WHEN I'M AN OLD LADY.......

When I'm an old lady,  I'll live with each kid,
And bring so much happiness...just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they've provided.
Returning each deed.   Oh, they'll be so excited.
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

I'll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues;
And I'll bounce on the furniture....wearing my shoes.
I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out;
I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they'll shout;
When I'm an old lady and live with each kid)

When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
I'll get into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then shake their heads.
(When I;m an old lady and live with my kids)

When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll not eat my green beans, salad or meat;
I'll gag on my orka, spill milk on the table,
And when they get angry....I'll run, if I'm able.
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

I'll sit close to the TV, through the channels I'll click,
I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick.
I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud 'till the end of the day.
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh;
I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping;
And say with a groan,
"She's so sweet when she's sleeping."

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE.......

A man was having so much sickness and he had gone to doctor after doctor.  None were able to find anything wrong with him. So finally he went to a doctor and the doctor asked him, "so you have good BM" and the man replied, "yes, every morning at 8:20 I have to go , no matter where I am....  at 8:20 I have to go to the bathroom.  well the doctor said he couldn't find anything wrong, but he would give him a shot of penicillin.  There were three little germs hiding in the man and when they heard the word , it scared them to death.  One little germ said, "I'm going up here and hide behind the heart."   The second little germ said, 'I'm going to hide behind the liver," and the third little germ said, " you all stick around if you want to,  I am taking that 8:20 out of here."

DOG TIRED.......

A few weeks ago an older tired-looking dog wandered into my yard.  I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.  He calmly came over to me.  I gave him a few pats on the head....he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall and curled up in the corner and fell asleep..  An hour later he went to the door and I let him out.  The next day he was back,  greeted me in my yard, walked inside and returned to the spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour.  This continued off and on for about two weeks Curious, I pinned a note to his collar,  "I would like to find out who is the owner of this wonderful dog is and to ask you if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap."
   The next day he arrived for his nap with a different note pinned to his collar.  "He lives in a home with 6 children....2 under the age of 3.  He's trying to catch up on his sleep.   Can I come with him tomorrow?"

MY FUTURE......

  What does the future hold?  Much of the past, for history has a way of repeating itself.  We handled the past and we can do even better in the future, for hindsight can give us little foresight, not specifically, but generally.
  The best thing about the future is that it comes upon us by degrees, a day at a time.  We can manage that much. 
  Whatever it holds, my future is mine;  be it fair weather, let me bask in the sun;  if it be storms, let me bend with the wind.
   The future belongs to those who can make adjustments and who are willing to work with God as partners for a better life.

BILTMORE HOUSE .....ASHEVILLE, NC....MY TRIP

In 1895 George Vanderbilt created Biltmore as an escape from everyday life for his family and friends.  Today his descendents invite you to enjoy the Vanderbilt legancy on this 8.000 acre estate.   It is amazing.  It's really hard to imagine how anyone in 1895 had that much money.  If you ever get a chance you should visit Biltmore.  You won't be sorry. It is decorated for Christmas now and one room had a live Fraizer fir Christmas tree that was 35 feet tall.  The ceiling in that room was 70 feet.   You can Google it to learn more. No cameras were allowed on the inside, but I snapped a few on the outside.   As always, click to enlarge picture.
