Well I like fruit especially oranges. I decided your blog should be the first one I visit (not counting Debs). I know you will go to church today. Jibber-jabber with God, ’bout Deb.
And since you are my “seester” as we would say I have a present for you.
A quote and a song.
First the quote. I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love. That’s by your same friend “Mother T”.
And now your song I had a hard time deciding what I would sing. I thought I “best not do anything to risque on Sunday”.
‘Cause you got to have friends. Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, friends. That’s right you, oh you, yeah you, I said you gotta have some friends, I’m talkin’ about friends, that’s right, friends. Friends, friends, friends.
I sang that right on key with my Mr. Mike.
Eat oranges, candy, cake, and crepes today. It’s that kind of day.
Love, Shoshie who is known on another site as the Yiddish Yoda Master
Happy Sunday. When I first read the swlf comment I read the quote as MISTER T and I thought wow, I pity the fools that don’t listen to that and then I realized it was Mother Teresa and than I realized I was the fool to be pitied.
I like the Bible quote, as always but I continued reading and love the 5:26. of the same reference.
jim, pick another fruit, then 🙂 And do you see how I’m campaigning shamelessly for the fruit fly award? 😉
william, I was hoping someone would notice 😉 I love it when a plan comes together. Well, I had to go see what you loved. I am inclined to share with you the Message Bible’s translation of that verse: “…we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us are better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.” 🙂
Against such things there is no law…thankfully, there are laws against other things.
I love firmness, and fruit. But, I sometimes like fruit not so firm. Like peaches, peaches are much better less firm. If they get too not firm, they’re not so good. Its a small window, a fine line between too firm and too not firm. Crossing the line is just bad.
word verification: suassxzo I could go somewhere with that, but i’m going to refain. 😉
Mother Teresa must have been remembering her youth in Eastern Europe. It would seem to me that in most of India most fruits would grow all year long.
In contrast, those of us in colder climates know what it is like for a fruit to be out of season. Could that be why we of European ancestry seem to be so often defiant and warlike? We also seem to have a shortage not only love, but of the other “fruit of the Spirit”—joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and (especially) self-control.
momo, thankfully, we don’t have to do without love 🙂
jess, so glad you got that off your chest :p
andrea, you, too?! We do live in an orange-obsessed culture . . .
kranki, they are SO firm . . . yet ripe . . . just perfection 🙂
peaches, I mean, lawbrat!, you crack me up. Peaches are a very sexy fruit . . . why’d you have to get me started on peaches . . .
ssnick, so you’re saying if one is deprived of say . . . oranges and peaches for long periods of time . . . one could become . . . warlike? OK, I think I have seen that happen . . .
karen, I’m very flattered that there is even such a thing as a “favorite Susie quote” 😉 I must give credit to chchchchia, who thought my oranges could be inspirational to someone.
nikki, I completely agree about Mother T. Although often yesterday, I giggled, out of context, at William’s thinking Shoshie was talking about “Mr. T.” No kidding, 5 Clementines a day? Now, do you say ClemenTYNE or ClemenTEEN? Martha Stewart says ClemenTEEN. I do not. I don’t think you can distance yourself from Shoshie; I think once you have her, you keep her 🙂
ck, that’s because you are a nice girl. A lady. You have class. What are you doing here? 😉
squirl, thank you. So far, so good, but I’m sure their expiration date is fast approaching 🙂
bucky . . . first . . . I laughed. Then, I could not come up with a single thing that I was willing to put on this blog, which I still like to think of as a “respectable” establishment . . . so I was going to have to plead The Fifth, and then along comes:
peaches, thank you for addressing Ms. Foureyes. That’s it, it’s a “private stash” thing 🙂
Susie, I think the proper pronounciation is ClemenTYNE. Martha is not correct on everything. I really do eat 4/5 a day when they are in season. I eat ton’s of fruit, and veggies. Grapes are my favorite (purple).
And Bucky OH MY. For the record it is humanly impossible for anybody to secrete orange juice from any orifice other then the mouth.
I want you all to notice that I have refrained from commenting on this particular blog post! LOL I must admit however that quite a few great lines went romping through my mind when I saw it the first time though! ROFL
