THE ASSASSIN

Monday, February 20, 2012



The FBI had an opening for an assassin.

After all the background checks, interviews and testing were done, there were three finalists: two men and a woman.

For the final test, the FBI agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.
...
We must know that you will follow your instructions no matter what the circumstances. Inside the room you will find your wife sitting in a chair. Kill her!!

The man said, You can't be serious. I could never shoot my wife.

The agent said, Then you re not the right man for this job.
Take your wife and go home.

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes.
The man came out with tears in his eyes. I tried, but I can't kill my wife, he said. The agent said, You don t have what it takes.
Take your wife and go home.

Finally, it was the woman's turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room.
Shots were heard, one after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet.
The door opened slowly and there stood the woman, wiping the sweat from her brow.

This gun is loaded with blanks, she said. I had to beat him to death with the chair.

MORAL:

Women are crazy. Don't mess with them

RA, GOUT????

Saturday, February 18, 2012

The doctor's office called yesterday & the blood work showed I had normal uric acid level. (not gout?). She (the doctor) wanted me to take some gout medicine for 30 days just to see if it would help, but when I got to the drug store I refused to get it. (It was not generic & even with insurance the co-pay was too high). They used to have a generic for it, but do not anymore.

Now I have done some more research on the net & think it could be rheumatoid arthritis. My daddy had RA in his hands & I remember how swelled his joints in his fingers were & how painful they were). Anyway, after the 30 days she said if the medicine did not help I needed to get my feet x-rayed. I may do that next month when I have to go get my chest x-ray, etc. done for my breast cancer checkup.

All I know is they hurt & I have one pair of "walking type" shoes that I can wear...that is all. Everything else hurts too bad.

    ok well it's not that I ever really like to promote anything, but I have switched to the "five finger" vibram shoes for walking around the house, and jogging and so has my husband. They do take some getting use to as you should slowly work on walking with the ball of the foot striking first...and you have to practice this.
Since using them on a off and on basis......my feet are remarkable better. I was having really bad arch pain and heel pain and hip pain. Now the pain is gone! From some of the research I have done on this subject--it seems to me that many of the "super" supports in most gym shoes actually weaken our feet because we are using the shoe to support us instead of strengthening the foot. My husband who really has some deformity in his feet with crooked toes has improved also---although these finger shoes look pretty rediculous on us.....we swear by them. The other day we went to the museum and did a lot of walking in our regular shoes (walking tennis shoes) because we didn't want to look silly in our five fingers........we both had the pain return, so we will never worry about looks again.

    Sorry to hear you're dealing w/pain! No fun! Alternating hot & cold to the affected areas sometimes works...& you may want to do some research on nutritional treatments. It seems promising...

    I hope you find relief. I have similiar issues with swelling & painful joints, specifically in my feet. Sometimes I can hardly walk after sitting for a few moments.

OLD MAN

Friday, February 17, 2012


A ninety-year-old man is sitting on a park bench, sobbing,
when a young man walks by and asks him what's wrong.

Through his tears the old man answers, "I'm just so in love
with my twenty-five-year-old wife."

"What's wrong with that?" asks the young man.

Between the sobs and sniffles, he answers, "You can't
understand. Every morning before she goes to work, she cooks
me breakfast and kisses me and tells me she loves me. At
lunchtime she comes home and embraces me warmly, and then
she makes my favorite meal. In the afternoon when she gets a
break, she rushes home with ice cream, the best an old man
could want. And then after a gourmet supper, she gives ma a
warm bath, and she cuddles up with me all night." He breaks
down, no longer able to speak.

The young man puts his arm around him. "Oh, I think I see. I
bet you just found out she's with you for your money?"

"No," the old man answers through his sobbing and tears, "I
forgot where I live."

OUCH!! This one hit where it hurts!

Monday, February 13, 2012

This was on my Start Page this morning:

There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you are interested in doing something, you do it only when it is convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results. Kenneth Blanchard

The last couple of weeks (since I finished my last challenge) I have managed to gain some more weight.......have not been doing my walking or exercising.....seem to have lost my "Spark" in putting in the effort to do them.

In fairness to myself, I have been battling a bad cold & it is just now starting to get better & I also have issues with my feet. I have Morton's toe on both feet (meaning the 2nd toe is longer than the 1st). Both of these toes have extremely swollen joints & are very painful. The weight of the sheet at night causes much pain & I only have one pair of shoes that I can wear. Must go to the doctor & get checked.....gout maybe? I always thought gout hit the big toe. Anyone know?

Think I will post the above about "interest & commitment" where I can see it every day.

    I agree with Kitt52 that gout can hit any joint. You may want to read the following article
The article will actually tell you what foods are good to eat to hold gout at bay.

    Good luck on your journey and please, get your feet checked! It will probably make all the difference in the world if your feet don't hurt!

    Hope you are feeling better soon! Following on from your "interest v commitment", I heard that, with regards to an egg and bacon breakfast, the chicken was interested (or involved), but the pig was committed!

You have a wonderfully warm and genuine spirit, and I know you will overcome your challenges and reach those goals you're focussed on!

    I'd suggest that you go to a foot doctor and get a true
diagnosis. I have problems with my feet at times
and it really helped to see a specialist. Best wishes.

    Hope your feet are better. Just so you know - when the second toe is longer than the big toe it means you have a good intelligence. That's what my Dad always told me since mine is too. Hope neither of us get gout.
I think you can get gout in more than one place so get to that Dr. and get it taken care of - things with your feet really get you down. Hang in there and let me know how it goes.
And my Spark Friend you can do this. - just reset your mind and give me that good old support that you always give!

    Glad you are feeling better from the cold.......do see your DR about those toes...sore toes or actually any soreness in the feet will keep a person from doing a lot of things, including a daily walk.........please take care. emoticon

Do You Have One Of These?

Sunday, February 12, 2012


Every woman deserves a man who calls her baby, kisses her like he means it, holds her like he never wants to let her go, doesn't cheat or lie, wipes her tears when she cries, doesn't make her jealous of other women, instead makes other women jealous of her, is not scared to let his other friends know how he really feels about her, and lets her know how much he really loves her.

I have been blessed to have someone like this for 51 years, how about you?

Love you, DH!! emoticon
