What a wonderful birthday I had and a big “Thank you” to my kids for getting it up. I guess you never know how many friends you have till a big day like Sunday comes up. I want to “thank you” each and everyone who came, and for all the cards, gifts and money that I received. The afternoon turned out sunny in spite of the little rain we had at noon. I wish I could thank each one of you with a hug like you gave me, but will just say “THANK YOU” for coming and especially to my five kids, Diane, Vickie, Karen, Allan and Marty for all the time and work getting everything ready, and for all the food, it was great, and you know what - I don’t feel a day older, just a little tired from all the hugs, kisses and hand shaking on my special day. God Bless you all for coming.

A man and his wife noticed the couple next door kissing passionately on the porch. “Why can’t you do that?” the wife asked. “Don’t be silly,” her husband replied. “ I hardly know the woman.”

Ole and Lena were expecting their first baby. As the time approached, Lena announced, “I tink its time for da baby - but vid da traffic dis time of day, I’m not sure ve vill get to da hospital in time.” Ole thought a minute and then said, “Vell, maybe ve better take two cars, dat vay, vun of us is sure to make it.”

If you say what you think, don’t expect to hear only what you like.

When you’re over the hill - you pick up speed.

Do not face the day until you have faced God.

Even a family tree has to have some sap.

If everybody followed you
completely to the letter,
Tell me, if they followed you,
would the world be any better?
