    A few interesting Tid-Bits

    Gentle Thoughts for Today

    Birds of a feather flock together and then crap on your car.

    A penny saved is a government oversight.

    The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

    The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

    The easiest way to find some thing lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

    He who hesitates is probably right.

    Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.

    If you think there is good in everybody, you
    haven't met everybody.




    If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

    The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.

    There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

    Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs'

    Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

    The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

    Some people try to turn back their odometers.. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

    Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth .. . . .. . . . . .AMEN!

    A Few More...

    The shortest distance between two points, is usually under construction.

    If everyone pulled in one direction, the world would keel over.

    Paper is always strongest at the perforations.

    Praise makes good men better and bad men worse.

    There is a fine line between fishing, and standing on the bank like an idiot.

    A journey of a Thousand Miles starts with....

    ...a broken fan belt & a leaky radiator.

    Never forget Murphy's Laws of Combat:

    If the enemy is in range, so are you.
    Your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
    If your advance is going very very well - you're walking into an ambush.
    Logistics are very VERY important - Ammo & Dinner do NOT miraculously come down from heaven any time a junior officer prays into a radio for them.

    Unless he's from the south, then it's to distinguish him from his cousins who are all named after the same great uncle Billy.
    i.e.,
    Billy Bob, Billy Roy, Billy Ray, Billy whomever....etc.........

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    I never got called "Bubba", but I was probably 6 or 7 before I realized I had two names... and to this day my younger sister stills uses both of my names in any regular conversation... legally my name is Charles Ray... my dad intended it to be Charley Ray after his favorite uncle...but the doctor filled the birth certificate as Charles..... my younger sister pronounces it Charleray...

    my older sister's name is Shirley Ann... that get pronounced Shirleann by my younger sister.
