Hello,

 

I thought Grape Jelly (jam) was unique to Royal Caribbean as sometimes that's all I can find in the MDR's preserves tray. It's unknown (thankfully) in UK supermarkets.

 

Regards,

A little English major humor to hopefully make you laugh or at least smile - paraprosdokians - a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected.

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.
2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it's still on my list.
3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
5. War does not determine who is right - only who is left.
6. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
7. They begin the evening news with 'Good Evening,' then proceed to tell you why it isn't.
8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.
9. I thought I wanted a career. Turns out, I just wanted pay checks.
10. In filling out an application, where it says 'In case of emergency, notify:'
I put "DOCTOR."
11. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
12. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street
with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.
13. Behind every successful man is his woman.
Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.
14. A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.
15. You do not need a parachute to skydive.
You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
16. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.
17. There's a fine line between cuddling and
holding someone down so they can't get away
18. I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.
19. You're never too old to learn something stupid.
20. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and
call whatever you hit the target.
21. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
22. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
23. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more
than standing in a garage makes you a car.
Finally:
24. I'm supposed to respect my elders, but now it’s getting harder and harder for me to find one.
 
Hope you enjoyed them. ---Sophie

I’m currently icing my knee which was nearly destroyed 3 1/2 years ago when a texting driver slammed into The rear of my car at 35mph while I was the fourth car stopped and a red light, and I approve this message. 

Oh no!!

Sorry to hear that.

I think grape jelly is the go to jelly for PB&J sandwiches in the U.S.  I grew up on it.

It must be cheaper than others as my my mother was always frugal. (I almost said cheap)

 

I haven't had it in decades. My favorites are: 1. Orange Marmalade and 2. Strawberry jam.

Sallie likes peach jam (home-made from our neighbor) made with Georgia peaches.

More often than not, all I find on Royal is the nasty orange marmalade.

 

Bummer that you don't have much to choose from in UK stores.

All good thanks Sophie but this one reminds me of night shifts in my last job,with amazing regularity almost immediately after the bell went for the start of the shift the radio station played a song which started with the lines:"Tonight's gonna be a good night
          Tonight's gonna be a good,good night"
You just knew it wasn't!

Monday, October 12th is Canadian Thanksgiving.  Family and friends tend to enjoy turkey and many other trimmings etc. on either the Saturday, Sunday or Monday.  2020 will be very different from other years as families will celebrate either in their own family 'bubble' or by sharing visually.  Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians  - may you enjoy your weekend.  (Now on to some humour/cartoons)
