This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how I hadn’t seen as many birds in my yard lately. Then it dawned on me that I needed to put bird seed in the feeder.
It worked. They came. But I wonder…. how did the birds know? Do they fly around looking? Those seeds are pretty small.
Do you suppose one scouts out and then communicates with others? They must have the same instinct as the ground squirrel who found my tomatoes. I wonder what they have that I don’t. Heck, sometimes I can’t even find the remote when it’s right under my nose.

YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING OLD WHEN…
your memory helps you remember people, but not their names.
you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

KEEP A HAPPY FACE
Keep learning. There are so many fun things to learn. Find your interest.
Never let your mind be idle. It was once said, “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.”

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
(Taken from Facebook)
Everyone PLEASE be careful because people are going crazy from being locked down at home!
I was just talking about this with the microwave and the toaster while drinking my coffee, and we all agreed that things are getting bad.
I didn’t mention any of this to the washing machine, because she puts a different spin on EVERYTHING!! Certainly, couldn’t share with the fridge, cause he’s been acting cold and distant!
In the end, the iron straightened me out! She said the situation isn’t all that pressing and all the wrinkles will soon get ironed out! The vacuum, however, was very unsympathetic…told me to just suck it up! But the fan was VERY optimistic and gave me hope that it will all blow over soon! The toilet looked a bit flushed but didn’t say anything when I asked its opinion, but the front door said I was becoming unhinged and the doorknob told me to get a grip!! You can just about guess what the curtains told me: they told me to “pull myself together!”
We will survive!!

TIPS FOR THE DRYER
(Taken from Haley’s Hints)
If you forgot to take clothes out of the dryer, throw in a wet towel and let it tumble another cycle. That should take out some of the wrinkles.
To keep jeans or cords from wrinkling, fold the wet jeans as you normally would when dry, then lay flat in the dryer.
To fluff up a feather pillow, tumble in dryer along with two or three tennis balls.

    Thanks for the Lighter Side. Unfortunately, it will take many more months or years to end this in the U.S. since so many still think this is a hoax.

    Loved the Lighter Side—talking appliance must have turned 80, cause they are pretty WISE.
    Yes, amazing how birds know the minute the feeder is filled.

    Love it all… especially the talking appliances 🙂 And I know what you mean about the bird feeder… fill it up and the birds return. Magical, mystical or miracle?
