Inside the Mind of Isadora


I’ve been thinking of infusing a little humor on my blog because there’s been so much tragedy in the news lately. Summer is coming to an end. The autumn weather will soon bring cooler temperatures. Those living in areas where the climates are cooler will settle in and need a boost of humor to keep their spirits up.  If you’ve been following me for some time you know I live in Florida. There are a great many elderly people who reside here. A few of them have become close friends despite the age difference. I’m quite used to their sense of humor about aging and being elderly. This was sent to me by one of those friends. I hope you enjoy without taking offense.

If you have a joke you’d like to share, create a post on your blog and leave the url with your comment.                                              Thank you for smiling today …



An old geezer, who’d been a farmer for a long time, became very bored with it and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said:

Dr. Geezer’s clinic. “Get your treatment for $500, if you’re not cured you get back $1,000.”

Doctor Young, who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000.

He decided to go to Dr. Geezer’s clinic.

This is what transpired:

Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I’ve lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?”
Dr. Geezer:  “Nurse, please bring medicine from box #22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.”

Dr. Young: “Aaagh !!! ”That’s Gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young is annoyed but goes back after a couple of days figuring he’d try to recover his money.

Dr Young:  “I’ve lost my memory, I cannot remember anything. Can you please help me?”

Dr. Geezer:  “Nurse, please bring medicine from box #22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Doctor Young:  “Oh no you don’t.  That’s Gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer:  “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young: (after having lost $1000, by now) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.”

Dr. Young:  “Doctor, my eyesight has become weak I can hardly see!”

Dr. Geezer:  “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so – “Here’s your $1000 back.”

Dr. Young:  “But, Doctor, this is only $500…”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations!  You got your vision back!  That will be $500.


Moral of story  —  Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an old “Geezer ” !!!!

Nurture Yourself – Love your LIFE

Nurture Love your Life.web

  Too often, we focus on the negative things in our lives.

We lose sight of the wonderful things we do have.

We take for granted those we see everyday because they’re there.

To get around that, I have a 3 hugs a day for 15 seconds rule.

It’s unexpected when given at a spontaneous moment.

It nurtures you by filling you with unimpeded pure love.

It helps those you LOVE know you love them.

And, makes you appreciate that you are loved in return.

Love is in the Air


Like the Sun and the Moon

Like the sun
You heal me and,
help me to see.
Like the moon
You comfort me,
allow me to sleep.
Like the sun and the moon,
When you enter my room,
there is light, there is peace
there is love.

Heart - isn't it romantic

Happy Valentine’s Day !!!!


Love is in the Air

ts[1]            Who’s on your Valentine list?

                                   Do you have a sweetie?  

                         Valentine Day is February 14. This year, it falls on a Friday. It looks like there’s going to be a little more pressure on everyone due to that. Restaurants will be a bit more crowded and weekend vacation spots booked.

                          Today, the occasion has evolved to include flowers, dinner, confections along with the traditional greeting cards.

                            Valentine Day can create a bit of sadness for those who have lost a loved one or who haven’t found one to make their own but no one said a sweetie had to have two legs.

                               It’s time to think outside the box. Let’s see some creative posts on how you will be celebrating this special day.

   Decisions … Decisions – what to do?

                            St. Valentine’s Day started as a liturgical celebration of Christian saints named Valentinus. Today, the day is associated with romantic love.  During the Middle Ages, when courtly love flourished, lovers penned notes expressing their love for each other.

A popular hagiographical account of Saint Valentine of Rome states that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.

According to legend, during his imprisonment, he healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius. An embellishment to this story states that before his execution he wrote her a letter signed “Your Valentine” as a farewell.[3]

Today, Saint Valentine’s Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion,[4] as well as in the Lutheran Church.[5] The Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrates Saint Valentine’s Day, albeit on July 6th and July 30th, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna (modern Terni). In Brazil, the Dia de São Valentim is recognized on June 12. Information from Wikipedia

         To get our Valentine Week countdown started, I’ll add a few ideas and poems for you until Valentine’s Day.

                      Wouldn’t it be a wonderful if we did nice things for each other all year?

           Happy Valentine’s Day !!!

Pondering from Mabel

Grandma Rockin'Pondering from Mabel ….

It looks like quite a few folks are finding out I’ve moved from the farm into this new assisted living place. My Fred would not have been happy. He was a country man. He loved to watch the corn growing and the smell of freshly cut grass.

I’ve been trying to unpack my boxes. It’s been a little much for me. There are lots of memories in each one.

And, the dang phone keeps ringing. My daughter, Tessa, came by and brought me one of them new fancy message machines. She told I had to record a message and left me to decide what I wanted to say. I think I came up with a real good one.
Here’s my message:

I am not available right now,
Thank you for caring enough to call.
I am making
some changes in my life.
Please leave a message
after the beep.
If I don’t return your call,
You’re one of those changes.

Into each life a little humor shall enter …
Mabel’s way

Come back and see what else I’ve been ponderings ….

Pondering from Mabel

Grandma Rockin'Pondering from Mabel ….

My young daughter, Tessa, found this very nice assisted living facility for me. Bless her heart. I have to admit I wasn’t happy about leaving the farmhouse Fred and I lived in for 40 years. Oh, this place is nice enough but there aren’t any memories here.
She said it would help take away some of her concerns about my safety. They thought of everything here. There is a dining hall, tennis courts, walking and bicycle paths, swimming pool, exercise facility plus arts and crafts. Each room in my place is equipped with buttons on the wall for emergencies. You know, ‘I’ve fallen and I can’t get up’ buttons.

Tessa still calls and is fussing every day.

She wants to know if I’ve joined any groups.

Have I made any friends?

Am I pleased with the food they serve?

I think she’s a bit of a worrier.

The next time Tessa called I was ready. I told her I had thought about her concerns and decided to go over to that recreation center and sign up for something. I told her I had joined a group. She was tickled pink and wanted to know what it was.

I said, “It’s a skydiving group”.

“Mother, she exclaimed. You’re 84 years old. Why would you join a skydiving group? It’s dangerous. You can’t jump out of planes.”

Oh my, I said. And I’ve signed up for 7 lessons with this mile high club”.


I guess I’ve gone a little too far.

A Fairytale about Cinderella … Watch What You Ask For

Cinderella was now 75 years old. After a fulfilling life with the now dead Prince, she happily sat upon her rocking chair, watching the world go by from her front porch, with a cat called Alan for companionship.

One sunny afternoon, out of nowhere, appeared the Fairy Godmother. Cinderella said “Fairy Godmother, what are you doing here after all these years?”

The Fairy Godmother replied, “Well, Cinderella, since you have lived a good, wholesome life since we last met, I have decided to grant you three wishes. Is there anything for which your heart still yearns?”

Cinderella is overjoyed, and after some thoughtful consideration and almost under her breath she uttered her first wish:

“I wish I was wealthy beyond comprehension.”

Instantly, her rocking chair was turned into solid gold.

Cinderella was stunned. Alan, her old faithful cat, jumped off her lap and scampered to the edge of the porch, quivering with fear.

Cinderella said, “Oh thank you, Fairy Godmother!”
The Fairy Godmother replied, “It’s the least I can do. What does your heart wish for your second wish?”

Cinderella looked down at her frail body, and said, “I wish I were young and full of the beauty of youth again.”

At once, her wish became reality, and her beautiful youthful visage returned.

Cinderella felt stirrings inside her that had been dormant for years and long forgotten vigor and vitality began to course through her very soul.

Then the Fairy Godmother again spoke. “You have one more wish, what will you have?” Cinderella looked over to the frightened cat in the corner and said, “I wish you to transform Alan my old cat into a beautiful, and handsome young man.”

Magically, Alan suddenly underwent so fundamental a change in his biological make-up, that when complete he stood before her, a boy, so beautiful the like of which she nor the world had ever seen, so fair indeed that birds begun to fall from the sky at his feet.

The Fairy Godmother again spoke. “Congratulations, Cinderella. Enjoy your new life.” And, with a blazing shock of bright blue electricity, she was gone.

For a few eerie moments, Alan and Cinderella looked into each other’s eyes. Cinderella sat, breathless, gazing at the most stunningly perfect boy she had ever seen.

Then Alan walked over to Cinderella, who sat transfixed in her rocking chair, and held her close in his young muscular arms.

He leaned in close to her ear, whispered, blowing her golden hair with his warm breath, “I bet you regret having me neutered now, don’t you?

I have some thoughts no one seems to be able to answer ….

1. Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat? Are we supposed to like it burnt? Someone said it helps a sour stomach. Hah … they can’t fool me.

2. What disease did cured ham actually have? And … why are we eating it? I hope it isn’t contagious.

3. Why does a round pizza come in a square box? I think they’re trying to test our intelligence. Hah … I fooled them. I purchase one slice at a time.

4. If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat? I’ll bet he wasn’t a professor after all.

5. If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from? Babies are nice and smooth. I’m off to soak in baby oil.

I have some things I’ve been ‘Pondering’

1. Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?
I guess that’s why many people pick out the clothes they want to be buried in. I notice serviceman like to wear their uniforms. Assuming you’re going to heaven, is there a need for security there?

2. Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune? I was confused while singing it in the shower one day. Yes, I sing in the shower.
Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

3. Why do doctors leave the room while you change? I know as we age we can be a frightening sight. But, aren’t they going to see you naked anyway???

4. Why is it that people say they ‘slept like a baby’ when babies wake up like every two hours? I notice sleeping isn’t what it used to be. I’m awake more. Am I turning into a baby again?

You know, now that I’m older. . . Time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.
