The Irrepressible Helen Quinlan, Regency Tower's Resident Angel
Our Helen Quinlan
Helen Quinlan defied description. The gentle nonagenarian with an encyclopedic recall of Regency Tower history was one of our native treasures. Helen had graced previous Regency Tower Directorial Boards with her charm, even-temper, disarmingly sweet disposition, wit and wisdom. A chronic contributor - subject to her time and health - she contributed to Regency Tower's newsletter and web site on a regular basis. Regency Tower's resident “Angel” had also made myriad unrequited contributions to our neighborhood, serving for years as a cornerstone of the Galt Mile Community Association. Her civic conscience was exemplary and her unique wit made knowing Helen a remarkable experience. While Helen often professed her life's “secret” as keeping a healthy sense of humor, her REAL secret was that she didn't reflect light... she created it. On July 26, 2006, as angels are apt to do, Helen returned to heaven. This page, however, will remain as a small part of Helen's legacy to her friends, neighbors and home.

♫ Anyway - Heeeere's HELEN! ♥

Sing While You Drive

  • At 45 miles per hour,
    SING: “Highways are Happy Ways”
  • At 55 miles per hour,
    SING: “I’m But a Stranger Here, Heaven is My Home”
  • At 65 miles per hour,
    SING: “Nearer My God to Thee”
  • At 75 miles per hour,
    SING: “When the Roll is Called Up Yonder, I’ll be There”
  • At 85 miles per hour,
    SING: “Lord, I’m Coming Home”

You know you’ve had too much coffee when:

    • you can type sixty words a minute with your feet;
    • you chew on other people’s fingernails;
    • you go to sleep just so you can wake up and smell the coffee;
    • you’re the employee of the month at Starbucks, and you don’t even work there!

Stale Mate

      • He wooed her with cocktails, Champagne and wine.
        Took her to all the best places to dine.
      • Out to the races, into ballets,
        Symphonies, concerts, movies and plays.
      • But now that they’re married and he has a spouse,
        She has a husband who won’t leave the house.

Recently Overheard:

My husband bought me a mood ring the other day.

When I’m in a good mood, it turns green.

When I’m in a bad mood, it leaves a red mark on his forehead.


Helen’s Credo

      • Give me a sense of humor, Lord.
      • Give me the wit to see a joke.
      • To get some humor out of life,
      • And pass it on to other folk.

Question

"How well do you handle changes in your life?"

It is not enough to merely recognize the need for change. We must welcome it and encourage it. Yes, change is difficult and the older we get, the more difficult it is to change. We need people to do new things and we need people to do some of the old things in new ways. WHAT we change, HOW we change, WHERE we change, WHEN we change all help us to be grateful for those things that always seem to remain the same.

Two blonds living in Oklahoma were sitting on a bench talking.

One blond says to the other, "Which do you think is farther away... Florida or the moon?"

The other blond turns and says, "Hellooooooooo, can you see Florida... ?????"


For years I had been telling my friend Pete that he ate too much fast food, but he always denied it.

One day he admitted I was right. "What changed your mind?"

"My grandson. When my daughter told him I was coming to visit, he asked, 'Grandpa from Florida, or Grandpa from Pizza Hut?'"


Last year I replaced several windows in my house and they were the expensive double-pane energy efficient kind.  But this week I got a call from the contractor complaining that his work has been completed for a whole year and I had yet to pay for them.  Boy oh boy, did we go 'round.  Just because I'm blonde doesn’t mean that I am automatically stupid.  So, I proceeded to tell him just what his fast talking sales guy had told me last year....that in one year the windows would pay for themselves.  There was silence on the other end of the line so I just hung up and I haven’t heard back.  Guess I must have won that silly argument.

A policeman spotted a woman driving and knitting at the same time.

Driving alongside her car, he shouted out the window, "Pull over!"

"No," she shouted back, "a pair of socks!"

The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat.  Luckily, Columbus was carrying his "DISCOVER CARD."

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, “Why is the bride dressed in white?”

“Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.” The child thought about this for a moment, then said, “So why is the groom wearing black?”

There are a lot of folks who can’t understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in "America".

Well, there’s a very simple answer.  Nobody bothered to check the oil.

We just didn’t know we were getting low. The reason for that is purely geographical.

All our oil is in Alaska, Texas, California and Oklahoma.

All our "dipsticks" are in Washington, D.C.

"Young man, where do you work?" the judge asked the defendant.

"Here and there," said the man.

"What do you do for a living?"

"This and that."

"Take him away," said the judge.

The mans said, "Wait a minute! When will I get out?"

The judge replied, "Sooner or later."

A man was visiting an Assisted Living Home. While he was there, a bell rang out very loudly. He asked the attendant "if that was the fire bell?" The attendant said, "no", it’s the dinner bell. We have 2 lines: "CANE" and "ABLE."

You’re not as young as you used to be.......but....Your not as old as you’re going be.....So watch it.

Do not resent growing old. Many are denied the PRIVILEGE.

Take the Time

He hadn’t time to pen a note

He hadn’t time to cast a vote

He hadn’t time to sing a song

He hadn’t time to love or give

He hadn’t time to really live

From now on he’ll have time on end

He died today, my "busy" friend.

A man asked the Judge what the penalty is for bigamy. The Judge said, "2 mothers-in-law, what else?"

Should you hapen to find a misteak in this publication, pleese consider that it was plased their for a reasun.

We publish something for everyone and some people are always looking for mistakes. Just keeping you happy.

A man came into the doctor's office with both ears badly burned.

"I was ironing some shirts and I had the telephone sitting on the ironing board," he explained.

"When the phone rang, I picked up the iron by mistake and put it to my ear. And to make it worse, the call turned out to be a wrong number."

"But how did you burn the other ear?" asked the doctor.

"The dumbbell called back again," said the man.

Senior Citizens are the nations leading carriers of Aids!

    • Hearing Aids
    • Band Aids
    • Rolaids
    • Walking Aids
    • Medical Aids
    • Government Aids
    • Most of all, monetary aid to their kids!

I BELIEVE

  • that we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

  • that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

  • that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

  • that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done regardless of the consequences.

  • that sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

  • that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
