Random Thoughts

You come from dust and to dust you will return. That's why you shouldn't dust. It could be someone you know.

When one door closes and another door opens, you're probably in prison.

If you answer your phone with "Hello. You're on the air.", most telemarketers will quickly hang up.

Sometimes, someone unexpected comes into your life from nowhere. It makes your heart race and changes you forever.  We call these people cops.

For Sale . Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.

They say marriages are made in Heaven. Then again, so is lightning and thunder.

Maybe the worst time to have a heart attack is during a game of Charades.

This "killing them with kindness" is taking way longer than I expected.

I started out with nothing. I still have most of it.

There's nothing scarier than that split second when you lose your balance in the shower and think "Oh No. They're gonna find me naked.”

One minute you're young and fun. And the next you're turning down the stereo in your car so you can see better.

One day you'll be able to tell your grandkids that you survived the GTPS 2020 (Great Toilet Paper Shortage of 2020).

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

Never miss a good chance to shut up. 

And finally - Can we all agree that in 2015 not a single person got the answer correct to the question, "Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?"

  • Now I'm feeling a little dusty

  • I've got a fair idea where I'll be five years from now. 

    • Yes Slugg I am getting to the stage where I think about that stuff more often these days.. That's an okay thing to do for a short while and then try and move on somehow. I like watching or reading biographies of other people to see how they interpreted things that happened through their lives.I always felt some comfort in that.

      • I watch " Goodbye Mr Chips" and all's well 

        • I have seen it but can,t remember much of it.

           

            1. My favourite. It's the story of a boy's school master. Stars Robert Donat and Greer Garson 1939. Robert won best actor Oscar. The ending always brings a tear to my eye.

            • honestly,. I am amazed at how you and PT remember these things. I used to love watching a lot of B/W movies. They really show a huge cultural shift in how our realities have changed over the years. They were hard years in a lot of material ways but very fruitful with belonging to a community of sorts.You knew a lot more people more intimately in those days.
