Adventure before dementia

Christmas Cards!

I'm having a lazy morning - no work in Plymouth till late afternoon, so getting a slow start, which, healthwise is good ... You see, I'm trying to be positive!

Anyway, the real reason for this scribble, is after I finish my cup of tea (have to get my priorities sorted) I'm off to post my American and Australian cards - so those friends afar, watch out, card is on its way!

Hope you all have a good friday!

Eternal refuge

30 Day MEME - Day 5 - Favourite Quote

As my icon shows, I will suprised if anyone will wonder what quote I am going to start with! Yes, Spike's words to Buffy, in the season 7 episode, Touched :-

"I've been alive a bit longer that you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I'd prefer you didn't. I don'y have a reputation for being a thinker; I follow my blood, which does not always rush in the direction of my head. So I've made a lot of mistakes. A lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, only one thig I've ever been sure of. You. I'm not asking you for anything. When I tell you that I love you, it's not because I want you, or'cause I can't have you - it has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try ... I've seen your strength, and your kindness, I've seen the best and the worst of you and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You are a Hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy"

Yes, read it again, and then it will remind you what the Spike story line was all about. One amazing character, with a brilliant story (portaryed by a superb actor, of course)

Don't tell me that you wouldn't love you beloved to make such a similar avowal to you.

Now a similar quote as my first from The Bible. This one is also seen on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westmeinster Abbey :

"Greater love has no man than this, than a man lay down his life for his friends" John 15 v 13

"Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no ill" - Psalm 23 (Great to remind you that you go "through" a valley)

"Casting all your care on Him (Jesus), because He cares for you" 1 Peter 5 v 7

And, now a final quote, one of many I could have chosen, from the TV series Blakes 7. This quote is said by Avon to Cally in the 3rd season episode, Sarcphagus -

"Regret is part of being alive, but make it a small part"
