My quotes for the week are from one of my favorite children’s authors, Dr. Seuss…difficult to choose just one…so, I chose two: “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” from Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You! “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” from Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

My quote for the week is “Don’t start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday. Every day is a fresh start. Each day is a new beginning. Every morning we wake up is the first day of our new life.” unknown. Sunday night, Jan. 28, about 10 p.m., in Arizona, Buck and I saw what appeared to be a beautiful meteorite falling from the sky right over John Wayne Street where we were walking! It lasted for five or six seconds! It looked like a Roman Candle that my dad used to light off on 4th of July at our little home fireworks show. It was bright green, yellow, and pink. Another couple was sitting in the outside hot tub and also witnessed it falling. What a great way to end the day.January 31, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
