Richard, that brought to mine a poem I found written in my grandfather's farm account book.
My grandfather appears in pictures as a skinny man, but he died on Thanksgiving day of a heart attack at age 68. My grandmother lived to be 87. He died long before I was born, but at least from this poem I know he had a sense of humor:

"When Eve discovered the apples, she at once made a raid on the tree. She gave one-fourth of the apples to Adam, while she kept the other three. So now in providing a living, in the life which is but a span, we count on the woman as eating three times as much as the man."

I don't know whether he wrote it himself or it was a saying going around at the time. I know, it makes the woman look bad, but in my grandmother's family it was true. I believe at least one of her sisters had diabetes. It was said that at Thanksgiving and Christimas, they baked one turkey for that sister, and another turkey for the rest of the family. Sad, I know, and, unfortunately, I take after them, except they were tall and I am short like my mother's side.

Talking

Everyone has a great sense of humor. You have all made me laugh. I will be coming to the Lounge a lot.
Morning: I eat oatmeal, non fat milk and fruit. Then I see what my husband and son can eat. Temptation foods!! Should I be an Angel or a Devil? Sometimes, I am an Angel and sometimes I am a Devil.

Lunch: I eat a sandwich and water. The refrigerator is full of goodies that are bad to eat. Sometimes I give in and sometimes I do not.

Dinner: I eat different types of food and stick to my diet.
Dessert: The Killer!! I eat nonfat yogurt with a tablespoon of preserves. I was good until I put my plate in the sink. I was in that dangerous place, the kitchen,by the "frig." I usually give in to the killer foods!! Slap my wrist!! Shame on me.

Cupcakes

A young man was visiting his brother and sister-in-law for Christmas dinner. As he arrived at their house he found his young nephew, Mikey, helping them bake some cupcakes.

After they were done, his sister-in-law allowed Mikey to put the icing on. When the boy had finished, he brought them to the table.

"The cupcakes look delicious, Mike." his uncle said. He took a bite and said, "Mikey these are so good."

As he finished cupcake and took another, he again complimented his little nephew. "The cupcakes look beautiful, Mikey," his uncle said. "How did you get the icing so neat?"

His nephew replied, "It was easy. I just licked them."

The uncle turned pale. He pointed to the plate of cupcakes. "You licked all of these?"

Mikey replied, "Well no. After a while my tongue got tired, and I got the dog to help."

Comment:

Those dogs weren't mine. Mine wouldn't stop with licking. The other day my husband was feeding the dobe. He took off his watch and dropped it. Goodbye watch. I came out to catch him beating the dog - watch still wouldn't come up. He's tied up now - the dobe, I mean. This should be interesting -

I won't even tell you about the cell phone. My husband has a new one now.

Old lady - I'm back! Lost 40 pounds with my color diet and the doctor wanted my input for her diabetic patients. Seems she doesn't consider me diabetic any more because my tests were great - 98 for the fasting glucose and 5.7 for that AC1 thingie. I am still testing, however, because the first thing I know I'll be falling off the wagon.

From one Old Lady to another Old Lady, I loved it. I can imagine the dog licking the cupcakes, so real.

When my children were growing up, I made them eat everything on their plate. They did not tell me until they were grown up that they were giving the dog the food. I never thought about why the dog always sat underneath the table during dinner.

There have been a coulpe of times that I left the table in the middle of a meal. I came back and a cat was eating from my plate. If I tossed the whole plate of food in the garbage I would not have had the great meal I wanted. So I ate the meal. Would some of you have done that too?

Actually I wanted to toss the cat in the garbage, but we are never unkind to our cats. They rarely cause any trouble.
