  1. Oh, I do love a good quote! My late father-in-law: "It's a great life if you don't weaken." This from a man raised in Hell's Kitchen and battled through the Great Depression with a screwdriver in one hand and an eight grade education in the other as his only aids. Loved a good cigar, bathtub gin and babies. Your own quote, Jen, strikes a cord with me, too!

    1. Hi Sue,

      I really dig his quote; sounds like he was an interesting guy. :-) Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
    It's my belief:) even though have to remind myself at times.

    1. Hi Elkos,

      How lovely to hear from you. I like that one, too. Thanks so much for your input (and your readership). Be well :-)
