Christmas Clean Up

Christmas  Spruce Up

 

 

Since the month of December started Christmas is fast approaching believe, ready or not,  “Chrismus a cum”. I  had to journey into Kingston to pick- up my daughter from school and as usual I, always trying to be ahead of the traffic because if you  “ linger around” in the city and peak hours, catch you, “ dog nyam yu supa”.

 

On my way home I made a stop at Berger Paints – Spanish Town Road,  the parking lot full to capacity, I started to wonder what’s going on- SALE SALE , free paint or what.

Guess what, 16 days left for Christmas, and you know we Jamaican love to paint and “ fix-up” for the season, who can’t afford paint use “white wash”, remember it, use to paint around tree trunks, stones and fencing.

 

I myself got in the painting mood, I decided to change the colour of my kitchen, these days we’re moving from the traditional colours ( whites, creams and so on), so the colour I decided on, had to specially mixed. Recession or no recession we Jamdowners love to spruce up, just spend within your budget and purchase less, for example if you usually purchase a 20lb ham this year you go for a 10lb, and make it “stretch”, cut the slices a little thinner and smaller, because there’s no Christmas without ham for all “trenton/pork eaters”.

 

This week, all the stuff should be out of the closet washed and getting ironed, clean out the cupboard, windows and so on one big cleanup. Yes! starting to feel a rush of excitement.

 

Walk good, catch up later.

Sister Mary Margaret

SISTER MARGARET MARY, WHO WORKS FOR A LOCAL HOME HEALTH AGENCY WAS OUT MAKING HER ROUNDS WHEN SHE RAN OUT OF GAS.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT A GAS STATION WAS JUST A BLOCK AWAY.

SHE WALKED TO THE STATION TO BORROW A CAN OF GAS TO START & THEN DRIVE TO THE STATION FOR A FILL UP.

THE ATTENDANT REGRETFULLY TOLD HER THE ONLY GAS CAN HE OWNED HAD BEEN LOANED OUT BUT IF SHE WOULD WAIT, IT WAS SURE TO BE BACK SHORTLY.

SINCE THE NUN ! WAS ON THE WAY TO SEE A PATIENT SHE DECIDED NOT TO WAIT & SHE WALKED BACK TO THE CAR. AFTER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL WITH GAS, SHE SPOTTED A BEDPAN SHE WAS TAKING TO THE PATIENT.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL, SHE CARRIED IT TO THE STATION & FILLED IT WITH GASOLINE, & CARRIED IT TO HER CAR.

AS SHE WAS POURING THE GAS INTO THE TANK, TWO MEN WERE WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE STREET. ONE OF THEM TURNED TO THE OTHER & SAID, "IF IT STARTS, I'M TURNING CATHOLIC".
