This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how I wished I had dated some old pictures I was recently looking at. And I wasn’t even sure who some of the people were. How simple it would’ve been at that time to put that information on the back. When we were young, we didn’t give it a thought that many years later we might wonder about the pictures. Actually, even now, I often forget to date important things. Gosh, it’s taking me all these years to figure out how important it is to add the date. All I need to do now is to remember.

YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING OLD WHEN…
you drop something and you decide you don’t need it anymore.
you start a conversation with “Did I tell you this already?”  or “What was I saying.”

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
A man was telling his neighbor, “I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it’s state of the art. It’s perfect.”
“’Really,” answered the neighbor. What kind is it?”
“Twelve thirty.”

WORDS FOR THOUGHT
Forget what hurt you, but never forget what it taught you.
Holding a grudge is letting someone live rent free in your head.

CREATE AN INTERESTING PHOTO ALBUM
Taken from Easy Does It
Boring pictures can make a boring album. Use landscapes and crowd scenes to create a border around the best pictures.
Visible dirt can cause harm to photos, but invisible oils and acids on the skin can do even more. It’s best to wash hands before handling. Consider wearing gloves when putting together an album.

    Hi, Theresa. I hope you had a nice Mother’s Day. Regarding dating pictures, I learned that lesson after my mother died. When we were cleaning out her house we found so many pictures that we had no idea who the people in them were. Since then I have tried to identify and date my pictures so my family won’t have to go through that same thing when I am gone.
