One-Liner Wisdom

A friend sent me a selection of these "old fart" bumper stickers. (Thanks, Kate H.!) and I was so tickled I had to go to the web site to read them all. Don't have liquids in your mouth when you browse. I'm just warning you.

Lord, you know this might not be a bad idea. As long as they give you enough vowels. They could make a bonus offer where you get a free case of soup if you can guess the mystery sentence in the contents of the can you open.

Okay. I don't want to hear any more grumbling about the calories in my recipes or I'm gonna wave this one at you. (Insert smile.)

In spite of what you may be thinking, this one has absolutely nothing to do with the previous one. The squirrel has obviously not been able to replace anything with food.

Now there is an attitude to admire. One can only hope it's the gift that keeps on giving. Well -- as long as it's giving good stuff. More or less. I'm not that hard to please, all things considered.

You realize, of course, we have become a society that reveals its innermost psyche in bumper stickers and tee shirts. Sometimes I have to wonder what the ancients would have thought of us. I have to believe they wouldn't approve of the way we blurt it all out on vehicles and bosoms. Look at the kazillions of yards of perfectly clean linen togas they had -- and not a single slogan among them.

Thanks for the laughs first thing this morning. I needed that...

It's funny but some t's are fun to read. But unfortunately some should be ashamed.

As for bumper stickers I have to read them mostly in parking lots. :-)

Ah, I see you have decided to add reality to your blog. Pants? Large sized soup? Calories?

How about one of the best killer dishes of all time from a Russian friend, "Noodles and Cream Cheese:" 1 cube of soft butter whipped with a container of softened cream cheese. Boil package of noodles. Drain noodles and mix together. For two, I halve everything going a little slight on the noodles. Very addictive. You are welcome. lol

If it's not you, it's Ms. G tempting me to enlarge my waddle. What's the old saying? With friends like these ... LOL.

I made Killer Stew last night & thought about you. Receipt to follow in a blog, I promise.

Ohmigawd. I have GOT to try that noodle dish. Mage, you didn't say what kind of noodles but I'm thinking Kluskis would be fantastic for this.

Kate, I will hold you to your promise. This is the proper time of year to be sharing Killer Stew.
