This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
about my fun trip to Illinois last week to visit friends and attend our family reunion. Since last year kept us apart, it was even more special.
Having ten siblings (only one is deceased), we are now enjoying the many great-nieces and nephews. 
I always wondered if it was a compliment or an insult when someone who hadn’t seen me for awhile would tell me that I looked the same. When I was told that last week, I grabbed it as a compliment and ran with it. Who knows if I’ll ever hear that again.


ON THE POSITIVE SIDE
Birthdays are good for you; the more you have, the longer you live.
Working for God on earth doesn’t pay much, but retirement is out of this world.
A happy person is someone who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
Have you ever wondered?
Why a short week is four days and a long weekend is three days?
Do we make too little or spend too much?
If stores advertise that they are lowering their prices every day, how come nothing is free yet?
Why so many people your age are older than you?

OVERHEARD AT THE SENIOR CENTER
I finally figured out what I want to be when I get old…younger.
I guess my poor eyesight is nature’s way of protecting me from shock when I walk past a mirror.

QUICK WALL PATCH & COVER UP
(Taken from Easy Does It)
Use equal parts salt and starch with water to make a stiff putty for filling holes in plaster walls before painting.
Cover a stain on white ceiling or wall with a dab of white shoe polish.
Soften hardened paint on brushes by soaking in hot vinegar. Follow up by washing with warm soapy water.

PUNCH LINES
The only person who can make money by going into a hole is a miner.
Don’t engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person.
