The Only Two Sure Things...

 ‘Tis impossible to be sure of any thing but Death and Taxes,” from Christopher Bullock, The Cobler of Preston (1716).

Going for an eye exam today, I got a chuckle out of the two businesses sitting next to each other near my eye doc and thought of that famous quote. Getting through the eye exam, the good news is that my eyes still work. Getting home from the exam and answering the phone was not quite so lovely an experience.

A friend of mine who recently retired to enjoy those golden years unencumbered by the nine to five drudgery found said friend in a foreign hospital with a serious life threatening illness. I guess the bottom line is, enjoy it while you have it and put some of the bullshit aside. In other words, go ride yer bikes.Tomorrow it may rain, metaphorically or literally.
