Out of the dark we came, into the dark we go. Like a storm-driven bird at night we fly out of the Nowhere; for a moment our wings are seen in the light of the fire, and, lo! we are gone again into the Nowhere

A boss asks you: how many fence posts are there up Tucker Creek Road?  Don't ask why he wants to know, say I don't know boss but by 2 PM we both will know.

A now sexist sounding quote of my mother's about running a household that I wish my wife understood:

 

"A woman can throw more out the back door with a spoon than a man can bring in the front door with a shovel."

Money may not buy happiness but it can buy you a favorable verdict, a favorable law, and a favorable legis-critter.

I'd rather die peacefully in my sleep like Grandpa then screaming hysterically like his passengers.

I worked on the summer painting, floor finishing and repair crew at an elementary school while in college. When I would complain about the job my boss would say "The door swings both ways, you can come in and you can go out". In other words if you don't like it find another job. I've used a version of that on occasion here when someone complains about the Board; "The sign-in swings both ways, you can sign-in and you can sign-out."
