No, not that Meatloaf!!

This meatloaf!!

We had a dog, Pepe, who would eat ANYTHING.  He used to nose around when I was sweeping the kitchen floor to see what delicacies he might glean in the dust.  One day I served meatloaf for dinner, as I had done many times before.  Bud said it tasted funny & he wouldn’t eat it.  The kids agreed.  I said it was just fine.  Bud said not even the dog would eat it.  I said, “Oh, yeah?”, took his plate & put it on the floor.  Pepe came over, sniffed the meatloaf & walked away.  I never trusted that dog again.  I sent the kids & Bud this ecard this year:

Slash, a well-known murderer, had been on death row for nearly 20 years. During that time, he had befriended the Warden. Now, the Warden still had a job to do, but that didn’t stop him from treating Slash special from time to time. A week before Slash was to go to the electric chair, the Warden asked Slash if there was anything special he would like. Slash thought for a bit and said he would like the Warden to contact his wife and have her make meatloaf for him the rest of his life (which by this time, was short). Of course, the Warden complied and each day, Slash sat down and had a big feed of his wife’s meatloaf.
The night before the big day, another prisoner was allowed to visit Slash and asked him. ’’Aren’t you afraid of dying tomorrow?’’
Slash answered, ‘’I ain’t gonna die tomorrow.’’
The other prisoner then said, ‘’But tomorrow is Friday, and we all know, that’s the day they’re sendin’ you to the electric chair.’’
’’Don’t matter,‘’ said Slash, ’’if this meatloaf can’t kill me, nothin’ can.’’
 A man walked into a restaurant in a strange town. The waiter came over and asked him for his order.
"I'm feeling lonely," he replied, "So what I'd really like is some meatloaf and a kind word."

The waiter returned with the meat loaf, set it down on the table and began to walk away.

The man asked, "Where's the kind word?"

The waiter stopped, sighed, bent down, and whispered, "Don't eat the meatloaf."

I don't cook much any more:

I have the most marvelous recipe for meat loaf! All I have to do is mention it to my husband and he says, "Let's eat out!" ----fishducky
