I happened to overhear a young woman make a remark to her girlfriend about a rather matronly but pretty older woman. Incensed, I told the young girl that the older woman was a knockout back in the day and that she should hope she looks that good when she got older.
The young woman seemed a bit taken aback by my remark. I asked her if she had seen the changes that Britney Spears has gone through over the last six or seven years. She muttered that Britney had gained a lot of weight. I told her that it happens to most people as they aged. I said that sooner or later, someone might make the same remark about you.
She seemed to get my drift and told me that she was only joking. I told her that life is like playing on a baseball team. You start in the minor league, move up to the major league and have a stretch as a success. As time goes by, they start moving you to lesser positions, then you go to the bench for a few more years. After that, you hopefully retire with a pension.
The bottom line? Be kind and treat people like you would want to be treated. Enjoy each day and live it like it was your last. One day, it will be.....
Happy Ninetieth Birthday to actress Betty White!

A virile, middle aged Italian gentlemen named Guido was relaxing at his favorite bar in Rome when he managed to attract a spectacular young blonde woman. Things progressed to the point where he led her back to his apartment and, after some small talk, they retired to his bedroom where he rattled her senseless. After a pleasant interlude he asked with a smile, "So, you finish?" She paused for a second, frowned, and replied, "No."
Surprised, Guido reached for her and the rattling resumed. This time she thrashed about wildly and there were screams of passion. The sex finally ends and, again, Guido smiles and asks, "You finish?" Again, after a short pause, she returns his smile, cuddles closer to him and softly says, "No."
Stunned, but damned if he was going to leave this woman unsatisfied, Guido reaches for the woman yet again. Using the last of his strength, he barely manages it, but they end together screaming, bucking, clawing and ripping the bed sheets. Exhausted, Guido falls onto his back, gasping.
Barely able to turn his head, he looks into her eyes, smiles proudly and asked again, "You finish?" Barely able to speak, the beautiful blonde whispers in his ear, "No, I'm Norwegian."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pals Laurie and Skip for their contributions to today's stories.
A man and his wife were working in their garden one day and the man looks over at his wife and says, "Your ass is getting really big, I mean really big. I bet your ass is bigger than the barbecue." With that he proceeded to get a measuring tape and measure the grill and then went over to where his wife was working and measured his wife's bottom. He said, "Yes, I was right, your ass is two inches wider than the barbecue!"
The woman chose to ignore her husband. Later that night in bed, the husband is feeling a little frisky. He makes some advances towards his wife who completely brushes him off. The man says, "What's wrong?" She answers, "Do you really think I'm going to fire up this big-ass grill for one little weenie?"
A blonde who was tired of all the blonde jokes going around and decided to dye her hair brown. She then went for a drive in the country and came upon a shepherd herding his sheep across the road. She asked, "Hey, shepherd, if I guess how many sheep there are here, can I keep one?"The shepherd looked puzzled but agreed.
Out of the blue, she blurts out "57!" He was stunned but kept his word and allowed her to pick out a sheep. She picked out the cutest one. He looked at her and said, "If I guess what color your hair really is, can I have my dog back?"
A farmer went to town to see a movie. The ticket agent asked, "Sir, what’s that under your arm?" The old farmer said, "That’s my pet rooster Chucky, wherever I go, Chucky goes." The ticket agent said, "We don’t allow animals in the theater."
The irritated old farmer went around the corner and stuffed the bird down his pants. He returned to the booth, bought a ticket and entered the theater. He sat down next to two old widows named Mildred and Marge.
The movie started and the rooster began to squirm. The old farmer unzipped his pants so Chucky could stick his head out and watch the movie.
Mildred whispered, "Marge, I think this guy next to me is a pervert." Marge replied, "What makes you think that?" Mildred whispered, "He unzipped his pants and is exposing himself."
Marge said, "Well, don’t worry about it, At our age we’ve seen them all." Mildred said, "Yeah, but this one is eating my popcorn."
