Thursday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!

WELCOME to Thursday March 19, 2020
Slow Dance………….
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down, Don’t dance so fast
Time is short The music won’t last
Do you run through each day on the fly
When you ask “How are you?” do you hear the reply?
When the day is done, do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores running through your head?
You’d better slow down, Don’t dance so fast
Time is short The music won’t last
Ever told your child, We’ll do it tomorrow
And in your haste, not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die
‘Cause you never had time to call and say “Hi”?
Don’t dance so fast Time is short
The music won’t last When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift…. Thrown away…
Life is not a race. Do take it slower

Hear the music before your song is over.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a
great Thursday people and whatever you do, don’t forget 
to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
He was a mediocre conductor of a mediocre orchestra. He had been having problems
with the basses; they were the least professional of his musicians. It was the last
performance of the season, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, which required extra effort
from the basses at the end. Earlier that evening, he found the basses celebrating one
of their birthdays by passing a bottle around. As he was about to cue the basses, he
knocked over his music stand. The sheet music scattered. As he stood in front of his
orchestra, his worst fear was realized; it was the bottom of the 9th,
no score and the basses were loaded. 😱😁😎
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” 
 “Oh Jerry, don’t let’s ask for the moon. We have the stars”
Answer:  Now, Voyager!

Boy, you don’t hear dialogue like that anymore (mercifully)! The quote is from 1942’s melodrama “Now, Voyager”, where Bette Davis plays Charlotte Vale opposite Paul Henreid as Jerry Durrance. Charlotte is a neurotic heiress who winds up at a sanitarium. Feeling better, she goes on a cruise where she meets Jerry and falls in love. They have an affair in Rio but it must end as Jerry is married (to a shrew) and has a daughter, Tina. Davis goes back to the sanitarium again and meets (unwanted) Tina. She winds up taking Tina back to live with her. When she meets Jerry again, he asks if she is happy with her life because they never got together. The quote above is her answer.
