WOMEN KNOW THEIR PLACE

Barbara Walters of Television's 20/20 did a story on gender roles in Kabul , Afghanistan , several years before the Afghan conflict.  She noted that women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.  From Miss Walter's vantage point, despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to walk even further back behind their husbands and are happy to maintain the old custom.

Miss Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, "Why do you now seem happy with the old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?"

The woman looked Miss Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation, said, "Land mines."

The moral of the story is that no matter where you go, behind every man, there's a smart woman.

Trying to cheer others up helps with my own anxiety!  Especially if someone gets a laugh.  I have a "regular" joke provider who sends me some doosies.

Wal Mart Parking

I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the Super Wal-Mart Shopping Center and rolled
down the car windows to make sure my Labrador Retriever Pup had fresh air.

She was stretched full-out on the back seat and I wanted to impress upon her that she must
remain there. I walked to the curb backward, pointing my finger at the car and saying emphatically,
'Now you stay.

Do you hear me?'

'Stay! Stay!'

The driver of a nearby car, a pretty blonde young lady, gave me a strange look and said,

'Why don't you just put it in park?

Harlan, Thanks for the pick me ups..........I love the jokes too.

The Train Ride
A man and a woman who have never met before find themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a transcontinental train.  After the initial embarrassment and uneasiness, they both go to sleep, the man in the upper berth, and the woman in the lower berth.

In the middle of the night the man leans over, wakes the woman and says, "I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly reach over and get me another blanket?"

The woman leans out and, with a glint in her eye says, "I have a better idea.  Just for tonight let's pretend that we are married."

The man happily says, "OK.  Brilliant!"

The woman says "Good ...  get your own blanket."

I'm a blonde but my daddy always tells this joke and I always enjoy laughing at it... and myself.

There was a blonde driving down the road and she came across a field where she saw another blonde sitting in a boat just rowing away. She pulled the car over and got out. The first blonde yells to the blonde in the field "What are you doing? It's blondes like you that give blondes like me a bad reputation! And if I could swim I'd come out there and kick your butt!"

Do yall get it? It took me a while. hehehe.

A blonde and a brunette are on opposite sides of a river. The brunette wants to get across.

She yells across to the blonde, "Hey, how do I get to the other side?"

The blonde shakes her head and yells back - "People like you really piss me off. You ARE on the other side!"
