It's Very Good to be back

Hello everyone I have really missed you all. Thank you Peter for updating everyone
as to where I was at.
It was great to have some welcoming comments to greet me when I came back on line.
Just as very quick post today as I want to try visit and comment as many friends as I can.
Cheers Margaret





The Seamstress

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?"

The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.

The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with pearls.

"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked, The seamstress replied, "No."

The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a silver thimble ringed with sapphires.

"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked. Again, the seamstress replied, "No."

The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble. "Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.

The seamstress replied, "Yes."

The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water.

When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, "Why are you crying?"

"Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!"

The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney.

"Is this your husband?" the Lord asked.

"Yes," cried the seamstress.

The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!"

The seamstress replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord it is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said 'no' to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said 'yes,'
you would have given me all three. Lord, I'm not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said 'yes' to George Clooney.

And so the Lord let her keep him.

The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others.

That's our story, and we're sticking to it.

Hi Margaret, it's good that you are back in person, not that it was any trouble to do the moving post, but your readers would rather hear from you direct.
Heres to a trouble free re-entry to the blog world.

Hi Margaret, it is nice to have you back. I hope your move went ok.
Thanks for the feedback last night. My pictures are back now, I redid the whole thing.
Did you catch anything from the kissing?
I don't know how much back reading you did, but I fell in Ireland. Monday the ortho surgeon will repair my broken kneecap, today was the first day of therapy for the finger.

Hi Margaret

I have tried to leave you a comment a couple of time but this silly thing wouldn't let me. Never mind.

I am so glad that your move went well and that you are back to blogging. I missed you.

Take care and hugs xx

Please accept a rather belated "welcome back" form me. I have not been a very good reader of everyone lately. In fact, I didn't even realize you had been off line until today.

As punishment, I choose the wet noodles and you name the number of lashes.
