~ Happy New Year~

 I think each one of us have "Reflections" of what our year was all about and what we want to see in the New Year..

As I traveled about Blogland this past few days I have seen all of you showing all the beautiful and great projects you did in 2011..I ran to my picture file and guess what?? I didn't do one project and complete it in 2011..I lost a whole year of doing nothing but trying to breath and get healthy..During this time I have thought about putting this blog to rest also...But this silly little blog of mine is truly a piece of my heart.I love seeing all my friends and reading all your posts...I love all of you guys, Thanks for being you, Thanks for taking the time out of your busy year and just "popping" in to say Hi!! how you doing Gloria!! Thanks for all your prayers, Thank you God for letting me have another year for a do-overs..As I lift my coffee cup to you I wish you all the very best in 2012...and may you all be just "Happy To Be"
My new quote for 2012
"No one grows old by living, only losing interest in living"

Until next year 
From my mountain to yours

~ Smarter Than Dirt~


George Phillips, an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available" George said,


He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

(True Story)
I LOVE IT! Don't mess with old people.

I hope and pray all of you have a GREAT week...
Until next time from my mountain to yours,
Hugs and smiles Gloria
