||Funy lines and things

On the local Christian radio station Jimmy Needham had some bad timing on his song “hurricane” which states ‘I need You like a hurricane/Thunder crashing wind and rain’.
At work my boss strongly suggests that I add pliers to my stock pile of things on my pockets. Well perhaps stockpile is a bad word for it but I do carry my keys, knife, and wallet with me wherever I go. Yesterday I was at a wedding and my cousin comes up and asks me: “do you have some cards”? I very politely answered no. later that afternoon a relative by law approached me and asked me the same thing (by now I was wondering if I had an alter ego who ran a casino) and again I replied no and asked her do I look like I have a deck of cards. She and my cousin who was standing near by both answered in unison “yes!”. So question for you who read this: what should I carry around with me?
In honor of the final game being played at Yankee stadium today I have a list of one of the most famous quotes by a Yankee, Yogi Berra:
o This is like deja vu all over again."
o "You can observe a lot just by watching."
o "He must have made that before he died." -- Referring to a Steve McQueen movie.
o "I want to thank you for making this day necessary." -- On Yogi Berra Appreciation Day in St. Louis in 1947.
o "I'd find the fellow who lost it, and, if he was poor, I'd return it." -- When asked what he would do if he found a million dollars.
o "You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there."
o "I knew I was going to take the wrong train, so I left early."
o "If you don't know where you are going, you will wind up somewhere else."
o "If you can't imitate him, don't copy him."
o "You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six."
o "Baseball is 90% mental -- the other half is physical."
o "It was impossible to get a conversation going; everybody was talking too much."
o "Slump? I ain't in no slump. I just ain't hitting."
o "A nickel isn't worth a dime today."
o "Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded."
o "It gets late early out there." -- Referring to the bad sun conditions in left field at the stadium.
o "Glen Cove." -- Referring to Glenn Close on a movie review television show.
o Once, Yogi's wife Carmen asked, "Yogi, you are from St. Louis, we live in New Jersey, and you played ball in New York. If you go before I do, where would you like me to have you buried?" Yogi replied, "Surprise me."
o "Do you mean now?" -- When asked for the time.
o "I take a two hour nap, from one o'clock to four."
o "If you come to a fork in the road, take it."
o "You give 100 percent in the first half of the game, and if that isn't enough in the second half you give what's left."
o "90% of the putts that are short don't go in."
o "I made a wrong mistake."
o "Texas has a lot of electrical votes." -- During an election campaign, after George Bush stated that Texas was important to the election.
o "Thanks, you don't look so hot yourself." -- After being told he looked cool.
o "I always thought that record would stand until it was broken."
o "Yeah, but we're making great time!" -- In reply to "Hey Yogi, I think we're lost."
o "If the fans don't come out to the ball park, you can't stop them."
o "Why buy good luggage? You only use it when you travel."
o "It's never happened in the World Series competition, and it still hasn't."
o "How long have you known me, Jack? And you still don't know how to spell my name." -- Upon receiving a check from Jack Buck made out to "bearer."
o "I'd say he's done more than that." -- When asked if first baseman Don Mattingly had exceeded expectations for the current season.
o "The other teams could make trouble for us if they win."
o "He can run anytime he wants. I'm giving him the red light." -- On the acquisition of fleet Ricky Henderson.
o "I never blame myself when I'm not hitting. I just blame the bat, and if it keeps up, I change bats. After all, if I know it isn't my fault that I'm not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?"
o "It ain't the heat; it's the humility."
o "The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase."
o "You should always go to other people's funerals; otherwise, they won't come to yours."
o "I didn't really say everything I said."

Some of those are quite amusing. Below is my favorite.(I know I'm mean.:D)
"Thanks, you don't look so hot yourself." -- After being told he looked cool.
As for what to carry around in your pockets- always have cash on hand.
I wouldn't recommend carrying change around in your pockets-it weighs you down. I can't think of anything else you should carry around in your pockets,I only carry around my wallet so that's all the advice I can give.:)
