Bits & Pieces -- 11-25-10
We have to admit we are getting older. With it comes little observations, like people say you look great and then add for your age!
The five pounds you wanted to lose is now 15 and chances are you will lose your car keys before you lose the 15 pounds!
You use more four letter words like....What? When?
What used to be freckles are now liver spots!
Notice that your blouses are now sleeveless and with a plunging neckline!
You miss the days when everything worked with an "On" and "Off" switch.
Going out is good, but coming home is better!
But the best thing about old age is the old songs, old movie stars and old friends!
I want to share a little story I got from my email this morning called "Grandma's Pie".
Grandma made such beautiful pies. One day, I asked her, "How do you get such beautiful pies with the crimps around the edges so even?" It's a family secret was her reply, so promise not to tell. "I roll out the dough, then cut a bottom layer and carefully put it in the pie plate. Then I slowly pour in the filling, making sure it's not too full. Next I cut a top layer and put it over the filling. Finally, I take out my teeth and just run them around the edge of the pie crust and they make the nicest even impressions you ever did see."
Make sure to find out who made the pies for your Thanksgiving dinner!
I wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
