I WAS THINKING…
about recently when I wished I had a red scarf to wear with my outfit. It would’ve looked nice. Then a few days later, when I was rummaging through my scarf drawer, I found I had a nice red scarf. Wow! Why didn’t I remember I had it? I realize if I don’t remember what I have, it’s the same as not having it. I know there’s a lesson here somewhere.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
DID SOMEONE SAY EXERCISE?
I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
Every time I hear the dirty word ‘exercise’, I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven’t lost a pound.
Apparently you have to go there.
The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I’m doing.
OVERHEARD AT THE SENIOR CENTER
I don’t mean to brag, but I went into another room and actually remembered why I went in there. It was the bathroom, but still….
My favorite childhood memory is my back not hurting.

For a natural fabric softener and static cling remover, add a cup of white vinegar to the final rinse. It’s mild enough not to harm clothes, but strong enough to dissolve alkalis in detergents and leave clothes soft and fresh.
A leg from an old pantyhose, tied in a knot, makes a great lint catcher in dryer.
Make an all-purpose stain remover with one-quarter cup of borax to two cups of cold water..
THIS I’VE LEARNED
We grow older similar to a tree that leaves a ring for each year. Our actions and attitude carry our history to make us who we are today. Perhaps we may regret or ashamed of some of our past, but our behavior each day continues to add to our history. We can’t escape our past mistakes, but we can remember not to repeat them and know that each day forward can give us history to be proud of. Think about it.

The happiest people are those too busy to feel miserable.
We tend to judge ourselves by our ideas and others by their acts.
