Bessie-isms and Quotable for January 30 & 31

Bessie-isms:

*Relatives may be unique, perplexing, wondrous or merely strange, but one thing is certain; we are stuck with them, good or bad.

*How you remember the weather of the past will mostly be a result of how you remember your childhood, good or ill.

Quotable:

Nature to be commanded must be obeyed.

Francis Bacon
