Another Sunny Day

Good late morning. In fact it's exactly 11:59 right now. I was unable to write my blog this morning because I had to take my Camero to see a car doctor. It seems that a bolt in the driver's seat could shear and cause some problems if I was driving at that time some I have to bring it in next Tuesday at 9:30 to fix it. There are so many cars now that have to be fixed for this or that. Don't they make the cars correctly any more? 
Well tonight will be a change over from 2014 to 2015. For me, it's no difference tonight. It's going to be dinner, TV, some pool and seeing the ball falling and then sleep. ( maybe Ha,ha,ha. )
I hope that you'll all be doing well tonight. Be safe and enjoy what ever you'll be doing tonight.


News Year Eve Quote


News Years Eve Happiness

 A Dream
  Alice was taking an afternoon nap on New Year’s Eve before the festivities. After she woke up, she confided to Max, her husband, ‘I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond ring for a New Year’s present. What do you think it all means?’
‘Aha, you’ll know tonight,’ answered Max smiling broadly.
At midnight, as the New Year was chiming, Max approached Alice and handed her small package.  Delighted and excited she opened it quickly. There in her hand rested a book entitled: ‘The meaning of dreams’.

A New Year Prayer for the Elderly
God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
The good fortune to run into the ones that I do,
And the eyesight to tell the difference.


That's it for today, the last day of 2014. Have a great night Bee & Sandee. See ya

Sunny Tuesday ( 2 in a row )

Good morning you smiling people. Yes, I happy again this lovely morning. The sun is shining brightly for the second day. Can you belive it? My wife left the house at a very early time because she's babysitting today & tomorrow since our daughter works. That leaves me alone ( AmyLynn is here but she stays in her room most of the time and only leaves to eat and say hi. Our friends Al & Meilin have gone to Cambridge to have a party with his brother and family and my friend Gerry usually comes to play some pool today but he's been ill and I doubt he'll be here today so I'm by myself. Maybe I'll play some pool by myself. At least I'm pretty sude I'll win. Ha,ha,ha. Two more days and 2014 will be finished and 2015 will begin. I pray that this new year will bring us more positive things. As I said in Sandee's blog, I rarely do resolutions but is I did it would be I would promise to enjoy life to the fullest and continue with my friendships I've made. 


New Years Quote for the Day


Tuesday's Laughs

Morning Sex

She was standing in the kitchen, preparing our usual soft-boiled eggs and toast for breakfast, wearing only the 'T' shirt that she normally slept in.
As I walked in, almost awake, she turned to me and said softly, "You've got to make love to me this very moment!"
My eyes lit up and I thought, "I am either still dreaming or this is going to be my lucky day!" Not wanting to lose the moment, I embraced her and then gave it my all; right there on the kitchen table.
Afterwards she said, "Thanks," and returned to the stove, her T-shirt still around her neck.
Happy, but a little puzzled, I asked, "What was that all about?"
She explained, "The egg timer's broken."

Pregnant Woman
There was this little kid who had a bad habit of sucking his thumb. His mother finally told him that if he didn't stop sucking his thumb, he'd get fat.
Two weeks later, his mother had her friends over for a game of bridge. The boy points to an obviously pregnant woman and says, "Ah, ha! I know what you've been doing!"

Still Up In Bed
A little boy came down for breakfast one morning and asked his grandma, "Where's Mom and dad?" and she replied, "they're up in bed."
The little boy started to giggle and ate his breakfast and went out to play. Then he came back in for lunch and asked his grandma "where's Mom and Dad?" and she replied "they're still up in bed."
Again the little boy started to giggle and he ate his lunch and went out to play. Then the little boy came in for dinner and once again he asked his grandma "where's mom and dad?" and his grandmother replied "they're still up in bed."
The little boy started to laugh and his grandmother asked, "what gives? Every time I tell you they're still up in bed you start to laugh! what is going on here?" The little boy replied, "well last night daddy came into my bedroom and asked me for the Vaseline and I gave him super glue."


I have to go now. I'm making meatloaf for dinner and I usually like to create my masterpiece ahead of time so...... See ya.

Sun, Sun, Sun Finally

Isn't it wonderful that the sun is out and it looks fantastic. I feel alive this morning but I think I'll stay inside today because it's in the 20's and it's cold. I'll just stay in the front of the window and gaze upon this beautiful sun. I can still feel it's heat. 
Yesterday was Football Sunday and I was able to see 3 games and one of them was my Lions. Boy were they bad yesterday. They had a chance to win their division against Green Bay but alas, they didn't. Next week they play against Dallas, my daughter's team. It should be interesting around here next week. Ha,ha,ha.

Sunny Monday's Funnies

Fur Fortune

Mike and Bill are hanging out in the lone bar in a one-horse town in northern Idaho, when a local rancher walks in carrying a wolf pelt. "Good work!" says the bartender. He pops the cash register open, pulls out a wad of bills, and counts them out into the rancher's outstretched hand. After the rancher leaves, Mike asks the bartender, "What was that all about?" The barkeep says, "Haven't you boys heard? We got us a real wolf problem in these parts, and the county ain't done a thing about it. Why, just last week, a pack of the damn varmints came onto my property and laid waste t'my chicken coop. Ol' Man Miller down the road even lost four of his cattle to the bloodthirsty beasts! They're vicious, and they got no fear -- and they gotta be stopped. So I'm offerin' a bounty -- a hundred dollars to anybody who brings in a wolf pelt." Mike and Bill look at each other, and immediately race out of the bar to go hunt wolves. After wandering around the hills for several hours, they finally spot a lone wolf in the distance. Mike takes aim with his rifle and shoots the wolf dead. The two fellas sprint over to where the carcass lay, and Mike gets busy with the pelt. Suddenly, Bill says, "Hey, Mike, look." "Not now," says Mike, "I'm busy." Bill tugs on Mike's sleeve and says, "Mike, I think you really ought to see this." "Not now!" Mike says again. "Can't you see I've got a hundred dollars in my hands?" Bill's voice starts to waver. "Mike, please, just look!" Mike stops what he's doing and looks up: The two men are surrounded by a pack of wolves -- at least fifty in all, every one of them growling, drooling, gnashing their teeth, and licking their chops. Mike takes in the sight and gasps: "Oh, my God... We're gonna be rich!"

Farmer Joe and his Mule
Farmer Joe decided his injuries from his recent accident were serious enough to take the trucking company responsible for the accident to court. In court, the trucking company’s fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe.
“Didn’t you say, at the scene of the accident, that you were fine?”
“Well, I’ll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule Bessie into the–”
“I didn’t ask for any details,” the lawyer interrupted. “Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, that you were fine?”
“Well I had just got Bessie into the trailer and was driving down the road–”
“Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.” By this time the Judge was fairly interested in Farmer Joe’s answer and told the lawyer so.
“Well,” said the farmer, “as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into the trailer and was driving her down the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my truck right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was hurting real bad and didn’t want to move. However, I could hear ol’ Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after the accident a Highway Patrolman came on the scene. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes. Then the Patrolman came across the road with his gun in his hand and looked at me. He said, ‘Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her. How are you feeling?”


This sun is making me soooooooo good. I wish I had a pool like Bee. I'd go into it this morning, afternoon and evening and maybe even a midnight swim without my clothes on. Naw, I'll forget the morning one. Ha,ha,ha. Have a great day everyone. See ya.

Dull Sunday

I need some sun. I'm feeling like I'm in the doldrums, time all the time and not feeling well. I need the Caribbean and it's bright sunshine. 

Good morning everyone. As you can see, we haven't had sun for such a long time and it's driving me nuts. My doctor even gave me some little white pills to take because of it. Something about my blood and not having enough sun. I love the summer with its bright sunshine. This winter is depressing. I need my cruise. 

Last night we went to my granddaughter Emily's birthday. She turned 9. I can't believe it. I remember just seeing her in the hospital as a baby and now. WOW! We gave her boots and these things called chops ( I think that's how to spell them ) She is a horse rider and in the new year she'll be learning how to jump over barriers. You should see her ride on that horse. No fear just enjoyment. She also received gifts from the movie " Frozen " I told her that I want to borrow the film to see it. She said, " Oh grandpa, sure you can ". Even her birthday cake was decorated with " Frozen ". These kids. When I was a kid my mother gave me a chocolate cake and I was happy. Today this kids have to have a film on the cake. These children aren't spoiled aren't they? Ha,ha,ha.

Let's take a trip to Disney

Two blondes had driven across the country to see Disney World in Florida.

As they approached it and got onto the final stretch of highway, they saw a sign saying "Disney World Left!"

After thinking for a minute, the driver blonde said "Oh well!" and started driving back home.

Lecture Tour with A Difference

On New Year's Eve, Daniel was in no shape to drive, so he sensibly left his van in the car park and walked home.  As he was wobbling along, he was stopped by a policeman.  'What are you doing out here at four o'clock in the morning?' asked the police officer.
'I'm on my way to a lecture,' answered Roger.
'And who on earth, in their right mind, is going to give a lecture at this time on New Year's Eve?' enquired the constable sarcastically.
'My wife,' slurred Daniel grimly

NASA sends Blonde to space.

NASA sends a space shuttle up with two monkeys and a blonde on board. While the shuttle is taking off, the NASA command center calls the first monkey and asks, "Monkey #1, do you know your mission?"
The monkey replies, "ooah ooah!. Get the shuttle into orbit and launch the trillion dollar satellite. ooah ooah!"
Then NASA Control asks the second monkey, "Monkey #2, do you know your mission?"
The second monkey replies, "ooah ooah! Once Monkey #1 has completed the trillion dollar satellite launch, close hatch, and go back to Earth. Land shuttle. ooah ooah!"
Then NASA asks the blonde, "Blonde woman, do you know your mission?"
The blonde woman replies, "Ummmmmmm.... Oh yeah, I remember now. 'Feed the monkeys - and DON'T TOUCH A THING!"



Well that's about it for me today. Last night I talked to my wife about my blog. I said that I've been doing the same thing for the entire year and with the New Year approaching I might want to change a few things. I asked her what new things that I might like to try. So, when the new year arrives and if my blog is different, ask my wife about it. LOL See ya.

Saturday's Wonder

Even though we don't snow yet, I love a picture like this one. It reminds me of a movie called " Heidi " with Shirley Temple of her grandfather who lived in the mountains and eventually saved her from scrupulous people. I loved that movie.
I wonder how many people keep their Christmas trees and lights up after Christmas? At my house, we start taking things off New Years Day and by 5:00, all the Christmas decorations are packed in their boxes waiting until next year. It takes me a couple days to finally get use to it but then I'm raring to go and that means my cruise to the Caribbean. Whoopie!!!!!!!!!!!

On New Year's Eve, Ann stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready.

At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living.

As the clock struck - the bartender was almost crushed to death.

Starting a Diet

Two girlfriends were talking at a New Year's Eve party. The talk got around to what their resolutions would be.
"I'm going to start a diet to get rid of all of these extra pounds I put on over the holidays," Kim said.
"Good!" Katrina exclaimed. "I'm ready to start a diet too. We can be dieting buddies and help each other out. When I feel the urge to drive out and get a burger and fries, I'll call you first."
"Great!" Kim replied. "I'll ride with you."

Jemima was taking an afternoon nap on New Year's Eve before the festivities. After she woke up, she confided to Max, her husband, 'I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond ring for a New Year's present. What do you think it all means?'
'Aha, you'll know tonight,' answered Max smiling broadly.
At midnight, as the New Year was chiming, Max approached Jemima and handed her small package. Delighted and excited she opened it quickly. There in her hand rested a book entitled: 'The meaning of dreams'.
Between Christmas and New Years I find is a vacuum of boredom. I can't wait for New Years Eve because that tell me that cruising time is near. Right Bee? New Years Day the 1st, Bee's cruise the 3rd and Paul's cruise the 24th. All on January. I can't wait until 2015. Have a wonderful Saturday. See ya.

The Day After

Good morning everyone. Yesterday was a wonderful Christmas waking up finally to a beautiful sun 
( which didn't last to long ). After having cup of java we got to opening up our presents which we received from our grandchildren. My wife gave me a billiards clock to be placed on the wall where I play pool. It was a very thoughtful thing from her. Then it came time to begin getting ready to arrange dinner and what a dinner it was. Everyone settled down to a great feast and even today all I had for breakfast was my coffee because I'm still stuffed. Sorry to say I ate a little to much and now I have to begin in earnest to start getting rid of all that extra fat that is now on my frame. Four weeks from my cruise so better get really serious.

New Year's Eve party

The New Year's Eve party had turned into a regular marathon with numerous guests coming and going.
At one point, a man knocked on the door, was greeted heartily although no one knew who he was, and was led to the bar in the basement.
He sat there happily for a couple of hours before a strange light dawned on his face. "You know," he confided to his host: "I wasn't even invited to this party. I just came over to tell you that some of your guests' cars are blocking my driveway."
The guest continued: "My wife's been sitting out in the car waiting for me to get them moved."


That's it for now. I'm going to lunch with my son - in - law Joe. He's quite a man. Whenever I needed some assistance around my home he's there. For a guy that graduated out of high school, began working right after school, he's now part owner of a company that makes parts for cars and just about anything. I'd say that he's quite a smart man but even better, he's a great husband & father & son - in - law to me. At least I can take him out to lunch. 
Have a great Friday friends. See ya.

Christmas Eve

Good early morning friends. Excitment is in the air. Christmas is at near. Santa Claus will be seeing every little boy and girl and the birth of the Lord is upon us. You all must have some very special time that you can remember at Christmas. I remember receiving a Davy Crocket racoonskin cap and rifle. That's all that I wanted that year and Santa brought it to me. Those were the wonderful days.

Un-Holy Christmas Tale From the Inn At BethlehemSchool Nativity Joke - Christian Joke

Did you hear about the St Michael's Primary School nativity play?
Two children are dressed as Mary and Joseph, and they are on their way to the inn at Bethlehem.
Meanwhile on the other side of the stage, a lad in a shepherd's outfit is on a mobile phone.  He is calling the inn to make a reservation.

Father John and His Young Parishioner

It was the Sunday after Christmas at St Peter and Saint Paul's Church in Borden, Kent, England.  Father John was looking at the nativity scene prior to packing away the figures when he noticed the baby Jesus was missing from the scene.
Immediately, Father John turned towards the vicarage in order to call the police. But as he was about to do so, he saw little Harry with a red wagon, and in the wagon was the figure of the little infant, Jesus.
Father John walked up to Harry and said, 'Well, Harry, where did you get the little infant?'
Harry replied honestly, 'I took him from the church, Father John.'
'And why did you take him?'
With a sheepish smile, Harry said, 'Well, about a week before Christmas I prayed to little Lord Jesus. I told him if he would bring me a red wagon for Christmas, I would give him a ride around the block in it.'

A Tree for Christmas Happy Hanukkah

Admiring the Christmas trees displayed in his neighbour's windows, Nathan asks his father, 'Daddy, can we have a Hanukkah Tree?'
'What? No, of course not.' says his father.
'Why not?' asks Nathan again.
Bewildered, his father replies, 'Well, Nathan, because the last time we had dealings with a lighted bush we spent 40 years in the wilderness.'


Well, that's all I have for today. I have many things to do today so I'd better get to doing them. 
Bee & Sandee, you have kept up with my sillines and you are true friends. Thank you. Have a wonderful, healthy Christmas Day. See ya.

Beautiful Tuesday

Really, it's nor a beautiful day because it's dreary and raining but I'm feeling so great as if it's a beautiful day because my mother's estate is now completed. Yestrday I spent another day at the lawyer's office wrapping up the final materials and now that my siblings and I have agreed to her will, all that's left is that we all sign it and my mother can rest in peace finally. Thanks to the Lord. 
Tuesday and means pool with Gerry, coffee and goodies. Christmas is coming up quickly ( 2 day to go ) and means my cruise is also coming soon. All the gifts are finished. I finally was able to get my wife a gift that she wanted. Now it's just wrapping it up and place it under the tree. 


Christmas Quote of the Day


Today a found a beautiful story that I thought you would like to read.

My husband and I had been happily married (most of the time) for five years but hadn't been blessed with a baby.
I decided to do some serious praying and promised God that if he would give us a child, I would be a perfect mother, love it with all my heart and raise it with His word as my guide.
God answered my prayers and blessed us with a son. The next year God blessed us with another son. The following year, He blessed us with yet another son. The year after that we were blessed with a daughter.
My husband thought we'd been blessed right into poverty. We now had four children, and the oldest was only four years old.
I learned never to ask God for anything unless I meant it As a minister once told me, "If you pray for rain, make sure you carry an umbrella."
I began reading a few verses of the Bible to the children each day as they lay in their cribs.
I was off to a good start. God had entrusted me with four children and I didn't want to disappoint Him.
I tried to be patient the day the children smashed two dozen eggs on the kitchen floor searching
for baby chicks. I tried to be understanding...
When they started a hotel for homeless frogs in the spare bedroom, although it took me nearly two hours to catch all twenty-three frogs.

When my daughter poured ketchup all over herself and  rolled up in a blanket to see how it felt to be a hot dog, I tried to see the humor rather than the mess. In spite of changing over twenty-five thousand diapers, never eating a hot meal  and never sleeping for more than thirty minutes at a time, I still thank God daily for my children.
While I couldn't keep my promise  to be a perfect mother - I didn't even come close...I did keep my promise to raise them in the Word of God.
I knew I was missing the mark just a little when I told my daughter we were going to church to worship God, and she wanted to bring a bar of soap along to "wash up" Jesus, too.
Something was lost in the translation when I explained that God gave us everlasting life, and my son thought it was generous of God to give us his "last wife."
My proudest moment came during the children's Christmas pageant.
My daughter was playing Mary, two of my sons were shepherds and my youngest son was a wise man. This was their moment to shine.
My five-year-old shepherd had practiced his line, "We found the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes."
But he was nervous and said,  "The baby was wrapped in wrinkled clothes."
My four-year-old "Mary" said, "That's not 'wrinkled clothes,' silly. 
That's dirty, rotten clothes."

A wrestling match broke out between Mary and the shepherd and was stopped by an angel, who  bent her halo and lost her left wing.

I slouched a little lower in my seat when Mary dropped the doll representing Baby Jesus, and it bounced down the aisle crying,  "Mama-mama."
Mary grabbed the doll, wrapped it back up and held it tightly as the wise men arrived.
My other son stepped forward wearing a bathrobe and a paper crown, knelt at the manger and announced, "We are the three wise men, and we are bringing gifts of gold,  common sense and fur."
The congregation dissolved into laughter, and the pageant got a standing ovation.

"I've never enjoyed a Christmas program as much as this one," laughed the pastor, wiping tears from his eyes
"For the rest of my life, I'll never hear the Christmas story without thinking of gold, common sense  and fur."
"My children are my pride and my joy and my greatest blessing," I said as I dug through my purse for an aspirin.
Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.
Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.
Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.
Had no army, yet kings feared Him.
He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.
Feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL YOU and have a very Merry Christmas!


Christmas Tuesday's Funnies

Ever wonder how blondes remember their Passwords?

During a recent password audit, it was found that a blonde was using the following password:


When asked why such a big password, she said, "It had to be at least 8 characters long.


One day a blonde office worker comes out to the warehouse to walk around. As she is walking she looks up and sees a co-worker hanging upside down from an I-Beam in the ceiling.

She asks "What ARE you doing"?

The co-worker says "I need a few days off but the boss won't let me have them so I'm hanging upside down from this I-Beam acting crazy.

The boss will see me, think I need rest and send me home for a few days".

The blonde says "That won't work...uh comes the boss now, you're in for it".

The boss spots the blode looking up and sees the man hanging up there and asks him "Just WHAT do you think you are DOING?!!"

The man says (in a "crazy" voice) I'm a light bulb...I'm a light bulb"

The boss says "Buddy, you need some rest..take the rest of today and tomorrow off and get some sleep".

As he is climbing down he winks at the blonde showing her it worked.

The blonde thinks about this for a moment and starts to follow the man out the door.

The boss asks her "WHERE do you think YOU'RE going?"

The blonde says "I can't work in the dark".

Finished for today. Have a great day my great friends. I'm going to have one. See ya.
