A Sure Bet

A strapping young man at a construction site was constantly bragging about how strong he was and how he could outdo any of the other workers in any feat of strength.
He made a special point of making fun of Morris, one of the oldest and most experienced workers. Every day he would berate Morris and call him a weakling and all sorts of demeaning names.
One day, Morris had had enough of the young man's bragging and taunting.
Calling him out, Morris challenged him, "Why don't you put your money where you mouth is?" he asked. "I'll bet you a week's wages that I can haul something in this wheelbarrow to the far end of the worksite that you won't be able to wheel back!"
"You're on old man," the braggart replied. "It's a bet! Let's see what you got."
Morris grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then he nodding to the young man, he said, "All right. Get in."

Every minute someone leaves this world behind.
We are all in "the line" without knowing it.
We never know how many peple are before us.
We can not move to the back of the line.
We can not step out of the line.
So while we wait in line -
Make the moments count.
Make priorities.
Make the time.
Make your gifts known.
Make a nobody feel like a somebody.
Make your voice heard.
Make the small things big.
Make someone smile.
Make the change.
Make love.
Make up.
Make peace.
Make sure to tell your people they are loved.
Make sure to have no regrets.
Make sure you are ready.

Short, Sweet and Old

I was always taught to respect my elders, but at my age, they're getting hard to find?

Old age has come at a bad time-- just as I was beginning to know everthing, I'm now beginning to forget everything I knew.

When older people say "Enjoy them while you're young," they're talking about your shoulders, hips and knees.

I know how it will end: one of my kids will unplug my life support to charge their phone.

At my funeral I want someone to take my phone and text everyone, "Thanks for coming!"
