Here's a "words of wisdom" vs. "laughter" post I found:

"Learn to appreciate what you have, before time makes you appreciate what you had."

So true.

Apparently my two year old grandson threw a perfectly good orange into the trash can the other day.

"Why did you do that?" asked his mother. "That is a perfectly good orange"

"It's got a belly button" he shrieked. "Won't eat fruit with belly buttons!"

the last time I saw my physiotherapist he said that he would see me again in two weeks and if the exercises have gone well he would like me to join a humerus fracture support group for physio. My husband asked if he didn't have a serious group I could join.   :P

There once was a man named Jack

Who couldn't lay flat on his back

He worked all night and all day

And tucked his savings away

For the sake of his spoiled rotten brat

My daughter was laughing when she told me she wanted to thank me for teaching my granddaughters to cook.  She said she

had lost track of time and burned the lunch meal.  The 6 year old granddaughter pipes ups and says " Don't worry mommy,

Grandma does it all the time!!!!  All you have to do is cut the bottom off and nobody will even notice it."  She also said, " if it sets

off the smoke detector, all you have to do is wave a plate under it, so it gets new air so it will shut off."   Yes, it looks like my work

is done...those 2 have mastered 15 minute meals, and fire and smoke safety 101!

Just had to share this one. No offence to anyone of Irish stock (I am too!)


THE IRISH CHRISTENING
 


Paddy's pregnant sister was in a terrible car accident and went into a
 deep coma.
 After nearly six months, she woke up and saw that she was no longer pregnant.
 Frantically she asked the doctor about her baby.
 The doctor replied, "You had twins, a boy and a girl. The babies are
 fine. However they were poorly at birth and had to be christened
 immediately, so your brother Paddy came in and named them."
 The woman thought to herself, "Oh suffering Jesus, no, not me brother.
 He's a clueless idiot
  Expecting the worst, she asked the doctor, "Well, what's my daughter's name?"
 "Denise," said the doctor.
 The new mother was somewhat relieved and thought to herself, 'Wow,
 that's a really beautiful name. I guess I was wrong about my brother,
 I really like Denise.'
 Then she asked, "What's the boy's name?">
 The doctor replied, "Denephew"

A "funny" for the day: ;D

88% of people who read this, will love it...

As a guitarist, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper?s cemetery in the back country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost.

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.

I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn?t know what else to do, so I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I?ve never played before for this homeless man.

And as I played ?Amazing Grace,? the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my guitar and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, ?I never seen nothin? like that before and I?ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.?

Apparently, I?m still lost?
