SOME CUTE MOTHER’S DAY THOUGHTS

 Son: Dad, do you know the difference between a pack of cookies and a pack of elephants?

Dad: No.
Son: Then it’s a good thing Mom does the grocery shopping!

 

A: I have the perfect son.
B: Does he smoke?
A: No, he doesn’t.
B: Does he drink whiskey?
A: No, he doesn’t.
B: Does he ever come home late?
A: No, he doesn’t.
B: I guess you really do have the perfect son. How old is he?
A: He will be six months old next Wednesday.

 

 “If your kids are giving you a headache, follow the directions on the aspirin bottle, especially the part that says ‘keep away from children’”

 

I saw Mummy asking Santa why he didn’t put his dishes in the dishwasher.

 

Daughter: Mum, what’s it like to have the greatest daughter in the world?
Mum: I don’t know dear, you’d have to ask Grandma.

 

What three words solve Dad’s every problem?
Ask your mother.

 

THE HISTORY OF PANDEMICS. Nicholas LePan presents an interesting timeline of historical pandemics online at https://www.visualcapitalist.com/history-of-pandemics-deadliest/

 

INTERESTING LITERARY THOUGHTS:

  • People who knew nothing did not suddenly discover the truth just because they were frightened. They became people who made things up. The more desperate the witnesses, the more false signposts began to clutter the road to understanding

 

  • Tell the truth to everyone you meet; scroll all the walls of headquarters of the truth. Harass people until they listen.

 

  • It doesn’t matter what really happens what matters is what people believe

— Ruth Downey, Semper Fidelis

A PTSD POEM.

You find that ever since the war

you don’t know what you’re fighting for

but there is a feeling deep inside

of anger that you cannot hide!

Every day you try to cope

maybe your only source of hope;

yet, haunted by the horrid dreams

you can’t ignore those anguished screams

… From a poem by warrior – and PTSD survivor – K W
