1. September is Healthy Aging® Month

"Designed to broaden the awareness of the positive aspects of aging and to provide inspiration for adults, ages 50+, to improve their physical, mental, social and financial health."

2. It's National Coupon Month

"Did you know that clipping and organizing coupons for as little as 20 minutes per week can save 20% off your grocery bill? "

3. Got this e-mail today from cousin Judy in Omaha

A drunken cowboy lay sprawled across three
entire seats in the posh Amarillo Theatre.

When the usher came by and noticed this, he
whispered to the cowboy, "Sorry, sir, but you're
only allowed one seat."

The cowboy groaned but didn't budge. The
usher became more impatient: "Sir, if you
don't get up from there I'm going to have to
call the manager."

Once again, the cowboy just groaned. The
usher marched briskly back up the aisle, and
in a moment he returned with the manager.
Together the two of them tried repeatedly to
move the cowboy, but with no success

Finally they summoned the police. The
Ranger surveyed the situation briefly then
asked, "All right buddy what's your name?"

"Sam," the cowboy moaned.
"Where ya all from, Sam?" asked the Ranger.

With terrible pain in his voice, and without moving
a muscle, Sam replied,

"... the balcony..."

The first two here are from the Opinion Digest, a monthly newsletter from mySurvey, I have been doing survey things for them for about 30 years. If you would like to check them out, click. They generally are looking for more participants. IT IS NOT A SCAM.

I have never been drinking anything except Diet Coke in the balcony, so that drunken cowboy wasn't me. [Also, the Texas Rangers don't police Amarillo but Nebraska people might think they do.]

morning Jim,

poor cowboy :(
I think you forgot one important day in September. It doesn't save you any money or really help at all but it's a good day. Today, September 19th, is International Talk Like A Pirate Day! ( I read about in a Dave Barry article)

PS Nice Joke
Wow! Is it a 'how to' article? I would need one of those helps for sure.
Hi Jim. Great joke!

You never did tell us if your favorite team won the ballgame or now????
I always root for the underdog? Question: Did they win this week?
Answer: Not many of my favorites [underdogs] won, for sure not Nebraska or LSU.
hey Jim,

thanks for the visit , and the watering thingy is a Hot air baloon
