Percussion

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

A wise old gentleman retired and purchased a modest home near a junior high school.

He spent the first few weeks of his retirement in peace and contentment. Then a new school year began. The very next afternoon three young boys, full of youthful, after-school enthusiasm, came down his street, beating merrily on every trashcan they encountered. The crashing percussion continued day after day, until finally the wise old man decided it was time to take some action.

The next afternoon, he walked out to meet the young percussionists as they banged their way down the street. Stopping them, he said, "You kids are a lot of fun. I like to see you express your exuberance like that. In fact, I used to do the same thing when I was your age. Will you do me a favor? I'll give you each a dollar if you'll promise to come around every day and do your thing." The kids were elated and continued to do a bang-up job on the trashcans.

After a few days, the old-timer greeted the kids again, but this time he had a sad smile on his face.

"This recession's really putting a big dent in my income," he told them. "From now on, I'll only be able to pay you 50 cents to beat on the cans."

The noisemakers were obviously displeased, but they did accept his offer and continued their afternoon ruckus. A few days later, the wily retiree approached them again as they drummed their way down the street.

"Look," he said, "I haven't received my Social Security check yet, so I'm not going to be able to give you more than 25 cents. Will that be okay?"

"A lousy quarter?" the drum leader exclaimed. "If you think we're going to waste our time, beating these cans around for a quarter, you're nuts! No way, mister. We quit!"

And the old man enjoyed peace.

HABIT

Monday, December 17, 2012

A Habit I worked on - exercising
You work on a habit - (HABIT)
A-bit remains - (ABIT)
Work some more – bit remains - (BIT)
Work some more – it remains - (IT)
Ultimately we don’t even have to think about working some more and some more, for ‘it’ remains with us as a part of our nature.

  Very true .... make exercising our habit and it won't even seemed like a "workout" to be dreaded but something that is our second nature.
Thanks for sharing.

Why could Shiva not work with His computer?

Because Ganesha ran away with the mouse.

Little Johnny

Monday, May 07, 2012

Little Johnny was at football practice one day and the coach said
"Who here thinks they can jump higher than the goal posts?"

Immediately little Johnny said, "Ooh me sir me"

The coach then said, "But Johnny you are the worst in the team!"

Then Johnny said, "I know, but goalposts can’t jump!"
