  • share-newYou’re walking in a forest and you find a black suitcase.  Inside it is one millions dollars and a piece of paper, stained in blood and bearing the single word “Don’t!”  Would you take the suitcase home or leave it?
  • Imagine you lapsed and cheated on your partner. You feel horrible and you know you’ll never do it again, because the feeling is so awful. Would you confess?
  • Would you live your life differently if nobody ever judged you for anything you did?
  • Would a fly without wings be called a walk? No? What would you call it?

You’re walking in a forest and you find a black suitcase.  Inside it is one millions dollars and a piece of paper, stained in blood and bearing the single word “Don’t!”  Would you take the suitcase home or leave it?

Take it home, invest it, and enjoy the possibilities of helping a few more people that cross my path.

Imagine you lapsed and cheated on your partner. You feel horrible and you know you’ll never do it again, because the feeling is so awful. Would you confess?

There are times that confession to a partner brings grief instead of healing.

Would you live your life differently if nobody ever judged you for anything you did?

Wouldn’t the world be a much different place, if instead of judging others we would judge ourselves…

Would a fly without wings be called a walk? No? What would you call it?

A fly without wings is still a fly… I hope that it was very close to its 28-day end-of-life. Its name would be Cruelty… and if I could catch who dismember it, I would hope for the chance to kick their butt up between their ears.

INANE QUESTIONS



I had no idea what to do with this one… Sure I had plenty of offense political thins to say, but I did not want togo there!

So I Googled and truly enjoyed this site- 101 Really Stupid Questions.

Here are my favorites…



  1. If corn oil is made from corn and vegetable oil is made from vegetables.
  2. If an orange is orange, why isn’t a lime called a green or a lemon called a yellow?
  3. If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why’s it still #2?
  4. Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections?
  5. If an ambulance is on its way to save someone, and it runs someone over, does it stop to help them?
  6. How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
  7. Who closes the door when the bus driver gets off?
  8. Why is there a light in the fridge but not in the freezer?
  9. If you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn?
  10. Why do toasters always have a setting on them which burns your toast to a horrible crisp no one would eat?

And my all-time favorite! …. …. …

If you throw a cat out of the car window, does it become kitty litter?

(Yes, I know it’s in poor taste… And I am not sure what it says about me if this one is my favorite? )


 FYI: There are many websites that say John Wayne NEVER said that quote?

INSTRUMENTAL CLASSICS



Classical music is often soothing… great background music for a dinner or to have on while studying for a test.

NOT this one!

I DIDN’T KNOW I KNEW HOW TO CHA-CHA

Why is it that when you take one step forward, the next day it often feels you have to move two steps back.

Is life really just a universal Parcheesi game?

Many times, advances with goals can be slow-moving… confusing.., even infuriating!

Focus on the good times and not the bad…

And then … … … …

Remember the Cha-Cha!

SETTLE DOWN WITH A GOOD BOOK



I have just started a new crime/detective series by Michael Connelly: The Black Echo.

The novel’s lead detective is L.A. Detective Harry Bosch. Bosch was a former Vietnam veteran who served as a tunnel rat in the war.

He is called to the scene of a crime and discovers the body of a former associate veteran and tunnel rat. Not all the facts line up to be as easily written off as a drug overdose as the department wants to do, so Bosch continues his investigation.

A great read!

I think I have stumbled upon another intriguing detective series for my winter reading.

JUST TAKE A PEAK



After the weekend snows, the animals in my back year may run, they can’t hide.

I now know the hiding places of several of the rabbit… and cats the roam my yard.

I may have even spotted the tracks of a raccoon going toward the neighbors?
