      Hi sugz thank you for your kind comments re my profile.

      There's a couple of Woody Allen quotes I forgot to add;

      'I'm not afraid of death, I just don't want to be there when it arrives'

      'I got expelled from my metaphysical exam for looking into the soul of the guy in front of me'

    Duct tape fixes everything except divorces, that's what superglue is for!

      I like nonsense -- it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope... and that enables you to laugh at all of life's realities.
      Dr. Seuss

      To all the creative writer here!!  Keep those fantasy cells working!!

    I loved your 'if you lose your memory and your wallet on the same day do you have to start over?'

    Gave me my first laugh of the day smile

    I have many, but for now it's 'three things in life should never be broken, toys, hearts and promises'.
