I got home from Mom's late last night. I did come home for a couple of hours during the day but then went back to fix dinner and do the evening things. Today I am glad and really have nothing planned for the first day in a long time. I'm just going to relax today and not do any serious thinking. So here are some articles today that will make you smile, maybe cause a tear or two, and then make you laugh.
First up is a touching article that will make you smile through a tear or two. Tucker's Toybox.
Five bucks and a toy for a good hot dog meal and making a young child happy. Sounds like the deal of the week to me.
Do you like dumb criminal stories? I do her are more than a couple of them:
My favorits was the one that had the robbery not on the wrong bank's deposit slip.
Embarrassing moments, we all have them. Some times the moments take years before we can laugh at them,sometimes we can laugh at them right away. I'm not going to share any of my embarrassing moments but if anyone wants to share theirs feel free:
I'll go with the Christmas card story as my favorite.
Yesterday's quote was authored by Edith Hamilton. "One may not reach the dawn save by the path of the night." was authored by an Australian feminist later living in London, published The Female Eunuch in 1970, with its feisty tone (and her own attractive self and unapologetically straight sexuality) assuring her place in the public eye as an "in your face" feminist. In her later books, including Sex and Destiny: the Politics of Human Fertility and The Change: Women, Ageing, and Menopause, drew fire from feminists and others. Less well known is her career as a literature scholar and professor, where her unique perspective comes through, as in her 2000 essay, "Female Impersonator," about male poets speaking as female voices, or her book, Slip-shod Sibyls: Recognition, Rejection, and the Woman Poet, where she suggests that a reason many pre-modern women poets are absent from standard curricula is that they were not that skilled, focused on the "morbid exercise" of wallowing in emotion.
