Suppose everyone is freezing in this cold weather. It is hard to take after the warm fall and nice days in December. I have always loved the farm, but I’m really glad I don’t have to go out and milk cows or clean barns in the cold weather. Those were the days when it was so cold and trying to clean the barns, feed the cows and hurry up so the cows wouldn’t stand outside too long. Those were the days and glad of the memories I have out on the farm.
. . . . .
Chuckle
A farmer and his wife were having a friendly argument about whether a town in Pennsylvania was pronounced Lan-Caster or Lanc-aster. The farmer decided to drive there and find out how the natives pronounced it. He stopped at the first business place in town, took his wife by the hand and walked in. He said to the clerk, “now tell my wife the name of this place, and speak very slowly and distinctly.” The clerk look at them for a moment, then enunciated slowly and very carefully, “Bur-ger King!”
. . . . .
Ole was getting weight conscious. He remarked, “I used to pinch an inch, now I have to grab a slab!”
. . . . .

A rumor goes in one ear and out many mouths.
. . . . .
Many people have a good aim in life, but never pull the trigger.
. . . . .
The optimist sees the doughnut, the pessimist see the hole, but the realist see the calories.
. . . . .
By the time you save enough money to burn, the fire has gone out.
. . . . .
If asked to sit down
Front in church,
The average man will fuss;
And yet he’ll knock you
Down to get,
The front seat on the bus.
. . . . .
Get rid of mice-Believe it or not

The person who said to use pop to kill the mice must have been joking. Pop loses its “burp” after a short time. Now you will find beer works better. Pour into dish and set up high in a shelf where you think the mice come in. Mice will drink the beer until drunk and fall off the shelf and kill themselves.

Hints
• Baking soda mixed with cinnamon or ground cloves makes a great carpet freshener.
• You can strain fat out of meat broth by pouring it through a paper coffee filter. Works every time.

The year just past,
Is like a door.
Shut tight and locked
“Forevermore.”
Gone is the year,
Of two-thousand one
No Longer yours,
No longer mine
Some days were good,
Some d .....

May the joy of your
Happiest Christmas
Be doubled this year and then
When you recall the memory
May it all be doubled again.

May we all have a meaningful Christmas, and I kn .....
