A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.
George Moore

Old Curse

An old man goes to the Wizard to ask him if he can remove a curse he has been living with for the last 40 years.

The Wizard says, "Maybe, but you will have to tell me the exact words that were used to put the curse on you."

The old man says without hesitation - "I now pronounce you man and wife.

A little boy and his grandfather are raking leaves in the yard. The little boy finds an earthworm trying to get back into its hole. He says, "Grandpa, I bet I can put that worm back in that hole." The grandfather replies, "I'll bet you five dollars you can't. It's too wiggly and limp to put back in that little hole."

The little boy runs into the house and comes back out with a can of hairspray. He sprays the worm until it is straight and stiff as a board. Then he puts the worm back into the hole.

The grandfather hands the little boy five dollars, grabs the hairspray, and runs into the house. Thirty minutes later the grandfather comes back out and hands the little boy another five dollars. The little boy says,

"Grandpa, you already gave me five dollars."

The grandfather replies, "I know. That's from your grandma "

An engineer, an accountant, a chemist and a bureaucrat were bragging about how smart their dogs are.
The engineer called to his dog, "T-square, do your stuff". The dog took out paper and pen, and drew a circle, a squareand a triangle. Everyone agreed he was smart.
The accountant called, "Sliderule, do your stuff". The pooch went to the kitchen, got a dozen cookies and made four stacks of three. Everyone was impressed.
The chemist called, "Beaker, do your stuff." The dog went to the fridge for a quart of milk, got a ten ounce glass and poured exactly eight ounces without spilling a drop. Everyone agreed that was great.
The bureaucrat called, "Coffee Break,do your stuff!". Coffee Break ate the cookies, drank the milk, chewed the paper, claimed he injured his mouth doing so, filed a grievance for unsafe working conditions, put in for workers' compensation and took extended sick leave.

Eight-year-old Nina brought her report card home from school. Her marks were good...mostly A's and a couple of B's.

However, her teacher had written across the bottom: "Nina is a smart little girl, but she has one fault. She talks too much in school. I have an idea I am going to try, which I think may break her of the habit."

Nina's dad signed her report card, putting a note on the back: "Please let me know if your idea works on Nina because I would like to try it out on her mother."

Reaching the end of a job interview, the human resources person asked a young engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

The engineer said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a five-week vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching your retirement fund to 50% of your salary, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?"

The young engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

The interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."

A little girl asked her mother, "How did the human race come about?"

The Mother answered, "God made Adam and Eve; they had children and, so all mankind was made."

A few days later, the little girl asked her father the same question. The father answered, "Many years ago there were monkeys, and we developed from them."

The confused girl returns to her mother and says, "Mom, how is it possible that you told me that the human race was created by God , and Papa says we developed from monkeys?"

The Mother answers, "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about the origin of my side of the family, and your father told you about his side."

Good morning everyboomie. wave

Are we ready for another one? Another cold one? Brrrrrr! shiver

The weather lady said that today will be the same as yesterday. I told her to kiss my ice.... winter

She gave me the cold shoulder. snicker

I'm not really here of course. I'm still in bed giving homage to John Lennon by giving peace a chance. sleep

I've gotta go to Walmart after I get up, and fill up a cart, and empty my wallet, then come back home, and fill my truck with stuff to take back to my new home.......again. razz

In the immortal words of Elvis, "That's crazy man." crazy

I've gotta go to bed. I'm starting to get a quiver in my upper lip.

Have a happy day everyone.


Elvis has left the diner. cool

Hello and have a terrific Tuesday Joe, Haroula, Cailyn, Gerry, Midge, Connie, Gail, Darlene and all who come in after me. wave

I'm off today, but I have to go get my Emissions test for my car. Too bad I couldn't have gone on a warmer day, but that's the way my days off fall, unfortunately. lol

All right, have to run. Hope everyone here has a fantastic day! winter

Terrific Tuesday ya'll wave

It's raining out there, and we'll take it. Need to get ground water built back up.

I'll be vacuuming and cooking the books today, followed by our Bible study tonight. Will have to come home and watch NCIS as it left us on quite a cliff hanger last week.

Other than that, I may do a lot of napping as I'm still waiting for the brain cells to register the fact that I'm vertical. wave

Hello everybody. wave

I had a day and I'm hoping that my night is a very long one, but I have a 3:30 wake up call, so I'm guessing that won't be the case. razz

I will work the next 3 days, and then I am off 5 days for getting moved. thumbsup

I have premiers for some of my favorite programs tonight, like Face Off which doesn't start untill 8:00, which is when I need to be in bed. Rats! smirk

It's a good thing I have DVR. bravo

Have a good evening everyone. thumbsup
