Dogs Know –

Have you ever heard that a dog ‘knows’ when an earthquake is about to hit?

X.MA3.1351975942@aol.com

Have you ever heard that a dog can ‘sense’ when a tornado is stirring up, even 20 miles away?

X.MA4.1351975942@aol.com

Do you remember hearing that before the December tsunami struck Southeast Asia,

dogs started running frantically away from the seashore, at breakneck speed?

X.MA5.1351975942@aol.com

Do you know that dogs can detect cancer and other serious illnesses and danger of fire.

How do those dogs and cats get home from hundreds of miles away?

And you can’t tell me that dogs can’t sense a potentially terrible disaster well in advance.

Simply said, a dog just KNOWS when something isn’t right… when impending doom is upon us.

They’ll always try to warn us!

DUCKS IN HEAVEN!

 

 

DUCKS IN HEAVEN!

Three women die together in an accident

And go to heaven.
When they get there, St. Peter says,

‘We only have one rule here in heaven:

Don’t step on the ducks!’
So they enter heaven, and sure enough,

There are ducks all over the place.

It is almost impossible not to step on a duck,

And although they try their best to avoid them,

The first woman accidentally steps on one.
Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.

St. Peter chains them together and says,

‘Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to

Spend eternity chained to this ugly man!’

The next day,

The second woman steps accidentally on a duck

And along comes St. Peter,

Who doesn’t miss a thing?

With him is another extremely ugly man.

He chains them together

With the same admonishment as for the first woman.
The third woman has observed all this and,

Not wanting to be chained

For all eternity to an ugly man, is very,

VERY careful where she steps.
She manages to go months

Without stepping on any ducks,

then

One day St. Peter comes up to her

With the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on

….. Very tall, long eyelashes, muscular.

St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.
The happy woman says,

‘I wonder what I did to deserve being

Chained to you for all of eternity?’
The guy says,

‘I don’t know about you,

But I stepped on a Duck.

 

IF YOU CAN’T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER,YOU’VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM” 

Life’s tough.. it’s even tougher if you’re stupid

The talking centipede‏

The Talking Centipede
A single guy decided life would be more fun
if he had a pet.
So he went to the pet store
and told the owner
that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.
After some discussion,
he finally bought a talking centipede,
(100-legged bug),
which came in a little white box
to use for his house.
He took the box back home,
found a good spot for the box,
and decided he would start off
by taking his new pet
to church with him.
So he asked the centipede
in the box,
“Would you like to go
to church with me today?
We will have a good time.”
But there was no answer
from his new pet.
This bothered him a bit,
but he waited a few minutes
and then asked again,

“How about going
to church with me

and receive blessings?”
But again,
there was no answer
from his new friend and pet.
So he waited
a few minutes more,
thinking about the situation.
The guy decided
to invite the centipede
one last time.
This time he
put his face up against
the centipede’s house and shouted,
“Hey, in there!
Would you like to go

to
church with me
 
and learn about God?”
…..

YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS ……
This time, 
a little voice
came out of the box
,

“I heard you the first time!
I’m putting my shoes on!”

SENIOR DISCOUNTS (ages vary)

Keep this list and send a copy to your senior friends and relatives.

As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy’s recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount.  The girl at the register apologized and charged him less.  When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 get 10% off everything on the menu, every day.  Being of ‘that’ age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too.  This incident prompted me to do some research , and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age requirements.  I was actually surprised to see how many there are and how some of them start at the young age of 50.
This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family too.

For the Ladies

10 PIECES OF ADVICE TO BE PASSED ON TO YOUR MUM, YOUR DAUGHTERS OR GRANDDAUGHTERS, NIECES, AUNTS, GIRLFRIENDS, ETC.
1. Don’t imagine you can change a man – unless he’s in diapers.
2. What do you do if your boyfriend walks out? You shut the door.
3. If they put a man on the moon – they should be able to put them all up there.
4. Go for the younger man. You might as well, they never mature anyway.
5. Men are all the same – they just have different faces, so we can tell them apart.
6. Best way to get a man to do something is to suggest he is too old for it.
7. Love is blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener.
8. The children of Israel wandered around the desert for 40 years. Even in Biblical times, men wouldn’t ask for directions.
9. If he asks what sort of books you’re interested in, tell him cheque books.
10.. Remember a sense of humour does not mean that you tell him jokes, it means that you laugh at his.
