Smiley Friday.

Hello Smilers all,

I'm not quite on death's door.  Caught a very unpleasant bug that has given me nearly two weeks with barking dog for a throat, and an elephant sitting on my chest.  It's nearly gone, and I'm dopey with the post viral lethargy. 

Anyway, he's a little funny story to make us all smile...  You can find more of them at Wipso's spot.

The old lady was very upset because her beloved husband, Albert had just passed away.  She went to the undertaker's to have one last look at her dear departed husband. The instant she saw him, she started to cry.

One of the undertakers approached the old lady to provide comfort in the sombre moment. Through her tears, she explained that she was upset because her dearest Albert was wearing a black suit, and it was his dying wish to be buried in a blue suit.

The undertaker apologised, and explained that traditionally, they always put the bodies in a black suit, but he would see what he could arrange.

The next day she returned to the undertaker's to have one last moment with Albert before his funeral the following day. When the undertaker pulled back the curtain, she managed to smile through her tears, as Albert was resplendent in a smart blue suit.

She said to the undertaker, "Wonderful, wonderful, but where did you get the beautiful blue suit?"
"Well yesterday afternoon, just after you left, a man about your husband's size was brought in and was wearing a blue suit.  His wife explained that she was very upset as he had always wanted to buried in a black suit." the undertaker replied.

The old lady smiles at the man.  He continued, "After that, it was simple a matter of swapping the heads... ".

Oh crikey;-)    Have a lovely weekend.

Uuuurgh! I needed to know that, didn't it :)

Glad you are on the mend! Horrible lurgies around at the moment, have managed to avoid so far.

Many thanks for the LOVELY card with two fabulous ATCs! They are both great and I'm very pleased we are not being bothered by blowflies, at the moment! Is the globe from Memory Box? It's really clever! The Stampscape card is great ... are they Stampscape stamps? Will put them on WOYWW post this week :)
