Forty to Sixty-Two All in One Day
Him: “I get a little dizzy and have to stop and rest.”
Me: “Oh, I get that too. I have spells of vertigo.”
Him: “ You must be half my age.”
Me: “I don’t think so. How old do you think I am?”
Me: “Oh, THANK YOU! You made my day!” I give him a hug!
Him: “How old are you?”
Me: “I turned sixty in January.”
Him: “Hmm . . . I don’t know. Maybe it’s your make-up?”
Me: "How old are you?"
Him: "I'm eighty three."
Me: “Well, you have a good day now. Thanks again.”
Me: “Oh gee, miss it by two years.”
Him: “Just go to the window, hand them your stub and tell them you’re a senior.”
Me: “Really, you sure?”
Him: “Yeah, go ahead. I’m not saying anything.”
Me: Handing my ticket to the young trainee with an older man looking on, “senior.”
He slips it into a slot and pushes down. He hands me back my ticket and I leave.
The next day I go to pick up Paul, go to the window, hand my ticket, “senior”.
The woman says, “Are you leaving soon?” I told her I was just waiting for my husband to come down.
I put the stub into my jacket pocket and as I turn he is being wheeled down. I go to help him with the sneakers I brought, (one of his shoes was lost the day before) then stand, turn to head for the door, I’m being called to. “Mam, you need to pay for your parking.” “Oh.” I go over to the machines, place my stub in the slot and it says, $1.00. “ Oh crap I’m thinking. I never paid last night. Oh well . . . The gate had gone up and I got out . . . lol

Clip A Dollar for Epilepsy
Dear Hodgepodge Readers,
After meeting Sister Jane and speaking to Elizabeth I knew with just the littlest of help from others, together we could make a change. $30 a month sponsors a child. Yes, I know most can't afford that, but how about only $1 on any given Sunday at your place of worship? That would mean that if only 8 people give at a service, that by the end of the month $32 would be donated for a child!!! You can do that! Together WE CAN DO THAT!!
*and a hug from my David. Some of you know just how special that hug is!!! (See HP 4/29/05 -The Meeting)

Straw Bale Gardens
"Straw Bale Gardening is simply a different type of container gardening. The main difference is that the container is the straw bale itself and is held together with two or three strings. Once the straw inside the bale begins to decay the straw becomes "conditioned" compost that creates an extraordinary plant rooting environment. Getting the straw bales conditioned is an essential part of the process, and should be started by the first week in May for most parts of the country. This gardening technique works anywhere in the country or the world for that matter."
