~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

When everything seems to be going against you, remember the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it. - Henry Ford

A new convert to Christ had a great burden for her husband. "May I suggest to you how you may win him?" I asked. Of course she was eager to know. "Return home and just love your husband. Be a sweetheart to him. If there is a certain kind of roast he likes better than any other kind, be sure he has it often. If he is especially fond of a certain kind of pie, bake it for him. If there are certain things about the keeping of the home that he especially appreciates, be sure these are not neglected. Do everything possible to please him, without compromising your allegiance to God. In other words, just do everything you can to demonstrate real love for him."

About ten days later a man came to see me. He said, "Mr. Coon, I've got the most wonderful wife in all the world since she joined your church! Tell me more about it."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

That is Life

My memory's not as sharp as it used to be. Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

Know how to prevent sagging? Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.

I'm getting into swing dancing. Not on purpose. Some parts of my body are just prone to swinging.

It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffeemaker

These days about half the stuff in my shopping cart says, "For fast relief."

Don't think of it as getting hot flashes. Think of it as your inner child playing with matches.

Don't let aging get you down. It's too hard to get back up.!

Remember: You don't stop laughing because you grow old, You grow old because you stop laughing.

"I get those maternal feelings sometimes, like when I'm lying on the couch and can't reach the remote, I think, 'Boy, a kid would be nice right now.'" - Kathleen Madigan

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

My son's intention was to propose to Alexandra somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. The first likely place he chose didn't, on closer inspection, look too inviting. He drove on and came across a picnic area with a small waterfall. He stopped to propose in the old-fashioned way, and was accepted.

They later learned that the site he had chosen was at the foot of Fidelity Mountain.
