Countdown 41

Monday, June 07, 2021

This man buys a pet parrot and brings him home. But the parrot starts cursing him and using terrible language and insulting his wife, so finally the man picks up the parrot and throws him in the freezer to teach him a lesson.
He hears the parrot squawking and screaming in there for a while, and then all of a sudden the parrot is quiet. So the man opens the freezer door, and the parrot walks out, looks up at him, and says, "I apologize for offending you, and I humbly ask your forgiveness."
The man says, "Well, thank you, I forgive you."
And the parrot says, "If you don't mind my asking, what did the chicken do?"

I guess most have now heard that SparkPeople is going to be gone Aug. 17th. Here is the article about why and what now.


For me and many others it will be goodbye. Not sure if my countdown number is correct but should be close. For a while at least I will probably only post a joke. I do not have 41 jokes left in the book but might just try and do some of the early ones over for the time remaining. I really appreciate all your comments. Thanks.

    SA is for corporations, so I can't see any purpose in it for me. Blogs, sparkpages and friends have been why I stayed 13 1/2 yrs.

    My brother died May 26 and today would have been his 69th birthday. He had had chronic acid reflux and he had surgery 10-1-2020 and it failed and so he was in ICU 4 times over the last 8 months and in rehab and the nursing home and back to the hospital again and again. He died in his sleep. Because of Covid the hospital, etc. had been locked down and even his wife and son hardly got to talk to him accept twice through a glass partition. I know the isolation was the major reason he never got better, as even PT was done in his room as they didn't take anyone to a group workout area. So sad.

    SP shutting down is bad news indeed. Their SparkAmerica 365 is nothing like this and doesn't offer a social platform for blogs. I don't plan on using it.

    I will miss your daily jokes and blogs, for sure! Thank you for planning to continue with the jokes up until the end. We all need something to be able to laugh about.
    Enjoy your day!
