My mother told this one at our Mothers Day celebration. Now if you knew my mother, you would realize just how funny this is because my mother never tells jokes in the first place and well, this one is kind of funny was the second surprise to all of us. See what you think?
Little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened. Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00.
When the postal authorities received the letter to God, USA , they decided to send it to the President. The president was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00 bill. The president thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read:
Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for some reason you sent it through Washington D.C. and they took $95.00 in taxes. Next time please send it straight to me so they won’t take out all those taxes.
Craig was telling me that he is thinking about ordering some custom wood handles for the moog voyager rme that is is planning to give to Skip for his birthday. He told me that the handles will make it easier for Skip to move the synthesizer around, and having them made of wood will make the synthesizer more attractive too. I can understand the practicality of handles to make it easier to move it around, but how important it is to make it more attractive is questionable to me. But who am I to argue that point? There are lots of things that people think are great looking that I really don’t care about at all!
Easter is just a couple of days away and the eggs have disappeared from the grocery store. I always buy a dozen eggs when I do my regular grocery shopping, but I guess a whole lot of families with kids are buying extra eggs so they can color them with those fun Easter egg dye kits or have Easter egg hunts. There were not any regular or extra large eggs left in the refrigerator case at my nearby Food Lion. I’ve never seen that before.
When Jed asked me to bring his nice dress leather shoes home and clean and polish them for him, I thought he was joking. But he was very serious. He loves to have his shoes polished! He loves it when he travels and goes through a transportation terminal and finds a shoe-shine stall where he can sit down and have his shoes polished. He told me that his father taught him that well-polished shoes will make you feel good about how you look, and he believes that to this very day!
Well, Jed is a dear friend, and he offered to pay me to do it for him, so what the heck? Why not humor the guy, make him feel good about himself and earn a little extra cash while I’m at it. So he gave me his shoes and some Saphir Renovateur (never heard of that before!) to bring home with me to use while polishing his shoes. He told me to go online and read the The Hanger Project – How to use Saphir Renovateur article that explains the many different uses for it. It sounds like a very versatile product!
The last dinner party I had was for New Years. It was great because we had the southern traditional dinner of blackeyed peas (they’re supposed to represent pennies), ham (which is supposed to be for health) and greens (which are supposed to represent money). Not many people knew about those traditions so it was a lot of fun in that I got to share a bit of southern tradition with them.
The next dinner party I have I’m going to use some of the great dinner party ideas I found online. They give you menu suggestions and also decoration suggestions too. There are some great ideas on there.
