This I’ve Learned

about the teenage girls I saw sitting in the grass at the park. It brought back memories when I would sit cross legged. It was such a natural thing to do. Little did I realize that the day would come when sitting cross-legged would be a “remember when” thing. That’s okay. I’ll just sit in a chair and cross my legs or ankles. And I won’t need to embarrass myself trying to get-up gracefully.

you and your teeth sleep separate.
your bones are getting softer and your arteries are getting harder.
you do dumb stuff, only slower.
you find what looks like a really old penny and see it’s the year you were born.

Use the skin of boiled potatoes to wipe mirrors sparkling clean.
Watch from oven window to conserve energy. The oven temperature drops 25 degrees every time the door is opened.
Keep popcorn in the freezer and pop while frozen. It will be better.
Put 2 or 3 cloves in the sugar to keep ants at bay.

Signs of the Times
Country Shop: We buy junk and sell antiques.
Bowling Alley: Please be quiet. We need to hear a pin drop.
Dentist Office: Be true to your teeth or they will be false to you.
Awning Sales Store: Just a shade better.
Exterminator’s Office: We make mouse calls.                                                                                                                   

Promises are like snowballs-easy to make but hard to keep.

    Hi Theresa,
    The Country Shop above really hit home with me. We have been doing quite a bit of “antique” hunting for furniture and household things that we didn’t bring with us. Some of the “antique” stuff is nothing more than junk. However, they say “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Someone my actually buy some of that junk one day and be happy to have it 🙂
