Sunday SIllies / Aw...Mondays/

 I am overwhelmed these days but think of each one of you that still stops by to visit me. I wanted to share some Sunday Sillies from the Real Peter Tork the former Monkee member and amazing musician.  His social media is still active and I love the sillies shared there. Here they are:

Q. What do you get when you drop a pumpkin?

A. Squash

Q. What is the best thing to put in a pumpkin pie?

A. Your teeth of course!

Q. Who helped the baby pumpkin to cross the road?

A. The Crossing Gourd


Some wise words my son-in-law Zach shared with me and I shared with everyone else.

Do not ask your children 

to strive for extraordinary lives.

Such striving may seem admirable,

but it is the way of foolishness.

Help them instead to find the wonder

and the marvel of an ordinary life.

Show them the joy of tasting

tomatoes, apples,  and pears.

Show them how to cry

when pets and people die.

Show them the infinite pleasure

in the touch of a hand. 

And make the ordinary come alive for them

The extraordinary will take care of itself.

Always good to lean on those who care and love you, phamily, friend...

Basketball boys...

A thoughtful boy...

Did Zach author that advice? It's wonderful, and now I wish I'd had that back in the early 70's!

That's fantastic advice from Zach, Anne. Wow! It's so true.
Loved the corny jokes, too.
