My Friend In Israel

When I was in the nursing home and in bad shape, Alex phoned me.

He has phoned me several times since then.

Although I used to complain about Mrs. AOW's blogging, I don't complain now.  She has made some wonderful friends with all her blogging.  Alex is one of those wonderful friends.

Interesting: Alex bears a strong resemblance to my father-in-law, who is also Jewish.

Things over there have to grow on rocks, don't they?

Thanks my friend.

Get a Twitter account...
The best Gizmo to make friend!
( And enemies... )

I'll look into setting up a Twitter account for Mr. AOW.

Watch out for those Twitter accounts, or any social networking account. I'm against them, they make it too easy for unwanted people to get your personal info.

Anyway... So Mrs. AOW's dad is Jewish? No wonder she's so smart. I took after the Jewish side of my family, is my excuse. German and Polish Jews, immigrants, with some Native American mixed in. Good thing, too, as I don't think the Irish and English part has been all that beneficial. :-)

I checked out Alex's blog, that guy is a live one, alright, woohoo. LOL.

Sounds like you're really on the mend, Mister AOW person, good deal, keep it up.

An old man goes to the doctor for his yearly physical, his wife tagging along. When the doctor enters the examination room, he tells the old man, "I need a urine sample, a stool sample and a sperm sample."

The old man, being hard of hearing, looks at his wife and yells: "WHAT?"

"What did he say? What's he want?"

His wife yells back, "He needs your underwear."

Black Sheep,
Mrs. AOW's father was German. But he could have had some Jewish ancestry somewhere earlier in the line. One of Mrs. AOW's uncles did bear a strong resemblance to Alex.

When I said that my father-in-law is Jewish, I was using the shortcut that we use for referring to my mother's significant other for over 20 years. They never tied the knot, and now my mom is in a nursing home. She is in the last stages of Alzheimer's. This man has taken care of my mom better than my father ever would have. I think that's the case because he's Jewish!

Mr. AOW said...

Black Sheep,
That joke is all too true!

I have to say I am glad you and Mrs. AOW are bloggers. Even though we have never met in person, I am happy to know you both; otherwise I wouldn't.
