Go here to see some really amazing rain forest sculptures.
Found originally at Dark Roasted Blend.


*******
An APHORISM is a short, pointed sentence
expressing a wise or clever observation or
a general truth.

1. The nicest thing about the future is that
it always starts tomorrow.

2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness
will make him wag his tail.

3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you
probably don't have any sense at all.

4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.

5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when
you're in deep water.

6. How come it takes so little time for a child
who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager
who wants to stay out all night?

7. Business conventions are important because
they demonstrate how many people a company
can operate without.

8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel
younger than everyone else looks?

9. Scratch a cat and you will have a permanent
job.

10. No one has more driving ambition than the
boy who wants to buy a car.

11. There are no new sins; the old ones just
get more publicity .

12. There are worse things than getting a call
for a wrong number at 4 AM. It could be a right
number.

13. No one ever says 'It's only a game.' when
their team is winning.

14. I've reached the age where the happy hour
is a nap.

15. Be careful reading the fine print. There's
no way you're going to like it.

16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not
everybody has the same size bucket.

17. Do you realize that in about 40 years,
we'll have thousands of old ladies running
around with tattoos?
(And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)

18. Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow
it's more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than
in a Yugo.

19. After 50, if you don't wake up aching in
every joint, you are probably dead!!

20. Always be yourself because the people
that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind,
don't matter "Others will follow your footsteps
easier than they will follow your advice

Customer Service

I'm not saying that the customer service in my bank is bad, but when I went in the other day and asked the clerk to check my balance she leaned over and pushed me.

I love Rauf's remark.. Another Aphroism I'm fond of is:

"Summer is the time when the kids SLAM the doors they left open all Winter."

Those are good. I like Rauf's comment too.

The rainforest carvings are quite interesting.

Ph Judy, these are GREAT! And so true, too! I love them all!

Those Scuptures are simply stunning, in everty way. It is just amazing how that incredibly talented Sculptor was able to illicit so much emotion in each of these scultures! FANTASTIC! Thank you so much for both of these wonderful things!

LOL... funny and true.

I think this is tattooed on my forehead Judy.

Jamie Dawn said...

Those are to the point and wise.

These are wonderful. I particularly love #17 as I've tried to imagine those elaborate tattoos I see on young ladies wrapped round the nape of the neck or the small of the back moved 1-2 inches closer to ground in the decades to come. Also, #12 rings true after surviving my son's freshman year in college when several nights those calls were for me (thankfully nothing that wasn't fixable!).
