About The Story Reading Ape

It does not matter if you blog once a week, once a day or several times a day but it does matter that it is consistent. We all love the fact that people who have dropped in on the off chance keep coming back for more. In my opinion it is down to the quality of the posts and also the expectation that readers will find something of interest.

The Story Reading Ape has this down to a fine art and the list of subjects that adorn his enclosure is lengthy. He is…

Smorgasbord Laughter Academy – Heavens Above and the other one!

Thank you so much for making us laugh and giggle, Sally Cronin. I had a lot of fun with these. 🙂

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

A few jokes about heaven and hell… with no disrespect intended.. we all have our own version of what is to come and just hope that humour and laughter is included in the package.

God and Eve, for the Girls.

“ God I have a problem.”

“What’s the problem Eve?”

“I know that you created me and provided this beautiful garden and all these wonderful animals as well as that hilarious comedic snake, but I’m just not happy.”

“And why is that Eve?” “God I am lonely and bored and I am sick to death of apples!”

“Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution, I shall create a man for you.”

“Man, what is that God?”

“A flawed, base, creature with many bad traits. He’ll lie, cheat and be vain. He will be witless and will revel in childish things. He will be bigger than you and will…

Time for some laffs – Driving Grandmothers, mechanical cows and inflight service!

Thank you for this wonderful humor, Sally. I had so much fun! 😀

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

A visit to the archives from 2015 for some recyclables… so to speak.

Got a letter from Grandma the other day. She writes:

The other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw a “Honk if you love Jesus” bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

Boy, I’m glad I did! What an uplifting experience that followed!

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is, and I didn’t notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn’t honked, I’d never have noticed. I found that LOTS of people love Jesus!

Why, while I…

Smorgasbord – Time for some Laffs – Out of the mouths of babes!

Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful humorous post with us. 🙂

laffsMy thanks to my lovely friend Mrs. T who sent the following laffs to me… I have embellished with some funnies from Facebook in recent months.

child-sleeping

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human, because even though it was a very large mammal, its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

Little girl: ‘When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah.’

Teacher: ‘What if Jonah went to hell?’

Little girl: ‘Then you ask him.’

Smorgasbord Author Promotion 2017 – If you are in Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore.

Sally Cronin of Smorgasbord provides us with another authors promotion platform: Sally’s Café and Bookstore.
Thank you very much Sally!

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

sally's cafe and bookstore

I think most of you are now familiar with the virtual Cafe and Bookstore that has been in place for most of 2016.  There are now 120 authors in the bookstore with four of their bookcovers with a link to Amazon to buy the books and their websites for contact.

I want to build on this in 2017 and use it as a promotional platform.  A least twice a week I will do a Cafe and Bookstore Update featuring the authors who are in the bookstore with their latest release and a review of their previous books… or the most recent review for their last release.

With three authors per update this also results in extra coverage as I do ask the authors to share on their own networks.. with three authors across social media this drives more traffic to the post benefiting all the authors.

This brings me to…
