This & That

 

 

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE?  How old do you feel?  Most of us are turning 68 before our reunion this summer.  Do you know that 163 days after your 68th birthday you will be 25,000 days old.  That sounds like something to celebrate to me.  Take your birthday and add 23 weeks and 2 days.  Save some cake for me.

THE REUNION

A group of 40 years old buddies discuss where they should meet for their reunion dinner. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at Ruby's Restaurant because the waitresses there wear low cut blouses.

10 years later, at 50 years of age, the group again pools their thoughts and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at Ruby's Restaurant because the food there is very good and the wine selection is good also.

10 years later at 60 years of age, the group again decides to discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at Ruby's Restaurant because they can eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant is smoke free.

10 years later, at 70 years of age, the group again discusses where they should meet for reunion dinner. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at Ruby's Restaurant because the restaurant is wheel chair accessible and they even have an elevator.

10 years later, at 80 years of age, the group again discusses where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at Ruby's Restaurant because that would be a great idea since they have never been there before.

MOMISMs

The following is taken from www.theholidayspot.com and it's just titled "Momisms"

"As a kid and even during our growing up years, we receive some sound scolding from our mothers time and again. These sharp comments and directives raise our indignation and irritation and we love to dismiss them as "unnecessary criticism" or "momism". But the fact is, we would not have mended many of our wrongdoings and grown up to be socially amiable without many of these timely utterances from our mothers. Amusingly, most of us grow up to mouth the same sayings of our mothers when we find ourselves in her shoes. This mother's Day, let us take a look at some well known "momisms". With little variations, these phrases have been repeated again and again by mothers around the world, irrespective of race, caste, social standing and religion. You may even find some of your own mom's sayings here. Enjoy this article and have a great reading time.
