For those who did not know John, I have borrowed this photo made by John of a a few of His Favourite things.
Photo By John and Borrowed by Me.
On the Anniversary of Your Birthday
Happy Birthday Sweet Soul
You are missed by so many.
Also For those who did Know John and those who did not but like an insight into some of his thoughts, I am leaving a copy of a small quiz some of my friends and I participated in last September.
John was kind enough to join us in this little exercise, something that he said he did not do at all often. Below you can read his answers to the questions and I think these answers tell a lot about John's outlook on life.
I do not usually do these things, but since The deity and Milli are such dear friends, how could I refuse,  here you go, things I have come to realize. . .

I was tagged by Dearest Deity and Milli. .. Everyone consider yourselves tagged. Blame Deity!
John had a great sense of humor and although this is an oldy it is also a goody  this would have been my little joke for John for his Birthday on Friday 22nd of January. I am posting it a little earlier because of work commitments.

What Religion is Your Bra?

A man walked into the ladies department of Myer's

and shyly walked up to
the woman behind the counter and said,
'I'd like to buy a bra for my wife.
' What type of bra?'
asked the clerk.

'Type?' inquires the man, 'There's more than one type?'
' Look around,'

said the saleslady,
as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, colour
and material imaginable.
'Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from .'
Relieved, the man asked
about the types.
The saleslady replied:
'There are the Catholic,
the Salvation Army,
the Presbyterian,
and the Baptist types.
Which one would you prefer?'

Now totally befuddled,

the man asked about
the differences between them.
The Saleslady responded,
'It is all really quite simple. .

The Catholic type
supports the masses;
The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen;

The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright;

The Baptist type
makes mountains out of molehills.'

Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the letters used

to define bra sizes?
If you have wondered why,
but couldn't figure out
what the letters stood for,
it is about time
you became informed!

(A} Almost Boobs..

{B} Barely there...

{C} Can't Complain!..

{D} Dang!...

{DD} Double dang!...

{E} Enormous!...

{F} Fake...

{G} Get a Reduction...

{H} Help me, I've fallen

and I can't get up!...

They forgot the German bra.

  10. i remember the quiz, i totally stalked him to do it. sigh.
    happy birthday, dear dr. oh!

  11. A little footnote from me from today.
    I attended work today and something I do not normally do is give children a stamp on their hand for being good little ones whilst waiting with their parents. Anyway, for some reason today I decided it would be nice to reward a little 3 year old with a stamp after he asked me for one first. He must have had a stamp before at some stage. He actually prompted my memory about the two little stamps that are kept in a box in a cupboard.
    I pulled out the first little stamp I found, not having a clue what was on it, because I have never used them before and I stamped the little guys hands.
    Low and behold what was on this little red Stamp? guessed it a cute little penguin with the words Good One written next to it.
    Thanks JohnO..LOL.

  12. a perfect combination of heart and laughter in this tribute Milli! And how great that he gifted you today with an inside joke to make you smile as I am sure he is smiling down on all of us!
