    Five Horses Is Her Name

    This is mythical and deep.  Truly beautiful...

    What does it mean?"

Fw: Never Believe an Irishman

     Never Believe an Irishman
    An Irishman was drinking in a bar in  London when he gets a call on his cell phone.
    He orders drinks for everybody in the bar as he announces his wife has just produced a typical
    Irish baby boy weighing 25 pounds.
    Nobody can believe that any new baby can weigh in at 25 pounds, but the man just shrugs,
    "That's about average up our way, folks... like I said my boy's a typical County Clare baby boy."
    Two weeks later the man returns to the bar.
    The bartender says, "Say, you're the father of that typical Irish baby that weighed 25 pounds at birth, aren't you?
    Everybody's been making' bets about how big he'd be in two weeks .... so how much does he weigh now?"
    The proud father answers, "Seventeen pounds."
    The bartender is puzzled and concerned. "What happened?" "He was 25 pounds the day he was born."
    The father takes a slow swig of his Jameson Irish Whisky, wipes his lips on his shirt sleeve, leans into the bartender and proudly says,
    "Had him circumcised."



Fw: God Bless the Lady Plumber


    Remember her!

         Irena Sendler

    Died: May 12, 2008 (aged 98)
    Warsaw ,  Poland

    During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the  Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.
      She had an ulterior motive.

    Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried.
      She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.

    Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.

    The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.

    During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.

    Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi's broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.

    Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, in a glass jar that she buried under a tree in
    her back yard.  After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family.
    Most had been gassed.  Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

    In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize.
    She was not selected.
    Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.

    Later another politician,
    Barack Obama, won for his work as a community organizer for ACORN.

Fw: Yes, this is us!


Senior citizens are constantly being 
criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.

upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took

 melody out of music,

 pride out of appearance,

 courtesy out of driving,

 romance out of love,

 commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,

 learning out of education,
The service out of patriotism,

 Golden Rule from rulers,

 nativity scene out of cities,

 civility out of behavior,

 refinement out of language,

 dedication out of employment,

 prudence out of spending,

 ambition out of achievement or
God out of government and school.

And we certainly are NOT the ones who
eliminated patience and tolerance from
personal relationships and interactions with

And, we do understand the meaning of

patriotism, and remember those who have
fought and died for our country. 

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand
 at attention with their hand over their hearts!


I'm the life of the party..... Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

I'm very good at opening childproof caps.....

With a hammer.

I'm awake many hours before my body allows

me to get up.

I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.

I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.

I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.

I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life! Now if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn't send it back to them.
Spread the laughter
Share the cheer
Let's be happy
While we're here.
Go Green - Recycle the Senate!!

FW: Why parents drink

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything   was picked up. Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to 'Dad.'

With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I   had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid   a scene with Mom and you.

I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.  

But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it's not only the passion, Dad.......she's pregnant.

Stacy said that we will be very happy.

She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children...  

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone.

We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.

In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it.  

Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself.  

Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren.

Love, Your Son John


PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house.   I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a report card that's in my center desk drawer.  I love you.   Call me when it's safe to come home.


Fw: The "Back Nine" of Life


    You know.  . . time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware  of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was  young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate.  Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all  the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses  of how it was back then and of all my hopes and  dreams.

    But, here  it is... the "back nine" of my life and it catches me by  surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go  and where did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people  through the years and thinking that those older people were  years away from me and that "I was only on the first hole" and  the "back nine" was so far off that I could not fathom it or  imagine fully what it would be  like.

    But, here  it is...my friends are retired and getting grey...they move  slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and  some worse shape than me...but, I see the great change...Not  like the ones that I remember who were young and  vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we  are now those older folks that we used to see and never  thought we'd become. Each day now, I find that just getting a  shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a  treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own  free will... I just fall asleep where I  sit

    And  so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared  for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and  ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never  did!! But, at least I know, that though I'm on the "back  nine", and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know,  that when it's over on this earth...it's over. A new adventure  will begin!

    Yes, I  have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I  should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy  to have done. It's all in a  lifetime.

    So, if  you're not on the "back nine" yet...let me remind you, that it  will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would  like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don't  put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what  you can today, as you can never be sure whether you're on the  "back nine" or not! You have no promise that you will see all  the seasons of your life...so, live for today and say all the  things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope  that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you  have done for them in all the years  past!!

    "Life" is  a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to  those who come after. Make it a fantastic  one.




    BE HAPPY  !


    Remember  "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and  silver.

    LIVE HAPPY  IN 2013!


    ~Your kids  are becoming you......but your grandchildren are  perfect!

    ~Going out  is good.. Coming home is better!
    ~You  forget names.... But it's OK because other people forgot they  even knew you!!!
    ~You  realize you're never going to be really good at anything....  especially golf.
    ~The  things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but  you really do care that you don't care to do them  anymore.
    ~You sleep  better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It's  called "pre-sleep".
    ~You miss  the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF"  switch..
    ~You tend  to use more 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"..."  ???
    ~Now that  you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it  anywhere.
    ~You  notice everything they sell in stores is  "sleeveless"?!!!
    ~What used  to be freckles are now liver spots.
    ~Everybody  whispers.
    ~You have  3 sizes of clothes in your closet.... 2 of which you will  never wear.
    ~~~But Old  is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies, and best of  all, OLD FRIENDS!!
    Stay well,  "OLD FRIEND!" It's Not  What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of  Life You Have Lived.
