A Cross Country Trip…

Four guys are driving cross-country together — one from Idaho, one from Iowa, one from Florida, and the last one is from New York.

After a while, the man from Idaho starts pulling potatoes from his bag and throwing them out the window. The man from Iowa asks, “What the heck are you doing?” The man from

Idaho says, “Man, we have so many of these darned things in Idaho — I’m sick of looking at them!”

A few more miles and the man from Iowa begins pulling ears of corn from his bag and throwing them out the window. The man from Florida asks, “What are you doing?” The man from Iowa replies, “Man, we have so many of these things in Iowa — I’m sick of looking at them!”

Inspired by the others, the man from Florida opens the car door and pushes the New Yorker out.

Author’s Note

Being a native Floridian, I find this absolutely hysterical. Being married to a New Yorker and the son of a New Yorker just happens to be circumstantial and not any inclination toward my feelings about those two individuals… or does it?

21 Good Rules

From a daily email I get from Mikey's Funnies.
*****

1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

2. Marry someone you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

3. When someone says “Thank you,” reply with “You’re welcome.”

4. When you say, “I love you,” mean it.

5. When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.

6. Be engaged at least twelve months before you get married.

7. Believe in love at first sight.

8. Never laugh at anyone’s dream. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

9. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

10. In disagreements, fight fairly. Agree to disagree. No name calling.

11. Don’t judge people by their relatives.

12. Talk slowly but think quickly.

13. When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

14. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

15. Say “Bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.

16. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

17. Remember the three R’s:  Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

18. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

19. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

20. Smile when answering your phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

21. Spend some time alone.

Valentine’s Day…

Valentine’s Day is upon us… again. And for all my “Forever-Alone’s*” out there, this one is for you. John Kovalic (I let you figure out how to pronounce that one) nails it on the head with this one.

Happy Super Wuv Twue Wuv Happy Hour

*Forever-Alone: a term I first heard from my daughter in which a person seems to never have a significant other in their life (dog’s and cat’s do not count (but too many cat’s is a sure sign)).
