For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Now for some fun!


Patches the Horse @ Yahoo! Video


A wordless joke - I thought it was cute:


We need to stop chewing gum!

GAMES FOR WHEN WE ARE OLDER

1. Sag, you're it.
2. Hide and go pee.
3. 20 questions shouted into your good ear.
4. Kick the bucket.
5. Red Rover, Red Rover, the nurse says, "Bend Over".
6. Musical recliners.
7. Simon says something incoherent.
8. Pin the Toupee on the bald guy.

SIGNS OF MENOPAUSE

1. You sell your home heating system at a yard sale.
2. You have to write post-it-notes with your kids' names on them.
3. You change your underware after a sneeze.

OLD IS WHEN:

1. Going bra-less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.
2. You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you
don't have to go along.
3. Getting a little action means I don't need fiber today.
4. Getting lucky means you find your car in the parking lot.
5. An all-nighter means not getting up to go pee!

THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEKEND

Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could
simply press "Crtl, Alt, Delete" and start all over?

If raising children was going to be easy, it never would have
started with something called labor!!!

Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live
forever!!!!!!!!

Ponderisms

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most
people die of natural causes.

Garden Rule: When weedin g, the best way to make sure you are
removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes
out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a
replacement.

Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days no one
talks about seeing UFO's like they used to?

In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird...Now the
world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

How is it one calrless match can start a forest fire, bu it takes a
whole box to start a campfire?

Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll
squeeze these dangly things here and drink whatever comes out?"

Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken there? I'm gonna
eat the next thing that comes outta it's butt."

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about
him?

Why does your OB-GYN leave the room when you get undressed if he or
she is going to look up there anyway?

Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

But most of all, Remember!!!

A good friend is like a good bra. Hard to find, Supportive,
Comfortable, and Always close to your heart!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you ever wonder why you look at my blog?

How fitting for Fun Friday - Jackie Gleason - Happy Birthday Wikipedia

Gleason did two Jackie Gleason Show specials for CBS after giving up his regular show in the 1970s, including "Honeymooners segments" and a Reginald Van Gleason III sketch in which the gregarious millionaire was shown as a clinical alcoholic. When the CBS deal expired, Gleason signed with NBC, but ideas reportedly came and went before he ended up doing a series of Honeymooners specials for ABC. Gleason helmed four of these ABC specials during the mid-1970s. Gleason and Carney also made a television movie, Izzy and Moe, which aired on CBS in 1985.

In April 1974, Gleason revived several classic characters, including Ralph Kramden, Joe the Bartender, and Reginald Van Gleason III, in a television special with Julie Andrews. In one song-and-dance route, the two performed "Take Me Along" from Gleason's Broadway musical.

In 1985, three decades after the Classic 39 began filming, Gleason revealed he had carefully preserved kinescopes of his live 1950s programs in a vault for future use—including Honeymooners sketches with Pert Kelton as Alice. These "Lost Episodes," as they came to be called, were initially previewed at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York City, then first aired on the Showtime cable network in 1985, and were later syndicated to local TV stations. They were also released on home video.

Some of these include earlier versions of exactly the same plotlines later copied for the Classic 39 episodes. One of them, a Christmas holiday episode that was duplicated several years later with Meadows as Alice, delivered every one of Gleason's best-known characters — Ralph Kramden, the Poor Soul, Rudy the Repairman, Reginald Van Gleason, Fenwick Babbitt, and Joe the Bartender — in and out of the Kramden apartment, the storyline hooking around a wild Christmas party being thrown up the block from the Kramdens' building by Reginald Van Gleason at Joe the Bartender's place.
