My granddaughter, Kara, has a special birthday today. She begins her time in life as a TEENAGER!

I just might have a picture of Kara tomorrow showing you what a new teenager looks like.

Did you get those resolutions made yet. A lot of married me do not have to make new year’s resolutions, because their wives make them for them.

What is a New Year’s Resolutions. A resolution is nothing more that a promise to yourself to change something you do for the better.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:

Did you ever know anyone who was as good with word as this politician?

A Senator in the USA was once asked about his attitude toward whisky.

'If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against it.  But if you mean the elixir of a New Year toast, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I'm for it.  This is my position, and I will not compromise.'

Quotes of the Day

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
And here's a hand, my trusty friend
And gie's a hand o' thine
We'll tak'A cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.


Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Joke of the Day

A ventriloquist stops to entertain some people in a small town. He's going through his usual stupid George W. jokes, when George W. himself walks up.

"I've heard just about enough of your denigrating George W. jokes!" He says. "What makes you think you can stereotype me that way? What does a person's knowledge of geography and world politics have to do with their worth as a human being? It's guys like you who keep people like me from being respected at work and in my community. I'm as smart as anyone else and..."

The ventriloquist begins to apologize, when George W. stops him.

"You stay out of this, Mister. I'm talking to that little smart aleck on your knee!"

Happy 13 to Kara! Teens are a wonder, aren't they. How I remember and sometimes I even want to go back.

As for resolutions, I have one, and that is to take Better Care of Me. I'm so busy being Mom, Grandma, Friend, that I have badly neglected Me. Selfish, yes, but I best get on with it or suffer the consequences.

Love this entry.

Happy New Year and BlessYourHeart

how's that knee?
