She Has my Vote in 2008 Can I count on You to be in Compliance?

Very eloquently put ... don't you think?

Maxine on 'Driver Safety'. 'I can't use the cell phone in the car. I have to keep my hands free for making gestures.'...

Maxine on 'Housework' 'I do my housework in the nude. It gives me an incentive to clean the mirrors as quickly as possible.'

Maxine on 'Lawn Care' 'The key to a nice-looking

lawn is a good mower. I recommend one who is muscular and shirtless.'

Maxine on 'The Perfect Man' 'All I'm looking for is a guy who'll do what I want, when I want, for as long as I want, and then go away. Or wait nearby, like a Dust Buster, charged up and ready when needed.'

Maxine on 'Technology Revolution' 'My idea of rebooting is kicking somebody in the butt twice.'

Maxine on 'Aging' 'Take every birthday with a grain of salt. This works much better if the salt accompanies a Margarita.'

'I'm telling you ... she's the perfect candidate.'

'The only two things we do with greater frequency in middle age are urinate and attend funerals .'

'The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.'

'To err is human; to forgive, highly unlikely.'

'Do you realize that in about 40 years, we'll have millions of old ladies running around with tattoos and pierced navels?? (Now that's scary!)'

'Money can't buy happiness--but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than a Kia.'

'After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching somewhere . you may be dead.'

Okay, a little levity on the New Year and now on to something much more important...who's bringing the rum to the party? I have the Champagne covered...

Happy New Year Everyone...

My hoppin john is on the stove, the greens are bowlin'. It is smelling like New Years Day in my kitchen!
I think Maxine may be the best candidate... who said I wouldn't vote for a woman? =D

Hey, Sandi, thanks for stopping by & for the well wishes! Love Maxine, she's the best.

I'm making mustard greens & black-eyed peas & cornbread today too. Gotta get the year started off right, you know?!

Happy 2008 to you!

When I first saw the title I thought the post was going to be about Hillary. But Maxine gets my vote every time. Great stuff. Now back to the kitchen I go....working on New Year's Day dinner. Eat lots of collard greens for tons of money this year. :)

Gotta love Maxine!

I've got the blackeye pea's simmering and will warm up a spiral ham and a pot of cabbage and some scalloped potatoes and oh yeah a big ol' pone of cornbread...time to go clean the!

Have a great 2008!

I love Maxine, she's too funny. I love the one that said 40 years from now we'll have old ladies with navel piercing and tatoos. That's a real scary picture. I have a little book of all Maxine. I get it out when I want a good laugh! Happy New Year!

Rick said...

Happy New Year! I wanted to invite you over to my blog because I am having my very first give-away there to celebrate my one year anniversary of blogging. Come on by - I think that you will be glad that you did. It's not a mjor award, but it's fun.

Maxine has my vote twice!! We could use a woman like that in the white house... I guarantee things would get done !! The RIGHT way!!


smilnsigh said...

Yup, you gotta' love that Maxine!!! Wonder who writes 'her'?

Thanks for telling me that you consider my blog page look to be "ding dang spectacular"!! LOL. Yes, 'ding-dang' just doesn't "do it," at times, does it? -evil giggles-


Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

LOL!! What a fun new years post! I just love Maxine. Here is hoping that 2008 brings you everyone of your hearts desires!

Terri Steffes said...

(dryly said) If it is Captain Morgan's rum (with some diet coke, of course) you can count on me!

Vee said...

Maxine's definitely the better female candidate! LOL!!

Hope that your New Year is off to a great start...still wishing for snow? Does that ever happen where you live?
