enjoy your day;;-)


Eleven people were hanging on a rope

Under a moving helicopter.

10 men and 1 woman.

The rope was not strong enough to carry them all

So they decided that one had to leave,

Because otherwise they were all going to fall.

They weren't able to choose that person,

Until the woman gave a very touching speech.

She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope,

Because,as a woman,

She was used to giving up everything

For her husband and kids or for men in general,

And was used to always making sacrifices

With little in return.

As soon as she finished her speech,

All the men started clapping . . . . ..

Have a nice weekend, all. I am going 2 Ruby Tuesdays this weekend. :P

Just You

You can just look at me,

and I melt.

You can just whisper in my ear,

and I fall to pieces.

You can just touch me lightly,

and I get goose bumps all over.

You can just kiss me goodbye,

and I want you to stay the night.

You can just say my name,

and I get butterflies in my stomach.

You can just say you love me,

and I am yours forever.

Life Without Black People

A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people who were fed up with African Americans, so they joined together and wished themselves away. They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people.

At first these white people breathed a sigh of relief.

'At last', they said, 'no more crime, drugs, violence and welfare.'

All of the blacks have gone! Then suddenly, reality set in. The 'NEW AMERICA' is not America at all - only a barren land.

1. There are very few crops that have flourished because the nation was built on a slave-supported system.

2. There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a black man, invented the elevator, and without it, one finds great difficulty reaching higher floors.

3. There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented the automatic gearshift, Joseph Gambol, also black, invented the Super Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan, a black man,

invented the traffic signals.

4. Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because its procurer was the electric trolley, which was invented by another black man, Albert R. Robinson.

5. Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit system could operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African American, Charles Brooks, invented the street sweeper..

6. There were few if any newspapers, magazines and books because John Love invented the pencil sharpener, William Purveys invented the fountain pen, and Lee Barrage invented the Type Writing Machine and W. A. Love invented the

Advanced Printing Press. They were all, you guessed it, Black.

7. Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books, they would not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented the Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purveys invented the Hand Stamp and Philip Downing invented the Letter Drop.

8. The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the Lawn Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower.

9. When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly ventilated and poorly heated. You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air Conditioner and Alice Parker the Heating Furnace. Their homes were also dim. But of course, Lewis

Lattimer later invented the Electric Lamp, Michael Harvey invented the lantern, and Granville T. Woods invented the Automatic Cut off Switch. Their homes were also filthy because Thomas W. Steward invented the Mop and Lloyd P. Ray the Dust Pan.

10. Their children met them at the door - barefooted, shabby, motley and unkempt. But what could one expect? Jan E. Matzelinger invented the Shoe Lasting Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb, Sarah Boone invented the Ironing Board, and George T. Samon invented the Clothes Dryer.

11. Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of this turmoil. But here again, the food had spoiled because another Black Man, John Standard invented the refrigerator....

Now, isn't that something? What would this country be like without the contributions of Blacks, as African-Americans?

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, 'by the time we leave for work, millions of Americans have depended on the inventions from the minds of Blacks.'

Black history includes more than just slavery, Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Marcus Garvey & W.E.B. Dubois.

Never did a chapter book before. I am so up for the challenge, yippee!!!! :rolleyes:


As a standard picture book for children these do not stand alone - for a young (K-3 audience)

I do like them however as chapters for a 180 page chapter book.

As such, you may want to make a pre-teen book for Dontay and submit all the chapters at once.

120 - 180 pages... I really need chapter books for this audience.

I have plenty of innocent and humorous topics for k-3.

I know you can do it!
