A visitor from Holland was chatting with his American friend and was jokingly explaining about the red, white and blue in the Netherlands flag. "Our flag symbolizes our taxes," he said. "We get red when we talk about them, white when we get our tax bill, and blue after we pay them."
"That's the same with us," the American said, "only we see stars, too."

Bottle of Wine
For all of us who are married, were married, wish you were married, or wish you weren't married, this is something to smile about the next time you open a bottle of wine.
Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.
With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.
"What's in the bag?" asked the old woman.
Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine. got it for my husband." The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said, "Good trade."

I stepped out a bit today so to speak-I took a Zumba class. I didn't know what to expect or really even exactly what it was. It was an hour of lots of movement to fast music that did challenge me. I am not young though I don't think of myself as old either. I thought as we were "Zumba-ing" that my husband would laugh should he see me. I also thought I wasn't doing too bad for the first time out. However, it wasn't "Dancing With The Stars" either. The instructor was very good and very petite. Ever so often she would just spontaneously do what I call a "Rebel Yell" (being from the South), which from time to time completely startled me. It was so interesting and called on reserves I wasn't sure I had that I think I will do it again next week!
