Out and About – Week of September 21st

I’ve been spending the last couple of weeks moving out of my office and relocating everything to my home. In doing so, I’ve been going through my “stuff” and doing a lot of discarding. In doing so I’ve discovered that I have quite a bit of savable writings. Therefore, I will be sharing some of these clever and humorous quotes with you readers. Hopefully, they will brighten your day and make your life somewhat more relaxed. I feel that lately we’ve all been taking life way too seriously. Here are five things to consider for this week, with a promise to share more over the next couple of weeks:

The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.
Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
If you don’t have a sense of humor, you probably don’t have any sense at all.
Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.
It’s easier to breathe through a mask than it is to breathe with a respirator.
Yom Kippur begins at Sundown next Sunday. Shalom to everyone.

I’ve shared quotes from author Randy Pausch in the past. All of his quotes make a lot of sense and are worth reading more than just once. Here are several more:

“ ‘Dance with the one who brung you’ is a reminder about loyalty and appreciation.”
“Don’t focus on little issues while ignoring the major ones.”
“It’s not how hard you hit. It’s how hard you get hit…and keep moving forward.”
I’m one of those people who always has to have something to worry about. Some things are worth the worry, yet most aren’t worth anything, because there’s nothing anyone can do about it. I don’t worry about this, but had trouble going to sleep the other night because I was trying to figure out just how the pills we take know where to go. For instance, if you have a sore arm, how does that aspirin know where to go to relieve the pain, or if you have a sore back and a sore arm, where does that pain medication go first? Every day I take about ten pills. Several are for my diabetes, another is for blood pressure and so on. Most of the pills are tiny, so I wonder if they do much good. I think I even have a pill to help relieve my worrying. I’m pretty sure my dosage on that one isn’t strong enough.

We’re in one of those prime seasons for bike riding. For all you bicyclists out there, remember that you must abide by all the traffic signs the same way motorists do. Ride with the traffic and obey all stop signs. In the downtown business area, there are signs that remind you to stay off the sidewalks. If you must use the sidewalk, walk your bicycle. That elderly lady coming out of a downtown store might be someone’s mother. She is very likely to get very upset if she gets rundown by someone riding a bike on the sidewalk.

Here are some questions. Perhaps someone might be able to come up with a couple of answers:

What is the speed of dark?
How do you tell when you’re out of invisible ink?
What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?
If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights still work?
“If you think dogs can’t count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.” ~ Phil Pastoret

See you Out and About!
