    A student at an English university, by name of Donald MacDonald from the Isle of Skye, who was living in the hall of residence in his first year there. After he had been there for a month, his mother came to visit, no doubt carrying reinforcements of oatmeal.

    "And how do you find the English students, Donald?"
    she asked."Mother," he replied, "they're such terrible noisy people! The one on that side keeps banging his head against the wall, and won't stop. The one on the other side screams and screams and screams away into the night!"

    "Oh, Donald! How ever do you manage to put up with these awful noisy English neighbours?" "Mother, I do nothing, I just ignore them! I just stay here quietly playing my bagpipes!"


    A little old Jewish lady sold pretzels on a street corner for twenty-five cents each. Every day a young lawyer would leave his office building at lunch time, and as he passed her pretzel stand, he would leave her a quarter but never take a pretzel.

    This went on for more than five years. The two of them never spoke. One day, as the lawyer passed the old lady’s stand and left his quarter as usual, the pretzel woman spoke to him.

    "Sir, I appreciate your business. You are a good customer, but I have to tell you that the pretzel price has gone up to thirty-five cents."


    Bill and Marla decided that the only way to pull off a Sunday afternoon quickie with their ten-year-old son in the apartment was to send him out on the balcony and tell him to report on all the neighborhood activities.

    The boy began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation. "There's a car being towed from the parking lot," he said. "An ambulance just drove by." A few moments passed.

    "Looks like the Andersons have company," he called out. "Matt's riding a new bike, and the Coopers are having sex."

    Mom and Dad shot up in bed. "How do you know that?" the startled father asked.

    "Their kid is standing out on the balcony too," his son replied.


    A little girl was leading her dog through the park when an old man stopped her, saying, "That's sure a pretty dress you're wearing."

    The little girl smiled, "Thank you, Sir. My mama bought it for me.
    This is my dog Porky."

    The old man chuckled, "I'll bet a nickel I can guess why you called him that."

    She shook her head, "I'll bet you can't."

    He laughed, "You called him Porky because he's so fat."

    She shook her head. "No Sir, we call him that because he screws pigs."

    The Blind Pilots
    Passengers on a small plane are waiting for the flight to leave.

    They're getting a little impatient, but the airport staff assures them the pilots will be there soon, and the flight can take off.

    The entrance opens, two men dressed in Pilots' uniforms walk up the aisle.
    Both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide dog, and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.

    Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start up.

    The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming.

    The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport territory.

    As it begins to look as though the plane will plow into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin. At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.

    The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon all retreat into their magazines, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.

    In the cockpit, one blind pilot turns to the other and says, "You know, Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna die."


    A new young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to help the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand. He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript. So the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up. In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

    The head monk says, "We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son." So he goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscript is held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years.

    Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot. So, the young monk gets worried and goes downstairs to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing "We forgot the 'R', We forgot the
    'R'". His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably.

    The young monk asks the old abbot, "What's wrong, father?"

    With a choking voice, the old abbot replies, "The word is 'celebrate'."

    MAE ALL...

    What a difference a day makes. Had to thaw out the car to get the doors open this morning but the snow has stopped and it was quite mild out. Sun came out and it must have had some heat to it because a lot of melting going on at least on the streets and sidewalks. The parking lot at work is like a lake.

    Mick...glad the weather smartened up and you were able to pack up the van. Hope your irrigation works while you're away, although you're probably still going to get rain. In case you're off early, safe travels and have fun.

    Waves to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 17th April

    Greetings friends,

    Chilly but sunny & dry here. Had a nice lunch with my friends, needed the time to just chat
    Back to working on crafty stuff for the event on the 30th.

    Mick, I guess you do need to pack quite a bit for a 16 day trip. Either that or you would have to visit the launder mat on vacation, haha! Hope your irrigation system keeps up while you’re away. Can a neighbor possibly keep an eye on it for you while you’re away? I hope you two have a great trip!

    PQ, so sorry about all the snow, yuck. Just doesn’t seem right for this time of year.
    Sounds like you’re in good position now to make your quit smoking plan. Just like when we quit drinking there’s never a ‘perfect time’, just have to make the commitment. Keep telling yourself you will feel so much better when you quit & there’s NO such thing as having just one

    Cyn, hope you’re OK & getting some much deserved rest. Youhave to take care of you

    Pauly, Det & Sam, hello & hope you are well.

    OK, back to crafty stuff & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Mae all,
    I posted a long post yesterday on my phone, forgetting to copy it just in case, and sure enough, it disappeared.

    Mick, wishing you all well in your trip - looking forward to hearing about my homeland! PPQ, glad to hear about the warmer weather/thaw, hope it keeps going. Lav, hope all is well, glad to hear about your kids getting together. Sam, I hope all is going well with fences and weddings. Greetings to Pauly and Det. Hello to all else.
    I am going for a short road trip with my niece to help her get her rental cabin in Colorado ready for the season. An unexpected chance for just the 2 of us to be together... not sure if Ill be able to post, well see. Home Sunday night.
    May we be well -

    Re: 17th April

    Good evening friends,

    Cloudy today but a touch warmer so not bad.
    My older grandson has been sick with a stomach virus the past few day & finally got back to school today so I went & gave him a ride home.
    I made my first ever pierogie pizza today & it was GOOD
    Made the crust lower in salt & used dairy free cheese to suit my needs & we both loved it, yum. Can’t believe I’ve lived all these years &never heard of this pizza but I’ll be making it frequently now.

    Cyn, wishing you a safe trip, enjoy the time with your niece, sounds nice.

    Mick, wishing you a safe trip as well & hope you two have fun & nice weather.

    PQ, hope your snow is melting away quickly

    Hello to Sam, Pauly & Det.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...yes, I'll remember NOPE. I actually have an appointment next Thursday for smoking cessation so will see how that goes. It was a touch colder today with a Windchill but no snow. A lot of the snow has gone but some of the huge drifts are still around. There's still a lot in my complex but the sidewalks are bare. You'll have to share your perogy pizza recipe, it sounds good.

    Lav...you are brave to post on your phone sorry you lost the post though. Your road trip with your niece actually sounds relaxing. Hope you have a good time.

    Mick...I thought you were leaving today and was wondering why you were up at the train set. But it all makes sense now. See, having that rain earlier ensured nice weather now. I hope you and Julie have a great time.

    Shout out to Det, Sam and Pauly. Have a nice night all....PPQP

    Well we got hit with the good old snow again today. Although it was supposed to be scattered precipitation it quickly turned to huge wet heavy snow. Lasted a couple of hours and with the warmer temp everything turned to slush pretty quick. Oh well, it's the weekend so I don't care. LOL

    Mick...not till Sunday? Hope your weather lasts until you head out. Sounds like you're all ready to go.

    Shout out to the rest of us. Will check in later to catch up on other posts....PPQP

    Re: 17th April

    Greetings kids,

    Thank you, we had the nice day here
    Rode up into Lancaster county, the home of the hard-core Amish, haha. Bought chicken feed, stopped in one of their funky hardware stores, had lunch & all that.

    PQ, I will send melting thoughts your way, geez, sorry about the weather. It’s weird here but there’s no tulips or azaleas blooming yet here. Mother Nature has thumbed her nose at all of us I think.
    Hope your weekend is good Check out the recipe: https://nowcookthis.com/pagach-pierogi-pizza/
    I just warmed up the leftover pizza & it was still good, Lol

    Mick, I thought you were leaving today as well. Sounds like you are SUPER ready to roll! I hope everything turns out perfect for you two!

    Cyn, Pauly, Det & Sam, hello to all of you!

    Have a nice night all!
