FAMILY MILESTONES

This summer John’s Dad will celebrate his 90th Birthday while his parents will be celebrating their 60th ( Diamond) Anniversary! John’s Dad was born in Dublin, Ireland July 1st 1927 and joined the British Air Force in 1945 and was part of the peacekeeping efforts in Egypt following World War 11.

As for the celebrating these events, John & Glenda will be heading back to Ireland with family to be part of their celebration this summer, while John will hope to post some photos on Facebook, so make sure to like our page!

After Therapy, Laughter Is The Best Medicine!

Coconut Gluten & Sugar Free Cake INGREDIENTS A gorilla walks in to a bar and orders a martini. Amazed, the bartender mixes up the martini and when he walks back to the Gorilla, the Gorilla is holding a $20 bill. Now the bartender is at a loss for words. He can’t believe a gorilla just walked into his bar, ordered a martini and actually had a $20 bill to pay for it! As he heads back to the register to make change, he think to himself, “Let me try something here and see if the Gorilla notices anything” He walks back to the Gorilla and just gives him a dollar in change. The Gorilla doesn’t say and just sips on his martini. After a few minutes, the bartender feels compelled to talk to the Gorilla and says, “You know, we don’t get too many Gorillas in here.” And the Gorilla says “At $19 a drink, I’m not surprised”! (LOL)
