The old ones are the best!!

I just had this forwarded to me and it made me laugh, so I just wanted to share the joke.....


I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:
A half-gallon of 2% milk,
A carton of eggs,A quart of orange juice,
A head of romaine lettuce,
A 2 lb. can of coffee,
And 1 lb. package of bacon.

As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of thecashier.

While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated,"You must be single."

I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by thederelict's intuition, since I was indeed single.

I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of me, I said: "Well , you know what, you're absolutely right.
But how on earth did you know that?"

The drunk replied, "Cause you're ugly."

Good one!

Just catching up on your blog -

From Canada to France? wow!!

I loved the pic of the place in France - I don't think you're blind at all!!
And the view from the B&B - at first I thought it was here in Alberta..

No it really was France, I live in southern Ontario, so unfortunately the landscape here is not so inspiring. Alberta eh! That's where my son lives, chillin' in Banff. Now that is inspiring scenery!!

Wake up - Hello I also have skiied in Tremblant, very pretty. A friend was skiing there last week and said it was -21 degrees C! Next time you come west, try Alberta or British Columbia, spectacular skiing and scenery. Ontario is just too flat for good skiing and the scenery does not compare.
