Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

23 Jan

The Hub used to travel sub-Saharan Africa in his job.  The Hub loves travelling, history, historic sites and being present at them.

In the early nineties he visited Burundi. He knew the source of the Nile was there somewhere; the famous spot (marked by a lump of rock; we Africans know how to reduce, re-use and recycle) where Stanley and Livingstone are said to have met.  The Hub resolved to visit it, and did, arranging a ‘business trip’ to the area and spending a pleasant evening chatting with locals and swimming in a crocodile-infested river.  I wasn’t worried: it’s a brave crocodile that would take on my husband in a determined mood.

There isn’t much the Hub can’t do once he resolves to do it.  That’s how I ended up married to him.

UPDATE:

This post is rubbish.

Read tomorrow’s post for corrections.

Q:  How many screenwriters does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A:  Why does it have to be changed?

Three guys are sitting at a bar.

#1: “…Yeah, I make $75,000 a year after taxes.”

#2: “What do you do for a living?

“#1: “I’m a stockbroker. How much do you make?

#2: “I should clear $60,000 this year.”

#1: “What do you do?”

#2: “I’m an architect.”

The third guy has been sitting there quietly, staring into his beer, when the others turn to him.

#2: “Hey, how much do you make per year?”

#3: “I guess about $13,000.”

#1: “Oh yeah? What kind of stories do you write?”
