~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Our best successes often come after our greatest disappointments. - Henry Ward Beecher

You Alone

Whoever you are, there is some younger person who thinks you are perfect.

There is some work that will never be done if you don't do it.

There is someone who would miss you if you were gone.

There is a place that you alone can fill."

By Jacob M. Braude

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

"After you've heard two eyewitness accounts of an auto accident it makes you wonder about history."

"The child had his mother's eyes, his mother's nose and his mother's mouth. Which left his mother with a pretty blank expression." - Robert Benchley

Never kiss the hand of a lady after she's been to a self-service gas station.

I was going to call my new book 'Being Decisive', but then I changed my mind.

The company I used to work for was one big happy family. And that was because they hired all their relatives.

I always wanted a dog called General .... so when I throw a stick I can say, Brigadier, General!'

Curious when I found two black-and-white negatives in a drawer, I had them made into prints. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were of a younger, slimmer me, taken on one of my first dates with my husband.

When I showed him the photos, his face lit up. "Wow, look at that!" he said. "It's my old Plymouth!"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Just how drastically can the weather change in half a day?

They say that everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it. I do something. On a bitter cold day I call in sick, pull the covers back over my head, and make the world go away.

But even I might have been caught flat-footed in Fairfield, Montana on Christmas Eve, 1924. At noon it was 63 degrees Fahrenheit, a balmy afternoon to get in that last minute shopping. Well, I hope any shopper who was going to be out that evening spreading good cheer picked up a pair of yak fur-lined mittens for themselves because by midnight the mercury had plummeted to 21 degrees below zero. That's a drop of 84 degrees in 12 hours!

Santa Claus didn't check the forecast that Christmas, reindeered into town at night wearing Bermuda shorts, and had to be treated for frostbite at the local hospital.
