I appreciate comments from readers. Last week a reader had me in tears when she told me how much Thoughts to Ponder has affected her life.
Thoughts to ponder — a woman crashed her car again today. She told the police the man she collided with was on his cell phone and drinking a can of beer. Police told her the man can do what he wants in his own home!
Another thought — it is important to love someone a little extra on their bad days.
Another thought — What do you call a group of rabbits marching backwards? A receding hare line!
