Thursday Link Up

I filmed this at the milblog conference Friday... Coming Home by Mark Wills. Have some tissues ready! I hope me sniffling in the background isn't audible!

Link up with Goodnight Moon

And just because we can all always use a laugh.... I need to share this email I got from my mom's friend Fran. It made me giggle!

A paraprosdokian is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part. It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect.

- Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

- The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list.

- Some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

- Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut and still think they are sexy.

- Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.

- A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

- Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won't expect it back.

- A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you will look forward to the trip.

- Hospitality: making your guests feel like they're at home, even if you wish they were.

- Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.

- I discovered I scream the same way whether I'm about to be devoured by a great white shark or if a piece of seaweed touches my foot.

- Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.

- I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

- I always take life with a grain of salt; plus a slice of lemon; and a shot of tequila.

- You're never too old to learn something stupid.

- Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

- Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
