WELCOME to THURSDAY JANUARY 28, 2021
Here’s the Story……
Emily was driving in her Chevrolet Bolt along the Interstate 17 in Arizona, on her way home to Phoenix.
Suddenly she saw a poor, elderly Apache woman walking very slowly along the side of the highway.
Recognizing that this situation was quite dangerous and feeling sorry for the poor woman,
Emily pulled over and offered her a lift.
The Apache woman nodded silently in appreciation and climbed into the car.
Naturally Emily tried to engage her in conversation but initially the Apache woman
remained silent and she seemed a bit nervous.
However, as they progressed along the highway towards Phoenix the woman eventually
started to relax a little and then she started to look around.
The old woman was looking closely at everything in the car, apparently studying every detail.
Then she noticed a pale blue gift bag on the rear seat behind Emily.
“What’s in the bag?” she asked Emily, almost whispering.
“Oh,” Emily responded warmly, “it’s a bottle of Whiskey that I got for my husband.”
The Apache woman remained silent momentarily and then speaking with the quiet wisdom of someone
who’s been around the block a few times, she smiled and said, “Good trade.”😳😁😎

It’s alright if you don’t agree with me.

To make a mistake is human but
to blame it on someone else, now
that’s even more human.

G u a r a n t e e d to Make You Laugh!
While cruising at 35,000 feet, the aircraft suddenly shuddered violently.
One passenger looked out of the window and then shouted, “Oh my God! One of the engines has just blown up.”
The passengers were white with fear when moments later the aircraft was rocked by a second blast as an engine on the opposite side exploded.
Passengers started to panic and the cabin crew struggled to keep order.
However just then the Captain strode confidently from the cockpit and assured everyone that there was nothing about which they should be alarmed.
Reassured by the Captain’s calm manner, passengers returned to their seats and he coolly walked over to the aircraft’s door.
He then grabbed several packages from under the seats near the door and started handing them to the rest of the crew.
Crew members immediately fastened these packages to their backs.
One observant passengers said, “Hey, aren’t they parachutes?”
“Yes,” said the Captain.
“But you said there was no need to be alarmed,” the passenger responded.
“There isn’t,” replied the Captain as a third engine suddenly exploded. “We’re going to get help.” 😱😳😁😎
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Your son has a very great talent. I don’t think you are aware how great it is. That he is attempting to use that very talent against your will.” “He is a very willful boy.”
Answer: The Shining!
In the events leading up to this scene, Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) has accepted the job of being the winter caretaker for an isolated Colorado resort hotel, despite hearing a grisly story about a previous caretaker going stir crazy and killing his family. Jack, his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd) arrive at the Overlook hotel just as the staff is getting ready to leave. They are shown the kitchen by the resort’s chef Dick Hallorann (Scatman Crothers), who realizes Danny has the special power of mental telepathy his grandmother used to call “shining.” In this scene a delusional Jack is having a conversation with Delbert Grady (Philip Stone), a butler he thinks is the caretaker who killed his family. Grady says line one and Jack replies with line two. Grady then adds, “Indeed he is, Mr. Torrance. A very willful boy. A rather naughty boy, if I may be so bold, sir.” When Jack replies, “It’s his mother. She, uh, interferes” Grady says, “Perhaps they need a good talking to, if you don’t mind my saying so. Perhaps a bit more. My girls, sir, they didn’t care for the Overlook at first. One of them actually stole a pack of matches, and tried to burn it down. But I “corrected” them sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I “corrected” her.” The ominous-sounding music in the opening scene is just wonderful.

Wednesday’s Quizzler is….
A man was hiking in the hills for the first time and, for safety, he brings along two guides. At the beginning of the hike, the first guide said, “Keep all personal items close, stay behind me, and above all else, keep your balance around the steep dropoffs!” The second guide had never been on such a long hike and, despite the warnings, tumbled off one of the high cliffs and rolled into a valley. The second guide’s spine was broken in the fall. The man and the first guide watched the fall, shrugged, and moved on. Why did they offer no help or concern?
Answer: The second guide was a book.
