Nothing deep in the Joke Dept. Today

Nothing too involved to get into today...just a quick update before the joke.
As mentioned in the last post, today was the pancake breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Except for Thursday, I was worried about the little details, big details and attendence numbers (it was our first time doing this type of thing) . Then came the big day.....

It was GREAT!

Over 30 kids had their pictures taken with the Claus(es?) and everyone had as many pancakes and sausages they wanted. We collected a wonderful amount of toys for disadvantaged children. What a heartwarming feeling.
And no, I did not sit on Santa's lap.

And double NO, we didn't get any citations from the local breakfast authorities..... LOL .





My friend emailed me this story....I enjoyed most of it...but the ending caught me by surprise.
What do YOU think about the ending???

A Good Investment

>>On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and
>>asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter.
>> In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed.
>> This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30
>>years, with him thinking
>> that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other
>>incidentals that she needed
>>>>Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband
>>in a very drunken state.
>> During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going
>>through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go.
>> It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he'd be able to find another
>>position that paid anywhere near

>> Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which

>>>> Faced with evidence of cash and investments worth over $3 million, her
>>husband was so a
>> stounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice and

>> "If I'd had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business!"


With cartoons like this, it's not a wonder that I don't like dentists!!!

Funny cartoon.

The dentist makes me nervous too. I can really dig into those chairs when the drill is whining.

Wow, bet it's a heavy duty chair!
My knuckles turn so white with my grip, that when I'm told to relax, I can't immediately do it..I'm frozen in place. Very embarassing.!

I wonder what percentage of America is afraid of a dentist??

Thanks, Jason, for being a fellow person with dentist-phobia..
