Mathilda is 94 years young and I hope I do as well as she has at 80...

The New Alphabet

Now The  


A's for arthritis; B's the bad back, C's the chest pains,perhaps car-d-iac?  
is for dental decay and decline, E is for eyesight, can't read that top line! F is for fissures and fluid retention, G is for gas which I'd rather not mention.  
 H high blood pressure--I'd rather it low; I for incisions with scars you can show. J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend, K is for knees that crack when they bend. L 's for libido, what happened to sex? M is for memory, I forget what comes next. N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low; O is for osteo, bones that don't grow! 
 P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I'll be good as new! Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu? R is for reflux, one meal turns to two. 
 is for sleepless nights, counting my fears, T is for Tinnitus; bells in my ears! U is for urinary; troubles with flow; V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know. 
 W for worry, now what's going 'round? X is for X ray, and what might be found. Y for another year I'm left here behind, Z is for zest I still have-- in my mind! 
I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed,  and I'm keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!

Tribute to Soldiers

A friend sent this to me and I found it very poignant. But untrue.
Per Snopes, this bike was abandoned in 1954 by a local boy who had received it as a donation after the family homed burned down.  He didn't like the bike because it had hard solid rubber tires and tiny handlebars like a trike, so he simply left it next to the tree and unknown persons moved it into an upper limb where the tree consumed it.

Maxine and Taxes

What better way to spend your tax celebration than a smile!

Epic Car Damage by Valet

Next time you decide to valet your vehicle, remember this....via Elite News

As the website reports, the value of the Porsche, if authentic, could be worth as much as $200,000; tallies on the Grand Cherokee, GranTurismo S and Mini Cooper Countryman S come in at approximately $30,000, $120,000 and $28,000, respectively.

Hump Day Humor, Cat Sleep

1. The Full Situp
To achieve the full situp, you must begin with the genuine intention of exercising your abs 
and promptly fall asleep midway through the task. This position is extremely advanced  
and not recommended for amateur sleepers.

2. The Awkward Spoon
The goal here is not so much intimacy as it is the socially uncomfortable sharing of a  
physical space with someone. Bonus points if your arm falls asleep but you're too  
embarrassed to move it.
3. The Semicircle
Tuck your tail between your legs and imagine that you are an omelet.
4. The Sunbather
The trick is to look like someone who is acting comfortable whilst also appearing  
extremely uncomfortable. Let's take this excellent opportunity to coin the term "meta-comfortable."
5. The Double Bed
You will need a partner for this one. The goal is not so much comfort as an expression of sheer, unadulterated greed.
6. The Half-Box
Any old box will do, but two of your feet - preferably on opposite sides of your body -  
must remain outside the container at all times.
7. The Backstroker
Do not even attempt unless you have tiny, tiny, precious little legs.
8. The Sleeping Baby
Find a baby. Imitate the baby.
9. The Fur Pile
For this, you will need at least three friends who are not averse to your sleeping on them.

 10. The Full-Box
Just get your whole damn body in there no matter what it takes. Be the box.
11. The Drunken Radiator
Just because you are obviously some kind of gin-addled hobo doesn't mean you can't be nice and warm.
12. The Sleeping Dog
Find a dog. Imitate the dog.
13. The Librarian
Bury your furry little head in your paws and try to look as contemplative and  
bookish as possible before drifting off.
14. The Ruler
Measure the floor with every inch of your tiny body.
15. The Windowsill
The whole world is your hammock.
16. The Clothes Dryer
Imagine that you are a wet T-shirt, fresh from the washing machine. Drape yourself accordingly.
17. The Pot Luck
Think of yourself as a last-minute fruit salad that everyone will be very polite about  
but probably not enjoy all that much.
18. The Head-Rush
Head to the ground, paws in the air - let gravity do the rest.
19. The Odd One Out
For this one you will need first to find two willing conformists.
20. The Mid-Sentence
Only recommended for individuals with extreme forms of narcolepsy.
21. The Bag Of Limbs (Box Edition)
Have a friend or loved one take you apart and put you back together haphazardly inside a box.
22. The Bag Of Limbs (Couch Edition)
Same as above, except (obviously) without the box.
23. The Dog Bed
Not a bed for dogs, but a bed that is made of dogs. I.e., the most comfortable bed  
you will ever sleep on that also smells kind of funky.
24. The Office Worker
Fall asleep on the job. LOL.
25. The Married Couple
Don't be afraid to snore.
