This was too cute not to share

I read this one today and I had to post it!!!


The couple were 85 years old, and had been married for sixty
years... Though they were far from rich, they managed to get by because
they watched their pennies.
Though not young, they were both in very good health, largely due
to the wife's insistence on healthy foods and exercise for the last

One day, their good health didn't help when they went on a rare
vacation and their plane crashed, sending them off to Heaven.
They reached the pearly gates, and St. Peter escorted them inside.
He took them to a beautiful
mansion, furnished in gold and fine silks, with a fully stocked kitchen
and a waterfall in the master bath. A maid could be seen hanging their
favorite clothes in the closet.

They gasped in astonishment when he said, "Welcome to Heaven. This
will be your home now."

The old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. "Why,
nothing," Peter replied, "remember, this is your reward in Heaven."

The old man looked out the window and right there he saw a
championship golf course, finer and more beautiful than any ever-built
on Earth.
"What are the greens fees?", grumbled the old man.
"This is heaven," St. Peter replied. "You can play for free, every

Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch,
with every imaginable cuisine laid out before them, from seafood to
steaks to exotic deserts, free flowing beverages.
"Don't even ask," said St. Peter to the man. "This is Heaven, it
is all free for you to enjoy."

The old man looked around and glanced nervously at his wife.

"Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol foods, and the
decaffeinated tea?" he asked.
"That's the best part," St. Peter replied. "You can eat and drink
as much as you like of whatever you like, and you will never get fat or

"This is Heaven!"

The old man pushed, "No gym to work out at?"
"Not unless you want to," was the answer.

"No testing my sugar or blood pressure or..."
"Never again. All you do here is enjoy yourself."

The old man glared at his wife and said, "You and your bran
muffins. We could have been here ten years ago! "

Now how cute is that!!!???

This is my first post!!

I have a houseful of men and I am the only female in my home, not including the guinea pigs, which are "my girls". I have two boys that are in football, and I love it!!! I am such the football mom, I am the one on the sidelines, yelling like a fool!!! As a matter of fact, this is my favorite time of the year, August to February, is the best!! I have a 19yo son who is going into the Marines, and he should be going in bootcamp in December. I will worry about him, but I know that if he is going into the Marines, they will teach him how to stay alive. I have been married for 20 years, June 4th, and yeah, that is a long time!!

Well, here's what happened today...

My hubby got it in his crawl to clean out the basement, with my oldest boy. Which is great, only for him! I don't know about anyone else, but when my hubby gets something on his mind to do, and he don't want to do it, he makes everyone else just as happy as he is. Well, I tried to stay away from him as much as possible today, but there were a few times that I had to talk to him, just so that he didn't think we forgot about him. What a treat for me! He was sweating and miserable, and headstrong in what he wanted to do. He asked my opinion, but I knew he didn't want my opinion, so I told him that he should do what he thinks would work. Knowing full well that I just laid it in his lap, and that's not what he wanted. I think he finally gave up and is now down there singing, and he is so loud, no one upstairs can hear their TV. But as long as he is happy, that is all that matters.

My middle boy had football practice today, and I can't wait for the games!! When I picked him up he told me all about his practice. I love hearing about it, because I can't go. For some reason, the parents can't be on the practice field when the Jr High practices. I wonder if they have heard of me, being the goofy football mom??..ummmmmmm Well, anyway, my boy has gotten into the habit of speaking to me with his mouthpiece in. If anyone doesn't know what I am talking about, try sticking playdoh in your mouth and talking, that's about what I hear. And for some reason he feels that he has to wear it 2 hours before he goes to practice and 2 hours after practice. I asked him why he does that, and he said that coach said that they should wear it to get used to it.

My youngest cannot wait until football starts! We went the other day to sign him up and I think everyone in the county was there!! He got all of his equipment, and it is just sitting there waiting for him to use it! And he is getting more and more miserable each day it gets closer and closer!

I has been raining here for the past three days, and I am waiting to see an ark coming down the street!! I am going stir crazy, because it is August and the temp right now is 66*, now how crazy is that??

Well, I am being bellowed for, I know it has to be important, like one of my boys is looking at the other or they are breathing on them or they are fighting over air (oh, this is a true story, I'll have to tell it later). Well, have a great rest of the day!!
