Blog description: When is it just out there to see who is "in to you" and who is not?
Maybe the question is when do you say "I"m not into you"? then move on?
I'm not sure if it's me or them, but so many just "fade into the woodwork".
My question is How do you stop seeing someone without fading into the woodwork?
What are some of the things that can be said?
Have we not evolved enough to deal with someone else not being into us?
What have you to say?

I take these goof proof steps each new year.
1] I write the year on about 20 checks.
2] I write all the birthdays on my new calender
3] I used to buy all the birthday cards I needed for a few months, however I got lazy. I would attach them to the calender ( in a plastic zip lock stapled to the calender)
Anyone else have any year beginning hints?
After serious & cautious consideration.....your
contract of friendship has been renewed for the New
It was a very hard decision to make. So try not to
screw it up!!!
My Wish for You in 2008
May peace break into your house and may thieves come
to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans
become a magnet of $100 bills. May love stick to your
face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!
May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires
and may happiness slap you across the face and may
your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had
forget your home address! In simple words ...
May 2008 be the best year of your life!!!
From on LF to all the others :-)

Christmas with Louise
As a joke, my brother used to hang a pair of panty hose over
his fireplace before Christmas. He said all he wanted was for Santa
to fill them. What they say about Santa checking the list twice must
be true because every Christmas morning, although Jay's kids'
stockings were overflowed, his poor pantyhose hung sadly empty.
One year I decided to make his dream come true. I put on
sunglasses and went in search of an inflatable love doll. Now, they
don't sell those things at Walmart. I know, I checked. I had to go
to an adult bookstore downtown. If you've never been in an X-rated
store, don't go. You'll only confuse and embarrass yourself. I was
there an hour saying things like, "What does this do?" "You're
kidding me!" "Who would buy that?"
Finally, I made it to the inflatable doll section. I wanted to
buy a standard, uncomplicated doll that could also substitute as a
passenger in my truck so I could use the car pool lane during rush
hour. Finding what I wanted was difficult. Love dolls come in many
The top of the line, according to the side of the box, could do
things I'd only seen in a book on animal husbandry. I settled for
'Lovable Louise.' She was at the bottom of the price scale. To call
Louise a "doll" took a huge leap of imagination.
On Christmas Eve, with the help of an old bicycle pump, Louise
came to life. My sister-in-law was in on the plan and let me in
during the wee morning hours, long after Santa had come and gone. I
filled the dangling pantyhose with Louise's pliant legs and bottom.
I also ate some cookies and drank what remained of a glass of milk
on a nearby tray. I went home and giggled for a couple of hours.
The next morning my brother called to say that Santa had been
to his house and left a present that had made him VERY happy but
had left the dog somewhat confused. She would bark, start to walk away,
then come back and bark some more. We all agreed that Louise should
remain in her panty hose so the rest of the family could admire her
when they came over for the traditional Christmas dinner.
My grandmother noticed Louise the moment she walked in the
door. "What the hell is that?" she asked.
My brother quickly explained, "It's a doll."
"Who would play with something like that?" Granny snapped.
I had several candidates in mind, but kept my mouth shut. "And where
are her clothes?" Granny continued.
"Boy, that turkey sure smells nice, Gran," Jay said, trying to
steer her into the dining room.
But Granny was relentless. "Why doesn't she have any teeth?"
Again, I could have answered, but why would I? It was Christmas and
no one wanted to ride in the back of the ambulance saying, "Hang on
Granny! Hang on!"
My grandfather, a delightful old man with poor eyesight,
sidled up to me and said, " Hey, who's the naked gal by the fireplace?"
I told him she was Jay's friend. A few minutes later I noticed
Grandpa by the mantel, talking to Louise. Not just talking, but
actually flirting. It was then that we realized this might be
Grandpa's last Christmas at home.
The dinner went well. We made the usual small talk about who
had died, who was dying and who should be killed, when suddenly
Louise made a noise that sounded a lot like my father in the
bathroom in the morning. Then she lurched from the panty hose, flew
around the room twice, and fell in a heap in front of the sofa. The
cat screamed. I passed cranberry sauce through my nose and Grandpa
ran across the room, fell to his knees and began administering
My brother fell back over his chair and wet his pants and Granny
threw down her napkin, stomped out of the room and sat in the car.
It was indeed a Christmas to treasure and remember. Later in
my brother's garage, we conducted a thorough examination to decide the
cause of Louise's collapse. We discovered that Louise had suffered
from a hot ember to the back of her right thigh. Fortunately,
thanks to a wonder drug called duct tape, we restored her to perfect
Louise has gone on to star in several bachelor party movies,
and makes periodic Christmas appearances.
I think Grandpa still calls her whenever he can get out of the
I was in the periodontist off to have stitches removed. There was a magazine on the seat next to me, "Real Simple" was the name and one of the articles caught my eye.
"The things that Don't Disappoint"
It got me thinking, the things she listed were very simple things. her friend for all occasions. her dog etc. I had the thing copied and now I can't find it -- RATS
Anyway here is what I can think of off the top of my head. Not in any sort of order:
My son's love, both of them no matter if they are annoyed at me or not.
My blanket when I need to wrap myself in a tight cocoon.
Hot Cocoa ;-) with or without Kaluaha
My friend,Mimi, she and I share a birth date, she is exactly one year younger than I am.
my closet, it's there with clothes all the time.
The face in the mirror in the morning.
I know there are many more but you get the gist of things.
What things don't disappoint you?
I was watching Men In Trees, a rerun tonight. In this episode the main character was brought to a man who helps others with spiritualism.
He told her to put her troubles on rocks, write one word on a rock. Then go to a mountain ( the show is set in Alaska) and toss the rock off the mountain.
She did and said it was very cathartic. Now I know one of her rocks said Fear. I was too busy thinking of were I could find rocks and a marker to hear the rest of her troubles.
It sounds like a very positive thing to do to release your troubles. Now where do I find rocks to write on?
when I get the cookie at the end of my Chinese meal it has a piece of paper inside. As a child I was told it was fortune. As I grew older I realized that there was not one fortune in them. They do, however, has comments in them. Here are a few of my comments.
You have a chance to help someone out right now in a big way.
It's time to get moving. Your spirits will lift accordingly.
The greatest quality is seeking to server others.
You are primed to come up with a creative solution.
This could be an almost perfect day. Enjoy it.
Now tell me what comments you found in your cookies.
( yeah eating chinese and dealing with the discomfort OUCH )
I was feeling a bit depressed the other day, so I called the Mental Health Help Hotline.
I was put through to their 'call center' in Pakistan
I explained that I was feeling suicidal.
They were very excited at this news and wanted to know if I could drive a truck or fly an airplane..
Hints to make the holidays brighter, easier and more enjoyable.
Let's share our shortcut tips for the hoidays.
When addressing envelopes I use the return address labels from the cards I've received. I also cut the return address off of the envelopes, tape them into my address book with the date. Some folks just love to keep moving !!
What tips do you use?
A 98 year old woman wrote this to her bank. The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the New York Times.
I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month.
By my calculations, three 'nanoseconds' must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honor it. I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire salary, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years.
You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.
My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways.
I noticed that whereas I personally attend to your telephone calls and letters, when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.
From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person. My mortgage and loan payments will therefore and hereafter no longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.
Be aware that it is an offense under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope. Please find attached an Application Contact Status which I require your chosen employee to complete. I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative. Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be countersigned by a Notary Public, and the mandatory details of his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be accompanied by documented proof.
In due course, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me. I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modeled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Let me level the playing field even further.
When you call me, press buttons as follows:
1-- To make an appointment to see me.
2-- To query a missing payment.
3-- To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.
4-- To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.
5-- To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.
6-- To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.
7-- To leave a message on my computer. (a password to access my computer is required. A password will be communicated to you at a later date to the Authorized Contact.)
8-- To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 7.
9-- To make a general complaint or inquiry, the contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.
While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call. Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cover the setting
up of this new arrangement.
May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous, New Year.
Your Humble Client
(Remember: This was written by a 98 year old woman)
JUST GOTTA LOVE SENIORS
Have you ever gone through your home and gotten rid of things that "feel" like they are weighing your down?
Or packed them up and put them in the back of the closet?
Today feels like a "clean slate" day.

Shred that stuff and toss it, thin out my closet, put the piles where they belong and generally get rid of stuff !!
Do you do that? how? why? when?
Did you see what's under your picture or where your picture isn't?
It's how many comments you've contributed to the blogs.

What's your favorite quote?
"Rules Of The Air"
1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.
2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again.
3. Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.
4. It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there than up there wishing you were down here.
5. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
6. The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.
7. When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky.
8. A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great' landing is one after which they can use the plane again.
9. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.
10. You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.
11. The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival. Large angle of arrival, small probability of survival and vice versa.
12. Never let an aircraft take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier.
13. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about might be another aeroplane going in the opposite direction. Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide out in clouds.
14. Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of take offs you've made.
15. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.
16. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
17. Helicopters can't fly; they're just so ugly the earth repels them.
18. If all you can see out of the window is ground that's going round and round and all you can hear is commotion coming from the passenger compartment, things are not at all as they should be.
19. In the ongoing battle between objects made of aluminium going hundreds of miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose.
20. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment.
21. It's always a good idea to keep the pointy end going forward as much as possible.
22. Keep looking around. There's always something you've missed.
23. Remember, gravity is not just a good idea. It's the law. And it's not subject to repeal.
24. The three most useless things to a pilot are the altitude above you, runway behind you, and a tenth of a second ago.
Here's a hypothetical image for you - who are the two of you?
When you look in the mirror, you see beyond the glass into a parallel world where you are greeted by identical twins who look just like you. One twin is imbued with all of your most admirable characteristics; the other is the proverbial "bad seed," and he or she possesses all of your undesirable characteristics. Give each individual a name, and then describe them in detail. Do not simply provide a boring list of physical attributes and mannerisms; instead, paint a vivid picture with your words that will convey to the reader each twin's appearance, behavior, attitudes, etc.
I'll post mine when I'm done creating it !!
