Happy Friday

Okay, I've been tagged. I usually don't do these because they tend to be so LONG but this one is short and I would hate to crush Katschi!

To travel the world (and have someone pay me to do it!)
A loving relationship with respect both ways
A bigger garden!
To play the piano (better than I do now--I know, practice!)

5 Things You're Really Into

There, my first tag assignment completed and it was pretty easy!

I got another cute joke in my email and I'm sure you may have read it before but it's a hoot even the second, third time around!

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.


'If at first you don't succeed, do it the way your wife told you!'--

*Scientific proof that the joke above may truer than we women already suspected? Check out this article
Thanks to Sharon for sharing that.

I've just found out there is scientific basis for your "3 Men on a Hike Joke" -- apparently latest research suggests women are better at problem solving!

Thanks for doing the meme. I normally wouldn't have done it either but it was Suzi who asked me & it was short.
The joke was hilarious because it's TRUE!

LOVE the joke! What a great way to start my Friday!

Your meme response about always wanting a career, not just a job, struck a chord with me. I've had those same thoughts all my life...

you carry your passport with you? I'm always afraid I'll misplace mine and not be able to find it when I need it!

I like the little meme....we get to know a bit more about people! Which reminds me, how is the writing coming along? And the job business? Those are both topics that I'm dealing with so I'm curious!
