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?

A woman alone walks into a party, looking for a date. She 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."

A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a small box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.

For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the small box and took it to his wife’s bedside. She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents.

"When we were to be married," she said, "my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll."

The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two Precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two Times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with Happiness.

"Honey," he said, "that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?"

"Oh," she said, "that's what I made by selling the dolls."

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."

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold; the bird froze up and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it was. The dung was actually thawing him out. He laid there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.

A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him!

The moral of this story is:

Not everyone who drops dung on you is your enemy. Not everyone who gets you out of dung is your friend. And when you're in deep doo-doo, keep your mouth shut!


HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEK-END, BETSEY!

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!

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! --Jack, 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. -- Cynti, age 8

I was HOME SCHOOLED in many ways.

1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE:

3. My father taught me about TIME TRAVEL: "If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!"

4. My father taught me LOGIC: "Because I said so, that's why."

5. And my mother taught me MORE LOGIC: "If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going to the store with me."

6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT: "Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're ever in an accident."

7. My father taught me IRONY: "Keep crying, and I'll give you something to cry about."

9. My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM: "Just you look at that dirt on the back of your neck?"

10. My mother taught me about STAMINA: "You'll sit there until all that spinach is gone."

11. My mother taught me about WEATHER: "This room of yours looks like a tornado went through it."

12. My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY: "If I told you once, I've told you a million times, don't exaggerate!"

13. My father taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE: "I brought you into this world, and I can take you out..."

14. My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION:
"Stop picking your nose, and stop acting like your father!"

15. My mother taught me about ENVY: "There's millions of less fortunate children in this world who don't have wonderful parents like you do."

16. My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION: "Just wait... until we get home!"

17. My mother taught me about RECEIVING: "You are going to get it from your father when he gets home!"

18. My mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE: "If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they're going to get stuck that way."

19. My mother taught me ESP: "Put your sweater on; don't you think I know when you are cold?"

20. My father taught me HUMOR: "When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me!"

21. My mother taught me HOW TO BECOME AN ADULT:
"If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up."

22. My mother taught me GENETICS: "You're just like your father."

23. My mother taught me about my ROOTS: "Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?"

24. My mother taught me WISDOM: "When you get to be my age, you'll understand."

25. My father taught me about JUSTICE: "One day you'll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like you!"

A man wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table.

He sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotless, clean.

So is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table: 'Darling, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love you.' So he goes to the kitchen, and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper.

His son is also at the table, eating. He asks, "John, what happened last night?"

His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious, broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a big black eye when you stumbled into the door."

Confused, he asks, "So, why is everything in order, and so neat and clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?"

His son replies, "Oh, that! Mom dragged you into the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you said,

'Lady, leave me alone. I'm happily married!' "

A guy walks into the human resources department of a large company and hands the executive his application.

The executive begins to scan the sheet, and notices that the applicant has been fired from every job he's ever held.

"I must say," says the executive, "your work history is terrible. You’ve been fired from every job."

"Yes," says the man.

"Well," continues the executive, "there’s not much positive in that."

"Hey!" says the guy poking the application. "At least I’m not a quitter!"
