One of the first pressies I remember receiving from my brother Nick was the single of "Matchstalk Men & Matchstalk Cats and Dogs" ... by Brian & Michael.  It was released in 1978 as a tribute to the artsit J. Lowry.

Sorry to have to admit it - but I still like the piece!



As to what my James song is ... "Picture in a Frame" .... beacause, yes, I have a few framed pictures of James around the house, so when I hear him sang that I o have to smile.

Want To Know Why I Pass On Some Of My Jokes etc ....

This explains why I forward jokes.
 
A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.

He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble... At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.

When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.  When he was close enough, he called out, 'Excuse me, where are we?'

'This is Heaven, sir,' the man answered.. 'Wow! Would you happen to have some water?' the man asked.

Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up. 'The man gestured, and the gate began to open.

'Can my friend,' gesturing toward his dog, 'come in, too?' the traveler asked.

'I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets.'

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.

After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.  As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.

'Excuse me!' he called to the man. 'Do you have any water?'

'Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in.'

'How about my friend here?' the traveler gestured to the dog.

 'There should be a bowl by the pump.'

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.

The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.

'What do you call this place?' the traveler asked.

'This is Heaven,' he answered.

'Well, that's confusing,' the traveler said. 'The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.'

'Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope.  That's hell.'

'Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?'

'No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.'


Soooo...


Sometimes, we wonder why friends keep forwarding jokes to us without writing a word....

Maybe this will explain.

When you are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, guess what you do? You forward jokes.

When you have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact, you forward jokes.

When you have something to say, but don't know what, and don't know how, you forward jokes.

Also to let you know that you are still remembered, you are still important, you are still loved, you are still cared for, guess what you get? A forwarded joke

So, next time if you get a joke, don't think that you've been sent just another forwarded joke, but that you've been thought of today and your friend on the other end of your computer wanted to send you a smile...


You are all welcome @ my water bowl anytime!

Just A Mini-Me Ramble

Well I had quite a good day - getting things done that I had been procrastinating about.

I de-frosted my freezer, so now I can see what I have in there ... and what I don't have!

I went for a walk - trying to get some exercise ... not as good as riding, but I have got to do something ... otherwise I shall start to look pregnant!
.... and, speaking of pregnant, I had a weird dream yesterday where I had given birth to a baby girl.  The whole story was one of those that were set in the present time ... and seemed to even have an explanation as to why I was a single (and happy) mum!

No luck on the job front, although I manage to find something to apply for most days - I said when I decided to do this, the right job is out there.  So by trying in ots of directions, then I shall end up where I should be.
.... and speaking of which, I do want to thank you for your love and support.

I did a bit more to my fic, which is slowly taking form - some time yet before it's ready to post, but at least I am positive about it.

And James Q&A is up - so that was fun ... especially as he said he would bring back school uniforms ... brilliant idea!

So, that seems to be my news ... unless you want to know about the 2 new bras I bought!!  (One came complete with pants ... so for the first time ever I have matching undies!)

Well, I shall put the computer onto defrag while I make a cuppa - Vampire Diaries are on soon, so must be ready for that.
