Recorded for posteriority !!!

You know … if you drive non-stop for 23 hours and 55 minutes you’ll be 5 minutes from Tulsa!

Anyway … as I was about to tell you before I interrupted myself, what an eventful day today has been.

I started the morning by visiting my doctor.

The poor man was not well and I thought it’s kind to visit the sick.

As soon as I entered the doctor’s surgery he asked me to lie down on the couch. I asked him why and he said: “I want to vacuum clean just where you’re standing!”

Then he looked at me and asked “Do you get severe headaches in the morning, followed by stomach pains and trembling of the knees?”

I replied “No … why?”

“Because I’ve been getting these symptoms for a week and I wondered if you knew what they were!

“Anyhow … what are you here for?” he continued.

I showed him my arm and said “I’ve hurt myself in three places …”

He replied, “Stop visiting these places!”

“And another thing doctor,” I went on, “when I drink tea I get this very sharp pain in my eye.”

“Take the spoon out of the cup before drinking!”

As I got off the couch the doctor asked me, “Tell me, do you have a horse?”

“No I don’t!”

“Pity,” he said, “I have some horse pills I got from a vet … you wouldn’t like to try them do you? You’ll soon be off at a gallop!

When I returned home I found the postman in my front garden.

“Is this letter yours,” he asked, “the surname’s obliterated.”

“My surname is Moubarak” I replied.

He gave me the letter. It was from a lawyer. I had been left two valuable items in Aunt Matilda’s last will and testament.

I took the items to an antiques dealer and he confirmed them as a genuine Stradivarius and a Rembrandt.

Unfortunately, Rembrandt was bad at making violins and Stradivarius was a terrible painter!


  1. Made my day!!!! YOU have a wonderful one!!! Cathy

  2. Hello Cathy,

    It's great to see you smile.

    God bless.

  3. I understand that some of you have been unable to leave comments on my Blog. I can't work out what's gone wrong.

    I'd be grateful if you would please try again so that I can check if it works OK. Thanx.

    God bless.

  4. Victor,
    You are right something is going on. I actually commented on this post yesterday, but it obviously did not reach you. The problems you mentioned about people not being able to comment on your blog has happened to me as well. Mary has that problem with my blog from time to time; it seems to self correct it self after awhile.
    Well like I said yesterday~loved this post; a little humor is always a good way to start the day.

  5. Thanx Karinann. I'm glad your comment got through this time. I hope the problem sorts itself out quickly.

    I'm pleased this post made you smile - yesterday, and I hope again today.

    God bless.

  6. Victor,
    Testing...testing...123 :) It looks like your comments are working again. I've been having a problem on a couple of blogs and even my own is accepting comments differently. Blogger is probably working on it.

    This post was very funny! I loved it!

  7. Thanx Mary for writing in to test my comments box. It seems to be working OK now.

    Glad you liked the post. It made me laugh.

    God bless.



God bless you.
