Darlene's Daily

I have a wonderful friend in Iowa. Darlene is in her late 80's and has been using a computer for as long as I can remember. After her husband died she decided to be consumed with living rather than just waiting to join him on the other side.

Her daily schedule makes me tired just reading it. She is on the board of several committees and non-profits. On the week-ends she plays the organ or piano for over 11 services at churches, the VA hospital and nursing homes. She keeps her own house, has a garden, plenty of friends and.....being an old farm girl....she gets up every morning at 4am. By 5am she has searched the Internet for fun stuff to send to her friends. I've received her daily e-mails for over 8 years. They have brought me hope, giggles and cleansing tears.

She loves blonde jokes and since many of our family members have blonde hair - we enjoy them as much as she does. I tease her that her roots are blonde.

I've decided to post some of her e-mails here. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Happiness is the place between too little and too much.

A blonde was weed-eating her yard and accidentally cut off the tail of her cat which was hiding in the grass. She rushed her cat, along with the tail, over to WAL-MART! Why WAL-MART??

HELLOOOOOOOOO! WALMART is the largest re-tailer in the world!!!

Praise does wonders for a child's learning.

A dog is truly a man's best friend. If you don't believe it, just try this experiment. Put your dog and your wife in the trunk of the car for an hour. When you open the trunk, which one is really happy to see you?

Getting the facts is only half the job.
The other half is to use them wisely.

The teacher said, "Now class, we know there are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day, and 365 days in a year, so who can tell me how many seconds are there in a year?"

All the kids looked baffled by the question except Rufus, who raises his hand and waves it excitedly."

Yes, Rufus, how many seconds are there in a year?" the teacher asked.

Replied Rufus, "Twelve, m'am. January second, February second, March second..."
