Well, I just got the call from Brenda, my best friend ... her mom passed this morning of a massive heart attack ... she was able to push the button around her neck and call lifeline to say she was having breathing difficulties ... EMS arrived but were unable to revive her ... Massive heart attack ... age 86 ... she was a lovely woman ... she and brother Mannie, sister Sue took me in as one of their own ... treated me like family ... Have so many memories at family gatherings ... made the best stuffing at Thanksgiving and the last Thanksgiving we made a list of the pinch of this and the pinch of that as she had never had it written down, it was all in her head ... she will be missed ... Goodbye Miss Birdie ... Love you ...

RIP ~ MISS BIRDIE ...

SIXTEEN THINGS THAT IT TOOK ME OVER 50 YEARS TO LEARN ..... by Dave Barry

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.



2. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.(This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)



3. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.



4.People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.



5.You should not confuse your career with your life.



6.There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."



7. Never lick a steak knife.



8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.



9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.



10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.



11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.



12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.



13.If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve its full potential, that word would be "meetings."



14. Your friends love you anyway.



15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.



FINAL Thought for the day: Men are like a fine wine. They start out as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

LOL!!
Thanks for reminding me of Dave Barry!
I used to look forward to his column in the Sunday papers, the high point of my week. There are two or three of his books in a drawer somewhere here. Like-'Babies and Other Hazards of Sex'
Anytime I go to buy paint, I think about his 'off white' paint colors (depends on how much rat crap is in it!).

Good morning Flower-Child.
Sorry to hear about your friend/practically family member passing away.
I like Ray Lamontagne. I think 'Beg Steel or Borrow' might end up being one of my favorite all-time songs.
We are in a wind advisory today, possible gusts to over 50!
See, gale warnings and Lanai is all brown?-
http://www.prh.noaa.gov/pr/hnl/
When I see that all brown, it makes me think,'oh crap' lol (seems to be the word of the day).
I'm all set to take the boat to Maui Friday, I hope the wind calms down by then!- It's supposed to.

Hello everyone who has stopped by during these past difficult days ... Ricky, thanks for reminding me of Dave Barry ... his writings used to crack me up ... wasn't there a show on him as well? I wan't to say there was ... it'd of been just as goofy ... I hope everyone here has been well and in good spirits ... We've been planning and finally have all the details down to the wire, ie., memorial tomorrow evening and burial Saturday morning in Houston so I'll be back on Sunday ... so yall hold the fort down ... This lady was classy, smart as a whip, quick with wit, fun, funny, claimed me as one of hew own ... she did't have 3 daugters ---> she had 4 (me) ha! That also meant I had to help with the dishes and stuff, too. lol ... We have so many memories all good ... she took care of us, we took care of her ... This lady was the perfect exambple of prim and proper ... I can't make claim to that but she sure can ... Miss her already ... I'm offline now for a few days ... yall take care, behave ... Be fair, play nice *wink*... Luvya, FC <3 ...
