Well, today I went to a family wedding.  My 2nd cousin got married. 

On the tables there was a form to fill out, with questions or notes for you to leave the happy couple.  The last question was:

"Do you have any advice for us?"

This was my answer:

Always remember the happines of this day, and carry it through to all your days.  To quote my favorite movie, Brokeback Mountain,

"It could be like this, just like this, always."


I'm quoting myself, because I did this again at a friend's wedding last weekend.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

This is not a Brokieism, it's a BetterMostism! I have developed the habit of adding the word "FIXED!" at the end of my sentences, thanks to those wacky ABCs players!!

A wild creature got into my mother-in-law's garage, probably the same red fox who suns herself while lying on her back on top of a very large rock, watching me plant a couple of thousand spring bulbs in her garden.

That fox doesn't move unless I come very,very close; she just watches me as if to say 'You gotta problem with this??'

This fox has ATTITUDE.

Today I went over there to plant.........and was rewarded by God.

It stank so badly I could finally use THE quote in an appropriate situation.

So I said, 'Tootie, this goddamned garage smells like cat Piss or worse!'

She got hysterical

My husband bought a GPS. We used it for the first time when we went on our vacation a few weeks ago. My husband asked me to name the GPS system (the female voice in it). His collegue had named the voice Claudia, after the receptionist of their company.
We were driving through our neigbour village when we talked about that. And we drove another way than the GPS suggested. The femal voice continued to say we should drive to the right at the next crossroads. And at the next, and the one after this one, and so on. The female voice just wouldn't shut up.
It was easy then to name it: we now have our own LaShawn  ;D.

     Perfect name Chrissi.  Good job... :laugh: :laugh:

Well, this isn't a "brokieism", but ......

The bank I work for uses this time of year to raise money for March Of Dimes.  They do it by selling paper pumpkins, and call it "pick a pumkin".  Small ones are $1.00, big ones are $5.00.

So, I went into two different branches, and I got 2 big pumpkins, and on one, wrote "Jack Twist" and on the other "Ennis Del Mar" and asked that they be put side by side when they are hung up.

I recently went into the two branches recently, and in both of them, there are the JT and EDM pumpkins, side by side, taped to the wall.

 ;D

Great idea Chuck......

I remember a couple of years ago, Truman (Shakes) wrote about a similar thing.....where people bought pavers or bricks dedicated to someone special....and he bought two for our "special boys"....they were laid on a walkway to a museum or library.....

I cant remember all the details now, except for the wonderful sentimental gesture of it, that needs no explanation where Truman is concerned....

If you are reading this Tru, tell us about it again, and post the pictures again.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection
