“Successful people are successful because… they form the habits of doing those things that failures don’t like to do” – Albert Gray.

“Negativity looks down, anxiety looks around, positivists look up.”

“If a turtle doesn’t have a shell, is he homeless or naked?”

“Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.”

“When the riding gets tough, the tough keep riding.”

“Some people dream of success…while others wake up and work hard at it.”

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back – Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid Plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” – Goethe

Dream as if you’ll live forever, Live as if you’ll die today

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass
It’s learning how to dance in the rain!

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust our sails.

Bad decisions make good stories

A smile is a sign of joy … A hug is a sign of love … A laugh is a sign of happiness …
And a friend like me??…. Well …That’s just a sign of good taste!!!

Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

The second mouse gets the cheese.

Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Dogs Don’t Lie or Cheat, but they have been known to Steal.

I would like to find the woman my dog thinks they are!

Friendship isn’t about who you have known the longest, but who came and never left your side

Life is short!

Laugh uncontrollably. .. And never regret anything that made you smile.

Some Sing in the Choir when they should be Preaching the Sermon, and Vice Versa

From a Fellow Turtle in South Africa …
Funny how we have plenty of time and wait to the last minute. My mom used to say, “Thank God for last minutes, otherwise nothing would get done!”

Life is uncertain – eat dessert first.

Ponderin’… is like chewin’ on somthin’ till you get it about half figured out

“I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is.”
Albert Camus

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I’m not sure that what you heard is what I actually meant.

Don’t look for my vote… I am laying down my sword, selling everything and living on a boat.  No Property Taxes, No Zoning Issues, No Anything. If the waters rise I will rise with them.  If the VA can’t keep me healthy I guess my time left will be shorter. I am done.
But until then…. You gotta put up with me.

I am told General Patton said, “If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. Otherwise, you’ll find an excuse. A good plan implemented is better than a great plan on the shelf”. At least that is the way I look at it.

A friend once told me “I wish just once I could do something right … He was already setting the world on fire … just think if he did something right.

Management – It’s not what you know, but what you know you don’t know that counts. Example You don’t do your own Heart Surgery because you are smarter than that. You don’t have to know how to do the job….
You just have to know how to find the right person for the job.

May the FORCE be with you!

You have been weighed, measured and wanting …. Get er done

Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it.

AHHHH the life of a good Turtle in the journey’s of Turtle Island in the pursuit of ever lasting happiness.

House Boat Kentucky River Style
Boaters can’t go thru life without a Hitch
Being unique is accepted, and even encouraged
You can roll a Horse dropping in sugar, but that don’t make it a donut

I have a friend that doesn’t go to sleep – he passes out… He doesn’t wakeup – he comes too

Sometimes I tend to put off until tomorrow… what I should have done yesterday

Just a little Story about an Ass

The Pastor’s Ass

The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.

The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and it won again. The local paper read:
Pastor’s Ass Out Front

The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another race. The next day, the local paper headline read:
Bishop Scratches Pastor’s Ass

This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day:
Nun Has Best Ass In Town

The bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10. The next day the paper read:
Nun Sells Ass For $10

This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild. The next day the headline read:
Nun Announces Her Ass is Wild and Free

The bishop was buried the next day.

The moral of the story is … Being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery … Even shorten your life. So be yourself and enjoy life. Stop worrying about everyone else’s ass and you’ll be a lot happier and live longer!
