Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.  Kahlil Gibran

The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.  Galileo

Great things are done when men and mountains meet.  This is not done by jostling in the street.  William Blake

What Confuscious Did Not Say .......

I have a wonderful lady friend who is 87 and she keeps me supplied with side splitters! She does have a delightfully wicked sense of humor. I thought I would share some of it today!

Man who wants pretty nurse, must be  patient.
    Passionate kiss, like spider web, leads to undoing  of fly.
    Lady who goes camping must beware of evil  intent.
    Squirrel who runs up woman's leg will not find  nuts.
    Man who leaps off cliff jumps to  conclusion.
    Man who runs in front of car gets tired, man who  runs behind car gets exhausted.
    Man who eats many prunes get good run for  money.
    War does not determine who is right, it determines  who is left.
    Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at  night.
    It takes many nails to build a crib but only one  screw to fill it.
    Man who drives like hell is bound to get  there.
    Man who stands on toilet is high on  pot.
    Man who live in glass house should change clothes  in basement.
    Man who fish in other man's well often catch  crabs.
    Finally CONFUCIUS DID SAY. . ...
    "A lion will not cheat on his wife, but a Tiger  Wood!"
And one last smile!

Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

How strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!  Emily Dickinson
The poetry of the earth is never dead.  John Keats

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.  e.e. cummings

The Potty

A little 3 year old boy is sitting on the toilet reading a book. His mother thinks he has been in there too long, so she goes in to check on him.
He is sitting on the toilet reading a book. But about every 15 seconds or so, he puts the book down, gets onto the toilet seat with his left hand and hits himself on top of his head with his right hand.
His mother says: "Danny, are you all right? You've been in here for a while."
Danny says: "I'm fine, Mommy. I just haven't gone potty yet."
Mother says: "Ok, you can stay here a few more minutes, but why are you hitting yourself on the head?"

Danny said: "It works for ketchup!!"

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.
