"Life's journey is NOT to arrive at the grave safely

in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in

sideways, totally worn out, shouting "HOLY SALMON..

WHAT A RIDE!"

So true, Nanuk

I actually believe that line is from a comedian/inspirational speaker named Loretta Laroche. (unless she borrowed it from someone else)

Here's a link to her site : http://www.lorettalaroche.com/
She's coming to my area soon, and I am very excited to be able to see her. My husband and I laugh so hard we cry. You can catch her on the PBS stations once in a while.

LOVE Loretta Laroche! I have a couple of her books and I've also ejoyed her on PBS. I live in Arizona and if she was coming here, I'd see her in a heart beat! Thanks for the thought for the day Nanuk. ~ Wanda

Bud,

Absolutely, I want to live every day to its fullest and be exhausted. When I reach the pearly gates I want to be dead tired with a smile.

Thanks for the though of the day!!

Bud -

Is that red, silver or king? Chinook you say?

Since my new job will be primarily concerned with domestic fishery enforcement, I think I'll need to get up to Alaska shortly after I relieve in August... I'm thinking just in time for the kings in September?

By the way, didn't Loretta LaRoche say that you need to come skidding in with a martini in one hand and chocolate in the other? The 2 Lisas found that if you order a chocolate martini, you have a free hand to hold onto... well, whatever or whomever you want! Those resourceful gals!

Martini Version:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
