Friday Jumbles

--Fav quote of the week: "The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right or pleasantly surprised." -George Will

--Gas dropped below $2.00 in Lake City, Florida this week. In case there is any doubt in your mind, there IS a God!!

--It struck me yesterday, as I was adrift in the orange sea of pine straw I call my front yard, that all of the beautiful songs written about majestic Georgia pines must have been penned by people who do NOT have pine trees in their yards or who own riding mowers with bags attached so that they have no idea how it feels to rake for HOURS and then bag for even more HOURS only to turn around and see that MORE pine straw has fallen. Futility. Sheer futility.

--I have decided to refrain from watching the news until my house sells. I can't deal with reality when I am believing God for a miracle.

--Have you SEEN the new guitar hero commercial with Kobe Bryant, A-Rod, Micheal Phelps and Tony Hawk? They recreate the whole Risky Business underwear scene while playing guitar hero guitars together...fantastic!

--And finally, I went to Starbucks to meet a friend this week and I didn't order ANYTHING. I drank water. One small step for Beth, one giant leap for her goal of having rock-hard abs by April.

George Will is right but optimists have much more fun, I think. That being said, I suppose blond optimists have much, much more fun.

Coming from a person who has not watched the news (or commercials) for many, many years, you will not regret that decision.
