PP RAY’S RAMBLINGS:  A blind man, a husband and wife and their 9 children were waiting at the bus stop.  Due to lack of space on the bus the blind man and the husband had to walk.  The husband was annoyed with the constant tapping of the blind man’s cane and asked why he didn’t put a rubber tip on the ‘rod’.  The blind man’s retort was to tell the husband if he had done the same thing they wouldn’t be walking!
