  5. Duck luck

    A Local fella took his old duck to the Vets, concerned because the duck wouldn't eat. The Vet explained to bloke that as ducks age their upper bills grow down over their lower bills and make it difficult for the animal to pick up it's food. "What you need to do is gently file the upper bill down even with the lower bill. But you must be extra careful because the duck's nostrils are located in the upper bill and if you file down too far, when the duck takes a drink of water it'll drown." Yer man goes about his business and about a week later the Vet runs into his client. "Well, how is that duck of yours?" the Vet inquires. "He's dead." declared the heartbroken owner. "I told you not to file his upper bill down too far! He took a drink of water and drowned didn't he?" insisted the Veterinarian . "No." lamented the fella. "I think he was dead before I took him out of the vice.

  12. Walk on the wild side.

    I am on my 5th cd from Frances, I keep giving them away like a soft lad. What throws our perspective somewhat is the removal of the "Double corner" a dog leg on the quay, removed to give more room to maneuver.
  13. Secret of a long life.

    SECRET OF A LONG LIFE A tough old sheep farmer from West Baldwin gave some advice to his granddaughter. He told her that the secret to a long life was to sprinkle a pinch of gunpowder onto her porridge every morning. The granddaughter followed this dictum religiously until her death at the venerable age of 103. She left behind 14 children, 30 grandchildren, 45 great grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and a forty foot crater where the Douglas crematorium used to be.
