Happy New Year

I would like to thank all the kind caring blogger friends who have
given me so many wise words of comfort through my difficult Christmas.
I know that a lot of you have great sadness of your own at this time
my thoughts and prayers are with you.
The love and support that I have received from all my old and new friends have really helped in so many ways.

Thank you all once again.
I wish you one and all a very Happy New Year with many
Blessings along the way.

I spent Christmas day at Bribie Island with my eldest son and his family,as well as a very dear friend of theirs.
It was a very nice way to spend the day, nice to catch up with everyone
and sit back and be spoiled.
On the Wednesday I drove to Brisbane to see my other son
and his family, once again it was very good to catch up and have some
more family TLC. The children are always a delight.


A six-year-old boy told his father he wanted to marry the little girl across the street. The father, being modern and well-schooled in handling children, hid his smile behind his hand.

"That's a serious step," he said. "Have you thought it out completely?"

"Yes," his young son answered. "We can spend one week in my room and the next in hers. It's right across the street, so I can run home if I get scared of the dark."

"How about transportation?" the father asked.

"I have my wagon, and we both have our tricycles," the little boy answered. The boy had an answer to every question the father raised.

Finally, in exasperation, his dad asked, "What about babies? When you're married, you're liable to have babies, you know."

"We've thought about that, too," the little boy replied. "We're not going to have babies. Every time she lays an egg, I'm going to step on it!"

One winter morning a couple was listening to the radio over breakfast. They hear the announcer say, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today.

You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snow ploughs can get through." Norman's wife goes out and moves her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snow ploughs can get through." Norman's wife goes out and moves her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says "We are expecting 12 To 14 inches of snow today. You must park............"

Then the electric power goes out. Norman's wife is very upset, and with a worried look on her face she says, "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snow ploughs can get through?"

With the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, Norman says...........

How about leaving it in the garage this time!!!

Glad to hear that your holiday was with family, and that you had a good time. Family has that way of making things better.

May your new year be a prosperous one that is kinder to you.

Hey there, Margaret...this time of the year is a strange time...I've been flying low under the radar...I'm glad it's all just about over and things can get back to some semblance of normality! ;)

Saying that, I had a nice luncheon here today with a couple of good friends...and I'm going to see the evening through until the appearance of 2007. I wish you a very Happy New Year. :)
