Had two deaths at work this week. Bummer! First one was Dennis former FAther in law. A great guy. The second was at the end of the day Friday - 3;30 - long time resident, Dr Coffin. Apparently he had died in his sleep the night before. I could tell my insides were reacting to the news and whether I had to contact the daughter. Luckily Dennis showed up in time to do that…or the police did. Too much drama. I know in my guts that they are having a great time (a lot due to the fact that both Howard and Richard let Bob know that everything was alright with them) and a lot due to the fact that I cannot believe that the love that we share on earth is a terminal thing. I feel immortal! Just gonna have to shuffle off this mortal coil at some point. The actual shuffling is the only bugaboo I harbor. I am confident of the surprise of the beyond.

    It's always hard to think of life without the people we know. Be stong even if you don't want to be.

God Bless

    Two deaths so close to each other is hard to deal with. Good luck to you.

    Oh my! I'm so sorry! Too much drama, indeed.

I've taken to viewing life as a train trip. Some people get off on a stop before mine. You wave goodbye and see the platform disappear with them still on it, and you're on the train with the others who are still on the trip. Someday I'll be the one on the platform, waving bye and switching trains to start a new trip. It's a pretty picture, but says nothing about how hard reality really is.

What would you buy with $2?

Sunday, February 05, 2012

His pediatrician asked six-year-old Johnny, who watched a good many TV, ads, just to make conversation. Johnny, if you found a couple of dollars and had to spend them, what would you buy?”

“A box of Tampax,” he replied without hesitation.

“Tampax?” said the doctor. “What would you do with that?”

“Well,” said Johnny, “I do not know exactly, but it’s sure worth two dollars.

With tampax, it says on TV, you can go swimming, go horseback riding, and also go skating, any time you want to.”

You can't take it with you

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Trying to disprove the saying "You can't take it with you," a stingy old lawyer, diagnosed with a terminal illness, finally figured out how to take at least some of his fortune with him when he died.

He instructed his wife to go to the bank and withdraw enough money to fill two pillowcases. He then told her to take the bags of money to the attic and leave them directly above his bed. When he passed away, he planned to reach out and grab the bags on his way to heaven.

Several weeks after the funeral, his wife, up in the attic cleaning, came upon the two forgotten pillow cases stuffed with cash.

"Oh, that old fool!" she exclaimed. "I knew I should have put the money in the basement."

7 things a 7-year-old could convince congress are vegetables

Sunday, February 05, 2012

I read an article called 7 things a 7-year-old could convince congress are vegetables. Congress has already declared that the tomato sauce on Pizza is a vegetable. So here’s the gist of the article:

CHOCOLATE: comes from a bean, so it must be a vegetable. (And so’s my morning cup of joe!)
POPCORN: Well, it does come from corn...
MAPLE SYRUP: Comes from a tree with leaves, so this is basically a green salad!
PICKLE DORITOS: 2 vegetables: cucumbers & corn!
KETCHUP: Okay, tomatoes. And Sugar (high fructose corn syrup) from CORN!
ONION RINGS: 3 vegetables if you have fries and ketchup with it.
CANDY CORN: & candy pumpkins. A good mix of orange, yellow, white & green vegetables.

Get your kids or grandkids to come up with more!

    By the way, I was a cook in a kids' camp for a year (school groups year round), and I quickly learned that kids would only eat certain things. The only cooked veg they would eat was corn (which is a grain, not a vegetable), and they would eat carrot sticks but not celery sticks. They didn't mind salad, so that was good.

    Don't forget bacon!!!!! The smoke comes from a tree or something, right?

    Instead, they get food they don't like, that is still frozen, and they just throw it out and spend the afternoon hungry and receive no nourishment at all.

  I think ketchup was considered a vegetable for school lunches years ago.

Thoughts On Aging

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

- The aging process could be slowed down if it had to work its way through Congress.

- You're getting old when you're sitting in a rocker and you can't get it started.

- You're getting old when you wake up with that morning-after feeling, and you didn't do anything the night before.

- The cardiologist's diet: if it tastes good, spit it out.

- Doctor to patient: I have good news and bad news: the good news is that you are not a hypochondriac.

- It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't remember anything.

- You know you're getting old when you stop buying green bananas.

- Last Will and Testament: Being of sound mind, I spent all my money.

- When you lean over to pick something up off the floor, you ask yourself if there is anything else you need to do while you are down there.

- You find yourself in the middle of the stairway, and you can't remember if you were downstairs going up or upstairs going down.

- Maybe it's true that life begins at fifty. But everything else starts to wear out, fall out, or spread out.

- There are three signs of old age. The first is your loss of memory. I forget the other two.

- You're getting old when you don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.

- Middle age is when work is a lot less fun and fun is a lot more work.

- Statistics show that at the age of seventy, there are five women to every man. Isn't that a bad time for a guy to get those odds?

- You know you're getting on in years when the girls at the office start confiding in you.

- Middle age is when it takes longer to rest than to get tired.

- By the time a man is wise enough to watch his step, he's too old to go anywhere.

- Middle age is when you have stopped growing at both ends, and have begun to grow in the middle.

- A man has reached middle age when he is cautioned to slow down by his doctor instead of by the police.

- You know you're into middle age when you realize that caution is the only thing you care to exercise.
