"To laugh often and much... to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children . . . to leave the world a better place. . . & to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived...

This is to have succeeded

Aren't they supposed to be "enemies"? hehehe

When Grandma Goes to Court

When Grandma Goes To Court

Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.'

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?'

She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a
youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.'

The defense attorney nearly died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said:

'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair!'

I am using the Tetrafin Food for added colour and I must say, it did make the fishes glow brighter. =)

A Happy Birthday Indeed ...

I had a very special and indeed a very happy birthday as I spent it with people who truly care and love me. =) Aside from that, my friends (old and new) remembered my special day. =)

It feels really good knowing that they know... =)

My nephew was all excited for my brithday too that he spent the night here with me. I then brought him to school the next day, which was awhile ago actually.

I also had very special gifts - a mickey mouse shawl, and a new cellphone! My nephew forgot his gift for me so that's another surprise.

My day couldn't be better than what transpired...

To all you out there who didn't forget, my sincerest gratitude! =)

brothers and sisters

At the seaside restaurants in Macapagal Ave., pirated DVDs are being sold. That is where I bought the Gossip Girl series and about two (2) weekends ago, we were there again having dinner and naturally, DVDs were bought. =) I bought this series called "Brothers and Sisters" because it seemed interesting, with a cast including Sally Field, Robe Lowe, and Calista Flockhart aka Ally McBeal. Since we bought a lot of movies, I watched them first. It was just last night that I began watching the b & s series and I am right. The series was good!

I particularly like the way they show the dymanics in a family composed of five (5) children whose lives and personalities complement and clash at the same time. I can't help but relate in certain situations and see my family do the same. =) They seem dysfunctional but then I realize, no family isn't. Know what I mean?

They are the "Walkers", and theirs is a family that argue on matters about politics, beliefs and values but at the same a family that you know you could count on and will always be there in times of crisis and triumphs. They give true meaning to what a family should be.

Nice. =)
