Jim worked at Borders, Waldenbooks, and Brentano’s for 35+ years, so it was a sad day when Borders went bankrupt a couple of years ago. When they had their going-out-of-business sale, he and I bought as many books as we could without going overboard. We went overboard….
One of the books I bought is If Ignorance Is Bliss, Why Aren’t There More Happy People? by John Lloyd & John Mitchinson (IBN 978-0-307-46066-0), subtitled “Smart Quotes For Dumb Times.” Considering that Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations was one of my favorite books when I was young, I knew that If Ignorance Is Bliss… would be a joy to read.
I started reading it a few days ago and got the bright idea to share some of the quotations on Facebook. Initially, I simply posted a quote. Then I got an even brighter idea to let Zoey the Cool Cat post the quotations on Facebook. Each day I use a different picture of Zoey the Cool Cat with a different quotation. (Smile if you used to watch Uncle Fester each week.)
Here is today’s contribution to Facebook:
A great prediction of things to come because she truly loves to sit on things, and the smaller the better!
That picture was taken just a couple of days after we had rescued her from the El Cajon Animal Shelter and given her a forever home.
The vet estimated that she was about a year old, which would make her about 7½ years old now. It’s hard to believe she’s brought so much fun and laughter to our home for 6½ years already. I’m voting for at least another 6½ years!
If you want to see daily pictures of Zoey the Cool Cat, simply follow us on Facebook. If you have a Facebook page, especially a business page, that needs some LIKEs, let me know in the comments below. If everyone reads through the comments to see who needs LIKEs, we can help each other!
