Three aspiring psychiatrists were attending their first
class on emotional extremes.

"Just to establish some parameters, " said the professor, to

the student from Arkansas, "What is the opposite of joy?"

"Sadness," said the student.

"And the opposite of depression?" he asked of the young lady from Oklahoma.

"Elation," she said.

"And you sir," he said to the young man from Texas, "How
about the opposite of woe?"

The Texan replied, "Sir, I believe that would be giddy up."

Funny!

These jokes remind me of a family story about my childhood.

I grew up in Texas, but my 6th grade teacher was from South Carolina.
She was also married to one of my Dad's grad students, so what ever I
did in school got back to my folks.

Anyway, I received an F on a spelling test.  Spelling was never my best
subject (as you all probably know) but that was worse than normal.  My
teacher had a talk with my mom, who went over the test with me.  Even
though I hadn't studied and didn't know a lot of the words on the list.
I instisted I had spelled 'poach' correctly and the teacher was just
being unfair.  Well, it turns out the word was porch, as in sentence
"The *** swept the poach."

I never listened even to the sentence, just spelled what I heard.

arghhhhhhh, i've suffered in silence over the years as i try ever so quickly
(read frantically) to decipher what someone means as they speak in context
but the accent/language evades my tiny brain.
so far i've not been totally embarrassed, lol.

a very funny joke, which caused me to remember this one

A mama mole, a papa mole, and a baby mole all live in a nice little mole
hole. One day, they were traveling along a mole tunnel. They got closer
and closer to the farmhouse and started smelling all the wonderful
smells of Sunday dinner.
Papa mole says, "Yummm, just smell that cornbread".
Momma mole ways , "Ooooh, I just love the way that pulled pork smells"!
Sister mole says, "Ahh, collard greens".
Baby mole, says, "What are you-all talking about, all I smell is molasses!

Hi Sharon,

I was wondering if you knew any decent online suppliers of fabrics and
notions etc.  Living in Darwin I am a bit isolated from the rest of the
world!!  Even if the sites are international but well priced in relation to
the exchange rate that would be great!

Thanks Heaps

Yaaaaaaaaay!  You finally told me where you live!!  Knew I'd geddit
eventually.  Ummm, I usually tend to buy from spotlight, or when DH goes
away I send him to Joanns in the USA.  If you don't mind purchasing from the
US and paying a bit of shipping then Keepsake Quilting is good.  Go to their
website and ask for a catalogue first, but they have a pretty good online
range.  Otherwise in Oz someone put me onto Craft Depot
(www.craftdepot.com.au) and there's
http://www.auscraftnet.com.au/directory/patchwork.htm which lists a heap of
places who are either online, or will mail order.  Oh and if you have any
old Aust Patchwork and Quilting books there are usually a stack of places in
the backs of them.  If you need something specific shoot me a note and I'll
be happy to get it for you and send it up, or help you find it.  Cheers!
