At the ball field last Saturday evening...After a day of on and off rain...this is off the cell...
HECK-A-DOODLE...soon I will not be saying that - new camera coming and all!

I received two emails this week, both containing joke and I really liked them...and at the end of one of them was this statement:

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.
Also to let you know that you are still
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.

And I thought...hummmm...isn't that a nice thought. I have one e-mailer who blankets my email with every rumor, innuendo and joke that makes it's way into the internet.

Fortunately, he uses an email address I rarely use and I mass delete...and I am almost postive he does not know about tThe Couch!....


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.'

Remember that prayer "Lord, please let me be half the person my dog believes I am"!

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their Tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes The Lone Ranger and says, 'Kemo Sabe, look towards sky; what you see?'

The Lone Ranger replies, 'I see millions of stars.'

'What that tell you?' asked Tonto.

The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, 'Astronomically speaking, it Tells me there are millions of galaxies. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Meteorologically, it seems We will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Theologically, the Lord is all Powerful and we are small and insignificant.

What does it tell you, Tonto?'

'You dumber than buffalo. Someone stole tent.'

Thanks for the laugh baby

OK, so maybe you have seen them already, but without the jokes, my playing this great great oldie might not have as much impact! From the BEE GEES, before the break out of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack...when they were more Pop than bop...from their third album Idea, this song reached #6 here in the US in 1968. And as a bonus, from the soundtrack of the horrid movie ZOOLANDER (I know someone will tell me I am crazy and it is a classic),
version of the song..."I Started A Joke"
