Gentle Lessons of Life...from my blog friend, Penny--this is my 97th post!

Gentle Lessons of Life


When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbor's dog run to the end of his chain.
*************
A penny saved is obviously the result of a
government oversight.
*************

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
**********

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.
**********

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a new replacement for it.

**********
He who hesitates is probably doing the right thing.
**********

Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are ' XL.'
**********
If you think there is some good in everybody, you obviously haven't met 'everybody'.
**********
If you can smile when things go wrong, you must have someone else in mind to blame.
**********
The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so that he can tell when he's 'really' in trouble.
**********
There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.
**********
Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs.'

*********
Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
*********
The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
**********
Some people try to turn back their life's odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long, long way and some of the road s weren't paved.
***********

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra..

***********
You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
***********
One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.
**********
Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
**********
First you forget names, then you forget faces. Then you forget to pull up your zipper. It's even worse when you forget to pull it down.
***********
Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft.
Today, it's called golf

*********
Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth...AMEN..!

I liked the "did you ever notice the roman numeral for fourty (40) is "XL" ---
HOW ABOUT:
thirty is "XXL"
fourty is "XL"
fifty is "L"
We all ar going the wrong way!
one hundred is "C" as in see I made it.
