There are some Forwards in my e-mail that have gems...

                  (Look what is parked next to us! better picture later)

Now for today's entry:

This has been around for some time, but friend Joan sent this and I thought it was good enough for the Shipslog (smile)

Six short stories:

  Once all villagers decided to pray for rain,
on the day of prayer all the people gathered,
but only one boy came with an umbrella.

That's FAITH
When you throw a baby in the air,
she laughs because she knows you will catch her.

That's TRUST

Every night we go to bed,
without any assurance of being alive the next morning
but still we set the alarms to wake up.

That's HOPE

We plan big things for tomorrow
in spite of zero knowledge of the future.

We see the world suffering,
but still we get married and have children. 
That's LOVE
On an old man's shirt was written a sentence
'I am not 80 years old....
I am sweet 16 with 64 years experience'

 Yeah I know it ain't original, but I like it.

I am slowly getting a handle on posting again. I am hoping when we get back in the Charlotte area that my Live Writer will straighten out.

I do okay here, but I have a tough time locating and posting the pictures.

Today is a moving day.  We head back to Belmont for a few weeks.  This has been a good break, but I did not finish my book. I still lack a few chapters. I did get to do some more research, but the internet connection is very slow here.

Nite Shipslog.


This is what  our neighbor had the nerve to park next to us:

                                                                           1956 De Soto

That DeSoto was one tough car.

Yes you are doing well with your posts. I enjoyed the forwarded email. Some are full of wisdom and some give a good laugh. I appreciate both. Hope you have a safe trip back to Belmont.

I'd not seen these 'shorts' before ... but enjoyed them very much!
That old mill photo is almost intoxicating. I mean, some people relax viewing aquariums or fireplaces, but this is really special.

Hope today's travels were uneventful!

I liked those gems you shared, Jack; lots of truth in them! I hope moving day went well!



Sweet car that DeSoto. Loved the stories told. But I must tell you the one about trust would be difficult. I hate to see anyone throw a baby in the air. I think it is too dangerous. Sorry to hear Live Writer is still giving you fits. I had trouble connecting to this post of yours. Glad I didn't miss it. Have a safe trip. Elsie is a cutie pie.

I feel your pain on travel wifi. Sometimes it's great and sometimes it's not worth a toot. When we went on our cruse a few years ago, I wrote the entries in advance and then scheduled the post over the course of the trip.
