Kiss my—CHEEK…(from SurferSam.com)

A married couple was in a terrible accident where the man’s face was severely burned.

The doctor told the husband that they couldn’t graft any skin from his body because he was too skinny.

So the wife offered to donate some of her own skin.

However, the only skin on her body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from her buttocks.

The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from, and they requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the man’s new face. He looked more handsome than he ever had before! All his friends and relatives just went on and on about his baby face!

One day, he was alone with his wife, and he was overcome with emotion at her sacrifice.

He said, “Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. How can I possibly repay you?”

My darling,” she replied, “I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek.”

donnerA Little Whatever

On February 19, 1847, 45 of the original 89 members of the Donner Party reached California. They set out for California from Springfield, Illinois in early 1846. Led by Jacob and George Donner, the group was taking a new route to California. The travelers were trapped just north of Lake Tahoe with no porivisions or survival skills since October of 1846. Rumors soon spread that members of the group resorted to cannibalism in order to survive the harsh winter in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
