Laughter



Laughter is the best medicine.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.  ~ E.E. Cummings

What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.  ~ Yiddish Proverb

With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh, I should die.  ~ Abraham Lincoln

Laughter gives us distance.  It allows us from step back from an event, deal with it and move on.  ~ Bob Newhart

So much has been said of laughter; so much has been made of it.  It is so solemnly important.  Thank God we can laugh, and blessed be those who cultivate the most precious harvest of a genuine laugh.

My favorite among those who make me laugh is Bob Newhart.  Have you watched an episode of The Bob Newhart Show lately?  Probably not unless you're a die hard fan like my husband and me.  We can't watch it and not laugh.  I hereby dare you.






We were fortunate enough to meet Bob Newhart, briefly, last year.  What a gracious man.  Very quiet, reserved, and humble.  I don't get all a'flutter over many people these days, but meeting him was quite a thrill and, bless him, he didn't let us down.





 


 

There he is, in the middle.  We took this picture while we were waiting to meet him . . . why no picture of US meeting him ourselves?  Why??  Because his driver, while perfectly adept at driving a luxury vehicle, could not seem to operate a simple camera.  Don't bring it up . . . I'm still trying to laugh at that one.
