I'm glad to hear you're off to a strong start --- well begun is half done. The skies do clear, and the sun does shine forth. Best to you.

Hope your back in the stream with the fish soon Bear.....

I saw this recently (changing to a US context)....
A driver is stuck in a traffic snarl in DC... Suddenly a man knocks on the car window. Driver rolls down his window and asks "What in the world is going on?". The man says "Terrorists have taken the president and leader of the opposition hostage. They are demanding $2 Millions dollars otherwise they will douse them with gas and set them alight.... We are going car to car taking up a collection". Driver asks "How much are people giving on average?". Man responds - "Most people are giving 2 gallons".

Two older gentlemen are playing golf on their regular Sunday outing, when one of them notices a funeral procession on the nearby highway. He takes off his cap and stands silently until the entire procession drives by.

His golf buddy is very impressed. "Wow, I never realized you had so much respect for the dead."

To which he replies, "Well, we were married for 40 years. It's the least I can do."

Couple genuine old clunkers there :-)

I've voted on all The "Get Well" entries, but totally lack the energy to comment in any manner other than superficially right now, So NO comments from me at this point, basically. I do hop[e that will change, because I greatly appreciate all the effort, all the good wishes, all the good cheer. It's meant a lot to me. Tonight IO got set up with some home oxygen, so I hopefully can start waking up refreshed and upbeat...

Love ya all, R

* I secretly replaced Bear's oxygen with nitrous oxide. This should be fun. *

Hey, Bear! Glad to see you're up and about, if groggy. Nice to see you've been kept in stitches while I was gone...

I forgot about this one ...
The Emperor of Japan was determined to find the best samurai in the land, to add to his his personal bodyguard corp. Court officials scoured the land, and finally the field was narrowed down to three competitors, who were brought to the palace for a final test before the Emperor himself.

In the large hall lined with courtiers, three small jars were placed before the throne, and the first swordsman brought forward. Upon a hand signal, the first jar was uncapped and a mosquito flew out. Without hesitation the samurai whipped his sword through the air and the mosquito fell to the floor, neatly sliced in half.

Nodding in approval, the Emperor motioned for the second swordsman to be brought forward and the test repeated. This time there were two flashing arcs of steel, and the poor insect was not only halved, but quartered.

"A most impressive feat," said the Emperor, "undoubtedly impossible to surpass, but fairness dictates that the third man at least be afforded his opportunity to demonstrate his skill to the nation."

With that, the last samurai came forward, seemingly unperturbed by the hopelessness of his task. As the final jar was uncapped, there was just the barest impression of motion as his kitana appeared to flash through the air and was returned to its scabbard so quickly that some onlookers found it hard to tell if he had drawn the weapon at all. With its distinctive, annoying whine fading quickly the bug flew out a window as the crowd sighed as one.

"I'm sorry," said the Emperor, but your mosquito still lives."

"That is true," replied the confident fellow, with barely a hint of a smile, "but he will no longer reproduce."
