And for the new year... A few one liners...


My new year resolution for 2021 is to stop procrastinating... I'm going to start tomorrow!

Actually, I was planning to quit all my bad habits this year, but then I remembered, nobody likes a quitter.

My wife still hasn't told me what my New Year's resolutions are.

I'm also planning to lose 10 pounds this year.... Only 15 more to go.

If 2020 was a person, I'd sue him for pain and suffering!

I watched them "Drop the Ball" in Times Square this year to remind me of what happened to us in 2020.

Now that it's 2021, we all have 2020 hindsight.

With all the "testing" going on in 2020, I started off the new year by taking an IQ test. The results were negative.

Which band should you listen to on new years day for a chance at good luck in the new year? The Black Eyed Peas.

If you're born in September, its pretty safe to assume your parents started out the New Year with a bang!

Old Pilot Flying Quotations


The difference between fear and terror: fear is when your calculations show you may not have enough fuel to make it to your destination. Terror is when you realize you were right.

"Mommy, I want to grow up and be a pilot." " Honey, you canít do both."

When you see a tree in the clouds, itís not good news.

Aviationís greatest invention was the relief tube.

The older I get, the better pilot I was.

Takeoffs are optional, landings are mandatory.

Pilots - looking down on people since 1903.

There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. Unfortunately, no pilot knows exactly what they are.

You can only tie the record for flying low.

Flying is the art of learning to throw yourself at the ground - and miss.

Optimists invented the airplane. Pessimists invented the parachute.

Scientific fact: the rings of Saturn are composed of lost airline luggage.

I was 14 when I wanted to be a pilot. Iím now 80 and still want to be a pilot, but Iíd rather be 14 again.

Icarus could have flown if heíd picked a cloudy day.

As George Carlin said, ďIf black boxes survive crashes, why donít they make the whole airplane out of that stuff?

Soldier to a pilot: ďWhy didnít you join the Army?Ē Pilotís answer, ďI found out that good food and clean sheets were readily available on nearby Air Force bases.Ē

ďRogerĒ - a term used by pilots when they canít figure out what else to say.

Beer was invented to make pilot stories more interesting.

You canít fly unless you can land, but you canít land unless you can fly. So, which is it?

Black boxes may be replacing pilots, but pilots can be maintained easily and produced by unskilled labor.

A big-city lawyer was representing the railroad in a lawsuit filed by an old rancher. The rancher's prize bull was missing from the section through which the railroad passed. The rancher only wanted to be paid the fair value of the bull. The case was scheduled to be tried before the justice of the peace in the back room of the local general store.

On the day of the trail, the lawyer for the railroad immediately cornered the rancher and tried to get him to settle out of court. The lawyer did his best selling job, and finally the rancher agreed to take the cash offer with the understanding that neither party could "back out" of the settlement.

After the rancher had signed the release and took the check, the young lawyer couldn't resist gloating a little over his success, telling the rancher, "You know, I hate to tell you this, old man, but I put one over on you in there. I couldn't have won the case. The engineer was asleep and the fireman was in the caboose when the train went through your ranch that morning. I didn't have one witness to put on the stand. I duped you!"

The old rancher replied, "Well, I'll tell you, young feller, I was a little worried about winning that case myself, because that bull came home this morning.

Never lie to your kids


I make it a point never to lie to my kids. This morning one of them came up to me and asked, "Where do little babies come from?" And I gave him a straight answer: "Sheer carelessness son! Sheer carelessness!"

Little old lady scam...


A man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him...

She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease, it's just that you look so much like my late son."

He answered, "That's okay".

"I know it's silly, but if you'd call out "Goodbye Mum" as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy".

She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mother". The little old lady waved and smiled back at him.

Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, he went to pay for his groceries. "That comes to $121.85", said the clerk.

"How come so much. I only bought bread and milk?"

The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd pay for her things, too".

I've always felt that Taylor Swift is best watched with the sound turned off.
