Friday Once Again

Most of the really interesting, compassionate and influential people in the world have faced major disappointments, had their hearts broken once or twice, and experienced loneliness, despair and failure. Not surprisingly, these are the same people who create the beautiful art, music, dance and theatre around us and who grow into intuitive, generous, and loving pathfinders that open the hearts of others.

sometimes when i look up into the star-filled night sky past the silhouettes of trees my soul floating up up up through the branches through the leaves towards the heavens past the Milky Way around Orion's belt to the furthest reaches of space and time i think of you and how much you love me feel you deep inside of me in my heart in my soul a part of everything i know and no longer feel alone ~ poem "When I Look Up" by Michael Traveler, author of Postcards from the Backroads

Have a great Friday

"I believe in pink. 
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong 
when everything seems to be going wrong. 
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. 
I believe that tomorrow is another day and
I believe in miracles." ~ Audrey Hepburn

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.

Waiting for spring can you tell?

I'd give to you a day just like today perfect for you in every way
if I had a song that I could sing for you
I'd sing a song to make you feel this way..."

Worth the read for good laugh!
So true for the 70+ age group and for some over 50 too!

When I bought my Blackberry I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800 employees,
all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up (under duress) for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, my 13 grand kids and 2 great grand kids could communicate with me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of space. My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything except the bowel movements of the entire next generation. I am not ready to live like this. I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag.
The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get lost every now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I keep that in a box under my tool bench with the Blue tooth [it's red] phone I am supposed to use when I drive. I wore it once and was standing in line at Barnes and Noble talking to my wife and everyone in the nearest 50 yards was glaring at me. I had to take my hearing aid out to use it, and I got a little loud. I mean the GPS looked pretty smart on my dash board, but the lady inside that gadget was the most annoying, rudest person I had run into in a long time. Every 10 minutes, she would sarcastically say, "Re-calc-u-lating." You would think that she could be nicer. It was like she could barely tolerate me. She would let go with a deep sigh and then tell me to make a U-turn at the next light. Then if I made a right turn instead. Well, it was not a good relationship... When I get really lost now, I call my wife and tell her the name of the cross streets and while she is starting to develop the same tone as Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she loves me.
To be perfectly frank, I am still trying to learn how to use the cordless phones in our house. We have had them for 4 years, but I still haven't figured out how I lose three phones all at once and have to run around digging under chair cushions, checking bathrooms, and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone rings.
The world is just getting too complex for me. They even mess me up every time I go to the grocery store. You would think they could settle on something themselves but this sudden "Paper or Plastic?" every time I check out just knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid looking confused, but I ever remember to take them with me. Now I toss it back to them. When they ask me, "Paper or plastic?" I just say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual." Then it's their turn to stare at me with a blank look. I was recently asked if I tweet. I answered, "No, but I do fart a lot."
P.S. I know some of you are not over 70. I sent it to you to allow you to forward it to those who are. I figured your sense of humor could handle it. We senior citizens don't need anymore gadgets. The TV remote and the garage door remote are about all we can handle.
