““Boy, I remember on the farm, when we’d get depressed, Grandma could always cheer us up.
She’d take out her dentures and take a healthy swig of the aquarium and then hold a flashlight under a chin,
so we could watch the goldfish swim from cheek to cheek.
Boy, we could have watched them all day, but visiting hours were only from 10 to 4.”’
Make the most of it!”

Somehow I lost them and ended up being chased by the campus police.”
“Your kids can say some cruel things to you at times. For example,
Nicole, Miles and Sofie are standing there in the room and
I’m dressed to kill in my own mind.
They’ll say to me,

If that doesn’t kill a star, I don’t know what does!”
