Wisdom from Grandpa

- Whether a man winds up with a nest egg, or a goose egg, depends a lot on the kind of chick he marries.

- Trouble in marriage often starts when a man gets so busy earnin’ his salt, that he forgets his sugar.
- Too many couples marry for better, or for worse, but not for good.
- When a man marries a woman, they become one; but the trouble starts when they try to decide which one.
- If a man has enough horse sense to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she will never turn into an old nag.
- On anniversaries, the wise husband always forgets the past – but never the present.
- A foolish husband says to his wife, “Honey, you stick to the washin’, ironin’, cookin’, and scrubbin’. No wife of mine is gonna work.”
- The bonds of matrimony are a good investment, only when the interest is kept up.
- Many girls like to marry a military man – he can cook, sew, and make beds, and is in good health, and he’s already used to taking orders.
- Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age, and start bragging about it.
- The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
- Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know “why” I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.
- How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
- When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, remember about Algebra.
- I don’t know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
- One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.
- Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
- Old age is when former classmates are so gray and wrinkled and bald, they don’t recognize you.
- If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when you are old.

Blast from the Past 



Todays Quote
Birthday Girl
Paula Zahn

I'm a mother, I'm a journalist, I'm an American; I'm all of those things, and it really complicates your job when you have all these things come into play.
Paula Zahn

My challenge was even greater as a journalist, because this was happening in my own backyard.
Paula Zahn

We're just delighted that management has come around to my way of thinking.
