For 2018

"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

Fun Friday - Good Friday

"If you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn?"

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured,educated and happy.

Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think,
Good grief, look how smart I am!

Beware of Identity Theft:

A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Enzo, has cheated him out of 10 million bucks

His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place.

It was assumed that Enzo would hear nothing that he might have to testify about in court.

When the Godfather goes to confront Enzo about his missing $10 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language.

The Godfather tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the 10 million bucks is that he embezzled from me."

The lawyer, using sign language, asks Enzo where the money is..

Enzo signs back, "I don't know what you are talking about."

The lawyer tells the Godfather, "He says he doesn't know what you are talking about."

The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Enzo's temple and says, "Ask him again!"

The lawyer signs to Enzo, "He'll kill you if you don't tell him."

Enzo signs back, "OK. You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Bruno's backyard in Woodbridge!"

The Godfather asks the lawyer, "What did he say?"

The lawyer replies, " He says you don't have the nerve to pull the trigger.."

A blonde was weed-eating her yard and accidentally cut off the tail of her cat which was hiding in the grass.

She rushed her cat, along with the tail, over to WAL-MART!



WALMART is the largest re-tailer in the world!

Happy Birthday to Buddy Epsen - Wikipedia

When he turned down Louis B. Mayer's offer of an exclusive contract with MGM, he was warned by Mayer that he would never get a job in Hollywood again. However, he was cast in the role of the Scarecrow in the 1939 The Wizard of Oz. He then swapped roles with Ray Bolger, who was to play the Tin Man. Ebsen recorded all his songs, went through all the rehearsals, and started filming. Shortly thereafter, he began experiencing cramps and shortness of breath, eventually leading to hospitalization. The cause was determined to be an allergy to the aluminum dust used for his makeup; he left the film as a result.

In an interview included on the 2005 DVD release of the movie, Ebsen recalled that the studio heads did not believe he was sick until someone tried to order Ebsen back to the set and was intercepted by an angry nurse. Ebsen was replaced by Jack Haley, with the makeup quietly changed to a paste. As noted in a documentary on the 2005 DVD, MGM did not publicize the reason for Ebsen's departure; even Haley was not told until later. Although Haley re-recorded most of Ebsen's vocals, Ebsen's midwestern voice, with the enunciated "r" in the word "wizard", can still be heard on the soundtrack during a couple of the reprises of "We're Off to See the Wizard". Footage of Ebsen as the Tin Man was included as an extra with the U.S. 50th anniversary video release of the film. Until his dying day, Ebsen complained of lung issues from his involvement in "that damned movie." Ironically, Ebsen outlived all of the major cast members of The Wizard of Oz.

On a serious note this Good Friday-

Good Friday is the mirror held up by turns us to that cross and to his eyes and we hear these words, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do."

I didn’t know any of that stuff on Buddy Ebsen. In today’s world, he would have made a fortune suing MGM. Kind of sad… both the idea of suing everyone, AND the fact of his lifelong problems from them. Hopefully they at least paid for his medical bills.

You had some really great things, as usual, in your post… especially the last one on Good Friday.
