I WAS THINKING…
about Rhea who passed away a few months ago before her 100th birthday, which would’ve been last week. It was going to be a big celebration. Those of us who were close friends with her decided to still celebrate her big day. We met for lunch at one of her favorite restaurants to share stories and pictures. It felt good.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
An old lady with three very successful children was celebrating her birthday. Her kids got her incredible gifts. The first child got her a $200,00. Lamborghini Urus so she could drive around town in style. The second child got her a $1,000,000 yacht so she could spend days on the beautiful ocean. The third child got her a $5,000,000 talking parrot who spoke 8 languages so he could amuse her and keep her company. A couple days after the party, some friends came over to chat and inquire what her kids got her for her birthday.
“The first got me a nice car, but I don’t feel like driving much anymore and the second got me a big boat, but you know how I get sea sick. But the chicken tasted pretty good.”

Cottage cheese will keep fresh longer if its refrigerated upside down in the original carton.
A firm cheese will stay moist better if it’s wrapped in damped cloth.
You can freeze whole containers of milk. It takes 2 days to defrost in the refrigerator or 6 hours at room temperature.
To prevent ice crystals from forming on ice-cream, press plastic wrap on top.
JACK BENNY ONCE SAID
Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. It you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.
After all, it isn’t a crime to be old. A pity maybe, but not a crime.
To make a mountain out of a molehill, just add a little dirt.
The hardest secret to keep is your opinion of yourself.
