"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 up up!

You gotta wake up first though.

You can’t go walking around all day with your eyes closed you know. cool

If you do, someone is going to take advantage of you, one way or another. rolleyes

If you come in the diner like that, I’m gonna have you stand in the corner and hold a potted plant. evil

Your drool can keep it watered. snicker

Maybe I’ll stand you by the front door holding a tray of condiments. razz

This could be fun. woot

You are getting sleepy….verrry sleeeepy……….and so am I. sleep

Have a happy day everyone. yes

Re: Sunday's - 02/17/13 11:47 AM

Cold then hot now they are predicting cold again and rain. Wish our weather would make up its mind! Gonna make my yard kid so happy since the grass will grow and he will get $$$$$ for mowing. He comes by every few days to check. Fun for everyone.

Outdoorsies are having 'tent wars'. I have two kitty tents. Each has a 'bed' and a flat spot with a nice fluffy blankie. So the 'mom' cat has decided she gets to choose which tent she wants. She is pushing out the poor old gal (who just lost her long time friend) and I'm trying to figure out a way to solve the bullying behavior. Don't think I will be successful since they are all ferals. Can't do much with socialization but I try. Every night I go out at bedtime and lift lone old kitty into HER tent. If the 'mom' is in there she usually bolts when I approach. She was there this morning again. At least someone is comfy.

Seal pool here, which just put in a 24/7 video camera (awesome) is under siege again by protesters. Camera is great. You can watch the beach and all the seals basking in the sun and swimming and having their babies (only at night) and teaching them how to swim, etc. BUT the protesters want the seals gone so the beach will return to a 'children's pool' as it was originally planned by the donor hundreds of years ago. Always in court fighting. Well now, they captured 2 gals at night scaring the seals and hitting and kicking them and pulling their flippers and ears and jumping on them until every last seal ran for the water. It's very sparse there yesterday. Poor seals. I'm hoping someone rats out these two and they are arrested. We have 'nice protesters' who are quiet, don't annoy the seals and just remind everyone the beach is actually open to human activity if you don't approach the seals. A park ranger is stationed there watching and cautioning anyone who gets too close and it works for everyone. Hoping today to see the seals returning and not more stupid humans hurting animals.

Off to Bed Bath and Beyond to pick up a new vacuum. Mine has been officially declared dead but it had a very good run so I cannot complain. I also have to pick up Sams wedding shower gift because her shower is next weekend.

When I get back, I will run the dogs. yay

Gerry, thanks for letting me know about Sue. sad I hope she can get it up and running soon.

Be back in a flash...

Good Day Boomies!! Hi Joe, Ana, Haroula, venus, Gerry, Gail, SpaceQ, Soot, Sorta, Nan and all who come after. Ana, what kind of vac are you getting? Sorry about Cailyn's 'puter problems, hope she gets things going soonest. Poor sweet Evelyne, I hope you recover quickly and that all things begin to look brighter for you. Enjoy your gaming Gail, sounds like a perfect day for it. Hope the old lady gets to sleep in tonight, Sorta. That just riles me about those horrid protesters. I hope they are caught and fined. Better yet, let Me punish them. I would even up the odds by making them swim with the seals in the raw...maybe one would get bitten in the nether regions. Punishment should fit the crime! devil Hope you are having a good day Nan!! Happy Gaming Everyone!! wave

Re: Sunday's - 02/17/13 03:50 PM

Lotus, I stuck with my tried and true inexpensive Hoover Wind Tunnel bagged vacuum. I had my last one over ten years and until the plastic started getting brittle and breaking off a few months ago it was awesome. I am about to put it together and give it a whirl. yay

Nan, no great finds today except for a couple unlucky voles that Merlin took prompt care of. rotfl It's so hard to walk on the ice, I envision myself getting impaled on a broken twig. What are you up to today?

Joe, enjoy your visit. Are you happy you are back home now?

Sorta, I am not allowed to say what I want to here about the protesters but I do wish Jaws would appear and take them out in one gulp.

Getting dark here, but good news. The seals are back on the beach. Yesterday there were about 20 or so, and tonight finally there are over 150 that I can count including I think, 2 new babies. So far everyone is staying at a good distance as recommended. Wildlife at its best, in the open, right next to humans. Wonderful!

I missed another day at the Diner. Sorry guys. I had to shovel out my car as I needed to be at work at 5:00 this evening. A little slick in places but I drove cautiously so I wouldn't end up in a snow bank. Made it safely. Wasn't looking forward to the drive home but I made it. I think Nan's band of angels were watching over me., thanks Nan. Work in the morning so I'll just say I love coming here to the diner. I don't always make it for breakfast and tea in the morning but I'm here in spirit.
