Mandy’s Next Story

A three-legged dog walks into a saloon in the Old West. He sidles up to the bar and announces: “I’m looking for the man who shot my paw.”

                          **************************

A young boy goes off to college, but about 1/3 way through the semester, he has foolishly squandered what money his parents gave him. “Hmmmm,” he wonders, “How am I gonna get more dough?”

Then he gets an idea and calls his father. “Dad,” he says, “you won’t believe the wonders that modern education are coming up with! Why, they actually have a program here that will teach Fido how to talk!” “Why that’s absolutely amazing!” his father says. “How do I get him in that program?” “Just send him down here with $1000,” the boy says, “I’ll get him into the course.”

                         **************************

So, his father sends the dog and the $1000. About 2/3 way through the semester, the money runs out. So, the boy calls his father again. “So, how’s Fido doing, son?” his father asks. “Awesome, dad, he’s talking up a storm,” he says, “but you just won’t believe this – now they have a program here that will teach Fido to READ!”

“READ!?” says his father, “That’s amazing! What do I have to do to get him in that program?” “Just send $2,500, I’ll get him in the class.” So, his father sends the money.

                           *************************

At the end of the semester, the boy has a problem. When he gets home, his father will find out that the dog can neither talk nor read. So, he shoots the dog. When he gets home, his father is all excited. “Where’s Fido? I just can’t wait to hear him talk and listen to him read something!”

“Dad”, the boy says, “I have some grim news. This morning when I got out of the shower, Fido was in the living room kicking back in the recliner reading the morning paper, like he usually does. Then he turned to me and asked “So, is your daddy still messin’ around with that little redhead that lives down on Oak Street?”

                          *****************************

The father says, “I hope you SHOT that lyin’ S. O. B.!”

Moving On

Well, time has come for me to move on. I have spent the past two months grieving my precious Mandy [2], but now is time for me to put away my one true grown kitten to adding a new picture, but always the cat family. So today I would like to also present two pictures of my great grand niece and nephew.

My life until last fall was that I was without children, not even the children of my niece and nephew, since they lived in PA and I was ensconced in NYC. But after my husband died, my niece asked me to move to Indiana to live and to be near to her.

I was  now going to be closer to her own children; maybe, one day they will marry and have chikdren.

Well my grand niece, Nicole married and still lives in Fort Wayne, but my grand nephew, James married and lives in his wife’s state of Minnesota. But they have both had children, and I have met them, loved them, and reune with them as often as possible. The panel beneath this one contains pictures of both my great grand niece, Raegan and my great grand nephew, Maximus. With these introductions, please view the panel below. Presenting Raegan and Max:
