Good News and some jokes
What to write tonight ?? I spoke to Julie again today and she said she was good and the pain better than before the op. She had an enormous tumour which they say should be benign and she wont need chemo. I hope they are right. When I had breast cancer 26 years ago – the specialist told me it wouldn’t be cancer, and later he rang after getting results from pathology and said it was, so I do hope Julie will not have to face that. She sounded so bright, had had a shower and 2 walks in the passage and sat in a chair. Then was told to get back in bed and not overdo it. I feel so much better knowing she is doing so well. Will put a few jokes in to change the subject !! Quotes about age and ageing ….After thirty, a body has a mind of it’s own. Bette Midler. Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. Satchel Paige. I have everything I had twenty years ago, only it’s all a bit lower. Gypsy Rose Lee. I prefer old age to the alternative. Maurice Chevalier. Old age is no place for sissies. Bette Davis. If I were younger, I’d know more. James Barrie. The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age. Lucille Ball. A few on drinking….. When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading. Henry Youngman. Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh I grant you that the wheel was a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza. Dave Barry. Sir if you were my husband, I would poison your drink. Lady Astor to Winston Churchill. Madam, if you were my wife, I would drink to. His reply. A woman drove me to drink and I didn’t even have the decency to thank her. W. C. Fields. I hope some of those brought a smile.
