Seeing no one around that it might belong to, he slipped it into the pocket of his shorts.
Later, on his way home, he stopped at the pedestrian crossing, waiting for the lights to change.
A girl standing next to him eyed the large bulge in his shorts. ‘What’s that?’ she asked, her eyes gleaming with lust.
‘Tennis ball,’ came the breathless reply.
‘Oh,’ said the girl sympathetically, ‘that must be painful. I had tennis elbow once.’”

cameras or people.

You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, with your 55 years, can no longer supply. I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife.
Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel.
Please do not be perturbed... I will be back home before midnight.
When the man came home, he found the following letter on the dining room table:
My Dear Husband,
I received your letter and thank you for your honesty. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 55 years old.
At the same time I would like to inform you that while you read this, I
will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, my tennis coach, who, like your
secretary, is also 18 years old.
As a very successful businessman and with your excellent knowledge of math, you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small difference.
18 goes into 55 a lot more times than 55 goes into 18.
Therefore, I will not be back before lunch time tomorrow......

JUST A MOM?
A woman, renewing her driver's license at the County Clerk's office was asked by the woman recorder to state her occupation. She hesitated, uncertain how to classify herself.
"What I mean is," explained the recorder, "do you have a job or are you just a......?"
"Of course I have a job," snapped the woman. "I'm a Mom."
"We don't list 'Mom' as an occupation, 'housewife' covers it," said the recorder emphatically.
I forgot all about her story until one day I found myself in the same situation, this time at our own Town Hall. The Clerk was obviously a career woman, poised, efficient and possessed of a high sounding title like, "Official Interrogator" or "Town Registrar."
"What is your occupation?" she probed.
What made me say it? I do not know. The words simply popped out.
"I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations."
The clerk paused, ball-point pen frozen in midair and looked up as though she had not heard right. I repeated the title slowly emphasizing the most significant words. Then I stared with wonder as my pronouncement was written, in bold, black ink on the official questionnaire.
"Might I ask," said the clerk with new interest, "just what you do in your field?"
Coolly, without any trace of fluster in my voice, I heard myself reply,
"I have a continuing program of research, [what mother doesn't) in the laboratory and in the field, (normally I would have said indoors and out).
I'm working for my Masters, (first the Lord and then the whole family) and already have four credits (all daughters).
Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities, (any mother care to disagree?) and I often work 14 hours a day, (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers and the rewards are more of a satisfaction rather than just money."
There was an increasing note of respect in the clerk's voice as she completed the form, stood up and personally ushered me to the door.
As I drove into our driveway, buoyed up by my glamorous new career, I was greeted by my lab assistants -- ages 13, 7, and 3. Upstairs I could hear our new experimental model, (a 6 month old baby) in the child development program, testing out a new vocal pattern. I felt I had scored a beat on bureaucracy! And I had gone on the official records as someone more distinguished and indispensable to mankind than "just another Mom."
Motherhood! What a glorious career! Especially when there's a title on the door.
Does this make grandmothers "Senior Research associates in the field of Child Development and Human Relations" and great grandmothers "Executive Senior Research Associates"? I think so!!!
I also think it makes Aunts "Associate Research Assistants".

noun... a small, usually round object of glass, wood, stone, or the
like with a hole through it, often strung with others of its kind in necklaces,
I guess since I am a "jewelry artisan" that beads would naturally be a favorite thing.... I'm particularly fond of vintage beads, pearls, metal, and semi-precious stones....I guess I discovered this passion for beads while I was in Massachusetts years ago and went to my first official bead store...... I was like a kid in a candy store!! I didn't yet know that my passion for collecting beads would turn into a passion for creating jewelry.
Books - ok... so I'm a bit of a book snob... I really only like hardcover books. Something about the printed word, bound in such a way... hmmmm... even the smell of books. I love libraries, and bookstores.... I LOVE books... The smell, the feel, the words and the pictures, the "right at your fingertips" knowledge they contain. It amuses me that I can learn different things from the same book at different stages of my life... I love to go back to them years later and re-read them to discover new things.... Books I'm reading (or re-reading) now?
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert... a great book to take to the beach this summer!
... I have to admit... the "eat" part was my favorite!
Bacon - I think I could easily be a vegatarian if it weren't for bacon. No other "meat" calls to me like this one. I like it extra crispy....hmmmm... I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! My husband and I could easily eat an entire pound of bacon with our Sunday brunch!
