One Quiet Moment

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And  today?
Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present.

One Quiet Moment

One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Having a Bad Day??

So you think you're having a bad day...
then you step outside of your house...
look up into
the Beautiful blue sky...
and see this !!!!!
All of a sudden, that smile comes back to your face and you say to yourself
Now that's a big ass balloon !!!
and things don't seem quite so bad !!!

One Quiet Moment

Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.
Markus Zusak

Ah! At Last! Blonde MEN Jokes!!

A friend told the blonde man: “Christmas is on a Friday this year.”
The blonde man then said, “Let’s hope it’s not the 13th.”
Two blonde men find three grenades, and they decide to take them  to a police station.
 One asked: ”What if one explodes before we get there?”
 The other says: “We’ll lie and say we only found two.”
A woman phoned her blonde neighbor man and said: “Close your curtains the next time you and your wife are having sex. The whole street was watching and laughing at you yesterday.”
 To which the blonde man replied: “Well the joke’s on all of you because I wasn’t even at home yesterday.”
A blonde man is in the bathroom and his wife shouts: “Did you find the shampoo?”
He answers, “Yes, but I’m not sure what to do…it’s for dry hair, an I’ve just wet mine
A blonde man goes to the vet with his goldfish. “I think it’s got epilepsy,” he tells the vet. The vet takes a look and says, “It seems calm enough to me”.  The blonde man says, “Wait, I haven’t taken it out of the bowl yet”.
A blonde man spies a letter lying on his doormat. It says on the envelope “DO NOT BEND”. He spends the next 2 hours trying to figure out how to pick it up.
A blonde man shouts frantically into the phone, “My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only to minutes apart!”
“Is this her first child?” asks the Doctor.
“No” he shouts,, “this is her husband!”
A blonde  man was driving home, drunk as a skunk. Suddenly he has to swerve to avoid a tree, then another, then another. A cop pulls him over, so he tells the cop about the trees in the road. The cop says, “That’s your air freshener swinging about.”
A blonde man’s dog goes missing and he is frantic. His wife says “Why don’t you put an ad in the paper?”
He does, but two weeks later the dog is still missing.
“What did you put in the paper?” his wife asks.
“Here boy!” He replies.
A blonde man is in jail. Guard looks in his cell and see him hanging by his feet. “Just WHAT are you doing?” he asks.
“Hanging myself,” the blond replies.
“It should be around your neck” says the guard.
“I tried that,” he replies, “but then I couldn’t breathe”.
(This actually makes sense)
An Italian tourist asks a blonde man: “Why do Scuba divers fall backwards off their boats?”
To which the blonde man replies ”If they fell forward, they’d sill be in the boat.”

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.
