and sometimes Second Chances..

Pick up the phone, Make the call, Take the time,
Stop by...Send that e-mail or whatever...
Take the Opportunities Life brings you!

Just Do It!

we become better people."

Spread love everywhere you go.
Let no one ever come to you
without leaving happier.

only friends we haven't met."

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.

~ Albert Einstein

closed door that we don't see

"People are often unreasonable
and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may
accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are honest,
people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness,
people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today
may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have
and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.

For you see,
in the end,
it is between you and God.
It was never between you
and them anyway.""

— Mother Teresa,
found on the wall of her
Home for Children in Calcutta

and Tomorrow....

If you want happiness for an hour
- take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day
- go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month
- get married.
If you want happiness for a year
- inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime
- help someone else.

Let's Do it!
"Just want to put it out there, I volunteer for the Racine Raiders Football Club, thought it would be a cool idea to meet there for a game. If you go to the Raider website, it will give the schedule, if I know how many are coming I can get a section of bleacher seats roped off. You can cook out in the parking lot, come in and see a great game, and hang out in the parking lot and talk with the players. Just a thought. Let me know what you think, give me a date and I will again make sure a section is save just for Bradford people."

The Racine Raiders 2017 Schedule begins May 20, 2017!

It's worth your time.

You give but little when you
give of your possessions.

It is when you give of yourself
that you truly give.
Kahlil Gibran

When the power of love, 
overcomes the love of power, 
the world shall know peace 

Jimmy Hendrix  

Do not wish to be anything but what you are, 
and be that perfectly. 

St Francis of Assisi

"The whole secret of a successful life
is to find out what it is one's destiny to do,
and then do it."

Henry Ford

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.  
Henry David Thoreau

I may not have gone where
I intended to go,
but I think I have ended up where
I needed to be.

You have to have an idea of
what you are going to do,
but it should be a vague idea.

Patience cures many an old complaint.
old Irish proverb

 Wisdom has two parts:
1. Having a lot to say
2. Not saying it

Smiling is often the Best Reaction...

for they shall not be bent out of shape.

'Life may not be the party we hoped for...
but while we are here, we might as well dance!"

Some people come into our lives and quickly go;
Some people move our souls to dance;
they awaken us to new understanding
With the passing whisper of their wisdom;
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon

 Friends share simple, ordinary times in our lives,

Moments that become memories that stay in our hearts forever
... And we will never, ever be the same.

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer.
Always remember,
you have within you the strength,
the patience,
and the passion
to reach for the stars
to change the world. "
Harriet Tubman

"I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
~ Mark Twain

Whether you think you can....
Or think you can't...

Most folks are as happy as
they make up their minds to be.
Abraham Lincoln

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."
Winston Churchill

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude
from achieving his goal;
nothing on earth can help the man
with the wrong mental attitude. "
- Thomas Jefferson -

The successful person is an ordinary person
but with extraordinary determination.

You're the kind of person, 
Who's hard to forget,
A one-in-a-million
To the people you've met.
Your friends are as varied
As the places you go,
And they all want to tell you
In case you don't know:
That you make a big difference
In the lives that you touch,
By taking so little
And giving so much!

Thanks for being You! 

Happiest of Birthdays to You!


One of the beautiful things
about getting "older"
is knowing that your secrets are safe
with your friends,
they can't remember them either!

The picture below captured outside a Biker Bar, 
somewhere in Florida!


In celebration of World Smile Day...
Share yours with someone who needs one!!!

p.s. Everyone needs one!



The following smile is from Pam Petrick Monroe. 
Thanks Pam!

Old is Great
An old Woman was asked, 

"At your ripe age,
what would you prefer to get :
Parkinsons or Alzheimers?"

The wise one answered, 
"Definitely Parkinsons - 
Better to spill half my wine than
to forget where I keep the bottle."

More Thoughts from the
"You're not getting older,But you're getting better" file...

The Aging process could be slowed down if it had to work its way through Congress.
(Quote from Will Rogers!)

You're getting old when you're sitting in a rocker and you can't get it started.

You're getting old when you wake up with that morning-after feeling,
and you didn't do anything the night before.

 It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't remember anything.

  You know you're getting old when you stop buying green bananas.

When you lean over to pick something up off the floor,
you ask yourself if there is anything else you need to do while you are down there.

You find yourself in the middle of the stairway,
and you can't remember if you were downstairs going up or upstairs going down.

Laughter is the sun that drives winter
from the human face.

Victor Hugo

"Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends for it is one of God’s best gifts.
It involves many things, but above all the power of going out of one’s self
and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another."  

-Thomas Hughes (1822-1896);
British reformer,novelist

If you want others to be happy,
practice compassion.
If you want to be happy,
practice compassion.
