T-13++ A Little Happiness to Pass Along ...

Make Time for Small Reflections
My Wordless Wednesdays are at Happily Retired Gal
and Sacred Ruminations ... Witty Wednesday is in the next post.

I offer this humorous email as my T-13 today with gratitude to the friend who thoughtfully sent it to me and to Akelamalu of Everything and Nothing & George of Senior Hiker ... both of whom dropped by early & were kind enough to offer feedback about how many photos were visible so I could 'fix' it for those who visit later. I hope you enjoy my Thursday Thirteen post with a little extra ... just because! Methinks there still may be a few invisible photos, and if you'll let me know specifically which ones ... I'll do what I can to add them.

My 46th Thursday Thirteen
Plus a few more ... just because!

Just give me 5 minutes.
5 minutes is all I need and I'll be good as new.


OK ... I'll be his friend, but I don't have to like it!



They'll never find me in here!



ALL RIGHT, WHO CHOSE WHO WE STAND BY?
I HAVE STANDARDS.



IF YOU TELL THE GUYS ABOUT THIS, I'M PEEING IN YOUR SHOES!



CAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT THIS DUDE LOOKS LIKE WET? HA HA HA!



HAVE YOU EVER SEEN PORCUPINE BABIES?
GIVES A WHOLE NEW MEANING TO LABOR PAINS!!


I'M SO GLAD IM NOT AN ONLY CHILD!


AS LONG AS YOU'RE GONNA PUT HER IN MY BED
I MIGHT AS WELL CUDDLE.




SOMETIMES YOUR BED JUST FEELS SOOO GOOD!



EARS? WHAT ARE EARS?


Nothing replaces having a friend:





And now ... a few more for good measure ... just because.

A DAY WITHOUT SMILING IS A WASTED DAY!!



Inner Strength:


If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can get going without pep pills,
If you can always be cheerful,
ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining
and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day
and be grateful for it,

If you can understand your loved ones
are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism &
blame without resentment,

If you can ignore a friend's
limited education
and never correct him,

If you can resist treating a rich friend
better than a poor friend,

If you can conquer tension
without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
