A collection of a lifetime of observed humorous incidents and quotations, original humor and wisdom, and perceived enigmas.
Over his 84 years, the author has observed many humorous incidents, heard and read many humorous things and has had many original humorous thoughts. He has also developed a life philosophy which he has summarized into short sayings. For some mysterious reason, he has been able to remember much of this information although his memory is failing in some other respects. He has decided to share all of this before it is too late.
