I guess it's kinda like Mick Dundee said in "Crocodile Dundee":

"New York must be a really friendly place. Imagine all those people wanting to live together..."

I found this note on my Wife's cardmaking desk:

MARRIAGE IS LIKE A DECK OF CARDS.
IN THE BEGINNING ALL YOU NEED IS TWO HEARTS AND A DIAMOND. BY THE END, YOU WISH YOU HAD A
CLUB AND A SPADE.

Perhaps I'm spending too much time in the train room, or on the computer.

Well said! My sentiments exactly.

In 2005, an 83 year-old World War II pilot is surprised to see 16mm footage of his 1944 Spitfire crash for the first time.

SPITFIRE 944 was put on YouTube as part of the Sundance Film Festival Memorial Day observance through from May 22 through June 5, 2013

Thanks for the video. What a treasure that must be to the gentleman. I've met a few of those old boys that flew in WW II,or fought in it, and they're a great bunch. They all act like anyone could have done it. But they are true heroes and they're the ones who are here to tell about it. BTW it would have been interesting no matter which side the pilot had been on. BILL

In parochial school students are taught that lying is a sin.
However, instructors also advised that using a bit of imagination was
OK to express the truth differently without lying.

Below is a perfect example of those teachings:

Getting a Hairdryer Through Customs

An attractive young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest
beside her,

"Father, may I ask a favor?"

"Of course child. What may I do for you?"

"Well, I bought my mother an expensive hair dryer for her birthday. It
is unopened but well over the Customs limits and I'm afraid they'll
confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through customs for
me? Hide it under your robes perhaps?"

"I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you, I will not lie."

"With your honest face, Father, no one will question you."

When they got to Customs, she let the priest go first.

The official asked, "Father, do you have anything to declare?"

"From the top of my head down to my waist I have nothing to declare."

The official thought this answer strange, so asked, "And what do you
have to declare from your waist to the floor?"

"I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman,
but which is, to date, unused."

Roaring with laughter the official said, "Go ahead, Father. Next
please!"


As you think, so will you be.
