Wednesday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏


WELCOME to Wednesday March 21, 2018. 

Here’s the story, Paresh, an Indian carpenter I once hired to help me restore my old farmhouse had just finished a difficult and hard first day on the job. A flat tire on his lorry made him lose an hour of work, his electric saw packed in, and now his ancient pickup truck refused to start. While I drove him home, Paresh sat in stony, thoughtful silence. On arriving, Paresh, in the way of all Indian gentlefolk, invited me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands. When opening the door to his home, he underwent an amazing transformation. His tanned face wreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and gave his wife a kiss. After a cup of tea, he walked me to my car. We passed the tree and my curiosity got the better of me. I asked him about what I had seen him do earlier. ‘Oh, that’s my trouble tree,’ Paresh replied.

‘I know I can’t help having troubles on the job, but one thing for sure, troubles don’t belong in the house with my wife and the children. So I just hang them on the tree every night when I come home.  Then in the morning I pick them up again. Funny thing is’, he smiled winningly, ‘when I come out in the morning to pick them up, there aren’t nearly as many as I remember hanging up the night before.’ That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a wonderful Wednesday people, and whatever you do,don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace I am outta here, Eucman!

G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….
Mary was flying from Dublin, Ireland, to Chicago; she had a problem with her luggage
so she asked the Priest beside her, ‘Father, may I ask a favor?’
‘Of course child. What may I do for you?’
‘Well, I bought an expensive hair dryer for my mother’s birthday. It is unopened and I’m
afraid they’ll confiscate it because I cannot pay the 20% import duty.  Is there any way
you could carry it through customs for me?  Hide it under your robes perhaps?’
‘I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you, I will not lie.’
‘With your honest face, Father, no one will question you.’  Said Mary.
When they got to the customs at O’Hare airport, she let the priest go first. The official
asked, ‘Father, do you have anything to declare?’
‘From the top of my head down to my waist I have nothing to declare.’
The official thought this answer strange, so asked, ‘And what do you have to declare
from your waist to the floor?’
‘I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman,
but which is, to date, unused.’
Roaring with laughter, the customs officer said, ‘Go ahead, Father’.😎😏
