Joke Time (2)

An elderly man and his wife are taking a stroll along a lovely deserted beach. Suddenly the husband trips over something. A bottle. And out pops this genie. “I will grant you each one wish” the genie says.

The wife quickly makes her wish first. “I would like to go on a Caribbean cruise with my husband.”  Suddenly there’s a big purple puff of smoke and lo and behold when the smoke clears the genie is holding two tickets for a luxury Caribbean cruise!

The genie hands the tickets to the wife and then he turns to her husband and says, “Now for your wish.” The husband thinks about it for a second and then with a cheeky grin he says, “I wish I had a younger companion.” There’s another big purple puff of smoke, and lo and behold when the smoke clears the husband has aged ten years!

A little bit of poetry #3

Cats sleep anywhere

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody’s lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don’t care! Cats sleep anywhere.
