Funnies + Oil locations + Dipsticks + Poems + Blethers.

Hi Folks,

I saw this one in Judy's site and I snuck it on to my site, the only difference I would make in the wording would be to tell you that 'our' oil is located in the Scottish waters and our 'dipsticks' are usually found when 'parliament is in session' at the Palace of Westminster. All credit for this bit of the post - should go to Judy , the other side of the hill.. I really think this one is priceless and it appeals to my funny bone - I hope you enjoy it too.... Thanks Judy !

"A lot of folks can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in our country. Well, there's a very simple answer. Nobody bothered to check the oil. We just didn't know we were getting low. The reason for that is purely geographical. Our 'OIL' is located in Alaska, California, Coastal Florida, Coastal Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Texas - Our 'Dipsticks' are located in Washington, DC!!! Any Questions??? NO? Didn't think So "...


Isn't it funny how some things you hear when you are not really listening seem to stick in your memory, just as I was falling over to sleep last night the radio was on - as usual . I remember the announcer at the end of his News bulletin saying that a Ryanair flight had had to be diverted to somewhere in the middle east due to the fact that an overhead cupboard had opened and the person underneath the cupboard had been dripped on from above her head... What do you think was in the cupboard ? Well apparently it was a boxful of Mushroom soups which was to be part of the meal onboard. The awful thing was the lady was allergic to mushrooms and she had a major reaction to the soup - thus causing all sorts of problems for all on board.... Blimey! you couldn't make it up could you ?


Another couple of wee ditties from my collection...

Plusses and minuses, roundabouts and swings
Life's full of ups and downs - It's just the way of things.
We cannot see the future, We move on - come what may.
But if we reach rock bottom - "Up" is the only way !

On looking back we ponder, On the things that we have done,
and we sometimes wonder - How the race is run.
For Life's a game of pitch and toss, we can't win all the way.
Don't count the cost if you have lost - You'll win another day !

Cheers for all from Scotland, the land of the heather and the tartan, Love Kate xxx.
