An interesting quote

I don't know who to give credit for this quote, "Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without." I came across it while surfing the net. As I find myself in the midst of the end of another long term relationship, it is a poignant thought.

I was chatting with a very special friend this morning, who just happens to be a key figure in one of my previous failed relationships. We have only recently become networked again here on this huge information highway. Hopefully we can keep the friendship alive as we continue along life's path.

Sure wish that I would have seen that quote while I have been taking the journey thru my life...might have made an impression and stuck in my head!! Seems to me that when things end we open ourselves up to searching for answers or interest, something to fill that place in your life, and then we see things and hear things that have tremendous influence on us, things that click in our heads. Sayings and music and the words to songs those sort of things..I believe that we are given that ability when we are the hardest hit in our lives so that we are able to go on ... and see the doors when they are opened!!

An individualist you say.

This morning I tweeted a quote by Henry Thoreau, "There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root." It piqued my interest, so I set out to determine what the renowned author believed to be the root of all evil. I found a good description of his quote on the quora website. After reading that analysis I found myself searching for information related to his political leanings, which led me to this Wall Street Journal article . Perhaps you'll find those items as interesting as I have.

How nice

Two little old ladies in the South were sitting on the porch sipping mint juleps one day. Betty Lou had come to visit Mary Jean for lunch at her beautiful country estate. Mary Jean said to Betty Lou, "Oh Betty Lou, I'm just so pleased with mah adorin husbind - he went and bought us this beaaauuutiful big house with such a wonderful big garden out in the front. Isn't it nice?" Betty Lou said, "Mmmm, that's nice." Mary Jean continued, "And did you see that beauuuuutiful new Cadillac out there in the driveway on your way up to the house? Mah husbind done bought that big shiny car just for me - isn't that nice?" Betty Lou said, "Mmmm, that's nice." "And, and - did you see this beauuuutiful diamond necklace and these matchin goldin earrings mah husbind bought me? Aren't they nice?" Betty Lou said, "Mmmm, that's nice." Then Mary Jean pressed, "Now, all that's enough about me - how&#

Weathering the Storm

I have been teasing my wife the past 24 hours, calling her a "hurricane magnet". As I ponder my past though, I seem to be the "her-i-cane" magnet, while she is really a "him-i-cane" magnet. Although I barely remember it, I do remember my family evacuating Lumbertin, TX, to avoid the worst of hurricane Carla in 1961. The eye of hurricane Alicia passed right over my home in the Houston, TX suburbs in 1983. Before leaving the Houston metropolitan area I also experienced a Harvey like storm in 1995 named Allison , by the time it arrived in the Houston area it was more of a tropical storm that lingered and caused significant flooding. With the exception of several significant typhoons, whose names I either never knew, or more probably have forgotten, while on a U.S. Navy destroyer in the South Pacific during the early 1970's, the storms I mentioned were all before moving to the Phoenix metropolitan area, where aside from 120 degree summers and a few Ha
