Heaven’s Delight

The couple were 85 years old and had been married for sixty years. Though they were far from rich, they managed to get by because they watched their pennies. Though not young, they were both in very good health, largely due to the wife’s insistence on healthy foods and exercise for the last decade.
One day, their good health didn’t help when they went on a rare vacation and their plane crashed, sending them off to Heaven. They reached the pearly gates, and St Peter escorted them inside.
He took them to a beautiful mansion, furnished in gold and fine silks, with a fully stocked kitchen and a waterfall in the master bath. A maid could be seen hanging their favourite clothes in the closet. They gasped in astonishment when he said, “Welcome to Heaven this will be your home now”…

The old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. “Why, nothing”… Peter replied, “remember, this is your reward in Heaven”…
The old man looked out the window and right there he saw a championship golf course, finer and more beautiful than any ever built on Earth..
“What are the greens fees”…? Grumbled the old man. “This is heaven”… St Peter replied. “You can play for free, every day”
Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch, with every imaginable cuisine laid out before them, from seafood to steaks to exotic deserts, free flowing beverages. “Don’t even ask” said St. Peter to the man.
This is Heaven, it is all free for you to enjoy”… The old man looked around and glanced nervously at his wife.
“Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol foods and the decaffeinated tea”…? he asked. “That’s the best part”… St. Peter replied. “You can eat and drink as much as you like of whatever you like and you will never get fat or sick. This is Heaven”… The old man pushed, “No gym to work out at”…?
“Not unless you want to” was the answer. “No testing my sugar or blood pressure or”…
“Never again. All you do here is enjoy yourself”…

The old man glared at his wife and said, “You and your bran Flakes. We could have been here ten years ago”…👀😂👍

When You Meet Jesus

An Australian, an Irishman and a Scouser are in a bar.
They’re staring at another man sitting on his own at a table in the corner.
He’s so familiar, and not recognising him is driving them mad.
They stare and stare, until suddenly the Irishman twigs: ‘My God, it’s Jesus!’
Sure enough, it is Jesus, nursing a pint.
Thrilled, they send him over a pint of Guinness, a pint of Fosters and a pint of bitter.
Jesus accepts the drinks, smiles over at the three men, and drinks the pints slowly, one after another.
After he’s finished the drinks, Jesus approaches the trio.
He reaches for the hand of the Irishman and shakes it, thanking him for the Guinness.
When he lets go, the Irishman gives a cry of amazement: ‘My God! The arthritis I’ve had for 30 years is gone. It’s a miracle!’
Jesus then shakes the Aussie’s hand, thanking him for the lager.
As he lets go, the man’s eyes widen in shock.
‘Strewth mate, the bad back I’ve had all my life is completely gone! It’s A Miracle.’
Jesus then approaches the Scouser who says,
‘Back off, mate, I’m on disability benefit.👍😂🤣

Trust Lil Old Ladies?

A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around.
If he stopped, she stopped.
Furthermore she kept staring at him.
She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said,
“I hope I haven’t made you feel ill at ease; it’s just that you look so much like my late son.”
He answered, “That’s okay.”
“I know it’s silly, but if you’d call out “Good bye, Mom” as I leave the store,
it would make me feel so happy.”
She then went through the checkout and, as she was on her way out of the store,
the man called out, “Good-bye, Mom.”
The little old lady waved, and smiled back at him.
Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone’s day,
he went to pay for his groceries.
“That comes to £121.85,” said the clerk.
“That can’t be right… I only bought 5 items.”
The clerk replied, “Yeah, but your Mother said you’d be paying for her things, too.”
Bet you thought this was going to be a tearjerker. Don’t trust little old ladies!!.. 🤪🤣

Sunday Thoughts

Mr Docile is having a lovely time in Barcelona, Spain and shared that he is enjoying the scenery and glorious food!

Typical Singaporeans who travel the world with a discerning palate.

I know he loves good vino as well and am sure he and his family are having an epicurean feast for each meal.

My shoulder is hurting and will continue to hurt till the darn bone spur is removed surgically.

I reflected on friendships and relationships again.

At different stages of my life, I have had friends who showed up again after a lapse of years and or made new ones.

The blessing in all this is that I was never “abandoned” when I needed a friend or help.

However, I do get upset when I approach a person for help and they choose to ignore or the person I “expect” to help me does not offer help.

Is “expectation” wrong?

Can a wife expect a husband for help? Or is it wrong to have expectations?

Can a partner expect the other to be there for each other?

If I made a promise to another and I do not fulfill is, am I, the promisor at fault or the promisee?

Promises (yes sounds like I am in Kindie, like a kid with pinky promises) are not contractual I guess but I do like to keep promises I make.

If I cannot keep a promise then, I would refrain from promising anyone I can do this or that.

I was berated for expecting a promise to be kept.

I was chided that I had “expectations” by the promisor.

I am old fashioned and a romantic at heart.

I give trust and love – would help where I can, to be best of my ability in deeds as I am not of philanthropic net worth to be dishing out millions of dollars!

Someone I know close to 31 years, would always throw something bad at me when I share any sadness or pain in health matters.

“My neck and shoulder is hurting painfully”

Reply

“Something bad happened to me. In discussion now with some people after class”

“What happened?”

Reply

“Tell you face to face when we meet” – silence ensued.

“Surgeons finally found the cause of my unexplainable shoulder pain. I have a nasty bone spur that is sawing my tendon when I use my arm.

Reply

“I have a strange illness and I have to be extra extra careful. Will be going to TTSH to confirm”

I have decided with much heartache that this is not a friend I need or want to keep any longer.

I cannot seek this friend’s help to lug groceries or help me with heavy household items. This friend will never assign or set aside time to help me to get food either as constant claims of terribly busy with alot of appointments in diary.

I often wondered why I cannot be penned in?

But my friend has time to champion eco causes, petition against a sentence passed by a judge for molestation charges and so on….

Would you keep this person who replies you like this?

I would drop this “friend” like a hot potato right?!

Silly me to keep this baggage for 31 years thinking a friendship or a relationship exists.
