This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how lucky I am to have a university as my neighbor. The public is often invited to attend some of their activities. Through the years I’ve enjoy many.  But, of course,  that was one more thing that went away for this year. It didn’t really bother me until I went for a walk through their beautiful campus. There were no young people loafing or racing to their next class. It was sad. I felt the impact of the COVID-19 in another new light. It reminded me once again that my stay-at-home nest is only a tiny fraction of what the whole world is experiencing. But there is hope and hope is stronger than fear.     

OVERHEARD:
Kids don’t know how easy they have it.  Why, when I was a kid, I had to walk nine feet in shag carpet to change the TV channel.
I never knew how much I swear until I’m in a situation where I can’t.
I’ve been out of school for 50 years and still haven’t used algebra.

PANDEMIC HUMOR 
My mom always told me I wouldn’t accomplish anything by lying in bed all day. But look at me now, I’m saving the world.
After years of wanting to thoroughly clean my house, but lacking in time, this week I discovered that wasn’t the reason.
I never thought the comment “I wouldn’t touch them with a six-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are.
I’m not talking to myself; I’m having a parent-teacher conference.

HOLIDAY COOKING HINTS
For an easy dressing for fruit salad, try a grated orange and orange juice added to sour cream.
You can replace sour cream with cottage cheese when making dips. Just place in the blender until it is creamed.
Make the pie shine. Beat an egg white and brush over pie before baking.
Keep dinner rolls warmer on the table by putting  aluminum foil under the napkin in the breadbasket.

PUNCH LINES
A boring conversationalist is one who never leaves any “butting-in” time.
If you believe you are what you eat, limit yourself to rich food.

    Covid-19 has gotten in the way of so many things we take for granted, like you walking through a school campus expecting to see the kids coming and going. I hate going somewhere and seeing the long lines formed outside waiting to get inside. I must say, those lines have saved me some money throughout the year… I ask myself just how badly I really need to shop there. Unless it’s groceries, I usually turn around and head home.
