I'm not quitting this time

I've had enough of starting an not finishing. Watching others participate, existing instead of living. I want to be fit so I can do the things I love - gardening, playing with (future) grandkids, sports - without having to stop and rest all the time.

emoticon emoticon CHRISTMAS SAYINGS emoticon emoticon
Santa Claus has the right idea - visit people only once a year.

On St. Patricks Day I to pretend to be Irish. At Christmas I pretend to be good.

Mail your packages early so the post office can lose them in time for Christmas.
- Johnny Carson

I donít mind fruitcakes. Theyíre the one thing during the holidays Iím not tempted to eat.
- Melanie White

There are three stages of man: he believes in Santa Claus; he does not believe in Santa Claus; he is Santa Claus.

A Christmas miracle is when your family doesnít get into a single argument all day.
