New Kid on the Block.
We vintage folk have a new champion. I never quite felt Joan Bakewell fulfilled her promise of looking out for us but Warden Files http://wardenfiles.blogspot.com/
is daily doing good turns for decent seniors. He’s kind to animals too and thinks nothing of holding up the traffic to save a wounded bird. If you are fortunate enough to have him in your area rejoice. And yet I can’t help feeling I know him from somewhere. Mapstew thinks he’s going to like him. Pop round and tell me what you think
Pessimism, when you get used to it, is just as agreeable as optimism.
If I have a thousand ideas and only one turns out to be good, I am satisfied
I’d rather regret the things I have done than the things I haven’t.
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.
Victory is fleeting. Losing is forever.
Billy Jean King
The hardest thing in life is to know which bridges to cross and which to burn.
It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers.
If you can’t return a favour, pass it on.
I’d like to live as a poor man with lots of money.
And if you are feeling down in the dumps here is what Keats says:
But when the melancholy fit shall fall
Sudden from Heaven like a weeping cloud,
Then glut thy sorrow on a morning rose,
Or on the wealth of globed peonies.
And Kim(side bar) has some beauties.
