With high gas/food prices keeping any number of us prisoners in our homes today, I thought this Proverb could be of help:

Simple pleasures.....are the last refuge of the complex. Oscar Wilde

Dig out some old board game or a deck of cards, walk/bike to a neighborhood park and rediscover a swing set or a slide, buy a bottle of soap bubbles, throw a blanket on the ground and look up at the stars, and??????

I'm beavering away on the computer and listening to the birds twittering away- it's a lovely sound.

I have read there's hidden luxuries within simple pleasures.

I have thousands of well-organized Lego pieces in my garage, from my growing collection over the years, and many times I go out there, be a kid again, and build me a house or a car, at 61 years of age!

My mother's wise words of wisdom: Die young as old as you can!
