Quote du jour/Winston Churchill



An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later.
Winston Churchill

  3. This is a lovely point of view. We don't do it in Hawaii but I have to remember this when I call the mainland.

  4. Kay, I read that Hawaii doesn't do it. What an interesting country we live in. I love it that not every state does everything the other does. :<)

    Kay and Pamela, thank you. I am so, so fond of that man. I hadn't seen this picture before and I just love that impish look.

  6. Colleen, that is so true, though Tom says he's going to work in the dark again. It has taken me till now to get used to it. I was very sleepy on Sunday and Monday.
