I spent most of my day today buying Christmas presents. Not bragging, actually maybe a little bit of a beef…. but with our current lifestyle, thinking 30 days out or so – is almost a must. Especially when we have a big move coming up here in about a week, which will take us off the grid for a day or so. Can happily say now though, our Grand Babies will all have gifts from Oma and Pa-Paw under the Christmas tree(s)…..
I know you don’t want to hear about that noise, and I really don’t want to talk about it – so I’m gonna leave you with a poem my Dad recited to me all the time… enough that I eventually memorized it (and can recite from memory). Take your time reading it, watch the punctuation and it will make perfect sense… and pretty good words to live by……
I’d rather be a could be,
If I couldn’t be an are.
For a could be is a maybe –
with a chance of touching par.
I’d rather be a has been,
that a might have been by far.
For a might have been, has never been.
But a has was once an are~!
I do not know who the author is – but Dad loved it, as so do I.
I have some really great pictures the Dive Master took the other day on my dive, but for reasons I haven’t figured out yet, they will not load. As soon as I figure them out – I’ll share~ (for now – some more of my pix)
Have a great evening~!
