Some truths...


1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.

2) One reason to smile is that every seven minutes of every day, someone in an aerobics class pulls a hamstring.

3) The best way to keep kids at home is to make a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of their tires.

4) Families are like fudge . . . mostly sweet, with a few nuts.

5) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.

6) My mind not only wanders; sometimes it leaves completely.

7) If you can remain calm, you just don't have all the facts.


  1. Hmmm ...

    Maybe no.1 causes no.6 ..

  2. Jokes, wisdom...exactly.
    Nice post, put a smile on my face.

  3. and now, a word from The Man on the Streets..."boneman, are y'all there?"

    "Yes, berry. Here I am, though not all would say I'm ALL here"

    "...what? Are y'nuts?"

    "Well, yes....but you see, Ive had a screw loose. However it's good not to tighten them too much, else they'll strip"

    "boneman, it sounds more like you're a few bricks shy of a load..."

    "Yes I am, berry. That's because I only need enough to build a BBQ pit."

    "sounds like the lights are on, but, no one is at home...."

    "It's true. I leave the lights burning so folks who visit while I'm gone can see their way to the porch."

    "yes, well....your elevator doesn't seem to go to the top floor..."

    "Absolutely not! That walk up the last couple of flights keeps me fit and trim!"

    ".....(inaudible mumbling)...."

    "are you still there, berry?"

    "Yes...well. You're just not playing with a full deck, are you, boneman?"

    "Again, true! I love euchre but, I never really know what to do with all the other cards"

    " this guy kiddin' me? Boneman, you're not the sharpest tool in the box, are you?"

    "Heck no, berry! But then again, who would want a sharp hammer?"

    "......ok, let's go to commercial"

    (reckon that puts me in the fudge family, eh?)
