Banter / A wee joke
« on: November 04, 2018, 11:54:28 PM »


The Pope comes to Belfast and asks "Anyone with 'special needs' who wants to be prayed over, please come forward to the front by the altar."

With that, Jimmy got in line, and when it was his turn, the Pope asked, "My son, what do you want me to pray about for you?"

Jimmy replied, "Your Holiness, I need you to pray for help with my hearing."

The Pope put one finger of one hand in Jimmy's ear, placed his other hand on top of his head, and then prayed and prayed and prayed. He prayed a great prayer for Jimmy, and the whole congregation joined in with great enthusiasm.

After a few minutes, the Pope removed his hands, stood back and asked, "James, how is your hearing now?"

Jimmy answered, "I don't know, yer Holiness. It's not 'til next week....."

Mod fashion and style / American 3 roll 2 jaikets
« on: September 22, 2018, 02:06:29 PM »

Perusin' the J Press website after followin' a link they emailed me - most ay thir suits seem tae be three button efforts but wi' this "roll" oan the top buttonhole.

Never really understood the reasons fur this style feature nor why it seems tae be so popular across the pond.


Embdy like it and/or prepared tae argue the case in it's favour?  Has always seemed pointless tae me.

« on: August 16, 2018, 02:39:32 PM »

Is it jist me or is it increasingly hard tae find jumpers wi' a decent depth ay "V" in the neckline.

Yin ay ma favourites has been devoured by moths n' lookin' at replacements most ay them seem tae be little better than a variation oan crew necks.


Or is ma double chin a lot bigger than ah thought it wis?
