You Can Quote Me on That!!

      It is the first day of NaBloPoMo for November and the theme for today is favorite quotations so I am going to share some of my favorites with you.  A couple were said by the famous, and far more were said by those that touched touched my life.

“You can turn painful situations around through laughter
  If you can find humor in anything, even poverty,
  You can survive it!!” - Bill Cosby



 My mom was always quick to offer a few words of wisdom.





“If I can’t today, maybe tomorrow I can.”




   My grandpa loved to use this one for telemarketers right before he hung up on them:
Congratulations! 
You just won a free bushel of   horse $hit!" 


 My Dad was a treasure trove of sayings and funny quotations…



 “If you don’t like it, you can kiss my a$$!” 


 Or another cleaner version on the theme…..


“You can kiss ole rose”

(the rose referring to his rosy red a$$hole)  It is little wonder that I believed my Dad’s theme song to be “Kiss this!” by Aaron Tippin.

 On that note I will end with a couple of my all time favorite quotes from the movies…



Said Maria in
"The Sound of Music".





“I won’t think about that now, I’ll think about that tomorrow!”  
 Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone with the Wind”.


    And that is all I have to say about that until next time when I give you another glimpse into the life of a trucker’s wife.
