THIS'LL WARM THE COCKLES OF EVEN A COLD COLD HEART





This letter was sent to the South Shields High School Principal's
office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for pensioners. An
elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door raffle prize
and was writing to say thank you.. This story is a credit to all
humankind.


Dear Shields High School

God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Old Age
Pensioners luncheon. I am 87 years old and live at the Laygate home
for Elderly Ladies. All of my family has passed away so I am all
alone.... I want to thank you for the kindness you have shown to a
forgotten old lady. My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio;
but, she would never let me listen to it. She said it belonged to her
long dead husband, and understandably, wanted to keep it safe. The
other day her radio fell off the nightstand and broke into a dozen
pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could
listen to mine, and I was overjoyed to have the chance to tell her to
fuck off.

Thank you for that wonderful opportunity.

God bless you all.

Yours sincerely, Ella.

4 year old's first job.......

Here's a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed between a little 4-year-old girl and some construction workers that will
make you believe that we all can make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time.

A young family moved into a house, next to a vacant lot.

One day, a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot. The young family's 4-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers.

Eventually the construction crew, all of them "gems-in-the-rough," more or less, adopted her as a kind of project mascot. They chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had coffee and lunch breaks, and gave her 20 little jobs to do here and there to make her feel important.

At the end of the first week, they even presented her with a pay envelope containing ten dollars. The little girl took this home to her mother who suggested that she take her ten dollars "pay" she'd received to the bank the next day to start a savings account.

When the girl and her mom got to the bank, the teller was equally impressed and asked the little girl how she had come by her very own pay check at such a young age.

The little girl proudly replied, "I worked last week with a real construction crew building the new house next door to us." "Oh my goodness gracious," said the teller, "and will you be working on the house again this week, too?"

The little girl replied,

"I will, if those assholes at Home Depot ever deliver the fuckin' drywall..."

Kind of brings a tear to your eye - doesn't it?

--There was a bit of confusion at the store this morning. When I was ready to pay for my groceries, the cashier said, "Strip down facing me."

Making a mental note to complain to my congressman about Homeland Security running amok, I did just as she had instructed.

When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to my credit card.

I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.

They need to make their instructions to us seniors a little clearer!

A lady
about 8 months pregnant got on a bus.
She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at
her.
She immediately moved to another seat.
This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again.
The man seemed more amused.
When on the fourth move, the man burst out
laughing,

She complained to the driver and he
had the man arrested.
The case came up in court.
The judge asked the man (about 20 years old)
What he had to say for himself.
the man replied, 'Well your Honor, it was like
this: When the lady got on the bus,
I couldn't help but notice her condition.
She sat down under a sign that said,
'The Double Mint Twins are coming' and I grinned. Then she moved and
sat under a sign that said, ' Logan 's Liniment will reduce the
swelling,' and I had to smile.

Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said, 'William's
Big Stick Did the Trick,'
and I could hardly contain myself.
But, Your Honor, when she moved the fourth
time And sat under a sign that said,
'Goodyear Rubber could have prevented
this Accident!'
... I just lost it.'

'CASE DISMISSED!!
