Bo Derek

“I went window shopping today! I bought four windows”.
Tommy Cooper

Last year at this time, I caught a cold the day of Christmas and then my furnace breaks down on the same day going down to 65 Celsius before getting fixed, my car windshield was shatter from falling frozen ice snow off a transport truck that hit the driver side windshield. Lucky not at repeat of last year and I got by this year with peace of mind! 

Lets enjoy the rest of the next 4 days leading up to the New Year. 🤸‍♂️

Closing Quote 😥
“The virtue of anyone or anything is solely in our perspective. See gold, and there is gold; see lead and there is lead. If you see this thistle as a thorny nuisance, then it is a weed. If you appreciate its bright pink bloom, then it is a flower. It becomes what you name it. The power is in your choice, your perspective, your speaking.”
