Promises outrun performances - make
Here’s wishing you a light and
easy weekend, and a smile or two along the way.
FOR TWO FRIENDS
Sheri get us off to a fine
start with this thoughtful sentiment.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had
shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities
had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said,
"Now don't get mad at me. I know we've been friends for a long time, but I
just can't think of your name. I've thought and thought, but I can't
remember it. Please tell me what your name is."
Her friend glared at her. For several minutes she just stared and glared
Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?"

ITEMS WE DECIDED NOT TO USE DEPT:
Lots of “Pass It Along”
candidates pass through the E Box that for one reason or the other I
decide, ‘no way will I pass this along.’ Sometimes it’s an old chestnut
that’s been making the rounds forever & I just say ‘poof, you’re the
weakest link’ and out it goes. Often an item is too naughty! After all
there is at least one Nun who reads this Flight Plan regularly! This one
was sent from across the pond from our girl in England, Nicky Williams

NO SEX PLEASE, WE’RE BRITISH
and a woman were having drinks when they got into an argument about who
enjoyed sex more.
The man said, "Men obviously enjoy sex more than women. Why do you think
we're so obsessed with getting laid?"
"That doesn't prove anything," the woman countered. "Think about this:
when your ear itches and you put your finger in it and wiggle it around,
then pull it out, which feels better-your ear or your finger?"

A SHAGGY ROOSTER STORY
Ralph Jones had this uncle . .
RING THEM BELLS!
was young my uncle was in the fertilized egg business. He had several
hundred young layers, called pullets, and 8 or 10 roosters whose job was
to fertilize the eggs.
My Uncle Dudley kept records, and any rooster or pullet that
didn't perform well went into the pot and was replaced. Now, this took an
awful lot of time. So, when my uncle saw a set of eight tiny bells that
each rang a different tone, he promptly bought them.
He glued a piece of foam rubber to each clapper shaft so the bell wouldn't
ring except when violently shaken. He hung a bell on each rooster's neck
and went and mixed a Mint Julep. Now he could sit on the porch and sip
while filling out an efficiency report on the roosters by listening to the
different tones of the
bells and marking down each encounter.
My uncle's favorite rooster was old Brewster. Brewster was a fine
specimen, but his bell didn't ring all morning. Uncle went to investigate.
Several roosters were chasing pullets, bells a-ringing. Brewster had his
bell in his beak so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his
job and walk on to the next one.
Chagrined at first, Uncle was soon so proud of Brewster he entered him in
the county fair. Brewster was an overnight sensation. They not only
awarded him the No Bell Prize but also the Pullet Surprise...
(That’ll be enough out of you this week, Ralph.)
Tomorrow is Sentimental Saturday and time for another ‘Love Letter Unsent"
and on Sunday there’s a request from Agent Scully herself, the talented
Gillian Anderson. Sleep warm.
