Quotes from an Evening

This evening I had the rare treat of visiting with the families of
some long time friends. The weather was divine, the meal was
succulent, and the company was unparalleled. There were great

- Having a mullet means you are either a redneck or European.
- If you want to judge the fudge, go with the pudge.

I most humbly thank my Creator for I am fearfully and wonderfully

the University District. The bartender was really fun and the karaoke
was a blast. Of course watching Danny string things up with the Statue

On the way home, I listened to Kate Rusby and Joshua Radin as I drove
the bridge and enjoyed the moon shadows on the water. How much
goodness is one selfish sinner alloted? Evidently there are no bounds
to grace because I received a full measure of merriment many times
over this day. Now to sleep perchance to dream...
