politician joke

 

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, “I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.”

The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a “thank you” card and a dozen roses waiting for him at the door.

Later, a cop came in for a haircut, and when he tried to pay his bill, the barber again replied, “I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.”

The cop left happy. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a “thank you” card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill , the barber again replied, “I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.”

The Congressman was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

thankfulI’ve been truly enjoying my thankfuls this past week … and plan on continuing that right on into this next week.:)

Summer is a wonderful time of year, and one of the things I love best about it is time spent with family members who return home (to New York) on vacation. My niece Alyssa is home from Arkansas with her husband Matthew and my 5-month-old Great Niece Lily. We shared some time together last weekend – and it was nothing short of marvelous.:)

weakWord Prompts! It’s one of the things I love best about the One Word Blog LinkUp. Every week, two new words are released … and I love all the directions that the new words cause my mind to go running off to.

This week’s words are Silly or Weak. I could have easily chosen either to write about – had plenty of ideas … but I’m happily going with Weak.

In my younger years, I used to be quite squeamish. I couldn’t handle the sight of blood – my own to be exact. I’d pass out if I cut myself and started bleeding – or at least I’d come darn close to doing it. I used to have to lay down. The same was true for shots and needles. I couldn’t handle them either. I was a wimp. Completely. I won’t deny it.

Thankfully, I outgrew my squeamishness. Following several surgeries in my early adult years (some of them major), I stopped being a complete wimp. I’m happy to say that I can now get a shot, have blood drawn, and accidentally cut myself (as long as it’s not too deep) without passing out or having to lay down.  :)

I also used to be overly-emotional at times. I couldn’t watch an episode of the The Waltons without tearing up. All that deep family love – always stirred me up to watch it on screen.

I’ve toughened up a bit over the years … but that doesn’t mean that my knees don’t sometimes still get weak over certain things.

cat joke

 

St. Peter is the receptionist at the entrance of Heaven. A cat shows up and St. Peter says, “I know you! You were a very nice cat on earth and didn’t cause any trouble, so I want to offer a gift to you of one special thing that you’ve always wanted.”

Cat: “Well, I did always long to own a nice satin pillow like my master had, so I could lie on it.”

St. Peter: “That’s easy. Granted. You shall have the satin pillow after you enter in through the pearly gates.”

Next, a group of mice appear. St. Peter greets them and says, “Ah, I remember you. You were such good mice on earth. You didn’t steal food from anyone’s house and never hurt other animals. Therefore, I want to grant you one special wish that you’ve always wanted.”

The Chief Mouse replies, “Well, we always watched the children playing and saw them roller skate, and it was beautiful, and it looked like so much fun. So can we each have a pair of roller skates, please?”

mouseSt. Peter replies, “Granted. You shall have your wish.”

On day two, St. Peter is making the rounds inside the Gates, and he sees the cat. “Well, Cat… Did you enjoy the satin pillow?”

Cat: “Oh, indeed I did. And say…that ‘Meals on Wheels’ thing was a nice touch, too!”
