Flying in to Tampa

A jumbo jet is just coming into the Tampa Airport on its final
approach. The pilot comes on the intercom, "This is your
Captain. We're on our final descent into Tampa. I want to thank
you for flying with us today and I hope you enjoy your stay
in Tampa Bay".

He forgets to switch off the intercom. Now the whole plane can
hear his conversation from the cockpit. The copilot says to
the pilot, "Well, skipper, watcha gonna do in Tampa?"

"Well," says the skipper, "first I'm gonna check into the hotel
and take a big crap.... then I'm gonna take that new stewardess
with the huge tits out for dinner..... then I'm gonna wine
and dine her, take her back to my room and put it to her big
time all

Everyone on the plane hears this and immediately begins looking
up and down the aisle trying to get a look at the new

Meanwhile the new stewardess is at the very back of the plane.
She's so embarrassed that she starts to run to try and get to
the cockpit to turn the intercom off. Halfway down the aisle,
she trips over an old lady's bag and down she goes.

The old lady leans over and says: "No need to hurry, dear.
He's gotta take a shit first.

This Joke was sent to me by my late girlfriend's Mom, she now works as a missionary to orphans in Tanzania. Incredible how she maintains her sense of humor.

She cooks....

Helps with surgery assisting Dr. Sam who I met last year when he was getting some help from some of the Boston Area hospitals.

Gail and Sam delivering shoes to one of the Orphanages.

Gail is over 60 years old...She'll probably whack me for saying that..but her love for these children knows no limits and I am proud of her and all she is doing to spread her loving spirit .

We'll be having a party to support Gail's efforts in Gloucester, Massachusetts on Sunday, March 18th..If you live in the area or are interested in what Gail is doing in Tanzania you can email me at:

You'll want to change the "-at-" to "@" and the " -DOT-" to " ."

Funny joke. It is good to see that people dealing with the kinds of issues your blog is highlighting are able to maintain their sense of humor. If there is anything I can do to help. Or if you would like to author a guest post on my blog explaining what you and your blog are trying to accomplish please let me know.

Thank You,

Zach Katkin

You've got some really nice piccies there. I'm always impressed by people who are fighting against the odds and helping others for nothing. It seems that doing something for nothing these days doesn't count at all, when in reality it should be the opposite.

TOM said...

Carol, thanks ...she truly amazes me(-;

Zach, I appreciate your offer, I want to build a site for her and when I do maybe I could give a shout out about her on your page too..she told me she was worried about the joke but...I think that it was good way to introduce her..maybe I'll use one of her cleaner jokes next time ...Thanks(-:

Christa, counts for those who give like Gail...It makes her so happy to help these orphans.

love the joke and Gail is a saint!!

LOL - funny joke.

I always admired ppl who went off to do work like that. Probably because I know deep inside that I'm too much of a selfish, spoiled brat to ever do something like that myself. *Sigh*

Talamasca said...

Hahaha. Thanks for the laugh, dude. Lovely photos, by the way.

Oh, and thanks for blog crashing. Come back anytime, ok? Buhbye. :-)

Through a series of serendipitous connections, I've found myself on your site, reading about Gail Ahern.

I'm interested in learning more about her work with orphans. I was wondering if you might have a link or email for more information? If so, please send it to

Thank you,
