The Girlfriends' Dinner

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

A group of 15-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner.
Finally, they agreed to meet at the Dairy Queen next to the Ocean View restaurant because they had only $6.00 among them and Jimmy Johnson, the cute boy in Social Studies, lived on that street.

10 years later, the group of 25-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner.....Finally, they agreed to meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the beer was cheap, the restaurant offered free snacks, the band was good, there was no cover and there were lots of cute guys.

10 years later, the group of 35-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner.....Finally, they agreed to meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the Cosmos were good, it was right near the gym and, if they went late enough, there wouldn't be too many whiny little kids.

10 years later, the group of 45-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner.....Finally, they agreed to meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the martinis were big and the waiters had tight pants and nice buns.

10 years later, the group of 55-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner.....Finally, they agreed to meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the prices were reasonable, the wine list was good, the restaurant had windows that opened (in case of a hot flash), and the fish is good for cholesterol.

10 years later, the group of 65-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner.....Finally, they agreed to meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the lighting was good and the restaurant had an early bird special.

10 years later, the group of 75-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner. Finally, they agreed to meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the food was not too spicy and the restaurant was handicapped-accessible.......

Gentle Thoughts For Today

Monday, July 18, 2011

Birds of a feather flock together.........and then poop on your car.

A penny saved is a government oversight.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement. (Isn't that the truth?!?!)

He who hesitates is probably right.

Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL?

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble!!!

Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words "The" and "IRS" together it spells "Theirs......"

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "WHY" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulders and your hand over my mouth..........AMEN!

A Child's View Of Thunderstorms

Sunday, July 17, 2011

A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school. She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child. Full of concern, the mother got into her car and quickly drove along the route to her child's school. As she did, she saw her little girl walking along.

At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile. More lightning followed quickly and with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile. When the mother drew up beside the child, she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"

The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture."

May God bless you today and every day as you face the storms.

    I liked her innocence. I was nearly struck by lightening when I was a kid. I don't want to be out in it.

I am feeling better today.

    Something very similar really did happen to us a few years ago. Our family was sitting around a campfire when heat lightning starting occuring. Our grandson (Max) was 3 yrs. old at the time. He asked why the clouds were taking our pictures. We do take a LOT of family event pictures so it made perfect sense to him.

Clean Humor.....

Saturday, July 16, 2011

Alas, where has all our innocence gone?

While I sat in the reception area of my doctor's office, a woman rolled an elderly man in a wheelchair into the room. As she went to the receptionist's desk, the man sat there, alone and silent. Just as I was thinking I should make small talk with him, my grand-daughter slipped off my lap and walked over to the wheelchair. Placing her hand on the man's, she said, "I know how you feel. My mom makes me ride in the stroller too!" He had the most beautiful smile and even laughed a bit.

What Aisle Is The Polish Sausage In???

Friday, July 15, 2011

EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE IN SUCH A HURRY TO SCREAM "RACISM" THESE DAYS..........

A customer asked, "In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?"

The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?"

The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something.

If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?

Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?

Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?

Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?

Or if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"

The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't."

The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why did you ask me if I'm Polish?"

The clerk replied, "Because you're in Home Depot."

    I used to work at Big Lots. Some people came in with another store's ad and griped because they couldn't find the item. I learned to ask if I could look at their ad because what they had was not always a Big Lots ad.

My mother-in-law worked for KMart in receiving and at Christmas someone returned a bicycle. When it was taken to the warehouse to be written off and sent back to the company, she looked at the box which clearly had JC Penny on it. Someone wasn't paying attention! Maybe that is why the bicycles are put together at most stores now before you buy them.
