*laughter is good for the soul

A good, real, unrestrained, hearty laugh is a sort of glorified internal massage, performed rapidly and automatically.  It manipulates and revitalizes corners and unexplored crannies of the system that are unresponsive to most other exercise methods.  ~Author unknown, from an editorial in New-York Tribune, quoted in Quotations for Special Occasions by Maud van Buren

 Laughter is an instant vacation.  ~Milton Berle

 What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.  ~Yiddish Proverb

 Laughter gives us distance.  It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.  ~Bob Newhart

 Remember, men need laughter sometimes more than food.  ~Anna Fellows Johnston

I know this picture looks a bit crude... and I am sorry, but these two are like brother and sister and they were laughing it up to the highest! 

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Prov 17:22
