Some musings on everyday life….
I live in my own little world, but it’s ok… they know me here.
I don’t do drugs or alcohol, ’cause I find I get the same effect just by standing up really fast.
Money can’t buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.
I don’t approve of political jokes… I’ve seen too many of them get elected.
The most precious thing we have is life. Yet it has absolutely no trade-in value.
I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.
I married my wife for her looks… but not the ones she’s been giving me lately!
Everyday I beat my own previous record for the number of consecutive days I’ve stayed alive.
The next time you feel like complaining, remember: Your rubbish bin probably has better food in it than 30 percent of the people in this world.
Every time I go to a singles bar, I can hear my mother’s wise words: “Don’t pick that up, you don’t know where it’s been.”
When everything’s coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
Be nice to the nerds and geeks in college – you’ll be working for them in the future.
The email of the species is more deadly than the mail.
The Lord gave us two ends: One to sit on and the other to think with. Success depends on which one we use the most.
I don’t know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
Long ago when old people cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it’s called golf.
