Was in the store the other day and heard some lady say, “We are using paper plates this year for our Christmas dinner, saves on dishwashing. Hasn’t things changed. I remember when I was a kid, Christmas dinner was so special and mother brought out the big white linen tablecloth and of course the best dishes we had. I always think, now days we have so much time - we don’t have to pluck and dress a goose, make our own bread, make our own pies and cookies, make our own dressing from scratch and when our Christmas is over - no dish washer, we just heated the water, get out the dishpans and hop to it. Paper plates or good china - just have a Merry Christmas and enjoy your families, especially this year. God Bless each and everyone. Merry Christmas.

A young doctor complained to an older colleague, “Everytime I attend my service club meeting, somebody gets me in the corner and starts pumping for free medical advice. It’s embarrassing, and I don’t know how to stop it.” “No problem,” the old timer said. “I figured that out years ago. When somebody does that to me, I stop them with one word, undress.”

Ole had his will made out in a very simple way: “Being of sound mind, I spent all my money.”

The older a man gets, the farther he had to walk to school as a boy.

You’ve been around a long time if you can remember when a pie was set on the window sill to cool - not to thaw.

Don’t fret over what you’d do with your time if you could live it over again - get busy with what is left.

Most people couldn’t start a conservation if the weather didn’t change once in a while.

Snowflakes are pretty
As you can see,
They always seem to fall on me.
I like them just the way they are,
Some look like a falling Star.

Hints for wrapping form 1970
1. Wrap a loaf of bread or any kind of nut bread in plastic, seal it with a small wheat - weaving ornament on top.
2. Put candy in a glass jar, cover the lid with cloth or doilies.
3. Wrap a cookbook in fabric and tie with yarn and a wooden spoon.
4. Wrap children gifts in newspaper comics and add balloons instead of bows.
5. For women who enjoy sewing, wrap a gift in fabric and tie with a yellow tape measure, a red pincushion or thimble.

Did you read Charlie Warners article in the paper last week and how true it is. Why do we parents let our children drink so much pop and eat so much deep-fried, greasy food and then wonder about their te .....

Was lazy the other day so I started reading the book “Butter in the Well,” and what those people went through just to stay alive was amazing. It is a diary from 1869 and those people came from Sweden ove .....
