Wednesday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!


WELCOME to Wednesday October 17, 2018.

The  paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers,
wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more,
but enjoy less. We have bigger houses  and smaller families, more conveniences, but less
time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more
experts,  yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too  little, drive too fast,

get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and
pray too seldom. We have  multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk
too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,  but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We  conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.  We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but  accomplish less.

We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more  computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever,  but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small  character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days  of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from  cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the  showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who  looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, “I love you” to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment  for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your  mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,

but by the moments that take our breath away.
That’s my story and I’m sticking too it! HAVE A WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY PEOPLE! And whatever you do, don’t forget to LAFF IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!

A prospective juror in a Dallas District Court was surprised by the definition of voluntary manslaughter given the panel: “An intentional killing that occurs while the defendant is under the immediate influence of sudden passion arising from an adequate cause, such as when a spouse’s mate is found in a ‘compromising position.'”

“See, I have a problem with that passion business,” responded the jury candidate. “During my first marriage, I came in and found my husband in bed with my neighbor. All I did was divorce him. I had no idea that I could have shot him.” She wasn’t selected for the jury. 😱😐😎
