“Nothing shakes the smiling heart.”

Santosh Kalwar

I have a full morning today. First I will have breakfast with friends. Next I will be transmitting my Pacemaker history to Medtronics for review. Then todays highlight, brunch with my favorite professional actress where we will catch up on our activities. This afternoon I will work on my hobby, napping.

I will be doing a lot of smiling today I hope you will too.

An enriching action

A smile costs nothing, but gives much.

It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that they can get along without it, and none is so poor, that they can be made rich by it.

A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business and is the countersign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen – for it is something that is of no value to anyone, until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile.

Give them one of yours, as no one needs a smile so much as those who have no more to give.

Morty and Sarah had just returned home from a party. Sarah said, “Do you realize what you did tonight, Morty?”

“No I don’t,” Morty replied, “But I’ll admit I was wrong. What did I do?”


An elderly Jewish lady is leaving the garment district to go home from work.

Suddenly a man who has been walking towards her, stands in front of her, blocks her path, opens up his raincoat and flashes her.

Unruffled, she takes a look and remarks, “This you call a lining?”




Rummaging through her attic, my friend Kathryn found an old shotgun. Unsure about how to dispose of it, she called her parents.

“Take it to the police station,” her mother suggested.  My friend was about to hang up when her mom added, “And Kathryn?”

“Yes, Mom?”

“Call first.”


“I bought a blank tape, took it home and played it at full volume. My neighbor complained. Turns out he’s a mime.”

Beverly was reading a newspaper, while her husband Harry was engrossed in a magazine. Suddenly, she burst out laughing.

“Listen to this,” she said. “There’s a classified ad here where a guy is offering to swap his girl friend for a season ticket to the Red Wings Stadium.”

“Hmmm,” he said, not looking up from his magazine.

Teasing him, Beverly said, “Would you swap me for a season ticket?”

“Absolutely not,” he said.

“How sweet,” Bev said. “Tell me why not.”

“Season’s been cancelled,” he said.


I don’t mind coming to work, but that eight hour wait to go home is a bitch.


I know I need some kind of athletic activity in my life, so I subscribed to a couple of health magazines. There’s nothing better than kicking back with a cigarette, a Budweiser, and Prevention magazine… and reading about what nicotine, alcohol, and obesity will do to me. The anxiety alone raises my heart rate.


Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.

Jill’s car was unreliable and she called John for a ride every time it broke down.  One day John got yet another one of those calls.

“What happened this time?” he asked, with a very exasperated tone.

“My brakes went out,” Jill said.  “Can you come to get me?”

“Where are you?” John asked.

“I’m in the drugstore,” Jill responded.

“And where’s the car?” John asked.

Jill replied…  (barely audible) “It’s in here with me.”


“Smiling is definitely one of the best beauty remedies. If you have a good sense of humor and a good approach to life, that’s beautiful.”

Rashida Jones
