Putting things in perspective...

Levity on a Monday morning usually brings me grief later in the day

But this is too tempting

So I've got to say:

You're never safe from surprises

Life is full of them

So here's a little wisdom

To take to your grave

You haven't lived to the fullest

Until, you see,

You've been on Fiji Island

And have fallen from a tree

copyright 2006 RDP :)) 

P.S.: it was a Rolling Stone who fell, not I...sigh...there's a moral in this as well, but I'll be good now and quiet. heheh

The moral of the story -
one should not have so much fun, even on vacation.
one should not attempt to pretend to be a monkey and climb tree.
one should not attempt to climb a coconut tree without a helmet,
chances are if you don't fall, the coconut will.

Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones fell off a tree at the weekend and received concussion..
This parody reminded me of that incident !
The next time you climb a tree dear one, put on a parachute...:)
And it's safer to hug a tree...lols

oops, I see I needed to tell you the cause for my unholy mirth: one of the dear Rolling Stones (not Sir Mick, I think it was Keith) recently fell from a tree there...I am ashamed to admit I didn't follow the story. Of course, I hope he's all right.

some headlines just are funny to this old, now you know :)

did you climb a tree?
That I would have loved to see
One of these days I would love to see Fiji
But I am unable to climb any tree
those days are long gone and forgotten.
What I would like to see there is a paradise sunset.
with my mate by my side.
enjoyed this short wonderful write
Thank You Gina

Love & Peace

I certainly hope that you didn't fall far and that you weren't hurt badly. Everyone knows that a trip to Fiji isn't free, and maybe you have gotten off easily. This was fun.
