Frozen Crabs & the Blonde Flight Attendant

Friday, March 07, 2014

I enjoyed this one

A lawyer boarded an airplane in New Orleans with a box of frozen crabs and
asked a blonde flight attendant to take care of them for him.
She took the box and promised to put it in the crew's refrigerator. He
advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying
frozen, mentioning in a very haughty manner that he was a lawyer, and
proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out.
Needless to say, she was annoyed by his behavior.
Shortly before landing in New York , she used the intercom to announce to
the entire cabin, "Would the gentleman who gave me the crabs in New Orleans ,
please raise your hand?"
Not one hand went up ... so she took the crabs home and ate them.

Two lessons here:

1. Lawyers aren't as smart as they think they are.
2. Blondes aren't as dumb as most folks think

I thought this is too good not to pass on


What Love means to a 4-8 year old...

Slow down for three minutes to read this.

It is worth it.

Touching words from the mouth of babes..

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds ,

'What does love mean?'

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined


See what you think:


'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore.. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.'

Rebecca- age 8


'When someone loves you , the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.'

Billy - age 4

'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.'

Karl - age 5


'Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries
without making them give you any of theirs.'

Chrissy - age 6


'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.'

Terri -
age 4


'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him , to make sure the taste is OK.'

Danny - age 7

'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing , you
still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that.
They look gross when they kiss.'

Emily - age 8


'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents
and listen.'

Bobby - age 7
(Wow!)


'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate. '

Nikka - age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)


'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.'

Noelle
- age 7

'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still
friends even after they know each other so well.'

Tommy - age 6


'During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the
people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.
He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.'

Cindy - age 8


'My mommy loves me more than anybody
You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.'

Clare - age 6


'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'

Elaine-age 5


'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.'

Chris - age 7


'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.'

Mary Ann - age 4


'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes
and has to go out and buy new ones.'

Lauren - age 4


'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image)

Karen - age 7


'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think
it's gross..'

Mark - age 6

'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it.
But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.'


Jessica - age 8


And the final one


The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an
elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry , the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard , climbed onto his lap , and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor , the little boy said ,


'Nothing , I just helped him cry'




When there is nothing left but God , that is when you find out that God is all
you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this.


Heavenly Father , please bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of Your peace , prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You.
Amen .

Been down to Adelaide for an appointment with the Nephrologist, I haven't seen him since before the operation.

When he called my name, he told me we have a lot to talk about, then preceded to ask if I had operation, answer was 'yes". Asked how this went so I told him.

My blood results are better than before I had op. He sat there looking a these blood tests and shaking his head. He told me 3 times that I am an amazing woman to not be on dialysis. He also said all he can say is "wow"

Kept on going back to blood tests and still shaking his head LOL. He then told me he is going to have a drink to my health tonight, (Lucky him).

He did say that my kidney will fail at some time but also said he will not put a time frame on this because he just does not know. Told me to keep on doing whatever I am doing.

I first had a time frame of 5 years over 25 years ago.

As I was leaving he told me he is happy I proved him wrong and my answer was " I am proud that I proved you wrong and I am going to keep doing it"

I have been concerned about my blood pressure as It had gone up after the op but when he took it today it has come down to nearly where it was before.

I am doing a happy dance. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Goals are coming along well.

hi everyone, I am happy I am taking back my life. I wonder why I let my son take over my life again, probably because he had lots of problems when he came back here and wasn't in a good place. Stupid reason though.

I went back to exercises again this week and I am going to go again on Thursday. I know I can do this 2 days per week now.

Did 60 minutes of easier exercises today but really wasn't happy with that so I got on my exercise bike for 10 minutes and felt really good that I pushed it a bit further. First time I rode this since probably last September.

Procrastination at it best as I look at each night and think I should do that but don't. Well it is done.

Goals
1. ride exercise bike 3 times per week
2 exercise class 2 x per week.
3. do more cardio.

Had a doctor's appointment yesterday and my blood results have improved again and the doctor commented on how well I look. Made me feel really proud of myself for him to comment on that. I must be doing something right.

    Thats WONDERFUL - and yes it always feels good when someone notices your body changes emoticon

And I am VERY proud of you for getting your exercise as a priority.

A very simple thing I read the other day was "Make exercise non negotiable".

I find just planting that thought in my head at the beginning of the day means I am less likely to skip my planned exercise for the day.

I have been suffering from Achilles Tendinitis going on almost a year now which makes walking a little painful but once the doctor told me exercise would help I really have noticed an improvement.

Even old dogs like us can still help our bodies to improve LOL
