It seems Henri is semi-retired now. Found this on his FB page...

Happy Holidays everyone! I know Henri has been a bit silent as of late. The truth is Henry is doing fine but he is getting older (as are we all), and the Henri character is going to be semi-retired. Henri will just chime in here as often as he sees fit. He will probably work on that novel he's been wanting to write.

Of course Henri will never really go away and I hope that many people will discover him for years to come. Not that he cares. He's busy sleeping under the Christmas tree.

Thanks for the new thread, Opi, you're the best!!!

And thanks for the update on Henri, Suki. As a lover of old cats, I understand and by retiring him now, he will remain ageless on cyberspace.

And to be fair to the dog lovers here...my personal favourite....Denver the Guilty Dog...

Henri would consider Denver the "grinning idiot."

An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finished all three, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.

The bartender says to him, ‘You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it; it would taste better if you bought one at a time.’ The Irishman replies, ‘Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in America, the other in Australia, and I’m here in Dublin. When we all left home, we promised that we’d drink this way to remember the days we all drank together.

‘The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar and always drinks the same way: he orders three pints and drinks the three pints by taking drinks from each of them in turn.

One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the other regulars in the bar notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, ‘I don’t want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your great loss.’

The Irishman looks confused for a moment, then a lights dawns in his eye and he laughs. ‘Oh, no, ‘ he says, ‘Everyone is fine. I’ve just quit drinking!

Stomachache
Little Susie, a six year old, complained, “Mommy, I’ve got a stomachache.”

“That’s because your stomach is empty,” the mother replied. “You would feel better if you had something in it.”

That afternoon, Susie heard her father complaining that he had a severe headache all day.

Susie perked up, “Daddy, you have a headache because your head’s empty”, she said. “You’d feel better if you had something in it.”
