We are currently on a cruise with our yacht club and I won’t be on line as usual. So it will probably be Monday before I get around to visiting everyone. Have a fabulous weekend.

    The Clarence Darrow quote is my favorite, but this was a good read.

    Nice quotes, especially the last one. Have a great time.

    I'd make a comment but it would only get me started.

    • June 14, 2015 at 2:50 pm

      I get that. I get started way too often. πŸ™‚

    It's sad you know how spot on several of these are. Our nation is becoming an increasingly 'interesting" place to live, less interesting to watch our politics unfold….

    • June 14, 2015 at 2:51 pm

      I agree with you 100%. πŸ™‚

  12. June 13, 2015 at 9:11 am

    Excellent- especially the first one. I think our current "president" ought to think about it.

    • June 13, 2015 at 9:12 am

      sorry pushed enter before finishing….have a great cruising weekend with your favorite pal and Little Bit!

    • June 14, 2015 at 2:51 pm

      Well there is that. πŸ™‚

    • June 14, 2015 at 2:52 pm

      I do that more than I'd like too. πŸ™‚

      They will even tell you how to die in some cases. πŸ™‚

    Governments the world over seem to be getting more and more powerful and more restrictive,

    • June 16, 2015 at 7:31 am

      Yes, and that's not a good thing. πŸ™
