Ready for the road

The case is packed, the car loaded and I am ready for the off… So to keep you amused while I am away I leave you with this:

A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.

“Daddy, what happened to him?” the son asked.

“He died and went to Heaven,” the Dad replied.

The boy thought a moment and then said,

“Did God throw him back down?”


Daphne invited her friend Mary and her family to dinner.

At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said,

“Would you like to say the grace?”

“I wouldn’t know what to say,” the girl replied.

“Just say what you hear Mammy say,” Daphne answered.

The daughter bowed her head and said,

“Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”

  1. Those are excellent.

    The first one reminds me of my mother letting me in to a room once where one of our elderly friends was dying in bed. I was just five and the lady told me she was going to Heaven. She looked sad but then smiled brightly when I replied in total sincerity that I would see her when she got back!

  2. Grannymar,

    My brother and his wife have a daughter named Susan. When she was little, in order to visit my parents, they had to take two trains.

    One train went into the city center (Penn Station) then another train took them to the country where my parents lived.

    Susan was very frightened of the big station. It was huge, crowded and loud. One night her Mother was listening to her say her prayers and heard Susan say this.

    “And lead us not into Penn Station, but deliver us from evil,Amen.”
