  • Musings

    Just some random musings I have had of late ...

    1) Some things that cost $5 to buy several years ago now costs $10 just to repair!

    2) We spend our whole youth to obtain wealth and our whole wealth to obtain youth.

    3) Utility is when you have one telephone; luxury is when you have two, and paradise is when you have none!

    4) Earlier people used to switch on TV after getting bored with their routine work. Now they switch on to routine work after getting bored with TV.

    5) First things first! But not necessarily in that order!

    6) The distinction between a manager and a leader is as broad as the distance between control and inspriation!

    7) There are three dimensions to credit cards -- length, width and debt!

    8) The easiest way to grow up is to surround yourself with people who are smarter than you.

    9) A recipe: A series of step-by-step instructions for preparing ingredients you forgot to buy, in utensils you don't own, to make a dish the dog won't eat!

    10) The bad news is times flies. The good news is you're the pilot.

    11) Everything is possible; just not too probable.

    12) One must remember your relatives had no choice in the matter either!

    13) The best way to keep your kids out of hot water is to put some dishes in it.

    14) Some people are bitter, some sour, some sweet. Who you hang out with depends on your taste.

    15) Some minds are like concrete ... all mixed up and permanently set!

    16) The definition of 'Luck' is when opportunity meets preparation.

    17) A vacation is what you take when you can't take what you've been taking any longer.

    18) Even though a marriage is made in heaven, the maintenance work has to be done here on earth!

    19) Vital papers will demonstrate their vitality by spontaneously moving from where you left them to where you can't find them.

    20) Where did moths congregate before light bulbs were invented?

    Any one else musing or as the Brain says, "Are you pondering what I am pondering?"

          Just a few more musings of late:

          1) There's a book that tells you where you should go on your vacation.
          It's called a checkbook!

          2) Some people have all the commitment of a kamikaze pilot on his tenth mission!

          3) An angry person is seldom reasonable; a reasonable person is seldom angry.

          4) An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion keeps everyone away.

          5) Money is an excellent servant, but a horrible master!

          6) When you walk backwards, it feels like you're helping everyone else move forward a little faster.

          7) Talk is cheap, barbers give it away free with haircuts.

          8) Every crown is made for a head, but every head is not made for a crown.

          9) Four-word story of failure: Hired, tired, mired, fired!

          10) Tact is the ability to describe others as they see themselves!

          11) My wife brings this to mind:
          Veni, Vidi, Visa: I Came, I Saw, I Shopped!

          12) The best time to plant an oak tree is 20 years ago, the next best time is right now!

            In honor of Mothers everywhere, a cute little story.

            A story that parents and pet-owners alike can identify with...

            So, we had this great 10 year old cat named Jack who just recently
            Jack was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit on
            him and
            nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all day long
            on this mat
            in our bathroom.
            Well, we have 3 kids and at the time of this story they were 4 years
            old, 3
            years old and 1 year old. The middle one is Eli. Eli really loves
            LOVES it. He kept asking to use my Chapstick and then losing it. So
            one day I showed him where in the bathroom I keep my Chapstick and how
            could use it whenever he wanted to but he needed to put it right back
            in the
            drawer when he was done.
            Last year on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush around and
            to get ready for church with everyone crying and carrying on. My two
            are fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I am trying to nurse my
            little one
            at the same time I am putting on my make-up. Everything is a mess and
            everyone has long forgotten that this is a
            wonderful day to honor me and the amazing job that is motherhood.
            We finally have the older one and the baby loaded in the car and I am
            looking for Eli. I have searched everywhere and I finally round the
            corner to go
            into the bathroom. And there was Eli. He was applying my Chapstick
            carefully... to Jack's rear end. Eli looked right into my eyes and
            said "chapped."
            Now if you have a cat, you know that he is right--their little butts
            do look
            pretty chapped. And, frankly, Jack didn't seem to mind.
            And the only question to really ask at that point was whether it was
            FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's behind..... or the
            And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever because it reminds us
            no matter how hard we try to civilize these glorious little creatures,
            will always be that day when you realize they've been using your
            Chapstick on
            the cat's butt....
