And not for halibut, bass or compliments.
A real friend alerted me to the fact that someone is impersonating me on Facebook. That must’ve been an adventure. I don’t do Facebook, except connecting the blog to it. Well, my son, Chad, did that. So be warned, someone’s phishing for “friends’. Not me. Not that I couldn’t use more friends. I just want real ones, not cyber pals.So, I hope this finds you before the fake-fisherman/woman does.
On another note, I kinda wish someone would “impersonate me” for my annual physical, which I haven’t done except over the phone for the past two years. I’m researching foods to make me appear fit. I saw a troubling cartoon between a woman and her doctor. She explained her weight gain due to water retention. The doctor calmly said, “I’m afraid what you are retaining is donuts.”
I know what you’re thinking. It wasn’t me.
As long as we’re talking food, chew on these.
“Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.” Mark Twain
“If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.” Julia Child
“Cupcakes are muffins that believed in miracles.” (No clue who said that but I’ve thought it.)
Well, all who read this blog may not consider me your friend, but I like this quote from someone.
“I want to be the reason you look down at your phone and smile, then walk into a pole.”
Or when you see one of these posts show up on your screen, your first thought isn’t “delete.”
True friends are life preservers, hope extenders. They help you hold on when you want to let go. They’re just there. As friends go, I’ve found there’s no friend like Jesus. And he calls us friends. Imagine that. (John 15:9-15)
Well, almost time for a lunch of broth with a side of naked greens. So I’ll leave you with quotes from two of my favorite authors.
“We are not here to see through one another, but to see one another through.” Anne Lamott
And, “Be joyful, though you have considered all the facts.” Wendell Berry
