Quote du jour

There is nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.
-Erma Bombeck


  1. That's an interesting quote. On the surface it is depressing, but I wonder if the deeper meaning is that we all should be children on Christmas Morning?

  2. Odie: I fear the Erma is no longer with us, but her humor and insight live on! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    'Fiddle: I think she was trying to obliquely point out the innocence of a child's joy at Christmas time. And yes, given all that we have been given, we, too, should be more joyful, and not just at Christmas time!

  3. It means hopefully you still hear the bell ringing at Christmas as in my favorite Christmas book....The Polar Express. Christmas through the eyes of a child is a wonderful thing. Always believe especially at Christmas.
    Merry Christmas everyone!

  4. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Chelsea!
