A THURSDAY THOUGHT

a thought for Thursday



WHEN YOU PUT "THE" AND "IRS" TOGETHER, IT FORMS "THEIRS".


COINCIDENCE?


I BET MY AMERICAN BLOGPALS DON'T THINK SO!



*The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is the United States federal government agency that collects taxes and enforces the internal revenue laws.

P.S. Quite excited as my Christmas Cactus has opened it's flower......the petals are like silk. Isn't Nature wonderful.........


BTW....if anyone wants the answers to yesterdays Quiz just click on the question mark below.

Funny and so true! Your cactus is beautiful! I hope it blooms a long time for you.

All tax collectors are evil. Just read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John!!!

Wow! What a cactus flower you have! Well done Ruth! I much prefer it to IRS, which is also the same in Portugal for the same thing. Depressing. I don't know if Gledwood is right, but my last experience in the UK, with the very wicked Mr J. Henderson, tells me G. IS absolutely right.
