"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty, and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming---"WOW-What a ride!" Author unknown

I sure won't end up with a "pretty, well-preserved body" -- but I want to keep what I've got in working order till I "skid in broadside"!

That's a quote I picked up somewhere 5 years ago and it is hanging on my bulletin board since.

Tomorrow, dh goes in for a medical test to check out his body for suspected medical problems.
Today, he checked out our automatic watering system for our lawn. Who knows.

Now this is funny. I just turned on PBS and "Masterchefs" is on with Julia Child and a much younger Emeril! Nothing new and matching in sight.
