Wednesday Whimsy

Let me put it this way -- I'm at the age where I'm increasingly drawn to activities that don't require my personal supervision.

Shuttlecock

Marriage -- a state of bliss where if one person dies unexpectedly, the other is the prime suspect.


Overheard:  "I like a politician who not only knows what I deserve but what else I want."


One thing you learn watching older couples in a restaurant is that long after there's nothing more to say, you still gotta eat.


Misery loves company and usually finds it, followed by a lifelong debate as to who was the misery and who was the company.


I dreamed I was at my own funeral.  I know it was my own funeral because I was the only guy there in a jacket and tie.


While life can hand you a lemon, it can also hand you a rotten potato, something to consider before you drink the lemonade.


Problem with people who never learn is that they go through their whole lives never learning, whereas people who learn receive a diploma that puts an end to it.

Monday Musings #10

It is possible to disagree without being disagreeable, assuming you have another reason to disagree.




The problem with having a friendly debate is that it can lead to some very objectionable people thinking they're your friends.


When asked, "Do you believe in miracles?" a person of faith replied, "I believe in God.  It is the atheist who must believe in miracles."


You can wait for a miracle, but a better strategy is to meet it halfway.


The hardest unhappiness to uproot from our lives is that for which we are holding a paid receipt.


One thing you need never fear in a democracy is ignorance without representation.


Do things while you can and while they matter to you, because neither is a permanent state of affairs.


In an age when manners and civility have gone the way of dressing for dinner, you begin to understand why people dressed for dinner.
