WELCOME to THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 9, 2021
Things to remember…..
Accept the fact that some days you’re the pigeon – and some days you’re the statue!
Always keep your words soft and sweet – just in case you have to eat them.
Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
Drive carefully – it’s not just cars that can be recalled by their Maker.
If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
Never buy a car you can’t push.
Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on.
Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.
Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
The second mouse gets the cheese.
When everything’s coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.
We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors – but they all have to live in the same box.
A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT THURSDAY people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“This weekend a couple from Connecticut will have the longest marriage ever recorded in the U.S.
They said the secret to their long-lasting marriage is love, compromise, and the fact that neither
one of them has been able to hear a word the other one has said in more than 30 years.” -Jimmy Kimmel😁
“A study found that many types of head lice have mutated and now have become resistant to
over-the-counter treatments. The problem has scientists scratching their heads.” -Conan O’Brien
“The federal government has a new plan that will let people send texts to 911. Yeah, it’s a little frustrating
when you try to text, ‘Burglar! Please hurry!,’ and it auto-corrects to, ‘Burger, please. Hungry.'” -Jimmy Fallon
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A lady is having a bad day at the roulette tables in Vegas. She’s down to her last $50. Exasperated, she exclaims
to the whole table, “What rotten luck I’ve had today! What in the world should I do now?”
A man standing next to her suggests, “I don’t know… why don’t you play your age?”
He walks away, but moments later, his attention is grabbed by a great commotion at the roulette table. Maybe she
won! He rushes back to the table and pushes his way through the crowd. The lady is lying limp on the floor, with the
table operator kneeling over her. The man is stunned. He asks, “What happened? Is she all right?”
The operator replies, “I don’t know. She put all her money on 29, and when 36 came up she just fainted!” 😳
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“What do you mean, twenty feet short?”
“You’re twenty feet short of the woods. The hole is right here in open. The guard is between us and the lights.”
Answer: The Great Escape
In the events leading up to this scene, Allied prisoners considered especially escape prone are being held in a special high-security “escape-proof” German POW (Prisoner Of War) camp, during World War II. Even though they are being watched closely, a mass escape through one of three tunnels dug from the camp to the nearby woods is being plotted by Squadron Leader Roger “Big X” Bartlett (Richard Attenborough) and a few other leaders. In this scene, the night of escape is reached and the tunnel far end is dug upwards to break the soil. Capt. Hilts “The Cooler King” (Steve McQueen) is first to stick his head out of the exit and is dismayed to see the tunnel is too short. He reports back to Bartlett, who then responds with line one. Hilts then clarifies the situation with line two. This movie is based on an actual escape of 76 POWs from Stalag Luft III prison camp near Munich, Germany. But while individual incidents in the film are mostly true, they were rearranged as to both the timing and the people involved. Historical note: Although most of the 76 escapees were eventually captured or killed, the escape did have the desired effect of diverting considerable German resources in tracking down the escapees and increasing the number of camp guards.
