  5. A long time ago... people seeking treasure in ancient, dangerous places were told "better an empty pocket than a full grave"

    Nowadays... I'd tell some people "better an empty pocket than an empty head" 


    But... unfortunately you can't buy yourself a brain or a soul .. so there will be lots of empty heads running 'round the world. Lol

      Non-24 must suck!  I worked nights for a long time.  When I went back to day shift it took forever to learn to sleep at night again! I was a zombie for several months!

    3. MacGreg


      I'm sorry you continue to experience that, my boy. I'm sure you've already gone down this path, but is there a natural supplement you could take to help you sleep that wouldn't be adverse to your meds?

    4. BlindAmbition


      Mac Sir, Too many variables with supplements and meds @MacGreg. Sir told me this morning that we will do some breathing exercises before bed. To see if that helps me relax. Thank you for always showing concern. I'll find a way through it.

  20. Why don't you ever see hippopotamus hiding in trees?

    Because they're really good at it.




    There was a prison break and I saw a midget climb up

    the fence. As he Jumped down he sneered at me and

    I thought, well that's a little condescending.




    If you want to catch a squirrel just climb a tree and

    act like a nut.

    It's All Relative: 7 Familial Phrases


    (1 of 7)      Say Uncle!

    Etymologists are unsure about origin of the term say uncle! One popular theory posits that it comes from a joke from the late 1800s in which a man is trying to get his parrot to say the word "uncle." When the parrot refuse, the man throws the parrot into a pen with 10 fowls, expecting them to finish him off. He comes back to find his parrot killing off the last of the fowls, mimicking the man's words: "Say uncle!" Etymologists believe the expression took on a life of its own from there, and was used as an idiom by bullies demanding that their tormented victims cry out for mercy, related to cry uncle.



    (2 of 7)      Mother lode

    The expression mother lode first appeared in English in the 1860s in the context of mining. A lode is a metalliferous veinlike deposit, and the mother lode marks the location of a rich or important deposit of metal, very valuable in mining. In the 1920s, a figurative extension of mother lode entered into popular usage. This sense, still popular today, means "a major or profitable source of supply.



    (3 of 7)      Mom-and-pop

    A mom-snd-pop  refers to a small-scale, owner-operated business.  This term first came to E nglish in the mid-1900s to describe family-operated stores, but its meaning widened over time to include any small business. Contrast mom-and-pop with the term chain store, an expression that surfaced in the US in the early 1900s meaning "one of a group of retail stores  under the same ownership and selling similar merchandise." Extremely large chains are sometimes called big-box stores, a descriptor often used in opposition to mon-and-pop.

      That’s just Arizona

      Kidding or not. I fear that a posse of Arizonans are coming you way, looking to have a heart to heart chat(gulp) with you. I think I even saw them carrying a hemp necktie in your size, as a going away forever, present.:o

    3. sandrewn



      your hippopotamus joke reminded me of one from when i was a kid "why can't you find the elephants when they hide in the cherry trees?" "because they paint their toe nails red"

      I remember them well. Did you know that, " Elephants jump out their cherry trees between 2 and 4 in the afternoon," and do you know what that icky stuff is between elephants toes? " That's all that is left of people wandered in to the cherry tree forests between 2 and 4 in the afternoons!"



      (toe jam, eww)

      Former-Sheriff Joe Arpaio wouldn’t dare disrespect the sovereignty of the state of California by illegally swimming across the Colorado River! Abiding by legal borders is what he’s all about! He’d never illegally invade another state!  ;-)

      America's Got Talent, I think? There was an acrobatic troupe called "Diavolo", and I believe that the choreographer was named Paul?  :huh:

      The performers were good, but the director/choreographer guy was a little full of himself. :P Like he thought that he was carrying the whole weight of the act by himself. <_<
