Steven and I are famous for forgetting our anniversarry...for nine years straight. We knew kinda when it was, but the date kept slipping our minds.

We finally remembered in time to throw a party for our tenth.

I put the words "Tailspin" and "Tweezers" into google and clicked on Search. No idea why I chose those two words, but this is holistic surfing I suppose.

The third item listed was your URL.

I read the first few paragraphs and laughed several times. You write beautifully and some of your comments are delightful. I only wish I was as adept at articulating my feelings as you!

Don't have time to read much more right now, but I've bookmarked your page and will be back for more later.

Thankyou for brightening my day.

Perhaps I shall do some more holistic surfing as well - the results so far are stupendous.

Regards and best wishes,

TC

Feeling better today, darlin? I'm afraid I gave you that cold, though if there were any justice that would mean that I didn't HAVE it any more.

Moot and I got confused about our anniversary this year -- we planned our celebratory dinner for the day after our actual anniversary and only realized belatedly that we'd gotten confused. As it happens, the day we celebrated was the day I found out I was pregnant, so we were both appropriately giddy.

Is the aircraft carrier museum an actual decomissioned aircraft carrier? We have one of those in Alameda. They have a party there every fourth of July, boasting "a dance floor big enough to land an airplane on."

What a nice random comment, Tony! Thanks! I think you might have ended up here because of a reference further down the page - to the infamous "penis tweezers" invented by Minnie.

I remember being very puzzled by a joke in a book called "101 Elephant Jokes" from the mid-70s.

It had some good stuff like, "Why did the elephant wear red sneakers? Because his green ones were in the wash."

the puzzling joke was:

Q: How do you get an elephant into a bottle?
A: Look at the elephant through the wrong end of some binoculars. Pick him up with tweezers and put him into the bottle. Voila!

I got it, but didn't really think it was funny.... I would sit around thinking about it for HOURS... perhaps even in a tailspin of whirling thoughts! Shot down by the 101th elephant joke!

Elephant Jokes - I have two.

1). How does an elephant hide in a cherry tree?

He paints his toenails red!

Have you ever seen an elephant in a cherry tree?

See- it works!

Note: Remembered from a joke book from the school library when I was 7.

2). Is a sight gag. Wasted in print!

How does an elephant ask for a bun?

It says (put right arm up to nose and wave about like an elephants trunk) "Can I have a bun please"?

As I said, it's a sight gag and best performed to under seven's. Though drunken adults do seem to find it amusing.

Left arm is fine, but both arms at once is uncomfortable and not as funny.

Keep typing, I'll keep reading though may not be able to add comments for a while as you have quite a backlog for me to work through.
