The Good Old Days

Retro Life
A few days ago a friend sent me a link of some pictures that made my mind travel back in time. I enjoyed it very much and I think you will also. I was thinking about how nice it would be to sit down and go through these pictures with your children or grandchildren and talk about the ways things were when we were growing up. Check it out here:

Big Surprise for Me 
Mandy told us yesterday they had picked out a name for their baby boy that is due in July. They are naming him

Atley James Rogers!

When I heard they had Granddaddy in mind by giving him the “James” name I felt so unworthy. I like the name Atley too. It’ll make them the AAA family:
Alex, Amanda, and Atley!

Prayer should be the key of the day
and the lock of the night!

Joke of the Day

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she'd like to have for her birthday.

"I'd like to be eight again," she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Adventure World theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Roller Coaster, everything there was.

Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a Chocolate shake.
Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&M's. What a fabulous adventure!
Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted.

He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, "Well Dear, what was it like being eight again?"
Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.

"I meant my dress size, you Retard!!!!"

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening,
he is gonna get it wrong.

(Thanks my neighbor, Helen W.,for the above joke.)
