Lady's Yearly Exam

Saturday, March 26, 2011

I went to the doctor for my yearly physical.
The nurse started with certain basics.

"How much do you weigh?" she asked.
"135," I said.
The nurse put me on the scale.

It turns out my weight is 180.

The nurse asked, "Your height?"
"5 foot 4," I said.
The nurse checked and saw that I only measure 5'2".

She then took my blood pressure and told me that it is very high.

"Of course it's high!" I screamed, "When I came in here I
was tall and slender! Now I'm short and fat!"

She put me on Prozac.

What a witch!!!

Have a great weekend! Remember to's contagious! emoticon

Tired-looking Dog!!!

Friday, March 25, 2011

An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of. He calmly came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head; he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out..

The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour. This continued off and on for several weeks.

Curious I pinned a note to his collar: 'I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.'

The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar: 'He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3. He's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?'


This hit home since I remember when my kids were little my folks asking what I wanted to Christmas. My response........"a good night's sleep!!!!!"

9 months later!!!

Friday, March 18, 2011

Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded up Jack's minivan and headed north.

After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.

'I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed,' she explained. 'I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.'

'Don't worry,' Jack said.. 'We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light.' The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night.

Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.

But about nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend...

He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north about 9 months ago?"

"Yes, I do." Said Bob..

"Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?"

"Well, um, yes!," Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out,'I have to admit that I did."

"And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?"

Bob's face turned beet red and he said, "Yeah, look, I'm sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did.' 'Why do you ask?"

"She just died and left me everything."

(And you thought the ending would be different, didn't you?... You know you keep that smile for the rest of the day!)

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Baby diapers and politicians should be changed often and usually for the same reasons.

Observations on Growing Older:

~Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them...but your
grandchildren are perfect!

~Going out is good.. Coming home is better!

~When people say you look "Great"... they add "for your age!"

~When you needed the discount, you paid full price. Now you get
discounts on everything... movies, hotels, flights, but you're too tired to use

~You forget names .... but it's OK because other people forgot they
even knew you!!!

~The 5 pounds you wanted to lose is now 15 and you have a better
chance of losing your keys than the 15 pounds.

~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything ....
especially square dancing.???????

~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you
really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.

~Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than
he does in bed. It's called his "pre-sleep".

~Remember when your mother said, "Wear clean underwear in case you GET
in an accident"? Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an

~You used to say, "I hope my kids GET married... Now, "I hope they STAY

~You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF"

~When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem .... were unheard of, and a mouse was
something that made you climb on a table.

~You used to use more 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"... ???

~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it

~Your husband has a night out with the guys, but he's home by 9:00 P.M.
Next week it will be 8:30 P..M.

~You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you've read it.

~Notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!

~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.

~Everybody whispers.

~Now that your husband has retired ... you'd give anything if he'd find
a job!

~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet ... 2 of which you will
never wear.

~~~~But old is good in some things:
old songs,
old movies,
And best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!

Love you, "OLD FRIEND!" and YOUNG ones too!!!!

It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of
Life You Have Lived

4 stages of life
