One Quiet Moment

The really happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery when on a detour.

An Observation on an Age Old Question

  *What  deep thinkers men are...*

  I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer.

 The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking on various topics.

Finally I thought about an age old question:

 Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts?

 Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts.

 Well, after another beer, and some heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with the answer to that question.

  Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby; and here is the reason for my conclusion.

 A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child."

On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would  like another kick in the nuts."

 I rest my case. Time for another beer.

And a word from Maxine!!

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.
