Words of Wisdom from an Unlikely Source

A fresh cup of coffee sure tastes good on this cold, windy May Day – yep, it is still cold here in Minnesota!!  It’s only in the 30’s at the moment.  Will it ever end??

Coffee and the Sunday paper go hand in hand.  First it is the news section, then the variety and entertainment sections, the comics,  the sports section – well,  only the headlines, and then the ads.

Today, I found some great bits of wisdom from a very unlikely source!  It is the Menards ad!  (Menards is a competitor of Home Depot and Lowes but has been established locally much, much longer.)  I noticed some small print on the bottom of the ad pages and upon looking at them closer was surprised as all get out!  The small print wasn’t disclaimers, it wasn’t anything about how long the specials lasted, or anything like that.  The small print was more than that – they were words of wisdom.   So, I thought I’d share some with you…

-I think the next best thing to solving a problem is finding some humor in it.
-Sometimes it is necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly.
-Humor can alter any situation and help us cope at the very instant we are laughing.
-Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.
-Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.
-If you don’t invest very much, then defeat doesn’t hurt very much and winning is not very exciting.
-Nobody can be exactly like me.  Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.
-A person with one watch knows what time it is; a person with two watches is never quite sure.
-A clean tie will always attract the soup of the day.
-A smile is understood in any language.
-Never tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.
-Don’t wait for someone to take you under their wing.  Find a good wing and climb up underneath it.
-The prime ingredient is FUN.

Hope you liked these words of wisdom.  And I’ll be checking next weeks ads to see what else Menards has to say!

Thanks for stopping by…
