The bad joke of the week

Childbirth at 65

With all the new technology regarding fertility recently, a 65-year-old
friend of mine was able to give birth.  When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, I went to visit.

‘May I see the new baby?’ I asked.

‘Not yet,’ she said, ‘I’ll make coffee and we can chat for a while first.’

Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked, ‘May I see the new baby now?’

‘No, not yet,’ she said.

After another few minutes had elapsed,

I asked again, ‘May I see the baby now?’

‘No, not yet,’ replied my friend.

Growing very impatient, I asked, ‘Well, when can I see the baby?’

 she told me.

‘WHEN HE CRIES?’ I demanded. ‘Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?’


Phoebe and I spent Labour Day weekend in Windsor and we went to the Agricultural fair in nearby Harrow.  It was an interesting and enjoyable experience. While there we saw a rotary booth they were selling tickets for the Rotary Club of  Chatham raffle  of a 1968 Mustang GT.

Literacy and Social Justice

From Soo Wong:

I want to thank you for attending last Thurs principal presentation. I know a number of principals have sent me a personal email to thank me for last Thurs event. They also want me to thank all Rotarians for their generous support of the TDSB literacy; I know the principals who attended last Thurs event all thank you for your donation esp when they know your generosity enable them to expand or improve their current literacy program!

Again, thank you….I know I am a very expansive/needy member who always ask for support for our schools!  Oh, did I inform you about the Ward Social Justice project…it is tentative being scheduled for April 29 – 30, Sir John A MacDonald CI; more info will follow; yes, this project will support a number of ward initiatives including the Bob’s Haiti and Kenya water projects.  I hope to have more info after my mtg with the student leaders this Tues.
