Shadow Shot Sunday!

When your friends begin to flatter you on how young you look, it's a sure
sign you're getting old.
Mark Twain

I thought the mallard duck here was the choir director for the flamingos and I was certain they were getting ready to perform, but I guess they were taking a break!

 Actions  speak louder than words but not nearly as often.  Mark Twain

Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. Anonymous

Joy is the feeling of grinning inside.
         Melba Colgrove

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
 George Bernard Shaw

As You Slide Down the Banister of Life in 2012 - Remember


1. Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert have written
 an impressive new book. It's called .... 'Ministers Do More Than Lay People'

2. Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink and be Mary ....
3. The difference between the Pope and your boss, the Pope only expects you To kiss his ring.

4. My mind works like lightning, One brilliant flash and it is gone.

5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.

6. I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once. The seat folded up, the drink spilled and that ice, well, it really chilled the mood.

7. It used to be only death and taxes Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

8. A husband is someone who, after taking the trash out, gives the impression that he just cleaned the whole house..

9. My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

11. Definition of a teenager? God's punishment ... for enjoying sex.

12.. As you slide down the banister of life, may 
The splinters never point the wrong way .... 

Be who you are and say what you feel ...

because those that matter ... don't mind ...
and those that mind ... don't matter!

Watery Wednesday!

Join the fun on Watery Wednesday hosted by 2sweetnsaxy!!  http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to
find it elsewhere.   Agnes Repplier

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.    Margaret Fuller

O.M.G., We're Rich!

Silver In The Hair

Crystals In The Kidneys
Sugar In The Blood
Lead In The Ass
Iron In The Arteries
An Inexhaustible Supply Of Natural Gas.

I Never Thought we would
accumulate Such Wealth!

A New Kind of Supermarket!!

A while ago a new supermarket opened in San Antonio , Texas . It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh.
Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.

When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and there is the scent of freshly mowed hay.

 In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks with onions.

The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread and cookies.

When you approach the egg case, you hear hens clucking and cackling, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.

I don't buy toilet paper there anymore.

Beauty, truth, friendship, love, creation - these are the great values of
life. We can't prove them, or explain them, yet they are the most stable
things in our lives.

Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.  Glenn Clark 

Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.    Margaret B. Runbeck

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
