Default Brings back memories

"There are big ships and small ships. But the best ship of all is friendship."
Unattributed

chopstix on August 5th, 2013
I love all those little hearts over the i's!

abra on January 4th, 2014
funny chopstix, I can see them too.

skeeter on April 7th, 2015
This is exactly one of the quotes nine-year-old girls used to write on each other's "autograph hounds." Anyone remember those stuffed toy Dachshunds that came with a pen and pen loop? Back in the 1950s, we spent hours collecting our friends' signatures and cornball sayings.

abra on November 27th, 2015
We just had autograph books. This was one of the things that were written in them. Along with, 2 good, 2 be 4 gotten. Can't remember many of them anymore.

popular in junior high school: Y Y U R Y Y U B I C U R Y Y 4 me! (too wise you are...)

wvwoman on September 21st, 2017
i just remembered one written by a guy who thought he was hot stuff: "russian hands and roman fingers." (ewww!!)

Skeeter, my cousins had autograph hounds in the 50s. Wow, haven't thought of those in a lo-ong time.

Default Touching neighbor stories...

"The impersonal hand of government can never replace the helping hand of a neighbor." Hubert H. Humphrey

countessofmontecrypto on May 17th, 2011
Unfortunately, we seldom get to choose our neighbors. Or even vote for or against them.

opallady on May 25th, 2011
My neighbors loaned me a car with an automatic transmission when I broke my right wrist four years ago and couldn't shift my pickup's gears.

kb77 on November 2nd, 2011
my neighbor is an elderly lady who lives up the lane in front of our farm. she and her hubby use to own our place and then sold it and built a smaller house up front. she is the most wonderful old girl, full of piss and vinegar, and my kids love 'grandma helen'. we take care of her land and maintence and take her meals often. she then helps with kids...like a recxent surgery i had, i couldnt drive and she picked my kids up every day. my kids learn to help her with chores and it is a good lesson for them to help her, and the love they get in return is priceless.

wvwoman on January 31st, 2013
thank you, opallady and kb77, for sharing those 'warm fuzzies'!.

I live in a 55 and older development. Very quiet. The only sound you hear is the ambulance taking another one of us to the hospital.

darkyr on December 1st, 2016
My neighbor and I feed a clowder of stray cats, he in the morning and I in the evening. What is funny about the unspoken arrangement is that he started out filling a bowl I had for them on the side of my driveway. When I began feeding them in a more sheltered spot on the other side of the house, he continued to fill my bowl on my driveway. Eventually that bowl broke. He replaced it with a new bowl. All the while, the bowl sits on my driveway. He never feeds them on his own yard or driveway that borders mine.

SippyGurl on February 7th, 2017
a tornado ran through our part of the state this morning. we have bent street signs etc in our area, but a few miles away some streets were devastated. the kicker is, they were also hit badly during katrina. the best part is how the community pulled together. they went around looking for their neighbors, some helping others out of bad spots. it is heartbreaking, but no one being interviewed is screaming or crying as they look at the rubble that was their home. they talk of - wow a friends daughter and baby are on the news right now, they were in a building that blew away and threw them onto a car, both are ok - surviving and rebuilding

LLapp on February 3rd, 2018
SippyGurl, that was a riveting real-time report in the middle of the timeless comments column. I wonder how everyone is doing now.

"As I get older, I've learned to listen to people rather than accuse them of things."
Po Bronson


maradnu on April 10th, 2010
Would that there were more of this in American politics today.

montyb on March 30th, 2014
The Grasshopper has much to learn, Master Po.

LLapp on May 28th, 2015
The speaker has bad grammar, which threw me. He should have said either "As I've gotten older, I've learned" or "As I get older, I'm learning." And Google tells me that Po Bronson is a journalist and novelist. Feh.

Persephone59 on July 30th, 2017
Calm down, grammar Nazi.

SippyGurl on August 17th, 2017
po grammar bronson ;p

MamaB on August 24th, 2017
I saw bansai say once that he doesn't read the quotes until after he solves them. I'm learning to do that more. It let's me overlook those grammar/logic issues.

badbob on January 1st, 2018
the object is to solve the quote. if you can do that even with poor punctuation and grammar it is a testament to your skills

darkyr on February 23rd, 2018
Calm down, grammar Nazi hunter.

BriddlesBob on March 14th, 2018
Calm down, "calm downer" Nazis.

abra on August 13th, 2018
LOL, each comment was funnier than the last. I've got nuthin'.

kleinw2000 on August 16th, 2018
Calm down, commenter.

badbob on August 17th, 2018
the russet burbank is not a common tater

mtvoyager on December 14th, 2018
No one is listening to the quote. Just accusing him of bad grammer.

maradnu on January 21st, 2019
Frankly, if it's what he said, get over it. People use 'bad grammar' all the time in everyday life.

jimmy on January 23rd, 2019
There ain't nothin' wrong with that as long as grammar is a means of communicating instead of merely displaying an elitist affliction.

"It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows."
Epictetus

wvwoman on September 21st, 2012
i know i'm glad i'm not a man with the name epictetus--goodness!!

wolf on March 17th, 2015
Then again, maybe Epicetus is Greek for "Smith".

SippyGurl on October 17th, 2015
your epictetus are showing

"He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have." Socrates

puffybob on February 9th, 2013
More quotes about how the poor should pipe down.

jstrider on November 5th, 2013
In a way this is speaking towards those who covet what others have. I've noticed that when I finally get something another person has, I'm not always that happy with it.

montyb on October 22nd, 2014
I agree with jstrider. It seems the person I took it from is always a bit teed off about it. Who needs that?

SippyGurl on September 26th, 2015
lol montyb

jnoodles on October 28th, 2016
Give it back!!!!! Oh well. I guess I should be content with what I have left after montyb robbed me and ran off with my wife in my car. Life is good.
