“I am thankful for small mercies.  I compared notes with one of my friends who expects everything of the universe, and is disappointed when
anything is less than the best, and I found that I begin at the other extreme, expecting nothing, and am always full of thanks for moderate goods.”

Subject: – Old Age and Wisdom

I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds. People get out of the way much faster now.
Gone are the days when girls used to cook like their mothers. Now they drink like their fathers.
I decided to stop calling the bathroom the “John” and renamed it the “Jim”.. I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
Old age is coming at a really bad time. When I was a child I thought “NapTime” was a punishment. Now, as a grownup, it feels like a small vacation.
The biggest lie I tell myself is, “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it”
I don’t have grey hair; I have “wisdom highlights.” I’m just very wise.
Teach your daughter how to shoot, because a restraining order is just a piece of paper.
If God wanted me to touch my toes, He would’ve put them on my knees.
Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven’t met yet.
Why do I have to press one for English when you’re just going to transfer me to someone I can’t understand anyway?
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice.
& now finally –
Life is great. I have more friends I should send this to, but right now I can’t remember their names.
This 101 year old Michigan lady and her helper had her 1930 Packard on
display at the 2012  Glenmoor Gathering Councours Show near Canton, Ohio.
She stood and talked to all who came up to her. What a pleasant and peppy lady. 
Take notice in the video that she lays a shop rag on the running board  to
step onto when she gets in and out of the car.  After she is in the car, she
leans all the way down to the running board to get the rag. She is in great physical shape for her age. 
Click on the internet address below to view this beautiful car and listen to this ageless lady.

Subject: 52 years ago – chilling

This was 52 years ago. April 3, 1965. An amazing prediction. Can you remember the famous ABC radio commentator Paul Harvey? Millions of Americans listened to his programs whichwere broadcast over 1,200 radio stations nationwide.

When you listen to this, remember… the commentary was broadcast 52 years> ago on April 3, 1965. It’s short… less than three minutes. You will be amazed…and mad that it’s come to this!
