Gentle Thoughts for Today



Birds of a feather flock together . . . .and then crap on your car.

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.


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.


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.


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


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


Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth . . .. . . . . .
AMEN!

All great! I especially like "The older we get, the fewer things seem worth standing in line for." That couldn't be more true!

Oh do I like what you had to say here today!

Darlene said...

My body and my fat are bosom buddies. And I am old enough to brag about it. ;-)

Truth, truth and nothing but the truth.
Thank goodness wrinkles don't hurt or I'd need morphine.

Tabor said...

Funny stuff!

I just took your European vacation tour through the pictures. I'm just exhausted looking at them--they're fabulous but how on earth did you do all that in one trip? How long were you gone? I just returned from the south of France and Barcelona and I'm about done in.

dagnabit! You're goldang funny.

I loved these... and I resemble some of these remarks... oh, dear. Went to the botanical garden to see the butterflies... it was pretty nice... just a bit too hot.

The construction is going well.. I hope it doesn't go too fast as I am trying to coordinate several things like building of the deck and delivery of hot tub that was ordered and getting my cousins here on time, not too early, not too late.

Granny Annie said...

Yes, my body and my fat have become very good friends. LOL

kenju said...

Klaatu, I can't take the credit. I got this in email.Thanks for the visit.

JeanMac said...

I like the golf quote.

Gilly said...

Love them, just love them!

[and I did know you had gardenias - I had written it down in case I got it wrong! A very senior moment, I think! Sorry!]

Grannymar said...

Well I agree that being older is comfortable..... so long as there is no pain.

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

How about this? At one point in my life I wasn't lying about my age,I was lying about my kid's age.

I had a son who was 40 and I told everyone he was 39.

Now, I'm 80 and HE tells everyone I'm only 79.

That's life....

Nancy said...

Sorry about the Anonymous, Judy. I didn't mean to do that. It's only me...

Carolyn said...

I ID with some of these a lot, and if 200 cars are parked in the mall lot, the fowl always seem to hit my windshield ;)

utenzi said...

Old = comfortable, huh? Not that I've noticed, Judy. Everything hurts in the morning. *sigh*

rosemary said...

all really good....the "old" ones are a little too close to home in some instances.

Shephard said...

... great quotes, as usual... resisting the tempting moment, constantly working on that one!

oklhdan said...

Loved it! All sooooo true!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I like these Judy....In fact, I like these better than the list above....lol!

PI said...

I can honestly say I have never lied about my age - sometimes to the despair of my family.
Once a reporter who was surprised I was older than he had thought inadvertently added ten years on and it appeared in the local paper.
In the end I decided to ignore it.

They were all good but especially the one about "the easiest way to find something is to replace it."

I lost my favorite peeler - have to go out and buy another one - bet the old one will show up!!

I guess you can't have to many peelers!!
