A Scottish Christmas Joke...

A man in Scotland calls his son in London the day before
Christmas Eve and says, "I hate to ruin your day but I have
to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing;
forty-five years of misery is enough."

'Dad, what are you talking about?' the son screams.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer" the
father says. "We're sick of each other and I'm sick of
talking about this, so you call your sister in Leeds and
tell her."

Franticly, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the
phone. "Like hell they're getting divorced!" she shouts,
"I'll take care of this!"

She calls Scotland immediately, and screams at her father
"You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing
until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll
both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO
YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife.
'Sorted! They're coming for Christmas - and they're paying
their own way.'

Teen Sailor Who Ran Away Found in Caribbean

World Teen Sailor Who Ran Away Found in Caribbean

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (Dec. 20) —
Police tracked down 14-year-old Dutch
sailor Laura Dekker in the Caribbean
territory of St. Maarten, days after she ran
away from home leaving her boat behind,
Dutch media reported late Sunday.

Dekker made headlines around the world
earlier this year when she unsuccessfully
went to court as a 13-year-old to fight for
the right to set off on a single-handed
circumnavigation of the world in her boat,
Guppy.

National broadcaster NOS and
newspaper De Volkskrant reported that
St. Maarten police tracked down Dekker
on Sunday after news of her
disappearance broke and she was
expected to be flown home soon. They
cited police on St. Maarten and the Dutch
Child Protection Agency.

Bart Muhl, AP

Laura Dekker, 14, went missing on
Friday. Here, she speaks to the media in
August.

Police and the Child Protection Agency in
the Netherlands could not immediately be
reached for comment late Sunday.
St. Maarten is part of the Netherlands
Antilles, a group of self-governing
Caribbean islands that are part of the
Dutch kingdom.

Earlier Sunday, Utrecht police spokesman
Bernhard Jens said Dutch authorities
issued an international alert after Dekker
was reported missing Friday.
Jens said Dekker’s boat Guppy, was still
moored at its usual berth.
“We do not believe this is a crime,” Jens
said.

Jens would not comment on a report in
Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant that
Dekker withdrew euro3,500 ($5,000) from
her bank account a few days ago.
NOS cited a family spokeswoman as
saying that Laura left a letter for her father
before disappearing. It did not say what
was in the letter.

The spokeswoman, Mariska Woertman,
did not return calls seeking comment.
In October, Utrecht District Court refused
to let Dekker embark on her attempt to
become the youngest person to sail alone
around the world, and placed her under
the supervision of child care authorities

2
until next July, meaning she could not
leave the country without their
permission.

Jens said Dutch authorities had alerted
neighboring countries to monitor airports.
“That happens with missing minors - if
she is seen somewhere else or tries to
leave via an airport or something like that,
authorities know we are looking for her,”
he said.

Dekker has joint Dutch and New Zealand
citizenship because she was born on a
yacht in New Zealand waters. She said
earlier this year she might try to go there
if Dutch authorities refused to let her sail.
“We are doing everything we can to make
sure we can get her back,” Jens said.
“We are certainly concerned about her
health - we are talking about an underage
girl.”

After the October court ruling Woertman
said Dekker remained confident she
would be ready to sail next July and
would still be able to set the record as the
youngest sailor to circumnavigate the
globe.

The Utrecht court first blocked her
departure in August out of concern for her
safety. The decision sparked a worldwide
debate on how much authorities and
parents should limit children’s freedom to
undertake risky adventures.
Laura’s parents, both veteran sailors, are
separated. Laura’s father supported the
attempt, but her mother said in a
newspaper interview in September she
thought Laura was too young.

A Whale of a Christmas Tale

A Whale of a Christmas Tale
By
Dear Miss Mermaid

Twas the Night Before Christmas, and all through the Caribbean
Not a creature was stirring, but many fans were purring
I was asleep on my boat, when suddenly I awoke
I heard a bang, and then a clang!

I sprang out of my bunk, colliding with a furry hunk
Rudolf! The Red Nose Reindeer! How are you, my dear?
Need some sunscreen? Or would you like ice cream?
Oh, dear, he sighed, listen here, he cried!

Santa was sloshing in eggnog, his mind was off and in a fog
Since it still wasn't day, he leaned over the sleigh
To take a quick leak, since his bladder was weak
His eyes were a little blurry, but he spotted something furry

With a wink in his eye, he exclaimed in the sky
From way up in the air, I can see her hair!
Why, I've never been laid, by a Caribbean mermaid!
But oh dear me! Santa jumped, in the sea! But that's not all, this is why I call

Santa was swallowed by a great big fish, who thought he was a Christmas dish!
I don't know what happened to the mermaid, but I don't think Santa's gonna get laid!
We need him back at the North Pole, not in a fish, swallowed whole!
Rudolf, I said, don't despair, at least it wasn't a big black bear

Let me take you fishing, I know that you been wishing
For a Caribbean holiday, to come your way!
We went out in my boat, where on the sea we did float
We baited our hook, we wanted that crook

That big nasty old fish, who thought Santa was a dish
Finally we caught him with our bait, with Santa inside, he was a great weight!
We made that hideous fish, grant us our wish
And with a great heave, out popped Santa's sleeve

He came out of that great fish body, only just a little wobbly
He had this awful smell, it turned the reindeer almost pale!
We dried off old St Nick, and we did it quick
We didn't want him to say Achoo! As if he may of caught the flue!

We got back into port, cooking up the fish for sport
That one big fish, made a fine Christmas dish
Off the reindeer, they did fly, with Santa Claus way up high
Back in my bunk where I was laying, I could still hear Santa saying

Merry Christmas to all, I'm having a ball, that big old fish, made one fine dish
But listen here, when I come back next year, I hope I get laid, by that Caribbean Mermaid!

How to Make Bedroom Slippers for Christmas

My dear friends,

Somewhat embarrassing to admit, I'm not getting an annual bonus and Christmas is tight this year. I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts. You'll most likely agree that it's a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I've included the instructions below:

How to make bedroom slippers:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair. Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part. The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top. Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part. Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers or Christmas doo-dads.

These slippers are:

  • Soft and Hygienic
  • Non-slip grip strips on the soles
  • Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
  • No more bending over to mop up spills
  • Disposable and biodegradable
  • Environmentally safe

I've attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself.

Fun Quotes



A wise man once said; "Look on life as an apple the more you eat the less you have,but if you don't eat it it will spoil so you have to throw it away, so make sure you enjoy your life to the fullest.

Bumper Sticker: No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.
