Oldies But Goodies

Thoughts for 2010

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.

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 '

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 . . . .

I know I was naughty at times in my childhood, but I never recall my middle name being used. I never liked it and only write it on official forms when asked for my full name.

Several really good ones here!
Replacing something you thought was lost forever really hits home. I've done it a few times lately.

'When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth,
think of Algebra.'
And Chemistry.

All good ones and can relate too well. I am 70 but when asked my age I say 80 so people will think I look good for my age.

So much truth! LoL!

I am reading this at work during my lunch break and laughed out loud at the golf one. I had to read it out loud then! :)

I am fascinated with these quotes. There are a couple of personal ones that crack me up even when I think about them.

oklhdan said...

I loved these. I hadn't heard most of them. I never want to repeat Algebra!!!!!!!!

Ginnie said...

I loved the IRS and "theirs" one!

The replacing of something lost also goes for books. If you buy a book you want to read, you'll often find that it is already on your shelf from a time previously, when you also thought you might want to read this book so you bought it.

Thanks for making me smile!

wrinkles don't hurt. that's a good one to add to the glad game.

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