You are receiving this letter because you are a client of either Blackburne & Sons or C-Loans, Inc. Removal instructions are below. Today I'll share a pretty smart marketing tip taught to us by George Blackburne's oldest son, George IV. And, of course, like always, we have lots of cute, clean jokes and two funny pics for you.

Joke Du Jour

Housework was normally Jenny’s job, but one evening, Jenny arrived home from work to find the children bathed, one load of laundry in the washer and another in the dryer. Dinner was on the stove, and the table set. She was astonished! It turns out that Ralph had read an article that said, “Wives who work full-time and had to do their own housework were too tired to (make romance).” The night went very well. The next day, Jenny told her office friends all about it. “We had a great dinner. Ralph even cleaned up the kitchen. He helped the kids do their homework, folded all the laundry and put it away. I really enjoyed the evening.” “But what about afterwards?” asked her friends. “'Oh, that ... Ralph was too tired.”

Much Anger In You, I Sense

I Miss Chicago Joke

I was in Phoenix, Arizona recently, and I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that read, "I Miss Chicago." So, I broke out a window, stole the stereo, shot out two of the tires, added an Obama bumper sticker, and left a note that read, "I hope this helps!"

Smart Marketing Tip

Our founder, George III, is feeling pretty thrilled right now because he is about to teach you a (commercial mortgage) marketing tip taught to him by his own son, George IV. Four (the Blackburne men are known by number, "Four, please tell Three that dinner is on the table") recently said something very wise:

"It's better to repeatedly touch ten referral sources than to speak with one-hundred referral sources just once."

More. (Be sure to sign up for Three's free training articles, right below his picture.)

Angel Joke

First guy: "My wife's an angel!"
Second guy: "You're lucky. Mine's still alive."

On a Personal Note

My father would always tell me that there is no greater joy in this world than seeing a smile on your child's face. I never really believed him until this past weekend.

You see, we (my finance, daughter and my brother) always fly back home to Indiana to share the holidays with family but before we left my fiance wanted to do a "mini-Christmas" here in California. She prepared a marvelous meal for us and wanted to eat before we opened presents, but I was so excited about one particular present I bought my 2 year old that I made her open it before the meal or any of her other presents.  This was a mistake.

It was a new pink "Dora the Explorer" toy cell phone and she loved it. We recorded our voices on it so with a touch of a button she could hear her dad telling her he loves him and call home! It was so cool in fact that we couldn’t get her to open the other presents, much less sit down and eat.  After a long fought battle, I finally was able to pry the phone out of her hands – but not without making her cry and a disconcerting glare from my finance. 

Despite learning a valuable lesson in the process (when it comes to children, give them toys after the meal) it was a true joy to see her so excited and happy about something. My father was right, seeing your kid(s) happy is truly an amazing experience.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Dark Childbirth Joke

Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call. The house was very, very dark, so the paramedic asked Kathleen, a 3-year-old girl, to hold a flashlight high over her Mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby. Very diligently, Kathleen did as she was asked. Heidi, the Mommy, pushed and pushed, and after a little while Connor was born. The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. Connor began to cry. The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed 3-year old what she thought about what she had just witnessed. Kathleen quickly responded, "Smack his butt again! He shouldn't have crawled up there in the first place."
