Rules for Posting Comments
My BLOG is intended to be a forum for lively and humorous discussion about the topics that interest me, your humble host and entertaining servant. I encourage visitors to the BLOG to subscribe for updates and to become part of the education conversation and share your thoughts by positng a comment. However I do have some basic rules to keep the exchange civil, and to keep me out of trouble.
1. You must use your real name when posting. No one wants to know what you think until they know who you are.
2. Please be respectful. No personal attacks. Let's all play nice with others in the sandbox.
3. Spam or Solicitations of any kind will not be posted, unless by me......it is my BLOG.
4. Comments with profanity and slanderous remarks will not be posted.
5. Please stay on subject. Blatantly off-subject comments will not be posted.
With that in mind let the games begin.....and have fun!
Well it's here. The one we've been looking for......The Last Monday of the Year.
I find it interesting that we as humans measure so many mile stones or momentous occasions by the "last-something". We are consistently looking for the end, the finish line, the stopping point of whatever we are doing.
"The last dance"
"The last seat"
"The last piece of pizza" mmmmmmm......pizza "
"The last of the Mohicans"
"The last song"
"The last post-hole I dug for the fence I spent all day putting in.........I'm not bitter…...or sore"
Not all "lasts" are good.
Some are like early warning systems that tell you something bad is about to happen if nothing is done to prevent it, like the last pair of clean underpants.
Some are bad and cause rampant hysteria, like the last cup of coffee…….. COFFEE!!!!!!
In fact some are the worst things possible, like the last Sunday of summer vacation……totally the worst.
Some are bitter sweet, like your last child graduating from high school and leaving the nest.
Either way life is full of "lasts". Just remember, in order to have a "last" you must first, have a "first"…..first first……uh…..ok.
Whatever your next "last" is, I hope you make it your "best last", and follow it with a new "first".
What are some of your "firsts" and "lasts".......
Until Next Time......
