Leaving On An Airplane... DOUBLE BLESSING... a Rabbi & Priest... Unlimited Drinks... SKYWATCH FRIDAY

Shortly after takeoff on an evening flight from Dublin to Boston, the lead flight attendant nervously made the following announcement. “Ladies and gentlemen, I am so very sorry, but it appears that there has been a terrible mix-up by our catering service. We have 103 passengers on board, but only received 40 dinner meals. I apologize for this mistake and inconvenience.” When the muttering of the passengers had died down, she continued. “Anyone who is kind enough to give up their meal so that someone else can eat will receive free and unlimited drinks for the duration of the 10-hour flight.” Her next announcement came 2 hours later. “If anyone is hungry, we still have 40 meals available.”


A Jewish rabbi and a Catholic priest met at the town's annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends, they began their usual banter.
"This baked ham is really delicious," the priest teased the rabbi. "You really ought to try it. I know it's against your religion, but I can't understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don't know what you're missing. You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Frobisher's prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?"

The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, "At your wedding."

A rabbi, priest, and a minister are out fishing in a boat on a big lake when the priest realizes that he has to go to the bathroom. Not wanting to disturb the fishing of the others in the boat by having them take him to shore, he gets out of the boat and walks across the water to do his business and then returns to the boat. A little while later the minister has to go also and he does the same. He walks across the water, does his business and returns across the water to the boat. Finally, the rabbi feels the urge to go to the bathroom too, so he climbs out of the boat. But instead of walking across the water, he falls into the water and starts to wildly splash around. The priest and the minister finally drag the rabbi back into the boat and the priest turns to the minister and says, "Maybe we should have told him where the rocks were."

In Jerusalem, a journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Wailing Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a long, long time. She went to the Wailing Wall and there he was! She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, she approached him for an interview. “Sir, how long have you been coming to the Wall and praying?” “For about 50 years.” Said the old man. “50 years! That’s amazing! What do you pray for?” “Well, I pray for peace. I pray for all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up wise, in safety and friendship.” “How do you feel after doing this for 50 years?” “Like I’m talking to a wall!”


Today;s Quotes::::“What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.”
“Life does not owe you anything, because life has already given you everything.”
“Today is plenty; right now is enough. Tomorrow will come in good time. Until it does, live the depth of now.”
“Stop needing and start having. Stop wanting and start being.”
“Every positive thing in your life represents a single unique blessing. Every negative thing in your life has the opportunity to become a double blessing. For when you turn a negative into a positive, you gain twice. You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force.”
- Ralph Marston

We could have gone (it was May) to Pike's peak, but I refused, no coat with me or anything warm. That was a crazy airline message:( Even more interesting, because people wanting to give up their meal so easily for drinks!

You are so funny, and a great adventurer/photographer. It has been years since I have been to Pike's Peak. Time to go again I think.

We're westerners and used to mountain roads, but Pike's Peak tested our nerves and breathing!! Our son drove us up there (and down)! It is truly beautiful and I loved your pictures. Thanks for the terrible jokes ;>))) (I'll share them with Bill). Stay well and warm.

Oh PS: we saw Peter Paul and Mary in concert years and years ago -- they were so good. Lots of memories in this post.
