Loving Embrace../ Some Funnies...

Hi Folks,

Here's to Air Force Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt, of the 332nd Expeditionary Medical Group at Balad, Iraq, as he cradles a young girl as they both sleep in the hospital. The girl's entire family was executed by insurgents: the killers shot her in the head as well. The girl received treament at the U.S. military hospital in Balad, but cries and moans often. Poor wee soul, God love her.
According to nurses at the facility Sgt.Gebhardt is the only one who can calm the wee girl down, so he has spent the last several nights holding her while they both sleep in a chair...... This is a face of the Iraq Conflict/War that we don't often see.

Wales ......
On a beautiful summer’s day, two English tourists were driving through Wales . At a place called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyllllantysiliogogoch they stopped for lunch, and one of the tourists asked the waitress, ‘Before we order, I wonder if you could settle an argument for us. Can you pronounce where we are, very, very, very slowly?’
......... The girl leaned over and said,
......... ’Burrr … gurrr … King’!

The Minimum Wage ...
A man owned a small farm in Scotland . The Inland Revenue claimed there was something fishy going on, he was not paying proper wages to his staff and sent a representative out to interview him.'I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,' demanded the rep.'Well,' replied the farmer, 'there's my farmhand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him 200 a week plus free room and board.''The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her 150 per week plus free room and board.''Then there's the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about £10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of whiskey every Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.''That's the guy I want to talk to...the half-wit,' says the agent. 'That would be me,' replied the farmer.

My Dream .........
Last night as I lay sleeping I died or so it seemed
Then I went to heaven But only in my dream
Up there St Peter met me standing at the pearly gates
He said "I must check your record Please stand here and wait"
He turned and said "your record is covered with terrible flaws,
On earth I see you rallied For losing every cause
I see that you drank alcohol and smoked and used drugs too,
fact is, you've done everything a good person should never do.
We can't have people like you up here Your life was full of sin"
Then he read the last of my record took my hand and said "come in"
He led me to the big boss and said "take him in and treat him well
He used to work for the Council, he has done his time in hell"

Something else to give you a laugh! It sort of connects with one of the recent posts on the 'Grammy of 13 ' site, have a look at her site and exercise your chuckle muscles......
I'm ending this post with a soppy video (as normal for me) it shows some gorgeous pictures - Enjoy!

Cheers from the land of the Tartan and the Heather, Love Kate xxx.
