Back To Work Day - 11/15/12 07:49 PM

"A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes."
Hugh Downs

A woman pregnant with her first child paid a visit to her obstetrician's office.

After the exam, she shyly said, "My husband wants me to ask you...," to which the doctor replies, "I know, I know," placing a reassuring hand on her shoulder. "I get asked that all the time. Sex is fine until late in the pregnancy."

"No, that's not it," the woman confessed. "He wants to know if I can still mow the lawn."

A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she stayed by his bedside every single day. When he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.

As she sat by him, he said, "You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side... You know what?"

"What dear?" She asked gently.

"I think you bring me bad luck."

Standing at the edge of the lake, a man saw a woman flailing about in the deep water. Unable to swim, the man screamed for help. A trout fisherman ran up.

The man said, "My wife is drowning and I can't swim. Please save her. I'll give you a hundred dollars." The fisherman dove into the water. In ten powerful strokes, he reached the woman, put his arm around her, and swam back to shore.

Depositing her at the feet of the man, the fisherman said, "Okay, where's my hundred dollars?"

The man said, "Look, when I saw her going down for the third time, I thought it was my wife. But this is my mother-in-law."

The fisherman reached into his pocket and said, "Just my luck. How much do I owe you?"

A female officer arrests a drunk. She warns him, "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be held against you."

The drunk replies, "Boobs."

According to a news report, a certain private school in Victoria,
BC recently was faced with a unique problem.

A number of grade 12 girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done.
She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

A really huge muscular guy with a bad stutter goes to a counter in a dept. store and asks -
"W-w-w-where`s the m-m-m-men`s dep-p-p-partment?"

The clerk behind the counter just looks at him and says nothing.

The man repeats himself: "W-w-w-where`s the m-m-m-men`s dep-p-p-partment?"
Again, the clerk doesn`t answer him.

The guy asks several more times: "W-w-w-where`s the m-m-m-men`s dep-p-p-partment?" And the clerk just seems to ignore him.
Finally, the guy is angry and storms off.

The customer who was waiting in line behind the guy asks the clerk, "why wouldn`t you answer that guy's question?"

The clerk answers, "D-d-d-do you th-th-th-think I w-w-w-want to get b-b-b-beat up?!!"

A neatly dressed salesman stopped a man in the street and asked -
"Sir, would you like to buy a a bottle of this mouthwash for $200.00?"

Aghast, the man said, "are you NUTS?, that's robbery!"

The salesman seemed hurt and then tries again -
"Sir, since you are a bit irate, I'll sell it to you for 1/2 price at $100.00?

Again, the man replies bluntly - "you must be crazy pal, now go away!"

The salesman then reaches into his briefcase and pulls out 2 brownies and begins munching away on one of them. He tells the irate guy -
"Sir, please share one of my brownies since I have annoyed you so much".

Unwrapping the brownie, the guy takes a bite; suddenly, the guys spits it out and says:
"HEY," he snarled, "this brownie tastes like it's full of onions!!!"

"It is," replied the salesman. "Wanna buy some mouthwash?"

John was a clerk in a small drugstore but he was not much of a salesman. He could never find the item the customer wanted.

Bob, the owner, had about enough and warned John that the next sale he missed would be his last.

Just then a man came in coughing and he ask John for their best cough syrup. Try as he might John could not find the cough syrup. Remembering Bob's warning he sold the man a box of Ex-Lax and told him to take it all at once.

The customer did as John said and then walked outside and leaned against a lamp post.

Bob had seen the whole thing and came over to ask John what had transpired.

"He wanted something for his cough but I couldn't find the cough syrup. I substituted Ex-Lax and told him to take it all at once" John explained.

"Ex-Lax won't cure a cough!" Bob shouted angrily.

"Sure it will" John said, pointing at the man leaning on the lamp post.
"Just look at him. He's afraid to cough!"

A man who isn't qualified keeps pestering this tailor about giving him a job selling suits. Finally, the owner tells him if he can sell this one green suit he will give him a job.

Another employee points out to owner that they have had that suit on the rack for four years, and that it is such an ugly, green suit that nobody would ever buy it.

The owner replies, "Yah, I know. That's my way of getting rid of that pest!"

Two hours later the new guy calls his boss for his next assignment.
The owner cannot believe it and heads down to the store to see how this fellow did it. Upon arrival he sees his new salesman bleeding, scratched, and his clothes torn in several places, but smiling.

"Congratulations, the job is yours! Nobody has come close to selling that old, ugly, green suit.
But tell me, what in the world happened to you?"

"Well, replied the salesman, the guy that bought the suit loved it... said it fit him great.
As far as my injuries go, he had this really sensitive seeing-eye dog!"

Good morning everyboomie. wave

I'm trying to get this posted while I still have some kind of a signal. yes

Remember that surprise I had for you? Here it comes...... happydance

Have a happy day everyone.

Hi y'all.

It is still evening and we have great news about Moxie. She has hyperthyroid and we will be putting her on medication tomorrow. All the rest of the blood tests came out good. Otherwise, she is a healthy 16 year old cat. We should start seeing some results in a couple of weeks. yay

Now, it is music time, a good book and a fire.

Nite all.

Good morning my friends

Nan: thanks kissy

Ana: what a great pic of the buck. That's soooo magic. I got your email this time. Will answer it today.

Bets: I'am so happy about the Moxie results. Give her a cuddle please.

Yesterday I had another fright: I was working on my computer and wanted to save a file on my USB stick (the one I use for every picture, every schooling video and every file regarding my ceramics) and suddenly the system said: "can't read the device". Badest luck of all: I didn't have a backup. Yes, you can call me every word that's forbidden on GB and you would be right mad thumbsdown oops help An IT friend of ours tried to recover the data, with no positive result. Today he is trying it again on another system and I pray and hope he can recover the data. Otherwise it would be disaster... How can an otherwise smart girl like me whistle do such a stupid thing and don't have a backup I don't understand. I know it's not the end of the world but...... >sigh<

Anyway, I wish you a happy day and pleeeeeease do backups!... and don't forget to smile....

Good morning friends.

Got a load of laundry in then took off to the vets to get Moxie's med. Back home and another load ow laundry. Susie is coming over today as she has the day off. We will do something together, then dinner.

Tomorrow, Vince is going to see his brother Greg. He has been off of fluids and food and on heavy doses of morphine. Don't think it will be too long now.

Just lost a neighbor from lung cancer on Wednesday. It was a blessing for her.

Sunday, we are going over to Dave and Carol's for dinner.

Hey, Thanksgiving is next Thursday. Can you believe it? Then guess what's after that. I'm not ready for it. Usually have all my shopping done by now. Hah!! not this year.

Well, I think I will go do some browsing on the net so will wish everyone a wonderful day.

Re: Back To Work Day - 11/16/12 01:13 PM

I am Zumba'd and fed and getting ready to run the dogs. It's a beautiful day out, sunny and 48 degrees. I have pounding head but hopefully will be able to walk it off.

Are we having fun yet? It's Friday!

Re: Back To Work Day - 11/16/12 01:53 PM

Hi again everyboomie wave

No result so far in trying to get back my data again from the stick frown makes me sick..

Hi Connie smile

Nan, yes it's an awful feeling. I'am feeling quite awfully dumb too... lol Hugs right back at you!

Hi skooooshi Darlene

Bets, that will be a sad visit of Vince'. I wish him much strength.

looney, you sound chipper. I pray you will be ok for the drive to the Thanksgiving Feast. Will it be a very long drive? Hugs!

Hey beautiful Ana kissy this kiss is meant on your pounding head, so that the pain vanishes while you are walking the dogs. You doing Zumba with a pounding head, or did the pounding arrive while Zumba? Take care sweetie!

Almost bedtime here. I'am saying good night and sleep....

Love from Evelyne

Re: Back To Work Day - 11/16/12 02:33 PM

Dogs have been run, saw 5 deer on our walk today but too fast for me to capture on film.

Evelyne, I hope they can get it fixed. You should use cloud storage to back up your computers. That way you can access it from both your houses anytime.
I do feel better now. I went to Zumba with a headache but came out with it four times worse. lol My fault.

be back...

Re: Back To Work Day - 11/16/12 03:26 PM

This girl is going sleep now...

see you tomorrow.

Re: Back To Work Day - 11/16/12 03:28 PM

Time to take Sassy out for a walk and then get ready and run the cab. After which I shall go and work the fish fry at the Moose.

Tomorrow I won't be here as I will be working the bake and craft sale at the Moose. What fun to see all the things people have made and to sell those goodies. lol

Have a wonderful afternoon and evening all.

Ana HUGS! Hope the head feels better soonest. It was like 12F when I walked early this morning and no deer. lol Been worried about my great-grandson as his father is doing some threatening. But the Band can keep them safe.

Night Evelyne sleep well!!

Bet HUGS to Vince and prayers for strength. That has to be hard.

I found Thursday, but couldn't find TGIF. rotfl

That's what I get when I break with tradition. lol

Hope you're all doing good this evening. yes

Ana I hope your headache is gone soon. kissy

My day was busy at work, and after work I put Pepper in the truck and went to Mom's.

Baby and I went head hunting and Baby had fun.

Then I loaded Pepper back in the truck, plus a fresh hot cherry pie that Mom baked for me, and came home. yay

Now almost time for bed so I'd better get busy........again. happydance

Re: Back To Work Day - 11/16/12 08:21 PM

I am feeling much better, I took my migraine meds and that helped immensely.

Joe, it always makes my day to hear you went out with Baby and Pepper. puppy
Mom is a doll to make you a cherry pie.

Midgie, I think you need to let it all out to the witch when you leave. Consider it a civic duty to tell her what a nasty person she is. You'd be doing her a favor.

SpaceQ, any weekend plans?

Nan, prayers that nothing bad happens. Have fun at the fish fry. I made corned beef for dinner. So yummy..

Haroula, sweet dreams.

Evelyne, often exercising gets rid of my headache. It can go either way. See you tomorrow!

Re: Back To Work Day - 11/16/12 09:22 PM

You're right Ana.I just might do that. I'm glad your migraine is better. I'm going to bed now. See you in the morning. Split shift tomorrow. Night all.

Night Midge sleep well.

Ana glad your head is better. Any new project yet??? I don't know the whole story and won't till tomorrow when I see my daughter. She just asked me for the Band. Jude is with another couple that is suppose to be adopting him. They are all safe for now. Thanks!! hearts

Joe glad you were able to do some hunting and visit with Baby awhile. Nice of your mom to make you a pie!!

Night Haroula sleep well.

Space hope you have a nice weekend!!
