Wednesday

Three flowers and a joke


Three more flowers for my Flowergarden this Wednesday,
and a picture by Rébecca Dautremer the French illustrator I like so much,
for those of you that have not seen the pictures on my Dear Jane blog.


A friend of mine sent me this joke the other day, some of you may have heard it and some not.

40 Years of Marriage

A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, "For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish."

The wife answered, "Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband."

The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.

The husband thought for a moment: "Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but
my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me."

The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish.

So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof. . . the husband
became 92 years old.

The moral of this story:

Men who are ungrateful should remember:

Fairies are Female . . .

So guys, be careful what you wish for . . .


You never know what can happen . . .


Best wishes to you all and happy quilting.

Paula
