Friday Musings

Spent 10 of the last 12 days, 25 miles out in the North Atlantic.   A 2 1/2 hour ferry ride out to Nantucket Island.    Beautiful but pricey place.   Heard of a place that sold pizza by "market price!"    Missed John Kerry's visit to the island by several days - I only had one question I wanted to ask him. "Why the long face?"     On the other hand, did meet Liv Tyler on the Ferry boat.    I also almost bought a t-shirt that said " I AM the man from Nantucket....................." , but I bought a plain old hat instead

Marriage means commitment. Of course, so does insanity.

Ever wonder why divorce is so expensive? Because it's worth it.

It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

Of course I have played outdoor games. I once played dominoes in an open air cafe in Pittsburgh
