Well I have had a lovely weekend at Grafton, the Jacaranda Festival was well worth seeing. It actually poured rain the whole weekend, this did not detract from the good time we had. We were aware that the rain was much needed;
We were able to find a good position under an awning to watch the parade itself, which was great, many floats with many diverse themes, there was even a Wildlife Warrior Float with local schoolchildren aboard. There were vintage and veteran cars, I have always been keen about these.
We had a river cruise on the Clarence which was very enjoyable as well as some day trips to surrounding towns of interest. In actual fact we followed the Clarence (by bus) through these towns to the mouth of the river at Yamba.
Very lovely scenery I did not sleep as others on the bus chose to, I may have missed out on something.
I will post some pictures and post more, after I have returned from my two weeks holiday proper. Sad to say my new camera which I bought last year for my
I have time, only for a short post, I have been working everyday since I arrived home on Monday evening, time has been very limited indeed.
Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company.
One Day the dog dies and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked “ Father me dog is dead. Could you be saying a mass for the poor creature?”
Father Patrick replied, “ I’m afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Methodists down the lane and there’s no tellin’ what they believe. Maybe they’ll do something for the creature.”
Muldoon said, “I’ll be going right away Father. Do ya’ think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service.”
Father Patrick exclaimed, “Sweet Mary Mother of Jesus! Why didn’t ya tell me the dog was Catholic”.
A girl asks her boy friend to come over Friday night and have
Irreverent thoughts on marriage
To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the marriage cup,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it,
Whenever you’re right, shut up.
By all means marry: if you get a good wife you’ll
Be happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.
I never married because I have three pets at home that answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog that growls every morning, a parrot that swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home all hours of the night.
No man should have a secret from his wife
She invariably finds out.
A husband should tell his wife everything that
she is sure to find out, and before anyone else does.
Sir Thomas Robert Dewar
An archeologist is the best husband a woman can have;
The older she gets, the more interested he is in her.
Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own
Age—as your beauty fades, so will his eyesight.
Marriage is a great institution, but I’m not
Ready for an institution
When a man steals your wife, there is no better
Revenge than to let him keep her
