I think I am ready to head out for three days at Mom's including a visit on Thursday from my friend Mark. I've written today's entry and quote question soon to be posted. Tomorrow's entry and quote question set to be posted tomorrow Morning (on the blog you can set posts to be posted at a future date) and Thursday's reminder of no blog entry and quote question to be posted Thursday morning. I haven't done Friday's entry yet but since a relative/client will be visiting Friday morning you may not see an entry on Friday until the afternoon.
Today we are about signs. First up is a sign of our economy:
I don't know about this trend but I think I like it. I am of the opinion that us older dudes and ladies have a much better work ethic than the younger ones and maybe that goes into why we are taking over the temporary jobs.
Next up is a sign that we should all move to South Carolina and bug DR to take us places, especially the place in the following article:
I am going out right now to look for a shovel and a good deal on airline tickets!
Next up is a sign that young kids need to be careful and their parents need to be more aware:
It always makes me angry when scam artists take advantage of the innocent or the elderly.
Yesterday's quote was authored by Annie Dillard. "We meet no Stranger, but Ourselves." Was an authored by a poet born in 1830 and dying to young in 1886. Reclusive during her lifetime she wrote poetry which she kept private and which was, with few exceptions, unknown until its discovery after her death. Most of the poems were written in just six years, between 1858 and 1864. She bound them into small volumes she called fascicles, and forty of these were found in her room at her death. To find out this famous poet you would have to know that her writings were described as "Bawdy: Shakespeare and Sexual Symbolism." Find out more about that description and you can tell me who authored today's quote.
