Today I feel like the wind, going fast, in every direction and don't know where Iíve been or where Iím going. Did you ever have days like that? Sometimes I complain about all the things I have to do, and yet most things make me feel good to think Iím able to do them. I hate to hear people say they donít know what to do and the best medicine for that is to have a hobby. I love to cut out quilt blocks and sew, put my puzzles together (100 piece ones). I now have 89 puzzles on hand, ready when I want to, and if I get sleepy, Iíve got the most comfortable bed in the world and a little nap doesnít hurt anyone. One of the best things to do (and is so rewarding) is to read the Bible, the greatest book ever written. Donít forget to visit the shut-ins and the nursing home. Thank God for being busy; wind or no wind, IĎve got a lot to do today.

Little Johnny was in one of his very bad and disobedient moods. In answer to his motherís plea to behave himself he said, ďGive me a nickel and Iíll be goodĒ. ďGive you a nickel!Ē she scolded. ďWhy, Johnny, you shouldnít be good for a nickel, you should be good for nothing, like your father.Ē

The only thing most of us ever get on a silver platter - is tarnish.

Remember when there were horseless carriages and divorceless marriages.

Donít just put in a day -
Put something into your day.

What a good world this would be if we could forget our troubles as easily as we forget our blessings.

You Canít Win
While shoveling snow I murmured
ďIn time this, too will pass.Ē
But after spring has had her fling,
Itís time to mow the grass

The Anatomy of a Farmer

Ever wonder how a medical textbook would describe a farmer? Here are a few ideas from readers:
Top of head - always wears hat to ease pain when beating head against wall.
Inside of head - works like a computer when figuring profits and losses.
Shoulders - both broad. Left shoulder slightly lower than right shoulder for looking back at past mistakes.
Hands - right hand highly developed from daily chores, left hand slightly underdeveloped from crossing fingers.
Knees - callused from praying for rain - re-callused from praying for rain to st .....

Here is a job we donít have to do anymore, but it was fun sometimes. I remember one time my sister and I had orders to fill the straw tick off one of the beds upstairs, so we got it to the straw pile, got .....

Was feeling sorry for myself the other day, as my legs ached, so I sat down and put them up on a stool and sat there awhile. As I was thinking to myself how much our mothers and dads used their poor old leg .....
