Fri, 21 Oct 2016 08:24:52 EST SENIOR DRIVER http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6254152 <BR> My neighbour was working in his yard when he was startled by a late-model car that came crashing through his hedge and ended up in his front lawn. He rushed to help an elderly lady driver out of the car and sat her down on a lawn chair. <BR> <BR> <BR> He said with excitement, "You appear quite elderly to be driving." <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> "Well, yes, I am," she replied proudly. "I'll be 97 next month, and I am now old enough, that I don't even need a driver's license anymore." <BR>...

It is expected to reduce the number of trips older people have to make to the bathroom during the night. The new wine will b...

I STOPPED AND STARTED OVER READING SLOWER AND THINKING ABOUT EVERY WORD. THIS EMAIL IS VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING. MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK. <BR> READ SLOWLY! <BR> <BR> AND THEN IT IS WINTER <BR> <BR> You know ... time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new l... Mon, 17 Oct 2016 01:40:07 EST THE HAIRCUT http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6250293 <BR> One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. <BR> <BR> <BR> After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I <BR> <BR> <BR> cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week.' <BR> <BR> <BR> The florist was pleased and left the shop. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a <BR> <BR> <BR> 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> ...

Ed) <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office. <BR> <BR> <BR> ~Aesop~ <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State ... Tue, 11 Oct 2016 02:58:51 EST Points to Ponder http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6249005 <BR> The location of your mailbox shows you how far away from your house you can be in a robe before you start looking like a mental patient. <BR> <BR> <BR> My therapist said that my narcissism causes me to misread social situations. I'm pretty sure she was hitting on me. <BR> <BR> <BR> My 60 year kindergarten reunion is coming up soon and I'm worried about the 175 lbs I've gained since then. <BR> <BR> <BR> I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just gi...

Where there's a will, I want to be in it. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> 2. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> 3. If I agre... Sat, 8 Oct 2016 20:43:51 EST Even God Enjoys a Good Laugh! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6176190 There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black: <BR> <BR> 1. He called everyone brother. <BR> <BR> 2. He liked Gospel. <BR> <BR> 3. He didn't get a fair trial. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish: <BR> <BR> 1. He went into His Father's business. <BR> <BR> 2. He lived at home until he was 33. <BR> <BR> 3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure He was God. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> But then there were 3 ...

We usually make it a 6-8 weeks holiday. <BR> <BR> This time we start with a 2 week <em>340</em> of Baltic Capitals on Celebrity Silhouette. It's a much larger ship than any of the previous ones we've done. <BR> <BR> We leave home on Sunday morning and after about 33 hours we touch down on Monday morning in Amsterdam! After spending ...
