Wisdom from Grandpa...
Whether a man winds up with a nest egg, or a goose egg, depends a lot on the kind of chick he marries.
Trouble in marriage often starts when a man gets so busy earnin' his salt he forgets his sugar.
Too many couples marry for better, or for worse, but not for good.
When a man marries a woman, they become one; the trouble starts when they try to decide which one.
If a man has enough horse sense to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she'll never turn into an old nag.
On anniversaries, the wise husband always forgets the past - but never the present.
A foolish husband says to his wife, "Honey, you stick to the washin', ironin', cookin' and scrubbin'. No wife of mine's gonna ‘work’."
Many girls like to marry a military man - he can cook, sew, and make beds, is in good health, and already used to taking orders.
Eventually you reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
Old age is when former classmates are so gray and wrinkled and bald, they don't recognize you.
Have a GREAT day and keep laughing!
It's good for the soul.
And remember my motto:
pay the undertaker with a bad check...It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
