"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Ladder jokes

Here are the jokes I shared in today's Live Chat session on Skype:-

Micky was working so hard carrying bricks up and down a ladder that his work mates started to get worried about him. ‘Why are you working so hard Micky?’ they asked. “Don’t worry,’ Micky replied, ‘I’ve got them fooled, it’s the same load of bricks each time.’

    The party

    Why did the man bring a ladder to a party?

    He heard the drinks were on the house.

    How do you get down from a ladder?

    You don’t get down from a ladder, you get down from a duck.

    And for @aladdin -

    I fell off a 50 foot ladder yesterday. Good thing I was on the bottom rung!

    I’ve broken my head finding out the second meaning in your remark «You'd have to come and hijack our conversation about ladders» of today's Live Chat session on Skype. But why can’t I see this smart questions?

    Pat: Have you got a good hold on that paint brush, Mick?

    Mick: Yes, I do,Pat. Why?

    Pat: Well, hold on tight, because I'm taking the ladder away.
