Aphorism
A SHORT, POINTED SENTENCE EXPRESSING A WISE OR CLEVER OBSERVATION OR A GENERAL TRUTH; ADAGE


1. The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.



2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.




3. If you don't have a sense of humour, you probably don't have any sense at all.




4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.




5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.




6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the
dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?



7. Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.




8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?




9.. Scratch a cat and you will have a permanent job.




10. No one has more driving ambition than the boy who wants to buy a car.




11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.




12. There are worse things than getting a call for the wrong number at   4 am - it could be the right number.




13. No one ever says "It's only a game." when their team is winning.




14. I've reached the age where the happy hour is a nap.




15. Be careful reading the fine print. There's no way you're going to like it.




16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.




17. Do you realize that in about 40years, we'll have thousands of old men and old ladies running around with tattoos? (And rap music will be the Golden Oldies ! )
No! Say it isn't so!



18. Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than in a Golf .




19. After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead!

 
This is my favourite one!
 
Always be yourself, because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones that mind, don't matter.

 This photo was taken in a Senior Center in Plymouth, Michigan . The course was "How to Prevent Alzheimers."
The Project of the Day was, "To keep your mind working, try to create something from memory."
It brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?

FW: Why our grandparents were so happy.....

 
Freddie Reese Said  .....
 
 
Anyone been left a medicine cabinet they
havn't looked through"?
 
 
 
  

 
 
 
 
"Why Our Grandparents Had
Fond Memories Of Their Youth..."
(I'm surprised they remembered anything!) 


A bottle of Bayer's 'Heroin'. 
Between 1890 and 1910 heroin
was sold as a non-addictive
substitute for morphine.
It was also used to treat children
suffering with a strong cough.
 
 
 
 
Metcalf's Coca Wine was one of
a huge variety of wines with cocaine
on the market.Everybody used to
say that it would make you happy and
it would also work as a medicinal treatment.
 
 
 
Mariani wine (1875) was the most famous
Coca wine of it's time. 

Pope Leo XIII used to carry one bottle with
him all the time. He awarded Angelo Mariani
(the producer) with a Vatican gold medal..

Maltine. Maltine Coca Wine was produced
by the Maltine Manufacturing Company of 
New York .. It was suggested that you should
take a full glass with or after every meal.
Children should only take half a glass. 
 
Opium for Asthma:
 
 
 

At 40% alcohol plus 3 grams of opium per tablet,
It didn't cure you, but you didn't care.


 
Cocaine Tablets (1900).
 
 
 
All stage actors, singers, teachers and preachers
had to have them for a maximum performance.
Great to 'smooth' the voice. 
 
 
 
COCAINE DROPS FOR TOOTH ACHE.
 
 

Very popular for children in 1885. 
Not only did they relieve the pain, they made
the children very happy!


Opium for newborns.
 
 

I'm sure this would make them sleep well, not
only the Opium, but also 46% alcohol!


It's no wonder they were called, 
'The Good Old Days'!
From cradle to grave...
Everyone Was Stoned!
