This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how much I enjoyed watching the Lawrence Welk’s show Saturday night.
Yea, this Saturday night. His reruns are on PBS at 6:30. (at least on my television).  The Lawrence Welk’s show aired from 1951 to 1982. I also goggled his name and found many of his shows. In my opinion, this clean-cut family entertainment of music, singing, dancing and yes, the bubbles has never been matched. It’s fun to have a fond memory come alive again, even if it’s only on television.

(Benjamin Franklin)

(Woodrow Wilson)
If you give what you do not need, it isn’t giving.
(Mother Theresa)

Doctor to overweight patient: “I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you, you should have lost five pounds.” When the man returned, he had lost twenty pounds.
“You did this just by following my instructions?” the doctor asked.
The patient nodded. “Yes, but by the third day, I thought I was going to drop dead from skipping.

    Don’t you hate when you get to the punch line of a joke and tell yourself you should have seen it coming? As in “skip a day”. 🙂
