So here it is

Blue Christmas..........Elvis Presley

I'll have a blue christmas without you
I'll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green christmas tree
Wont be the same dear,
if you're not here with me
And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That's when those blue memories start calling
You'll be doin' all right, with your christmas of white
But I'll have a blue, blue blue blue christmas
You'll be doin' all right, with your christmas of white,
But I'll have a blue, blue blue blue christmas

Santa stuck in a chimney

Don't let this happen to you during the coming weeks

As we start the round of office and company Xmas party's
you may come accross this sign

Following on from the post about about Senior citizens, I was sent this by a senior who wishes to remain anonymous..Promised Frank I wouldn't tell anyone
We Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable
deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary.
We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.
BUT, upon reflection, we would like to point out that
it was NOT the senior citizens who took:
The melody out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
The romance out of love,
The commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,
The learning out of education,
The service out of patriotism,
The religion out of school,
The Golden Rule from rulers,
The nativity scene out of cities,
The civility out of behaviour,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,
or The ambition out of achievement,
And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience
and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!!
Remember.......Inside every older person is a younger person
wondering what the heck happened!

Uh Oh Pothole

Careful .... Don't look down

Also following on from my post sometime back about the French Terrorists alerts
I received this
"As many are aware, the French government recently announced a raise
in its terror alert from "Run" to "Hide".
The normal level is "General Arrogance",
and the only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate".
The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory,
effectively paralysing the country's military capability.
"This prompted some readers to comment that list membership
was perhaps biased against France (and what's wrong with that?),
and so, in order to promote a more balanced view, here is the latest from around the world:
It's not only the French that are on heightened level of alert:
Italy has increased the alert level from
"Shout loudly and excitedly" to "Elaborate military posturing".
Two more levels remain, "Ineffective combat operations" and "Change sides".
The Germans also increased their alert state from
"Disdain" to "Dress in uniform and sing marching songs".
They have two higher levels: "Invade a neighbour" and "Lose".
The British are also feeling the pinch in relation to recent bombings
and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved".
Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to
"Irritated" or even "A bit cross".
Londoners have not been "A bit cross" since the Blitz in 1940
when tea supplies all ran out.
Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "Bloody Nuisance".
The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance"
warning level was during the Great Fire of 1666.

Enjoy I've been everywhere with Patty, Dan and Lucy

Todays Cartoons

I purchased a Teddy Bear this morning
for the princely sum of $10.
I named him Mohammed.
This afternoon I sold him on E-Bay for $30.
My question is,
"Have I made a prophet?"
[thanks Chris Bone]
Then there was the Eskimo girl
who spent the night with herboy friend
and the next morning found
she was six months pregnant.
[thanks Robert Doohan]

Men were born this way Learn to deal with it
the following images were sent to me by Joan Andony..thanks Joan

And from my daughter Rennae , come these thoughts
1. Don't imagine you can change a man - unless he's in nappies.
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. Never let your man's mind wander - it's too little to be out alone.
5. Go for the younger man. You might as well, they never mature anyway.
6. Men are all the same - they just have different faces, so that you can tell them apart.
7. Definition of a bachelor: a man who has missed the opportunity to make some woman miserable.
8. Women don't make fools of men - most of them are the do-it-yourself types.
9. Best way to get a man to do something is to suggest he is too old for it.
10. Love is blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener.
11. If you want a committed man, look in a mental hospital.
12. The children of Israel wandered around the desert for 40 years.
Even in Biblical times, men wouldn't ask for directions.
13. If he asks what sort of books you're interested in, tell him cheque books
14. Remember a sense of humor does not mean that you tell him jokes,
it means that you laugh at his.
15. Sadly, all men are created equal.

Scientists have announced that we have made contact with an alien race.
Their planet consists solely of a gigantic shopping center.
The skeptical scientists didn't believe it at first.
How could this be?
But after tremendous research,
they have confirmed...
...that it's a mall world after all.

A bonus pun

A note left for a pianist from his wife:
Gone Chopin,
(have Liszt), Bach in a Minuet.

A man walked into a cowboy bar and ordered a beer just as former President Clinton
appeared on the television.
After a few sips, he looked up at the television and mumbled,
"Now, there's the biggest horse's ass I've ever seen."
A customer at the end of the bar quickly stood up,
walked over to him, and decked him.
A few minutes later, as the man was finishing his beer,
Hillary Clinton appeared on the television.
"She's a horse's ass too," the man said..
This time, a customer at the other end of the bar quickly stood up,
walked over to him, and knocked him off his stool.
"Damn it!" the man said, climbing back up to the bar.
"This must be Clinton country!"
"Nope," the bartender replied.
"Horse country!"

Good Dog

"Honey," said this husband to his wife,
"I invited a friend home for supper."
"What? Are you crazy? The house is a mess, I didn't go shopping,
all the dishes are dirty, and I don't feel like cooking a fancy meal!"
"I know all that."
"Then why did you invite a friend for supper?"
"Because the poor bastard's thinkin' about getting married."
A woman scanned the guests at a party and spotted an attractive man,
standing alone.
She approached him and said,
"Hi, my name is Carmen."
"That's a beautiful name," he replied.
"Is it a family name?"
"No," she said.
"I gave it to myself. It reflects the things I like most -- cars and men.
What's your name?"
He said, "Bob Titsenbeer."

A wound that will never heal -

Wasted and wounded,
it ain't what the moon did
Got what I paid for now
See ya tomorrow,
hey Frank can I borrow
A couple of bucks from you?
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
I'm an innocent victim of a blinded alley
And tired of all these soldiers here
No one speaks English and everything's broken
And my Stacys are soaking wet
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
Now the dogs are barking and the taxi cab's parking
A lot they can do for me
I begged you to stab me,
you tore my shirt open
And I'm down on my knees tonight
Old Bushmill's I staggered,
you buried the dagger
Your silhouette window light
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
Now I lost my Saint Christopher
now that I've kissed her
And the one-armed bandit knows
And the maverick Chinaman
and the cold-blooded signs
And the girls down by the strip-tease shows
Go, waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
No, I don't want your sympathy
The fugitives say that the streets aren't for dreaming now
Manslaughter dragnets and the ghosts that sell memories
They want a piece of the action anyhow
Go, waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
And you can ask any sailor
and the keys from the jailor
And the old men in wheelchairs know
That Matilda's the defendant,
she killed about a hundred
And she follows wherever you may go
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
And it's a battered old suitcase to a hotel someplace
And a wound that will never heal
No prima donna, the perfume is on her
An old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey
And goodnight to the street sweepers
The night watchman flame keepers

This next clip features Cab Callloway and the Nicholas Brothers
Remember this is long before rap music and the Blue Brothers movie
Watch this all the way thru as I reckon the Nicholas Brothers must be double jointed
Great clip
