New Year

This is the last day of the year
they call it new years eve
look back at all the memories
this year you’re going to leave

Some you will cherish always
and keep for all it’s worth
because someone close to you
has been gifted with a birth

Some others you wish to forget
but know you never will
for someone close passed over
and some were never ill

Some will be very pleasant
and close to your heart
sit down and list the good things
back to January make a start

So when you feel unhappy
in the new upcoming year
sit down and read your memories
and smile from ear to ear

Happy Birthday to me......

Okay so Lynne really isn't posting this. This post is from her daughter. Because I thought it would be an even better surprise to post it on her blog and not mine. Today is my mom's birthday and according to her she is 15 today. Which makes me really young so that is okay with me. Seriously though I wanted to wish her a very Happy Birthday.
My mom is an amazing person and I draw inspiration from her strength and ability to endure and adapt. It's been a long year and things have not alway went the way we though they should, but she has stood strong and overcame every obstacle that has been thrown at her.

Happy Birthday Mom! I hope you have a wonderful day!

When I,m An Old Lady

When I'm an old lady, I'll live with my kids, And make their life happy and filled with such fun, I want to pay back all the joy they provided, Returning each deed. Oh, they so excited .....When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
I'll write on the wall with red, white, and blue; And bounce on the furniture wearing my shoes. I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out. I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, will they shout! .....When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
When their on the phone and just out of reach, I'll get into things like sugar and bleach. Oh, they snap their fingers and then shake their heads, And when their done I'll hide under the bed. .....When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
When they cooks dinner and calls me to meals, I'll not eat my green beans or salads congealed. I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table, And when they gets angry, I'll as run fast as I'm able. ..... When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
I'll sit close to the TV, thru the channels I'll click, I'll cross both my eyes to see if they stick, I'll take off my socks and throw one away, And play in the mud until the end of the day. .....When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.
And later, in bed, I'll lay back and sigh, And thank God in prayer and then close my eyes; And they will look down with a smile slowly creeping, And say with a groan, "she's so sweet when she's sleeping," .....When I'm an old lady and live with kids.

Julie Andrews new song

Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,Bundles of magazines tied up in string,These are a few of my favorite things.Cadillacs and cataracts and hearing aids and glasses,Polident and Fixo! dent and false teeth in glasses,Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,These are a few of my favorite things.When the pipes leak,When the bones creak,When the knees go bad,I simply remember my favorite things,And then I don't feel so bad.Hot tea and crumpets, and corn pads for bunions,No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,Bathrobes and heat pads and hot meals they bring,These are a few of my favorite things.Back pains, confused brains, and no fear of sinnin,Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinin,And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,When we remember our favorite things.When the joints ache, when the hips break,When the eyes grow dim,Then I remember the great life I've had,And then I don't feel so bad.

There is a Old lady liveing in my house

An old lady has moved into my house. She usually keeps out of sight but when I pass a mirror, there she is obliterating my gorgeous face and body.
I think she is stealing money from me, I go to the ATM and withdraw $100.00 and a few days later it is gone. I don't spend money that fast.
My food is disappearing at an alarming rate, especially the good stuff like cookies, ice cream and candy. and then she's been tampering with my scale to make me think I've put on weight.
She is quite childish, likes to play games like going into my closets when I'm not home altering my clothes so that they don't fit, she messes with my files and papers so I can't find anything, also fiddles with my VCR so it doesn't record what I have programmed.
She gets to the newspaper and mail before I can and blurs the print so I can't read anything, then did something to my TV and telephone volume so all I can hear is mumbles and whispers.
She has done other things, like made my stairs steeper, my vacuum heavier, my knobs and faucets harder to turn.
She has made my bed higher, glues my lids on jars so it's impossible for me to open them.
She has taken the fun out of shopping for clothes.
She stands in front of me in the mirror and monopolizes it, looking ridiculous in some of those outfits that look so great on me.
Just when I thought she couldn't get any meaner, she came along with me to get my picture taken for my driver's licence and jumped in front of me before the camera clicked.
No one is going to believe that the picture of that old lady is me.

Things it took me 50 years to learn

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."
3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.
5. And when God, who created the entire universe with all of its glories, decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.
6. You should not confuse your career with your life.
7. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.
8. When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is crazy.
9. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
10. Never lick a steak knife.
11. Take out the fortune before you eat the cookie.
12. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.
13. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.
14. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.
15. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.
16. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.
17. The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.
18. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)
19. Your friends love you anyway.

Back in time

I want to go back to the time when.....................Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-mo."Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!""Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "Monopoly."Catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening.It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.Being old, referred to anyone over 20.The net on a tennis court was the perfect height to play volleyball and rules didn't matter.The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.It was magic when dad would "remove" his thumb.It was unbelievable that dodgeball wasn't an Olympic event.Having a weapon in school, meant being caught with a slingshot.Nobody was prettier than Mom.Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better.It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people" rides at the amusement park.Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true.Abilities were discovered because of a "double-dog-dare."Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute ads for action figures.No shopping trip was complete, unless a new toy was brought home."Oly-oly-oxen-free" made perfect sense.Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team.War was a card game.Water balloons were the ultimate weapon.Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle.Taking drugs meant orange-flavored chewable aspirin.Ice cream was considered a basic food group (and STILL is as far as I am concerned!!)Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but also the fiercest protectors.If you can remember most or all of these, then you have LIVED!!!!I DOUBLE DOG DARE YA!!!!!!!!!!!!

How To Stay Young,Happy & Health

Throw out non-essential numbers.
This includes age, weight and height.
Let the doctor worry about them.
That is why you pay him/her.

Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.
If you really need a grouch,
there are probably a few dozen of your relatives
to do the job.

Keep learning.
Learn more about
the computer, crafts, gardening ...whatever.
Just never let the brain idle.

Enjoy the simple things.
When the children are young...
that is all that you can afford.
When they are in college...
that is all that you can afford.
When they are grown and you are on retirement...
that is all that you can afford!

Laugh often, long and loud.
Laugh until you gasp for breath.
Laugh so much that you can be tracked in the store by your distinctive

The tears happen.
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us our entire life is
... ourselves.

Surround yourself with what you love,
whether it is family, pets, keepsakes,
music, plants, hobbies ... whatever.
Your home is your refuge.

Cherish your health.
If it is good ... preserve it.
If it is unstable ... improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve ... get help.

Don't take guilt trips.
Go to the mall, the next county, a foreign country... but not guilt.

Tell the people you love,
that you love them ...
at every opportunity.

Words to live by!
Remember ...
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.

Chocolate Bunny

Chocolate Easter bunny
In a jelly bean nest,
I'm saving you for very last
Because I love you best.
I'll only take a nibble
From the tip of your ear
And one bite from the other side
So that you won't look queer.
Yum, your'e so delicious!
I didn't mean to eat
Your chocolate tail till Tuesday.
Ooops! There go your feet!
I wonder how your back tastes
With all that chocolate hair.
I never thought your tummy
Was only filled with air!
Chocolate Easter bunny
In a jelly bean nest,
I'm saving you for very last
Because I love you best.
