A Raggedy Post

Dang, that felt good!
Betcha he feels COOL now.

OK a couple of teething problems,

The first penguin is supposed to push the second one into the
And it's supposed to be Wednesday when this goes up... lets
hope it is Wednesday now.

It was great to get that update from Karen telling us that Raggedy was home and on the way to recovery, I know you all join me in wishing her a speedy return.

A Raggedy post.

By special arrangement with Raggedy, the cool one, this is your foreign correspondent
holtieshouse bringing you, from downunder, all you have always wanted to know but were afraid to ask.

Now let’s see if I can guess what you have always wanted to know…

No doubt upper most in your minds would be;

Is Raggedy REALLY “the cool one” as we are led to believe?

I can answer this uneqivikly unekivikly, without any doubt, yes she is, so cool in fact that she has had an ice-rink named in her honor, it’s the Raggedy Rink where they recommend you dress down in your old and raggedy clothes, there are also moves afoot to have The Yukon Highway renamed The Raggedy Way, more of that as the news breaks.

How did holtieshouse come to be presenting us with this drivel?

The sad fact is that Raggedy is not well and asked for volunteers to keep her multitude of readers amused… My good buddy Hoss has assumed this role, while I on the other hand just promised to fill up a bit of space.

It would be remiss of me to waste an opportunity, when I have a large audience, and not do a little promotional work for the land down under,

Australia is a large island, so large in fact that it has been declared a continent, it is similar in size to the USA or Canada, but differs from either of them in that it has a fertile fringe around much of the huge coastline but a very dry arid center, so dry that a large proportion of the center is classed as desert, this is one of the reasons we have a relatively small population, (20 million) another reason is that we are so far away from the northern hemisphere that we are still considered by many to be a nation of savages, we encourage this line of thought so that we can keep our paradise to ourselves.

So that my next appearance here can be a little more interesting it would be nice if you were to leave questions in the comment section you know the sort of things you really want to know about, it is safe to pick any topic you like, I have a broad base of general knowledge, a fertile imagination, and a willingness to invent research answers for you.

I just love the tradition of closing with a joke;

The lawyer and the blonde.

A lawyer and a blonde woman are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists, that the game is a lot of fun. "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5; you ask me one, and If I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500."

This catches the blonde's attention; and, to keep him quiet, she agrees to play the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?"

The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches in to her purse, pulls out a $5 note, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?"

While the lawyer ponders this the blonde goes back to sleep.

The lawyer uses his laptop, searches all references. He uses the Airphone; He searches the net and even the Library of Congress. He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail.
After one hour of searching he finally gives up. He wakes up the blonde and hands her $500.

The blonde takes the $500 and goes back to sleep.

The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes her up and asks, "Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"

The blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.

Now that’s Raggedy COOL.

Wonderful, Peter! "How did holtieshouse come to be presenting us with this drivel?" turned out to be your subliminal message that I got.

Peter, your drivel is always interesting.
You even updated the old lawyer/blonde joke to include the lap top computers.
Very nice!

That's a good one...I laughed out loud! LOL!
Your description if Australia is unique and delightfu;! Makes me want to visit, immediately! (Luckily I'm not afraid of Savages...)
Okay. Here's a question for you...
Where do you live in Australia? In the Desert or near the water?

Any joke that combines lawyers and blondes has to be good ;)

Raggedy, get well soon!
