The year just past,
Is like a door.
Shut tight and locked
Gone is the year,
Of two-thousand one
No Longer yours,
No longer mine
Some days were good,
Some days were bad,
Some were joyful
And some were sad.
I made mistakes,
And so did you
What has been done,
We cant undo.
But we can pray and
God will hear.
Help us improve, in this
New Year!

Doesnt the years roll by and Im hoping you all had a Merry Christmas and now its time to say Happy New Year may God Bless us all and also our nation, and keep flying our flag and praying for our country.

Old Hank Smith became so ill his wife Lizzie, sent for the doctor, when old Hank heard the doc enter the house, he closed his eyes and didnt move. Doc looked him over and said in a loud voice, Why, this mans dead! Just then old Hanks eyes flew open and he yelled at the doctor, I haint dead! Now, Hank, you just hush up, Lizzie scolded, Doc knows a lot more about that than you do.

Did you know that while a little common sense would prevent most divorces - it would also prevent most marriages.

Most all gifts are free, some have hidden price tags.

Old age is not a time to coast - but to climb
. . . . .
One reason you cant take it with you is that is goes before you do.

When I was eight,
I collected marbles.
And I knew how to use them.
It was not until I was 80
That I began to lose them.
. . . . .
I cant believe it
It was so cold where my friend lived and he had some tame rabbits, and he had to use jumper cables to get them started in the morning.
It was so cold at our house, that it froze a pot of coffee I was boiling on the stove.
It was so cold in December the kids had to go outside, bring the television radio waves in the house and thaw them out so we could turn on our set.
Our electricity was off so I lit an oil-lamp and the flame froze and I wasnt able to blow it out till the January thaw.
We have a combination furnace - oil and wood, and the smoke froze so we pushed the smoke up the chimney, cut it off in blocks and used it to smoke our hams.
I heard that out west they havent had rain for so long that some churches for baptisms are just sprinkling the water, some are using a damp cloth and some are issuing rain checks.
Thank goodness the cold spell didnt last all winter! I feel sorry for the people who live where it is so dry. I read that out west it was so dry the creeks would only run 3 days a week.
