It's the Groaner of the Week!!!!!!

I'm still buried and have no idea when I'll surface -- I still haven't figured out what/where everything is or is missing and between doctors and bureaucracy, I'm a very busy and frustrated old girl. Still, things are progressing and while there's no light yet, I know there is an end to all the you-know-what coming.

And of course, I couldn't deprive y'all of the your weekly groooaaannn!

Several years ago, John was sentenced to prison. During his stay, he got along well with the guards and all his fellow inmates. The Governor saw that deep down, John was a good person and made arrangements for John to learn a trade while doing his time.

After 3 years, John was recognised as one of the best carpenters in the local area. Often he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the residents of the community, and he always reported back to prison before Sunday night was over.

The Governor was thinking of remodeling his kitchen and in fact had done much of the work himself. But he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a large counter top which he had promised his wife. So he called John into his office and asked him to complete the job for him. But, alas, John refused.

He told the Governor, "Sorry, I'd really like to help you but . . .

"Counter fitting is what got me into prison
in the first place."

Happy Blogging!!!!!

    There's only one groaner I can think of at the moment, and you may already have posted it, but you might as well have it:

    A Buddhist monk walks up to a hotdog stand and says,

    "Make me one with everything!"

    Sightings: That's the point. And yeah, I like the hard-boiled detectives -- Lucas is awesome. I also like Les Roberts' Milan Jakovich series which is set in Cleveland -- I'm not in Cleveland but I'm an hour or so south of it.
