I thought this would help to get everyone's day off to a good start. I found it at this great site for interesting sayings. You might want to take a look.

I'll be back later with a program update after I get back from the V.A., OK? OK ! In the mean time, let's have another cup of coffee.

Great start for the week! thanks - I'll have to send you the 10 Commandments for theatre sometime, or just check the "forward" of my theatre cookbook. Great advice! I'm off to do some work before "they" notice!

Hey Jim,

And how about some extra rows of coffe plants? I found some instructions for growing it yourself: http://www.coffeeresearch.org/coffee/homegrowing.htm "They" say it's rather easy.

Have a good day.

Excellent ideas all- - - if we just lived by then wouldn't life be great!!??

HermitJim said...

Hey Mom...thanks for the visit. I thought this was a good saying, but as you said if only we lived by idea it projected.

Myrna said...

Great words there Hermitjim.
And yes good start for Monday. I think I am losing (??) track of my days as this past few days all have seemed like Monday. But real good ones.
I think I'll start every day like that!! Good idea.

HermitJim said...

Hey Myrna...good to see ya again, Girl! How are things in the Great North? We are getting ready for a little storm here as you may know. The first of the season, but probably not the last!

As far as losing tract of the days...I do that all the time. But I'm a lot older than you...a LOT older!! I wouldn't worry about it a lot...it just means that you can make each day what you want it to be, ya knw? That's pretty cool!

See ya..
