A little humor…

Since everything appears to be going to crap, and I don’t feel like jumping into those frays… My BP and all that…

  1. Number 7. Also known as sailor resistant.

    Number 8. Only a ninety percent chance of going wrong? Experience would tend to put that number higher, and higher still if going wrong means damage or injury.

    Number 9. And at the head of the line of cars, you most likely will find a driver that should have given up their license a long, long, time ago.

    Thank you for making me smile!

    • no. 9
      have to. two lane major roads and miles of cars and semis are caught behind two crummy campers going between 5-15 mph with all their worldly goods hanging off the sides and clanking.
      in this case i finally honked them to the side when space became available and literally miles of trapped traffic started moving again. saw them for miles in the rear view mirror.
      when i am blocking traffic i move aside when possible and let it all pass. called ‘courtesy’.

  2. Number 1. I think Mark Twain is credited for making the statement, “Better for people to think you a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”

  3. If you follow number 10, you will have to identical shoes. Unless you have two left or two right feet, that will not work.

  4. Number 8. My sweetie says given 2 choices, I always pick the wrong one. It’s not my fault I’m left handed in a right handed world!!


  5. Number 11: The best time to shop for a Valentine’s Day card is 6:00 PM on Valentine’s day. There are far fewer cards to read through and chances are you won’t have to buy one next year.

  6. #9. If all the cars in the world are lined up, the left lane will be empty and therefore, passing them is completely safe. Sounds like the Texan is pretty smart.

  7. John- Yep, noticed that…LOL

    Marc- According to some ladies I’ve danced with, ‘I’ have two left feet… sigh

    Suz- LOL

    ERJ- Good point!

    Juvat- There IS that…LOL

  8. I exercised rule #14 to the “T” last night, yes it hurt.

  9. My favorite;
    Build a man a fire and he’s warm for the evening.
    Set a man on fire and he’s warm for the rest of his life!

  10. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

    Which explains why there are so many people with two left feet…..

  11. #9….Been there, done that…succeeded…
    everybody was slowed way down to beady-eye the accident of the guy that didn’t.
