Wise Woman


For every ailment under the sun, 
There is a remedy, or there is none, 
If there be one, try to find it; 
If there be none, never mind it.

-- Mother Goose

Mother Goose is right. Her version of the serenity prayer :)

Great advice and since I now have high blood pressure WTH? I need to heed it.

Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater,
had a wife and couldn't keep her,
cuz she liked hang'n wit da boyz in da hood,
so Peter got another lover,
but she was like the other,
always up to no good.

Mother Goose was a pretty smart chick. I try to live by Scarlet O'Hara's advice "I'll think about it tomorrow." Have a good one.

Who cares about a remedy when you can fly around on the back of a monster goose!

I usually just try to go with "ignorance is bliss" unless a bone is protruding. BWAHAHAHA!

Good words. And I, too, want my own private Goosemobile.

If I had a goose to fly around on I'd say FORGET everything...and watch out.

I'm pretty sure what she's talking about is wine. I'm pretty sure all anybody ought to talk about is wine.

Profound, very profound!

Sigh. Yes. Such simple words yet what a load of comfort they carry. Words of the wise.

While she may not have had a lick of fashion sense (I mean srsly - would you get a load of that hat? And her skin? Two words, hon: Sun.Screen.), you have to admit that she was aces in the advice department...
