L - Loving Life Laced with Laughter
Posted On 10/09/2016 16:56:44 by yourchoice

When was the last time that you had a real good, noisy “belly” laugh? For the ladies, that may be a bit of a stretch, so call it something else. Call it uncontrolled laughter, that keeps sneaking back to your head, and the it starts all over again. We had a bunch of those in May of this year, at the 55th Class Reunion of my nursing class.

I love to have fun, help put a smile on someone’s face, and at times, just be silly! There are a few things on my page where my “personality” has leaked out. But I must ask, “Who thinks that the comics of today are better than “the good old days”? There were comics in our much younger days who didn’t have to say anything, and we would laugh. Their facial expressions were priceless. My list includes Tim Conway, Red Skelton, Lucille Ball, Bob Hope, and Lily Tomlin. I remember standing with school friends at the window of the local lumber yard to watch Lucy on the TV set up in the window (we never had a TV in our home), and even without sound, we were often in hysterics. After I was married, there were programs that my husband and I rarely missed; Carol Burnett Show, Ed Sullivan Show, and the now “politically incorrect” All In The Family, were just a few. Now, it seems almost manditory to include ‘four-letter’ words (aka ‘bathroom words’) to be considered funny. Give me a break!

I just celebrated my 76th year on this planet. To me, that doesn’t seem like such a long time; time goes so quickly. It’s our 53+ year old son and our granddaughter who is 22 that reminds me that I’m still “not over the Hill” but getting close to it. My dear mother passed away in her 65th year and I thought she was an old lady! Now, what does that make me? No need to send me your answer!!!!

I recently read a couple of books by Phil Callaway, who grew up in the town where I had my first job as a registered nurse. I heard him speak at a special event at the church we attended, and I loved his sense of humour. Even though he did plant some wonderful thoughts in his presentation, he was able to do it in such a way, that made it easy to remember for a long time. The first book I read was, “Who Put The Skunk In The Trunk? Learning to Laugh When Life Stinks”. I also read the revised version, entitled “Who Put My Life on Fast-Forward?” How To Slow Down & Start Living Again. They are all available on Amazon, if you are interested. His books are filled with “Wrinkle Busters”, and if any of my readers have a few wrinkles, I close with several samples...

Classified ad:

“An unexpected vacancy for a knife-thrower’s assistant:
Rehersals start immediately.”
..........

Newspaper ad: “Extremely independent male, 17 years old,
Needs to rent room. Call his mother as ....”
..........

Advertisement: “Try our cough syrup,
You will never get any better.”
..........

Child to mother after school,
“Our new teacher taught us all about fossils.
Before she came to class, I didn’t know what a fossil looked like.”

So pleased to read your response, and I certainly agree that laughter is so important to life. I'm glad to hear that you are adjusting to your new location, and keeping well occupied.

Did the Power Ball Jackpot arrive at your address? Will celebrate with you when it arrives!!!!!!!!       Mona
