856. It’s the Tortoise Life for Me

Don’t ask me for much right now.


I have recently returned from a two-week mission trip. I’m way too tired to post anything that takes research and thought regarding the problems of the world. Right now, it’s the tortoise life for me!galapagos turtle

  1. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.
  2. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.
  3. A tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.

And you tell me to exercise?? I don’t think so.

 I’m retired. Go around me.

God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

 Now that I’m older here’s what I’ve discovered:

  1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and all-bran.3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.4. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.5. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.6. If all is not lost, where is it?

    7. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.

    8. Some days, you’re the dog; some days you’re the hydrant.

    9. I wish the buck stopped here; I sure could use a few.

    10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.

    11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.

    12. It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.

    13. The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you’re in the bathroom.

    14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.

    15. When I’m finally holding all the cards, why does everyone want to play chess?

    16. It’s not hard to meet expenses . . . they’re everywhere.

    17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

    18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I’m hereafter.

  1. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
  2. Did I post this already?
