  • Things to think about.

    1. The nicest thing about the future is . . . that it always starts tomorrow.{doncha love procrastination?}

    2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

    3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all. {*wild cheering with agreement!*}

    4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.

    5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.{shouldn't that be 'keep your mouth shut BEFORE you get in deep water'?}

    6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?

    7. Business conventions are important . . . because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.

    8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?

    9. Pet a cat . . . and you will have a permanent job.

    10. No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy who wants to buy a car.

    11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.

    12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 a.m. - like, it could be the right number.

    13. No one ever says "It's only a game" when their team is winning.

    14. I've reached the age where 'happy hour' is a nap. {I resemble that remark.}

    15. Be careful about reading the fine print. . . . There's no way you're going to like it.

    16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.

    17. Do you realize that, in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos? (And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)

    18. Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Cadillac than in a Yugo.

    19. After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you're probably dead.
    {Personally, I think that should read "after 45"}

    20. Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind . . . . and the ones that mind don't matter. {[email protected] skippy!!!}

    21. Life isn't tied with a bow . . . . . . . but it's still a gift.
    {what's that saying about looking a gift horse in the mouth?}

    Does anyone remember the good old days?

    Did anyone press their chewing gum into a comic book and lift a reverse picture onto the gum?

    You could stretch it and skew it of course. Seemed fun at the time.

    Fast forward about 50 years, then imaging just a few more years ahead.

    Think about what a 50-60 year old tatoo looks like on very loose skin...

        I think it will depend on the location. I have seen alot of WW2/Korea/Vietnam vets with a tat on the arms. They do look honorable. My dad had one.

        I was thinking about several other locations that I have regrettably seen.

              Do you own stock in a paper-towel company? I just used a roll cleaning coffee off my monitor.

                Just wait.It'll be:"Gramma,Gramma.Tell us again how you got that bunny rabbit tattoo during Spring Break and how Great Grandpa got mad.Gramma,why does your bunny rabbit look like a kangaroo now?"

                And,in 50 or 60 years,the kids driving around thumping out noise that rattles windows for blocks around will be the ones tottering around the old folks' home in wheelchairs and on walkers or whatever mobility aids they'll be using then shouting "What the Hell is THAT yer listenin' to?What?WHAT? No,boy,you need to listen to Three Sixx Mafia.Now THAT'S music!" and shuffling off singing offkey "It hard out here for a pimp!"

                Don't trust anyone over 30,indeed.What the Hell were we thinking?

                      If you eat right, exercise, don't drink and don't smoke, you're gonna look pretty damn foolish when you're old, lying in bed and dying of nothing...

                        If I can pick how I go,I plan on dying at home in bed with two 20 year old women,from gunshots fired by their insanely jealous husbands.

                          When I was yer age,we had to ride the school bus.FOUR miles!Both ways!And we had to walk half a block to catch it and wait for it in the falling leaves because Tony Jones' sister started growing up when we were in the 7th grade and her mom didn't want a bunch of boys in the house looking at her.
                          We didn't have 230 cable channels,we had 3 channels.And if the President came on tv that night,your evening was shot.We'd walk around the house crying "The President's on!He's on every channel!We're gonna miss "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" and "Battlestar Galactica!" and you know what your Grandpa would say?"Come here boy,you wanna cry?I'll give you something to cry about!"
                          We didn't have vcrs and answering machines for our cell phones.If you wanted to watch a show,you had to be home to watch it.
                          We didn't even have cell phones.We had a phone with a cord that lead to the wall to talk on.And we used rotary dials to make our calls.
                          And we didn't have all these foods you have today.Hot Pockets?What the Hell is that?
                          All we had to eat in the 70s was "Hamburger Helper".That's all there was.And we were thankful to get it.
                          Ahh,you kids don't know how easy you got it these days.

                            And..........

                            Doug........ Good ones. "Hot Pockets" reminds me of "Willy" in the 8th Grade. Willy was having a quick Smoke in the Boy's room when a Teacher came in. Without Thinking (Something most 8th graders were good at) he stuck the Cigarette in his Pocket. STILL LIT. Sure looked odd going down the hall toward the office with Smoking Levi's...........
