My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 cents a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.

Lessons In Logic

If your father is a poor man,
it is your fate but,
if your father-in-law is a poor man,
it's your stupidity.

I was born intelligent -
education ruined me.

Practice makes perfect.
But nobody's perfect
so why practice?

If it's true that we are here to help others,
then what exactly are the others here for?

Since light travels faster than sound,
people appear bright until you hear them speak.

How come "abbreviated" is such a long word?

Money is not everything.
There's MasterCard & Visa.

One should love animals.
They are so tasty.

Behind every successful man, there is a woman
And behind every unsuccessful man, there are two.

Every man should marry.
After all, happiness is not the only thing in life.

The wise never marry.
and when they marry they become otherwise.

Success is a relative term.
It brings so many relatives.

Never put off the work till tomorrow
what you can put off today.

"Your future depends on your dreams"
So go to sleep.

There should be a better way to start a day
Than waking up every morning.

"Hard work never killed anybody"
But why take the risk.

"Work fascinates me"
I can look at it for hours.

God made relatives;
Thank God we can choose our friends.

The more you learn, the more you know,
The more you know, the more you forget
The more you forget, the less you know
So... why learn.

A bus station is where a bus stops.
A train station is where a train stops.
On my desk, I have a work station.
what more can I say.

Love Tips By Kids

Some great tips on love and relationships by kids between the age of 5 and 10...


"Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me awife." (Tom, 5)


"On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." (Mike, 9)


"You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, cause she'll want to havevideos of the wedding." (Jim, 10)


"No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deoderantare so popular." (Jan, 9)


"Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life."
(Roger, 9)

"If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long." (Leo, 7)


"If you want to be loved by somebody who isn't already in your family, it doesn't hurt to be beautiful." (Jeanne, 8)

"It isn't always just how you look. Look at me, I'm handsome like anything and I haven't got anybody to marry me yet." (Gary, 7)

"Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time." (Christine, 9)


"They want to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them." (Dave, 8)


"I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when 'The Simpsons' is on television." (Anita, 6)

"Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I have been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me." (Bobby, 8)

"I'm not rushing into being in love. I'm finding fourth grade hard enough." (Regina, 10)


"One of you should know how to write a check. Because even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills." (Ava, 8)


"Don't do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain't the same thing as love." (Alonzo, 9)

"One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it's something she likes to eat. French fries usually work for me." (Bart, 9)


"The person is thinking, Yeah, I really do love him. But I hope he showers at least once a day." (michelle,9)


"Spend most of your time loving instead of going to work." (Tom, 7)

"Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash." (Randy,8)

Well that last set is hard to top, so I stop there. lol

Good morning everyboomie. yay

Today's diner is called Red Eye because I have to be at my friends house at 5:00 instead of 6:00. Then we leave from there to go to Texas. happydance

I hope we don't have to walk. scared

The only positive thing about that I can think of is that we are going to stop at IHOP for breakfast. penguin

Hopefully this thing will be over and we'll be back home by 1:00, but I kinda doubt it. razz

Gotta get to bed and snuggle up with Baby now. puppy

Have a happy day everyone. rah Raw Raw!

Just another fast hello. My washer died an ignominious death and hubby says get new one and dryer. This is coming tomorrow. He already has the old ones out.Then we discovered that the water heater was leaking. It is in closet in bedroom. So now he is draining that with a hose out the back door, poor dogs are locked in their crates and the cats and I are in art/computer room. I have been fighting the flu and would like nothing more than to be in bed. And that is my week thus far, lol. Happy Gaming everyone and a huge congratulations to you Gail. I hope you can post pics of your grand baby soon!! wave

Good morning all. Good day today, but I'm tired. I have a cart now to roll my laundry to the laundry bldg. Did 2 loads today and my laundry is finally done. It was very tiring. I have lots of cleaning stuff to do. I'm resting now and waiting for the visiting nurse to come change my wound vacuum. Don't know how much if anything else I'll get done.

Tomorrow I have a doctor's appt in the afternoon.

Feel well and have a good day.

Nan, how old is g'daughter? How long has she been having seizures?

It was so incredibly gorgeous out today that when we got back from the vet, I grabbed all the doggies and went to the park. Anyone having a grey day come on down.

Now for lunch!

Re: Red Eye Wednesday - 02/06/13 02:38 PM

Schemer -the new cat- went to the vets this AM for his operation and 45 min later they called and informed me it's all over and he is doing fine and I can pick him up at 4 PM. I could have just stayed there and waited for him. I think he will be a really nice cat now and I will air out the house too.

I made taco salad and it turned out good but there's alot of cooking for just a salad. Maranate steak, cook kidney beans and boil 3 eggs and the dishes.....I will eat it with a smile on the face. Usually I eat mostly raw fruit and vegges so this meat thing is kinda unusual.

How's the weather up there. Down here it's 73 now and the sun is bright and it rained this AM. Nice.

Happy Wednesday all

Re: Red Eye Wednesday - 02/06/13 07:45 PM

Hi everyone. My son came over tonight and put up the curtain rods for me. hearts He's such a love. I'm gonna take some pics of my apartment soon and show you what I've done with it. I'm loving it more and more. Rob is gonna look online to find me an easel so I can get going on doing an oil painting of Bob. I think it's time. We sold the easel that Bob had made for me. It got sold when I moved from my home.

Ana I haven't been called that in a very long time. You brought a smile on my face. kissy I had a very good appointment at The Boston Pain Clinic today. I straightened out some things I needed to talk about.

Watching NCIS now. My son said tonight while he was hanging my curtain rods that he met Mark Harmon while he was on a business trip. He was staying at the same hotel Rob was staying at. He got to talk to him.

L4L I'm sorry your son isn't feeling well. I hope he feels better in the morning.

Midgy, I'm so glad you are feeling like painting again!
Posted by: Midge

Re: Red Eye Wednesday - 02/06/13 08:56 PM

I am L4L. I think it's time. The last portrait I painted was of Bob's older sister who died of cancer. I eventually gave the painting to Marc, Bob's nephew and Lucy's grandson. I told Marc on his birthday that now that Lucy and Bob were together in heaven that I needed to give Marc the painting of Lucy because she belonged with Marc from then on. He was speechless. I did the right thing. Before I start tearing up I'll change the subject. I hope you all had a good day. Tomorrow I work at 5:00 so I have until then to get my errands done. My automatic dishwasher still doesn't work. The knob gets stuck and I can't move it. The guys have been up here twice to work on it. It worked once. Now I have to go and complain about it again. They're not gonna be happy.
