Lend a helping hand!

A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00am by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger,standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push. 

"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!" He slams the door and returns to bed.

"Who was that?" asked his wife."Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.

"Did you help him?" she asks.

"No, I did not, it is 3:00 in the morning and it is pouring rain out there!"

"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself! God loves drunk people too."

The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain.

He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"

"Yes," comes back the answer."

Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.

"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.

"Where are you?" asks the husband.

"Over here on the swing set," replied the drunk


Don't know why this gave me such a chuckle!  It does feel good to laugh, doesn't thought I would share.  Have a great Hump Day tomorrow!

From Paula...SPRING!

Yesterday afternoon a large envelope arrived which had this in it....

The first one I opened had LOTS of butterflies!

They all have their own thread so that I can hang them in a window......

And then there was a plate, and then some Lemonade and matching forks! Picnic!

But it did not stop there....Lunch! Tuna, Animal Cookies, Chocolate and a beautiful Garland!!! Long and Bright and Beautiful....oh, my!

Up close and personal....can you see the thread for the Butterflies? 

Here they are all strung out....see the toilet paper cardboard? The Butterflies lived there from New York to Idaho...they were soooooo happy to be free!
I am, OF COURSE, going to use these in the store to show people just how beautiful crochet really is, and how versatile!!
It is a CROCHET STORE after all!

Have a great week, and hopefully you will want the pattern as much as I so we will all have to go en masse to her web site and find it!
Or ask......
