Friday Flashback to Saturday Silly

(An Oldie!)

For a couple years I’ve blamed being tired on lack of sleep or too much pressure from being a homemaker, but now I’ve found out the real reason that I am always tired. I’m overworked. 

The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work.

There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work.        

Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work.       

2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work. 

14,800,000 people work for State and City Governments. That leaves 1.4 million to do the work. 
At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.       

Given that there are 1,211,998 people in prisons, that leaves just two people to do the work, you and me. 
And you’re sitting at your computer reading jokes!

Have a great weekend!!


Flashback to Saturday Silly

A little girl was holding her stomach saying, “Mommy, my tummy hurts.” Her mother replied, “That’s because it’s empty, you have to put something in it!”

Later, the Pastor and his wife were visiting and stayed for dinner. The Pastor wasn’t feeling well and said, “I have a terrible headache!”

The little girl perked up and smiled her sweetest smile. Then said, “Mom says that’s because it’s empty and you need to put something in it!”

Over 50, Defined: Words just for us that aren’t in the dictionary…YET! By Shel Harrington

Shel Harrington is one of the wittiest authors, word inventors I have ever read. Her book, Over 50, Defined: Words just for us that aren’t in the dictionary…YET! covers words for common things people over 50 often do that leave them scratching their heads. She dubs her invented words “Quinbloits,” apt, descriptive terms you won’t find in the dictionary (YET!).

I laughed so hard reading Over 50 and kept tracking down different family members insisting they listen as I read the definitions.

The illustrations are on target and add to the enjoyment of the book.

I defy anyone to read Over 50, Defined: Words just for us that aren’t in the dictionary…YET! and not laugh, not to mention recognize yourself in a couple of the definitions. Over 50 is one of the funniest spot-on books, about common occurrences that confuse and amuse you that I have read.
