I WAS THINKING…
about driving on the freeway. I never stop being amazed how so many cars can be so close together and move almost in sync. Of course, there are accidents, but nothing compared to the number of cars involved. I never drove on the freeway until we moved to California from Illinois. My first reaction was…No Way! I’m not going there! I’ll never learn to survive in that traffic!
As it turned out, I couldn’t survive if I didn’t challenge that sea of headlights.
Since we’re surrounded by freeways, it was either jump in or stay home. I’ve never been very good at just staying home.
YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING OLD WHEN…
you go the extra mile. (because you missed the exit on the freeway)
you never leave the house without a sweater.
you have no idea what the young people are talking about.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
A tour bus full of seniors drives down a highway, when a little old lady taps the driver on the shoulder. She offers him a handful of almonds, which he gratefully munches up.
After about 15 minutes, she taps him on the shoulder again and hands him another handful of almonds. She repeats the gesture about eight more times.
At the ninth time, he asks the little old lady why they don’t eat the almonds themselves, to which she replies that it’s not possible because they can’t chew them with their dentures and old teeth.
“Why do you buy them then?” he asks puzzled.
The old lady answers, “We just love the chocolate around them.”

Send papers in the mail that you don’t want to fold by wrapping them around a cardboard tube taken from an aluminum foil box. Cover with paper or foil, place back in the aluminum foil box, wrap and mail.
Not sure how much wrapping paper you’ll need? Wind a string around the package, add 2 inches. Use as a measuring guide to cut the wrapping paper.
To have a package tied really tight, moisten twine before tying. It will dry snug.
