Here's my latest news and jokes update

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 24-05-2019

Greetings,

Steady but slow progress with book four’s publication.

     I am, hopefully, on the final work-through of the manuscript of “Sarina’s Farmer” which I had hoped to get sent to the publishers by the end of next week, but that deadline may not be met due to other pressures.

Continuing health problems are proving difficult to shake off.

     The treatment I have received to deal with the allergic reactions I have been experiencing have not succeeded in curing the problem.  I was back at the surgery this week and am now on my third course of anti-biotics and getting revised treatment(s) to deal with the symptoms of what ever it is causing the reactions.

A pleasant ‘end-of-year’ celebration at Erskine Writers.

      I was able to get to the  final meeting of The Erskine Writers 2018/19 year which, as always, was a garden party.  We were blessed with wonderful weather for the afternoon and it was a great event to be part of.  It was lovely to see so many old friends and I was again able to apologise to the group for not being fit enough to attend the regular weekly meetings.

Short break in my “Friday Offerings”

       There will be no Friday Offerings for the next week or so, as we will be very busy doing family things ‘down south.’  Normal ‘service’ will be resumed either on the 7th or 14th June

 

  Enough, to business:-

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

Graffiti

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

            “Brian loves Jonathan.  -  So did David, read your Bible.“  -  Reigate.

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

Some  more of  The World’s Stupidest Signs

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

            “THIS PRODUCT NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS“  -  On a New Zealand insect spray.

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

Notable Quotations

            “You can measure the social caste of a person by the distance between the husband and wives’ apartments. “  -  King Alfonso XIII

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

Interesting little titbits

  • 26% of all electric cable breaks and 18% of all phone cable disruptions are caused by rats.
  • The USA has more personal computers than the next 7 countries combined.
  • Members of the armed forces and the police cannot vote in the Dominican Republic.

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

ONE OF THE BEST JOKES OF ALL TIME – (apparently!)

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

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

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
