And Now a Few Words …

Okay, maybe more than “a few” … some thoughts and concepts …

~ You will never “find the time”; you have to “make the time.”

~ I suck when it comes to figuring out where to put punctuation in relation to quotation marks. Anyone else have that issue? Any pointers (something I’ll remember)?

~ It’s impossible to grow old gracefully when you’re working around a bunch of 20- and 30-somethings. Nope, it ain’t gonna happen. All you can think about is your graying hair and your expanding waistline.

~ Some of the best thunderstorms pass through in the middle of the night when you’re asleep. Sometimes you get lucky and a loud clap of thunder will wake you just in time for the storm’s end.

~ You’re never too old to learn something; you simply have to be open to the pssibility that there’s a better ( or faster, or less expensive) way to do something you’ve done all your life.

Expect more of this as my brain exudes thoughts …

  1. Hey, Kathy! Just stumbled on your blog and am enjoying mousing around. I noticed you have problems with punctuation relative to quotation marks. Not to worry. You’re in good (or at least lots) of company. There’s one simple rule that unfortunately you probably don’t need all that often: Colons and semicolons go after the closing quotation mark. And in the US, commas and periods go before (though some people think this rule is evolving and we may someday follow the rest of the English-speaking world and put them after). Exclamation marks and question marks go before the closing quotation mark if the words inside the quotes is an exclamation or a question; otherwise, they go after the closing quotation mark. “Got that?” she asked.
