BACK TO SAY HI"




The Letter


A father passing by his son's bedroom, was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up.



Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, 'Dad.' With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands.



'Dear, Dad. It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mum and you.



I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her, because of all her piercing's, tattoos, her tight motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am.

But it's not only the passion Dad she's pregnant,Stacy said that we will be very happy She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter.

We share a dream of having many more children Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't, really hurt anyone.



We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.

In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better She sure deserves it!! Don't worry Dad, I'm 15, and I know how to take care of myself.



Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your many grandchildren love, your son, Joshua.

P.S. Dad, none of the above is true I'm over at Jason's house I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that's on my desk.



I love you! Call when it is safe for me to come home

Three Men On A Hike



Three men were hiking through a forest when they came upon a large raging, violent river needing to get to the other side, the first man prayed:



"God, please give me the strength to cross the river." Poof! ... God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice.

After witnessing that, the second man prayed: "God, please give me strength and the tools to cross the river"



Poof! ... God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and strong legs and he was able to row across in about an hour after almost capsizing once.



Seeing what happened to the first two men, the third man prayed: "God, please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to cross the river"

Poof! .... He was turned into a woman. She checked the map, hiked one hundred yards up stream and walked across the bridge.

An Australian Poem





The sun was hot already - it was only 8 o'clock the cocky took off in his Ute, to go and check his stock.

He drove around the paddocks checking wethers, ewes and lambs,the float valves in the water troughs, the windmills on the dams.

He stopped and turned a windmill on to fill a water tank and saw a ewe down in the dam, a few yards from the bank.

"Typical bloody sheep," he thought, "they've got no common sense,"They won't go through a gateway but they'll jump a bloody fence.

"The ewe was stuck down in the mud, he knew without a doubt she'd stay there 'til she carked it if he didn't get her out.

But when he reached the water's edge, the startled ewe broke free and in her haste to get away, began a swimming spree.

He reckoned once her fleece was wet, the weight would drag her down if he didn't rescue her, the stupid sod would drown.

Her style was unimpressive, her survival chances slim he saw no other option, he would have to take a swim.

He peeled his shirt and singlet off, his trousers, boots and socks and as he couldn't stand wet clothes, he also shed his jocks.

He jumped into the water and away that cocky swam he caught up with her, somewhere near the middle of the dam.

The ewe was quite evasive, she kept giving him the slip he tried to grab her sodden fleece but couldn't get a grip.

At last he got her to the bank and stopped to catch his breath she showed him little gratitude for saving her from death.


She took off like a Bondi tram around the other side he swore next time he caught that ewe he'd hang her bloody hide.

Then round and round the dam they ran, although he felt quite puffed he still thought he could run her down, she must be nearly stuffed.

The local stock rep came along, to pay a call that day he knew this bloke was on his own, his wife had gone away.

He didn't really think he'd get fresh scones for morning tea but nor was he prepared for what he was about to see.

He rubbed his eyes in disbelief at what came into view for running down the catchment came this frantic-looking ewe.

And on her heels in hot pursuit and wearing not a stitchthe farmer yelling wildly "Come back here, you lousy bitch!"

The stock rep didn't hang around, he took off in his car the cocky's reputation has been damaged near and far.

So bear in mind the Work Safe rule when next you check your flocks spot the hazard, assess the risk, and always wear your jocks!

Let Him Dig




An old man and woman were married for many years, even though they hated each other when they had a confrontation, screaming and yelling could be heard deep into the night.



The old man would shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life! " Neighbours feared him.

They believed he practiced black magic, because of the many strange occurrences that took place in their neighbourhood the old man liked the fact that he was feared.

To everyone's relief he died of a heart attack when he was 98, his wife had a closed casket at the wake after her neighbours, concerned for her safety, asked.

"Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way up and out of the grave and come back to haunt you for the rest of your life?"

The wife put down her drink and said, "Let him dig. I had him buried upside down....
