    I had never heard it before and I'm cracking up here. Thanks so much. I needed that.

    And after mine got through her own organ recital, she then started on all the relatives various illnesses. I gave my husband explicit instructions that he was not to say a word to her about any illness or operation I had as I didn't want it going out on the relative organ hotline. Because besides the recital, you also got her "expert" opinion on how wrong all the doctors were as well. I wasn't aware she even had a medical degree.

    I first saw the term "organ recital" in Sam Levenson's Everything But Money (published in 1966), but I have no idea if it is original to him.

    Probably Shakespeare or one of his dusty buddies?


    I hate it when something gets stuck in my head and I can't move on. Here is what I just learned:

    Nothing is new under the sun, Ecclesiastes 1:9 - The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

    See? A dusty biblical reference!

    Well you might have to wait about 5 years but yes, we are serious. No sense in sitting around here waiting for social security to not be available to us when we retire. Hubby was born here but his parents are from Mexico so he's a dual citizen. We can own land there without fear of it being taken from the banks. When we finally head down there to search out where we want to settle, I'll post pictures and everyone will be welcome. A few hours of work each day, long walks on the beach and plenty of drinks in the sun!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I have to tell this. My husband absolutely loves to discuss his poor health. Doesn't matter if he knows the person or not. When I was in the hospital he was there daily and everyone who walked in the room got a run down on his ailments, what his parents died from and the whole bit. If my sons had been there they would have ridden him out of there on a rail. They just hate that he does that.

    Newf, I well remember seeing Sam Levinson on tv and remember how funny he was.

    Lol, your husband likes to talk about his poor health and mine likes to pretend it isn't happening! He will change the subject every time I bring something up.... out of sight out of mind for him!
