with the increase, they are paying about 400 under the going rate for this area. I'll never get rich this way.

Still, I feel bad every time I have to do this. I'll either have to go broke or grown a tougher skin. duh

It's so dark out and it's not even 6 p.m. yet. Temp is down to 30 will a bit of a wind but that's mile compared to what many on the east coast are suffering through. Prayers that their lives will return to normal as soon as possible. And may they stay warm and safe.

Will wish all a good night and a bright morning.

Hope the weather clears up for you, Midge! I remember when fiance and I had to move in the rain. Not fun. At least you'll have a nice new place to enjoy when it's all over.

I'm off to bed as well. I have a very early morning tomorrow, though it's my own choice. I could go in later, but I want to get as much finished as I can before the customers start pouring in. yes

Good night, everyone. sleep
