God didn't promise us it would be easy or painless; He just promised us it would be worth it!

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


Appearing on Dennis Miller's show, Red Buttons announced he was 80 years old, but that 80 is not old. He explained:

Old is when your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you're barefoot.

Old is when your doctor doesn't give you x-rays anymore, but just holds you up to the light.

Old is when you remember when the Dead Sea was only sick.

Are you old enough to remember when typing class was noisy and when toothpaste came in metal tubes? If so, you're as old as I am. Congratulations on making it this far.

And he adds, "Sure I've gotten old. I've had 2 bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. I have bouts with dementia, poor circulation, hardly feel my hands and feet anymore, can't remember if I'm 85 or 92 but....thank God, I still have my Florida driver's license.

First, you believe in Santa Claus. Then you don't believe in Santa Claus. And before you know it, you are Santa Claus.
