Test Run

Subject: It all makes sense now!

The first day, God created the dog and said:
'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes
in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty

The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten
years and I'll give you back the other ten?'

So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said
Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll
give you a twenty-year life span.'

The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty
long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog

And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said:
'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer
under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's
family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.'

The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for
sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?'

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created man and said
'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give
you twenty years.'

But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my
twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back,
and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?'

'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and
enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to
support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to
entertain thegrandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch
and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.There is no need to thank me for this valuable information.
I'm doing it as a public service.

Dear Margaret ~~ I do hope that the
new system works for you. It is awful not to be able to send/ receive e mails and to blog when you want to.
I have my fingers crossed for you, and it sure hasn't been an easy road for you. Stick with it, my friend,
You have been missed. Take care, Love, Merle.

Hi again Margaret ~~ I am so sorry that I have just posted this item that you posted. I thought it was one you sent me. No real harm done
I guess. Waiting to see more from you and that you are still working.
Sorry for my mistake. Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

I Margaret, it is good that you are up and running. I like your Test run.

Guess I have things mixed up a little. I'm barking at the grandkids as well. Maybe that's cause our front porch can't be used for sitting.
