OK... nuff funnin fer now.... on t'better things....Perlow...

Well Sir....Missie "Buster"...AKA Vicki frum out Kansas way sent this here E-mail to me and I thought it held some country folk (and City folk also I guess) wisdom that needed to be shared.....

Living on Earth is expensive,
but it does include a free trip around the sun every year.

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on.

Birthdays are good for you; the more you have, the longer you live.

Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?

If Wal-Mart is lowering prices every day, how come nothing is free yet?

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Working for God on earth does not pay much,
but His Retirement plan is out of this world.

Now fer some food! I think that by now most a y'all be a know'n that if'n I wanted to...I could publish up a whole bunch of "Gormay" recipee's...and I did do that in the beginnin of this blog...but I was immedjiately contacted by several folks who said "Hey...we ain't no gormets...all we want is simple..plain...everyday recipee's that most folks can be a makin."

So I got the message right frum the get go...and so fer...I've pretty much stuck t'my wurd...and today is no ception.....
