Do you have a folder, an envelope, or a drawer that you put things into that you don't know where else to put them? Well, I do.

I elected to stay home today and was in the mood to look through some of those odds and ends that I have had for years!

I found recipes that I'll never make, special thank you notes from family and friends, snapshots that need to be put away and newspaper clippings that I found interesting at the time.


I threw away lots of stuff but kept items that are still relevant and am not ready to part with yet.

Here is a "funny" that I have had for a long time. Maybe you have heard it before but I think it's worth repeating:
Four Jewish brothers left home for college, became doctors and prospered.

Some years later, chatting after a Hanukkah dinner, they discussed the gifts that they were able to give to their elderly mother.

The first said, "I had a big house build for Mama."

The second son said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar theater built in the house."

The third said, I had my Mercedes dealer deliver her an SL600 with a chauffeur."

The fourth said, "Listen to this. You know how Mama loves reading the Torah and you know she can't see very well. I sent her a parrot that can recite the entire Torah. It took twenty rabbis 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for twenty years but it was worth it. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it."

Soon thereafter, Mom sent out her thank you notes. She wrote:
"Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks so much."

"Marvin, I am to old to travel. I stay home, I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes...and the driver is a Nazi. A million thanks."

Menachim, you gave me a theater with Dolby sound, it could hold 50 people, but all my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing and I'm nearly blind. Thanks anyway."

"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. Such a delicious chicken."
I still laugh when I read this one - not throwing this "goodie" out yet!!

LOL Priceless!!!!!!
ROTFLOL! over your story, but what gives with the photo?

Glad you asked the question about the photo. Steve put up that photo of me when I was about 25. (I could kneel then) It was taken somewhere down the cape. I was fascinated with that large fish.

That's a photo that could be tossed
Oh, don't toss that photo, Millie!! It's good to remember when we were young, pretty and flexible!

I have so many recipes that I'll never cook. Sometimes I wonder what made me save them. I need to go through those and toss most out.

You gave a good laugh this morning. ;-)
New at this blogging but learning. I'm trying to find out how to add you to my Blog,so I can follow you. Love reading you! I am 69 and it's so nice to find a blog that I can relate with. Love your pictures; I am in the process of going through mine to give to my kids. Thank you.
Oh my oh my......laughing here too.
Yeah, it's an oldie, but like all of us oldies it's still a goodie. ;-)
Talk about "priceless" You are a "Gem."
Glad you are back!

"Right On."
I liked the joke too. I have a giant junk drawer and lots of photos. Every once and a while I come across a gem, a trinket, a note, or photo, that reminds how good it is to have that junk drawer!
I enjoyed reading this post. Thank you for the great writing. You have been awarded the Heartfelt Blog award. Come on over and grab your award! You deserve it and here is the link:
Millie, I have a drawer and a basket I keep things like this in.
When kids come - they look in the basket at the different cards and clippings.
So many times I cannot respond - seems this new air card I use in the country is "slow". But I relate so to you.
You made me laugh - sharing about the chicken.
Oh, don't toss the photo. I was just curious as to what on earth you were looking at. Would never have guessed it was a fish -- sure didn't look like any I had ever seen, but then I'm most familiar with fresh water fish not ocean fish.
