JOKES & Humor # 4

There are three old men seated inside a doctor’s cabin - all suffering from bad memory. The doctor wants to take a little test - so he asks the first old man, “Can you tell me what is four times four?”

The first man replies, “756”. The doctor can’t believe this. So he moves on to the second old man asks him, “Your turn. What is four times four?” The second man replies, “Friday”.

The doctor shakes his head in disbelief and then asks the third man, “Do you think you have the answer?” The third old man replies, “Sixteen”.

“Wonderful!” says the doctor. “How did you get that?”

“Easy,” the third old man replies, “Just add 756 to Friday.”

trees with an organic acid-lov- ing mix and if ants are crawling about use sticky tangle foot to stop them. Citrus also enjoy used coffee grounds stirred in the top few inches of soil. Roasters offer bagged used grounds around town and certainly save your own. The used paper filters are fine to add to the compost as well.

Soft pink apple blossoms fade giving way to tiny green fruits, Asian pears and juicy plums are swelling. Early mornings are filled with bird-song, echoing from tree tops. Giant terra cotta pots of herbs can be placed about the garden and fragrance is beginning to per- meate the air as April transforms itself into May. We may think we are nurturing the garden but I do believe the garden is nurturing us. Claude Monet said his garden was his most beautiful masterpiece and I hope yours is becoming that for you.

Whatever good things we build end up building us. ~ Jim Rohn
