A man went to a psychiatrist and said, "Doc, I think my brother's crazy. He claims he's a chicken."

The doctor said, "Why don't you have him committed?"

The man replied, "I would, but we need the eggs!"

HA ha HA

There was a church down in Texas that had a very big-busted organist. Her breasts were so huge that they bounced and jiggled while she played the organ. Unfortunately, she distracted the congregation considerably.
The very proper church ladies were appalled. They said something had to be done about this or they would have to get another organist.
One of the ladies approached her very discreetly and told her to mash up some green persimmons, and rub them on her breasts and maybe they would shrink in size but warned her to not eat any of the green persimmons though because they are so sour, the y will make your mouth pucker up and you won't
be able to talk properly for a while. She agreed to try it.
The following Sunday morning the minister got up on the pulpit and said.
"Dew to thircumsthanthis bewond my contwol we will not hath a thermon tewday".

Little big friut

Berry Good , its as big as my mouse ,almost.

This is an easy what is it

Grandma's Boyfriend

A 5-year-old boy went to visit his grandmother one day. Playing with his toys in her bedroom while grandma was dusting, he looked up and said, "Grandma, how come you don't have a boy friend now that Grandpa went to heaven?"

Grandma replied, "Honey, my TV is my boyfriend. I can sit in my bedroom and watch it all day long. The religious programs make me feel good and the comedies make me laugh. I'm happy with my TV as my boyfriend."

Grandma turned on the TV, and the reception was terrible. She started adjusting the knobs, trying to get the picture in focus. Frustrated, she started hitting the backside of the TV hoping to fix the problem.

The little boy heard the doorbell ring, so he hurried to open the door, and there stood Grandma's minister.

The minister said, "Hello, son, is your Grandma home?" The little boy replied, "Yeah, she's in the bedroom bangin' her boyfriend."

The minister fainted

I asked Doc to buy me eggs (the cheapest you can!! No name!) Instead he came back with bloody organic raised-by-a-hippy-feral carton of eggs, costing 4 times the price, and look at the size of the bloody thing, little tiny pigeon sized eggs. *hits head. It takes twice as many eggs to get a feed. I know he meant well, but still....

Fog this morning, and a hot day expected.

No More Pluto

Bye bye Pluto *sniff

Pluto was stripped of its status as a planet on Thursday when astronomers from around the world redefined it as a "dwarf planet", leaving just eight major planets in the solar system.

With one vote, toys and models of the solar system became instantly obsolete, forcing teachers and publishers to scramble to update textbooks and lessons used in classrooms for decades.

"Pluto is dead," Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology bluntly told reporters on a teleconference.

Discovered in 1930 by the American Clyde Tombaugh, Pluto has traditionally been considered the ninth planet, farthest from the sun in the solar system.

3 Frogs

Question: There were once three frogs on a log and one of them made a decision to jump in. How many were left? Answer: There are still three frogs on a log, he only made a decision, he took no action!

make sense to me

Dust If You Must

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better to paint a picture, or write a letter, bake a cake, or plant a seed. Ponder the difference between want and need. Dust if you must, but there is not much time, with rivers to swim and mountains to climb! Music to hear, and books to read friends to cherish and life to lead. Dust if you must, but the world's out there with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain, this day will not come round again. Dust if you must, but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not kind. And when you go, and go you must, You, yourself, will make more dust!

Curtains and Cows

The Great Curtains and Cows Debate is on again have your say here.

Theres a Bluebird

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that I never let out.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that I never let others hear.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that I never let sing but sometimes when everyones asleep i let it out to sing a song.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that I never let out.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that never sees the sun because I always put him away before it rises.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me and together we sleep each night as one.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that I hear cry at night because I wont let him out.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that I never let anyone see because they may find me.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that now sees the sun and sings but you'll never see him.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me that once was just as i am now, once was.

Theres a Bluebird deep inside me.

If a man has enough horse sense to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she will never turn into an old nag.

On anniversaries, the wise husband always forgets the past - but never the present.

Trouble in marriage often starts when a man gets so busy earnin' his salt that he forgets his sugar.

My neighbour

So I am cooking in the kitchen, basting the roast potatoes and dry baking some butternut pumpkin, as a token to fat-free cooking, *coughs.

Next door, there’s a sound, a strange sound, I can’t put my finger on it. Surely not the tree choppers, at THIS hour? Not the leaf-blower? Too soft. Finally, overcome by curiosity, I wander outside, to see my neighbour Cam mowing his small lawn.
It’s the sound of a lawn mower! Be stuffed!

We chat and he tells me that on the weekend he and his wife celebrated their 10th anniversary, and he did a PowerPoint show, and the 2 best photos of the night, were both ones that I had taken, of he and his kids, when they first moved in next door. Aw………It’s a story I do hear over and over, and either people are very kind, and I take great photos of people. hugs

What is it answer. A case of jaundice which the doctor thinks was caused by a drug interaction. Still lots of yellow, but IS getting better. An ultra sound showed some gall stones, but they are non obstructing, and no plans on removing it at this time. I'll keep everyone posted :)

She looks like a woman to me........Opps!

Beautiful jonquils, yum! *breathes deeply

French Onion soup with cheesy croutons for dinner, thankyou Ruby, just what we all need.

Doc stitches up his torn pants, whilst Ruby cooks up a storm! Woot!

Garlic on toast for Bears breakfast, I had to get my morning kisses in quickly before he turned too garlic-breath on me, lol

My Godmother Pat (left) and my mum, in 2004. RIP Patty, be at peace now.

Gary helping out in the kitchen

As many of you know, my next door neighbor Gary is a frequent dinner guest. He comes over, eats with us, we watch a movie, and then it is time for him to go home. He is a good guest, always remembering to take his dirty dishes to the sink, but yet manages to slide out the door about the same time as when kitchen cleanup starts :)

Well, this weekend Tandy was at the beach with one of her friends, so it was just a boys night out for Gary and me. I told him since Tandy was not here that he had to wash his dishes before he could go home. Gary is a good sport, and pitched right in to help out. Click on the title to see what a good job he did!

If Burt Rutan had designed the B-17

Mentally Stable

Bud and Barbara were both patients in a mental hospital.

One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Bud suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Barbara promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom, pulled Bud out and brought him to his room.

When the hospital director became aware of Barbara's heroic act,she immediately ordered that Barbara be discharged from the hospital because she now considered Barbara to be mentally stable.

She went to Barbara and said, "I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that you're being discharged because you responded so rationally to a crisis. By jumping in the pool to save the life of another patient, you displayed sound mindedness." The bad news is that Bud, the patient you ! saved, hung himself in his bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. Iam so sorry, but he's dead."

Barbara replied, "He didn't hang himself. I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?"


A girl came skipping home from school one day. "Mummy, Mummy," she yelled. "We were counting today, and all the other kids could only count to four, but I counted to 10. See? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10!" "Very good," said her mother. "Is it because I'm blonde, Mummy?" "Yes, it's because you're blonde," her mother replied.

The next day, the girl came skipping home from school. "Mummy, Mummy," she yelled, "we were saying the alphabet today, and all the other kids could only say it to D, but I said it to G. See? A, B, C, D, E, F, G!" "Very good," said her mother. "Is it because I'm blonde, Mummy?" Yes, pumpkin, it's because you're blonde."

The next day the girl came skipping home from school. "Mummy, Mummy," she yelled, "we were in gym class today, and when we showered, all the other girls had flat chests, but I have these!" And she lifted her tank top to reveal a pair of 36Cs. "Very good," said her embarrassed mother. "Is it because I'm blonde, Mummy?" "No... it's because you're 25."
