Hello to you all ~~ My weekend is half over as it’s Saturday

night. But I hope that you have a great weekend.

I have had a fun time today. I bought some new cordless

phones yesterday and charged their batteries overnight.

Now I have them set up and working which is great.


The next job, (maybe when I finish this) I will install the

phone numbers of my family and friends. That is why I can

never tell what their phone numbers are, when I just have to

push a button. It looks simple enough ~ wish me luck.

<><><><> First tonight ~~ some Reflections. <><><><>

Love is like wildflowers. It’s often found in the most unlikely places.


To get more out of life, give more of yourself.

Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is.

You’ll learn more about a road by travelling it than by consulting all the maps in the world.


When fate shuts a door, come in through the window.


No failure is ever final, nor is any success.


If you’re doing your best, you wont have time to worry about failure.


Dreams come true for those who work while they dream.


No one is guaranteed happiness. Life just gives us time and space. It’s up to us to fill it with joy and meaning.


Do for others with no desire of returned favors.

We all should plant some trees we’ll never sit under.


True wealth is what you are, not what you have.


Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

<><><><<> The usual Joke or two <><><><>

A sales rep, an administration clerk and the manager are

walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a genie appears.

The genie says, I’ll give each of you one wish.”

“Me first! Me first!” says the admin clerk. “I want to be in

the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.”

Poof! She’s gone.


“Me next! Me next!” says the sales rep. “I want to be in Hawaii,

relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless

supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.”

Poof! He’s gone.

“OK, you’re up,” says the Genie to the manager. The manager

says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”

Moral of the story.

Always let your boss have the first say.

Fun stuff, Merle. That last anecdote reminds me of an old joke. A cowboy riding along an old wagon trail spots an Indian lying on the ground with his ear to a wagon rut in the road.

When the cowboy approaches the Indian, the brave says, "Wagon, three horses, woman driving."

The cowboy is astounded. "You can tell all that listening to the track with your head to the ground?"

"No," said the Indian. "Wagon ran over me an hour ago."

Glad to hear that your new phones are charged up and working! Ohhhh ... the installing of the names and phone numbers. Draggingly dreadful process ... but worth it when you are finished. Good luck and lots of patience with that!!

I'm in the process of entering numbers into my new phone. I've done the essentials but I have many more to go.

It is fortunate for us that my wife enjoys putting the numbers in the cordless - and the cell phones - otherwise they wouldn't be there. :) And I worked almost 38 years with the phone company.

It just doesn't take much to impress us guys, does it? :) ec

Hi Merle, I like the idea of this one.

We all should plant some trees we’ll never sit under.
