Debby’s latest post in her series Spiritual Awareness. Karma

Now something from Sally’s Joke book archives….


A doctor and a lawyer crash into each other in a country lane. Neither is hurt, but the cars are a mess. Seeing that the doctor is a bit dazed, the lawyer offers him a drink from his hip flask. The doctor accepts the drink gratefully, taking a big swig and hands it back to the lawyer who puts it in his pocket. ‘Aren’t you going to have one?’ the doctor asks. ‘I’ll have one later,’ says the lawyer, when the police have gone.’

Long flight

An aeroplane is just a couple of hours into a transatlantic flight when the captain announces, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, one of our engines has failed. There is no cause for alarm. Our flight will take an hour longer than scheduled, but we still have three engines left.’

A few minutes later the captain comes on the intercom again.’Another engine has failed. The flight will now take an additional two hours, but we can still fly on two engines.’ Thirty minutes later the captain takes to the airwaves again. ‘One more engine has failed and the flight will now take an additional three hours. There is no cause for alarm, we still have one engine left.’

At this point one of the passengers turns to the woman sitting beside him and mutters in annoyance, ‘If we lose one more engine, we’ll be up here all day!’

Thank you for joining us today and we hope you are leaving with a smile on your face… thanks Sally and Debby.

    • Lol Sue, then we’d be a pair! I have a good friend who ALWAYS interrupts me when I’m talking for same reasons. The only problem is, when I’m interrupted mid-speak, it’s I that will have no recollection, once interrupted, about what the heck I WAS TALKING ABOUT. LOLOL ❤

  1. Thanks for the laughs, ladies. I could relate to so many of the insights on the list, Debby. Getting older can be pretty funny when you think about it. And great jokes, Sally. If the last engine fails, my guess is it will be a short ride to their destination! Lol.
