Friday Funnie: Everything I Need to Know . . .

. . . I Learned From Noah's Ark
(Anonymous)
1. Don't miss the boat.
2. Remember that we are all in the same boat.
3. Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
4. Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
5. Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
6. Build your future on high ground.
7. For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
8. Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs
9. When you're stressed, float a while.
10. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

See a life-size replica of Noah's Ark in the Netherlands. Impressive!

  1. Cute Friday funny today, Ferree. The caregiving books I've been reading lately stress the importance of laughter for both the caregiver and patient, so I'm more conscious of getting my funny fix lately.

  2. I'm glad you checked in for a grin, Jane. This may sound kind of strange, but at my first husband's funeral I actually asked people to tell me jokes--not that day, but if they'd not hesitate to tell me the latest I thought I'd sure need them. And it helped break the ice so people at least knew I wanted to laugh and have fun again. So I guess I kind of do this page as a tribute to that time and Bruce, who could tell a joke with the best of them--that is if he didn't get to laughing too hard first. :)
    But it's good to know laughter is highly recommended! God bless!

  3. You had a wise instinct at a very tough time, Ferree.

  4. Absolutely, Ferree! At both my Mom's and husband's memorial services, I asked several people to each write down a funny story about Mom/John. Most of them thought I was asking them to read it as well, but I said, "no, someone else will read them, I won't put you through that!" Both times, there was more laughter than tears. At my Mom's, people didn't laugh at first... then as the stories were read, everyone loosened up a bit. At my husband's, because he was always the life of the party, everyone was prepared to laugh. It was great!

  5. Thank you both for the affirmation!Kelly, do you suppose Bruce & John have met yet? I'll bet Heaven's going to need a rowdy section when they do! We're going to have a blast when we get there!

  6. Exactly, Ferree! I know you can't get into trouble in Heaven, but maybe those two will push the limits!
