    Old People are Beautiful – Grandma letter to elementary school.

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Fw: Fw: Old People are Beautiful – Grandma letter to elementary school.

    This heart-warming story may have been around before but it’s worth reading again for it’s lesson on life.

    *Old People are Beautiful*
    When we get older we think differently. This letter was sent to
    the Principal’s office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the
    elderly. An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door
    prize and was writing to say thank you. This story is a credit to all
    humankind, especially if you are familiar with the elderly. Forward to
    anyone you know who might need a lift today.

    Dear Kean Elementary, God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at
    your recent senior citizens luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the
    Springer Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all
    alone now and it’s nice to know that someone is thinking of me. God
    bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady.

    My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio, but before I
    received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was
    napping. The other day her radio fell off the night stand and broke
    into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. Her distress
    over the broken radio touched me and I knew this was God’s way of
    answering my prayers. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I
    told her to kiss my ass.

    Thank you for that opportunity.

    Sincerely,
    Agnes

    Photographing a town that never was 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Fw: Photographing a town that never was

    Artist and photographer Michael Paul Smith has spent hours upon hours photographing one special town that he holds very dear to his heart. There is something that always drew him to it, and the images he created are simple, but stunning. They glow with small-town charm and innocence, reminiscent of days and decades past.

    The town he photographs is quaint and beautiful.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation

    It’s like each picture tells a story of how life used to be in the United States .

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-black-white

    There’s not much going on in these pictures, but it’s obvious that this town is nothing but charm.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-winter

    But, as it turns out, also not real.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-snow

    Michael builds custom miniature models and sets, meticulously crafting every detail.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-Michael-Paul-Smith

    Then, the 60 year-old photographer creates the hyper-realistic images.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-garage

    If you didn’t know any better, you might think these are vintage photos of a town from a few decades ago…

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-ice-truck

    And NOT the extremely small models this man built.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-park

    He started building these models as an exercise. He wanted to practice his craft and also photography.

    cool-miniature-town-green-cars-photographer-recreation

    He never imagined it would be a “dream-like reconstruction” of the town he grew up in.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-gas-station

    To Michael, this is what quintessential America looked like when he was a kid.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-mechanic

    It is absolutely beautiful.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-shop

    If “ ElginPark ” were a real town, I would love to live there.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-trucks

    He creates the scenes by setting up Danbury Mint and Franklin Mint die cast autos and trucks in front of his models on card tables.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-mountains

    Then, he uses the surrounding scenery to make the backgrounds for the photos.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-neighborhood

    The perspective has to be JUST right…

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-house

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-buildings

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-wet

    Usually the resulting photos are completely convincing.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-lights

    Even when you know what’s going on behind the scenes.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-reflection

    It’s all an illusion.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-sunset

    But Michael is able to make an incredibly convincing one.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-lamp

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-Orbit

    His selfies aren’t part of the official photo series, but I think they just add to the charm of his work.

    cool-miniature-town-cars-photographer-recreation-creator

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Best Joke of the year !!

    NOMINATED AS THE BEST JOKE OF THE YEAR
    A Russianarrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States . It’s 11:00 AM on a Wednesday.

    He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me come into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!"

    The passerby says, "You are mistaken, I am a Mexican."

    The man goes on and encounters another passerby. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America ."

    The person says, "I not American, I Chinese ."

    The new arrival walks farther, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand, and says, "Thank you for this wonderful America !


    That person puts up his hand and says,
    "I am from Middle East. I am not American."

    He finally sees a nice lady and asks, "Are you an American?"
    She says, "No, I am from Africa .."

    Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"

    The African lady checks her watch and says:

    "Probably at work."

    IF YOU DON’T PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS, BY TOMORROW, YOU WILL RECEIVE THREE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ABSOLUTELY FREE.

    Wh ile I sat in the reception area of my doctor’s office, a woman rolled an elderly man in a wheelchair into the room. As she went to the receptionist’s desk, the man sat there, alone and silent. Just as I was thinking I should make small talk with him, a little boy slipped off his mother’s lap and walked over to the wheelchair. Placing his hand on the man’s, he said, I know how you feel. My Mom makes me ride in the stroller too..’
    *****
    As I was nursing my baby, my cousin’s six-year-old daughter, Krissy, came into the room. Never having seen anyone breast feed before, she was intrigued and full of all kinds of questions about what I was doing.
    After mulling over my answers, she remarked, ‘My mom has some of those, but I don’t think she knows how to use them..’
    *****
    Out bicycling one day with my eight-year-old Granddaughter, Carolyn, I got a little wistful. ‘In ten years,’ I said, ‘you’ll want to be with your friends and you won’t go walking, biking, and swimming with me like you do now.
    Carolynshrugged. ‘In ten years you’ll be too old to do all those things anyway.’
    ******

    Working as a pediatric nurse, I had the difficult assignment of giving immunization shots to children..
    One day, I entered the examining room to give four-year-old Lizzie her needle. ‘No, no, no!’ she screamed. ‘Lizzie,’ scolded her mother, ‘that’s not polite behavior.’ With that, the girl yelled even louder, ‘No, thank you! No, thank you!
    ******
    On the way back from a Cub Scout meeting, my grandson innocently said to my son, ‘Dad, I know babies come from mommies’ tummies, but how do they get there in the first place?’ After my son hemmed and hawed awhile, my grandson finally spoke up in disgust, ‘You don’t have to make up something, Dad. It’s okay if you don’t know the answer.’
    *****
    Just before I was deployed to Iraq , I sat my eight-year-old son down and broke the news to him. ‘I’m going to be away for a long time,’ I told him. ‘I’m going to Iraq ..’ ‘Why?’ he asked. ‘Don’t you know there’s a war going on over there?’
    *****
    PaulNewman founded the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
    for children stricken with cancer, AIDS, and bloodDiseases. One afternoon, he and is wife, JoanneWoodward, stopped by to have lunch with the kids. A counselor at a nearby table, suspecting the young patients wouldn’t know Newman was a famous movie star, explained, that’s the man who made this camp possible. Maybe you’ve seen his picture on his salad dressing bottle?’ Blank stares. ‘Well, you’ve probably seen his face on his lemonade carton.’ An eight-year-old girl perked up. ‘How long was he missing?’

    … And my personal favorite ..God’s Problem Now:

    His wife’s graveside service was just barely finished, when there was a massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance. The little, old man looked at the pastor and calmly said, "Well, she’s there."

    A smile – is a sign of joy.
    A hug – is a sign of love.
    A laugh – is a sign of happiness.
    And a friend like me?-Well that’s just a sign of good taste!

    Â
    We’ll be friends until I am senile.
    Then we’ll beNEWfriends
