A few words on Celibacy -YES you read that right! ;)

Celibacy can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by environmental encounters:

While attending a Marriage Encounter Weekend, Walter and his wife Ann, listened to the instructor declare, > > >"It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other." He addressed the men, "Can you name and describe your wife's favorite flower?" With a sweet smile on his face, Walter leaned over touched Ann's arm gently and whispered, "Pillsbury All-purpose, isn't it?" And thus began Walter's life of celibacy.

When I first finished reading this, passionate cook that I am, I thought, "Well I'd be really tickled if Hubby remembered my favorite brand of flour."

One more...

The River

Three men were hiking through a forest when they came upon a large
raging violent river.

Needing to get on the other side, the first man prayed,
"God,please give me the strength to cross the river."

Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim
across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice.

After witnessing that, the second man prayed,
"God, please give me strength and the tools to cross the river."

Poof! God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and strong legs and he
was able to row across in about an hour after almost capsizing once.

Seeing what happened to the first two men, the third man prayed,
God, please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to
cross the river.

" Poof! He was turned into a woman. She checked the map, hiked
one hundred yards up stream and walked across the bridge.

Let me just tell you, I'm no man basher, so please don't attack me with anti-woman jokes. I just thought this was cute.



  • Here's one for you:
    An unbelievably rich old man was getting ill and infirm, and knew that he didn't have long to live. So, he called his beautiful young wife to his side and told her, "When I die, I only ask one thing from you."
    "Anything, darling," she told him sweetly.
    "When I die," he announced, "I want to buried with my money. All of my money."
    "If that's what you want, dear," she agreed.
    Not long after this conversation, the rich man passed away. Many people knew of his request, and they all watched the new widow carefully at the funeral. Sure enough, during the graveside ceremony, the young widow produced a small box and placed it in the casket, then had the lid lowered and the coffin put to rest.
    Afterwards, her best friend approached her and asked her about the box.
    "You know, he wanted to be buried with his money," the young widow said.
    The friend marvelled at how faithful to her husband's wish the young widow was.
    "You are such a good person," the friend told her. "And I'm actually surprised that all of that money fit into so small a box!"
    "Actually," the widow said, "I tried, but it wouldn't fit. So I deposited it in my bank account and just wrote him a check."

    Not meant to be man or woman bashing, just heard it and thought it was funny!

    PS for some reason, I can't seem to make the haloscan comments work for me.
