Meeting Paul Newman

Paul Newman

Only women of a certain era will fully appreciate this.... True story.
(If you don't understand this,tell your mother, she'll get it!)

A Michigan woman and her family were vacationing in a small New England town where

Paul Newman and hisfamily often visited.

One Sunday morning, the woman got up early to take a long walk. After a brisk five-mile hike,

she decided to treat herself to a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone.

She hopped in the car, drove to the center of the village and went straight

to the combination bakery/ice cream parlor.

There was only one other patron in the store:
Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee.

The woman's heart skipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blue eyes.

The actor nodded graciously and the star struck woman smiled demurely.

Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three children,
you're forty-five years old, not a teenager!

The clerk filled her order and she took the double-dip chocolate ice cream cone in one hand and her change in the other. Then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction.

When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change but her other hand was empty.

Where's my ice cream cone? Did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the
cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter or something! No ice cream cone was in sight..

With that, she happened to look over at Paul Newman.

His face broke into his familiar
,warm,friendly grin and he said to the woman,

'You put it in your purse.'

The Cat

The cat

A cat died and went to Heaven.
God met her at the gates and said,
'You have been a good cat all these years. Anything you want
is yours for the asking.'

The cat thought for a minute and then said, 'All my life I lived on a farm
and slept on hard wooden floors. I would like a real fluffy
pillow to sleep on.'

God said, 'Say no more.' Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.

A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went
to Heaven together. God met the mice at the gates with the same offer
that He made to the cat.

The mice said, 'Well, we have had to run all of our lives: from cats, dogs
and even people with brooms! If we could just have some little
roller skates, we would not have to run again.'

God answered, 'It is done.' All the mice had beautiful little roller skates.

About a week later, God decided to check on the cat. He found her
sound asleep on her fluffy pillow. God gently awakened the cat and asked,
everything okay? How have you been doing? Are you happy?'

The cat replied, 'Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy in my
The pillow is so fluffy, and those little Meals on Wheels you have been
sending over are delicious!'

Hey we need a cute clean one every once in awhile.
