Bessie-isms and Quotable for January 7 & 8, 2017


*A Goodwill store takes the place of older siblings in supplying good, inexpensive hand-me-downs.

*We hate to see beautiful, pristine new snow turn brown and dirty, yet we let our hearts suffer the same fate and never notice.


Nothing is so soothing to our self-esteem as to find our bad traits in our forebears. It seems to absolve us.

Van Wyck Brooks
