Play it again Sam

Ingid Bergman,

One of my favorite actresses,
played in the movie Casa Blanca, taking place in Nazi occupied, Morocco.

It’s a WW2 movie where Bogart is torn between his love for her and his virtue where doing the right thing was important.
Should he keep his love or help her leave with her resistance leader husband.

She said of Bogart: “I kissed him but I didn’t know him.”

Play It Again Sam

by Joe Halli

Flim flam Play it again Sam
Sing about the good old days
When all we knew was love
Flim flam What's the matter Sam
Have you long forgotten happiness
And what are you thinking of?
Cause the good old days
Are only good 'cause we forgot the bad
And the happy times and pleasant thoughts
Somehow block out the sad
Cause the smiles outlast the tears
And the hopes outlast the fears
And nothing outlasts the cheers
Of the friends you always had
As the past and future converge on now
I look at Sam and where I am
And try to picture exactly how
I'll see this scene in some time
Will I see his frown, the rain-soaked ground
The remnants of this dying town?
Or will a pleasant memory grow
In my flawed but fertile mind
It's in the Crystal stars and the sunrise
Perfect hair and twinklin' eyes
A place of life where no one dies
A perfect world built on lies.
Flim flamPlay it again Sam
Sing about the good old days
For sorrow needs no song
Flim flam
It's alright Sam

Macau...a once Portuguese colony....

Macau was an interesting place to visit, being right next door to Hong Kong.We were impressed with this building - Sao Paulo, A Catholic landmark.It was burnt down in 1835.You are able to see only the front and the back façade of the front side of the building. It feels weird to walk indoors only to find you’re outside again.

It was interesting to discover how difficult it was to bury foreigners out there. Portuguese Catholics did not allow Protestants to be buried on their soil so the East India Company bought some land in 1814 for the old Protestant Cemetary.

It was further surprising to find Artist George Chinnery, (died 1852.)

Royal Navy Capt. J.H. Spencer / Churchill, son of the 5th Duke of Marlbrough and great great grand uncle of Winston Churchill and US Naval Lieut Joseph Harod Adams, grandson of the second President of the United States John Adams and Nephew of the 6th John Quincy Adams, buried there.

Three Word Thursday # 17


It was their own fault.
They let me go.

All it took was one error in judgement.

They couldn't INVIGILATE as the requirements demanded, with staff shortages and this mistake cost them.

They gasped to see me stand and walk

I stared them down as I always did, with a cold blank expression,

and made my way towards the Exit sign.

Their second mistake was when they touched me.

Years of STAGNICOLOUS living had its rewards.

I was immune..... and they were not.

The outer core of my blue body glistened from the wet acidic mucous covering it.

Touching it burnt the skin of a normal man and the fumes....once inhaled....well,

lets just say it wasn't a pleasant way to die.

Once outside the lab door, it was easy.

It was April 1st . My RISIBLE consternation affected every one differently.

By the time they could comprehend what was going on, my gay innocent affront, got me past the front door and outside, into the fresh open air.

I was free.

Three Word Thursday # 16

The song was sung.

The deed was done.

and now??????? What shall become of me?

I hated being a NIDDERING cry baby.

Always being seen as needy, is never flattering but what was I to do?

My life consisted of being an AMANUENSIS to some one elses's fantasy.

How much more could I take?

I tired of being a TYRO, always learning and relearning the same things over and over, tested over and over, never passing go, never advancing to the next level.

There were no exciting DIVIGATIONS.

It was always the same. I wanted to cry but it wasn't in the program.

They kept taking blood and injecting me causing RUBEFACIENT itchiness and SENTICOUS numbness throughout my body.

It was PERSPICACIOUS of them, except they didn't know.

They had no idea.

I did advance.
I was not a QUONDAM from the past.

I.....was the future.

Think you will enjoy this as well

and That's how the fight started

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our

upcoming anniversary.

She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0

to 200 in about 3 seconds.

I bought her a scale..

And that's how the fight started.


I asked my wife, 'Where do you want to go for our


It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet


'Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!' she said.

So I suggested, 'How about the kitchen?'

And that's how the fight started.


My wife and I are watching Who Wants To Be A

Millionaire while we were in bed.

I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to have sex?'

'No,' she answered.

I then said, 'Is that your final answer?'

She didn't even look at me this time, simply

saying 'Yes.'

So I said, 'Then I'd like to phone a friend.'

And that's how the fight started


I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Miller Light

for $14..95. Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream

for $7.95. I told her the beer would make her look

better at night than the cold cream.

And that's how the fight started.


I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some

reason, took my order first.

'I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please.'

He said, 'Aren't you worried about the mad cow?'

'Nah, she can order for herself.'

And that's how the fight started

The Flower - Alfred Lord Tennyson

The Flower

Once in a golden hour
I cast to earth a seed.
Up there came a flower,
The people said, a weed.
To and fro they went
Thro’ my garden-bower,
And muttering discontent
Cursed me and my flower.
Then it grew so tall
It wore a crown of light,
But thieves from o’er the wall
Stole the seed by night;
Sow’d it far and wide
By every town and tower,
Till all the people cried,
‘Splendid is the flower.’
Read my little fable:
He that runs may read.
Most can raise the flowers now
For all have got the seed.
And some are pretty enough,
And some are poor indeed;
And now again the people
Call it but a weed.

You have enchanted me
I am lost forever in your spell

I Love You.

I love you
From the depths of time
Till the end of time
I will always love you.

It was already written before our birth
That it should be so.
It was rehearsed and agreed to live and to die
And to live again, before time emerged.
Hand in hand
Eye to eye
Our souls as one
Our purpose won.

We go beyond wars politics and fame
We go beyond rewards, recorded births, deaths
Historical documents
And the Bible’s Commandments.

Before time began
It was just you and me
Eternal light

Blessed was our destiny.

Scene: A court room in Oklahoma where a person is on trial for murder. There is strong evidence indicating guilt; however, there is no corpse.

In the defense closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client is guilty and that it looks like he'll probably be convicted, resorts to a clever trick." Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all," the lawyer says as he looks at his watch. "Within 1 minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this court room," he says and he looks toward the courtroom door.

The jury, somewhat stunned, all look on eagerly. A minute passes. Nothing happens.

Finally the lawyer says: "Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I, therefore, put it to you that there is reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not guilty."

The jury, clearly confused, retires to deliberate.

A few minutes later, the jury returns and a representative pronounces a verdict of guilty. "But how?" inquires the lawyer. "You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door."

Answers the jury foreman: "Oh, we did look. But your client didn't." -- thanks to HelenMarie

The Kiss...who can resist...

We all know THE KISS when we see it.
The KISS brings us joy, pain, contentment, anger, fear, tears …. vulnerability and emotions we never knew we had.
It is associated with LOVE but it doesn’t have to be, as we all kiss for different reasons, some of which are shown here.

The Kiss of Passion

The Kiss of Innocence

The Kiss of Betrayal

The Kiss of Death

The Kiss of An Angel

The Kiss or Rear Ender

The Kiss Off

The Candy Kisses

The Princely Kiss

The Friendship Kiss

The Farewell Kiss

The Butterfly or Laughing Eskimo Kiss

The Well Known Beloved Kiss

The Final Kiss

Next to eating, THE KISS is the most important thing in all our lives.
As beings with human emotion, THE KISS can expose truths and lies better than any court of law.
It connects and separates better than telephones and walls and it unites better than flowers, chocolates or ice cream.
Without it…. we’d be very lonely people indeed.

From Here to Maturity

I went to the liquor store to buy a bottle of wine.
Another woman was standing in front of me and the cashier asked her for her ID.

When it came to my turn, she didn't ask me.

Now that is kinda a bummer, I thought, when they stop asking you for your ID.
So, I went home and changed and came back to buy another bottle of wine.

This time she asked me for my ID. :):):)

This is what I looked like.:)

After checking my ID though.........She gave me THE look....

I must have looked really young lol :)

Man ----Woman ---- What?

1. A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he wants. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't want.
2. A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
3. A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
4. To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot & love him a little. To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot & not try to understand her at all.
5. Married men live longer than single men - but married men are a lot more willing to die.
6. Any married man should forget his mistakes - there's no use in two people remembering the same thing.
7. Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
8. A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change & she does.
9. A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
10. There are 2 times when a man doesn't understand a woman - before marriage & after marriage.

Recipe to Wash

The Washer-Women


Ye say, they all have passed away, That noble race and brave, That their light canoes have vanished From off the crested wave; That 'mid the forests where they roamed There rings no hunter's shout; But their name is on your waters, Ye may not wash it out.
-Sigourney, Lydia Howard ne¤ e Huntley

Washing Clothes Recipe

Never thought of a 'washer' in this light before..what a blessing! '

Washing Clothes Recipe' -- imagine having a recipe for this ! ! !

Years ago an Alabama grandmother gave the new bride the following recipe: This is an exact copy as written and found in an old scrapbook - with spelling errors and all.


Build fire in backyard to heat kettle of rain water.

Set tubs so smoke wont blow in eyes if wind is pert.

Shave one hole cake of lie soap in boilin water.

Sort things, make 3 piles 1 pile white, 1 pile colored, 1 pile work britches and rags.

To make starch, stir flour in cool water to smooth, then thin down with boiling water.

Take white things, rub dirty spots on board, scrub hard, and boil, then rub colored don't boil just wrench and starch.

Take things out of kettle with broom stick handle, then wrench, and starch.

Hang old rags on fence.

Spread tea towels on grass.

Pore wrench water in flower bed.

Scrub porch with hot soapy water.

Turn tubs upside down.

Go put on clean dress, smooth hair with hair combs.

Brew cup of tea, sit and rock a spell and count your blessings.

Paste this over your washer and dryer Next time when you think things are bleak, read it again, kiss that washing machine and dryer, and give thanks. First thing each morning you should run and hug your washer and dryer, also your toilet---those two-holers used to get mighty cold! For you non-southerners -wrench means rinse. ;)

Wedding Humor

A young couple were married and then embarked on their honeymoon. When they returned, the bride ran to the phone and called her mother, who asked, "How was your honeymoon, dear?" "Oh, mama!" she replied, "The honeymoon was so wonderful and romantic..." But then, suddenly she burst out crying and said "but, mama, as soon as we returned home, he started using the most horrible language... things I'd never heard before! I mean, all these awful 4-letter words! You've got to come get me and take me home. Please mama!"

"Darling, darling," her mother said, "calm down and tell me, what words could be so awful?" And, the daughter cried "please don't make me tell you, mama! I'm so embarrassed - they're just too awful! Just come and get me, please!"

"Oh, darling, you must tell me what has you so upset... tell me these horrible 4-letter words!" Still sobbing, the bride said, "Oh, mama... words like DUST, WASH, IRON, COOK...!"
