Spring Has Sprung Friday

Good morning Friends. I just back from having breakfast with from golfing friends. I was invited to join this group a while back and I'm enjoying this group. These are the same guys that invite me to join them to golf. Jerry will be coming to play some pool this afternoon.
My friend Al and his wife Meilin will be out of the area for awhile so Jerry and my wife will be playing some pool in the process.


A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog’s duties. “They use him to keep crowds back,” said one child. “No,” said another. “He’s just for good luck.” A third child brought the argument to a close. “They use the dogs,” she said firmly, “to find the fire hydrants.”


A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. “We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods.” The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, “I sure wish I’d gotten to know you sooner!” 

What Is a Grandparent?

  • Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own.  They like other peoples.
  • A grandfather is a man and a grandmother is a lady.
  • Grandparents don't have to do anything except be there when we come to see them. They are so old they shouldn't play hard or run. It is good if they drive us to the shops and give us money.
  • When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.
  • They show us and talk to us about the colours of the flowers and also why we shouldn't step on "cracks."
  • They don't say, 'Hurry up.'
  • Usually grandmothers are fat but not too fat to tie your shoes.
  • They wear glasses and funny underwear. 
  • They can take their teeth and gums out.
  • They have to answer questions like 'Why isn't God married?' and 'How come dogs chase cats?'
  • When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't mind if we ask for the same story over again.
  • Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don't have television because they are the only grownups who like to spend time with us.
  • They know we should have snack time before bed time, and they say prayers with us and kiss us even when we've acted bad. 

Grandfather in The Ark? Classic funny short story - Grandfather ark story

My sister's eldest boy liked nothing better than to sit on his grandfather's knee and have stories read to him.  One day after a story about Noah's ark, and how Noah led pairs of animals to the safety of the ark. 
The little boy asked, 'Granddad, you are very old, were you in Noah's ark?' Gosh no', said Granddad.' In that case, how come you didn't drown when the flood came?'


Well that's about it for today my good friends. I hope that you'll have a beautiful Friday. I will.
