While watching the birds go about their busyness of finding food this morning, this poem formed in my mind about how some things never change and how some things do.
A BROADER RANGE
As the birds were having breakfast
tiny bugs were being eaten,
floors were being swept
while rugs were being beaten.
The men about their business
were bringing home the pay
while women reared the children
whose job it was to play.
Birds still eat bugs for breakfast
the housework still gets done
the men still go to business
the children still have fun.
The moral of the story is
though some things do not change
the women in society
have gained a broader range.
Sometimes I just can’t help myself when it comes to sharing. Here are some more jokes I found on the Internet. Happy Saturday.

What did one toilet say to the other? You look flushed.
My boss just texted me: “Send me one of your funny jokes!” I texted him back: “I’m busy working. I’ll send one later.” “That’s hilarious,” he said. “Send another one!”
What is worse than raining cats and dogs? Hailing taxis!
Why aren’t koalas actual bears? The don’t meet the koalafications
Where do beef burgers go to dance? The meatball.

No groans please.
I’d love to be in on it but include me out.
The deafening silence was heard by all.
It’s an open secret that I love jumbo shrimps.
I’m clearly confused by passive aggressive behavior.
If you fall and break your legs, don’t come running to me.
I’m not sure but I can give you a definite perhaps.
Thank God I’m an atheist.
It’s absolutely impossible, but it has possibilities.
You get the idea; now you can have fun with oxymorons too, or you may accept to decline the suggestion.
This is an all time favorite song of mine because it gives joy, is uplifting, and speaks my mind. Happy Sunday.
Surely many of us are at our wits end having coped with the Corona Virus for many weeks. Have you ever wondered where that phrase came from…wits end? Believe it or not, it comes from the Bible. I’ve been reading the Psalms this month and read this in Psalm 107:27: They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits’ end. And verse twenty-eight goes on to say, Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.
It’s fun to learn where different sayings originate and it’s reassuring to know that God will bring us out of our distress. Happy Wednesday.
This colorful duo caught my eye yesterday. It is so nice to see their affection for each other. If they were my pets I would name them Bill and Coo. What would you name them? Happy Saturday.
Does your home sometimes remind you of a zoo…or do you like to go to the zoo? Either way why not spend this Saturday having fun monkeying around…Happy Saturday.
(This photo found its way into my inbox last weekend.)
How many of us realize just how many faces we wear in a day? It’s fun thinking about them but I’m not going to list them. Suffice to say put on your happy face and have a Happy Saturday.
Are you fortunate enough to have a happy happening in your life this weekend? For me it is going to be a multicolored weekend of fun and family, feasting and celebrations. When I saw the picture of this tree it made me think of how blessed I am to have such a colorful life. Happy Saturday!
Sunday…another day to give thanks, especially on our Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. Thanks for family, friends, food, fun, safety, blessings and all good things.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
