The wedding was a success!

I am happy to report that everything went well with my friends wedding. Everyone was happy and smiling! The weather in Palm Springs was 119 degrees! I thought I would faint. I do not know how people can live comfortably in such weather. After a while, you kind of get to where it really does not bother you. Needless to say, I drank a lot of water. The country club did a fantastic job with the catering. The music was getting me to dance and be silly! I was very happy for my friend Pam. I have known her since high school. Her husband Anthony was very nice. It was the first time meeting him. 🙂

Marriage takes a commitment. It takes humor. It takes caring and trust. You should NEVER take your spouse for granted. I wish Pam and Anthony all the best!

Oh, my dress worked out perfectly. The challenge was the wind. My dress was flying all over the place!

Have a great week.

Down to the wire…..

No, I am not stressed out. I am calm. I just have a lot of little errands to run before my friend gets married on June 8th. I am really excited for her. She is also getting little things done each day. All of this running around has made me realize a few things. Life is what you make it. You can make your daily chores seem terrible, or you can dance when you are doing them! I am sure the people around you do not care. You might even get them to smile! I have a tendency to dance in public. I seem to do a lot better when I hear the music instead of the ugliness that is going on around me. Call it denial if you want. I call it mental health management. Do you have a way to make yourself get calm about your daily chores? I would be real interested in hearing about them. Until the wedding, I will be blogging off and on. I hope you are all well and happy. I hope you are enjoying your free time and getting to do some of those things you have always wanted to do, but do not seem to have the time to do them. (I wanted to see how long I could make that last sentence! LOL)

During their silver anniversary, a wife reminds her husband “Do you remember when you proposed to me? I was so overwhelmed that I didn’t talk for an hour.” The husband replies “Yes, honey, that was the happiest hour of my life.

A couple were celebrating their Golden Wedding anniversary. Their domestic tranquility had long been the talk of the town. A local newspaper reporter was inquiring as to the secret of the long and happy marriage. ‘Well, it dates back to our honeymoon,’ explained the husband. ‘We visited the Grand Canyon and took at trip down to the bottom of the canyon by pack mule. We hadn’t gone too far when my wife’s mule stumbled. My wife quietly said, “That’s once.” We proceeded a little further when the mule stumbled again. Once more my wife quietly said, “That’s twice.” We hadn’t gone half a mile when the mule stumbled a third time. My wife took a pistol out of her pocket and shot the mule. ‘I started to protest over her treatment of the mule when she looked at me and quietly said, “That’s once.”

Jamie asks his wife, Julie, what she wants to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. “Would you like a new mink coat?” he asks. “Not really,” says Julie. “Well how about a new Mercedes sports car?” says Jamie. “No,” she responds. “What about a new vacation home in the country?” he suggests. She again rejects his offer with a “No thanks.” “Well what would you like for your anniversary?” Jamie asks. “Jamie, I’d like a divorce,” answers Julie. “Sorry, I wasn’t planning to spend that much,” says Jamie.

Funny…Laugh time…Smile……

A dietitian was once addressing a large audience in Chicago.
“The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago.
Red meat is awful. Soft drinks erode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. Vegetables can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.
But, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and most all of us have, or will, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?”
A 75-year-old man in the front row stood up and said, “Wedding cake.”

Silly Italian Jokes….

Sorry guys, I couldn’t resist posting thse. They are some jokes I heard growing up in New York. Enjoy!

Sophie just got married, and being a traditional Italian was still a virgin. On her wedding night, staying at her mother’s house, she was nervous. But mother reassured her.
“Don’t worry, Sophie. Luca’s a good man. Go upstairs, and he’ll take care of you.”
So up she went. When she got upstairs, Luca took off his shirt and exposed his hairy chest. Sophie ran downstairs to her mother and says, “Mama, Mama, Luca’s got a big hairy chest.”
“Don’t worry, Sophie”, says the mother, “All good men have hairy chests. Go upstairs. He’ll take good care of you.”
So, up she went again. When she got up in the bedroom, Luca took off his pants exposing his hairy legs. Again Sophie ran downstairs to her mother. “Mama, Mama, Luca took off his pants, and he’s got hairy legs!”
“Don’t worry. All good men have hairy legs. Luca’s a good man. Go upstairs, and he’ll take good care of you.”
So, up she went again. When she got up there, Luca took off his socks, and on his left foot he was missing three toes. When Sophie saw this, she ran downstairs.
“Mama, Mama, Luca’s got a foot and a half!”
“Stay here and stir the pasta”, says the mother. “This is a job for Mama!”
