Good almost SUNRISE, Pooper Scoopers! The Earth didn't explode last night and I had a good night's rest WITHOUT any nightmares. So, I look at my "Famous Quotes" desk calendar and see today's quote as I move into a BRANDY NEW DAY!!! Another Day of LIFE God granted me! And it's Saturn-Day! Music Appreciation and Art and Play day! But, I RECEIVED ANOTHER PAYCHECK IN THE MAIL YESTERDAY! A Hundred Bucks! Gotta run to the BANK and DEPOSIT it! Wanna SHOP, maybe a little extra this month, at the Corner of HAPPY & Healthy (my corner Walgreens). Also need some medical stuff and sanitation stuff and there's some Sales on GOOD FOOD stuffs...gotta watch my BUDGET. $35 dollar FEE if I mis-time or abuse my BANK and overdraft my DEBIT CARD! Also need an EMERGENCY reserve...and got a DENTIST appointment, coming next week: Gotta pay CASH...I don't QUALIFY for any insurance. But the DMD has a PAYMENT PLAN...back to my MONTHLY BUDGET of my BREAD AND BUTTER MONEY (my Social Security Retirement Income). And, don't forget my second-in-my-lifetime TV that Monty APPROVED(!), provided I make a MONTHLY PAYMENT! Finances...glad I learned that when I was a kid and had to budget my allowance, which I received in an amount that fluctuated, depending on what chores I did around the house...a nickel for washing dinner dishes...a dime to dry and put away...a dime for taking out the garbage all week with an extra nickel for putting the garbage cans out for the Garbage Man...it was like that. I had ENVELOPES! I was pretty advanced in my budgeting....I didn't buy candy and garbage, I saved up for Dollar Toys, or Cool School Supplies and one year I even opened a CHRISTMAS CLUB ACCOUNT at my City Savings...got a pretty, chrystal platter to serve cookies to my dolls for doing that! Ugh. Life gets so complicated once you grow up!
So, today's quote was said by a man who was PROBABLY wise and smart, or his quote would not be quotable. It was Claude MacDonald (related to Old McDonald, the farmer? or maybe RONALD MC DONALD?). He was a 19th-century British Diplomat who said: "Opportunities are seldom labeled."
That is true, I think, too. But in the United States of America you must be CONSCIOUS of the Law...and in God's Universe, you had best MIND natural and physical laws at the same time! Eh, Witchy Woos? I went to Sunday School...and I MINDED my lessons!
HAVE A GOD-SPEED DAY!
