One never knows what one will come up with!

As we get older many of us think back to what we used to call “the good old days”. Depending on our circumstances we may even wonder how we even got to where we are today. I mean think about it – I am reminded of a quote by David Letterman years ago – “If what you have done is stupid but works, then it really isn’t that stupid at all.”

When we do sit down and think of our past as I do every now and then – okay probably more than every now and then – I love to recall various quotes and sayings by famous people of times gone by. Having gone to a grade school that only had a handful of teachers – another saying I think about from one of our great comedians of yesteryear, I am reminded of a quote by George Burns who used to quote: “Smartness runs in my family. When I went to school, I was so smart my teacher was in my class for five years.”

Some of you familiar with the sayings of Socrates may remember this saying too. “My advice to you is get married: If you find a good wife, you’ll be happy; if not, you’ll become a philosopher.”  I am proud to say that I am both happy and enjoy philosophical sayings. They say it’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but one thing is for certain and that is it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.

As I mentioned in previous posts, I love to write wild and crazy posts and I do it, not only for myself, but for those that read my wild and crazy rants. We all need a good laugh every now and then and so I am going to get wild and crazy with the balance of this post if for no other reason than to get everyone to sit back, smile even if only for a minute or two causing you to at least temporarily forget your troubles.

Unfortunately, we cannot gather in large groups at the present time but we may have the opportunity to gather into smaller groups if nothing other than to share thoughts and lean on one another in these stressful times. Should we have that opportunity and if you know that the place of gathering will have a big room in it, here’s what you might consider doing. As you enter the room, ask someone for a piece of paper and a pencil (make sure you have both in your pocket in case none of the group has it) and then write the following on the paper “There are footsteps on the ceiling” and then pass it around and watch the people look. Bet you all get a big kick out of it and eventually everyone will be smiling and quite possibly laughing as well.

Oh, and since many of us are confined to our homes or are supposed to stay inside instead of going out and mingling amongst large groups of people, here is one more thing you could do that might just bring a smile to your face. When you know your neighbor across the street isn’t looking out their front window, slip outside and run across the way and leave an envelope on their doorstep with a note written inside saying “You know what to do” and then watch from afar to see what they do.

Okay, that’s enough of my wild and crazy rants for today. Gotta go wrack my brain so that I can come up with something for next week’s post.

Keep smiling and stay safe and healthy. Until next time!

  1. Like my old friend used to say — “Who has more fun then the foolish?” Then again there’s an old proverb that says ‘Who is more foolish? The fool or the fool who follows him?’ — Wait a minute, that’s me? — The fool following the Foolish! Irwin you sneaky devil!
