HOPPING & HOPING, DAY 17: Sometimes....
Saturday, April 18, 2020
Have you ever had one of those days where everything seems to go wrong? I had one today or yesterday.... Only because now I don't even know what time it is! LOL!
seemed like everything I touched went to poop! this didn't work, that didn't work, something else took way longer than it should've.... augh!
But, tomorrow, or today, is a new day! LOL!
Hope your Friday was better than mine, but at least I slept!

Spring stirs under silent snow.~Terri Guillemets~~He who creates three to five haiku poems during a lifetime is a haiku poet. He who attains to completes ten is a master.~Matsuo Basho~~The only problem
with Haiku is that you just
get started and then~Roger McGough~~Haiku is a particularly Zen form of poetry; for Zen detests egoism in the form of calculated effects or self-glorification of any sort. The author of haiku should be absent, and only the haiku present.~Anne Bancroft~~A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up.~Mae West~~We must not forget that these men and women who file through the narrow gates at Ellis Island, hopeful, confused, with bundles of misconceptions as heavy as the great sacks upon their backs these simple, rough-handed people are the ancestors of our descendants, the fathers and mothers of our children.~Walter Weyl~~Your grandparents did not endure the indignities of a steerage journey to Ellis Island so that you could stand outside a discothèque and beg a wallpaper designer to take you in with him.~Fran Lebowitz~~I owe my life to blood donors. I'm forever grateful to people who donate.~Niki Taylor~~Donate your blood for a reason, let the reason to be life.~Blood Donor Slogan~~Give yourself and those in need an elixir of life by pledging your organs.~Mohith Agadi~~Nothing lasts forever, although you can seriously underestimate how long it will last in the meantime.~Robert Brault
