    A turtle is mugged by three snails.
    When asked by police to give a description of what happened, he replies, "I don't know, it all happened so fast!"

    A little turtle begins to climb a tree slowly. After long hours of effort, he reaches the top, jumps into the air waving his front legs, until he crashes heavily into the ground with a hard knock on his shell.

    After recovering his consciousness, he starts to climb the tree again, jumps again, and knocks the ground heavily again.

    The little turtle persisted again and again while a couple of birds sitting at the edge of a branch, watched the turtle with pain. Suddenly the female bird says to the male, "Dear, I think it's time to tell our little turtle he is adopted."

    One day a man was walking in the woods when he got lost. For two days he roamed around trying to find a way out. He had not eaten anything during this period and was famished. Over on a rock ledge he spotted a bald eagle, killed it and started to eat it.

    Surprisingly a couple of park rangers happen to find him at that moment and arrested him for killing an endangered species.

    At court, he plead innocent to the charges against him claiming that if he didn't eat the bald eagle he would have died from starvation.

    The judge ruled in his favor. In the judge's closing statement he asked the man, "I would like you to tell me something before I let you go. I have never eaten a bald eagle, nor ever plan on it. What did it taste like"?

    The man answered, "Well, it tasted like a cross between a whooping crane and a spotted owl".

    Snow White received a camera as a gift. She happily took pictures of the Dwarfs and their surroundings. When she finished her first batch she took the film to be developed. After a week or so she went to get the finished photos. The clerk said the photos were not back from the processor.

    Needless to say, she was disappointed and started to cry. The clerk, trying to console her, said,

    "Don't worry. Someday your prints will come".

    Here are some words of wisdom from Maharishi Fattibastard....

    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either, just f--- off and leave me alone.

    The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a flat tyre.

    The darkest hours come just before the dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbour's milk and newspaper, that's the time to do it.

    Sex is like air. It only becomes really important when you aren't getting any.

    Don't aspire to become irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

    Remember, no one is listening until you fart.

    Never forget that you are unique, like everyone else.

    Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

    If you think nobody cares whether you're dead or alive, try missing a couple of mortgage payments

    Before you judge someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you judge them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    If at first you don't succeed, avoid skydiving.

    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

    Have you ever lent someone $20 and never seen that person again? It was probably worth it.

    If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

    Some days we are the flies; some days we are the windscreen.

    Don't worry; it only seems kinky the first time.

    Good judgment comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgment.

    The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

    A closed mouth gathers no feet.

    There are two theories about how to win an argument with a woman. Neither one works.

    Generally speaking, you aren't learning much if your lips are moving.

    Never miss a good chance to shut up.

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

    When we are born we are naked, wet, hungry, and we get smacked on our arse. From there on in, life gets worse

    The most wasted day of all is one in which we have not laughed.

    An elephant and a crocodile were swimming in the jungle, when the elephant spots a turtle sunning himself on a rock. The elephant walks over to the turtle, picks him up in his trunk and hurls him far into the jungle.
    "What did you do that for?" asked the crocodile.
    The elephant answered, "That turtle was the one that bit me almost fifty years ago."
    The crocodile said, "And you remembered him after all these years? Boy, you sure do have a good memory."
    "Yep," says the elephant. "Turtle recall."

    A police officer in a small town stopped a motorist who was speeding down Main Street.

    "But officer", the man began, "I can explain"...

    "Quiet" snapped the officer! "I'm going to let you spend the night in jail until the chief gets back".

    "But, officer, I just wanted to say"...

    "And I said be quiet! You're going to jail"!

    A few hours later the officer looked in on his prisoner and said, "Lucky for you, the chief's at his daughter's wedding so he'll be in a good mood when he gets back".

    "Don't count on it", answered the guy in the cell. "I'm the groom".

    Re: April 18th

    Saturday evening greetings friends,

    Nice day here now we’re expecting 12 hrs of rain. Saved me from watering anyway, haha.
    Kept myself busy with indoor & outdoor projects, now I’m sitting.

    Cyn, I’m sure you’ll have a chance to amend the estate stuff, try not to worry
    I’m finding it hard to stay focused on any one project myself but i’m blaming it on the high pollen count. Some days I feel like a real nitwit.
    I will gladly share any of my plants with you so I hope things grow as planned.

    Pauly, how’s the allergens out your way this spring? I think I would be in even worse condition if it wasn’t for the mask wearing, honestly.
    I’m not anxious to jump into 100% openings either. I think i’m getting used to having my own space & may not be willing to give it up now.

    Mick, you accomplish so much in a day’s time you should give yourself a small break now & then. What would happen to you if you ran out of projects anyway? Haha
    My son does know his limitations & sitting quietly behind a desk is just not possible for him. He needs to be out & about & moving around ~ kind like you
    I’m sure he will settle into something that meets his needs, he always does. Good luck with the fuschia, I’ve never had much luck with them myself.
    I’ll have to remember your advice: Never miss a good chance to shut up!! LOL

    PQ, i’m guessing your laptop has met it’s end? Check in with me on Messenger so I know you’re OK. Hope your day was good!

    Hello to Det, must be busy

    Hello to Sam & Pie too.

    Have a nice night all.
    AF since 03/26/09
    NF since 05/19/09
    Success comes one day at a time

    Mae all -

    Misty morning here, but the moisture is good... easier to take than that wild storm a few days ago.

    Pauly, open 100%? That must be just Vegas... in North Tahoe, where I am heading for the festival, there are still distance requirements... I guess the Governor just is letting each county decide what to do... good luck, and stay safe. Thank you for the kind words.

    Mick, thanks for the jokes! I love the sound of your books... it's so great when there is a series of books to get through...

    PPQ, hoping you are okay...

    Lav, I understand your desire to keep life quiet after everything opens up... it has made many places much more peaceful. And I think generally everyone is healthier... we'll see what happens. Hope your geraniums are doing well!

    Det, here's sending you more good vibes - hope you are getting more work!

    Sam, Pie and all others, wishing you the best--
