What was the old amish saying, too soon alte, too late schmart

I ran across this on stumble upon. I'm approaching serious old age now and I wish I had adhered more to the message the cartoon is passing along.

Oh the world the super rich live in

One of stupidest remarks made to a not so rich person by a quite rich person is "money can't buy you happiness. etc, etc. Maybe not but being rich will do until something better comes along. and then maybe spend the night at a days inn or maybe this.

bring on the icebreakers

Since the leaves are mostly disposed of, all I have to do is wait for that first snow removal from my driveway. Last year was a mild winter for we here in the midwest. Lake Erie did not freeze up like it usually does. I don't know where the picture was taken but some winters it is possible to walk across our lake if you have the stamina and/or courage. I don't know why you would want to unless you have a daughter living on the other side of the lake in New York state.

It might be a good idea to let this group play through

Raking-A job from hell

DARN! I was so proud of what I did. I raked up the remaining leaves and there was a lot of them out of the back yard, and adding a good deal more from my driveway and finally a ton more from the front yard. I had a pile to be proud of. I still had some energy, and I was hoping for a "good job" from Hazel so I fired up the mulching machine and went over the back yard into the front yard until it was a job I was (1) glad it was done and (2) it turned out not bad, and then number three came in that night, wind preceding the first of the season SNOW. I woke up to leaves completely covering the driveway and some of the leaves that I had raked were back for a second go at me.


I'm finishing up Stuart Woods latest DOING HARD TIME. It is good as usual, but he's knocking off more than his usual amount of characters this time. It's should be called character one or character two and so on, I hardly got to know you. I like Woods like I used to like Robert B. Parker, you can fly through his stuff enjoying the trip.

CHOCOLATE potato chips, Oh be still my heart or to be more precise stomach

I do love chocolate, I admit it. Today I am adding to my schedule a pleasurable, I hope, stop at Target's to pick up a package of a new chocolaty delight. Target said the vendor will have them in the store today. I will report on the results {someone has to do it)

Human beings for sale

As aborrant as it was, it still is shocking to see evidence of the fact that we openly sold other human beings as if they were a head of lettuce.
