Funny on Monday and Joy List Monday

Music in the Park .... Lego Style

Funny on Monday
A large flywheel company, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. This

new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities,

the CEO noticed a guy leaning on a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to

let them know that he meant business! The new CEO walked up to the guy leaning

against the wall and asked, "How much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young fellow looked at him and replied, "I make $300.00 a week.

Why?" The CEO then handed the guy $1,200 in cash and screamed, "Here's four weeks'

pay, now GET OUT and don't come back." Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO

looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-off did

here?" From across the room came a voice, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."

 Joy List Monday
♥  a weekly ritual  ♥
a reminder to stop and pay attention to the little beauties and graces that make life magical and to set aside time for gratitude each day

 ♥ taking time to visit a friend who recently had hip surgery .... enjoying root beer floats and catching up on life
♥ continued garden goodness ... green beans, cucumbers, beets, cabbage, eggplant, flowers
 ♥ receiving a gentle rain ... a much needed rain
 ♥ surprising my friend Marv for his 87th birthday
♥ a picnic and a boat ride
