The Best Medicine

Note: We were tied up on a project all day yesterday, then had guests for dinner, so there was no time for writing. This is a repost of a blog from 2016 because I still think laughter is the best medicine. 

They say that laughter is the best medicine. If that’s true, I’m pretty sure that I’m going to live forever.

I learned a long time ago that a sense of humor will get you through just about anything, and one of the best things you can possess is the ability to laugh at yourself. I figure why not, the rest of the world is laughing at me anyway, so I might as well join the party.

And you never know when an opportunity is going to arise to have a good belly laugh. Here’s an example. A while back we were having lunch at a Greek restaurant in Clermont, Florida with our good friends Stu and Donna McNicol. The waiter was taking our order, and after he had Donna’s and Miss Terry’s he turned to me and asked, “And for you, ma’am?” He realized his mistake and apologized and I said, “It’s okay, I have man boobs.” The poor guy started laughing and the rest of us joined right in.

It took him a while, but he finally managed to compose himself, but I wasn’t letting him off the hook that easy. I asked him, “Do you want to touch them?” And it went downhill from there. WAY downhill! By the time it was done, even people at the nearby tables were laughing.

Yep, I plan to keep laughing and having fun every day of my life. How about you?

Congratulations Frank Chrabas, winner of our drawing for an RV camping journal donated by Barbara House. Barbara makes several variations of these, and they all have pages where you can list the date, weather, where you traveled to and from that day, beginning and ending mileage, campground information including amenities at R.V. sites, a place for campground reviews, room to record activities, people met along the way, reminders of places to see and things to do the next time you’re in the area, and a page for notes for each day. We had 43 entries this week. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon.  Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books to foreign countries, only entries with U.S. addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed.

Thought For The Day – Senility has been a smooth transition for me.
