   Ynaught posted on Coffee Klatch  This is a shameless plea for prayers for my husband and sympathy for me. On Wed. morning the 10th hubby fell at the bowling alley and broke the ball off his humerus and dislocated it while crushing his rotator cuff. We spent the day in the ER and then had to wait until Monday to see a specialist. He was able to get hubby in for surgery on Tues. and we got home last night after hubby got a total shoulder replacement. My honey is in sooo much pain and the pain killers help a little, but not enough. He barely sleeps at all in the bed, so neither do I. We set up a recliner next to his computer and he catches cat naps there, but no real sleep. I wish I could do something to ease the pain, but nothing I do seems to help. He has always been my rock and now he is dependent and doesn't like it one bit. We will survive, but could certainly use some prayers.

   Phooey  Ynaught, tore my rotator cuff years ago and the pain was excruciating. Remember pounding on the morphine pump waking after surgery. Then comes therapy ! My heart goes out for your hubby and you. Prayer sent and will continue.

   MeiDei  Y - I'm so used to enjoying your jokes I thought this one was - wait hear me out, in your distress you left out a comma after "the 10th" so I thought you can't possibly have had 10 husbands - even Liz Taylor couldn't do that! Now, did you smile - you need some humor to get through all this & you have my sympathy and my prayers for a speedy recovery - for you both; caregivers shoulder a lot of the burden. May all the pain & frustrations be replaced with rapid healing & a return to normalcy - you are both safely in His hands.

   BirdsNest  I'm with you, MeiDei. Once I read it over I realized I had misinterpreted it.

No shame in asking for prayers, they will continue for you and hubby til they are no longer needed. Pain is an awful thing. When Hagar had an eye infection, the medication did not clear it up quickly, I called his eye doctor and told him he needed to prescribe pain meds for either me or Hagar-one of us needed some relief. We are hoping things go back to normal soon and you can enjoy each day as usual.

   Gerty  I am late to get this news but that just means I will pray all the more!
At this very moment, there is a candle burning for your intentions. This is one of the ways I was brought up. We light the candle to add attention to the help we seek--may you and your DH get the courage to bear this painful burden.

   Gerty  Miss Y! Off to the cloak room for you!! ; )

(For you young 'uns, the place where kids put their 'stuff' while in school was the cloakroom. It was simultaneously used as a 'time-out' place of banishment. )

   Ynaught posted on Jokes  The coach had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing missing was a good quarterback. He scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could insure a Super Bowl win.

Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in the West Bank . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Israeli soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.

He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.

Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.

"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"

So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.

The young man is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his Mother.

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you, the old woman says." You are not my son!"

"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans."

"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get raped!" The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says,...

"I will never forgive you for making us move to Chicago"

   Ynaught posted on Jokes  An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of Rimini , Italy , went to the local church for confession. When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the man said:

"Father, during World War II, a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighborhood knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic."

The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no need to confess that."

"There is more to tell, Father. She started to repay me with sexual favors. This happened several times a week, and sometimes twice on Sundays."

The priest said, "That was a long time ago and by doing what you did, you placed the two of you in great danger, but two people under those circumstances can easily succumb to the weakness of the flesh. However, if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven."

"Thank you, Father. That is a great load off my mind. I do have one more question."

"And what is that?" asked the priest.

"Should I tell her the war is over?"

   Surfhut  Dear Gerty, it's not really sad. The process of moving my son away to college was just one more of those milestones of a child's life. Sad to see one pass, thrilled for the new one. It has been a joy, watching him be "on his own" and now REALLY being on his own.

   Gerty  Thanks, MissSurie! Not having been blessed with children, I did not appreciate this aspect. I guess I have been relating more to the 'empty-nest syndrome' three of my nieces are going through at this time.

A brighter side is better to see.

   Ynaught posted on Jokes  A social worker from a big city in Massachusetts recently
transferred to the mountains of West Virginia and was on the
first tour of her new territory when she came upon the tiniest cabin
she had ever seen in her life. Intrigued, she went up and knocked on the door.

"Anybody home?" she asked.

"Yep," came a kid's voice through the door.

"Is your father there?" asked the social worker.

"Pa? Nope, he left afore Ma came in," said the kid.

"Well, is your mother there?" persisted the social worker.

"Ma? Nope, she left just afore I got here," said the kid.

"But," protested the social worker, (thinking that surely she will
need to intervene in this situation ) "are you never together as a
