THE LONG CATEGORY [8 nominations]

Tony Crafter with:
Several men were in a golf club changing room. Suddenly, a cell-phone on a bench rang and one of the men engaged the hands-free speaker function and started to chat.

Everyone else in the room stopped to listen.

MAN: "Hello"

WOMAN: "Hi babe, it's me. Are you down at the club?"

MAN: "Yes."

WOMAN: "I'm doing some shopping right now and I've found this gorgeous, pure leather jacket. It's only $2K; do you mind if I buy it?"

MAN: "No, just go ahead if you want it."

WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and viewed their latest models. There was this cherry-red one that I particularly loved."

MAN: "How much?"

WOMAN: "$70K."

MAN: "Sounds good. Go ahead, but for that price I'd want it with all the bells and whistles. Leather upholstery and so on."

WOMAN: "Oh, wow! Right, I'll do the deal! Oh, and one other thing... I was just talking to Judith Hoddle and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $980K."

MAN: "Bid $900K. They'll probably take it. If not, I'd be happy to do the extra eighty-thousand if that's what you want."

WOMAN: "Oh, right! I love you so much, honey. See you later!"

MAN: "Bye. Love you too."

The man hung up. The other guys in the locker room were gawping at him in open-mouthed astonishment.

He turned round and said: "Anybody know whose phone this is?"

=

Ring, ring... Ring, ring... ring...

'Hello?'

'Hey there, honey, it's Daddy. Is Mommy near the phone?'

'No, Daddy. She's in the bedroom with Uncle Alan.'

(After a brief pause)

'... But you haven't got an Uncle Alan, honey.'

'Yes I have, and he is upstairs in the bedroom with Mommy, right now.'

(Brief pause...)

'Er... okay, honey, this is what I want you to do: Lay the telephone down on the table. Then go upstairs, knock on the bedroom door and call out to Mommy that Daddy's car is just coming into the driveway. Okay?'

'Okay, I'm going up now.'

(A few minutes later...)

'I did what you asked me to, Daddy."

'Fine, and exactly what happened, honey?'

'Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming. Then she tripped over the rug and hit her head real bad on the dresser. Now she isn't moving at all!'

'Oh, my God! So, what about your Uncle Alan? Can he assist?'

'No, he jumped out of the bed with no clothes on as well Then, he was so scared that he jumped straight out of the back window and fell head-first into the swimming pool. But I guess he didn't know that you took out all the water last week to clean it. He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he's been killed.'

(A long pause...)

(A longer pause...)

(An even longer pause...)

'Swimming pool...? Er... is that 99800702?'

'No, I think you have the wrong number...'

Dharam with:
The prayer of St. Francis of Assissi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
=
Just an author's observation:

You and I currently see or hear the familiar atmosphere of
whitewashed racism, bloodshed, desperation, helplessness,
shame, fear ahead.

However, we observe this:
The standard faithless attitudes of jittery worry,
disproportionate irritability, deferred defeat,
introversion, general weakness.

In response, we need to counter this with authentic
knowledge, determination, meditation, neighborhood
engagement, togetherness, sisterhood, civility,
honest work, perseverance.

Dharam with:
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
--Cecil Frances Alexander
=
A Dreadful Matter

With all resources exhausting,
All the birds endangered,
All glacial lands melting,
We must act on behalf of all grandchildren.

Dharam with:
If you must look back, do so forgivingly.
If you must look forward, do so prayerfully.
However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present. Gratefully.
- Maya Angelou
=
Guess I will fully overlook George Bush the Younger's years of atrocity (now a family guy).
Hope to vote for a key woman president.
But, thankfulness for Donald Trump is idiocy!

Maurice G. with:
"The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!"
=

THE SPECIAL CATEGORY [2 nominations]

Tony Crafter with:

HAPPY NEW YEAR
by ABBA

No more champagne,
And the fireworks are through,
Here we are me and you,
Feeling lost and feeling blue;
It's the end of the party,
And the morning seems so grey,
So unlike yesterday,
Now's the time for us to say ...

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May we all have a vision now and then,
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend,
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May we all have our hopes our will to try,
If we don't we might as well lay down and die,
You and I.

Sometimes I see
How the brave new world arrives,
And I see how it thrives,
In the ashes of our lives;
Oh yes, man is a fool,
And he thinks he'll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay,
Never knowing he's astray,
Keeps on going anyway ...

(Chorus)
Happy New Year
Happy New Year ...

Seems to me now,
That the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor;
It's the end of a decade,
In another ten year's time,
Who can say what we'll find,
What lies waiting down the line,
In the end of eighty-nine ...

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May we all have a vision now and then,
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend;
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try,
If we don't we might as well lay down and die,
You and I.
=

THE UNHAPPY NEW YEAR?
A Naysayer (Anonymous)

Hold the champagne,
Celebrations aren't yet due,
Do we leave the EU?
Do you have a point of view?
It's the end of a sad year,
Many dead: Glenn Frey; Ali;
Bowie; Prince; Michael; Vee;
Wogan; Wilder; Harper Lee.

Happy New Year,
Happy New Year,
If we survive with Trump as President,
Might that loony fogey make the world lament?
Happy New Year,
Happy New Year,
Will the 'Remoaners' have their wish fulfilled?
And keep Britain in a waning EU still?
Maybe they will.

Gosh, now I hear
Tony Blair may re-emerge,
Does he feel a vain urge
To go for a power surge?
Ooh, but he's a known liar,
And we have to douse his fire,
Hey, don't be fooled, he'll aspire
To land his nation in the mire.

Happy New Year
Happy New Year...

I wonder why,
This sad world is full of doom,
Why the hate, why the gloom?
Why does danger always loom?
It's the end of an odd year,
One that has not been serene,
Who knows what waits unseen?
Does the grass look far more green
Now, in twenty-seventeen?

Iffy New Year,
Iffy New Year,
Who'll we see invading who and why?
In a world where death is raining from the sky,
Happy New Year,
Happy New Year,
How many innocents may go to graves,
Afraid, abandoned in a Syrian enclave?
Who's to say.

Tony Crafter with:
Arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife.

Tearfully she explained, "It's the pharmacist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone, and I'd already had to call several times before he even answered it."

Immediately, the outraged husband drove off to see the man and demand an apology.

Before he could utter more than a word or two, the chemist said, "Just a minute, please hear my side of the story.

"This morning my alarm clock didn’t go off, so I was pretty late getting up.

"I went without breakfast and rushed out to my car, only to find I had locked my house with both house and car keys inside, so I had to break a window to retrieve my keys.

"Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket. Then, about two miles from the store, I had a flat tyre.

"When I finally got to work late, a crowd of people were waiting for me to open up. I got the store opened and started serving them. All the time the darned phone was ringing.

"Then I had to break open a roll of ten-cent coins against the cash register drawer and they spilled out all over the floor. I had to get down on my hands and knees and pick them all up and the phone was still ringing.

“When I came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer, which made me stagger back against a display stand with about fifty bottles of perfume on it. Half of them hit the floor and smashed.

"Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing without let up, and when I finally got to answer it, it was your wife. She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer.

"And believe me mister, as God is my witness, all I did was tell her.”

Mitch and his good pal Walt decided go on a skiing trip, so they stacked up Mitch's van and headed north.

After travelling for some hours, they got caught in a raging snowstorm, so they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive blonde woman who answered the door if they could shelter there for the night.

'Well,' said the woman, 'I realise that the weather is terrible out there and I happen to have this big house all to myself, but I am recently widowed. All the neighbours will talk if I let you stay in my house.'

'No problem,' Mitch said. 'We'll be happy to bunk down in the barn, and if the bad weather clears up, we'll be gone in the morning.'

The woman agreed, so the men went to the barn and settled in for the night.

Come morning, the weather had cleared and the two companions set off for a fantastic weekend's skiing.

Some nine months later, Mitch got an unexpected letter from a legal firm. It took him a few moments to work it out, but he finally realised it was from the lawyers of the attractive widow they'd met on the skiing trip.

Later that morning, he called at Walt's house and asked, 'Do you recall that fine-looking widow from the farm we stopped at on that skiing trip nine months ago?'

'Yes, I do,' replied Walt.

'Er... did you happen to disappear in the night and go up to the house to pay her a visit?'

'Well... yes,' Walt said, now feeling a bit embarrassed. 'I have to confess, I did.'

'And did you also happen to give her my name instead of yours?'

Walt's face turned as red as a beetroot. 'Gee, I'm so sorry Mitch; I'm afraid I did. Er... why do you ask?'

'Seems she's just died and left me everything.'
