A Scottish Soldier, in full dress uniform, marches
into a pharmacy.

Very carefully he opens his sporran and pulls out
a neatly folded cotton bandana, unfolds it to reveal
a smaller silk square handkerchief, which he also
unfolds - to reveal a condom.

The condom has a number of patches on it.

The chemist holds it up and eyes it critically.

"How much to repair it?' The Scot asks the chemist.

"Six pence" says the chemist.

"How much for a new one?"

"Ten pence" says the chemist.

The Scot painstakingly folds the condom into the
silk square handkerchief and the cotton bandana,
replaces it carefully in his sporran, and marches
out of the door, shoulders back and kilt swinging.

A moment or two later the chemist hears a great
shout go up outside, followed by an even greater
shout.

The Scottish soldier marches back into the
chemist’s and addresses the proprietor, this time
with a grin on his face.

"The regiment has taken a vote," he says.
We'll have a new one."

eye test? I thought it was a computer quiz to see if we know how to magnify. And BTW it tiles into pixels so bad at 500X you still can't see it. Maybe if I transfer it to Photo Shop....?

After I delivered him I went to the elevator with the wheel chair and when I pushed the button to call it I sat down in the chair to wait for the car. When the door opened, there stood General Westmoreland and Bob Hope who had stopped by "the rock" on his way to Vietnam. Caught, I had no choice but to wheel myself onto the elevator. The General leaned over and said to me, "This is Bob Hope." I replied "I know who he is. Who are you?" Then I saw all his fruit salad and his name tag. I thought "Crap. I'm a dead man." The elevator opened on my floor and I wheeled myself out and when the door closed I stood up and pushed the chair back to my ward.

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?". The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."

There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guys says "OK, now what?"

First time I took ex shooting, she started waving a loaded shotgun around pointing it at people; everyone freaked out , I had to unload the gun until she leaned the basics.

Saying that I nearly shot off my own foot climbing over a barbed wire fence; yes, you guessed it, the gun wasn't on safety!!!

Peter,

The First part of your message is funny, but I'm sorry for you about the second part.
Hunting is fun, security must be an ongoing priority and constant concern, like on the sea. Easy to say, not always easy to do ! It happens to me as well to miss some priority !

We've got an old farmers saying here in Ireland:

' A safe gun is more dangerous than a loaded one'

Every year someone gets killed with a supposedly ' unloaded' gun....

Some people say that the devil reloads it when you're not looking. Lol.

I won't relate the circumstances, due to not bringing energy to the early 1980's occurrence. Suffice it to say that every gun is ALWAYS loaded!


No one was injured... by the grace of God, if I may say so.


Made us stand up and take notice like never before; even though we were already safety nuts on guns.

Exactly.

And unfortuatley its young teenagers and kids who have a fascination with firearms, leading to tragic results ....

90 yr old man and 41 year old beauty truly fall in love. They get married.

During 1st night of their honeymoon the girl decides it would be wise, at least on this outset, that they have separate rooms so as to not over tax her new but elderly husband.

Shortly after dinner the wife retires to her bed room.

Not long after there comes a knock on the door. In he comes and a wonderful time is had by both. Then, husband suddenly leaves.

Wife is just really relaxing... and... knock, knock. Again the newlyweds have just too much fun.

Then, off he goes again. This time the wife is tired and begins to fall into slumber. But once again... knock, knock. And what a time they have for the third love making session on that blessed 1st night!

At end of a third set of joyful exercises, while resting in each other's arms... the wife whispers; my goodness darling. You astound me with your sexual prowess and physical vigor. If I didn't know better I'd think you were in your 30's. The first visit was great, second even better... but the third was outstanding. 90 yr old husband sits up quietly, waits a minute, then asks... we've already done this?

Hey!!! - I second the notion...

I'd try to get black on white shirts for those hot summer days; white on black for winters. The saying is one of the truest imaginable. Thanks for posting.
