I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old person receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.
•   Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
•   Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor , Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam .
•   If you bump into an Old People on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.
•   Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
•   Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
•   Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.
•   It's the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.

We need them now more than ever.

Thank God for Old People
Pass this on to all of the "Old People" you know.
I was taught to respect my elders. It's just getting harder to find them.

Kyle told his father "Dad! I found the right girl. I'm in love!"

The dad said "That's great son! Who is it?"
Kyle said "It's Lisa, the girl next door".

The dad said "Oh, son. I wish you hadn't told me that. You can't be in love with Lisa. Don't tell your mom this, but Lisa is your sister". Kyle was devastated, but promised not to tell mom.

A few days later Kyle told his dad "I'm in love again! It's Angela, who lives on the end of the block!"
Dad said "Son, I'm sorry. But Angela is also your sister".

Kyle was furious. Immediately he ran and told his mom what dad had done. His mom said "Honey, you can date whoever you want. Lisa and Angela aren't your sisters. Because dad isn't your father.

Dunno. Took my Dad 20 odd years sitting in traffic to get his Acura there.
It didn't make it back. Sounded a bit like the Pfaff in the end.

Then, you can drive back.

A dealer drops off a tortoise shell box for repair.  The top is cracked and one side is tented up 1/8 in. above the other side.  I used a commercial heat gun and it softened the raised part enough that I could press it back in place. A few drops of white glue in the seam and left it to dry over night.  There were sterling silver letters inside the box.  I lay them out and can't figure what they say.  I know there is no "d" in hankerchief  and the first two letters look like "he"  - nothing makes sense !  Maybe it's the ladies initials ?  maybe words or letters missing. The letters "a-n-d" look like different text than the rest - maybe it's what's left from a partially missing word.   So I ask my wife what she thinks - of course she says handkerchief and lovingly reminds me how I wasted my time in school.  Anyway I filled the crack in with timbermate.  Didn't want to use anything too strong and non-reversible on an antique.  I'll color the filler with shellac + trans tint - adding earth-tone pigments to make the final semi opaque color while trying to copy the translucent shell  - final top coat with lacquer just along the filled line.  The repair won't prevent someone from removing the top - fusing it back together and relaying it flat. 




I'm sure the letters a-n-d were replaced at some point and although not done too  badly - no where as nice as the original silversmith workmanship. 
Thank goodness for the endangered protections today - the animal is safe ........ there are great faux plastic alternatives available if splices are needed in this kind of restoration.

Tom decided to get a face lift so he would look younger.

When he left the hospital, he stopped in at a convenience store to buy a cup of coffee.

He asked the cashier "How old do I look?" The cashier looked him over and said "I'd say about 35".
Beaming with pride, Tom told the cashier that he was actually 47.

Later, he went to Mcdonald's for lunch. Again, he asked the cashier how old she thought he was.
She replied "Oh, I'd say you're 29". Tom smiled, and said "Actually, I'm 47".

On his way home, he spotted an old lady at the bus stop. So he asked her the same question.
The lady said "Honey, I'm 87 and my vision is very poor. But if you let me feel your balls for 10 minutes, I'm sure that I can guess your age".

Since no one was around, Tom agreed. The old lady ran her hand down Tom's pants and felt of his balls. After 10 minutes, she said "You're 47".

Astonished, Tom said "Wow! That's exactly right. How did you know?"

The old lady said "I was in line behind you at Mcdonald's".

A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door.
The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!"
He slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife..
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" she asks. "No, I did not, it’s 3am in the morning and it’s bloody pouring rain out there!"
"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!
“God loves drunk people too you know.”
The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain.
He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"
"Yes," comes back the answer. "Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.
"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark. "Where are you?" asks the husband.
"Over here on the swing," replied the drunk.

Safe here in Gainesville. Moms in Tallahassee with nephew. Offered them to stay here but they were all stocked up and hunkered down. They had much wind and rain and a tree fell and crushed the neighbors roof. Neighbor is staying with mom. They have no power and could be days before it is hooked back up. Power trucks are heading that way. Mexico Beach and Pensacola Beach got slammed. Photos are just starting to appear. The storm grew fast and was just 1mph below cat 5 when it landed. Everyone was expecting a cat 3 and were surprised when we woke yesterday morning. I think it caught a lot of people off guard. Only good thing is it quickly moved inland. No deaths reported yet.
