  1. There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read: Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension payment. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have no
  2. Where's Betaqdave to get us back on track?
  3. My family was like Lou's. My great-grandparents came here from Czechoslovakia and spoke only Czech. My grandparents spoke Czech at home, but could speak English when in public. My parents spoke only English in our home, but could speak Czech with my grandparents and would speak Czech when they didn't want my brother and I to know what they were saying. They did not teach us any Czech because they wanted us to be Americans and speak English. Some of my cousins can speak some Czech. I can understand a few phrases, but not enough to really hold a conversation.
  4. Surprisingly, I have retained most of the Spanish that I learned in grade school and high school (over 50 years ago!) and I know bits and pieces of other languages. I have a cousin who can speak 5 languages fluently and can read Egyptian hieroglyphics. The people I have a problem with are the ones who move to a country and refuse to learn the native language. I have a neighbor who has lived here for 20 years and still doesn't speak English. She has her kids translate for her. Her husband speaks English, but then he works here and knows he has to communicate with people in English.
  5. Hey Jack - like it or not, you still have all of us!! (With friends like us, who needs enemies?!)
  6. Never book a colonoscopy with a gastroenterologist named Dr Pain!
  7. HAPPY NATIONAL GREY-HAIRED GRUMPY OLD MAN DAY!!! to those of you who qualify and wish to partake! (Even Lou!)
  8. Jack - you DO realize that you are sending this to a bunch of senile, grey-haired old men who will probably forget about it by tomorrow! So I will give you recognition today! 😁
  9. You've got me stumped with that one OC
  10. We've got a couple of those, too. They are great at keeping solicitors away!
  11. Those pesky trucks are in our neighborhood all the time. They're probably the ones spreading the virus! I'm getting fed up with FedEx. One of our drivers doesn't come until after dark and never rings the bell to let us know something is out there. He doesn't bring it up to the door, either - he just leaves things on the sidewalk coming up to the porch (our porch is only 1 step high, so it's not like he has to climb a flight of stairs to get it to us). Our other FedEx drivers are fine. It's just the one that irks me.
  12. Hang in there OC. Your turn will come. 👍
  13. Imagna - Did you ever see the movie Apocalypse Now? There is a scene where a swarm of helicopters are on a run and they play Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries to instill fear into the Vietnamese soldiers who are hiding in the jungle below.
