snow

Monday, November 18, 2013

We have a feral cat that hangs around as he was starving and the wife started to feed him I spent a lot of my spare time (what's THAT) last week trying to build him a shelter as its gotten cold this week. I feel really sorry for him- its criminal that people have pets and then just dispose of them. Sorry I really need to update the cat wall part of my photos as the daughter got 4 kittens since Sam died and they have all grown up.

    I feel sorry for feral cats too and stray dogs. Their life expectancy is really short.

The Final Inspection

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

THE FINAL INSPECTION

The soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

'Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you ?
Have you always turned the other cheek ?
To My Church have you been true?'

The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
'No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

'Step forward now, you soldier,
You've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell.'

    Ugh. I hate snow. I hate colds. They are predicting a bad winter here so I am trying to get on top of it and get ready. I'm starting to stress out from it. LOL. I hope you feel better soon.

groaner

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well, they decided to get married.

One broom was, of course, the bride broom, the other the groom broom.

The bride broom looked very beautiful in her white dress.

The groom broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo.

The wedding was lovely.

After the wedding, at the wedding dinner, the bride-broom leaned over and said to the groom-broom,
'I think I am going to have a little broom!'

'IMPOSSIBLE !' said the groom broom.



Are you ready for this? Brace yourself; this is going to

Hurt!!!!!!

'WE HAVEN'T EVEN SWEPT TOGETHER!'



... Laugh, or at least groan.

Life's too short not to enjoy.
