Peace, Love, Joy, and Imagination…

Quote of the Day…by Alexis de Tocqueville

Alexis de Tocqueville quote from over a hundred years ago:

“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”

Makes you think, doesn’t it?

Nine Things Women Say

1. FINE: This is the word a woman uses to end an arugment when she is right, and you need to shut up.

2. FIVE MINUTES:  If she’s dressing, it means a half hour. Five minutes only means five minutes if you’ve been given five minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3. NOTHING:  This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with “nothing” usually end up in FINE.

4. GO AHEAD:  This is a dare, not permission-Don’t Do It.

5. LOUD SIGH:  A non-verbal statement that means she thinks you are an idiot and why is she standing there, aruging about Nothing? (see #3)

6. THAT’S OKAY:  This is a very dangerous statement. That’s Okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you’ll pay for your mistake!

7. THANKS:  When a woman thanks you don’t question or faint, just say you are welcome.

8. WHATEVER:  This is a woman’s way of saying F@&k You!

9. DON’  WORRY ABOUT IT, I’VE GOT IT:  This is something a woman has asked a man to do several times, and now she’s doing it herself. This will result in a man asking “what’s wrong?” See #3

Thoughts on Getting Older…

Birds of a
feather flock together and

crap on your car.

When I’m feeling down, I like to whistle. It
makes the neighbor’s dog run to the end
of his chain and gag himself.

A penny saved is a government oversight.

The real art of conversation is not only to say
the right thing at the right time, but also to leave
unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

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.

He who hesitates is probably right.

Did you ever notice: The Roman
Numerals for forty (40) are ‘ XL.’

If you think there is good in everybody,
you haven’t met everybody.

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.

There’s always a lot to be thankful for if you take time
to look for it. For example I am sitting here
thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt.

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.

The older we get, the fewer things
seem worth waiting in line for..

When you are dissatisfied and would like
to go back to 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.

First you forget names, then you forget faces. Then
you forget to pull up your zipper. It’s worse
when you forget to pull it down.

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.
