This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how recently it was so hot. But now that summer is officially here the heat seems easier to accept. That’s what summer is about. Of course, air conditioning helps.
I personally like the longer days. I like the out-door activities that are available. I like that my skin gets darker and I can say my hair is lighter because of the sun and not the sneaky grey.
I once heard that every summer has a memory. Let’s savor this summer, too soon it will be over.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN…
You drop something and decide if you really need it.
when getting late gets earlier.
you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

REMEMBER THIS
Wise people are not always silent; they just know when to be.
Don’t be a prisoner of your past. It was a lesson not a sentence.
When you throw dirt you lose ground.
Everyone you meet will know something you don’t.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
(Overheard at the Senior Center)
I can make my own decisions. I just can’t remember what I decided.
I’ve been out of school for sixty years and I still haven’t used algebra.

SAY GOODBYE TO GREASE
(Taken from Easy Does It)
Strain broth through a paper coffee filter to be left with flavorful, fat free broth.  
If grease is floating on top of soup—drop a leaf of lettuce to attract the grease.
Apply baking soda or cornstarch to grease spot on clothing. Rub to absorb the grease. Let dry, brush away powder and wash as soon as possible.

PUNCH LINES
If you think little things don’t bother you, try sleeping in a room with a mosquito.
Two can live as cheaply as one if they both work.
