    however, I just hope I never end up saying things like, "line up in a circle now, kids..."

    thanks for the great collection.

    I guess Yogi Berra wins the prize for saying the goofiest things. Like, "OK, Guys.
    Pair off by threes."

    And "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded." He does say, however,
    that he really didn't say all those things he said.

    I once had a boss who was giving us info on the upcoming office
    picknic. He said, "So we'll meet here at the office and then combine
    the cars."

    And one of the secretaries was looking at some snapshots from Hawaii.
    She held up a photo of a gorgeous sunset and proclaimed, "Wow!
    This would make a great picture."

    I'm getting more and more Alzheirmery myself. Last night I took Zippy for a
    walk. Bumped into a hedge. I said, "Look, Zippy. Daddy ran into a bridge."

    Thanks for posting this, Jim.

    Rock, my memory is bad, too. I was working on the computer yesterday, and my cable internet went "poof." I forgot to pay the bill :(
