This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how our appearance changes and we don’t see it when it’s happening. Then one day we notice. It’s seems unreal to see a child change so much in a short time. How does it happen? Do they grow such a tiny bit every day that we can’t see it? 
Remember when we were kids, we couldn’t wait for our birthdays so we could say we were a year older?  And the people we knew, who were the age we are now, were old. I mean ‘really, really old’.  Where have the years gone?
Gosh, I never thought this ‘really, really old’ stuff would happen so soon.

KEEP A HAPPY FACE
Forget your regrets. There is absolutely nothing that can change it.
It’s better to accept than to deny.

YOU KNOW YOU’RE ARE GETTING OLD WHEN YOU START A SENTENCE WITH…
“Did I tell you this already?” or 
“What was I talking about?”

WORDS OF WISDOM
If it’s not broken, don’t try to fix it.
Save for something you really want.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
Once again John saw his neighbor standing in his front yard. Curiosity finally got the best of him so he walked over to him. 
“I’m concerned.  I notice you often just stand out here in your front yard.”
“Oh, it’s nothing to worry about”, he answered. “Whenever my wife practices singing, I want the neighbors to see me so they won’t think there’s domestic abuse.”

ABOUT EGGS
(Taken from Easy Does It)
When boiling eggs, add a pinch of salt and the shell will come off easily.
Stretch food budget and get fluffy eggs by beating bread crumbs into your scrambled eggs.
If egg cracks during boiling, add a splash of vinegar to the water to seal crack.

PUNCH LINES
Life is like a bicycle—to stay upright you’ve got to keep peddling.
The only thing worse than growing old is to be denied the privilege.

    When I remember, I put a splash of vinegar in water before boiling eggs. Going to try the salt also. Thank you!
