A Joke for the day. I needed one.

Thought you might too. So am passing this on.

And I am apologizing in advance to any bankers out there.

A Banker parks his brand new Porsche in front of the office to show it off to his colleagues.

As he's getting out of the car, a lorry comes speeding along too close to the kerb and takes off the door before zooming off.

More than a little distraught, the Banker grabs his mobile and calls the police.

Five minutes later, the police arrive. Before the policeman has a chance to ask any questions, the man starts screaming hysterically: 'My Porsche, my beautiful silver Porsche is ruined. No matter how long it's at the panel beaters it'll simply never be the same again!'

After the man finally finishes his rant, the policeman shakes his head in disgust.

'I can't believe how materialistic you bloody Bankers are,' he
says. 'You lot are so focused on your possessions that you don't notice anything else in your life.'

'How can you say such a thing at a time like this?' sobs the Porsche owner.

The policeman replies, 'Didn't you realise that your right arm was torn off when the truck hit you.'

The Banker looks down in horror.

LaConnie Taylor-Jones

LaConnie's upcoming book poses an interesting question:

You have just met a man and your relationship with him is like . . . nothing you have experienced before! Without a doubt, you know this man is your soul mate, yet not long into the relationship he learns he has a life-threatening illness. He shares his news with you and even wants to break off the relationship because he may, or may not, survive. What do you do? Do you stay, or do you walk away?

If I Were Your Woman, I would stay and help help him through it all. If I have to force him to fight for himself and for us I would. For whatever we can have, for however long or short it would be together. As long as we go through it together.

If you enjoy contemporary romances that – make you laugh out loud, tackle sensitive life issues with compassion and grace, and introduce you to passionate couples who make you feel . . . love really does conquer all -- then join me in the celebration of LaConnie Taylor-Jones’ new release, IF I WERE YOUR WOMAN!

I can't be the only one. Is it spring break yet?
