Here's my latest "Friday Offering"

Welcome to the Bob Hambleton web site,  

Scroll down to this WEEK'S FRIDAY OFFERING

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here’s the latest "Offering" for 05-07-2019

Greetings,

Still taking things easy but steady progress.

     Despite the fact that we are both still recovering from our medical afflictions, we’ve both made steady progress.  Helen managed a ‘day-out’ with her sisters and I have, at last sent the manuscript of “Sarina’s Farmer” to the publishers.  It’s going to take a few weeks to go through the ‘review, critique and proof copy stages’ but I hope that it will be published and available for sale in a couple of months.

A pleasant “Day-Out” together.

     Delayed by a day, due to Helen’s shopping trip with her sisters, mentioned above, we managed to get our ‘day-out’ on Friday, (hence the lateness of this Offering’s publication.)  We decided to go out for lunch with Helen’s mum and she suggested that we returned to Lugton in North Ayrshire top visit The Canny Man.

     This is one of our favourite venues not just for the good food and pleasant environment it provides but also because the trip down from Erskine or Paisley is a lovely trip.

  Enough, to business:-

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Graffiti

From the Italian word “graffito”  =  a scratch, first used to describe Pompeii wall markings.

            “Peals of Laughter, Screams of Joy, I was here before Kilroy.  Shut your mouth, shut your face, Kilroy built this ruddy place“  -  Gents toilet, Tring

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some  more of  The World’s Stupidest Signs

(Some of these may be duplicates of previous examples from different sources.)

            “Manure Please Drive-in.“  -  Outside a farm.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Notable Quotations

            “I could eat alphabet soup and shit better lyrics than that,“  -  Johnny Mercer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Best One-liners.

            Doctor's office: All our records are electronic now just fill out these 12 forms.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Interesting little titbits

  • Ninety percent of New York City cabbies are recently arrived immigrants.
  • In 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all of the world's nuclear weapons combined.
  • Turtles can breathe through their butts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All the best,

Bob, Dad, Uncle or Cousin (which ever applies!)

 The origins of my “Friday Offering”

    Some years ago a friend started sending out the odd joke (some were very odd) which he called “Something for Friday.”  Since I had friends and relations that he didn’t know I started passing them on, calling mine a “Friday Offering.” I rapidly progressed to finding my own material and my original supplier then ceased his weekly publication but over time my small distribution list has grown and is still growing.  Encouraged by the feedback and contributions I have received, the ‘Offering’ has grown and the format become established to be my latest news and wry observations, a collection of jokes and amusing quotations.  I am told that it gets forwarded to every continent (except Antarctica, anyone know someone down there?)

    If you would like to be added to the "Friday" list  and receive these 'Offerings' on a regular basis, (your email address will not be made available to anyone else,) then please e-mail me by clicking this link  bobhambleton@aol.com
