Sharon, I particularly like the postage stamp one talking about consistency, something for some reason I have found as a strength for me but others struggle with it. The stamp image is a good one. I will have to come back to digest all these wonderful quotes when I have some more time. Good stuff!!

Hi Sheldon-Nice to see your smiling face I'm very glad you like them and you are a motivational fellow. Why did I know that about YOU. You'll notice I did comment before the 3 day deadline so you wouldn't delete ME. That isn't happening <SMILE>

Hello Kristen-Glad I could help get you going. Have a great week too. :-)

Hi Toula-Thank you. Glad you like them.

Hi JL-Thank you. I appreciate that. Enjoy your evening. :-)

Hi Gary-Thank you. I struggle with consistency and sticking to just one thing. I should think like a postage stamp. I always welcome your input. :-)

Hi Chris Ann-That is a good one and one I need to input the thinking in to. Have a great week. :-)

What an inspiration!  I really like the quote about the postage stamp too.  I misread the one about luck and your fanny.  Had to go back.  I made it bursting instead of busting.   I think I liked it best when I read it bursting.  Didn't mean as much but I had to laugh.  Thanks

Hi Handsome(Sheldon)-Just logging in this morning. I stayed up too late last night, so a slow start this morning, but it is very nice to see your smiling face before bed and first thing in the morning. Thank you for the nice treat. Means a lot. Glad you liked the Fri photo. Thought you would. So do you have a named picked out out for the newest little guy? Will you be sharing pics with us? BTW-I noticed something. Unless I missed it yesterday or you have this morning you quietly hadn't posted since Fri. NO big announcement to get you a HUGE hijacking. Good thinking. I'm sure you probably were commenting but at least NO hijacking. Your video on that was pretty funny though. You look like you are in a padded room when you do them though. I have to learn how to do that yet. I don't know how but it is very much something I want and need to learn.  Have a terrific day and thank you for the late night and early morning smile. (((((HUG)))) for you. :-)
