Here's something to bring a smile to your face.  Wish we could see stuff like this in our back yard!

Baby Moose

Turn your volume up slightly so you can hear the music.

A good laugh, even if you’re NOT over 50!


When I bought my Blackberry I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800
employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures
and communicates with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up under duress for
Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, 13 grandkids and 2 great
grand kids could
communicate with me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as
simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of space.

That was before one of my grandkids hooked me up for Tweeter, Tweetree, Twhirl,
Twitterfon, Tweetie and Twittererific Tweetdeck, Twitpix and something that
sends every message to my cell phone and every other program within the texting
world.


My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything except
the bowel movements of the entire next generation. I am not ready to live like
this. I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag.


The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get lost every
now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I keep that in a box
under my tool bench with the Blue tooth [it's red] phone I am supposed to use
when I drive. I wore it once and was standing in line at Barnes and Noble
talking to my wife and everyone in the nearest 50 yards was glaring at me. I
had to take my hearing aid out to use it, and I got a little loud.


I mean the GPS looked pretty smart on my dash board, but the lady inside that
gadget was the most annoying, rudest person I had run into in a long time.
Every 10 minutes, she would sarcastically say, "Re-calc-ul-ating."  You would
think that she could be nicer. It was like she could barely tolerate me. She
would let go with a deep sigh and then tell me to make a U-turn at the next
light. Then if I made a right turn instead…well, it was not a good
relationship.


When I get really lost now, I call my wife and tell
 her the name of the cross streets and while she is starting to develop the same
tone as Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she loves me.

To be perfectly frank, I am still trying to learn how to use the cordless phones
in our house. We have had them for 4 years, but I still haven't figured out how
I can lose three phones all at once and have run around digging under chair
cushions and checking bathrooms and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone
rings.


The world is just getting too complex for me. They even mess me up every time I
go to the grocery store. You would think they could settle on something
themselves but this sudden "Paper or Plastic?" every time I check out just
knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid
looking confused, but I never remember to take them in with me.


Now I toss it back to them. When they ask me, "Paper or Plastic?" I just say,
"Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual."
 Then it's their turn to stare at me with a blank look.


I was recently asked if I tweet. I answered, No, but I do toot a lot."

PS I know some of you are not over 50.  I sent it to you to allow you to forward
it to those who are.

A hunter and his friend were sitting in a tall tower stand near Highway

7 early one cold December morning. Suddenly, a huge buck walked out over

the corn they had spread in the low shrubs. The buck was magnificent, a

once in a lifetime animal. His rack was huge. The hunter's hand shook as

his mind was already counting the Boone and Crockett points. Moving quickly,

the hunter carefully aimed the Leopold scope on his .30-06 at the

unsuspecting buck. As he was about to squeeze the trigger on this deer

of a lifetime, his friend alerted him to a funeral procession passing slowly

down Highway 7. The hunter pulled away from the gunstock, set the rifle

down, took off his hat, bowed his head and then closed his eyes in prayer.



His friend was stunned, "Wow,

that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen you do.

You actually let that trophy deer go to pay respects to a passing funeral

procession. You are indeed the kindest man I have ever known, and I feel

lucky to call you a friend."

The hunter shrugged. "Yeah, well, we

were married for 37 years."

If it were reworded SHE would have been in a quilt shop, about to throw down her credit card on that once in a liffe time bolt of fabric...

My son is in the Air Force and was sent to Fairbanks, Alaska last month. He has sent me several pictures of the moose outside of his apartment building. He says they are huge. By the way, he has sent pics of many things in the area and it is absolutely beautiful.

Ok here goes. . . I hope this works.  I'm not real good at cutting and pasting.  This is awesome.
