Later Alligator, Bye for Awhile Crocodile, See you soon

Well, I am answering a "call to duty", an extension of what Mother's Day is all about, even when our children are grown. Of course there are some great rewards, as I will be able to smooch and spoil my three would be sweetest if my Michael could have come along, though.
I will be heading today to south Georgia for six days, to help my oldest daughter as they finalize and move into their new home...fortunately, through Ria's great budgeting and saving skills, they are able to take advantage of today's buyer's market and finally get their own home, what a blessing.

A carpet layer had just finished installing carpet for a lady. He stepped out for a smoke, only to realize he'd lost his cigarettes. In the middle of the room, under the carpet, was a bump. ''No sense pulling up the entire floor for one pack of smokes,'' he said to himself. He proceeded to get out his hammer and flattened the hump. As he was cleaning up, the lady came in. ''Here,'' she said, handling him his pack of cigarettes. ''I found them in the hallway.'' ''Now,'' she said, ''if only I could find my cell phone.''.

Clean those restrooms

On her way home from a long trip, a blonde drove past a sign that said "CLEAN RESTROOMS 8 MILES."By the time she drove eight miles, she had cleaned 43 restrooms.

Get me an ambulance now

A man, after being hurt, calls 911 for help.
Man: Operator, operator, call me an ambulance!
Operator: Okay, sir, you're an ambulance!

I will sorely miss my wonderful blogger friends while I am gone. If possible, I will at least try to read and get online, but Ria only has the use of her mother-in-law's PC now, so time and opportunity will hinge on what I can do. Please know that, as always (hmmm...maybe I never mentioned this before?) that I will be praying for all of you as I do everyday.

So please remember to find your oases in your hearts and souls if I can't give you this little oasis here from the stresses and trials of this world. Prayer is a wonderful answer to all of this!!

A missing person

Recently, a distraught wife went to the local police station, along with her next-door neighbor, to report that her husband was missing. The policeman asked for a description of the missing man.The wife said, "He is 35 years old, 6-foot 4-inches, has dark eyes, dark wavy hair, an athletic build, weighs 185 pounds, is soft-spoken, and is good to the children."The next-door neighbor protested, "Your husband is 5-foot 8-inches, chubby, bald, has a big mouth, and is mean to your children."The wife replied, "Yes, but who wants HIM back?"
~~~Thank you Lord for the blessings of friends and family, even when we can't be close to them by word or touch.

  7. How fun! I did the same with my daughter when she moved from Maryland to NC. We did it all, the packing....garage sale, the whole thing...her hubby was already working there and living in an apt. until their home was built. It was quiet the job for the 2 of us..but so much fun...I was gone for a month and loved every minute of it! We laughed and giggled and stayed up all hours and some days didn't even get dressed! Nothing like a mother-daughter all grown bonding! Have fun! Don't get too worn out! we will miss your posts...hugs...

    As always, your post brought me many smiles. Thanks for being so faithful.

    As for my two blogs...I wish I could say I'm always on top of things! I've actually thought about adding another, but it would only drive me crazy trying to keep up with it all!
