One of my favorite authors to read with my kids many, many years ago, was nice to revisit Shel, didn't realize he was also the author of "A Boy Named Sue" and "Unicorn", and now that darn Unicorn song will be playing in my head for at least a week I'm sure. Thanks all for putting up with my wrong dates and missed days in posting.

" Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be. "

Shel Siverstein

Said the little boy, "Sometimes I drop my spoon."

Said the old man, "I do that too."

The little boy whispered, "I wet my pants."

"I do that too," laughed the little old man.

Said the little boy, "I often cry."

The old man nodded, "So do I."

"But worst of all," said the boy, "it seems

Grown-ups don't pay attention to me."

And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.

"I know what you mean," said the little old man.

Shel Silverberg

"A genuine anteater,"

The pet man told me dad.

Turned out, it was an aunt eater,

And now my uncle's mad!

I luv your quotes. A day or two or more, won't matter with the quotes. They are good no matter when they are posted.

Saturday's quotes capped a very good week. Thanks for reminding me of Shel Silverberg and now both of us have the same earworm of the day.

Dates are dates and quotes are quotes, I enjoyed the ones you posted, no matter when. I am usually living "off calendar and clock" as much as possible, anyway.
thank you, Husky
