Votin Totin Tuesday - 11/05/12 07:09 PM

"It is difficult to say who do you the most mischief: enemies with the worst intentions or friends with the best." --
E. R. Bulwer-Lytton

Jacob, age 92, and Rebecca, age 89, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding and on the way they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests they go in. Jacob addresses the man behind the counter: "Are you the owner?"

The pharmacist answers "Yes".

Jacob: "We're about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?"

Pharmacist: "Of course we do."

Jacob: "How about medicine for circulation?"

Pharmacist: "All kinds."

Jacob: "Medicine for rheumatism, scoliosis? "

Pharmacist: "Definitely."

Jacob: "How about Viagra?"

Pharmacist: "Of course."

Jacob: "Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, Jaundice?"

Pharmacist: "Yes, a large variety. The works."

Jacob: "What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson's disease?"

Pharmacist: "Absolutely."

Jacob: "You sell wheelchairs and walkers?"

Pharmacist: "All speeds and sizes."

Jacob says to the pharmacist: "Good, we'd like to use this store as our Bridal Registry!"

FOXY LADY: Sexy, fashion-conscious blue-haired beauty, 80's, slim, 5'4" (used to be 5'6"), searching for sharp-looking, sharp-dressing companion. Matching white shoes and belt a plus.

LONG-TERM COMMITMENT: Recent widow who has just buried fourth husband, and am looking for someone to round out a six-unit plot. Dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath not a problem.

SERENITY NOW: I am into solitude, long walks, sunrises, the ocean, yoga and meditation. If you are the silent type, let's get together, take our hearing aids out and enjoy quiet times.

WINNING SMILE: Active grandmother with original teeth seeking a dedicated! flosser to share rare steaks, corn on the cob and caramel candy.

BEATLES OR STONES? I still like to rock, still like to cruise in my Camaro on Saturday nights and still like to play the guitar. If you were a groovy chick, or are now a groovy hen, let's get together and listen to my eight-track tapes.

MEMORIES: I can usually remember Monday through Thursday. If you can remember Friday, Saturday and Sunday, let's put our two heads together.

MINT CONDITION: Male, 1932, high mileage, good condition, some hair, many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves. Isn't in running condition, but walks well.

A man worked in a post office. His job was to process all mail that had illegible addresses. One day a letter came to his desk, addressed in a shaky handwriting to God. He thought, "I better open this one and see what it's all about." So he opened it and it read:

"Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had a hundred dollars in it which was all the money I had until my next pension check." "Next Sunday is Easter, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with." "I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me?"

The postal worker was touched, and went around showing the letter to all the others. Each of them dug into his wallet and came up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected 96 dollars, which they put into an envelope and sent over to her. The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of the nice thing they had done. Easter came and went, and a few days later came another letter from the old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened.
It read:

"Dear God, How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me?" "Because of your generosity, I was able to fix a lovely dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day, and I told my friends of your wonderful gift. " "By the way, there was 4 dollars missing. It was no doubt those thieving b------s at the post office."

"OLD" IS WHEN... Your sweetie says, "Let's go upstairs and make love," and you answer, "Pick one, I can't do both!"

"OLD" IS WHEN.. Your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you're barefoot.

"OLD" IS WHEN.... A sexy babe catches your eye and your pacemaker opens the garage door.

"OLD" IS WHEN... Going bra-less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.

"OLD" IS WHEN. You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... You are cautioned to slow down by the doctor instead of by the police.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... "Getting a little action" means I don't need to take any fiber today.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... "Getting lucky" means you find your car in the parking lot.

"OLD" IS WHEN..... An "all-nighter" means not getting up to pee.

Good morning everyboomie.  wave

How is everyone doing today?

I haven't looked in the mirror yet, so I don't know how I'm doing. cool

Either I'm still alive or or muscle cramps and joint pain don't improve much after death. 

I may have to wait until next payday to know for sure.

They say nothing is certain but death and taxes, so if taxes are held out of my check I'll know......for certain.  razz

There is one thing that kinda makes me think I'm still probably in Oklahoma. 

I hear cows mooing.  slapforehead

Of course that could mean something else, but I'm not even going to consider that possibility.  shame

Have a heavenly happy super Tuesday everyone. penguin

Happy voting. thumbsup


I almost positive they don't have computers in Heaven anyway. 

Cursing is not allowed.  grin

I voted absentee a few weeks back. Now to wait it out tomorrow and see who wins. Were some 'politicians' roaming the neighborhood earlier, looking for votes. Dunno who, but they were well dressed and friendly. Probably belonged to the 'other' party. rotfl

Re: Votin Totin Tuesday - 11/06/12 11:23 AM

Oh Gimli! I'll be crossing fingers and toes that things aren't too bad. I had my home broken into years ago and I still think about it. Scary and costly. Hope all goes OK for you!

Voting: Neighbor just called. He voted this AM and said some lady brought her HUGE dog with her and wanted to 'register to vote'. The nice people at the polls spent a long time trying to explain it's way too late to register. Ugh. She just didn't understand, not to mention them trying to get the doggie OUTSIDE so everyone voting would be calm.

Then, the guy who asked why Bob Filner (one of the candidates for Mayor of San Diego wasn't on his ballot???? Ha. WE live in Chula Vista, which is of course a part of San Diego County, but we don't get to vote for San Diego City people. That one also took awhile for the guy to understand. rotfl

Off for a walk. Lovely weather again. DRY (single digits), but oh so blue skies and a great view of our mountains. Maybe I can 'school' a few voters along the way. Hope we have a HUGE turnout today. Last presidential election we had 87% voting. Nice, however in the primaries this year, we had only 32% vote! Can you imagine????

Good morning boomies! I went out and did my civic duty as well this morning. This afternoon is my 6 month follow up for my questionable "squish" I had, so they are either doing a biopsy today or giving me an all clear. Positive thoughts welcome. hearts

Tonight Peter and I are going to get facials at Sam's house. She won a "facial party" and she wants us to come. Should be interesting. lol
They will be very dissappointed if they think I am going to buy anything because I do not wear any make-up.

Evelyne, I too have been a victim of home robbery and remember the violated feeling you have knowing someone was in your home and in your stuff. I hope it's not too bad. Big HUgs!

be back....

Ana, I am in full agreement with you. They should leave well enough alone as far as our hours go. I am still muddy headed. Saying a prayer for only good news too.
Voted by mail a couple of weeks ago. It will be what it will be. I know I am sick of it too, Sue!
Hubby is Still under the edges of house doing more foundation stuff. I think he is close to finish now.

Re: Votin Totin Tuesday - 11/06/12 02:46 PM

Well, I made it here. yay lol

It is another yucky day, cold and drippy. We got out and voted early as I had a podiatrist appointment at 9:15. Stopped by optometrist to get the lens put back in Bill's glasses. Now I am sitting here trying to figure out what I want for dinner. Better figure it out soon or we will end up having pizza. Hmmmm, that sounds good. Don't know if Bill will want it though. Nope, there is meatloaf left so will finish that up. Chile sounds good for tomorrow.

Midgie, can't wait to see pics of your apartment when you get moved in.

Aw Evelyn, sorry to hear about the break in. We have been through that also.

Wishing everyone a warm and fuzzy day.

Lotus lol I never even thought of a pumpkin as a squash. Silly me. I just might have to try that as I love squash!!

I think hubby has those projects cause he just has to be doing something all the time. When winter actually sets in then he can relax.....I hope. lol

I agree about the "what will be will be"!! There is a greater plan! Just will be happy all those ads and signs will be gone.

Bets your weather sounds like ours, although the sun is trying to peek out thru the clouds at the moment. Leftover meatloaf sounds good.

Howdy Space!! Glad work is over. Have a nice relaxing evening!!


Edit: Night Haroula sleep well and pleasant dreams!!

Re: Votin Totin Tuesday - 11/06/12 04:45 PM

Sorta's Monthly Tenant News:

So after my long time tenant's son moved out last October 31st (2011) to be with his FIRST girlfriend ever (he's 55) and she lived about 6 hours North in the desert, I figured all was well. So he visited occasionally throughout the year (with and without her), and then in October of this year, he appeared with the girlfriend during a huge family gathering. So the girlfriend left after 2 weeks (yup we have long 'visits' there all the time'). HE stayed and it became obvious it might be a long time. So I put him back on the rental agreement after 6 weeks. THEN he must have reconciled with the girlfriend and he went back up North again.

THEN last night, SHE drives in with him as a passenger. They proceeded to unload boxes and bags and suitcases and more bags and boxes from the trunk and back seat of her car. It looked very odd, since even if visiting for a few weeks, this was a LOT of stuff. I immediately thought he was moving back in and bringing his things home.

She stayed overnight, and at 7 am, the car left with HER alone. I managed to intercept the mom as she walked to the mailbox and I was RIGHT. He's back for good. Gal dumped him and some of his stuff. He has to get some bigger things later, and his car is still there (needs to get insurance, etc. on it before he can pick it up). Ohhhhhhh! Guess the big romance is off. He quit a nice job here (worked for the Hotel Del Coronado posh restaurant) for years) and never found ANY work in an entire year. Stayed on unemployment and it's running out soon. She is a dentist (making good money) but I think she got tired of supporting him.

So I'm sad that the romance didn't work out, but happy to have him back. He has never lived anywhere but with his parents and he's the only one who drives so mom and dad had to walk or get rides from friends/relatives. So this will be good for everyone. Good thing I put him back on the rental agreement. I must have been using my psychic powers that he was going to bounce back here for good. sherlock

Re: Votin Totin Tuesday - 11/06/12 08:44 PM

Evening; has been a most undesirable 3 plus weeks. First the cold and still trying to get rid of the cough. But knew I had to take Skye in Fri. to have a growth removed from her lower eyelid. She was fine Sat. morn the Sun. morn when I was feeding I noticed her face was swollen to twice it's size. This was on the left side and the surgery was on the right. Her eye swelled completely shut and her ear was so swollen I couldn't even see the canal when I checked. Nothing caught in her mouth. Luckily she was eating, drinking and breathing okay but then started trying to scratch all over so just kept a very close eye on her. Mon. the right side of her face was swollen but not as bad as the left was; called the vet and he said to start her on Benedryl. The itching is now gone but her ears are swollen. Can only watch and wait but seems she's starting to get much better. Only thing I can think of is a spider bite.
Anyway this morning let the dogs out and when they came back in Shawnee was dribbling small amounts of blood. Called the vet, then into to pick up antibiotics for possible UTI. So far this afternoon haven't seen anything.
Okay that's my past month in a nutshell....
Will mention temps have been in the 60's during the day but's supposed to drop later this week.

Re: Votin Totin Tuesday - 11/06/12 10:59 PM

TRippy, I am so sorry you are having a bad stretch. I hope that you and the dogs are on the mend now. hearts

Fun, fun, fun tonight and now I need to wind down. I went grocery shopping after class and just finished putting everything away. It was a busy day day today and looking forward to relaxing.
