Winter is Here! WW

 

WINTER HAS MADE A RUDE ANNOUNCEMENT &
here's what I woke up too!  COME ON... Give a girl an even break!  SHEESH!
My poor car is being buried!!!
 
Meet Elmer!  Yep, I've given them all names snicker~snicker!
Well, look who's back for the New Year's Eve Party!


Say hello to Elsie!




HAPPY NEW YEAR!

A Psalm Of Life

Henry Wadsworth LongfellowBy  More Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
     Life is but an empty dream!—
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
     And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!
     And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
     Was not spoken of the soul.

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
     Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow
     Find us farther than to-day.

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
     And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
     Funeral marches to the grave.

In the world's broad field of battle,
     In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
     Be a hero in the strife!

Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant!
     Let the dead Past bury its dead!
Act,—act in the living Present!
     Heart within, and God o'erhead!

Lives of great men all remind us
     We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
     Footprints on the sands of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
     Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
     Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,
     With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
     Learn to labor and to wait.

I submitted 10 puns to a joke-writing competition

to see if any of them made the finals.

Sadly, no pun in ten did.

TEN (10) THINGS I KNOW ABOUT YOU    
1) You are reading this.    
2) You are human.
3) You can’t say the letter ”P” without separating your lips.
4) You just attempted to do it.
6) You are laughing at yourself.    
7) You have a smile on your face and you skipped No. 5.
8) You just checked to see if there is a No. 5.
9) You laugh at this because you are a fun loving person & everyone does it too.
10) You are probably going to send this to see who else falls for it.  You have received this e-mail because I didn’t want to be alone in the idiot category.


Have a great Day. Laugh, and then Laugh and sing ” It’s a Beautiful Morning” even when it’s not.

  “Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.”
