Summary of Life


GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:

1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptise cats.
2) When your Mum is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
6) Don't sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don't wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandpa's lap.



GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:

1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fibre, not the toy.





GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD

1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.




THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE:

1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.



SUCCESS:

At age 4 success is . . . not piddling in your pants.
At age 12 success is . . . having friends.
At age 17 success is . . having a drivers licence.
At age 35 success is . having money.
At age 50 success is . . . having money.
At age 70 success is . .. . having a drivers licence.
At age 75 success is . . . having friends.
At age 80 success is . . . not piddling in your pants.



Pass this on to someone who could use a laugh.

Always remember to forget the troubles that pass your way;
BUT NEVER forget the blessings that come each day.


Have a wonderful day with many *smiles*


Take the time to live!!!
Life is too short. Dance naked.

Freezing temperatures are here!?


I just had to share. This is from the local newstation's weather report. It started with "Freezing temperatures are here!". The weather reporters are absolutely giddy down here. Just like when the hurricanes are coming. There is this scary look in their eyes.

"Yesterday's cold front has brought our coldest temperatures since last winter. In fact, the last time Orlando was 41 degrees or lower was March 6th. Areas north and west will need to protect plants due to frosty or even freezing weather.

A chilly start to your Saturday then a nice recovery for the afternoon. Highs in the 70s through the weekend."

When will I ever learn..........

not to become that person who is scary and over-friendly? Who chases people he wants as friends away? Who should know that silence is a nice way of saying "I'm not interested".

I've changed a lot; now know that what was said was true in this comment I just had to save:

"One should hope, "never" would be a GOOD answer to that question. Perhaps that someone is simply busy?

The world is short on friendly these days, Kev. It's not you. It's the universe.

Stay sweet, life's better that way."

I like to.............


Wear a red golf shirt when I go shopping at Target. Confuses my fellow shoppers.



"The Hard Way Every Time" Written by - Jim Croce


I originally went looking for a Jim Croce page after hearing the commercial that features his song "I've Got a Name" and came across this one. It was one I didn't remember until hearing it. Seeing Jim Croce died in 1973, it had been a while since I had really listened to his music. But I listened to this song the other night and damn, that could be me. All my life it seems "I've learned the hard way every time".

Yeah, I've had my share of broken dreams
And more than a couple of falls
And in chasin' what I thought were moonbeams
I have run into a couple of walls
But in looking back at the places I've been
The changes that I've left behind
I just look at myself to find
I've learned the hard way every time

'Cause I've had my share of good intentions
And I've made my share of mistakes
And I've learned at times it's best to bend
'Cause if you don't well those are the breaks
Should have listened to all the things I was told
But I was young and too proud at the time
Now I look at myself to find
I learn the hard way ev'ry time

But in looking back at the lessons I've learned
And the mountains I wanted to climb
I just look at myself to find
I've learned the hard way ev'ry time

'Cause I've had my share of broken dreams
And more than a couple of falls
And in chasin' what I thought were moonbeams
I have run into a couple of walls
But in looking back at the faces I've been
I would sure be the first one to say
When I look at myself today
Wouldn'ta done it any other way

I Want To Put On My My My My My Boogie Shoes


After watching all the dance shows of late, I now regret scorning dance in my youth. In my days growing up, it was "Death Before Disco", and I was into Pink Floyd (try dancing to that) Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, Ted Nugent, Led Zep; you get the drift, so I basically was not interested in dance. People say it is never too late, but.........

who would be my partner? lol

Amazing Race

Tonight another race starts. I first started watching "The Amazing Race" because nothing else was on. I soon found that it was a very addictive show. For those who have never watched it, you should. Here you can find the rules and history of the Race. I'm also including some of Charlie McCollum's newspaper article:

"Meanwhile, on the weekend TV front, "The Amazing Race'' — which looked for a while like it wouldn't be back until the summer — zips back onto the CBS with its 12th edition Sunday at 8 p.m. (Our thanks for that go to the train wreck that was "Viva Laughlin'' — canceled after just two episodes.

The series, in which 11 teams compete in an around-the-world race, has lost some spark in recent seasons, but it's still the classiest (and at its best, one of the most addictive) reality shows on television. This time, the teams include fathers and daughters, grandfathers and grandsons, dating goths, dating non-goths, married lesbian ministers, sisters and just good friends. Starting from Los Angeles — at the Playboy Mansion, of all places — this season's race will cover
30,000 miles and five countries never before visited, including
Ireland (the first stop) and Croatia.

Let the "Race'' begin!"

I couldn't agree more- Let's go!

This is why I live in Florida. Fall is finally here. (But for how long?)

This morning when I opened the door I could feel it. It was cooler; there was barely any humidity. I knew from living all my life here what the day was going to be like. Today was the first day it felt like fall. Temps in the low 70's, blue skies with no clouds in them, and like I said, barely any humidity. This will probably last about 2 months, if even that long, then it will get cold. A friend in PA called me today and told me it was sweater and coat weather up there.She lived down here for about a year and is torn. She misses, as she says, "All those Florida things", including the temps (even the 90's), but she is with her family in Bethlehem. Family is first to her.

Hello Fall. Welcome in.
