for Six-Word Saturday

I’d planned to participate in Jo’s Monday Morning Walk, but after getting home from work and then having to resolve a computer issues, I’m beat and need to go to bed. So instead, I’ll share this bit of wisdom gleaned from the ramen restaurant where we ate on our first night in LA after getting picked up from the airport. The food was delicious, BTW.  Today I hope you have time to sit, eat, and be happy!

As the Weekly Photo Challenge theme is now two hours late in posting, I’m going to free myself and do a post anyway.  That likely ensures that the prompt will come up as soon as I post, but so it goes.  I’m tired of waiting.  Instead, I’ll share an Ogden Nash quote.  Have a wonderful weekend!


Shared joy is a double joy, shared sorrow is half a sorrow.

~Swedish saying


Here are a few quotes I like that I ran across recently in books I was reading.  The books were fiction, not non-fiction; mysteries, not classics or philosophy; demonstrating that there is wisdom to be found in many places.


Money without honor is a disease.
~ Balzac

Poverty wants much, but avarice, everything.
~Publilius Syrus
