This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
about recently when I looked in the mirror and for a split second, I saw my sister.
It triggered a childhood memory. When I was growing up with my seven sisters and three brothers, people often said to us, “You must be one of Klunks. You all look alike. (yes, that was my maiden name). I never knew if that was a compliment or an insult.
To this day, I can see a thread of resemblance passed down to every generation. I know now. It was a compliment.

KEEP A HAPPY FACE
Wear comfortable shoes that are good for your feet and back.
Soak in a bubble bath, while you can still get out of the tub.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN…
People no longer laugh when you fall, but come running.
You sleep better in a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed.

IDEAS TO CURE HICCUPS

Put a paper bag over your mouth and nose.

    Hi Theresa,
    Thank you for another entertaining blog. I have had similiar family resemblance comments. Yes, it is a compliment! The getting old section – unfortunately both are very true.
    I have one to add to the cure for hiccups. Slowly disolve apple jelly in your mouth, works every time.
    Look forward to next weeks blog!

    Only once in my life was I told I looked like any member of my family… my father (who was actually my step-father). I told the person that it was not possible and the reason why. I then told my dad the story. I hurt him when I said I told the person I couldn’t look like him and the reason. He said I didn’t have to tell her that. I’ve never forgiven myself for hurting him.
