Sunday Signs Plus

This is something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade.

A woman was at her hair dresser's getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband. She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded: "Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded and dirty. You're crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?'

'We're taking Continental,' was the reply. 'We got a great rate!'

'Continental?' exclaimed the hairdresser. 'That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?'

'We'll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome 's Tiber River called Teste.'

'Don't go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks it's gonna be something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump, the worst hotel in the city! The rooms are small, the service is surly, and they're overpriced. So, whatcha' doing when you get there?'

'We're going to go to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope.'

'That's rich,' laughed the hairdresser, 'You and a million other people trying to see him. He'll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going to need it.'

A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome .

'It was wonderful,' explained the woman, 'not only were we on time in one of Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot. And the hotel was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling job, and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra charge!'

'Well,' muttered the hairdresser, 'that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope.'

'Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me.'

'Oh, really', the hairdresser said, 'What'd he say?'

He said: 'Where'd you get the UGLY hairdo?'

Wonderful signs and a wonderful joke!

I'd like to go to Rome someday, and I'll try to make sure I don't have an ugly hairdo... just in case I meet the Pope. Apparently, he's an authority on hair these days.


My son, brother, and I visited with Naomi for just over three hours. We had a wonderful time, and she served us cookies, brownies, and milk. I took some pictures and videos. Taylor was able to get Sweetie to let him pet him.

That was great. Thanks for sharing. I try hard not to be a negative person and look for the best in everyone and every situation. When things go wrong, I simply say "No big deal".

Hi rachel. Good joke, and good signs this week.

We're getting freezing rain right now and it's already getting bad. You'll probably be getting some of this bad weather soon, so be careful and stay warm.

Love and hugs,

Hi Rachel, I hope that you are doing o.k. during this storm. I saw on t.v. that it is really bad in Somerset. It is bad here, too. I am afraid I will lose power at anytime since there are limbs on the lines coming to my house. My yard is a solid sheet of ice. Take care and know that I am thinking of you. Judy
