We have, I fear, confused power with greatness. Stewart Udall
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

You can always tell a real friend: when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
Laurence J. Peter
I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.
Waste your money and you're only out of money, but waste your time and you've lost a part of your life.
Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.

A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.
Time does not change us. It just unfolds us. Max Frisch
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. Henry Ellis
This is an oldie, but it still makes me laugh out loud! If you didn't see this on the Tonight show, I hope you're sitting down when you read it. This is probably the funniest date story ever, first date or not!!! We have all had bad dates, but this takes the cake.
Jay Leno went into the audience to find the most embarrassing first date that a woman ever had. The winner described her worst first date experience.
There was absolutely no question as to why her tale took the prize!
She said it was midwinter...Snowing and quite cold... and the guy had taken her skiing in the mountains outside Salt Lake City , Utah .
It was a day trip (no overnight). They were strangers, after all, and had never met before. The outing was fun but relatively uneventful until they were headed home late that afternoon.
They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to realize that she should not have had that extra latte. ! ! They were about an hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of nowhere! Her companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for a while.
Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point here she told him that he had better stop and let her go beside the road, or it would be the front seat of his car.
They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants down and started. In the deep snow she didn't have good footing, so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself. Her companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking. All she could think about was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the situation.
Upon finishing however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were firmly glued against the car's fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to poles immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh from the icy metal. It was quickly apparent that she had a brand new problem, due to the extreme cold.
Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humor of the moment, she answered her date's concerns about' what is taking so long' with a reply that indeed, she was 'freezing her butt off' and in need of some assistance! He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her sweater and then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out laughing. She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma. Obviously, as hysterical as the situation was, they also were faced with a real problem.
Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the grip of the icy metal! Thinking about what had gotten her into the predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was only one way to get her free. So, as she looked the other way, her first time date proceeded to unzip his pants and pee her butt off the fender.
As the audience screamed in laughter, she took the Tonight Show prize hands down. Or perhaps that should be 'pants down'. And you thought your first date was embarrassing. Jay Leno's comment... 'This gives a whole new meaning to being pissed off.'
Oh and how did the first date turn out? He became her husband and was sitting next to her on the Leno show.

Time for "Our World" again! This is a wonderful way to find the beauty, the fun, the good and even the bad things about Our World and to share them! Hope you will join us! Click on the link to go to the Our World site and sign up!!
This week -- as I'm still nursing my sun poisoned shoulders -- I decided to take an overview of my wonderful world to share with you today! There's beautiful Seattle and the Space Needle, breathtaking Puget Sound, the incredible sunsets, four of my wonderful five children - counting my wonderful daughter-in-law to soon be! I have a hard time getting photos of my oldest daughter in Michigan -- unlike her sister, brothers and mother, none of whom object to having their picture taken, she's usually the one behind the camera -- rarely in front of! But one of these days I'll catch her!! And lastly, there are the fun, delightful things that wonderful friends bring into my life to make me smile and this sign did just that! Have no idea how he did it, but I love it!! And now some laughter to go with the beauty!!

Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start. Nido Qubein
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
