None of his classmates liked him because of his stupidity, especially his teacher, who was always yelling at him, "You’re driving me mad Sam."

One day, Sam’s mother came to school to check on how he was doing. The teacher told his mom honestly, that her son was simply a disaster, getting very low marks, and never had she seen such a dumb boy in her entire teaching career.

The mother was shocked at the feedback and withdrew her son from school and moved out of Sydney, relocating to Newcastle.

25 years later, the teacher was diagnosed with an incurable cardio disease. All the doctors strongly advised her to have heart surgery, which only one surgeon could perform.

Left with no other options, the teacher decided to have the operation, which was successful. When she opened her eyes after the surgery she saw a handsome doctor smiling down at her.

She wanted to thank him, but could not talk. Her face started to turn blue, she raised her hand, trying to tell him something, but eventually died.

The doctor was shocked and was trying to work out what went wrong, when he turned around and saw our friend Sam, working as a cleaner in the clinic, who had unplugged the oxygen equipment in order to connect his vacuum cleaner!


Oh, you didn't think Sam became a heart surgeon, did you?

The next time you see or read a headline bashing police for shooting someone with a "Toy" or "Replica" gun, remember this...

The Indianapolis Police Department confiscated a "Toy" water gun during an arrest, after they realized that the suspect had hidden a Mossberg 12GA shotgun inside it, and it was a fully functioning weapon disguised to fool police.

The threat is real, all day, every day.

Still want to come to work with us and show us how "Wrong" we're doing our jobs?!

People are constantly trying to find better ways to kill us, so come on!

It takes a special breed of human to become a Police Officer. We'd be happy to have the help...

No? I didn't think so.

Please, support your local police.

A woman alone walks into a party, looking for a date, and see's a man standing by himself, near the corner of the room. She wanders over to him, extends her hand...

"Hello," she coos. "I'm Carmen."

"That's a pretty name," he says. "Is it a family name?"

"Oh, no," she answers. "It's a name I gave to myself; you see, I like cars and men & I came up with 'Carmen.' What's your name?"

"Uh... Beer'n'golf!"

His 7-year old son has lost his first upper incisor this week. The boy woke-up to find a dollar under his pillow.

His wife was disturbed, "A whole dollar? What happened to giving out quarters?"

Last night, he lost his second front incisor. Again, the son found a dollar under his pillow.

His wife says, "Don't you think that's too much money to be giving for a tooth?"

"I don't know," the husband answers, "they looked like buck-teeth to me."

Last year, my friend set-up a new tree-stand in a new hunting spot, in an area of woods that he had never hunted before. This is what he saw just as he neared his tree..................... SURPRISE!

Dear Linda,
Enjoy every Sunday. It was made by God for us to relax and to rejoice on His greatness. For everything of earth He has made for us.
The entire world is our "Garden of Eden!" Enjoy and treat it kindly... reseed & plant trees.

Your friend,
Roger :D

WORDS & PHRASES OF THE PAST & PRESENT

Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when’s the last time anything was swell? Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.; of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and pedal pushers. Oh, my aching back. Kilroy was here, but he isn’t anymore.

Like Washington Irving’s Rip Van Winkle and Kurt Vonnegut’s Billy Pilgrim, we have become unstuck in time. We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, “I’ll be a monkey’s uncle!” or “This is a fine kettle of beans!” we discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed omnipresent as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.

Poof, poof, poof go the words of our youth, the words we’ve left behind. We blink, and they’re gone, evanesced from the landscape and word-scape of our perception, like Mickey Mouse wristwatches, hula hoops, skate keys, candy cigarettes, little wax bottles of colored sugar water and an organ grinder’s monkey.

Where have all those phrases gone? Long time passing. Where have all those phrases gone? Long time ago: Pshaw. The milkman did it. Think about the starving Armenians. Bigger than a bread box. Banned in Boston. The very idea! It’s your nickel. Don’t forget to pull the chain. Knee high to a grasshopper. Turn-of-the-century. Iron curtain.
Domino theory. Fail safe. Civil defense. Fiddle-sticks! Kid-didle-hopper! You look like the wreck of the Hesperus. Cooties. Going like sixty. I’ll see you in the funny papers. Don’t take any wooden nickels. Heavens to Murgatroyd! And awa-ay we go!

Oh, my stars and garters! It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter had liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff, this winking out of the words of our youth, these words that lodge in our heart’s deep core. But just as one never steps into the same river twice, one cannot step into the same language twice. Even as one enters, words are swept downstream into the past, forever making a different river.

We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeful times. For a child each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age. We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering there are words that once did not exist and there were words that once strutted their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more, except in our collective memory. It’s one of the greatest advantages of aging.

We can have archaic and eat it, too!

Badda Bing, Badda Boom!

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY, LINDA G!

A lady comes home from her doctor's appointment, grinning from ear to ear.

Her husband asks, "Why are you so happy?"

The wife says, "The doctor told me that for a 45-year old woman, I have the breasts of a 18-year old."

"Oh yeah?" quipped her husband, "What did he say about your 45-year old bum?"

She said, "Your name was never mentioned in the conversation."

Angels Explained by Children


I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold. --Elaine, age 5

Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it. --Vivvy, age 9

It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to Heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes. --Jodi, age 9

Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else. --Tony, age 7

My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science. --Vince, age 8

Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows! --Kate, age 6

Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead. --David, age 9

When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath again, somewhere there's a tornado. --Linda, age 10

Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter. --Alexa, age 6

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter. --Diana, age 8

All angels are girls, because they got to wear dresses and boys didn't go for it. --Jake, age 9

My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth. --Amy, age 9

Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it. -- John, age 8
