A little story from a Wise Organist... Miss Beatrice

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never
been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.
One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her
quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.
As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young pastor noticed a
cut-glass bowl sitting on top of it. The bowl was filled with water,
and in the water floated, of all things, a Blue condom! When she
returned with tea and scones, they began to chat. The pastor tried to stifle
his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater,
but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist.
'Miss Beatrice", he said, "I wonder if you would tell me about this?"
pointing to the bowl.

"Oh, yes," she replied, "isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the Park
a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The
directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and
that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I haven't had the flu all winter.

See, and here you thought I only posted funny stuff. Take a hint from an old lady...
I hope it works on the next wave of the the Blues; I wonder how they get IN. Someone with key's approves them... Can't be Miss Beatrice. LOL
I've got a glass bowl... Next, I have to get a Condo from Europe... in the
bowl...


Trooly,



Tango

I know some of you will not understand this message, (Ha!) but, I bet you know someone who might. I got this from an old trusted friend... Remember
Dan's post about boots and bonnet's... I bet the Blues aren't old enough to
know any of this... Someone's letting them IN...



FENDER SKIRTS

I came across this phrase yesterday 'FENDER SKIRTS.' After Dan's post...


A term I haven't heard in a long time, and thinking about 'fender skirts' started me thinking about other words that quietly disappear from our language with hardly a notice like 'curb feelers'



And 'steering knobs.' (AKA) suicide knob, Neckers Knobs.



Since I'd been thinking of cars, my mind naturally went that direction first....

Any kids will probably have to find some elderly person over 50 to explain some of these terms to you. LOL

Remember 'Continental kits ?'

They were rear bumper extenders and spare tire covers that were supposed to make any car as cool as a Lincoln Continental.



When did we quit calling them 'emergency brakes?'

At some point 'parking brake' became the proper term. But I miss the hint of drama that went with 'emergency brake.'

I'm sad, too, that almost all the old folks are gone who would call the accelerator the 'foot feed.' Many today do not even know what a clutch is or that the dimmer switch used to be on the floor.

Didn't you ever wait at the street for your daddy to come home, so you could ride the 'running board' up to the house?

Here's a phrase I heard all the time in my youth but never anymore - 'store-bought.' Of course, just about everything is store-bought these days. But once it was bragging material to have a store-bought dress or a store-bought bag of candy.

'Coast to coast' is a phrase that once held all sorts of excitement and now means almost nothing. Now we take the term 'world wide' for granted. This really floors me...

On a smaller scale, 'wall-to-wall' was once a magical term in our homes. In the '50s, everyone covered his or her hardwood floors with, wow, wall-to-wall carpeting! Today, everyone replaces their wall-to-wall carpeting with hardwood floors. Go figure.

When's the last time you heard the quaint phrase 'in a family way?' It's hard to imagine that the word 'pregnant' was once considered a little too graphic, a little too clinical for use in polite company, so we had all that talk about stork visits and 'being in a family way' or simply 'expecting.'

Apparently 'brassiere' is a word no longer in usage. I said it the other day and my daughter cracked up. I guess it's just 'bra' now. 'Unmentionables' probably wouldn't be understood at all.,,,

I always loved going to the 'picture show,' but I considered 'movie' an affectation.

Most of these words go back to the '50s, but here's a pure-'60s word I came across the other day - 'rat fink.' Ooh, what a nasty put-down!

Here's a word I miss - 'percolator.' That was just a fun word to say. And what was it replaced with? 'Coffee maker.' How dull. Mr. Coffee, I blame you for this..?

I miss those made-up marketing words that were meant to sound so modern and now sound so retro. Words like 'DynaFlow' and 'Electrolux.' Introducing the 1963 Admiral TV, now with 'SpectraVision!'

Food for thought - Was there a telethon that wiped out lumbago? Nobody complains of that anymore. Maybe that's what castor oil cured, because I never hear mothers threatening kids with castor oil anymore.

Some words aren't gone, but are definitely on the endangered list. The one that grieves me most, 'supper.' Now everybody says 'dinner.' Save a great word. Invite someone to supper. Discuss fender skirts

Someone forwarded this to me. I thought some of us of a 'certain age' would remember most of these. Remember, that song Blue on Blue ------- Now that
we are through...... Vinton... I think...LOL


Verry truly My friends,


Tango

In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.


The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of

government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of 'cocktails', 'highballs' and just a good old-fashioned 'stiff drink'. Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of:

'MOUNT & DO'.

Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutelyNO recollection of what to do with them.

12. Men are like Lava Lamps .. Fun to look at, but not very bright.

13. Men are like Parking Spots All the good ones are taken, the rest are handicapped.

The government today announced that it is changing its national symbol to a CONDOM because it more accurately reflects the government’s political stance.
A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks and gives you a sense of security while you’re actually being screwed.
Damn, it just doesn’t get more accurate than that.

New York, Central Park, Sunday afternoon...
people are walking, enjoying the weather.
Suddenly a big dog attacks a little child.
A man sees what's happening, runs to the child, throws the dog away from the victim and rescues the child.
Unfortunately the dog hits the ground hard and dies instantly.
All the people approach the man, congatulate him shake his hand,etc.
TV crew , reporters and journslists arrive at the scene.
They tell the man that they are going to write an article about the incident and that the article will start like that:" A New Yorker rescues a child attacked by a dog".
The man tells them that he is not a New Yorker. They reply:"Ok, we'll write then that an American rescues a child..."
The man says:"But I am not American".
"So what nationality are you?"
"I am Palestinian".
The next day there is an article in the newspaper and the headline says:
"A PALESTINIAN TERRORIST KILLS AN AMERICAN DOG."

Dirty Parrots
A woman had two female parrots who were always yelling, “We’re prostitutes, wanna have a little fun?” One day, she was talking to her Preacher about this. He said he had two male parrots and all they did was read the Bible. He thought perhaps they would be a good influence on the two females. So they put the four parrots together. So, the females yelled at the male parrots,

“We’re prostitutes, wanna have a little fun?” One male parrot said to the other, “Put the Bibles away! We’ve made it to heaven!”

Laugh Always
