All About Town
"It's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years."
—Abraham Lincoln
1809-1965

===

When you get so that it takes great big troubles to trouble you, and little things to make you happy, then you are on the right track.

===

Suggestion

A garden is maybe the perfect place
To be in the summertime
No need for tiring, lengthy chase
To some distant climb

A spreading tree, a fresh-mown lawn
A few fragrant flowers
A deck chair to recline upon
And a book to pass the hours
—Dorothy Anderson

===

Speak kindly today; when tomorrow comes, you will be in better practice.

===

And then there was a lady who ate in a cafeteria where they make coffee the old-fashioned way—they urn it!

===

"When you're forever looking forward, there's no time left for regrets."

===

One man stayed at a new motel in Chattanooga where a guest jokingly wrote in the compliments and complaints card:

This morning at breakfast in your restaurant, I ordered two eggs, one scrambled and one sunny side up. And do you know what—they scrambled the wrong egg!

===

Instead of complaining because you don't get what you want, be thankful you don't get what you deserve.
