The Monday Smile

I hope you all had a good weekend, I have been very busy getting ready for a little trip I'm going to take with my daughter.  We are going to a Spa hotel for a couple of days near Whitby a lovely little seaside town on the North East coast of England.  We had intended to go to Benidorm but unfortunately my daughter hurt her back so it had to be cancelled, she is recovering but I thought that a bit of pampering was in order so I took a deep breath refused to think about the price and just booked it.  We don't want any treatments but I am looking forward to using the spa and having a nice break.

Thank you for joining in the fun and for all the guesses for the Mystery Giveaway, and don't worry I may be away but my trusty laptop is coming with me so I will still be revealing the answer and winners tomorrow.

I hope this starts your week off with a Smile


Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors
and lawyers.

One evening, they chatted after having dinner together. They
discussed the 95th birthday gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who moved to Florida .

The first said, "You know I had a big house built for Mama."

The second said, "And I had a large theater built in the house."

The third said, "And I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."

The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know
she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this
preacher who told me about a parrot who could recite the entire Bible. It took
ten preachers almost 8 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute
$50,000 a year for five years to the church, but it was worth it
Mama only has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it."

The other brothers were impressed. After the celebration Mama sent out
her "Thank You" notes.

She wrote: Milton , the house you built is so huge that I live in only one
room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my groceries
delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."

"Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound and it can
hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing,
and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the

"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give
a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious Thank you so much."

Have a great week!
