Things I've Learned Past Age 60 December 28, 2004 1:52 AM

Dear New Friends, I have taken a liking to jotting down things that I've found amusing or otherwise since I was 60...that was 24 years ago! I thought some of you might be interested in an 'ole Buzzard's 'musings'... 1. Never, ever suggest a Dishwasher as an Anniversary Present. My dear Edna gave me such a look on our 35th that she could've stopped a tractor! 2. The amount of hair you lose on top is directly porportional to the hair now growing in other areas- why my ears? 3. Your kids think "you need a Caretaker" but your grandkids think you do just fine. 4. If you sneeze more than 3 x/row, everyone in the vicinity becomes greatly concerned! They're Allergies, for goodness sakes! 5. You realize that eating ice cream for breakfast is NOT bad for you! 6. Laughter with Friends becomes more important especially as your "Circle" begins to dwindle in size. 7. Never pass up an opportunity to get involved w/ younger people. You never know who will become the next Madame Curie or Rodney Dangerfield. 8. You can't put an unpierced potato in the microwave. 9. It's generally a good idea to have wood in the house during the Winter because who wants to go the garage in 10F weather? 10. One should always read the directions when operating a new appliance...especially a washer! That's all for now! If anyone has appreciated these, please let me know and I will post another List. God Bless, Henry W. Roth  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

OMG! You put an unpierced potato in the Microwave??? Uncle Willard, that is BAD!!! Do you know what Dad used to do at night when he couldn't sleep? He'd eat spoonfuls of chunky peanut butter & then I'd find the spoons in the sink the next morning...I couldn't figure it out until I caught him at 3am one time :D! Pleasse do post some more lists!! Love ya lots, Germy hugs, A.J.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Another List of Ramblings January 14, 2005 5:24 AM

1. Jelly Bellies are addictive except for the speckled green ones. 2. Making & bottling one's homemade beer shouldn't be done w/ recycled bottled- not the old fashioned kind I use, anyhow :D! 3. Refering to #2, exploding bottles sounds like gunfire & will wake up the neighbors. 4. There is a reason for Tree Removal Services. 5. Old relish ain't good for one's internal organs. 6. You can never have too many humorous gifts from your Grandkids! 7. Never trust someone who says they'll help out & when they don't, will Not look you in the eye. 8. Cats and tiolets don't mix. 9. It's a good idea to have a backup filter for a 50 gallon Fish tank. 10. A keyboard is not that hard to use and can 'open up' new worlds, connections, and insights- no matter how Old You May Be!!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
