It Ain't Over Til It's Over

Funny Quote of the Day was brought to us by Mr. Yogi Berra - He said, "If you ask me anything I don't know, I'm not going to answer." Good Point. I hereby vow that I shall do the same!

I love Yogi Berra... he had a way of saying things that gave you a smile, all the while knowing, he made damn good sense (maybe more so than a lot of others). So many great quotations by him. Another favorite of mine is this: 'Once, Yogi's wife Carmen asked, "Yogi, you are from St. Louis, we live in New Jersey, and you played ball in New York. If you go before I do, where would you like me to have you buried?" Yogi replied, "Surprise me." ' ;)

So anyway, it's Sunday night alright, but the weekend isn't over just yet (unless you're one of my rare subscribers, then it is Monday)! Either way, I'm treasuring every last fleeting second.

Just got back from a very enjoyable visit to my parents' house... had "umpteen" cups of coffee, and listened to music talking with my Mom while Dad was in and out of the room. That's how he does, he'll go into the den and watch TVLand for a while, then come back in the kitchen, and so on, and so forth for the entire duration of my visit. I helped Dad check his sugar, it was 158, gave him his Glucophage dosage, and served him a bowl of soup. It's really great that he is still doing o.k. on those pills and doesn't have to mess with the Insulin shots anymore.

Played the Piano for a moment while I was there, sang "Book of Love", "Daddy's Hands" (for Daddy of course), and "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life". That was about all I had time for because Dad had to turn the country music back up on T.V. as he was watching CMT by this time. Still obsessed, Dad is, about me joining the Grand Ole Opry, and in turn, "making a Million dollars" (Dad's words). Boy I just can't wait to get his age (if I make it), and hopefully I can survive the downward spiral. What a world this is.

That's about it... oh but before I forget, I have to include something about our April NaBloPoMo theme, "Letters"... I was thinking on the book, "The Scarlet Letter", which was turned into a pretty decent movie I guess you could say.

Very interesting storyline, and especially for the times, was probably quite controversial. Anyone else ever read it? Did you like it? Or what was your whole take on the story?

Stay tuned... Monday is coming up... Right after these messages!

My favorite Yogi Berra quote is "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded."

The only thing I remember about The Scarlet Letter was Demi Moore was in it. That's it. ;-)

Cool, I always wanted to learn to play the piano but never got around to it. Had an electronic keyboard but gave it away a few weeks ago on Yahoo Freecycle.

Daddy's Hands is a nice song, but it's not about my Daddy.

Glad your visit was a good one.

Haven't seen the movie or read the book.
