Live your life passionately, live with purpose, make a difference, be all you can be, have fun, be awesome, stay healthy and most of all believe in you!!
I am going to have fun tomorrow and if you live in Central Indiana you can too. I will be selling BBQ pulled pork at a fundraiser to help my Kiwanis Club’s kids programs at the Zionsville Brick street market. Main street in Zionsville will be filled with stands offering food, fun and that thing you always wanted but never knew you did. I plan on being in our booth early and staying until late morning so if you come make sure to say hello. And if that’s not enough the Zionsville Farmers Market will open adjacent to Brick street. I am going to sneak over there in the morning so I can by a jar of Gazpacho from my favorite soup maker, and probably some homemade pastry as well. For all of you poor souls who live too far away why not find something special in your area and give yourself a treat. I find that far too often the days go by and we miss one opportunity after another to find enjoyment right in our own backyard. I think too many of us start with the assumption that we probably would not like a local event, I prefer to assume that I might like them and you know what, I usually do. In fact over my later years I have found all kinds of foods, events and performances that in the old days I would have passed up since I only focused on what I already knew I liked. I am glad I stopped limiting myself for I discovered that I was missing many things that were much better than what I expected. I know I am going to have an enjoyable weekend because I also will be celebrating the graduation of a granddaughter and grandson from a great high school. They both have done extremely well during the last four years and are going on to two fine universities. All my grandchildren provide me with great pleasure as they allow me to share in their lives. I hope your weekend is also great for you.
Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.

Dear God, please put another holiday between Christmas and Easter. There is nothing good in there now. Amanda Dear God, Thank you for the baby brother but what I asked for was a puppy. I never asked for anything before. You can look it up. Joyce Dear God, I read the bible. What does beget mean? Nobody will tell me. Love, Alison Dear God, is it true my father won’t get in Heaven if he uses his golf words in the house? Anita Dear God, I bet it’s very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do it. Nancy Dear God, I like the story about Noah the best of all of them. You really made up some good ones. I like walking on water, too. Glenn Dear God, do you draw the lines around the countries? If you don’t, who does? Nathan Dear God, in bible times, did they really talk that fancy? Jennifer Dear God, how come you did all those miracles in the old days and don’t do any now? Billy Dear God, please send Dennis Clark to a different summer camp this year. Peter Dear God, maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they each had their own rooms. It works out OK with me and my brother. Larry Dear God, if you watch in Church on Sunday I will show you my new shoes. Barbara Dear God, is Reverend Coe a friend of yours, or do you just know him through the business? Donny Dear God, I do not think anybody could be a better God than you. Well, I just want you to know that. I am not just saying that because you are already God. Charles Dear God, it is great the way you always get the stars in the right place. Why can’t you do that with the moon? Jeff Dear God, I am doing the best I can. Really. Frank Dear God, I didn’t think orange went with purple until I saw the sunset you made on Tuesday night. That was really cool. Thomas
If you’ve ended up in hell with someone, and you’re still mad at them, where do you tell them to go?
Recently, I was on a plane that had taken off and was approaching cruising altitude, when one of the flight attendants came on the public- address system. She announced that she was sorry, but the plane’s restrooms were out of order. The flight attendant went on to apologize to the passengers for any inconvenience. But then she finished cheerily with: “So, as compensation, free drinks will be served.”
The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have.
Norman Vincent Peale
A poor vagabond, traveling a country road in England, tired and hungry, came to a roadside Inn with a sign reading: “GEORGE AND THE DRAGON”. He knocked. The Innkeeper’s wife stuck her head out a window. “Could ye spare some victuals?” he asked. The woman glanced at his shabby clothes and obviously poor condition. “No!” she said rather sternly. “Could I have a drink of water?” “No!” she said again. “Could I at least sleep in your stable then?” “NO!” By this time she was fairly shouting. The vagabond still continued, “Might I please…?” “What *now*?” the woman interrupted impatiently. “D’ye suppose,” he asked…”I might have a word with George?”
“Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air, and you.”
A man parked his car at the supermarket and was walking past an empty cart when he heard a woman ask, “Excuse me, did you want that cart?” “No,” he answered. “I’m only after one thing.” As he walked toward the store, he heard her murmur, “Typical male.”
“Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”
Stay well, do good work, and have fun
