Advice From An Old Friend

Here’s What They Said

“First I was dying to finish my high school and start college, and then I was dying to finish college and start working.

“Then I was dying to marry and have children. then I was dying for my children to grow up and have grandchildren.

“By then I was dying to retire…

“And now I am really dying….
And suddenly I realized that I forgot to live.

“Please don’t let this happen to you. Appreciate your current situation and enjoy each day.”

Someone said it well…

To make money we lose out health,
And then to restore our health we lose our money…
We live as if we are never going to die,
And we die as if we never lived.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
There are three keys to making a good speech:
A good introduction. A good ending.
And... keeping them close together.

Quote of the Day
Do not let what you cannot do
interfere with what you can do. 
~John Wooden

Joke of the Day

"How's your new job at the factory?" one guy asked another.

"I'm not going back there."

"Why not?"

"For several reasons," he answered. "The sloppiness, the shoddy workmanship, the dishonesty, the awful language ... they just couldn't put up with it."


A lumberjack appears for an interview at an Oregon logging camp. 'Watch this!' he says, a chops down two acres of trees in a record setting time.

'That's absolutely incredible,' says the foreman, 'Where did you learn to chop trees like that?'

'In the Sahara Forest.'

'You mean the Sahara Desert.'

'Yeah, NOW.'
