Summary of Life



1) No matter how hard you try, you can’t baptize cats.
2) When your Mum is mad at your Dad, don’t let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don’t hit her back. They always catch the second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can’t trust dogs to watch your food.
6) Don’t sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don’t wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you’re sad is Grandpa’s lap.

1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don’t hurt.
3) Families are like fudge…mostly sweet, with a few nuts
4) Today’s mighty oak is just yesterday’s nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It’s like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.


1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down there.
4) You’re getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It’s frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.


1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don’t believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.


At age 4 success is not piddling in your pants.
At age 12 success is having friends.
At age 17 success is having a driver’s license.

At age 35 success is having money.
At age 50 success is having money.
At age 70 success is having a drivers license.
At age 75 success is having friends.
At age 80 success is not piddling in your pants.

Always remember to forget the troubles that pass your way;
forget the blessings that come each day.

Treasure all of life’s moments; cherish friendships and love!

    These are funny and good for a laugh or too, but there is also a lot of truth as well. It is good to be able to laugh at life and sometimes we just have to accept those things we can not change as we are all getting less younger than we were yesterday. 🙂 Good post Rhonda and good to have you back.Hugs and smiles Dianne 🙂

    Hi Rhonda, Love the pics! The words are such a great mix of hilariousness and wise humour. So true not to let mom brush hair when she is cross – how well I remember that with this memory jog. I wish I knew all the answers . . . LOL. Hope the return to work was a great, lovely adventure. Today in YVR it is raining; actual raindrops on pavement, sidewalks, flower beds. Just refreshingly gorgeous. Going for a brief stroll in the rain because the air will smell so clean. Have a great Sunday Rhonda.

    Hello Rhonda: Great to revisit the humour of great truths. The elderly person\’s ones reminded me of my mom. I asked her at age 70 (75?) what gets better/is better at old(er) age? Her answer was so spontaneous and immediate. She said, \’You are kinder with yourself.\’ This was the most unexpected and, for me, joyful answer. She explained a bit more but it gave me a lovely image of the psychology of aging. See you soon 🙂
