Day 1541: Do you like Paraprosdokians?

"plant", I-photo taken at Von's Pavillion while waiting on Irene & John.

The next few day may be a little different ...
I am with artist friends John & Irene for the next few days. 
We rented a house and doing artwork in our new home.
Listen to what we fit in to our first day:
John got in from Seattle at 9:38 AM at LB airport
then on to Belmont shores, & lunch at Open Sesame!
On to Long Beach Museum of Art to see their
"Vitality and Verve in the third dimension" show.

Then to Westminster to Art Supply Warehouse to shop.
Next battled traffic on the 405 & 55 to Newport to pick up keys.

We moved in, 
with lots of art stuff.
No food, just snacks.
We're not here to cook.
Walked to Rudy's for 
chicken wings & burgers.
Lots of photos taken today, but am having trouble uploading, due to my
 limited skills with 
this new laptop ...but
stay tuned, I'll get them to you, eventually.

The adventure continues!

I ♥ Paraprosdokians!

First time I heard about paraprosdokians, I liked them. 
Paraprosdokians are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence 
or phrase is surprising or unexpected & is frequently humorous.

(Winston Churchill loved them).

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.
2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you ... but it's still on my list.
3. Since light travels faster than sound, 
some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
5. We never really grow up -- we only learn how to act in public.
6. War does not determine who is right, only who is left.
7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. 
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. 
To steal from many is research.
9. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
10. In filling out an application, where it says, 
"In case of emergency, notify... " I answered " a doctor."
11. Women will never be equal to men until they can 
walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, 
and still think they are sexy.
12. You do not need a parachute to skydive. 
You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

13. I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.
14. To be sure of hitting the target, 
shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
15. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian, 
any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
16. You're never too old to learn something stupid.
17. I'm supposed to respect my elders, 
but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.


A smile for Friday ...
