F R I D A Y… the 17th of February 2020…!

Good Day All.

Friday is always the best day of the week… when you work ashore…! You can hear the weekend calling…. But when you are onboard a vessel, it doesn’t matter what kind of vessel it is, there is no weekend and you will be busy on the Saturday and Sunday…. So, for those at sea and doing their job I wish you all the best and keep your good spirit up…. The day will come that you can go home and get a well-deserved vacation…...!!!!

John, I think it's safe to say that we all have a lapse of something or other now and again, or even more often .....
Keep smiling......

M O N D A Y…the 17th of February 2020…!

Good Morning…!

This morning I woke up and …I already had Friday on my mind… Then I suddenly remembered that it was the name of an old song…when I was very young…..maybe you heard it sometime on the radio…

The Easybeats…. – "FRIDAY ON MY MIND"…..

Monday morning' feels so bad

Ev'rybody seems to nag me

Comin' Tuesday I feel better

Even my old man looks good

Wednesday just don't go

Thursday goes too slow

I've got Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city

Be with my girl, she's so pretty

She looks fine tonight

She is out of sight to me

Tonight I'll spend my bread, tonight

I'll lose my head, tonight

I've got to get to night

Monday I'll have Friday on my mind

Do the five day grind once more

I know of nothing' else that bugs me

More than workin' for the rich man

Hey! I'll change that scene one day

Today I might be mad, tomorrow I'll be glad

'Cause I'll have Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city

Be with my girl, she's so pretty

She looks fine tonight.

She is out of sight to me

Tonight I'll spend my bread, tonight

I'll lose my head, tonight

I've got to get to night

Monday I'll have Friday on my mind

3 horrible facts:
1. Today is not Friday
2. Tomorrow is not Friday
3. Even the day after tomorrow is not Friday.

Good Morning…!

In the United Kingdom, elections are always held on a THURSDAY. This may seem a little odd, especially considering there’s no specific reason why other than tradition. The last United Kingdom election to be contested that did not occur on a Thursday was back in 1931, when everybody voted on a Tuesday.

Good Day..Tankies.…!

#1. Canadians say “sorry” so much that a law was passed in 2009 declaring that an apology can’t be used as evidence of admission to guilt !

#2. One habit of intelligent humans is being easily annoyed by people around them but saying nothing in order to avoid a meaningless argument !

John was a few terms ahead of me but as I recall he was always as smart as a new pin.

Just received this email from his daughter

It’s Major’s daughter Debbie here. Just to let you know that Dad had a fall on 29 December and is currently in Blyth Community Hospital.

He’s doing fine – just needing physio to help walk so he can come back home.

He’s asked me to let you know and that he will be back in touch when he comes out.

Regards
