Nothing  pops  into  my  head  to  write

So I’ll just stop here and  say  goodnight

A Bit O’ Irish Humor   1 comment


With the onset o’ St. Patrick’s Day I thought to leave you wi’ a bit o’ humor t’night. 


Father O’ Malley answers the phone.

‘Hello, is this Father O’Malley?’ 
‘It is’
‘This is the Inland Revenue Service, income tax department. Can you help us?’ 
‘I can.’ 
‘Do you know a Ted Houlihan?’ 
‘I do’
‘Is he a member of your congregation?’

He is’
‘Did he donate $10,000 to the church?’

He will.’

÷÷÷ Winter Sprites ÷÷÷   2 comments

Not a picture  in black  and  white

The  Snow Queen did  this  just  for  spite

Knowing I’d spurn her as I have before

She  left all this outside  my door.


And  to show all that  her  heart  was  pure

Frost  Princess  dropped the  temperature

From 10 degrees  to  a minus  5

Keeping  me indoors  to stay  alive

The Day After   Leave a comment


See the source image


‘Twas the day after New Years

And out on the deck

The thermometer must have broken

“Now what the heck???”

I picked up my trusty electronic phone

And there what I saw chilled me to the bone

And there what I saw what I couldn’t have seen

The thermometer read MINUS 15

The snow was piled high out there on the drive

And I thought this must be the most terrible dread

And, when I woke and found, I was really alive

I thought I might be better off dead

Closed the blind on the window and got back into bed

And pulled the covers up over my head

 Snow Queen, Frost Maiden, Old Man Winter, how did they dare

Visit my world with such outlandish nightmare


Ah yes, my friends, the “polar vortex”, “El Nino”, and “La Nina” have all gathered to party with us this winter…, and from the looks of things they intend to stay for a while.  Here at the southern tip of Lake Michigan we haven’t seen a temp even near 20 degrees (above, that is) for nearly 3 weeks, and snow nearly every day in amounts more than is being forecast.  To conclude this little New Years rant I leave you with only one little question…..

What ever happened to Global Warming ?????




Laugh a Little !   1 comment


With all the violence and depravity in the news now, isn’t it time for a little levity ????


I had a knock at my door earlier, it was a policeman…
“Mr Cook?”
“Yes,” I replied.
“I’m afraid your dog has just been reported to have chased someone on a bike.”
I said, “That’s a crock ! – my dog doesn’t have a bike!”


This past year saw the coldest winter since records began

for countries in the northern hemisphere.

It’s been so cold that numerous politicians were actually

 seen with their hands in their own pockets.


Diet Day 1: Just removed all the fattening food from my house, it was delicious.


If con is the opposite of pro, it must mean Congress is the opposite of progress?


Why was the jazz movie rated R?
Too much sax and violins.


My friend boasted he had the body of a Greek god.

I had to explain to him where Buddha actually came from.
