Summertime and the Livin's Easy
By Mona Lease

Hi, all!! It's summer - time for a dip in the pool - a barbeque on the patio - a good water fight - a boat ride - anything to smile or laugh and enjoy low bills and high memory-making times. With that...I submit the following to you. Enjoy...I'm headed to the patio with iced tea.

Be careful who you trust and who you tell your problems to. Not everyone who smiles at you is your friend. -

Sorry, I can't today. My sister's friend's brother's uncle's second cousin's twin's sister's step-son's half-brother's best friend's girlfriend's hamster died. It was very tragic. Unknown

While on the "Ride Called Life" - you have to take the good with the bad, smile when you are sad, love what you've got, and remember what you had. Always forgive and never forget. Learn from your mistakes but, never regret. People change. Things go wrong. Just remember...the ride goes on. - The Horse Mafia

If a man expects a woman to be an angel in his life, he must first create a heaven for her. Angels don't live in hell. - Love Style

"Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we cannot eat money. - Cree Indian Proverb

Two year old talking on a video: I got on a plane. I got on my seat. Right beside Chatty Cathy. She asks, "Who are you?" I ask, "Why are you so interested in my life?" Clearly I'm trying to belax on this plane ride. I tell Chatty Kathy to quit smiling at me...stop saying, "Hey, kid" to me. Chatty Kathy says, "Hey, kid. I have no friends. What do you want to be when you grown up?" I say, "I don't know,. I'm two." She says, "What's your favorite princess?" I say, "The one I'm trying to watch on the hi pad." Then Chatty Kathy asks, "Who you going to visit?" I say, "I'm not allowed to talk to strangers....DUHH."  I think to myself, "How I get this lady to stop talking to me?" Then the miracle happened. I pooped my diaper. Honestly - no one talked to me after that. - Shared video

Life is amazing. And then it's awful. And then it's amazing again. And in between the amazing and the awful, it's ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale, during the ordinary. That's just living, heart-breaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And, it's breath-takingly beautiful. - Sweatpants and Coffee

10 Things I Learned the Hard Way: (1)Everything happens for a reason. Either it's a blessing or a lesson. (2)You don't always get a second chance. Sometimes it's now or never. (3)It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. (4)You lose people in life, but the right ones will find their way to you and stay. (5)No matter what, you have to keep going. Better things will come. (6)When you clear the wrong things from your life, the right things start to happen. (7)You can't change how people will feel about you or what they will say. (8)Never force anything. If it's meant to be, it will be. (9)It never hurts to ask. (10)Be good to people. You never know how much time they have left. - Positive Energy

Remember the kiddies and our service people. Take good care of the furry and feathered ones out there. Be safe and healthy. See ya next time. Ever Toodles!!! MONA
