Today’s Thought: If you’re looking for a few great lines . . . Dennis Miller said, “You know there’s a problem when you realize that out of the three Rs, only one begins with an R.” Oscar Wilde said, “To lose one parent may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.” Billy Wilder said, “He has Van Gogh’s ear for music.” And Bette Midler said, “She loves nature in spite of what it did to her.”
Until next time . . . remember to take time to enjoy the WONDERs all around us.
