A haggard old lady rides in a fancy hotel’s elevator.
On the second floor, a beautiful woman steps on
and arrogantly says to the old lady, “Georgio, $100 an ounce.”
On the next floor, an equally beautiful women steps on
and says, “Chanel, $150 an ounce.”
The old lady’s floor approaches and as the doors open,
she bends over, farts and says, “Broccoli, 49 cents a pound.
but discovered that I couldn’t live on my net income.
I liked digging in the garden when I was young.
At one time I considered being an archeologist
but my father said that such a career would end up in ruins .
I used to be a baker , but I didn't make enough dough .
I had worked in the Income Tax Department ,
but it was just too taxing .
I used to be a butler , but found the work wasn't my cup of tea .
At one time, I worked as a Sales executive selling computer parts
but I lost my drive and the boss gave me the boot .
hey are not short-hand ed at the moment.
I thought about becoming a witch ,
so I tried that for a spell .
Next, I found being an electrician interesting,
but the work was shocking .
Next was a job in a shoe factory;
I tried but I just didn’t fit in.

B G has been busy taking this week. And we had snow. I suppose that is why he took so many pictures.
When we woke up there was snow on the ground.
So we had to go out and explore.
It was cold though so we were not in for a long time.
B G said he had seen the Rabbits playing also but he was not quick to see them let alone snap a picture.
Then we settled down with B G the T V to watch Lucky Dog. It is our favorite show.
BG said that I should put this up on Tuesday this week because Monday is Christmas and he put a lot of Christmas Songs. He hopes you enjoy them.
