"Everyman's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers." Hans Christian Anderson

OLD ACADEMICS never die, they just lose their faculties

OLD ACCOUNTANTS never die, they just lose their balance

OLD ACCOUNTS never die, they are deleted

OLD ACTORS never die, they just drop a part

OLD ALCAHOLICS/DRUG ADDICTS never die, they just get wasted

OLD ANTHROPOLOGISTS never die, they just become history

OLD ARCHERS never die, they just bow and quiver

OLD ARCHITECTS never die, they just lose their structures

OLD ASSETS never die, they just depreciate

OLD ASTRONAUTS never die, they just go to another world

OLD ATOMS never die, they just decay

OLD BANKERS never die, they just lose interest

OLD BANKERS never die, they just want to be a loan

OLD BASEBALL PLAYERS never die, they just go batty

OLD BASEBALL PLAYERS never die, they just run their last lap

A story I'll tell of a burglar bold

Who started to rob a house;

He opened the window, and then crept in

As quiet as a mouse.

He looked around for a place to hide,

'Till the folks were all asleep,

Then said he, "With their money

I'll take a quiet sneak."

So under the bed the burglar crept;

He crept up close to the wall;

He didn't know it was an old maid's room

Or he wouldn't have had the gall.

He thought of the money that he would steal,

As under the bed he lay;

But at nine o'clock he saw a sight

That made his hair turn gray.

At nine o'clock the old maid came in;

"I am so tired," she said;

She thought that all was well that night

So she didn't look under the bed.

She took out her teeth and her big glass eye,

And the hair from off her head;

The burglar, he had forty fits

As he watched from under the bed.

From under the bed the burglar crept,

He was a total wreck;

The old maid wasn't asleep at all

And she grabbed him by the neck.

She didn't holler, or shout or call,

She was as cool as a clam;

She only said, "The Saints be praised,

At last I've got a man!"

From under the pillow a gun she drew,

And to the burglar she said,

"Young man, if you don't marry me,

I'll blow off the top of your head!"

She held him firmly by the neck,

He hadn't a chance to scoot;

He looked at the teeth and the big glass eye,

And said, "Madam, for Pete's sake, shoot!"


Pondering old age

How do I know that my youth is all spent?
Well, my get up and go has got up and went.
But in spite of it all I am able to grin
when I recall where my get up has been.

Old age is golden-so I've heard it said-
but sometimes I wonder when I get into bed,
with my ears in a drawer and my teeth in a cup,
my eyes on the table until I wake up.

Ere sleep dims my eyes I say to myself,
"Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?"
And I'm happy to say as I close my door,
my friends are the same, perhaps even more.

When I was young, my slippers were red,
I could pick up my heels right over my head.
When I grew older, my slippers were blue,
but still I could dance the whole night through.

But now I am old, my slippers are black,
I walk to the store and puff my way back.
The reason I know my youth is all spent,
my get up and go has got up and went.

But I really don't mind when I think, with a grin,
of all the grand places my get up has been.
Since I have retired from life's competition,
I accommodate myself with complete repetition.

I get up each morning, and dust off my wits,
pick up my paper and read the "obits".
If my name is missing, I know I'm not dead,
so I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed

Good morning everyboomie. wave

Welcome to the weekend! yay

Sorry I'm in a bit of a hurry to get my hiney to bed. It's an early early wake up for me. tired

One more day till the weekend, two more days till my weak end. razz

I hope you all have a superlative day. rah

Good morning Boomies!

Thank you all for your kind words last weeks Hump Day! Hubby and I were a bit under the weather but now it's better. We have been to Florence for a few days. Wonderful and beautiful city. I'am overwhelmed every time I visit Florence.

I hope you all are healthy and in good shape. Happy day to you all.

Last night when the old 'caretaker' came to see me about all the doings with those creepy guys at my door, I had an epiphany. Yup, since they were obviously NOT real and probably sent by the creepy con guy to find out info (I reread my notes and too many things pointed to him) I realized that they may have been gathering names and addresses so they could serve us with papers. Caretaker had mentioned a few weeks back that the old guy (with prompting from con guy) said 'nobody can keep ME out of MY house'. 'I'll have them arrested, I'll sue them'. Yup, remembered that. Put it together with they wanted ME to tell them addresses and phone numbers of the caretaker guy and the gal who was boxing up all the junk and cleaning out the hoarded house, and we to serve papers to all of us. Especially when they tried to get me to tell them my last name. Oh yes. This fits.

I'm hoping con guy does try something like filing a complaint against all of us. I have so much documentation (police reports, pictures, 'diary' of events) which I keep when things happen. I'd love to chat with a DA or someone's lawyer about it all. Loads of witnesses just next door and across the street who also know everything. Not to mention, I called various 'officials' each time and they will have a record of me reporting suspicious doings AND that license plate of the guy who let 2 women ransack the house and who the police didn't do anything about. OH and I forgot. AFter that incident a 357 magnum gun turned up missing. The living room area (which the caretaker slept in just a few nights before trying to catch someone breaking in) knew it was there, knew exactly where it was, and after the 2 women incident, the gun was gone and the living room area was, according to his words, 'tossed'. Fun. If it happens, we shall soon see who gets their hand slapped for trying to defraud the old guy.

Good morning all.

Can't stay as it is time to fix lunch, or at least, to start it.

It is a rainy Friday and Cory says it sucks, especially the thunder. Hasn't been for his walk yet.

We just got back from Sam's. Had to pick up cat litter. Then I put my last load of laundry in the washer.

I'm off to start lunch. wave

Corgis fill your life with Joy, your heart with Love, and your soul with Sunshine.
