  7. Haha!
    And here’s another thought – a feather duster is actually useful!

  10. It’s almost funny but it’s not funny. My friend’s dad was depressed after he retired and felt he was no body anymore. In a human world, he higher one climbs, the deeper he might fall. Thank you for sharing your deep thought.

  13. You nailed it Mitch. Peacocks are really pretty all puffed up with tail feathers spread, but feather dusters get the job done. Ever try to dust with a peacock feather?

    Brilliant use of just a dozen words! Nothing like succinct truth (with a bit of humor) to make a memorable point.

    Hey, all, for the record: I didn’t write the quip in the picture. Just found it, liked it, and attached the Scripture verse.

    Mitch, speaking of Humility and Peacocks, why don’t you tell us the story of when you were attacked while trying to feed “Joan the Peacock” behind your green 1972 Chevy Vega Kammback at Lake Shasta and the meaning of your faded memory of when your precious Ovation guitar was knock over and the upper right flair of the tuning head got chipped off?

    It feels sometime the memories of our great car travels together only happened like last summer!

    I hope you feel the sameway, Ray ..
