Moms

Hellooo--Hello !!
Thought that you moms,,, teachers,,,and others,, would like this !!! Smile !!! j.g.
WHY GOD MADE MOMS

Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:



Why did God make mothers?

1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.



2. Mostly to clean the house.



3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.



How did God make mothers?

1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.



2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.



3. God made my Mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts. What ingredients are mothers made of ?



1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.



2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think. Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?



1. We're related.



2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's moms like me. What kind of little girl was your mom?



1. My Mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.



2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy



3. They say she used to be nice.


What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?

1. His last name.

2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?



3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores? Why did your mom marry your dad?

1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my Mom eats a lot.

2. She got too old to do anything else with him.



3. My grandma says that Mom didn't have her thinking cap on. Who's the boss at your house? 1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.



2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.



3. I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.



What's the difference between moms & dads?

1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.

2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them

3. Dads are taller & stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.

4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.



What does your mom do in her spare time?

1 Mothers don't do spare time.

2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.



What would it take to make your mom perfect?

1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.

2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.



If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?

1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.

2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me. 3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.



WHEN YOU STOP LAUGHING -- SEND IT ON TO OTHER MOTHERS, GRANDMOTHERS, AUNTS and anyone else who has anything to do with kids or just needs a good
laugh!!!

Thanks John G.

Simple Life

Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are. You only need two tools:WD-40 and Duct Tape.If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Thanks Sandy R.
I have both

Nice Thought from a friend

Thanks Millie McG

Gareau Pic Spurs Memories

Hi Marty, Normand's pics of the Gareau family siblings reminded me that they lived on the northwest corner of Murray and Churchill in a two-storey house. The Gareau's lived downstairs and the Rogan family ,son Ronnie,daughter Bonnie and father Tom,a diminutive man who was one of the most active proponents of a soccer program in GFPK in he early fifties,lived in the upper part of the house. Father Tom was the coach of the Davidge Engineers sponsored soccer team that I played on in those days with Charley Menary,Keith Hollingdrake,George Wade "Scotty Walker" ,Ron Rogan,Bob Morley,Jim Small. Dennis Hollingdrake,Fred Vyse and Ron Jones and some ohers I can't remember. I also can't remember Mrs Rogan's name. JMcC

Thanks John McC.

A Life Lesson



Who was?

1. President of the largest steel company?

2. President of the largest gas company?

3. President of the New York Stock Exchange?

4. Greatest wheat speculator?

5. President of the Bank of International Settlement?

6. Great Bear of Wall Street?



These men
were considered
some of the worlds most successful
of their days.

Now,
80 years later,
the history book asks us,
if we know
what ultimately became of them.


The Answers:

1. The president of the largest steel company.
Charles Schwab,
died a pauper.

2. The president of the largest gas company,
Edward Hopson,
went insane.

3. The president of the NYSE,
Richard Whitney,
was released from prison
to die at home.

4. The greatest wheat speculator,
Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.

5. The president
of the Bank of International Settlement, and
shot himself.

6. The Great Bear of Wall Street,
Cosabee Livermore,
also committed suicide.

However:
in that same year,
1923,
the PGA Champion
and the winner of
the most important golf tournament,
the US Open,
was Gene Sarazen.
What became of him?

He played golf until he was 92,
died in 1999 at the age of 95.
He was financially secure
at the time of his death.

The Moral:
Screw work.
Play golf.

Ivan's Victoria Secret Shop



Ivan runs a franchise operation in lady's delicates I believe.
This would appear to be one of his European outlets, possibly Holland.
You would have to check this out with him. Cheeky business for sure and always the danger of going in the hole. I admire his panache.

Perhaps at our age we might consider targeting an older demographic group.
Some of these old gals are well heeled.
Regards, E.B.



Thanks Ed.

I'm sure Ivan will get back to us. He probably needs help..

Hey Millie McG. We have a new Bird Watcher

As I basically have very little interest with birds in general,
ironically I came home from the golf course earlier in the spring and remarked to Millie that I had seen some really beautiful birds that day. I described them and told her how unique they were.
Now they show up on the blog. Unreal.
My bird vocabulary must be up to at least 20 birds now.... thanks...
Ralph



Thanks Ralph B.
Your email almost made me fall out of my chair laughing, not because of the content because what you meant by it

Morning Funny

A LAUGH A DAY ... keeps us amused ... and smiling takes fewer muscles than frowning...


LIFE AFTER DEATH: "DO YOU BELIEVE IN LIFE AFTER DEATH?" THE BOSS ASKED ONE OF HIS EMPLOYEES. "YES, SIR," THE NEW EMPLOYEE REPLIED. "WELL, THEN, THAT MAKES EVERYTHING JUST FINE," THE BOSS WENT ON. "AFTER YOU LEFT EARLY YESTERDAY TO GO TO YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S FUNERAL, SHE STOPPED IN TO SEE YOU!



PALM SUNDAY: IT WAS PALM SUNDAY AND, BECAUSE OF A SORE THROAT, FIVE-YEAR-OLD JOHNNY STAYED HOME FROM CHURCH WITH A SITTER. WHEN THE FAMILY RETURNED HOME, THEY WERE CARRYING SEVERAL PALM BRANCHES. THE BOY ASKED WHAT THEY WERE FOR. "PEOPLE HELD THEM OVER JESUS' HEAD AS HE WALKED BY." "WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT," THE BOY FUMED, "THE ONE SUNDAY I DON'T GO, HE SHOWS UP!"



CHILDREN'S SERMON: ONE EASTER SUNDAY MORNING AS THE MINISTER WAS PREACHING THE CHILDREN'S SERMON, HE REACHED INTO HIS BAG OF PROPS AND PULLED OUT AN EGG. HE POINTED AT THE EGG AND ASKED THE CHILDREN, "WHAT'S IN HERE?" "I KNOW!" A LITTLE BOY EXCLAIMED. "PANTYHOSE!! "



SUPPORT A FAMILY: THE PROSPECTIVE FATHER-IN-LAW ASKED, "YOUNG MAN, CAN YOU SUPPORT A FAMILY?" THE SURPRISED GROOM-TO-BE REPLIED, "WELL, NO. I WAS JUST PLANNING TO SUPPORT YOUR DAUGHTER. THE REST OF YOU WILL HAVE TO FEND FOR YOURSELVES."



FIRST TIME USHERS! : A LITTLE BOY IN CHURCH FOR THE FIRST TIME WATCHED AS THE USHERS PASSED AROUND THE OFFERING PLATES. WHEN THEY CAME NEAR HIS PEW, THE BOY SAID LOUDLY, "DON'T PAY FOR ME DADDY. I'M UNDER FIVE."



PRAYERS: THE SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER ASKED, "NOW, JOHNNY, TELL ME, DO YOU SAY PRAYERS BEFORE EATING?" "NO SIR," HE REPLIED, "WE DON'T HAVE TO, MY MOM IS A GOOD COOK!"



CLIMB THE WALLS: "OH, I SURE AM HAPPY TO SEE YOU," THE LITTLE BOY SAID TO HIS GRANDMOTHER ON HIS MOTHER'S SIDE. "NOW MAYBE DADDY WILL DO THE TRICK HE HAS BEEN PROMISING US." THE GRANDMOTHER WAS CURIOUS. "WHAT TRICK IS THAT?" SHE ASKED. "I HEARD HIM TELL MOMMY THAT HE WOULD CLIMB THE WALLS IF YOU CAME TO VISIT," THE LITTLE BOY ANSWERED.



THE MOOD RING: MY HUSBAND BOUGHT ME A MOOD RING THE OTHER DAY. WHEN I'M IN A GOOD MOOD IT TURNS GREEN. WHEN I'M IN A BAD MOOD, IT LEAVES A RED MARK ON HIS FOREHEAD. ..



THE WATER PISTOL: WHEN MY THREE-YEAR-OLD SON OPENED THE BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM HIS GRANDMOTHER, HE DISCOVERED A WATER PISTOL.. HE SQUEALED WITH DELIGHT AND HEADED FOR THE NEAREST SINK. I WAS NOT SO PLEASED. I TURNED TO MOM AND SAID, "I'M SURPRISED AT YOU. DON'T YOU REMEMBER HOW WE USED TO DRIVE YOU CRAZY WITH WATER GUNS?" MOM SMILED AND THEN REPLIED..... "I REMEMBER!!"



A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology courses. She started her class by saying, "Everyone who thinks they're stupid, stand up!" After a few seconds, Little Davie stood up. The teacher said, "Do you think you're stupid, Little Davie ?" "No, ma'am, but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself!" Little Davie watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face "Why do you do that, mommy?" he asked. "To make myself beautiful," said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue. "What's the matter?" asked Little Davie . "Giving up?"


GRANDMA'S AGE: LITTLE JOHNNY ASKED HIS GRANDMA HOW OLD SHE WAS. GRANDMA ANSWERED, "39 AND HOLDING." JOHNNY THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT, AND THEN SAID, "AND HOW OLD WOULD YOU BE IF YOU LET GO?"
