    What was that for ?

    A guy was sitting quietly reading his paper when his wife walked up behind him ...
    ... and whacked him on the head with a frying pan.

    "What was that for?" he asked.

    "That was for the piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name Mary Lou written on it," she replied.

    "Two weeks ago when I went to the races, Mary Lou was the name of one of the horses I bet on," he explained.

    "Oh honey, I'm sorry," she said. "I should have known there was a good explanation."

    Three days later he was watching a ball game on TV when she walked up and hit him in the head again, this time with the iron skillet, which knocked him out cold.

    When he came to, he asked, "What the heck was that for?"

    She replied, "Your horse called." Ouch..

    Good joke, rainee!
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise
