"There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets in the future." -- Graham Green


"How was your golf game, dear?" asked Jack's wife.

"Well I was hitting pretty well, but my eyesight's gotten so bad I couldn't see where the ball went."

"Well you're 75 years old now, Jack, why don't you take my brother Scott along?" suggested his wife.

"But he's 85 and doesn't even play golf anymore," protested Jack.

"But he's got perfect eyesight. He could watch your ball," his wife pointed out.

The next day Jack teed off with Scott looking on. Jack swung, and the ball disappeared down the middle of the fairway. "Do you see it?" asked Jack.

"Yup," Scott answered.

"Well, where is it?" yelled Jack, peering off into the distance.

"I can‘t remember."


A 60-year-old man went to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor told him, "You're in terrific shape. There's nothing wrong with you. Why, you might live forever. You have the body of a 35 year old. By the way, how old was your father when he died?"

The 60 year old responded, "Who said he was dead?"

The doctor was surprised and asked, "How old is he and is he very active?"

The 60 year old responded, "Well, he is 82 years old and he still goes skiing three times a season and surfing three times a week during the summer."

The doctor couldn't believe it. "Well, how old was your grandfather when he died?"
The 60 year old responded again, "Who said he was dead?"

The doctor was astonished. He said, "You mean to tell me you are 60 years old and both your father and your grandfather are alive? Is your grandfather very active?"

The 60 year old said, "He goes skiing at least once a season and surfing once a week during the summer. Not only that," said the patient, "my grandfather is 106 years old, and next week he is getting married again."

The doctor said, "At 106 years old, why on earth would your grandfather want to get married?"

His patient looked up at the doctor and said, "Who said he wanted to?"

A man asked his wife, "What would you most like for your birthday?"
She said, "I'd love to be ten again."

On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a theme park. He put her on every ride in the park, the Death Slide, The Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear. Everything there was, she had a go.

She staggered out of the theme park five hours later, her head reeling and her stomach upside down. Into McDonald's they went, where she was given a Double Big Mac with extra fries and a strawberry shake. Then off to a movie theater, more burgers, popcorn, cola and sweets. At last she staggered home with her husband and collapsed into bed.

Her husband leaned over and asked, "Well, dear, what was it like being ten again?"

One eye opened and she groaned, "Actually I meant dress size."

The teenage granddaughter comes downstairs for her date with this see-through blouse on and no bra. Her grandmother just has a fit, telling her not to dare go out like that.

The teenager tells her "Loosen up Grams. These are modern times.
You gotta let your rosebuds show!" and out she goes.

The next day the teenager comes downstairs, and the grandmother is sitting there with no top on. The teenager wants to die.

She explains to her grandmother that she has friends coming over and that it is just not appropriate.

"Loosen up, sweetie. If you can show off your rosebuds, then I can display my hanging baskets."

Good morning everyboomie. wave

Wake up, sit up, cheer up, suck it up, get up, get up, get up outta that bed!!! yay

Open the blinds and....

"Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sun-shine in." woot

Give your partner a big wet one, and if you don't have a partner then I'll be happy to substitute. kissy

Just make sure you brush before you send me any kisses. wink

Your favorite breakfast is ready and waiting. thumbsup

Have a happy day everyone. penguin

Hey Joe kissy There's my kiss for you. You haven't served my favorite breakfast in I don't know when. I bet you can't even remember what it is but you've been very busy lately. I bet Baby is thrilled that you're coming home. I'm so glad for you.

I think I missed posting earlier today. I had the day off and didn't even use my puter at all. I hope you all had a good day.

Evelyn my heart goes out to you my Dear. Prayers and alot of hugs coming your way.

Going to bed now. Split shift tomorrow (Thursday).

Midgie, I know Joe didn't forget what your favorite breakfast is. In case he doesn't see it in time, there will be a stack of BB pancakes waiting for you. hearts

Joe, have a happy day! kissy

I will be working like crazy to get done and I have to go to a buffet at the reception hall with daughter to check out the food and finalize the menu for the wedding. I don't have time to go, but I'd rather miss sleep than miss her appointment.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Good morning all you happy Gameboomers, (and the unhappy ones too). rotfl It's a warmer morning here. Nice. Gonna be 70 maybe if we get what was promised. I'm ready for warmth.

Sidewalk project still on limited activity. Found out why. The 'inspector' from somewhere, didn't like the DIRT they were using. Huh? Something about not compacting correctly. I remember on the other street, they had to add concrete to the dirt on the actual road before asphalting, but this one is the whole project. Sounds like maybe they might make the company rip out the ENTIRE completed work. Ohhhh! Hope it's going better today. Would be terrible thing. The company that won the bid only gets what they were offered moneywise and any 'extras' come out of the profit. Ready for this one to be done and done.

Off to walk in a few. Will check on progress.

Waiting all day from 8 till 5 for the thrift store to pick up donations (they left a bag on Monday, said to put it out on Wednesday). They never came. Now I have to lug all that stuff back to my shed. Not happy. Wasn't the usual place I donate, and they might never get any of my goodies now. Waste of my time, sigh.

Off to walk....

Thumping Good Thursday ya'll puppy

It is cold and snowing in AL. It's not snowing on my house but it is a few miles north. It won't stick around so the kids who have it will enjoy it, though there is a whopper of a wind with maybe not. We will have a fire later today..a real honest-to-goodness wood fire instead of the little fake log fires we've been having. happydance

Boys will most likely be here today though they aren't supposed to be here til tomorrow. They are staying through Monday.

Their loft beds arrived today so weather permitting, we will be staining them and assembling them this weekend.

I'm sooo tired today....just not sleeping well and it's really taking a toll.

Back later wave
