Grandma's Class

Thanks to benzeknees for this one.




1) No matter how hard you try, you can’t baptize cats.
2) When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don’t let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don’t hit her back. They always catch the second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can’t trust dogs to watch your food.
6) Don’t sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don’t wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you’re sad is Grandma’s lap.



1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don’t hurt.
3) Families are like fudge…mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
4) Today’s mighty oak is just yesterday’s nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It’s like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.



Santa Claus?

1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don’t believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.




At age 4 success is…Not piddling in your pants.
At age 12 success is…Having friends.
At age 17 success is…Having a driver’s license.
At age 35 success is…Having money.
At age 50 success is…Having money.
At age 70 success is…Having a drivers license.
At age 75 success is…Having friends.
At age 80 success is…Not piddling in your pants.

    You and I do a lot of internal jogging. Some great wisdom here, specially from the children.

    I really like that life’s definition of success. 🙂 I identify with it.

    The last one on Success is rather too close to the truth!

    Hilarious.. I love the Success one though I don’t agree about the money bit.. success should be measured on the quality of the relationships you have with people and the help you can give to others… I do have a sense of humour honest!

    Love the laughing being exercise one, Tilly. I’ve had a few work outs this week reading your blog alone! 😀

    Loved the success definitions.
    Except at 39 success is drinking a whole cup of tea at one sitting.

    Love these. Tilly. Isn’t it a good thing that wrinkles don’t hurt? 😉

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
