Thanks SW.
Here's my wisdom for the day...

I liked this one, and it reminds me of a lot of celebrities.

I drink, but figured you'd realize it'd be chocolate milk. LOL!
Really alcohol adversely affects me with the meds I take. I've been known to take a sip of champagne or wine during a toast. But that's it for me these days. : - |
Glad Sylvia is getting over her cold. : o )

An intellectual is someone who can listen to the "William Tell Overture" and not think of the Lone Ranger!

Well, I already knew I was not an intellectual...this proves it!

I'm with you on that one, Weegy....my mother loved those old westerns as my folks were from El Paso. She watched Bonanza religiously as well...I was born there, but grew up in L.A.

The light from spirit depths
Strives to ray outwards, sun imbued;
Transformed to forceful will of life
It shines into the senses dullness
To bring to birth the powers
Whereby creative forces, soul impelled,
Shall ripen into human deeds ~ Rudolph Steiner

Been there, done that, bought the tee shirt.


Now my life is as a retired person, mostly don't have to be there or done that anymore, don't need any more tee shirts.

Has anyone heard from Desert Pirate lately? Miss him.

Sylvia

Mackinaw, IL(Zone 5a)

He's not on DG any more, but I do hear from him occasionally. Sounds like he is doing well. He is active on another site, and has a political blog where he frequently posts.

He just had a birthday about a week ago, so I sent him a message. We had lots of pirates trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, and it made me think of him. :-) I had the pleasure of meeting him a year ago, when he stopped by on his way to visit his mother. He's a true gentleman.

Angie

PS Sent him a message letting him know you asked. I'm sure he'll be pleased!

evelyn,
What have we done! LOL! Some really great ones, by golly I think you've got "IT". : - )
I loved the quote about planting trees knowing full well that you'll never be able to enjoy their shade!
That sounds like something I'd do. : - )
Weegy, I've got the William Tell Overture stuck in my mind now, SLOL!
You are so right about the kids, and you raised a crop of great ones. : - )
Loved the John Wayne, quote kwanjin. : - )
Angie, please tell Randy aka Desert Pirate that we all miss him. : - (
He is a gent. and Lisa was sweet. Please tell him that Buddy Holly (the kitten we adopted from him), is now up to a whopping 13 lbs. He's graduated from bringing me lizards to live birds. (We catch and release them.) I was also wondering how Fred (the one-eyed rooster I gave him), and his harem are?
