Since he runs a pawnshop, I decided to ask a friend of mine to appraise my grandfather’s violin. “Old fiddles aren’t worth much, I’m afraid,” he explained.

“What makes it a fiddle and not a violin?” I asked.

“If you’re buying it from me, it’s a violin. If I’m buying it from you, it’s a fiddle.”

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Last Minute TurkeyIt’s the day before Thanksgiving and the butcher is just locking up when a man pounds on the door.  “Please let me in,” says the man, “I forgot to buy a turkey and my wife will kill me if I don’t come home with one.”

“OK” says the butcher.  “Let me see what’s left.” He goes into the freezer and discovers that there’s only one scrawny turkey left.  He brings it out to show the man.

“That one’s too skinny.  What else have you got”?  says the man. The butcher takes the bird back into the freezer and waits a few minutes then brings the same turkey back out to the man.

“Oh no,” says the man, “that one doesn’t look any better.  You better give me both of them.”

Last year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving.

Man, you should have seen the people scatter in the meat department!

My husband, a computer-systems trouble-shooter, rode with me in my new car one afternoon. He had been working on a customer’s computer all morning and was still tense from the session.

When I stopped for a traffic light, I made sure to leave a safe distance from the stop line to keep oncoming drivers from hitting the car.

I couldn’t help but laugh when my husband impatiently waved at me to move the car forward while saying, “Scroll up, honey.”

Montreal Canadiens logoOn a tour of Florida, the Pope took a couple of days off his itinerary to visit the coastline on an impromptu sightseeing trip.

His 4X4 Popemobile was driving along the beautiful shoreline (an area where Canadian tourists frequently visit) when there was an enormous commotion heard just off the headland. He drove closer to see what it was. Upon approaching the scene, he saw a man in the water wearing a Montreal Canadiens hockey jersey, struggling frantically to free himself from the jaws of a 25-foot shark!

At that moment, a speedboat containing three men wearing Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys, roared into view from around the point. Immediately, one of the men took aim and fired a harpoon into the shark’s ribs, immobilizing it instantly. The other two reached out and pulled the Montreal fan from the water and then, using long clubs, beat the shark to death. They then bundled the bleeding, semi-conscious man into the boat along with the dead shark and then prepared for a hasty retreat when they heard frantic shouting from the shore. It was the Pope summoning them to the beach.

After they reached shore, the Pope praised them for the rescue and said, “I give you my blessing for your brave actions. I had heard that there was bitter hatred in your country between the fans of the Leafs and the Canadiens, but now I have seen with my own eyes this is not true. I can see that your society is a truly enlightened example of true harmony and companionship that could serve as a model on which other countries, like this one, could follow.” He blessed them all and drove off in a cloud of dust.

As he departed, the harpooner asked the others, “Who was that?”

“That,” one answered, “was his Holiness the Pope. He is in direct contact with God and has access to all of God’s wisdom”.

“Well,” the harpooner replied, “he doesn’t know a thing about shark fishing!! Is the bait holding up okay, or do we need to get another one?”

The Law of Parenthood

There is the Law of Gravity – and then, there is the Law of Parenthood

– A child’s behavior will improve in proportion to the distance she is away from the parent.

– Two is equal to two, except when referring to time. Two minutes of tantrum lasts 20 times as long as two minutes of quiet time.

– The choice of a preschooler’s best friend corresponds directly to the distance the friend lives from your house.

– A child’s enjoyment of a popular entertainment will be inversely proportionate to the parent’s enjoyment.

– The chance of a surprise visit by your parents-in-law is directly proportional to the size of the mess in your home.

– A child will always eat exactly what she has loved for the past year unless it is the only food in the fridge.

– The ease with which a toddler acquires the ability to say a word increases with its likelihood to embarrass a sailor.
