Just Jokes

Posted in Gr8fate

I thought I would just share some of my favorite jokes as of lately. Tell them at work or home and bring a little laughter to the world. -A guy is turning 90 and his friends want to make it a special day. They hire a prostitute who knocks on his door, throws open her coat and announces, “I’m here to give you super sex.” The guy thinks a few seconds then says, “I’ll take the soup.” -There was a Catholic priest, rabbi, and preacher who got together once a week for coffee at the local Starbucks. The topic of…

The Movies

Posted in Gr8fate

I LOVE going to the movies. I enjoy watching movies at home, but nothing beats being in a dark, cool theater and having an entire wall where I can focus my attention, forget my problems, and eavesdrop into someone else’s life. The previews, (I hate to admit) are one of my favorite parts. I’ve been known to get goosebumps as they begin and the lights dim. Being early is a must or the movie going experience isn’t complete. The first showing is preferable so that I still have the time and energy to accomplish weekend chores. After I get my…

Keep your wits about you

Posted in Gr8fate

My mom frequently says, “Keep your wits about you!” I think of her when I do really dumb things and feel overwhelmed. As a mother, wife, sister, friend, and teacher, I have many things on my mind.

As a child, I had dreams. As a young adult, I had goals. Now that I am older, I have a bucket list. One goal was to catch a hummingbird and pet it. Opportunity came knocking on my door (banging on my window) a couple of summers ago. That hummer flew into my window and knocked itself out. It was lying on the barbecue grill. I picked it up and put it in a paper bag. Five minutes later, it started fluttering. I gently placed my hand inside and I was able to hold it. I did pet it several…

Worth the Weight

Posted in Gr8fate

I have finally reached the weight on my driver’s license!!! You know how it is…you get your driver’s license and figure you should weigh say…15 pounds less. So you go ahead and write that wishful weight down (it’s not like they make you step on a scale). The policeman that pulls you over for speeding will never know your true weight especially since you are sitting down. (Suck in your gut as he approaches the window. Relax as he goes back to his vehicle. Suck in again when he comes back.) Weight – “never ask a woman her weight”. It…
