Where the Heck Have I Been!

Going crazy trying to keep up with all my family problems!
If you haven't tried this. Just try it.
It is from an orthopedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't. It's pre-programmed in your brain!
1. While sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction!
I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so. Send it to your buddies to frustrate them too.
Darn cool huh!!

Gentle Thoughts for Today and any day)-

 Birds of a feather flock together . . . ..and then shit on your car .

A penny saved is a government oversight.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement .

He who hesitates is probably right.

Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are  XL.'

If you think there is good in everybody, you
Haven't met everybody  

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it.  For example I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs...'

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way.  I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young  Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft.  Today, it's called golf.

Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth . . ... .. . . . 


  1. Ha! That's a cool little trick Mary! No matter how hard I tried, I could do the two different separately. Thanks for the giggle.

  2. Ahhh! I c-a-n't f-o-r-c-e my foot to go the other way! I give up. *sigh* But thank you for the giggles while reading your "delightful" list. Your posts always brighten my day.

  3. Nope it doesn't change direction if you draw the six starting from the inside and going up. LOL

  4. Hi Mary,
    Must try that little trick. I typed medical reports for an Orthopaedic surgeon for many years, never came acrros that though. I'll give it a try.



  5. I love those comments about age. As to the picture - when did I sit for that one?

  6. MARY--I have done the hand foot trick. Someone sent it as a forward some time ago, and I sent it to my husband--he's on the other side of the house--and I went over there to watch him try. I laughed so hard I nearly...well, you know.And, Mary, I love you Gentle thoughts for the Day. All so true, so very,very true. Celia

  7. Thanks everyone, love you too Celia!
    I love it when I make any of you feel happy!

  8. The hand foot trick had me chuckling at my desk. Thanks for sharing. Loved the quotes, too.

  9. Love you Mary - you always make me smile! I tried the trick and I couldn't co-oirdinate my hand and foot either! The thoughts are hilarious - and true - and so is the picture!
