There is no friend as loyal as a book. -Ernest Hemingway
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Let’s swear each with our pinky
We’ll be the best of friends
Until we are old and wrinkly!

“A friend is one before whom I may think aloud.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color. Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense, and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

3. There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness,”
4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)
14. Your friends love you anyway.
15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
FINAL Thought for the day:
Men are like a fine wine. They start out as grapes, and it’s up to women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
“Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.”
Here is, old age at its best.
Larry and Bob, two friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems.
One day Larry didn’t show up. Bob didn’t think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something.. But after Larry hadn’t shown up for a week or so, Bob really got worried. However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Bob didn’t know where Larry lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.
A month had passed, and Bob figured he had seen the last of Larry, but one day, Bob approached the park and — lo and behold — there sat Larry! Bob was very excited and happy to see him and told him so. Then he said, ‘For crying out loud Larry, what in the world happened to you?
Larry replied, ‘I have been in jail.’
‘Jail!’ cried Bob. What in the world for?’
‘Well,’ Larry said, ‘you know Jane, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometimes go?’
‘Yeah,’ said Bob, ‘I remember her. What about her?
‘Well, one day she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded ‘guilty’.
‘The damn judge gave me 30 days for perjury’.
