  It is great to have friends when one is young,
   but indeed it is still more so when you are
   getting old.  When we are young friends are,
   like everything else, a matter of course.
   In the old days we know what it means to have them.

  Finish every day and be done with it.
  You have done what you could;
  some blunders and absurdities crept in;
  forget them as soon as you can.
  Tomorrow is a new day;
  You shall begin it serenely and
  with too high a spirit to be encumbered
  with your old nonsense.
                   -Ralph Waldo Emerson

 While attending a marriage seminar on communication,
 Jim and his wife listened to the instructor declare:
 "It is essential that husbands and wives know the
 things that are important to each other."

 He addressed the men:
 "For instance, gentlemen, can you name your wife's
 favorite flower?"

 Jim  leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and
 whispered, "Pillsbury All-Purpose, isn't it?"

 The rest of the story is not pleasant.
 The end.
