  1. :)
    The only one I would disagree with is that sometimes the best thing you can do with certain crazy people is look them straight in the eye and don't be the one to look away first. Depends on the type of mad. ;)

  2. These are all fabulous.

    And thanks so much for coming to my party.
    It was so appreciated :)

  3. What a great list!! I'm gonna have to work on some of these, though...

  4. If you're the "madman" does this mean you can't look in the mirror?

  5. @ gotta point there. Zapping them with a power hose is another option :)
    @Mynx...thanks for the virtual party.I have returned home with purple stains all over my tush and a collection of strange underwear!
    @mom...oh its a constant work in progress with me!
    @mm's,just beware of power hoses! :)

  6. Words to live by. Love the: "Do rather than do nothing!" Kind of my motto...kind of why I get into so much trouble too, but it's ok. I'm good with trouble.

  7. Great list Possum! I DON'T have white high heels (so no worries there), DO old fashioned things like baking, canning & letting plants self-seed while I am gardening, try not to blame others for my life, but DON"T get enough exercise (sadly, but working on it). While cryptic crosswords aren't my cup of tea, I DO sudokos, jigsaw puzzles & mah jong to keep my brain firing, when I am not smelling my roses, lilacs & whatever else is blooming in the yard. And right now I am in the moment, which is right here in Possum's land!

  8. I usually drink before I drive...just kidding! lol

  9. Great list of advice, Possum!

    By the way, I absolutely loved your comment on my blog today. So romantic! :)

    I usually hit reply right in my email and answer comments that way, but your email comes up missing. I feel like we had this conversation already...and i think you sent me your email, but if you have, I've lost it...oops!

  10. love the blog mmmm

  11. good quote, and a damn good list of things to live by
