I wish I could remember some of the quotes that I have enjoyed over the years. The two that stick with me the most are:

· The trouble with reality is there’s no background music – unknown

· Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler – Einstein

There are so many more but I just can’t dig them out of my mental Rolodex.

My recall and memory used to be grand. No more though. I have such a hard time remembering things these days. In times past, I could read something and remember it almost word for word. And I loved trivia. Things like – the Queen Mary ship travels 2 inches on 1 gallon of fuel. I don’t know why I remember that useless bit of information.

One of my favorite places to go for quirky quotes and quips is Jack Handy. That man has such a twisted brain!

· If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

Coach & I went to the gun range today. I don’t like guns. I’ve never owned guns. And I’ve only shot a few long guns in my life. Coach however, LOVES guns. He has lots of them. Long ones, short ones, fat ones, skinny ones, bullet ones, powder ones…. You get the idea. For Christmas I bought him a yearlong membership at the local indoor gun range. He invited me to go shoot with him today… I figured why not.

I opted to shoot a pistol since the last time I shot a long gun, big orange fiery flames shot out of the chamber… and I don’t want to experience that again! I’ve never shot or even handled a pistol before. It was fun! And I did pretty good all things considered… My target tells the tale… no shots on the X but most my shots were good body shots! I have a very short video of me shooting … It’s short because Coach isn’t iPhone video savvy… he tries. Anyway, if you wanna see the very short video, click here

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.
