WELCOME to FRIDAY JUNE 4, 2021
Here’s the Story….
A 72-year-old guy loves to fish.
He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, “Pick me up.”
He looked around and couldn’t see anyone.
He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, “Pick me up.”
He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog.
The man said, “Are you talking to me?”
The frog said, “Yes, I’m talking to you. Pick me up, then kiss me, and I’ll turn into the most beautiful
woman you have ever seen. I’ll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!”
The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front pocket.
The frog said, “What, are you nuts? Didn’t you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride.”
He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, “Nah, at my age I’d rather have a talking frog.”
With age comes wisdom. That’s my story and I’m sticking too it! Have a GREAT WEEKEND! people, stay safe, and
whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside
service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery
in the back country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn’t stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight.
There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men
for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place.
I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play. The workers put down their lunches and began to
gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve
never played before for this homeless man. And as I played ‘Amazing Grace,’ the workers began to weep.
They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car.
Though my head hung low, my heart was full. As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say,
“I never seen nothin’ like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.” 😱😳😁😎
Thursdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
Jackson Two-Bears: “Kid, Kid, what a time to fall off the wagon. Look at your eyes.”
Kid Sheleen: “What’s wrong with my eyes?”
Jackson Two-Bears: “Well they’re red, bloodshot.”
Kid Sheleen: “You ought to see ’em from my side.”
Answer: Cat Ballou!
This conversation is between Jackson Two-Bears and Kid Sheleen. Jackson is scolding Kid for getting drunk when he is needed to help foil Cat Ballou’s hanging and help her escape.
Jane Fonda plays school teacher, Catherine Ballou, and Lee Marvin plays the drunken gunfighter, Kid Shelleen.

The gang robs a train of a payroll and Cat ends up shooting and killing Sir Harry Percival, which is why she is to be hanged. Lee Marvin won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role. Jackson Two-Bears is played by Tom Nardini. Michael is Clay Boone and Dwayne Hickman is Uncle Jed. Stubby Kaye and Nat King Cole provide the music and singing for the movie.

Friday’s Quizzler is…….
My history is long in telling,
Though my origins are unknown.
I watch the tender earth most carefully,
Clothed in discards long disowned.
I guard against the raucous poachers,
Praying for a gust of wind that will animate my lifeless form.
The autumn winds will signal the completion of my job.
Maybe if I had a brain I’d choose to move south for the winter.
Who am I?
