"A TROJAN A DAY..."

WATERING A HUMMINGBIRD FEEDER.....DON'T ASK!

THINKING YOU ARE WATERING THE YARD WHEN YOU ARE ACTUALLY SPRAYING "ROUND-UP"...DON'T ASK."

THE RESULTS- "ROUND-UP" IS A PHENOMINAL PRODCT. (DIDN'T REALLY HAPPEN, BUT A FUNNY THOUGHT).


The Road not Taken

Robert Frost




Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
and sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
and looked down one as far as I could
to where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
and having perhaps the better claim
because it was grassy and wanted wear;
though as for that, the passing there
had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
in leaves no feet had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference




MY ALL TIME FAVORITE POEM. IF FACED WITH A DECISION TODAY OF THIS SORT---
TAKE THE ONE LESS TRAVELED BY..AND SEE WHERE IT LEADS!



AND FINALLY TO THE "TROJAN" AS PROMISED.......


Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and
had never been married.
She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.
One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed
him into her quaint sitting room.
She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.
As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister
noticed a
CUT -glass bowl sitting on top of it.
The bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated, of
all things, a condom!

When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat.

The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of
water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he
could no longer resist.
"Miss Beatrice", he said, "I wonder if you would tell me about
this?" pointing to the bowl.
"Oh, yes," she replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking
through the Park a few months ago and I found this little package on the
ground.
The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and
that it would prevent the spread of disease.
Do you know I haven't had the flu all winter."
