It’s Going To Cost You…

One day while walking through the Garden of Eden, Adam looked up to the Heavens and spoke to God. “Father this place is great, but there is one thing missing”.

“What is that my son”, God answered.

“Well it would be nice to have a mate, I’m awfully lonely down here and all the other animal have mates but me. All I’m asking for is a creature more beautiful than the Garden, one who has a sex drive like mine, never has a headache and one who will cook, clean and be at my beckon call morning, noon and night.” said Adam.

Adam thought this over for quite some time and then asked “Well, what can I get for a rib?”

Grandpa- Wisdom of a little boy

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eye sight was blurred, and his steps faltered. The family ate together at the table, but the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor.

The husband and wife set a small table in the corner. Grandfather ate alone there while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner. Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. When the family glanced in Grandfather’s…

NanaAkua is a graphic designer and illustrator from Japan. Back in 2009 she uploaded an incredible 468-picture gallery on Flickr that featured the amazing embroidery work of her then 88-year-old grandmother over a span of 30 years.

Her grandmother practices a folk art form known as Temari. Meaning ‘hand ball’ in Japanese, the art form was introduced to Japan by China around the 7th century A.D. Traditionally, Temari are highly valued and cherished gifts, symbolizing deep friendship and loyalty. The brilliant colors and threads used are symbolic of wishing the recipient a brilliant and happy life.
