Mike and Yvonne were 85 years old and had been married for sixty years. Though they were far from rich, they managed to get by because they carefully watched their pennies.
One day, their good health didn’t help when they went on a vacation and their plane crashed, sending them off to Heaven.
They reached the pearly gates, and St. Peter escorted them inside. He took them to a beautiful mansion, furnished in gold and fine silks, with a fully stocked kitchen and a waterfall in the master bath. A maid could be seen hanging their favorite clothes in the closet. They gasped in astonishment when he said, ‘Welcome to Heaven. This will be your home now.’
Mike asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. ‘Why, nothing,’ Peter replied, ‘remember, this is your reward in Heaven.’
Mike looked out the window and right there he saw a championship golf course, finer and more beautiful than any ever built on Earth..
‘What are the greens fees?,’ grumbled Mike..
‘This is heaven,’ St. Peter replied. ‘You can play for free, every day.’
Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch.
‘Don’t even ask,’ said St. Peter to Mike. This is Heaven, it is all free for you to enjoy.’
Mike looked around and nervously asked Yvonne ‘Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol foods and the decaffeinated tea?’
‘That’s the best part,’ St. Peter replied. ‘You can eat and drink as much as you like and you will never get fat or sick. This is Heaven!’
‘No gym to work out at?’ said Mike
‘Not unless you want to,’ was the answer.
‘No testing my sugar or blood pressure or…’
Have a happy life and give someone a smile.

I started water skiing when I was eleven which is fifty years ago now. Of course boats were timber then with very few fibreglass yet in Australia. I have always maintained an affection for the beautiful timber boats of the time.
To view all of my pins this is the link to my Pinterest Board “Wooden Boats“.
I hope you enjoy them and return regularly for the new pins.
I really love old architecture and would like to explore this great old house …
“Across the road at the southern end of the Shambles lies this rather magnificent timber framed house, for which the earliest documentary evidence dates back to 1557, and which now carries the name of Sir Thomas Herbert, who was born in the house in 1606, and who went on to become a significant political figure at the time of the English Civil War.”
The property is in the care of the York Conservation Trust, and is currently in use as a shoe shop.
View the the conservation trust details of the building at Sir Thomas Herbert’s House, Pavement.
Hope you enjoyed.
I have been doing searches on YouTube for videos of the tornadoes in Oklahoma as it hard for me living in Australia to envisage these things. We get Cyclones which can be extremely destructive but I am amazed at the destruction that has happened in Oklahoma.
Just watch this video which I think gives you an idea of the power and fury that is unleashed …
Just search in YouTube for “Oklahoma tornado 2013″ and watch some of the other videos. It would be absolutely terrifying to experience it. I might add that the people who have taken these videos are crackers to use an Australian term.
These are funny please enjoy …
Bet you had a laugh!
