Many things fit that category. I’ve said many times our Saturday entertainment is going to Yard sales. This week we found 10 good books we have not read for 25¢ each. You cannot always do that.
What made an impression at the last yard sale was the exercise equipment being sold at a fraction of the price paid. There were 3 practically new exercise bikes. A manual one, an electric one, then the electronically controlled one. There was a new digital tread mill and some weights, yet the owner was still grossly over weight.
I have said I need to lose 15 pounds, Sherry keeps saying she wants to lose 10 pounds.
That is one of the things that is easier said than done! (Most folks know that!)
There are more:
I am going to slow down and smell the roses, lose this stress…….
I am not going to get carried away with buying Christmas Gifts next year………..
I am not buying another pair of shoes!!!!……
I am off of drugs, that is it!!!…………………
I am not loaning another dime to anyone…..
There was a song in 1959 by the Essex,
one verse goes:
My friends all tell me
Go to him, run to him
Say sweet lovely things to him
And tell him - he's the one
Deep in my heart I know it
But it's so hard to show it
'Cause it's easier - easier said than done
In 1955 I took a trip with three guys, Dale, Doug and Billy. To this day I don’t know why, they were a few years older, I was 16 they 18-20. I had broken up with my girlfriend. Someone suggested, that I ask Sherry out. She was a year ahead of me in school, I knew she would not go with me. Billy and Dale had dated Sherry once or twice. I believe it was Dale who said ask her out!
(The skinny kid and the sophisticated lady)
After the trip Dale ask her for me LOL. The first thing she said was “Jack who?” (that hurt!LOL )She told him, if Jackie wants a date, He can ask. Stubborn girl, all she had to say was yes. huh? She just wanted to see me beg! LOL
(I borrowed a brand new 1955 Chevy to call at her house and ask for the date.)
Anyway I did ask and got a kiss the first date! We have been married over 56 years. But the asking was EASIER SAID THAN DONE!!! LOL
What about you, what was easier said than done?
Thanks for stopping by the Log.
Sometimes the harder something is to do, the greater the reward.
In the backseat of this car coming down Lookout Mountain, is when someone suggested I ask Sherry for a date.
