I'm Back



A teacher said to her class, "Right, I'm going to hold something under the desk and i want you to guess it.
This one is round and red."
Little Johnny's hand shot up, but he was ignored.
"It's a plum miss," said a girl.
"no it's an apple, but I like your thinking.
The next one is oval-shaped and green."
The teacher ignored Little Johnny again and a boy said, "It's a kiwi miss."
No, it's a guava, but I like your thinking."
Little Johnny said, " I got one miss, its stiff, about an inch long, and with a red nib."
"Johny, that's disgusting!" shouted the teacher. " no it's a match, but I like your thinking."
Said Little Johnny.

Technically, it’s called the Appalachian dialect, very much like the Gullah dialect down along the coast. I call it Mountain Speak. At one time, it was prevalent throughout the Appalachian region. 

A burlap bag was a “toe sack” and a paper bag was a “poke.”  You could plow with a horse or a mule using three simple words: “gee” (turn right), “haw” (turn left) and “whoa” (stop).  You would “grabble” the first new potatoes of the year. A chimney was a “chimbly.” A “granny-woman” was a midwife/herb doctor. Enough of anything edible for a meal was a “mess.” READ MORE


A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in awhile a $20 bill fell out onto the sidewalk.
Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag."
"Oh, really? Darn it!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me, Officer."
"Well, now, not so fast," said the cop. " Where did you get all that money? You didn't steal it, did you?"
"Oh, no, no", said the old lady. "You see, my back yard is right next to a Golf course. A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, 'why not make the best of it?' So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, 'O.K., buddy! Give me $20 or off it comes!'
"Well, that seems only fair," said the cop, laughing ."OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?"
"Not everybody pays."

Joe Todd For My Quality Time Blog... Are You At Your Breaking Point? Have You CRACKED?


So tonight as I was cooking, I was thinking about life. And I said in my subconscious “I’ve reached my breaking point.”
I began to make cornbread and cracked these two eggs and I heard “Now I can use you!” You see an egg can’t be used until it’s broken.
I immediately found joy in the breaking!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾. Not everyone will understand this but to those who do be encouraged.
☑️Yes you’re at your breaking point!
☑️Yes you are broken!
But that’s ok! You are ready to be used!

Have A Great Day........ Joe Todd For My Quality Time Blog...

Wisdom Jokes & Travel... At My Quality Time Blog Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens A collection of glass works by artist Dale Chihuly Wisdom Jokes & Travel


Let's Start With A Joke:::

For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman. One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child. If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would provide child support until the child was 18. She agreed but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to mail him a post card and write ‘Spaghetti’ on it. He would then arrange the child support payments. One day about 8 months later, he came home to a very confused wife. “Honey, you received a very strange postcard today.” “Oh really? Let me see…” he said. The wife gave him the card and watched his face as he read it, turned white, and then fainted. The car read: “Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Two with meatballs, one without. Send extra sauce.”

Today's Quotes......

"Never regret yesterday. Life is in you today and you make your tomorrow."

"Happiness and strength endure only in the absence of hate. To hate alone is the road to disaster. To love is the road to strength."
"If you want to earn little money, write a book. If you want to make a lot of money, create a religion."
"To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe."
"Are you making life or is life making you?"

-L. Ron Hubbard
