This week = Getting to know me through the alphabet- "L"

1. Livin Life - Live your life every second of every day! Don't sit back and wait for it to happen.

2. Laugh! - I love comdedy, but mostly I love smiles! Laugh, it cures most things.

3. Love! - Love your family. My Mom always said for us to love our family, because he gave them to us for a reason, perhaps to teach us how to live and love, and in some cases, teaches us how to accept and be tolerant. We can chhose our friends, but family is what it is.

4. Learn. - Never stop learning. Whether it be a new word, a recipe, whatever pertains to your life, try to learn something new each day.

5. Lily - My precious 2 yr old granddaughter.

10. Letters - I love receiving and sending letters, but the old fashioned way, through the mail, not by email.

11. Lunch - hubby and I like to go out to lunch. Dinnertime is so crowded, and the lunch crowd and the wait isn't nearly as bad.

12. Lists - I am a listmaker, always have been. I find great pleasure in marking things off the list.

13. Looney - Most of the time, I'm totally looney!!!!!

Love their swimsuits!

George Carlin 1937-2008

A comic legend has died. Carlin, who had a history of heart trouble, went into St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica on Sunday afternoon complaining of chest pain and died later that evening, said his publicist, Jeff Abraham. He produced 23 comedy albums, 14 HBO specials, three books, a few TV shows and appeared in several movies.
Carlin was due to receive the 11th Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in November. The honor was announced just last week, around the time of his final performances, at the Orleans in Las Vegas. According to his website, he had dozens of shows booked through the end of the year.
He has been one of my favorite comedians for many years. I understand he is very vulgar, so if you are offended at that, DO Not view the video below.
