Sigh...can somebody get that camera away...

Bedtime tales...

Is this a familiar sight in your home as well?

That's Happy's way of staring at me when it's her bedtime.

Happy : I'm sleepy...

Mind you, this staring session can go on till I budge.

Yeah, some nights she just want me to tuck her in. She sure can be such a baby at times...

There For Me

It's funny how certain songs evoke certain feelings and memories in all of us. This is one song that does that to me. No, not the lovey dovey feeling but a wonderful memory of the good old days when life was more carefree *feeling wistful now* ...

Anyway, this is a great song from Sarah Brightman. Anyone a fan of The Phantom of The Opera? I am!!

Hail Prince of Wails!

Some of you would have heard me talked about my neighbour's baby who seems to cry at most of his waking hours. It must be real tough for them...and the rest of the neighbours.

Lately the baby seem to quiet down a little if the daddy brings him out for a walk or a drive. That's like a daily affair. A walk in the morning and a walk in the evening. In between I see some car rides too.

Hmm...I wonder whether should I kill 2 birds with 1 stone? *a lightbulb just lit* I could probably open my door and hand him the leash with my dog, eh? He could walk the baby and my dog at one go *evil grin*

Happy Slumber...

ZzzZZZZ ...

Happy was supposed to stay up with me to catch a late night on tv. But somehow she got too comfortable on my bed. Any potential for Slumberland commercial ad?

The Land Where Zebras Fear To Cross!

I know there's a lot of rants and raves on our fellow drivers when it comes to sighting of pedestrian crossing. They attract each other like opposite magnetic poles, no kidding! The sight of pedestrians crossing ahead somehow make their foot slam harder on the accelerator. Never mind that it's a zebra or tiger crossing zone or no zone. Given a chance, they'd probably have a go at the lollipop man too.

So what do poor pedestrians do? It's either sprint across the road, stop where you are and hold in your breath to make yourself slimmer (like that's going to help, really) or do a backtrack (provided there are no cars behind you).

In my case this morning, I was inching across the road and stopping 3 feet before the centre of the road to wait for a van to pass. The van was heading straight ahead but as he approaches me, he changed the course of his steer and swerved towards me, missing me by a breath. All in a blink of an eye. What was that all about?

So are we in for more pelican and puffin crossings as clearly zebra crossings are outdated and ineffective. Or how about ELEPHANT crossing? Nobody wants to cross an elephant for sure, especially with their jumbo memory ha ha ha...

Happy Crossing!!!

How To Stay Young

More from George Carlin:

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay "them."

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER : Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!

Age. Aging. Aged.

George Carlin's Views on Aging

Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions.

"How old are you?" "I'm four and a half!" You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key.

You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.

"How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16!" You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life. You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're Just a sour-dumpling. What's wrong? What's changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.

But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.

You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT ednesday!

You get into your 80's and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; "I Was JUST 92."

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. "I 'm 100 and a half!"

May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!
