One of these Days

One of these days, I'll be freeto do everything that pleases ME!I'll eat popcorn with a spoonOr, lie down to rest at half-past noon.I'll call my children on the phoneand ask "them" for a personal loan!I'll start my car with no place to goand instead of fast, I'll drive very slow.I'll keep my life simple and learn not to fretAnd toss out old papers I used to collect.I'll smile at myself when I look in the glassand say, "Hey, sweetie, you've really got class!"I'll wear my best clothes, that I've been savingand eat all the candy I've so long been craving.I'll bake some fresh cookies instead of a dinnerand I won't give a darn if I don't get thinner!I won't care if I'm, fit, fancy or fatThere won't be time to worry about that.And soon all my friends will easily seeThe brand new person who has always been ME!But don't be surprised if it takes me some time,I can't do it yet, I'm still in my prime.Watch it kids, here I come with my Cavalier!

. . . . .The world's most destructive acid seems to come from a sour disposition.

. . . . . Two can still live as cheaply as one, if both have jobs.

. . . . .Today the easiest way to live within your means - is once in a while.

. . . . . ChuckleWalking down the street, a man saw a friend who was wearing only one glove."Excuse me, " he said, "Why are you wearing only one glove?" "I was listening to the weather report," explained the friend, "and the announcer said, "It's going to be warm today - but on the other hand it may get awfully cold."

. . . . . Ole says: It's awful to grow old by yourself, Lena hasn't had a birthday in seven years.

. . . . .Did you know?-In Hollywood in 1903 the biggest problem was what to do about farmers driving their sheep through the town square.-It is estimated millions of trees are planted accidentally by squirrels that bury nuts and then forget where they hid them.

. . . . . HintTen miniature marshmallows are needed to make one large marshmallow. One cup of small marshmallows equals 10 large ones. The small marshmallows have more of the dusting powder or filler on them than the large ones. It can make a melted combination differ a little when the small ones are used.. . . . .--Until next week, Annabelle
