A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog. - Jack London

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
SIGNS THAT DON'T QUITE GIVE THE INTENDED MESSAGE?
Part 2 of 3 [Nov 11,19,30]
At a Santa Fe gas station . . . "We will sell gasoline to anyone in a glass container."
On a movie theater . . . "Children's matinee today. Adults not admitted unless with child."
In a New York drugstore . . . "We dispense with accuracy."
In a New York medical building . . . "Mental Health Prevention Center"
In a clothing store . . . "Wonderful bargains for men with 16 and 17 necks."
On a shopping mall marquee . . . "Archery Tournament -Ears pierced"
On a Pennsylvania highway . . . "Drive carefully. Auto accidents kill most people 15 to 19."
In a New Jersey restaurant . . . "Open 11 AM to 11 PM midnight."
In front of a New Hampshire restaurant . . . "Now serving live lobsters."
On a roller coaster . . . "Watch your head."
In the vestry of a New England church . . . "Will the last person to leave please see that the perpetual light is extinguished."
And apparently, somewhere in England, in an open field otherwise untouched by human presence, there is a sign that says . . . "Do not throw stones at this sign!"

A week later the joker received a heavy parcel...collect...on which he had to pay considerable charges. On opening it, he found a big block of concrete on which was pasted this message:
This is the weight your telegram lifted from my mind."
