Box Day

Lake Shelbyville

Yesterday was Box Day. Why I have no idea, but the cats deemed it so.

In the pic on the right, I'm getting ready to send books to the library. Maybe, I should send Faux Paw along as the library cat...

Today is the bro's birthday. Happy Birthday, Bro. May it be wondrous.

Cool Facts About the Human Body

Scientists say the more you dream the higher your IQ. (Sigh. I dream so little.)

The largest cell in the human body is the female egg and the smallest is the male sperm.

You use 200 muscles to take one step.

The average woman is five inches shorter than the average man. (Hmm. I'm out of that category too.)

Your big toes have two bones each while the rest have three.

A pair of feet contain 250,000 sweat glands.

A full bladder is roughly the size of a soft ball.

The human brain cell can hold five times as much information as an encyclopedia. (If mine does, its like a hard drive, when it gets too full it deletes itself.)

It takes food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.

The average human dreams last two to three seconds. (I don't buy this one. It takes longer than that to wake me up from a bad one.)

Men without hair on their chest are more likely to get cirrhosis of the liver than men with hair. (Huh?)

At the moment of conception you spent about half an hour as a single cell.

There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.
(Lots of information on feet here.)

Your body gives off enough heat in thirty minutes to bring half a gallon of water to a boil. (I think males have a better shot at the temperature thing.)

The enamel on your teeth is the hardest substance in your body.

Your teeth start growing six months before you are born.

Your thumb is the same length as your nose.

Little Ms. Petunia Possum got adopted last night to a great family whose previous cats lived to be seventeen and eighteen years old.

And that's when the fight started

One year, a husband decided to buy his mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift.The next year, he didn't buy her a gift.When she asked him why, he replied, "Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"

And that's when the fight started.

My wife walked into the den & asked "What's on theTV?"
I replied "Dust".

And that's when the fight started.

A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror. She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, "I feel horrible;I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment."

The husband replies, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."

And that's when the fight started.

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 200 in about 3 seconds." I bought her a scale.

And that's when the fight started.

I asked my wife, "Where do you want to go for our anniversary?"It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation..
"Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said.
So I suggested, "How about the kitchen?"

And that's when the fight started.

My wife and I are watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed. I turned to her and said, "Do you want to have sex?"" No," she answered.I then said, "Is that your final answer?"She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying"Yes.."So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."

And that's when the fight started.

When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive. So, I took her to a gas station.

And that's when the fight started.

I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Miller Light for $14.95. Â Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream for $7.95. I told her the beer would make her look better at night than the cold cream.

And that's when the fight started.

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.My wife asked, "Do you know her?"

"Yes," I sighed, "She's my old girlfriend. Iunderstand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since.."
“My God!" says my wife. "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"

And that's when the fight started.....

In Memory

For those we have loved and unexpectedly lost, may our loved ones be happy and at peace as they begin the next cycle of their life, carrying their love forward with them.

For those left behind, may your pain be softened by warm memories. And when you have healed may you move forward and live your life to the fullest, knowing someday you'll be reunited.

Dedicated to Chris and Karen

Thoughts for Friday

Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever.

Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up life we could just press the control alt delete and start over.

Don't argue with an idiot. People watching may not be able to tell the difference.

When I was young we used to go skinny dipping, now we just chunky dunk.

How come we choose from only two people to run for president and over fifty for Miss America.

Marriage changes passion. Suddenly you're in bed with a relative.

Serenity and Cats

It is more important to know where you are going than to get there quickly. -- Mabel Newcomber

After scolding one's cat, one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word. And has filed it away for reference. - Charlotte Gray
