Grin and Share It

mangle-o-mania

And here we go again 

with the mangle-o-mania.

Lots of gigabytes again.

Yahooo!

Here comes the firewall again.

Big Eyes

At first I thought that I had too much to drink,.

But then I realized that I don’t drink.

And after I gave her directions to where she was going

I did mention to her quietly

that before she goes out in public like this.

she should make sure that

she is wearing a mask.

 

A Blessed Naighbor

It is a blessed summer day,

I mused,

as I subserviently stood over the spot that marked

the physical distancing spot.

I was actually third in line to hit the register

at the Walmart Cashier’s plexiglass cubicle.

Some lady was holding up the line

because she was having some problems

paying with her credit card. 

It seems that the card was so new

that it has not been activated yet.

After much fuss, the tall burly lady in front of me

offered to pay  for what she bought.

This kindly gesture did not amaze me because

Canadians would do this act at the drop of a hat.

But I did slid to her and said that I would have enjoyed

that much privilege if she happened to be my neighbor.

The lady in trouble courteously refused the offer and

proceeded to count her cash, 

which in the end did not meet the grocery balance.

So the kindly lady in front of me ended up

paying for the balance shortage.

Before this was over, I again slid closer

and asked for her name.

She replied with that much message in her eyes—

“Montana”.

And then I realized

that she was in truth a neighbor

and the privilege is in truth,

mine.

 

Red Bikini

The red bikini is given to you as a reward for your good techie work. The wearer, however, is not for you to keep, as she proved too expensive for me to handle. also, yours will be the problem of persuading her to give  it up.

Q _ Tip 7 For Filipinos Only

Here is where the all-purpose cure all of the people

come into liberal use–the Vicks Vaporub.

This can be rubbed, inhaled, applied, vaporized,

and even calm people with dementia by applying it

on the forehead.

Or even stop sexually-active men.

This bottle can be tied on a string

and wrapped around the waist like a holster

for the fast-draw artists.

Q -Tip 5 Improvised Masks

I did say that masks can be made

out of common household items,

from yours or your girl friend’s.

Notice that two more masks 

can be made from 

what the horse is wearing.

Multiplying Relatives

Lots of cousins do I have

and they multiply.

Whenever I meet someone I know

I introduce the girl that I am with

as my cousin.

My cousins, they multiply.

Fast!

Marcelino Pan Y Vino

 marcelino001

Pablito Calvo

 played the role of Marcelino in the screen adaptation of “The Miracle of MarcelinobyJose Ma. Sanchez Silva.

This is the story of a baby who was found in front of the gates of a monastery. The monks reared him up after nobody in town would like to accept him as an orphan.

When he was six years old, his curiosity led him to the attic to see the Crucified Christ. Later on Marcelino brought this man on the cross some food and wine which were of course pilfered from the monastery kitchen.

To make the story short, the man on the cross granted Marcelino’s wish which was to see his mother. And right from the very eyes of the eavesdropping monks, the man on the cross sent Marcelino to heaven.

Another Cold Spell

Too cold again for Edmonton.

Minus 35 degrees .

It is so cold here that the horses are unable to move

before they are thawed out

by turning some hair dryers on them.

Where the heck is the promised global warming?

Quebec’s Mea Culpa

SO!

The French guy Blanchet

seeks to come to Alberta to talk to Kenny.

What for? Mea Culpa?

Is he coming to refund all the oil money Quebec received from Alberta?

Is he coming to stop the Province from removing the French language

from the Alberta curriculum?

Is he coming to ask to join the Premier’s meeting?

Is he coming to ask Alberta not to defer the equalization payment?

Or is he coming for a look see at what Alberta grog tastes like?

Whatever his reason is, he should remember to speak in English!

(Maybe he just realized that somebody squealed that Quebec

had surplus budgets in all those years

that this province received equalization payments claiming

it was a have-not province.)

To Each His Own

The Wild Rose must remain

with the sun and the rain

or its lovely promise won’t come true.

To Each His Own

I found my own

and my own is mine.

If a flame is to grow

there must be some fuel

To open each door there’s a key

I need you I know

I can’t let you go

your oil means too much to me.

More lips must insist

that you cannot wexit,

(ah heck! you know what it’s meant).

American Convoy Fired Upon.

Turkish troops fired upon an American convoy.

The Americans are maybe making the effort

to resupply the Kurdish troops in Syria.

Or maybe that was a test patrol

for a look-see if they are still “untouchable”.

All Hands On Deck

After the Austerity Budget is drummed in

the call to assemble resounds

all over the Alberta ship—-

“All hands on deck,

all hands on deck.

We are in for a blow.

Lash the riggings.

Lower the sails.

Clear the masts.

Avast  ye  swabs,

batten down the hatches,

 make ready the pumps.

For Heaven’s sake

pass the grog!”

Commando Cat

It’s the same RCMP-trained dog.

This time he is up against the Commando Cat!

RCMP Trained

New Kid On The Block

From Jerwin and Teth

comes a new kid on the block.

“Now where the heck did I put that bottle?”

Heat Wave?

What heat wave?

We even had a hailstorm last night

that broke some windshields around these parts.

In truth I still have not found a good enough reason

to turn my heaters off.

French Toast

The people of France

is experiencing some heat wave for the moment

giving rise to more jovial family gatherings

at breakfast time

that offers the lasting favorite

of French Toasts
