Childbirth at 65 

(Too good not to pass on,  Enjoy!)

With all the new  technology regarding fertility recently, a 65-year-old friend of mine  was able to give birth. When she was discharged from the  hospital and went home, I went to visit.

'May I see the new  baby?' I asked

'Not yet,' She said 'I'll make coffee and we can  visit for a while first.'

Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked,  'May I see the new baby now?'

'No, not yet,' She said.

After another few minutes had elapsed,

I asked  again, 'May I see the baby now?'

'No, not yet,' replied my  friend.

Growing very impatient, I asked, 'Well, when can I see  the baby?'

'WHEN HE CRIES!' she told me.

'WHEN HE CRIES?'  I demanded. 'Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?'


Have a great weekend

I have this stamp and I love it! I have always been too intimidated to try to color it though, so I always stamp it in Versamark and emboss it with a colored powder...usually red! Anyhow, I love what you have done with Santa on your card, and how you matched everything up! Thanks for sharing your work with us at CHNC Extra! :)
