Ready for the road

The case is packed, the car loaded and I am ready for the off… So to keep you amused while I am away I leave you with this:

A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.

“Daddy, what happened to him?” the son asked.

“He died and went to Heaven,” the Dad replied.

The boy thought a moment and then said,

“Did God throw him back down?”


Daphne invited her friend Mary and her family to dinner.

At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said,

“Would you like to say the grace?”

“I wouldn’t know what to say,” the girl replied.

“Just say what you hear Mammy say,” Daphne answered.

The daughter bowed her head and said,

“Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”
