~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and enjoy the journey. - Babs Hoffman

The overemphasis on physical attractiveness in our society is frequently damaging to self-confidence. A case in point is the story of Peter Foster, a Royal Air Force pilot in World War II. During an air battle, Foster was the victim of a terrible fire. He survived, but his face was burned beyond recognition. He spent many anxious moments in the hospital wondering if his family - and especially his fiancée - would still accept him. They did. His fiancée assured him that nothing had changed except a few millimeters of skin. Two years later they were married.

Foster said of his wife, "She became my mirror. She gave me a new image of myself. When I look at her, she gives me a warm, loving smile that tells me I’m okay."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.

Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Due to a slight mix-up with pills on the kitchen counter, my husband will be heartworm-free for the next 30 days.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

A Serbian bank has posted the names and addresses of bad debtors on a website.

The list has been posted by the Meridian Bank in the city of Novi Sad.

It carried the names of 45 individuals and 17 companies from 1,000 clients.

A spokesman for the Meridian Bank said they'd been forced to take the measure because public prosecutors failed to take legal action against clients who hadn't paid their debts.

The bank hasn't said how much each debtor owes.
