This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
about Sudoku. I was introduced to it in 2005 when vacationing in Ireland. It seemed to be the rage there. I tried doing one, but thought I could never figure it out. Now 15 years later, it’s one of my favorite pass times. Every time I begin a new one, I have the same thought. This is impossible. (I like the hard ones.) Once I get a few numbers, I’m encouraged, until I come to a dead end. So, I leave it and come back later. Don’t ask me why, but then I can usually finish it.
It makes me wonder how many other impossible things I might be able to do?
I’m reminded of what Walt Disney once said, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”

YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING OLD WHEN…
it takes twice as long to look half as good.
old age is no longer in your head, but your joints too.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
Two psychiatrists passed each other on a street.  One said to the other, “You’re fine, how am I?”
 Ninety-one-year-old, Frank, described the good days as a time when he wasn’t good and he wasn’t old.
An old lady was at the bank and asked the teller to check her balance. So, he pushed her over.
 An archaeologist is the best husband any woman can have: the older she gets, the more interested he is in her.” – Agatha Christie.

CARPET TALK
(Taken from Mary Ellen’s Best of helpful hints)
Use shaving cream for an instant spot remover. Wash up with water or club soda.
Carpet flattened from furniture? Hold a steam iron over area, but do not touch. Brush briskly.
To brighten carpet, sprinkle cornstarch on it and let stand for an hour before vacuuming. You will be amazed at the results. (That’s what the book says.) 
To repair braided rugs, use clear fabric glue instead of sewing.

PUNCH LINERS
When things go wrong, only two types of people smile: Idiots and repairmen.
Why don’t death and taxes come in that order?

    I’ve never encountered a Sudoko I could finish. Is there a time limit on how long I should wait to come back to it? The paper is a little fragile now.
    Love On the Lighter Side.
