I went up to the “park bench “ this morning to enjoy the beautiful day, as well as my coffee. Queen came up and picked a few raspberries that are on the bushes for our cereal at breakfast time. Then she suggested we go for our walk before eating. It is a grand day for it. Perhaps I can avail myself of my “barber shop” this morning and then go for a morning swim. First I must help run the plow downstairs. We are expecting George and family this morning. Hopefully my refurbished computer will be coming back home!!I took some pictures of the flowers around the property yesterday. Here are some of them.
My readers seem to like the pictures so I add what I see as the day wears on. It is a lot of fun.
I asked Queen about cutting my hair and although she is very busy she agreed to do it. She said I had better you look as though someone stuck a candle in your head! I think that is a great comment. Ha!!!
I saw Fritz up there swimming when I entered the pool area. We got an e-mail informing us that he would be here to swim this morning. He stopped by and we all had lunch together.
<1:15 PM>George just phoned and they have arrived here in town for a stay. I got this from Tommy.
WE LOVE KIDS
NUDITY I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5 year old shout from the back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!"
MORE NUDITY A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, "What's the matter haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"
HONESTY My son Zachary, 4, came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me he'd dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. So I fished it out and threw it in the garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my bathroom and came out with my toothbrush. He held it up and said with a charming little smile, "We better throw this one out too then, 'cause it fell in the toilet a few days ago.
OPINIONS On the first day of school, a first grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents."
POLICE It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. "Is that a dog you got back there?" he asked. "It sure is," I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, "What'd he do?"
ELDERLY While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She as unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, "The tooth fairy will never believe this!"
DRESS-UP A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning."
DEATH While walking along the
front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that
made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates
found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed,
secured a small
box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always said: Glory be unto the Faaaather, and unto the Sonnn ......and into the hole he gooooes."
SCHOOL A little girl had just finished her first week of school. "I'm just wasting my time," she said to her mother. "I can't read, I can't write and they won't let me talk!"BIBLE A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. "Mama, look what I found", the boy called out." What have you got there, dear?" With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, "I think it's Adam's underwear!"

It is a
warm Sunday morning. The blood glucose is 139 and the weight 202 this
Queen is up now and I assume we will be heading for a walk shortly.
I got this from Russ Howell in Texas.WD-40, Good for more than just squeaks.
STICKY SITUATIONS: WD-40 removes stickers and adhesives from glass, plastic, countertops and containers. Use it to lubricate the tracks in sticking sliding windows to make them glide. Spray a little WD-40 to lubricate sticky drawers. It penetrates and loosens sticky knobs on adjustable chairs. Give your snow shovel a quick spray to combat sticky snow.
STUCK UP: Zipper
it with WD-40. A quick shot will help untangle jewelry chains and
hinges. Spray on glass objects that are stuck together to separate
breaking. Lubricate the stuck walking foot on your sewing machine. Use
bolts, lug nuts and hose ends that won't budge, to loosen tight Lego blocks and to make those window shades roll smoothly.
GRUNGY: Removes tar, doggie-doo and scuff marks from shoes. WD-40 cleans filthy guitar strings and removes the grime from the barbecue grill. You know that build-up on your favorite pair of scissors? Hit it with WD-40 to make them like new again. It removes the grime and scum from fiberglass showers like a dream. It removes the gunk from a plastic dish drainer and the sink's handheld spray nozzle, too. It cleans and protects brass and silver from tarnishing.
SQUEAKING BY: If it squeaks, WD-40's likely the solution. It keeps wicker chairs, kids' swings, rocking chairs, bedsprings and noisy hinges from squeaking. It will quiet your trash compactor, too. Use it to silence that squeaky weathervane, car strut mounts and windshield wipers.
PESTY: WD-40 keeps flies off cows and pigeons off balconies (they hate the smell). Spray WD-40 around flowerbeds to gently send cats away. Spray it along the bottom of chain-link fences that surround gardens to repel rabbits and rodents and on wire tomato plant cages to keep insects away. WD-40 removes dead insects from a car's front grill, radiator and windshield.
SCRATCH FEVER: WD-40 cleans, restores and camouflages scratches on ceramic and marble floors. It gives floors that "just-waxed" sheen without making them slippery. It hides small scratches on woodwork.
DRAIN THAT STAIN: WD-40 cleans piano keys, and removes Kool-Aid and tomato stains from carpets and fabrics. It takes lipstick from anything, makes those oil stains on the concrete driveway disappear and removes hair dye from your towels.
RUST: WD-40 will keep your fishing reels, lures and flies rust- and gunk-free. WD-40 removes and prevents rust on anything made of metal. It removes and prevents rust from forming in washing machines, on showerheads and on garden tools. You know those rust stains on your tub and shower? Those terra-cotta pots that oxidize? You know the routine: WD-40!I'm convinced. WD-40 is quite an amazing product. Available just about anywhere (even the grocery store!), I've moved my can of the stuff from the garage right into the house.
I was out in the garden with my camera and took these photographs of our flowers and fruits.
Tonight we had Tommy here for a spaghetti meal in God’s restaurant. As usual it was superb.
It is a much less humid day this morning with good sunshine and a much more comfortable air mass today. The weight is 202 and the blood glucose is 131 after our spaghetti meal last evening.
I was up in the ‘tent’ this morning admiring the marvelous day. My cup of 8 O’clock coffee tasted especially good this morning. Then I took a few more recyclables to the alley this morning and also got the car out. After that I took another cup of coffee and watered the plants. I often leave my cup on one of the fence posts and then wonder where I put it. Golly!!
The George Shiner Family
Two guys were
discussing popular family trends on sex, marriage, and values.
said, "I didn't sleep with my wife before we got married, did you?"
Leroy replied, "I'm not sure, what was her maiden name?"
A little boy
went up to his father and asked: "Dad, where did all of my intelligence
The father replied. "Well son, you must have got it from your mother, cause I still have mine"
" Mr. Clark, I have reviewed this case very carefully," the Divorce Court Judge said, "And I've decided to give your wife $775 a week,"
"That's very fair, your
honor," the husband said.
"And every now and then I'll try to send her a few bucks myself,"
A doctor examined a woman, took the husband aside, and said, "I don't like the looks of your wife at all."
"Me neither doc," said the husband. "But she's a great cook and really good with the kids."
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
The old man says without hesitation, "I now pronounce you man and wife."

A blonde calls
Delta Airlines and asks, "Can you tell me how long it'll take
from San Francisco to New York City?"
The agent replies,"Just a minute..."
"Thank you," the blonde says, and hangs up.
detectives were investigating the murder of Juan Gonzalez.
"How was he killed?" asked one detective.
"With a golf gun," the other detective replied.
"A golf gun?! What is a golf gun?"
"I don't know. But it sure made a hole in Juan."
of Martha Stewart continues. Her recipe for chicken
casserole is quite efficient. First you boil the chicken in water. And
then you dump the stock.
This guy has
been sitting in a bar all night, staring at a blonde wearing
tightest pants he's ever seen.
Finally his curiosity gets the best of him, so he walks over and asks, "How do you get into those pants?"
The young woman looks him over and replies, "Well, you could start by buying me a drink."

Moe:"Yeah. Until I married her I didn't believe in hell."
A man is
recovering from surgery when a nurse asks him how he is feeling?
"I'm O.K. but I didn't like the four-letter-word the doctor used in surgery," he answered.
"What did he say," asked the nurse.

It had been at least ten years and twenty pound since I had even considered buying a bathing suit, so I sought my husband's advice.
"What do you think?" I asked. "Should I get a bikini or an all-in-one?"
"Better get a bikini," he replied. "You'd never get it all in one."
_______________________________________________________________Grandpa was driving with his 9 year old granddaughter and beeped the horn by mistake.
Queen and I just finished watering the plants. Queen is still trimming overgrown weeds around the front of the house.
I was a bit perturbed and sent them the following E-mail.
I went to the swimming pool early. It was a wise move because it just began to thunder as I went back to my towel. Larry cleared the pool and we headed home. Now it appears to be getting louder.
Supper is over and it didn’t really amount to much of anything so far. We were able to eat in the bus stop and then enjoy dessert in the tent with no problems.I think I may have rid myself of the above nuisance program. It was suggested by the support group at Computerwise Web Page that I get the newest version of the Lavasoft program. So I un-installed the old one and downloaded the new one ran it, and so far I have not been plagued by it’s return. We shall see!!
