A Prayer For All Bloggers

Every single evening, As I'm lying here in bed, This tiny little Prayer, Keeps running through my head: God bless all my family, Wherever they may be, Keep them warm and safe from harm, For they're so close to me. And God, there is one more thing, I wish that you could do; Hope you don't mind me asking, Please bless my computer too. Now I know that it's unusual, to Bless a motherboard, But listen just a second, While I explain it to you, Lord. You see, that little metal box, Holds more than odds and ends; Inside those small compartments, Rest so many of my friends. I know so much about them, By the kindness that they give, And this little scrap of metal, Takes me in to where they live. Please take an extra minute, From your duties up above, To bless those in my address book, That's filled with so much love. Wherever else this prayer may reach, To each and every friend, Bless each e-mail inbox, And each person who hits 'send'. Amen

Happy Mother's Day

To my dear wife, my daughter and daughter-in-law who are great Mothers. I was going through some old "treasures" and found this poem written by my daughter to her Mum (when an early teenager). Below is the front page of the booklet card.

It says - Happy Mothers Day to My Mum! The best that Ever held the paddle!!

then goes on to say in the inside:

To Mum,

A Poem by Me for Mum.

Some Mums are Old & Dreary

They Moan & Groan all Day.

Some Mums are Sweet & Patient

Perfectly Gorgeous (thats what they say)

Some Mums are fierce & horrible

And scare you half to death,

And some are even meaner,

They have Smoke and Fire for breath!!

But my Mum's not old & yucky,

Or patient or fierce or horrible.

Or gorgeos or mean or a pain,

Cause my mum is the Greatest,

So I'd just like to say.

To a mum who is JUST RIGHT.

"The happiest of Mothers Days!"

Love (Mum-ee with a "y" at the end)

Her brother probably forget to get a card so he signed it too!

Love Wolf(y)

All the Capitals and Puntuation just as it was written (in running writing)

I'm using the church's laptop - very difficult keyboard - to send this as my computer seems to have lost the Bigpond Modem's driver, I think.
So until I get that fixed I'm off the air. We are also off to Kingscliff next week - Sunday to Wednesday to visit a good friend there.
So until I'm back on air - Abyssinia

Guess NQwolf & I are the Dumb Ones!

Well, seem's as though my son (NQwolf) married into quite an intelligent family. Both Chimera & Mummy McTavish worked out the answer to the below quiz. Chimera's answer was not spot on, but she did work out that without the first letter of each word, what was left was a Palindrome, so -
With the mixing of the genes of our two families, things bode well for Lion & Dragon's future.
(Yes, Possum Princess, you can now have the coffee and chocolates)

Congratulations Mum-me!

Yes, Mum-me got the the correct anwer to the quiz, but did anyone find the answer in the blog itself? All you had to do was left click your mouse and scroll or drag it over the space at the bottom of the blog and all would have been revealed.

Take a Coffee Break and Try this Quiz.

C IF U can figure it out?
I could not figure it out and had to look at the answer.
Especially for all you who have good word skills (unlike me).
See if you can figure out what these words have in common?
1 Banana
2 Dresser
3 Grammar
4 Potato
5 Revive
6 Uneven
7 Assess
Look at each word carefully. (You'll kick yourself when you discover the answer.)
Send me your thoughts and I'll give you the answer in a day or two (or you may even find the answer yourself somewhere in my blog space) Good Luck !!
Here is the answer: No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters.
Correct Answer: In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.

NQwolf Doesn't Like Prawns Either!

I'm told that my No.1 son, NQwolf, doesn't like prawns either. (I wonder what happened to my other sons?) Here is a picture of him - obviously a throwback to his original roots (we St. Bernard's were bred from these wild ones). Notice the eagle, proving he was born in USA, the national animal emblem of that great nation.

I guess when he was a young'n we couldn't afford prawns, so he never got a taste for them. However there is still hope because I never really got the taste for them until I got older. Mummy McTavish says she likes them with garlic, but on this issue I must agree with NQwolf - garlic is the ruination of any food that is tainted with it (even a little bit). HB from "the Aussie half-dozen" would agree with Mrs McTavish - I've never seen anyone prepare his garlic prawns with as much garlic as he does and then be able to eat them - phewww!!! (I've never tried them with honey, but that sounds like it would be quite scrumptious.)

Of course, all is said with 'touch in cheek', we are all entitled to our own preferences in food without fear or favour - some people even eat dogs!!??!! - which came from wolves.
