    Thanks, Len. I didn't know if many of the "youngsters" would get that.  Also, I keep a picture in the attic.

    "Brillcreme, a little dab will do ya". OR "See the USA in Your Chevrolet, America is asking you to call". Oh brother . Now I better stop before I tell how you I remember when doctors used to advertise menthol cigarettes on TV as being therapeutic for you!.

    Dr. Rumack: "You'd better tell the Captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital. "

    Elaine Dickinson: "A hospital--what is it? "

    Dr. Rumack: "It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now."

    'Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat.'

    By all means marry. If you get a good wife you will become happy, and if

    you get a bad one you will become a philosopher.

    --Socrates (470-399 B.C.)

     

     

    Seeing a woman all dressed up for a

    trip to the city, Socrates remarked, "I suspect that your trip is not to see

    the city, but for the city to see you.

    --Socrates (470-399 B.C.)

     

     

    No better thing befalls a man than

    a good wife, no worse thing than a bad one.

     

     

    --Semonides of Amorgos

     

     





    Happy Running!

    "The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man. "

     

    Euripides, who probably would accept "person" for "man" here.
