Beautiful Bright Sunny Thursday

Good morning friends, my wonderful five friends that read my blog. Some times six or seven of you. I'm very happy and proud to have a group of you that keep me excited doing this blog. 
As the title says, beautiful,bright, sunny Thursday. Even up to last night, we having snow showers but this morning a bright sunshine and, now listen to this, 50 degrees.
Yesterday I went to my first golf lesson. The PGA teacher showed us how to correctly hold the golf club and he went and spoke to each of us if there were any problems that we had. After I spoke to him about my problems, He was amazed that I can golf at all and he did say that he could help me hitting the ball a little further. That's all that I want.

Today I go for lunch with my cousins Dan & Tony. 

Funny Golf Story - The Golf Jackpot

A man takes the day off work and decides to go out golfing. He is on the second hole when he notices a frog sitting next to the green.

He thinks nothing of it and is about to shoot when he hears, "Ribbit 9 Iron."

The man looks around and doesn't see anyone. Again, he hears, "Ribbit 9 Iron." He looks at the frog and decides to prove the frog wrong. He puts the club away, and grabs a 9 iron.

Boom! He hits it 10 inches from the cup.

He is shocked. He says to the frog, "Wow, that's amazing.You must be a lucky frog, eh?"

The frog replies, "Ribbit Lucky Frog."

The man decides to take the frog with him to the next hole.

"What do you think, frog?" the man asks.

"Ribbit 3 Wood."

The guy takes out a 3 wood and, Boom! Hole in one. The man is befuddled and doesn't know what to say.

By the end of the day, the man golfed the best game of golf in his life. He asks the frog, "OK, where to next?"

The frog replies, "Ribbit Las Vegas."

They go to Las Vegas and the guy says, "OK, frog, now what?"

The frog says, "Ribbit Roulette."

Upon approaching the roulette table, the man asks, "What do you think I should bet?"

The frog replies, "Ribbit $3000, black 6."

Now, this is a million-to-one shot to win, but, after the golf game, the man figures what the heck.

Boom! Tons of cash comes sliding back across the table.

The man takes his winnings and buys the best room in the hotel. He sits the frog down and says, "Frog, I don't know how to repay you. You've won me all this money and I am forever grateful."

The frog replies, "Ribbit Kiss Me."

He figures why not, since, after all the frog did for him, he deserves it.

With a kiss, the frog turns into a gorgeous 15-year-old girl.

"And that, your honor, is how the girl ended up in my room. So help me God."


Well that's all for today. I'm trying to do little things different in my blog. Let me know if you want more jokes or cartoons.

April ICE

Good morning everyone. I said good moning for you because around here, April 15th I woke up to a picture like this above. We had ICE last night. The day we had a temperature of 76 degrees and this morning ICE. It's crazy around here. This week I'm suppose to have two golf lessons not skating lessons. 
On Friday I visited my friend Gerry and his wife Shirley. Gerry is recuperating from open heart surgery. He looks good but it will take about three months to get back to normal but even then he has to be careful. Shirley told me that Gerry will drive the golf cart while she plays golf. Oh my, that will just kill him. Ha,ha,ha. I'm so happy just seeing him up and at it.


It's nobody's birthday at the moment but I just thought it was funny.

A young man who was also an avid golfer found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in nine holes before he had to head home. Just as he was about to tee off an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able to say no, he allowed the old gent to join him. To his surprise the old man played fairly quickly. He didn't hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn't waste much time. Finally, they reached the 9th fairway and the young man found himself with a tough shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball - and directly between his ball and the green. After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot the old man finally said, "You know, when I was your age I'd hit the ball right over that tree." With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right smack into the top of the tree trunk and it thudded back on the ground not a foot from where it had originally lay. The old man offered one more comment, "Of course, when I was your age that pine tree was only three feet tall."

Today is April 11th and can you believe it? This morning I looked out the window and saw SNOW! Golfers can't get out to play.  I have 4 golf lessons coming up and I would love to get out and play but not with a winter coat on. Yuk!
This week we have a company digging and placing tubes with wires in them. The call it " fiber optics ".

Bell company is spending a great deal of money putting this in our area. 

Definition of fiber optics

1 : thin transparent fibers of glass or plastic that are enclosed by material of a lower refractive index and that transmit light throughout their length by internal reflections; also : a bundle of such fibers used in an instrument (as for viewing body cavities)
It means nothing to me. All it means is that my internet can be faster BUT it will call me more money if I want it.


A blonde, a redhead, and a brunette were all lost in the desert. They found a lamp and rubbed it. A genie popped out and granted them each one wish. The redhead wished to be back home. Poof! She was back home. The brunette wished to be at home with her family. Poof! She was back home with her family. The blonde said, "Awwww, I wish my friends were here."

There was a blonde who just got sick and tired of all the blonde jokes. One evening, she went home and memorized all the state capitals. Back in the office the next day, some guy started telling a dumb blonde joke. She interrupted him with a shrill announcement, "I've had it up to here with these blonde jokes. I want you to know that this blonde went home last night and did something probably none of you could do. I memorized all the state capitals." One of the guys, of course, said, "I don't believe you. What is the capital of Nevada?" "N," she answered. 


That's it for today except, it's still snowing. Oh my God!

Lawyer Trying To Prove His Clients Innocence Backfires A fellow’s wife went missing and being that everyone knew that he and his wife were in a big fight he was accused of murdering her and disposing of the body. When witness after witness came to the stand testifying to all sorts of horrible threats that the accused threatened his wife and things were looking quite dim for the accused the man’s lawyer got up to the stand. “Ladies and Gentleman of the jury I have something quite exciting to tell you, if you would all please direct your attention towards the door behind me on my left you will see the supposedly dead women walk in on her own two feet.” There was a loud murmuring in the courtroom as all eyes turned towards the door. “Ladies and Gentleman” said the lawyer after a few seconds of anxious waiting, “To be honest with you, Nobody is going to be walking through the door, however from the fact that your eyes all turned towards the door it is quite obvious that you are not sure beyond the shadow of a doubt about my client’s guilt.” To the lawyer’s great surprise, the jury decided that the man was guilty. “But how could you say that he is guilty? Didn’t I prove it to you?” Questioned the lawyer. “It is true that we all turned towards the door,” one old lady explained, “but there was person who didn’t.” “Whose that?” Questioned the indignant lawyer. “Your client.” Came the reply.

Interesting Spring

Good evening friends. I wanted to write tonight because I will be spending watching the Masters Golf Tournament.
A short little note about my friend Gerry, my golfing friend. He was rushed to the hospital last week a serious open heart operation. He came home Thursday and called me up. He sounds a little rough but just to hear his voice was heavenly. He told me that he will be out for about 8 weeks. I told him I was just happy knowing he back. He told me that in about two weeks I might be able to visit him. I can't wait. Get well Gerry.

 I'm trying different ideas dealing with jokes and I'll starting with jokes about Canadians of which I am true and true. I'm a Canuck.

After the North American Beer Festival, all the brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer. The guy from Corona sits down and says, "Hey Senor, I would like the world's best beer, a Corona." The bartender dusts off a bottle from the shelf and gives it to him.

The guy from Budweiser says, "I'd like the best beer in the world, give me The King Of Beers', a Budweiser." The bartender gives him one. The guy from Coors says, "I'd like the only beer made with Rocky Mountain spring water, give me a Coors." He gets it.

The guy from Molson sits down and says, "Give me a Coke." The bartender is a little taken aback, but gives him what he ordered.

The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask, "Why aren't you drinking a Molson's?" The Molson president replies, "Well, I figured if you guys aren't drinking beer, neither would I."

Good morning everyone. This month is crazy for me. Yesterday I took my Camero on the road and went to car shop to have the oil change and check the tires. They were down a bit.

Tomorrow 4th, my wife and I have to visit with our financial advisor, the lady who I always ask her, can I have another cruise and guess what her comment always come back, Paul, you can two if you want. Horray!

On Friday, the 6th, I have a meeting with " Shar ", the place where I go to have a pedicure.

Now next week on Tuesday, the 10th, I have a massage, I love having a massage. My muscles have always been tight and each time she tells me that my muscles have knots in my shoulders and neck. She has been loosing them out and each time I'm feeling much better.

Now each Thursday my cousins Dan & Tony go for lunch over at McDonald's.  I usually get the hamburger and medium, double, double.

 Because golf is just beginning, I decided to go and get some lessons. I just wanted to learn to swing a little better. I'm not going to be that much better as a golfer but I just wanted to improve . On the Wednesday 18th ,
Friday 20th, Wednesday 25th and Friday 27th hopefully the pro golfer will help me a little.

Now the last week of April, Monday the 23rd will be my final chiropractor day. I've been with him for the entire year. He's straighten my back to where I feel really great. Before I began with him, I waas a mess, totally in pain every day. Now I feel with no pain what so ever.

 The last thing that I have to have done is my yearly physical. As I get older, I need to check and see how my body is doing. I can tell that I'm slowing down a little. People have noticed that I need to use my cane a great deal. My balance is off a little and next year is colonoscopy. My dad, he died because of colon cancer, told me just before he die, told me to make sure to have a colonoscopy. I've always had it done.

So that is my entire April month. I feel tired just writing this down.


Just before I leave, last night I received a phone call my golfing buddy 's wife. We have been noticing that have been gone for the last week and last night she called to inform me that Gerry, my friend, was in London, Ontario hospital. She told me that Gerry had had open heart surgery.It seems he went through the operation great and should be home soon. Get well Gerry so that we can out an play golf again.

A Very Special Woman, My Wife

Saturday will be a very special day. It will be my wife's 70th birthday. Ordinarily you might say, " Are you crazy Paul, telling people your wife's age "? I might be crazy, crazy in love with a woman doesn't even look 70. She goes to an exercise class every day of the week and if she looks as good as she does, it wouldn't matter if she was any age. 

She came from Sarnia, October from a family of 9 children. She knew what she wanted to be, a teacher and after becoming that teacher she got first job in Windsor.

One day a parent came in to see a teacher and wanted to be sent to see a teacher. Mary Lou saw her and brought her to that teacher. The mother said thank you feeling Mary Lou was a student. She was embarrassed after knowing that Mary Lou was a teacher. She's always looked young.

Mary Lou & I met going to Octoberfest. After seeing her I said, " I have to see that 
woman " and I did. After spending some time I asked for a date and that began our life.
After some time I asked her to marry me and she said yes. She was going to a vacation to the Bahamas.  One lady got sick and had to get out of the vacation. Mary Lou asked me to go knowing that she would be staying with a friend because we weren't married yet. I thought that was fantastic so I went.

That is me sleeping on the plane. Yes you can laugh, everyone else did because of my jacket.

After 5 months Mary Lou & I were married.

That is me in my graduation photo. Of course Mary Lou stood out that day.

As our life went on, we had a baby and later she was pregnant but then that's when our life came a turn. I had that stroke but Mary Lou was strong for all of us, especially me. 
 She had our third child and our life was great.

 That is Mary Lou, me & our son Michael when we had a family get together

 My dad loved Mary Lou. He told me that he know that she was a good one and informed me to make sure never let her go. She was a keeper. Mary Lou loved dad and always told him when she had to say to him. That's what he meant, she was a keeper.

After dad died and when I retired from teaching I wanted to go on a vacation. She said If I want to go, you arrive it & I'll go with you. I knew what that meant, she knew that I wouldn't couldn't complain and  yes we went on our first cruise.
And yes, she did enjoy the cruise. Each year we went on another cruise and each time she looked even better.
I'm going to show many of Mary Lou on our cruise.

On the Carnival Vista, they had this ride called the Skyride. You had a bike ride in the air goung around the ship. Mary Lou enjoyed all the things to do on the ship and the Skyride the best. She is on the Skyride.

Whiling she rode she could look out in to ocean.

Last year on the Celebrity Reflection we both enjoyed the cruise.
You noticed that she's sitting down. Not because she's lazy, that's me, but because she was outside doing many different things that the ship allowed her to do. 

I asked her to stand near this gigantic drink so that I could take a photo. Mary Lou doesn't even drink, well maybe a little bit.I laughed at that.
I wanted to have that photo to show that we look pretty good and and show that this year we would be married for 44 years. Not bad for a 70 year old woman. 

Now you know why I wasn't afraid, well maybe a little of saying what her age. People tell her that she looks in the 50's and me, well they say I'm in my 70's and I'm 68 years old.
