If anyone finds some marbles lying around, they may very well belong to me. How’s that you wonder…, Well, everything was well when I got up shortly after 6:00 am yesterday. I called Margit (my sister) about 10:15 am because that’s when she gets home. Well, somewhere between 10:15 am and 1:00 pm, I forgot it was FRIDAY! If that weren’t bad enough, at 6:00 am this morning, I found out that one should leave jumping out of bed to the much younger generation. My “jump” wound up being a “swan dive” instead, and now I have very grumpy right knee that is making me hobble around.
I can’t remember who sent this to me: Life Really Does Happen In Numbers...
Four men were discussing coincidences at a bar. The first man said: "My wife was reading a Tale of Two Cities and she gave birth to twins." "That’s funny", the second man remarked. "My wife was reading The Three Musketeers and she gave birth to triplets" “My goodness,” the third man chimed in. “The same happened to me. My wife had quintuplets after reading The Five People You Meet in Heaven.” The fourth man shouted, now looking quite ill, "Good God, I have to rush home!" When asked what the problem was, he exclaimed, "When I left the house, my wife was reading Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves!!"
And I “found this one” while being parked in front of my computer, (moping about my sore right knee):
A champion jockey is about to enter an important race on a new horse. The horse's trainer meets him before the race and says. l
The jockey thinks the trainer is mad but promises to shout the command. The race begins and they approach the first hurdle. The jockey ignores the trainer's ridiculous advice and the horse crashes straight through the center of the jump.
They carry on and approach the second hurdle. The jockey, somewhat embarrassed, whispers "Aleeee ooop" in the horse's ear. The same thing happens - the horse crashes straight through the center of the jump.
At the third hurdle, the jockey thinks, "It's no good, I'll have to do it," and yells, "ALLLEEE OOOP!" really loudly. Sure enough, the horse sails over the jump with no problems. This continues for the rest of the race, but due to the earlier problems, the horse only finishes third.
The trainer is fuming and asks the jockey what went wrong. The jockey replies, "Nothing is wrong with me - it's this bloody horse. What is he - deaf or something?"
The trainer replies, "Deaf?? DEAF?? You idiot, he's not deaf - he's BLIND!"
And that is all for today. Don’t forget to visit http://www.cnyauctions.com to check what is coming up in auctions.
