This I’ve Learned


about the man I saw with a white bushy beard and white hair. I never gave him a second look until I heard him talk. I recognized the voice of a guy I used to work with. I just had to check him out. Sure enough, he knew me right away. (Of course, it was easy for him, I don’t have a bushy beard.) Isn’t it interesting, we can get old and totally change how we once looked, but our voice stays the same. Now that’s good thing when you go to a class reunion.

(From Over the Hill & On a Roll)
Nothing improves memory more than trying to forget.
Three kinds of memory—good, bad and convenient.
One way to improve your memory is to lend people money.
You never realize what a good memory you have until you try to forget something.

When one door closes and another door opens, you are probably in jail.
For some people ‘drink responsibly’ means don’t spill it.
Age 80 might be the new 60, but 9:00 pm is the new midnight.
If I say, “the other day”, I could be referring to any time between yesterday and 10 years ago.
I finally got eight hours of sleep. It took me three days.

Plants like starch. Save the water from boiling spaghetti or potatoes, allow to cool and sprinkle it over your plants.
Chopsticks make good splints for leaning stems. A popsicle stick taped to a weakened or broken stem might save a plant.
Mend a broken plant limb with a small layer of onion skin.Wrap it around the damaged area and secure it with thin twine or thread. Leave it on for a few days.
Use a feather duster to gently dust plants. Dust can filter much needed sunlight.

You’re only young once, but youth can last as long as you want it to.
Don’t die until you’re dead.
