Walking with Anne

We enjoy a stroll with Anne and admire the seaside flowers.

You overhear this from a cluster of ladies over there...

"Anne was tenderness itself, and she had the full worth of it in Captain Wentworth's affection. His profession was all that could ever make her friends wish that tenderness less, the dread of a future war all that could dim her sunshine. She gloried in being a sailor's wife, but she must pay the tax of quick alarm for belonging to that profession which is, if possible, more distinguished in its domestic virtues than in its national importance."
- Jane Austen, Persuasion, Ch. 24


When you bend down to pick a flower, you get a glimpse of something moving amongst the leaves.

  1. My favorite color has always been blue, but lately I have been really loving the color red.

    A fairy told a married couple: "For being such an exemplary married couple for 35 years, I will give you each a wish."
    "I want to travel around the world with my dearest husband", said the wife.
    The fairy moved her magic wand and - abracadabra! - two tickets appeared in her hands.
    Now it was the husband's turn. He thought for a moment and said: "Well this moment is very romantic, but an opportunity like this only occurs once in a lifetime. So... I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me."
    The wife was deeply disappointed but, a wish was a wish.
    The fairy made a circle with her magic wand and - abracadabra!
    Suddenly the husband was 90 years old.

    Moral: Men might be bastards.
    But fairies are... female.

  2. My favorite color is dark goldenrod (usually I pair it with forest green).
    Since a fairy godmother is a fairy here's my joke:

    An old lady is rocking away the last of her days on her front porch, reflecting on her long life, when--all of a sudden--a fairy godmother appears in front of her and informs her that she will be granted three wishes.
    "Well, now," says the old lady, "I guess I would like to be really rich."
    *** POOF *** her rocking chair turns to solid gold.
    "And, gee, I guess I wouldn`t mind being a young, beautiful princess."
    *** POOF *** she turns into a beautiful young woman.
    "Your third wish?" asks the fairy godmother.
    Just then the old woman`s cat wanders across the porch in front of them.
    "Ooh--can you change him into a handsome prince?" she asks.
    *** POOF *** there before her stands a young man more handsome than anyone could possibly imagine.
    She stares at him, smitten. With a smile that makes her knees weak, he saunters across the porch and whispers in her ear:
    "Bet you`re sorry you had me neutered."

  3. My favourite colours are green and orange.

    After losing another tooth, young-old Timmy became more curious about the mysterious tooth fairy.

    Finally putting two and two together, he came right out and asked his mother, “Mom, are you the tooth fairy?”

    Assuming he was old enough to hear the truth, she replied, “Yes Timmy, I am.”

    Timmy seemed to take this news quite well.

    But as he headed for the door, he slowly turned back toward his mother with a curious look on his face and said, “Wait a minute mom. How do you get into the other kids’ houses?”

  4. My favorite color is blue.

    What is a fairy's favorite soda pop?

    Why does a fairy clean their house several times a day?
    because of all the pixie dust

  5. My favorite color is green. :)

    Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, an honest lawyer and an old drunk are walking down the street together when they simultaneously spot a hundred dollar bill. Who gets it?

    The old drunk, of course; the other three are mythological creatures.
