BE SOMEBODY THAT MAKES EVERYBODY FEEL LIKE A SOMEBODY.

~ From a FromABirdie.com book of letters

Getting to this respectable age needs some special thoughts like these:

  • Wouldn’t it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes and come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller?
  • Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We have not met yet!
  • I don’t have grey hair; I have “wisdom highlights”
  • I don’t trip over things, I just do random gravity checks
  • If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees
  • Of course I talk to myself – sometimes I need expert advice
