Always look on the bright side of life

“Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.” — Robert Frost

I AM enormously patient in some circumstances — with animals and the elderly for example — and usually I can just inwardly roll my eyes when I'm stuck being around the self-important and other-unaware, but honestly I've had them up to my eyeballs, and I'm busy, damn it. I have actual work to do.

(One of these days I'll write a little story about mind-blindness.)

But enough of this rant.

I'm hoping those of you in the US of A enjoyed a little time off this past Memorial Day weekend. Thanks to Canadian pal, Jim Davy, I learned that in Canada a day with similar meaning, called Remembrance Day, is observed in November, not at the end of May. Always good to know more stuff and not be ethnocentric.

My intention several days ago was to share this charming, happy little video with you, but that was before I went on the proverbial war path. Having gotten a few things off my chest, as it were, we now return to our regularly-sceduled programming. :-) I promise you'll LOVE this!
