This shared by Ike... LOL, this can't happen to us!

     Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were playing golf
     one fine March day. One remarked to the other, 'Windy,
     isn't it?' 'No,' the second man replied,
     'it's Thursday.' And the third man chimed in,
     'So am I. Let's have a beer.'

Yesterday I was SUPER lazy. Didn't want to do ANYTHING! So, I went through a box of address and phone books sister Betty had sent me that were Mom and Dad's. Salvaged some things, others went in the trash. This is what I saved:

This was inside the Forest Lawn card....

Then I went through a box of stuff Brian brought up from the barn some time ago. (All was in my bedroom. Check the bottom of the blog to see what day this is.. I got a head start!) This box was a Christmas gift box from Bullocks in downtown LA. The sticker in the lid says it was from December 1963 and the sales clerk and it was a charge.

In the box were my report cards, letters to Mom and Dad from me, dance studio programs, Jobs Daughter programs, some pictures, pay stubs (a whopping $1.50 and hour jobs), and tax records.  I had a blast going through all this. Found my Driver's Training grade..... Whoot whoot... A in Driver's Training!! Mr. Kirk was a super nice guy/teacher!

Here are some hilarious business names:

Clean Up Your Room Day

Clean Up Your Room Day is a day parents eagerly await........... and kids dread!
If you've got kids, it is very possible that their rooms are a vast wasteland, completely filled with "good stuff". "Messy" is too kind of an adjective to describe the conditions. Its impossible to walk through the room. Every dresser and shelf (and under the bed), is packed with everything imaginable. Dust has been piling up as long as your child has been around. Comfy, cozy, and quite livable to the child, its an everyday source of frustration for the "folks".
To mom and dad's delight, and every child's chagrin, Clean Up Your Room Day arrives every May 10th. Get out the shovels. Call in an industrial sized dumpster. Its time for everyone to clean your rooms!
Note to Kids: Clean Up Your Room Day also applies to your parents. You may want to inspect to assure that mom and dad practice what they preach!
