Well, we ate and ate and ate and ate...rested a bit...then ate some more. And a grand, good, great time was had by all. Today...the diet...sigh.

When I opened my email this morning I received four emails that I wanted to share with you. THANK YOU YORAM, ROSALINE, AND ITSY. Good to smile first thing in the morning, dontcha think?

The first was a photo of a motorcycle know the type, Hell's Angels. He had his helmet under one arm and was wearing a black, short sleeved T-shirt. The caption on the back, in Hebrew said:

Can't help it, I laughed like hell. In Hebrew it said: Im attah yechol likroh et zeh, siman sh h'pustemmah naflah. Even funnier in Hebrew, if you understand the language. Don't bother looking up pustemmah in your bible or Hebrew's slang and loosely translated is 'dumb broad'.

Here's one that made me nod my head:
‘Oof, I wish this lesson would be over,’ whispered one student to another.
‘I wish this day was finished,’ one secretary said to another.
‘When is this week going to end already?’ the worker asked himself.
‘I can’t wait for the month to end,’ the manager thought.
‘Let these three years pass quickly,’ the soldier wrote home.

Only an elderly couple, who were sitting on a bench looking
at the setting sun, turned to each other and said, ‘I wish
this moment would last forever.’

PUT THIS IN YOUR DATE BOOK! This is the only time this will ever happen
At three minutes and four seconds after 2 AM on the 6th of May this year, the time and date will be 02:03:04 05/06/07. This will not happen again before the year 2107.


Baby Boomer Blues
It was fun being a baby boomer... until now. Some of the artists
of the 60's are revising their hits with new lyrics, to accommodate
aging baby boomers.

They include:

Herman's Hermits--- Mrs.. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Walker.

Ringo Starr--- I Get By With a Little Help From Depends.

The Bee Gees--- How Can You Mend a Broken Hip.

Bobby Darin--- Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash.

Roberta Flack--- The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face.

J ohnny Nash--- I Can't See Clearly Now.

Paul Simon--- Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver

The Commodores--- Once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom.

Marvin Gaye--- Heard It Through the Grape Nuts.

Procol Harem--- A Whiter Shade of Hair.

Leo Sayer--- You Make Me Feel Like Napping.

The Temptations--- Papa's Got a Kidney Stone.

Abba--- Denture Queen.

Tony Orlando--- Knock 3 Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall.

Helen Reddy--- I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore.
Leslie Gore--- It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I Want To.

And my favorite:
Willie Nelson--- On the Commode Again

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.

Only if you're American. Otherwise it'll happen on the 5th of June. (Unless you're Japanese, in which case it happened about 2 years ago.)

Marallyn: thanks for making me laugh. :)
