A Dozen Gentle 'Thoughts for Today' as We Grow Older

bare_elf's picture

1. Aging: eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

2. The easiest way to find something that's lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

3. If at first you don't succeed, shouldn't you try doing it like your wife told you?

4. A penny saved is a government oversight.

5. 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.

6. He who hesitates is almost certainly right.

7. Did you ever notice? The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are 'XL'.

8. If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

9. The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.

10. 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..

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

12. Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today, it's called golf.

ghastley is that why ...

I guess that is why bare_elf has 4 TV remotes that she can never find. Now I hide one of them in the cookie jar, so we can have cookies and TV Smile I love BE but she can be forgetful Wink

Been there, forgotten that

With #2, you find that you bring the new one home, go to put it away where it belongs, and there's the lost one. Two days later, you can't find either of them.

#3: If you never succeed, you don't have a wife to tell you how to do it.

#9: I have two middle names. Think how much trouble my parents were expecting!
