Early Friday Yuk

By Oz_Media ·
Well it is only thursday here, but one can expect Colin to start on about how it's Friday on the other haf of the world. So to refrain from upsetting my dear brothers and sisters so far away;

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. As they lay down for the night, Holmes said:? Watson, look up into the sky and tell me what you see?"

Watson said, "I see millions and millions of stars."

Holmes: "And what does that tell you?"

Watson: "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Theologically, it tells me that God is great and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorogically, it tells me that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"

Holmes: "Somebody stole our tent."

Happy Fursday!

Come on mow Mae

We all know I'm the mad one here without a doubt. Do you honestly want to lump yourself in with people like me?

At a recent Random Breath test on the way back from a 2.00 AM service call

Police Officer "Have You Been Drinking?"

Col "Well Yes I've just spent several hours with a nasty job so I did have a lemonade before I left. After all if you do not drink and fluids you will die in very short order."

Police Officer now slightly irate "When was the last time you drank any alcohol?"

Col "Well I did have a glass of Champaign at my sisters wedding I think that was the last time that I drank any alcohol."

Police Officer now very irate "Exactly when was that?"

Col "Well I'm not really sure her eldest is now 9 years old and it was well before that so I would imagine that it was somewhere like 11 - 12 years ago."

Police Officer now really pissed off "Just blow into this NOW!"

Police Officer "Well there is no alcohol in your blood stream so you are free to go."

Col "Sorry I forgot I did have a glass of wine at a dinner party at a friends house but that was at least 2 years ago now does that count?"

That's funny. I'd be afraid to do that here, I'd end up getting beaten with a flashlight.

Mae generally at that time of the night

I just say "Yes Sir" but I had, had a very bad day and then to be called back because someone broke a power lead which took ages to find in the wee small hours of the morning I was just a bit peeved.

The Cop was obviously only filling in time as well because of the way he approached me and the fact that I was the only car that passed him while he was parked on the side of the road might have had something to do with it.

But for the 30 minutes that he held me up for not one single car passed us. He did of course try to find a defect in the car and I really Pissed him off when I pointed out that the car he was driving was un-roadworthy because the left hand front parking light didn't work. Then when he asked me to turn on the parkers I asked which side do you want?

There are a few advantages of driving my wifes 73 Merc around and the fact that you can chose which side to have the parkers switched on are one of them.

In the end I just gave him a business card and said I've got an early start today and I need to get some sleep so I'm going home. He turned up two days latter with a computer repair and we have been friends ever since.

Depends on what you mean. If, by rates, you mean where do they rate, then I would have to say pretty high. I love a twisted sense of humor. If by rates, you mean an hourly rate...well, 29.95?

I will be seeing friends on Sea Island (a Vancouver Airport community) this weekend, living at the foot of the runway they will get a good chuckle I'm sure.

Have a great weekend, OM

Thanks, All we're going to do is sit and watch the snow fall this weekend.

I thought I apparently lived in the land of ice and snow (Zeppelin tune coming on, uh oh!).

We've had some rain but but's been so stuffy hot too, something to do with a tropicsl front coming in from Hawaii or something.

One week I was curling up to hibernate at night, the next i am kicking off too many covers.

It's just so cool here after the rain becaue there are just millions of shades of green around, geez I sure hope I don't end up getting antsy and moving back to the mainland, I doubt it though, camping is just around the corner now. :)

you can keep

by maecuff In reply to BRRRR!

your camping. My idea of roughing it is no room service. School will be out tomorrow, 2-3 of my employees won't make it in because of the roads. I can't for the life of me remember why I took this job when I swore the next time I moved it would be South.

You can have it either way here

by Oz_Media In reply to you can keep

A nice hotel is always mere kilometers from winderness. You can hang out in a decent hotel with a spa and still be on Long Beach, that's where a lot of companies here have annual meeting weekend retreats and stuff, cross the road and you are in thick forest.
A half hour from there is a remote lake, mountains etc., then a town with a Holiday Inn or Execuxtive Inn again, then lakes and mountains again and so on and so on all the way across and up and down the island.

Take your pick, if you want city, there's that too...just minutes from another lake, seafront or mountain.

Tis an odd but pretty place and everything is within reach without you seeing it.

Behind the times

by jardinier In reply to Early Friday Yuk

When the time in sensible cities like Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, is GMT + 10, US/Canda Pacific time is GMT - 8.

So you guys will ALWAYS be behind the REAL world.
