~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
SIGNS YOU'RE GETTING TOO OLD TO DRIVE
It takes more than four minutes to get out of your car.
When backing into a parking spot, you just back up until you hear something.
It scares you to drive the speed limit.
The only thing you pass on the road anymore is the Amish.
You use cruise control because your leg fell asleep.
You use cruise control at 25 mph.
You inquired if the dealership could install magnifying glass for the windshield.
Your turn signal has been on since 2003.
Your bumper sticker endorses Eisenhower.
When the police pull you over, they're surprised to find out you're sober.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Our manager at the restaurant where I worked was a friendly, jovial man. But there was one subject you didn't dare discuss in front of him--his height. Or, should I say, his lack of it.
One day he stormed through the door and announced angrily, "Someone just picked my pocket!"
Most of my fellow waitresses and I were speechless, except for one who blurted out, "How could anyone stoop so low?"

The low-down on congressional travel
In the past 4 and one-half years, members of the U.S. House and Senate have taken more than 4,800 trips. The total cost of these trips was more than $14 million.
So who’s footing the bill? Corporations and outside interest groups.
Congress is allowed to accept reasonable travel expenses for legitimate reasons. Unfortunately, this is often abused on Capitol Hill. And the ethical implications are staggering.
At this site, you can learn how much your representative and senators have accepted in travel expenses. And you can see how they compare to their colleagues. I found it very, very interesting.
