You are most welcome FarmerD, but come on now. Of course you can handle no.13. I dare you to do it! Think of the general hilarity it would cause and then you could come on here and give us all a laugh! I've not had a great day so it gives me a lift when people like yourself enjoy the jokes. hugs xx

I am so pleased that you enjoyed the joke, and thanks so much for letting me know that. If I have not had a great day it gives me a boost when I know that you enjoy the jokes. xxxx hugs

Firework hi huggs, very funny and so accurate, I can certainly relate to most of them, thankyou for the laugh, you take good care.

Ha Ha Huggs I fit all but will only admit it on here. Not to friends and family. xx

HI Suzy, Glad you enjoyed it. That's the good thing about computers we can admit anything we want on here, but don't even mention it to others. It is quite funny though. Hugs xx

Glad you liked it firework. Someone ( an alleged friend!) sent it to me so I thought I would share it as it is funny. hugs xx
