Olaf the Viking

Olaf the Viking is shopping at a supermarket when he comes across an old lady in a wheelchair, almost in tears.


“What’s the matter?” asks Olaf.


“Oh,” sobs the old lady. “I want to have a look at the frozen puddings but, as you can see, there are three steps down into the chiller cabinets.”


“No problem,” says Olaf, lifting her onto his back. “I’ll take you.”


Olaf strolls through the chiller cabinets with the old lady on his back. She selects several puddings and puts them in the basket he is carrying for her.


At the other end the old lady’s husband is waiting with her wheelchair.
“I’d really like to thank you,” says the old lady as Olaf sets her back down in the chair, “but I don’t even know who you are!”


Olaf just waves and walks off.


“I was really worried about you,” comments the old lady’s husband. “What have you been doing?”


I’ve been through the desserts on a Norse with no name.”

Lake Tyers Water Level very high

Lake Tyers is set to break through to the sea if the water level continues to rise. Very interesting to see how much it’s come up in three days!


One Liners – not my original work


Telling a person to calm down is about like baptizing a cat.

Prayer is the original wireless communication.

My doctor asked if anyone in my family suffered from mental illness. I said, “No, we all seem to enjoy it.”

I thought the dryer made my clothes shrink. Turns out it was the refrigerator.

I thought growing old would take longer.

Went shopping while hungry; now I’m the proud owner of Aisle 6.

Camping: where you spend a small fortune to live like a homeless person.

Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say: “close enough.”

Being an adult is the dumbest thing I have ever done.

I’m a multitasker. I can listen, ignore and forget all at the same time!

Went to an antique show and people were bidding on me.

I won’t say I’m worn out, but I don’t get near the curb on trash day.

People who wonder if the glass is half empty or half full miss the point. The glass is refillable.

Retired: under new management. See spouse for details.

Be the kind of woman who, when your feet hit the floor first thing in the morning, the devil says: “Oh, oh, here she comes.”

When you can’t find the sunshine…be the sunshine.



So Sad to See

So sad today to read of the closure of this wonderful place! We shared many happy meals there with family and friends. A totally unique and amazing experience.

We wish the owners all the best for whatever the future holds for them, and say “Thanks for the memories”


Goodbye to the Cuckoo Restaurant
