Marje from DUTCHCORNER
gave me and two others a “Wise Bird Award” and said “These bloggers have a lot of very informative beautiful posts. They must be very wise.”
Marje, thank you very much for the award. I appreciate it very much……though I imagine it is a rare thing for a squirrel to win a bird award! Haha! A little joke there.
And then, there is this little phrase, “They must be very wise.” Oh, I hate to disappoint Marje. So here are a few sayings to prove that I am indeed wise.
“A fine is a tax for doing wrong while a tax is a fine for doing well.”
“Brain cells may die but fat cells live forever.”
“Relatives are like fish. If they stay too long, they begin to stink.”
“Not all lawyers are bad. It’s the 99% that give the rest a bad name.”
“Remain silent and they may think you are a fool. Open your mouth and they will know for sure.”
“the early bird may get the worm but it is the second mouse that successfully gets the cheese from the trap.”
“42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.”
“Light travels faster than sound. This is why people appear bright until you hear them speak.”
“An optimist believes that this is the best possible world that we could live in. A pessimist fears that this may be true.”
“A clear conscience is a sign of a bad memory.”
And now, I perform my duty to award this to three others on the basis that a) their blogs are very informative and b) they “appear” to be wise. The Wise Bird Award goes to………
a) Mago at 63 Mago ( this is the man if you want to learn about literature and history of Europe)
b) Eastcoastdweller at In Search of Isis (one of the most well read bloggers I have met and with a deep understanding of ancient writings ….I am in awe since I have no idea what he’s talking about sometimes) and
c) Janice at Pursuance of Truth (cause true wisdom is the pursuance of truth in everything around us and her poems are indeed full of wisdom”.
