GOODBYE 2005...HELLO 2006

Here it is...

New Year's Eve 2005

I awoke this morning with a stiff back!

I guess that's another sign that I am getting older.

I got a Thai Chi DVD for Christmas and plan to start trying that form of exercise.

My New Year's resolution is to get fit and healthy in the year of 2006.

That was my resolution for 2005 ALSO...

Ah.... wait a minute...

That was also my resolution for the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's...

Can't break a good tradition now, can I?

So, 2006 is THE year to make my resolution come true.

Here's to a fit and healthy New Year!

WEEKEND ASSIGNMENT # 90

Weekend Assignment #90: Share a treasured holiday memory. If it happened during the holiday season (which means, basically, from the the day after Thanksgiving to the end of the Bowl Games), it's eligible.

This is a picture of my sister, Barbara and me.

I am holding the doll. I wish that I still had it!

If you look behind me you will see Finger Paints in a box on the floor.

Extra credit:
Fruitcake: Ever, you know, had any?

Every year my Dad would buy a Claxton fruitcake.

We were the only ones in the family who would eat it. It was pretty good except for the nuts which I would pick out.

Hummmm....maybe, I will try to find a Claxton fruitcake this year and raise a piece to heaven for my Dad!

SANTA CLAUS

I have always believed in Santa.

I watch him come down the street in Macy's Thanksgiving Parade every year and get exited.

I'm having a little trouble believing this year.

Does that mean....

That I'm Getting Old????

A SENIOR MOMENT

 True story


   This is a true account recorded in the Police Log
 of Sarasota, Florida...

   An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her voice, "I have a gun, and I know how
 to use it! Get out of the car!"


  The four men didn't wait for a second invitation.


They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bag into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat.

She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then it dawned on her why...

For the same reason she did not understand why there was a football, a frisbee and two 12 packs in the front seat...

   A few minutes later, she found her own car parked
 four or five spaces farther down.

   She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing.


He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair and carrying a large handgun.

   No charges were filed.

   MORAL OF THE STORY?

   If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it memorable.
