Do you have days when you wonder what and why you get up in the morning? Well Iíll tell you why I wonder.
The Joys of Aging

I have become quite a frivolous old gal. Iím seeing five gentlemen every day. As soon as I awake Will Power helps me out of bed. When he leaves I go see John. Then Charley Horse comes along and when he is here, he takes a lot of my attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of the day. He doesnít like to stay in one place very long so he takes me from joint to joint. After such a busy day, Iím really tired and ready to go to bed with Ben Gay. What a day!

ďDear me,Ē said the lady to the superintendent of a mental institution. ďWhat a vicious look that woman has we just passed in the corridor. Is she dangerous?Ē ďYes, at times,Ē replied the superintendent evasively.

ďBut why do you allow her such freedom?Ē

ďCanít help it.Ē

But isnít she an inmate and under your control?

ďNo, sheís neither under my control, nor an inmate. Sheís my wife!Ē
. . . . .
When Oleís mother-in-law died, he and Lena were discussing what kind of tombstone to get for her. Said Ole ďWell we should get vun dat is good and heavy.Ē
. . . . .
Just because everything is different, doesnít mean anything has changed.
. . . . .

If youíre yearning for the good old days, just turn off the air-conditioning.

Remember the teakettle - though itís up to itsí neck in hot water, it continues to sing.
. . . . .
The right temperature at home is maintained by warm hearts, not hot heads.

Techno-Challenged

In a world thatís techno-hyped,
Iím lost beyond belief,
Explore the info highway?
I canít find the clover leaf.
Of course, Iím aimed
for cyberspace,
but donít think Iíll get far-
at least not till I figure how
to work my VCR!

Itís often said that a family that plays together and prays together will stay together. That may be an over simplification, but is has a lot of truth to it. Planting the right kind of a garden is one of th .....

Was out to my son's house the other day and when I came home the wagon train that was headed for Camp Winnebago was parked in the shade in the road-side park. They had come from Granger and were resting thei .....

to tell the nations of the world we still have freedom here.
We know our efforts sometime fail
but when compared to all the rest
we are proud to s .....

Yes, we have had lots of rain, but being dried out must be awful. I heard one lady say, ďall I get done is paying the guy who mows my lawn, which he has been mowing twice a week.Ē I wonder what she would sa .....

I hear people say they just have to get away from it all and take a much needed vacation - and I say to get away from what? Farming is so different then when I was a kid. They donít plow corn, itís sprayed .....
