May Day!

Time Flies - Michael Alltshuler (

Thought for the Week

May Day, May Day!

April’s been shot down

and I fear I May be next!

I’ll try and use my time well

and May-be I can last a little longer.


Remember, every day is a gift, and the best way to honor the Giver is to use it well.

“Own time or time will own you.” ~Brian Norgard

“Life, if well lived, is long enough.” ~Seneca

“Life isn’t a matter of milestones but of moments.” ~Rose Kennedy

“The future starts today, not tomorrow.” ~Pope John Paul II

“Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.”  ~Anthony G. Oettinger

“You can’t turn back the clock. But you can wind it up again.” ~Bonnie Prudden

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” ~Anne Frank

  4. Time flies like an arrow. Yup
    Fruit flies like a banana. So seeing fruit flies eating a banana, and simultaneously seeing a banana exiting a kitchen at high speed.

  5. Love this, Mitch. Made me smile again! I have a quote on my wall from the poet Mary Oliver: “What do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” It keeps me focused on what’s really important.

  7. Great quotes, Mitch. What about the old, redundant, conversation killer “Time flies when you’re having fun?” Maybe if we chose to be bored each day will feel like a year. 🙂

  10. This is a very weird May Day for me. I logged onto Google maps and put in our street address so I could get the directions to a place of business. Guess what I saw? Me, standing in our front yard near the street, looking down at my phone. So I’m on Google street view now. Very weird indeed.

  14. Anne Frank’s quotes always blow me away. Tragic that we lost such a brilliant mind at such a young age to such horrible evil.
