gas station vintageTraveling through New England a motorist stopped for gas in a tiny village.

"What type of town is this?" he asked the station attendant.

"All depends," the native drawled.

"Do you mean by them that has to live in this dad-blamed, moth-eaten, dust-covered dump, or by them that's merely enjoying its quaint and picturesque rustic charms for a short spell."

 quote 1811

"Practice the Pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause.
And when you pause ... pray."

playdohI was making Play-doh animals with my four-year-old niece, Chris, and her three-year-old brother, Neil. While Chris was clearly molding a crude but recognizable dog, figuring what Neil was making was a bit more challenging.

"It's a cat," he told me, "but a truck ran over it."

Sometime later, Chris had made another simple animal shape, but Neil had a rather flat slab of dough on the table in front of him.

"What happened to this one?" I asked.

Neil shrugged and said simply, "Same truck."
