The Absentminded Professor

An absent-minded professor was moving to a new house further down the block from where he was living. His wife knew that he  was prone to forgetting things so she wrote down the address of the new house on a piece of paper before he went off to college. She handed him the paper and the keys to the new house and reminded him not to go back to the old house.
That morning one of his students asked him a complex question and the professor wrote the answer down on the back of the slip of paper. The student asked him whether he could keep the paper. Forgetting what was on the other side of the note, the professor responded,”Certainly.”
In the evening he returned out of habit to the old house,tried the key and couldn’t get in. Realizing his mistake he searched in his pocket for the slip of paper with the new address, but of course, it wasn’t there. So he wandered along the street and stopped the first personable looking lad whom he saw.
“Excuse me, I’m professor Galbreath. You wouldn’t happen to know where I live, do you?”
“Sure,dad.” said the boy.

Screw’s Sulpher Springs Dominica

Sell Art Online

Dominica

This was my first visit to this part of the world, I didn’t really know what to expect. Like many others, for a long time I thought
Dominica and the Dominican Republic were the same. However, I soon learned that The Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti and is near Puerto Rico and Dominica is in the southern Caribbean near Grenada.

Dominica, What an Island! A land of many wonders, but one of the most enjoyable would have to be Screw’s Sulphur Springs.
Nestled in the rain forest near Trafalgar Falls, a visit will bring relaxation, refreshment and take away five years of stress.
Traversing the hilly, steep winding roads can be quite a feat, I can’t imagine there would be more treacherous roads anywhere fortunately  high speeds are entirely out of the question, therefore, the risk of an accident is minimal.

Having spent the morning driving through the rainforest and hiking the long trail to Ti Tu Gorge, it was now time to relax and enjoy a nice sulphur water swim.

Screw’s Sulphur Springs

Not only is the water refreshing(quite different from the chilly waters of Ti Tu Gorge) we found five pools of warm and cool water  to enjoy.
The staff is very efficient and Mr. Screw, the owner is very  hospitable. From the moment we arrived, we felt very
welcome and part of the family.
 The place looks magnificent, with greenery everywhere, it’s like having your own private rainforest. As one relaxes in the five pools, all your tensions and worries melt away. One can only handle this luxury for maybe an hour, then it’s time to get back to the real world.
Climbing back up to the road we were greeted in the bar/sitting area with fresh fruit and  a cup of Coco-Tea. All the fruits and the Coco itself is grown on site, nothing like fresh fruit right from the vine.

The people living on the island are very laid back and happy, the island has one of the lowest crime rates in the Western Hemisphere, and they also enjoy one of the longest lifespans, living eating fruits and nuts found on the island, many live to be centurions. (I assume the low crime rate could also lead to a longer life.)

Much too soon our journey was complete, and after the mandatory shopping stop,  it was time to make our way back to our floating hotel just in time to catch a glimpse of the island as we left port. After enjoying a fine dinner in the dining room, it was time to retire for the evening and prepare for our next port of call where more adventures
awaited us.

The Dead Mule

The Dead Mule

A farmer named Clyde had a car accident. In court, the trucking
company’s fancy lawyer was questioning Clyde ..

“Didn’t you say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine,’?”

asked the lawyer.

Clyde responded, “Well, I’ll tell you what happened… I had

just loaded my favorite mule, Bessie…”“I didn’t ask for any details”, the lawyer interrupted. “Just answer
the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m
fine!’?”Clyde said, “Well, I had just got Bessie into the trailer and

I was driving down the road…..” The lawyer interrupted again and said, “Judge, I am trying to establish
the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman
on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the
accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud.Please tell him to simply answer the question.”

By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Clyde ‘s answer and said to the lawyer, “I’d like to hear what he has to say

about his favorite mule, Bessie”.Clyde thanked the Judge and proceeded.

“Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favorite

mule, into the trailer and was driving her down the highway
when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my truck right in the side. I was thrown into one
ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was hurting,
real bad and didn’t want to move. However, I could hear ole Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible
shape just by her groans. Shortly after the accident a
Highway Patrolman came on the scene. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he
looked at her, and saw her fatal condition, he took out his

gun and shot her between the eyes..

Then the Patrolman came across the road, gun still in hand, looked at me and said, “How are you feeling?”
“Now what the hell would you say?”

Sleeping Librarian

A librarian was fast asleep at 3:00 in the morning when the phone rang. The voice on the other end said,” What time does the library open?”
“Nine O’clock ,” replied the librarian, bleary-eyed.”And what’s the idea of calling me at home in the middle of the night to ask a question like that?”
“Not until 9:00?” said  the caller.
“No not until 9:00” replied the librarian, “Why do you want to get in before nine o’clock?”
“I don’t want to get in,” said the caller, “I want to get out.”
