Wednesday, July 03, 2019

Monday’s Military: You can cry again or You can try again. Choice is yours.~Soham Mondal

Happy 1st Day of July!! Happy Canada Day, Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day, International chicken Wing Day, International Joke Day (Yay!!), national Postal Workers Day, US Postage Stamp Day & Zip code Day!! Ha! Postage Stamp Day is a day my mom would surely be celebrating by sending out cards!

What starts with a P, ends with an E & has a million letters in it?~Post Office!*What stays in 1 corner yet travels the world?~A postage stamp!*What did the birthday card say to the stamp?~Stick with me & we’ll go places!*What starts with an E, ends with an E & only has 1 letter in it?~Envelope!*What did the Americans do as a result of the Stamp Act?~They licked the British!*What do you call a dog on the beach?~A hot dog!*What do you call a cat that lives on the beach?~Sandy Claws!*What was the colonists favorite dance?~independence!

Liberty is maintained by responsible freedom.~Roger W Hancock~~Under this flag may our youth find new inspiration for loyalty to Canada; for a patriotism based not on any mean or narrow nationalism, but on the deep and equal pride that all Canadians will feel for every part of this good land.~Lester Pearson~~Let us be French, let us be English, but most importantly let us be Canadian!~John A. Macdonald~~Canada is like a loft apartment over a really great party. Like: “Keep it down, eh?~Robin Williams~~A federal court has ruled that the U.S. Postal Service must reduce its stamp prices. The change in stamp prices is expected to affect as many as seven Americans.~Conan O'Brien~~A love letter lost in the mail, forgotten, miss delivered and then discovered years later and received by the intended is romantic. A love letter ending up in someone's spam filter is just annoying.~B.J. Neblett~~It seems a long time since the morning mail could be called correspondence.~Jacques Barzun~~Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there.~Josh Billings~~I love the rebelliousness of snail mail, and I love anything that can arrive with a postage stamp. There's something about that person's breath and hands on the letter.~Diane Lane~~I love dessert. All kinds. But there's something about ice cream that makes me happy. I am drawn to its simplicity. I am perplexed by the endless supply of constantly growing flavor options. And I am always in the mood for sprinkles and a sugar cone.~Rachel Nichols~~It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes.~Thomas Aquinas~~Even the gods love jokes.~Plato~~Honest good humor is the oil and wine of a merry meeting, and there is no jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are rather small and laughter abundant.~Washington Irving~~The crisis of today is the joke of tomorrow.~H. G. Wells~~Life is a vale of tears in which there are moments you just can't stop giggling.~Robert Brault

Tuesday’s Twilight: The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it. Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing. People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful.~Michael Josephson

Happy I Forgot Day, World UFO Day, National Anisette Day, Made In The USA Day & Compliment Your Mirror Day!

Who was the 1st deer in space?~Buck rogers!*What should you do if you see a green alien?~Wait for it to ripen!*Why is there no air in space?~Because the Milky Way would go bad!*How do the aliens get their baby to sleep?~They ROCKET!*What do you do when you see a spaceman?~Park in it!*What do you give an alien?~Some space!*What is a light year?~Same as a regular year with fewer calories!*What do you call an American drawing?~A Yankee Doodle!*What was the American patriots favorite meal during the Revolutionary war?~Chicken Catch-A-Tory!

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.~Ronald Reagan~~A purely psychological explanation is ruled out... the discs show signs of intelligent guidance, by quasi-human pilots.~Carl Jung~~To my utter astonishment I saw an airship descending over my cow lot. It was occupied by six of the strangest beings I ever saw. They were jabbering together, but we could not understand a word they said.~Alexander Hamilton~~The energy requirements for interstellar travel are so great that it is inconceivable to me that any creatures piloting their ships across the vast depths of space would do so only in order to play games with us over a period of decades. If they want to make contact, they would make contact; if not, they would save their energy and go elsewhere.~Isaac Asimov~~Your mind has a way of not letting you forget things you wish you could. Especially with people. Like, you'll always try your best to forget things that people say to you or about you, but you always remember. And you'll try to forget things you've seen that no one should see, but you just can't do it. And when you try to forget someone's face, you can't get it out of your head.~John Corey Whaley~~The six people you must find today...-Someone to love.-Someone to thank.-Someone to be grateful for.-Someone to forgive-Someone to forget-Someone to admire." ~ James Altucher~~Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.~H. Jackson Brown, Jr~~I sat there and forgot and forgot, until what remained was the river that went by and I who watched. On the river the heat mirages danced with each other and then they danced through each other and then they joined hands and danced around each other. Eventually the water joined the river, and there was only one of us. I believe it was the river.~Norman Maclean~~I forgot how to throw a boomerang, but then it came back to me.~Hank Green~~Do you want to meet the love of your life? Look in the mirror.~Byron Katie~~Day after day I look in the mirror and I still see something~Andy Warhol~~Everyone is a mirror image of yourself-your own thinking coming back to you.~Byron Katie~~As important as shared memories is the silent agreement that certain things never happened.~Robert Brault

I went to bed yesterday at 6 PM, got up at 10 PM, went back to bed and got up at 10 AM! I must’ve been one sleepy girl!

So, that is why I was MIA yesterday!

But, I was figuring up my fitness minutes for a team I’m on and found I got 1005 fitness minutes in since last Wednesday, so no wonder I was ready for bed at 6 PM!

Still very hot here! But, I’m not complaining! I helped my pseudo-granddaughters learn to swim, really swim, today. We practiced breathing and arms strokes. They did pretty good! The younger did much better than the older.

I came in because I heard thunder in the distance. It never really stormed, but it thundered quite a bit and apparently rained too.

Hope your July is off to a firecracking start! Mine is! Full of fun, fitness and hmmm, no more F words! LOL! I’m always in my best mood in summer months!

*1*Hot summer days!
*2* Being able to go to bed early! No children to worry about!
*3* Fresh tomatoes! Yum, yum, yum!
*4* Sassy. Love that girl!
5* Hubby. Love that man! Love how much he loves his Daddy and how much his Dad loves him!

Wishing you a Happy One!

    How nice that you got to teach those special girls how to swim. So important for kids to know.

    Nothing tastier than a fresh homegrown tomato, except maybe 2 . . . yeah, 2 homegrown tomatoes would definitely be tastier than one! LOL

    HUGS and hope you have a good day.
