The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.

Horace Walpole (1717 - 1797)

Which is why those who lean toward the liberal side of politics and society are often railing on the tragedy of life, while those of us who are more conservative laugh at them.

Just to make sure my blog doesn't lapse from inactivity

My little girl, Elljae, emailed me a joke today. I laughed, but that was partly because she is such a sweetie, and she was using Mrs. Carter's email to send it. It was so sweet. She misses me, and I miss her.

But the joke still made me laugh. Maybe I just have a soft spot fot inane elementary schoolyard jokes.

Why is Cinderella so bad at soccer?

Because she runs away from the ball.

Ha ha ha.

I still smile, just thinking of it. Thanks, Elljae.
