Thought for the Week
“Yesterday is experience. Tomorrow is hope. Today is getting from one to the other as best we can” (John M. Henry) Perks of being over 50: “You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.” “You sing along with elevator music.” “People call at 9 p.m. and ask, did I wake you?” “Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can’t remember them either.”
