WELCOME to WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2021
Here’s the story…..
Alice was an attractive young woman and she was shopping in a
department store looking to buy material for a dress she was making.
At the fabric counter she spotted some suitable material and said to
the young male clerk behind the counter, “What’s the cost of this material please?”
“Well miss the price for that is just one kiss per yard,” replied the clerk, with a confident grin on his face.
“That’s fine,” said Alice. “I’ll take ten yards please.”
Well the clerk couldn’t believe his luck. He quickly measured out the
cloth, folded it carefully, wrapped it up, then teasingly held the package out to Alice.
She in turn accepted the package, smiled and then, pointing to the elderly
man behind her, she said, “My grandpa will settle the bill.”
And with that she proceeded to browse at the next counter.
Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY people, stay safe,
and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up!
Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!

Everything is funny, as long as it’s
happening to somebody else. ~Will Rogers
It’s your outlook on life that counts. If you
take yourself lightly and don’t take yourself
too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor
in our everyday lives. And sometimes
it can be a lifesaver. ~Betty White
Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is
the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It
is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends.
It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to
serenity and contentment. ~Grenville Kleiser
I realize that humor isn’t for everyone. It’s only for
people who want to have fun, enjoy life and
feel alive. ~Anne Wilson Schaef
A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon
without springs. It’s jolted by every pebble
on the road. ~Henry Ward Beec
G u a r a n t e e d to Make You Laugh!
The store manager overheard her sales assistant saying to an elderly customer,
“No mam, we haven’t had any for some weeks now, and it doesn’t look as if we’ll be getting any soon.”
Alarmed by what she’d heard, the store manager rushed over to the elderly lady as she
was leaving the store and said, “Mam, I am so sorry, the information you were given was
incorrect. We will actually have some very soon. We’ve placed an order today.”
The elderly lady gave the store manager a slightly puzzled look, but then just smiled and left the store.
The store manager then walked back over to her sales assistant and said very sternly, “You must
never say that we don’t have something. If we don’t have it, say we have it on order
and we expect it any day. Do you understand me?”
“Yes, mam!” responded the sales assistant.
“So what was it the old lady was asking for?” enquired the store manager.
“Rain”, responded her sales assistant. 😱😁😎
