Saturday Night Humor

Never Lie To A Woman.

A man called home to his wife and said, " Honey I have been asked to go fishing up in Canada with my boss & several of his Friends. We'll be gone for a week. 

This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I've been wanting, so could you please pack enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and fishing box. We're leaving from the office and; I'll swing by the house to pick my things up". 

" Oh! And, Please pack my new blue silk pajamas. "

The wife thinks this sounds a bit fishy but being the good wife she is, did exactly what her husband asked.

The following weekend he came home a little tired but otherwise looking good. The wife welcomed him home and asked if he caught many fish?

He said, "Yes! Lots of Salmon, some Bluegill, and a few Swordfish. But why didn't you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you to do?"

You're going to love her answer...

The wife replied, "I did. They're in your fishing box ..."

Never Lie To A Woman...!!!

If I Were a Blackbird

If I Were a Blackbird

If I were a blackbird sitting high in a tree,
I’d fly away from everyone that keeps messing with me.
People with their begging and their constant needs,
I’d find myself a secret place and go hunting for some seeds.

 If I were a blackbird all sleek and shiny,
I would get away from people that are constantly whiny.
I’d find myself a quiet place to rest in peace,
I wouldn’t go back until the neediness has ceased.

 Awww, But “IF” is such a useless word, it doesn’t do much good.
It accomplishes nothing, so I never understood
why I indulge it and use it, it doesn’t help one bit,
So if(ing), could(ing), and would(ing), I had better quit.

Grandparents Day At School

Thursday morning started out okay. I woke up feeling pretty good, nothing to brag about, but okay. I showered and took my time getting dressed. I had an 11:45 appointment to go to Jace’s school for Grandparents Day. Today, Grandparents get to eat lunch with their grands. Yaaaa!

I arrived at the school about 11:30, wanting to be early for our lunch. Jace was happily excited as he spotted me walking into the cafeteria. He ran up and gave me a great big hug, laughing and grinning from ear-to-ear. I was grinning from ear-to-ear myself! We were as happy as a couple of monkeys in a banana factory!

We made our way to his table and took our seats. He was more than half way through with his lunch already. Boy, seems like somebody gave me the wrong time fro Jace’s lunch. Oh well…

Anyway, he munched on the rest of his lunch and chatted with his friends sitting on the opposite side of the table. He and I chatted intermittently between his and his friends’ goofy shenanigans.

I was happy and excited to be there enjoying this special moment with him. He was happy I was able to come. I enjoyed watching him interact with his classmates. They were a comedic little bunch of characters!

Not my photo. 
Just a likeness of what it looked like across the table.

What a wonderful treat that was, lunch with “My Boy…My Sunshine”!

Daddy’s Legacy

RIP Daddy: 

Hermise Mason Wilkins ~

July 25, 1918 – September 3, 1988 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

Daddy's Legacy 

 Six feet tall in his stocking feet with an inch or two to spare,
like coffee laced with whipping cream, his skin it was so fair.
Above his lips below his nose his moustache did stand out,
all neatly groomed and trimmed it was without a minute’s doubt.

He was long and lean and lanky, he was handsome as could be.
He always tamed the hats he wore with creases A to Z.
His khakis creased and starched from waist to spit-shined shoes,
all bathed and dressed and smelling good he’s ready for some blues.

Daddy loved and cherished Mama, she was his all and all
He showed her his devotion when he called her “Baby Doll”.
He always tried to snuggle at the end of every day
It did us kids a world of good to see our dad that way.

Daddy loved us kids a lot, we knew that from the start.
The attention he provided us came from deep within his heart.


Six feet tall with mocha skin and wise beyond his years,
he left this world in ’88 I cried a many tears.

I wiped my face I dried my tears my dad’s life was over.
He lived his life he gave his best, And, now he’s with Jehovah.

Now that Daddy’s gone I know the lessons that he left,
everything he taught me makes me be my better self.

His legacy is simple; 
it is awesome with its power,
to live and love to sing and dance 
and to embrace the hour.
