Profound Sayings

Saying for the day” A good and profound saying can change a life! Much like a piece of my apple pie. Mrs. Smith

A number of you have commented on how much you got out of the daily sayings so I new that I had to share this with you.

1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk
beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the hell alone.

2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.

3. It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

4. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

5. Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

6. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

7. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of your payments.

8. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

9. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink
beer all day.

11. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

12. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

13. Some days you're the bug; some days you're the windshield.

14. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

15. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

16. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

17. Duct tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

18. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

19. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

20. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

21. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

22. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

23. Never drink water down stream from the herd.

24. Never try to find lost chewing gum in a chicken house.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life goes on.– It snowed again last night in Pigeon Falls, just a light dusting. The temperature is still at zero.
The DNR is out drilling holes in the ice of the Lake of the Loons so they can insert the bubblers. They will push down warm air and that will keep the water below the ice from freezing and bring oxygen to the fish. The bubbles coming up will keep the holes open. It should work. They have a big sauna wood burning stove to heat the air going down. Of course this might add something to Global Warming but that’s not their problem at the moment.
The lady wrestler known as the lightning woman because of the speed at which she dispatches opponents and whose wrestling suit has crossed lightning on it has made the town an offer. She will come and sing their little son if they can find somebody man or woman who can stay five minutes with her in the ring. The contest would take place in Marquette. It should be a sell out. She will take on as many as they want to send but only one at a time. Down at the Fly Inn they are trying to get somebody to take her up on the offer so far without any luck. Somebody suggested Big Rudy but he is sober now and far too sane for such an adventure. They have a week to find some candidates. Rumor is that Petrovich is about to offer $100 for anyone that can stay in the ring with her.

Today's Link-Neebone's Desperate Measures- Weird reality but interesting.
I had a good day. Pat and the boys are here. They went with Pennie to some kids place downtown in the morning. In the afternoon they helped haul stuff into and out of the basement. Betty got a base for a fireplace mantel ( no mantel just a base) and Pennie got a large cage for Maggie who has outgrown the old one. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Petrovich is only offering $100? His reputation is only worth $100 to him? I knew he was cheap.

Not much of a fan of wrestling. Verne Gagne was the best tho.

Pigeon Falls doesn't need somebody big and strong and brave to stay in the ring with Ms. Lightening. They need somebody smart -- like Tommy UK. OR, the poltergeist! Both would be even better!

I am going to have to tell my kids about #17. They love duct tape.

lol Dr John,
would that be the Paul blinded by the light on the road to Damascus?

Is that your way of saying this Sunday reading comes from
1 Corinthians 15: 35-39

I'll go along with that.
But Christ knows, nothing ever changes, less the people call for change - see Burma.

Maybe the buddhist monks were part of the corrupt military before they became 'enlightened' (in a past life)

Excellent advice indeed. These cracked me up, and there were actually some I'd never seen before.
