Good Morning..Everyone....

Time to take my leave......


As in many homes on New Year's Day, Lesley and Mark, a happily
married couple, faced the annual conflict of which was more
important: the football match on television, or the New Year's lunch.
Hoping to keep the peace Mark ate lunch with the rest of the family,
and even lingered for some pleasant after-lunch chat before retiring
to the lounge to turn on the television.
Some minutes later, Lesley looked in to see how he was and
graciously even bought a cold beer for Mark.
She smiled, kissed him on the cheek and asked what the score was.
Mark told her it was half time and that the score was still 0-0
'See?' Lesley said happily, 'You didn't miss a thing.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Mint announced that a new fifty-cent
piece was being issued to honor two great American patriots.
On one side of the coin would be Teddy Roosevelt and on the other side,

the spokesman replied, "Now, when you toss a coin you can simply
call.... 'Ted's or Hale's'."

A woman rushes into the foyer of a large hotel and sprints up to
reception, she hammers on the bell.
 ?Yes,? says the receptionist irritably.
 ?Excuse me,? says the woman, ?but I?m in a frightful hurry,
could you check me out, please??
 The clerk stares at her, looks her up and down.
?Not bad,? he smiles, ?not bad at all.?

A school teacher injured his back and had to wear a plaster cast
around the upper part of his body.
It fit under his shirt and was not noticeable at all.
On the first day of the term, still with the cast under his shirt,
he found himself assigned to the toughest students in school.
Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the
window as wide as possible and then busied himself with desk work.
When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he took the desk stapler and
stapled the tie to his chest.
He had no trouble with discipline that term.

into the bedroom - only to find her husband sitting up in bed reading.
"Darn it woman!" he exclaimed. "Did you lose everything?"

A man really loved a woman, but he was just too shy to propose to her.
Now he was up in his years and neither of them had ever been married.

suggesting marriage much less living together.
 But one day, he became determined to ask her the question.
So he calls her on the phone, "June."
 "Yes, this is June."
"Will you marry me?"
"Of course I will! Who's this?"

A man and woman are at their 10 year reunion......
The man trying desperately to impress the woman says to the woman
"You know, when we were in high school, most of the other guys liked
all the pretty girls, but I always liked you"

Now this is a wise man.....
A co-worker returned after lunch carrying a dress from the
cleaners. "Pretty," said one of the guys. "Big date tonight?"
"I picked it up for a friend," she replied, adding, "Do you really
think I could fit in a tiny thing like this?"
Jerry smiled and said, "Do you really think I've lived this long
by answering questions like that?"

Patient: What's the bad news?
Doctor: I'm gonna have to amputate both your legs.
Patient: Oh my god! Well what's the good news?
Doctor: The lady in the next bed wants to buy your slippers...

A man rushed into the doctor's office and shouted,
"Doctor, I think I'm shrinking!!'
 The doctor calmly responded, "Now settle down.
You'll just have to be a little patient."

The Internet is so wonderful.
I started using it just a few years ago and since then, so many
incredible, beautiful things happened to me!
I got ripped, enlarged my wewe, bought cheap quality Viagra,
a new Rolex and met hordes of gorgeous young horny women from
around the neighborhood.
Now I have to pay for everything, but that's OK - just have to wait for
the call from my new Nigerian friends and collect my jackpot.
Boy, the internet is full of nice, honest wonderful people!
