OK, we just got back from the cruise, and that meant a mountain of mail, a ton of email, mostly junk, but one still needed to plod through it. And then there is the blog to get started on again.

It is now almost 8 pm and the blog as such is going to consist of a couple of pieces of email that got into my inbox while we were away.

This portion of the blog will consist of a link to some photos of World War 2, After the war. I lived through the entire war period, and these are truly interesting photos. I hope you find them as interesting as I did. I will not use the word enjoy, since it rally is not fitting.

Check it out: ww2 pictures


The World War II generation believed the United States could do anything – anything…  And Vietnam was a shattering experience for everyone.

Richard Holbrooke


Abe and Esther are flying to Australia for a two-week vacation to celebrate their 50th anniversary.  Suddenly, over the public address system, the Captain announces: “Ladies and Gentlemen, I am afraid I have some very bad news.  Our engines have ceased functioning and we will attempt an emergency landing.  Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us and we should be able to land on the beach. However, the odds are that we may never be rescued and will have to live on the island for the rest of our lives!"

Thanks to the skill of the flight crew, the plane lands safely on the island.

An hour later Abe turns to his wife and asks, "Esther, did we pay our Visa and MasterCard bill yet?"

"No, sweetheart," she responds.

Abe, still shaken from the crash landing, then asks, "Esther, did we pay our American Express card yet?"

"Oh, no! I’m sorry. I forgot to send the cheque," she says.

"One last thing, Esther. Did you remember to send the Income  tax cheque to Revenue Canada this month?" he asks.

"Oh, forgive me, Abe," begged Esther. "I didn’t send that one, either."

Abe grabs her and gives her the biggest kiss in 40 years.

Esther pulls away and asks him, "What was that for?"

Abe answers, "They’ll find us!"

Have a great day, and be nice to each other.
