Ron Chester, 89 years of age,  was stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and was asked where he was going at that time of night.

Ron replied, “I’m on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late.”

The officer asked, “Really?  And who’s giving that lecture at this time of night?”

Ron replied, “That would be my wife.”

Shrinking Joke

Being Monday and a rather gloomy day around here, I though a joke was in order.

(I don’t know who took the picture of the owl, but if anyone does, I’ll happily site them! It’s a great picture, I just added the joke.)

Joan Rivers – A Funny Lady

If you haven’t heard, Joan Rivers, at the age of 81 died a couple days ago. Joan may have been a bit crude but she was truthful. This is the piece I heard on public radio yesterday.

She was on the Johnny Carson Show and Johnny was prompting her with a question something like this:

Johnny: Don’t you think men really like intelligent woman?

Joan: No! Are you kidding me? I don’t think a man who has his hand up a woman’s skirt is looking for a library card.

Photo Phriday

Had to do something related to Easter – or at least related to all the eggs lying around.

Where are you in 2014?

from kimchisweettea.com

from kimchisweettea.com – peek a boo, where are you?

I wanted to acknowledge the new year in some fashion so this got me to thinkin’ (look out!) not about were we are going in 2014 but where we are now. You can ask this question collectively or individually, which ever suits your fancy because, in my opinion, the answer is still the same: We/You are exactly where you’re supposed to be, and for that matter, exactly where you should be putting your focus.

Now, I know this is not a new concept to most of you, but I think it is a concept that is hard for vast majority of us. We all want to know what is ahead for us as individuals, for our friends and family, for our planet as a whole. We’d all be a lot less stressed if we knew what was coming, though I really doubt that – we’d just find something else to get stress about. One of those other things we tend to perseverate  on is the past: what we did (particularly, what we’ve done wrong), what someone else did to us. But neither strategy gets us very far. Why? Because we’re not concentrating on the here and now, not paying attention to what we are doing or who we are doing it with.  We might be missing something in this very moment that could help us but we are focusing on something that has already happened that we can’t even change or something that hasn’t even occurred yet and might not ever occur. (Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying we shouldn’t look at our past and learn from it. I think that is the only real use to spending time in the past.)

When you spell it out in this fashion, it seems so logical, it seems to make such sense to stop worrying about something that has already happened or something that has yet to occur – both are things we have no control over whatsoever. Ah…but there is the rub. As logical or as helpful as living in the moment may be, it is something we as humans have the most trouble with.

Why is that? Why does this issue take up so much of our time and our energy? I’m not sure, really. I know it has something to do with choice. Our creator (the humorist that he/she is) gave us free choice: choice to dwell on past events, choice to think about our future… But the choice that children and plants and animals exhibit most often is living in the here and now. Why is that?

I’m not quite sure other than I’ve never met a young child that had to take medication for an ulcer or because their blood pressure was too high. These small beings just might be onto something!

I hope you are onto something as well, in the new year to come – but don’t sit around worrying about it, OKAY! ;)

Tarzan’s Birthday

I missed it. It was Tarzan’s birthday yesterday.

Tarzan was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912. I think I might have one of those original books. I got it from my father’s book collection when he passed. That type of action adventure story would be just what my dad would have liked. In fact, my dad liked Tarzan so much he had vinyl records (they feel like vinyl plates they are so thick) of Tarzan. They sound great on my crank phonograph. I imagine back in 1912, that was quite the story, and seeing how many times it’s been redone in various forms, I think people today still like a good Tarzan story, too.

from one of the original Tarzan movies with Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan, Maureen O'Sullivan as Jane, and Johnny Sheffield as "boy." I don't know the name of the ape.

I think a new Tarzan should be coming around again, don’t you think? Maybe I’ll do a knock off it someday. Sounds like a fun project.

April Joke

rock jokeI know it’s past April 15th but I saw this on speedbump.com and thought it was funny. It really is funny sometimes, what we think is valuable. (Thanks speedbump! I can’t read the scribble in the left bottom corner to see who the artist or I’d give them credit too)
