Hump Day Humor: Time to Go!

A man was seen fleeing down the hall of the hospital just before his operation.
“What’s the matter?” he was asked.
He said, “I heard the nurse say, ‘It’s a very simple operation, don’t worry, I’m sure it will be all right.'”
“She was just trying to comfort you, what’s so frightening about that?”
“She wasn’t talking to me.  She was talking to the doctor!”

Come Caress the Deepest Parts of Me

The Deepest Parts of Me

Flowers say

To hummingbirds and bees,

“Come caress

The deepest parts of me.

My perfumed petals

Are open wide.

Please fly to me

And come inside.”

–Russ Towne

 

May your days be filled with blessings.

With love,

Russ

Rite of Passage

I saw this story at http://www.mikeysFunnies.com:

Do you know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth’s rite of passage?
His dad takes him into the forest blindfolded and leaves him alone. He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not take off the blindfold until the ray of sun shines through it.
He is all by himself.
He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, he is a MAN.
He cannot tell the other boys of this experience. Each lad must come into his own manhood.
The boy in our story was, naturally, terrified. He could hear all kinds of noise. Beasts were all around him. Maybe even a human would hurt him. The wind blew the grass and earth and it shook his stump. But he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold.
It would be the only way he could be a man.
Finally, after a horrific night, the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold. It was then that he saw his father sitting on the stump next to him – at watch the entire night.
With love,

A Ring Funny

ben-white-128604-unsplashOne day while driving through a neighborhood near his church, Pastor John saw a little boy on a front porch, struggling trying to reach the doorbell.

Feeling like he needed to help the young fellow, he stopped his car and got out to help. He pressed the doorbell for him and said, in a teaching way, “Now what do we do?”
“Now,” the boy said, laughing, “we run!”

I Can Be Such a Slow Learner Sometimes!

The long-awaited sequel to my Bestseller “The Duck Who Flew Upside Down” has finally arrived on Amazon as a Softcover book! I’m such a publishing genius that it only took me THREE YEARS to realize, DUH, I ought to create a sequel to the book that often outsells all of my other children’s books combined. What can I say? I’m a slow learner! It’s now available in three formats and will soon be in all five. Anyway, here it is!
