Weekend Wit - Getting old is not what its 'cracked up' to be???

Weekend wit is a day early this week as I'm off down to South Wales tomorrow to get measured up (not for my box just yet!!!) for my suit as Daughter gets married next month!!!

Enjoy and hope the weather is not too hard on you

Fred came home drunk one night, slid into bed beside his sleeping wife, and fell into a deep slumber.

He awoke before the Pearly Gates, where St. Peter said, 'You died in your sleep, Fred.'

Fred was stunned. 'I'm dead?

No, I can't be! I've got too much to live for. Send me back!'

St. Peter said, 'I'm sorry, but there's only one way you can go back, and that is as a chicken.'

Fred was devastated, but begged St. Peter to send him to a farm near his home.

The next thing he knew,he was covered with feathers, clucking and pecking the ground.

A rooster strolled past. 'So, you're the new hen, huh? How's your first day here?'

'Not bad,' replied Fred the hen, 'but I have this strange feeling inside. Like I'm gonna explode!'

'You're ovulating,' explained the rooster. 'Don't tell me you've never laid an egg before?'

'Never,' said Fred.

'Well, just relax and let it happen,' says the rooster. 'It's no big deal.'

He did, and a few uncomfortable seconds later, out popped an egg! He was overcome with emotion as he experienced motherhood. He soon laid another egg -- his joy was overwhelming.

As he was about to lay his third egg, he felt a smack on the back of his head, and heard.....

"Fred, wake up! You've soiled the bed!"

Getting OLD just ain't what they said it would be !!

Haha I wasn't expecting that lol ..What part of Wales?I am Welsh, but live in Somerset .I moved here 15yrs ago and love it....


My daughter moved down to just Carleon on outskirts of Newport about 7 years ago, but the wedding plans are a bit chaotic as Nato decided to have a conference there the same weekend and enforced road closures and commandeered the 3 best hotels completely for the weekend, leaving guests who have traveled from the North east and other areas struggling with accommodation and traffic detours !!


lol very good thank you xx
