Advantages of living beyond 50 years!

 

Well, I think it should be titled beyond 70 or even 80.....50 seems awfully young.  Don't laugh...... 

 

No one expects you to run--anywhere.

People call at 9 pm and ask,"did I wake you up?"

Things you buy now won't wear out.

You can eat supper at 4 pm.  

You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge. 

You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

Your eyes won't get much worse.

Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay
off.

Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national
weather service.

Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

You can't remember who posted this list.

And you notice these are all in Bold Print for your convenience.

And finally.....never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    May your stuffing be tasty
    May your turkey plump,
    May your potatoes and gravy
    Have nary a lump.
    May your yams be delicious
    And your pies take the prize,
    And may your Thanksgiving dinner
    Stay off your thighs
    Happy Thanksgiving to all.....................
     
    Gentle hugs,

    "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, and confusion into clarity. ... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." ~ Melodie Beattie

    as my brother, god rest his soul, would say "You WHAT?? You are so unamerican because every american likes turkey and pumpkin pie." I always said "Must be the native american indian side in me." Believe it or not, he always managed to get me to eat a very small piece of turkey and sliver of pumpkin pie. But I still dont like either turkey or pumpkin pie!

    Did you know that there are at least three American towns named after Thanksgiving dinner's main course? There's Turkey, Texas, with 496 residents; Turkey Creek, Louisiana, with 357 residents, and Turkey, North Carolina, with 267 residents. There are also eight places and townships named Cranberry, and 20 places named Plymouth, after the location of the first Thanksgiving.

    That is interesting Joyce. Where do you find all your facts? There is a plymouth MI too.

    I love reading your factual posts. Keep up the good work.

    Hey Karen,  lots of 'stuff' in the newspaper, from friends... and of course. the internet!
     
    Did you know that:
     

    The First Thanksgiving lasted for three days

    Americans feast on 535 million pounds of turkey on Thanksgiving

    Turkeys can drown if they look up when it is raining

    Folks thought the cranberry plant resembled a crane’s head and neck. The name craneberry stuck, eventually becoming cranberry  

    Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird of the United States. It was Thomas Jefferson who opposed him and this is why it is believed that Franklin named the male turkey ‘tom’ to spite Jefferson

    Wow I did know tht Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird, but I didn't know that was why they call it tom. That is interesting Joyce. Thanks for the facts. Very entertaining also.

    I hope that you have a good holiday tomorrow. We are cooking at home this year. Usually go to the grandkids, but staying home this time. May have some company too. I invited a friend that is going to be alone. I hope she comes. If not more for me... lol... I love the left overs. lol...

    Take care all...

    After Thanksgiving

     

    I ate too much turkey, I ate too much corn,

    My stomach is swollen and sore,

    But there's still some dessert so I guess it won't hurt if
    I eat just a little bit more!

    Black Friday...
     
    In 1966 the Philadelphia Police Department coined the term “Black Friday” for the day after Thanksgiving due to the overcrowded sidewalks and massive traffic jams of shoppers.
     
    Black Friday isn't always the busiest shopping day of the year, that day is usually the Saturday before Christmas

    I absolutely love the over 50 list, Joyce-sooo true...how nice to come home and wake up to my hw friends instead of a bunch of 10 pathetic creatures shuffling around in hospital garb, ready to kill for real coffee (decaf only)-no wonder we were depressed-lol

    Thanks for the fun stuff

    According to Farmer’s Almanac, one sign a harsh, cold winter is coming is a large amount of acorns on the ground in the fall.
     
    True! It’s said squirrels will start gathering nuts earlier than usual to fortify themselves against a hard winter.

    I hope we don't have a hard winter this year. I heard it was going to be though. i want a short one. So far no snow. lol... It can hold off until Christmas for all I care. I don't like snow. But live where I live so I shouldn't complain.

    Squirrels and nuts eh? Yeah, I believe that. I wonder how many they gathered this winter???

    Luv and hugs, Karen
