Lighten up, people!

"Laughter is a gift everyone should open." Allen Klein

I am in a new phase of life.

I am planning on laughing more often.

Enough with all of the seriousness around us.  I feel bombarded with the news of shootings, bombings, hatred, financial stresses, government issues, etc. etc. etc. I have an ipad, and iphone and a television with news 24/7 as well as 800+ channels to watch anything and everything that I desire.

I want to lighten up and save the stress and worry for the really serious things that may come my way. 

The rest?.....I want to laugh my way through them.

So here is a joke that I received in an email the other day.....have a laugh on me!

A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall.They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

The boy asked, 'What is this Father?'
The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, 'Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is.'

While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a very large, elderly lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.
They continued to watch until it reached the last number… and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order.

Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.

The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son.....

'Go get your Mother'
