The Wellie boots

The "Wellie Boots" 
(Anyone who has ever dressed a child will love this one!) 

Did you hear about the Pre-School teacher who was helping one of the children put on his "Wellie boot's"? 
He asked for help and she could see why.. 
Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little "Wellie's" still didn't want to go on.
By the time they got the second "Wellie" on, she had worked up a sweat. 
She almost cried when the little boy said, "Miss, they're on the wrong feet."
She looked, and sure enough, they were..
It wasn't any easier pulling the "Wellie's" off than it was putting them on..
She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the "Wellie's" back on, this time on the right feet..
He then announced, "These aren't my Wellies."
She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream,
'Why didn't you say so?' like she wanted to.
Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting "Wellie's" off his little feet..
No sooner had they gotten the "Wellie's" off when he said,
"They're my brother's "Wellie's", my mom made me wear 'them.'

Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry.
But, she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the "Wellie's" on his feet again.

Helping him into his coat, she asked, "Now, where are your gloves?"

He said, "I stuffed 'them in the toes of my Wellie's".

She will be eligible for parole in three years!

Exercise for the over 60's

Just my style

  I'm doing this now......

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.

Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.  (I'm at this level.)  
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
