Thanks Charlie





Life Cycle


Growing up is a weird notion to wrap your mind around. As you go through life, your perspectives on almost everything will change. How you define success will change as well. Things that you thought were important at the age of 35 will be useless when you're 65. You may not realize it now, but everything will shift.



At age 4 success is not peeing in your pants.



At age 12 success is having friends.




At age 16 success is having a drivers license.



At age 20 success is having sex.




At age 35 success is having money.





At age 50 success is having money.




At age 60 success is having sex.




At age 70 success is having a drivers license.




At age 75 success is having friends.




At age 80 success is not peeing in your pants.



It all comes full circle, whether you like it or not.

Share this hilarious truth about life with others.



May you always have

Love to Share,

Health to Spare, and

Friends who Care..

FW: 12 pounds of Bananas



A little old lady is sitting in the violin section, fumbling for notes in a difficult key signature. After a few minutes the conductor becomes so enraged that he hits her on the head with his music stand, and the poor old dear dies instantly. Not surprisingly, he is convicted and put on death row. Just before he is to be electrocuted, his last request is for 12 pounds of bananas, which he devours. They strap him into the chair, flip the switch, and he just sits there, smiling. According to tradition, this is considered a reprieve from God and he is freed.
Somehow he gets his old job back, and he is happily conducting the orchestra when the trumpet player goes sharp. Enraged, he lunges out with his baton, skewering the offender's neck and killing him. Again, he is convicted and sent to death row. He again eats the 12 pounds of bananas, and lo and behold, the electricity does not harm him. This time the executioner cleans the contacts, makes him sit in a bucket of water; he tries everything - but the conductor won't die. So again, he is set free.
Amazingly he regains his job. It takes him 1 day to lose his temper and beat to death a trombonist. He returns to death row, eats the bananas, and survives the electrocution. At this point, the executioner can take no more - his professional pride has been hurt.
Before setting our friend free again, he asks him his secret, "What is it with the bananas?"
"Oh, the bananas have nothing to do with it," replies our friend. "I'm just a bad conductor."

On a personal note:: I was in Toledo visiting an old friend Tom K. He has been battling colorectal cancer for about three years and is having a “rough” time of it. Pleas keep Tom K. in your prayers. Also, when I got back to Lancaster my good friend Jim G. was rushed to the emergency room.  Please keep Jim G. in your prayers. As I have often said.”All we have is today let’s make the best of it.”… Jim G. came through emergency stomach surgery and is doing as well as can be expected at this time… Prayers Work…and so do surgeons…

Art and Money::: “Money. It is a simple fact of everyday life, as well as, a fundamental principal of our social, political, and economic order. It is a medium of exchange, an index and store of value, and a universal equivalent into which most anything can dissolve. It connects, defines, and divides nations. It is pocket change and dead presidents. It is the key to happiness and the root of all evil. It has no intrinsic value apart from what we’ve given it. Money is an idea, a social contract, and one that depends on frequently-tested collective emotional states like trust, faith, and confidence.” Read More
