    look Lav!!!!!!!!

    20180818_112516 (1).jpg

    I dont think this sign was thought through!!!


    A woman telephoned St Mary’s Hospital and asked to speak to Ward E2 as she was enquiring as to the progress of one of the patient’s in that ward. She explained that she wanted to know if the patient was getting better, doing as expected or getting worse.

    A staff nurse answered the phone, "Hallo, Ward E2. What is the name of the patient and his room number?"
    "He is in bed 1, room 10, "came the reply, "And his name is Albert Brown."

    "Could you hold the line for a moment, "the nurse asked, "While I check his records. Ah, yes, Mr Brown is doing well: blood pressure OK, blood test results appear normal, he’s going to be taken off the heart monitor and if he continues to improve then Doctor Svoboda is going to send him home tomorrow at midday."

    "Oh, that’s super, amazing, I’m so pleased to hear the news; it really is fantastic, thank you so much."

    "You sound so glad,"replied the nurse, "You are so and enthusiastic you must be a close friend or a relative of Mr Brown."

    The man answered, "Not exactly, I’m Albert Brown in Ward E2, room 10, bed 1. Nobody in here ever tells me anything."

    While working as a radiology technician in a hospital emergency room, I took some X-rays of a trauma patient and took the results to the senior radiologist, who studied the multiple fractures of the femurs and pelvis.

    'What on earth happened to this patient?' he asked in astonishment.

    'He fell out of a tree,' according to the report.

    The radiologist wanted to know what the patient was doing up a tree.

    'I'm not sure, but his paperwork states he works for Mark's Expert Tree Pruning Service.'

    Gazing intently at the X-rays, the radiologist blinked and said, 'Cross out 'expert.'

    Two married buddies are out drinking one night when one turns to the other and says, “You know, I don’t know what else to do. Whenever I go home after we’ve been out drinking, I turn the headlights off before I get to the driveway. I shut off the engine and coast into the garage. I take my shoes off before I go into the house, I sneak up the stairs, I get undressed in the bathroom. I ease into bed and my wife STILL wakes up and yells at me for staying out so late!”

    His buddy looks at him and says, “Well, you’re obviously taking the wrong approach. I screech into the driveway, slam the door, storm up the steps, throw my shoes into the closet, jump into bed, slap her on the butt and say, ‘You as horny as I am?’ . . . and, she always acts like she’s sound asleep!”

    Yesterday my wife asked why I didn't do something useful with my time. She suggested I go down to the senior center and hang out with the guys. I did this and when I got home last night I told her that I had joined a parachute club.

    She said, "Are you nuts? You're 79 years old and you're going to start jumping out of aeroplanes again.?

    I proudly showed her that I even got a membership card. She said to me, "You idiot, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club; not a Parachute Club!"

    I'm in trouble again and don't know what to do! I signed up for five jumps a week!

    Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier.

    Did you hear about the 83-year-old woman who talked herself out of a speeding ticket; she told the young officer that she had to get there before she forgot where she was going?

    Makes perfectly good sense to me.....

    Refund from Taco Bell

    That's what the kid behind the counter at Taco Bell said to me. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and something that used to be a Jolly Rancher. Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Elmo hairdo said the hardest thing anyone has ever said to me.

    He said, "It's OK. I'll just give you the senior citizen discount."

    I turned to see who he was talking to and then heard the sound of change hitting the counter in front of me. "Only $4.68" he said cheerfully.

    I stood there stupefied. I am 56, not even 60 yet? A mere child! Senior citizen?

    I took my burrito and walked out to the truck wondering what was wrong with Elmo. Was he blind? As I sat in the truck, my blood began to boil. Old? Me?

    I'll show him, I thought. I opened the door and headed back inside. I strode to the counter, and there he was waiting with a smile.

    Before I could say a word, he held up something and jingled it in front of me, like I could be that easily distracted! What am I now? A toddler?

    "Dude! Can't get too far without your car keys, eh?" I stared with utter disdain at the keys. I began to rationalize in my mind.

    "Leaving keys behind hardly makes a man elderly! It could happen to anyone!"

    I turned and headed back to the truck. I slipped the key into the ignition, but it wouldn't turn. What now? I checked my keys and tried another. Still nothing.

    That's when I noticed the purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror. I had no purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror.

    Then, a few other objects came into focus. The car seat in the back seat. Happy Meal toys spread all over the floorboard. A partially eaten doughnut on the dashboard.

    Faster than you can say ginkgo biloba, I flew out of the alien vehicle.

    Moments later I was speeding out of the parking lot, relieved to finally be leaving this nightmarish stop in my life. That is when I felt it, deep in the bowels of my stomach: hunger! My stomach growled and churned, and I reached to grab my burrito, only it was nowhere to be found.

    I swung the truck around, gathered my courage, and strode back into the restaurant one final time. There Elmo stood, draped in youth and black nail polish. All I could think was, "What is the world coming to?"

    All I could say was, "Did I leave my food and drink in here"? At this point I was ready to ask a Boy Scout to help me back to my vehicle, and then go straight home and apply for Social Security benefits.

    Elmo had no clue. I walked back out to the truck, and suddenly a young lad came up and tugged on my jeans to get my attention. He was holding up a drink and a bag. His mother explained, "I think you left this in my truck by mistake."

    I took the food and drink from the little boy and sheepishly apologized.

    She offered these kind words: "It's OK. My grandfather does stuff like this all the time."

    All of this is to explain how I got a ticket doing 85 in a 40. Yes, I was racing some punk kid in a Toyota Prius. And no, I told the officer, I'm not too old to be driving this fast.

    As I walked in the front door, my wife met me halfway down the hall. I handed her a bag of cold food and a $300 speeding ticket. I promptly sat in my rocking chair and covered up my legs with a blankey.

    The good news was I had successfully found my way home.

    Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.

    Notice the larger type? That's for those of us who have trouble reading.

    Good evening friends,

    Just rain & more rain around these parts, ho hum.
    Thankful for no wildlife sightings today.

    SK, I know how hard it is to let your dog go but it really is the right thing to do
    You will miss Peggy for a long while I imagine. I walk by my fridge & stop at Maxie's picture hanging there & just say 'hello' She's been gone a year but I still miss her.
    I am grateful that your daughter stepped up to give you hand, that's not something you should have to face yourself.
    Please take care of you & remember we are all thinking of you.

    Mick, Jeeves just didn't like your decorating, ha ha! He felt the need to make the place his own
    The flower show pics are really nice & I would love to have that water garden. I would probably end up with wild dolphins in my yard, ha ha!

    Pauly, maybe Kell should go take a temp job somewhere instead of dealing with all that daily stress.
    Have fun with the boys today.

    Hello to Det, PQ, Pie (wherever you are) & anyone lurking.
    Have a nice night y'all.

    mick thank you for the lovely pm. i will cherish it.
    thanks to lav and pauly also.i plan to get a kitten, so Vivian and i took a taxi to petsmart. we chose a black one and a white siamese. I filled out the app and they wanted a copy of my lease for proof of pets allowed. viv was so disappointed close to tears, but i told her i would them tomorrow. i hope i can. she also told me her mother told her it wasn't a matter of when but which nursing home i would going to. viv told me she totally safe with me and said. so you fell, my mom fell to and broke her wrist too, i didn't know that and my physio is really helping my balance. when we were talking yesterday dd told me that their bathroom was being renovated but hated the tile b/c she forgot to tell the contractor to put it in sideways and he put it in vertical, hello that was a 3000 dollar mistake.

    she also told me her mother gave her a book on puberty that she found gross and said i'm only 9 yrs old!

    anyway.... i dreamed last night that i woke up and peggy was on the bed. i have acceptance and know i ended her suffering. have a good night.

    Top o the evening ABerooos across the fruity plain,

    SK, extra hugs for you dear one xxxxxxxx. I'm glad you have accepted the best choice under the circumstances.

    Mick, looks like it was a super fun show, thanks for the pix.

    we went up to Mt Charlston yesterday and at over 8K feet the cool weather was a blessing. so were the amazing views, trees, picnic and
    playing frisbee and taking pics with family... just the best.

    photography scene is a colorful here it seems. Prospective deal this morning turned out to be a woman in the porn industry looking for
    some work that I just couldn't quite bring myself to agree to. so the search continues. I may just get a part time outside sales job I can do from home
    to take some of the financial stress off while I get the rest of my crap together here.

    Pauly, my 'do' is something called a 'faux hawk' is that really a thing or am I the butt of some joke? The girls at rehab ensured me that my grey hair is
    cool so I won't dye it after all. Will check out the eggs in NW. I don't mind paying for such a better food product. speaking of food I made a huge pot of
    red beans and rice today which didn't match the weather too well but it's sure yummy.

    Pix lately have been of family, and while they are lovely I don't think posting them publicly is a great idea. Promise I'll get out and snap some landscapes etc
    very soon. Have some new photo gear slated for delivery tomorrow and I need to get used to it asap so I can incorporate that into my routine.

    Lav, at rehab when we were out on the deck a copperhead struck at the foot of one of my fellow students and bit the flipflops he was wearing. Not sure if I mentioned
    that. Pretty scary stuff.

    Ah yes, a lovely garlic-scented girl would be the one for me LOL. That would make for a mighty strange romantic poem I think...

    Went to an open-house at a new shop in town that sells microgreens and the supplies to make them. My uncle and I set up our first tray today so we should have broccoli and radish microgreens next weekend. They are super nutrient-packed and yummy. I tried cantaloupe microgreens today for the first time and damn if they don't taste just like the melon... fascinating and exotic food treat for sure. We'll start a tray of those as well as amaranth in a day or two.

    well, time to try and zzzzzzz more than 5 hours tonight if I can. darn insomnia.

    be well loves

    hiya Pauly ,how are you today then/ hope all is well with you..did Kell hear anything about the job?hope she does ,did you have a decent weekend?

    ssshhhh re wildlife sightings...we have got field mice burrowing in the garden ok not snakes but a pain in the butt anyway...The trouble with going to flower and garden shows ,as you well know is you come home with ahead full of ideas..I think my work this year is to make the raised beds in the greenhouse, and a bit of fencework ,etc ,do the borders ,kitchen worktop and year trim the raised beds back,get rid of the stones and turf the rest of the garden.New water feature ,keep the tree trunk base in and the stone at the back.ho hum ..Mr busy ..

    A young Scottish lad and lassie were sitting on a low stonewall, holding hands, and just gazing out over the loch.

    For several minutes they sat silently, then finally the girl looked at the boy and said, "A penny for your thoughts, Angus."

    "Well, uh, I was thinkin' perhaps it's aboot time for a wee kiss."

    The girl blushed, then leaned over and kissed him. Then he blushed. Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.

    After a while the girl spoke again. "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."

    "Well, uh, I was thinkin' perhaps its aboot time for a wee cuddle."

    The girl blushed, then leaned over and cuddled him. Then he blushed. Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.

    After a while the girl spoke again. "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."

    "Well, uh, I was thinkin' perhaps its aboot time you let me poot me hand on your leg."

    The girl blushed, then took his hand and put it on her leg. Then he blushed. Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.

    After a while the girl spoke again. "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."

    The young man knit his brow. "Well, now," he said, "my thoughts are a bit more serious this time."

    "Really?" said the girl in a whisper, filled with anticipation.

    "Aye," said the lad.

    The girl looked away in shyness, began to blush and bit her lip in anticipation of the ultimate request.

    Angus blurted out, "Din'na ye think it's aboot time ye paid me the first three pennies?"

    A nun is sitting with her Mother Superior chatting. "I used some horrible language this week and feel absolutely terrible about it" When did you use this awful language?" asks the elder.

    Well, I was golfing and hit an incredible drive that looked like it was going to go over 280 yards, but it struck a phone line that is hanging over the fairway and fell straight down to the ground after going only about 100 yards."

    "Is that when you swore?"

    "No, Mother," says the nun. "After that, a squirrel ran out of the bushes and grabbed my ball in its mouth and began to run away."

    "Is THAT when you swore?" asks the Mother Superior again.

    "Well, no." says the nun. "You see, as the squirrel was running,an eagle came down out of the sky, grabbed the squirrel in his talons and began to fly away!"

    "Is THAT when you swore?" asks the amazed elder nun ?

    "No, not yet. As the eagle carried the squirrel away in its claws,it flew near the green and the squirrel dropped my ball."

    "Did you swear THEN?" asked Mother Superior, becoming impatient.

    "No, because the ball fell on a big rock, bounced over the sand trap, rolled onto the green and stopped about six inches from the hole.

    The two nuns were silent for a moment...................

    Then Mother Superior sighed and said,

    "You missed the f**king putt, didn't you?

    Greetings Abbers,

    We finally have a rain free day here - geez! Even the sun showed up around 3 pm ha ha!

    SK, we have a rescue cat here, my son & daughter both have rescue cats too. They are happy to have homes & you don't have to go thru all that baby stuff.
    If your daughter wants to talk like that, just let her. She has no business planning your future. I think Viv, even at the age of 9 realizes that.
    Speaking of age 9, preparing girls for puberty is a touchy but vital subject. Girls are reaching puberty earlier & earlier, they need to be prepped. I'm happy to hear that your balance is improving, that's such a big deal

    Det, I was going to say let Mick come up with a poem & he did, ha ha!!!
    I am glad you are getting out & about & enjoying life the way we should.
    Photography & porn industry in one sentence = a big no no. You take your time & choose the better jobs, right? You are quite a talented guy & I'm sure you will find your way.
    Speaking of gray hair - my 9 year old grandson has been walking around for the past month with silver hair. He asked his mother to color his light brown hair silver & she did, LOL
    It looked totally ridiculous at first but I have grown to like it, go figure.

    Mick, when I saw your pic the first thing that came to mind was 'How much is that bunny in the window?', ha ha! She looks happy & calm just sitting there looking out
    No wildlife sightings here today, so far. Of course having my son's Golden here again this week helps I think.

    Pauly, I don't know about you but we are having allergy issues here made even worse with this chronic dampness I think. I can't wait for some cleaner, crisper fall air!

    We no sooner decided to go out for a bite to eat this evening when YB was called into service driving one of the Amish families. They have a young baby in a children's hospital in Delaware & have been there all day while the baby had surgery to correct a heart defect. Now they need a ride home & it's 35 miles each way during rush hour. We'll be lucky to eat before darkness settles in for the night, lol.
    Have a nice night everyone!

    Why must I prove that I am me to pay my bills over the phone? Do strangers
    call to pay my bills? And, if they do, why don't you let them?

    The location of your mailbox shows you how far away from your house you can
    be in a robe, before you start looking like a mental patient.

    My therapist said that my narcissism causes me to misread social situations.
    I'm pretty sure she was hitting on me.

    195 lbs. I've gained.

    I'm getting kind of tired always slowly raising my hand when someone asks,
    "Who does something like that?"

    I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters.. do they just
    give you a bra and say, "here fill this out"..?

    Four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon announced that this will be
    his final season of racing. You could tell it was time for him to retire
    during his last race when he had his blinker on the whole time.

    The speed in which a woman says "nothing" when asked "What's wrong?" is
    inversely proportional to the severity of the storm that's coming.

    Denny's has a slogan, 'If it's your birthday, the meal is on us.' .....If
    you're in Denny's and it's your birthday... your life sucks!

    If I make you breakfast in bed, a simple "Thank you" is all I need.....not
    all this, "how did you get in my house" business!

    The pharmacist asked me my birthday again today....Pretty sure she's going
    to get me something.

    On average, an American man will have sex two to three times a week; whereas
    a Japanese man will have sex only one or two times a year. ...This is
    upsetting news to me............ I had no idea I was Japanese.

    I can't understand why women are okay with JC Penny's older women's line of
    clothing line named, "Sag Harbor."

    I think it's pretty cool how Chinese people made a language entirely out of

    The rain was pouring and there was a big puddle in front of the pub just
    outside the Air Force Base. A ragged old Marine Aviator, was standing near
    the edge with a fishing rod, his line in the puddle.

    A curious young Air Force fighter pilot stopped and asked what he was doing.

    'Fishing,' the old guy simply said.

    'Poor old fool,' the Air Force officer thought and he invited the ragged old
    Marine Aviator into the pub for a drink.

    As he felt he should start some conversation while they were sipping their
    whiskey, the haughty fighter pilot asked, "And how many have you caught?'

    'You're the eighth,' the old Marine Aviator answered.

    Found on the Refrigerator One Morning

    My Dear Wife,

    You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 57 years old, can no longer satisfy.

    I am very happy with you, and I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel.

    Please don't be upset----I shall be home before midnight.

    When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining room table:

    My Dear Husband,

    I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my being 57 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 57 years old.

    As you know, I am a maths teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old.

    As a successful businessman who has an excellent knowledge of maths, you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small difference - 18 goes into 57 a lot more times than 57 goes into 18.

    Therefore, I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.

    A motorcyclist is blasting down a nice, curvy back road when a bird flys in front of him and is hit by the windshield. The rider looks back and sees the bird lying motionless in the road. Concerned, he goes back and sees that the bird is still breathing although it is knocked out.

    He carefully tucks it into his tank bag and rides home with it. At home he digs through a closet and finds an old bird cage that an ex-girlfriend had left behind.

    He puts the little bird in the cage and leaves to go buy some birdseed.

    While the rider is away the small bird comes to and realizing it is caged hangs down it's head and remarks:

    "****, I must've killed that biker!"
