A Carved Tree - Stories and Funnies...

Hi folks,

I came across this article by Francis Gay and as it spoke to me I thought I would share it . Have a look-see ......
The talk had turned to tattoos and Mike said he'd had one for the past 15 years. Rob was stunned. He'd been in plenty of changing rooms after playing football with Mike and as his best man had helped him get dressed for his wedding to Sarah 10 years previously and had never in all that time he'd never spotted a tattoo.
So Mike shared the secret of his invisible tattoo with his best mate. When he'd first fallen for Sarah he'd actually gone to a tattoo parlour - slightly merry, if truth be told - to get "Sarah" written on his arm. The tattoo artist had shaken his head and given Mike some good advice. Some names aren't for the skin," he said. "Some are for writing on the heart."

He might have just been preventing Mike from making a drunken mistake, but he took his advice and mentally wrote "Sarah" across his heart - and her name is still there. Maybe the tattoo artist was just being cautious, or maybe he was as wise as he sound - but isn't that where we should keep all our loved ones?

It's often better not to play a joke on an old friend
For he might take it in a way that you did not intend
And think before you criticise - another person's act
But if you must, then it is wise to choose your words with tact.

I am ending today's blog with some funnies left over from my post from my Brother-in-law in Dumfries the other day ......

One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his Sweat-Shirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, 'what setting do I use on the washing machine?' 'It depends,' I replied. 'What does it say on your shirt?' He yelled back, ' Liverpool ..'
And they say blondes are dumb...
